With sixty rooms, restaurant, Spa, swimming pool, well-being space and tailor-made services, it proposes an innovative, chic and exclusive hotel concept.

The architecture was entrusted to Didier Beautemps andV aléria Sanchez at COS, and the interior décor to Alexandre Danan, European design Office Consulting, a harmonious duo who co-signed the project.
Built in 1866, before it was transformed, this building housed the headquarters of the Céline Couture House. It was important to respect the pervasive spirit of the place and the elegance of the Haussmann façade, paying careful attention to the lighting to create transparency, favor openings to the outside and create movement in a prism of undulations.
Everything evokes movement and travel in a place that lives in the spirit of the age, a world of refinement that is connected from the inside to the outside. Fluidity and dynamics fill the atmosphere for an unprecedented experience: you feel you are being welcomed in a private dwelling.
