Completely remodelled by the architect Vincent Bastie, this beautiful building from the Haussmann period is the first hotel project of architect/designer Charles Zana, and reflects his talent in creating living spaces where one feels truly at home.

As such, very different from the theme hotels crowding the capital, Le Marianne aims to be a “calming and re ned refuge where art meets the art of living”.

A member of TemptingPlaces, the property is tucked away in the rue Paul Baudry, away from the hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysées.

With a decor that successfully blurs the lines of traditional hostelry, Le Marianne presents itself as an exclusive private residence.

The Marianne’s location in Paris’ 8th arrondissement and its vicinity to the rue du Faubourg Saint- Honoré offers the business traveller immediate access to the business world: many companies and large law firms, both French and Anglo-Saxon, are headquartered in the area.

The hotel has an English-style Honesty Bar, offering refreshments, hot drinks and carefully selected wines and top shelf spirits. Guests note down what they have consumed and are billed at checkout.
