“Built in 1827, L’Hotel is the last place that Oscar Wilde resided, and holds a special place in Parisians’ hearts. The discreet and historic five-star hotel has 20 glamorous rooms, including a nearly 600-square-foot penthouse with a terrace a restaurant bar and hammam pool in the basement.”
Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Paris.
“In a quiet quayside street, this award-winning hostelry is the stuff of romance, Parisian myths and urban legends. Rock- and film-star patrons fight to sleep in room 16, where Oscar Wilde died in 1900 and which is now decorated with a peacock motif.”
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris sits a luxurious, five star hotel called L’Hôtel. Previously known as the Hôtel d’Alsace, the hotel is renowned for providing accommodations for the rich and famous.
