Antoine Blondin wrote about his childhood and precious memories of the Luxembourg gardens. Come and write your own story as you wander down the sandy paths and admire the classical fountains of the gardens. Fürstenberg square is the ideal destination for a romantic walk and unforgettable memories of your stay in the 6th district of Paris…
Rue de Rennes stretching from Saint-Germain to Montparnasse is lined with shops that mark a road otherwise loaded with history with its art schools and movements. Opposite the monumental Hotel Lutetia, the Bon Marché is the 19th century work of the entrepreneur and visionary, Charles Boucicault. The innovative department store first opened in 1852, when it inspired Zola to write The Ladies Delight. The Bon Marché is famous for the zeal and tact of its sales staff. As for the building, which dates from 1869, shoppers can admire its sculptures and large domes of light.
The neighbouring Grande Épicerie de Paris sells food and products from around the world.
Our 3-star hotel is located a stone’s throw away from one of the high points of Parisian culture, The Odeon Theatre of Europe, as it has been called since 1990. Like the surrounding district, the Theatre has one foot in classicism, the other in innovative and modern creations, with works ranging from Kafka to Dostoievski as well as many contemporary playwrights.
Just behind the Luxembourg garden, the Zadkine museum and workshop presents sculptures by the Russian artist and major figure of the School of Paris in the very place they were designed from 1928 to 1967.
