The rendez-vous for the parisian intellectuals ...
Built in 1900 as a boarding house, the building quickly became a favoured rendez-vous venue for intellectuals who liked its location in the centre of Saint-Germain-des-Prés where they could rent a room for the year. Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Robert Kobayashi and many others became fixtures.
After the war the boarding house was enlarged to become a hotel. Since the beginning of the 1970s a single family, for whom even the smallest detail is important, has kept a watchful eye over the soul of this unique establishment.
