L'hôtel Académie 4* - Paris
PARISIAN TRADITION AND ELEGANCE IN THE HEART OF THE LEFT BANK
— Léonard de Vinci
In the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district and the famous rue des Saints-Pères, the hotel Académie embodies the French Art de Vivre where the codes of the past still ring true today. This means that the Hotel Académie is part of the unique spirit of the Paris Left Bank, the centre of cultural life in Paris.
The signature of the hotel
The successful combination of "Grand Siècle” tradition and modern comfort, the subtle combination of stylish furniture, gleaming fabric, wood work and period beams give the hotel a seal of refinement and sophistication.
The “just like home” atmosphere and the attentive but discreet service provided by the Hotel Académie are absolutely defining aspects of luxury today! An authentic and warm atmosphere is the order of the day at the Hotel Académie, making it a great place to stay.
A REFINED ENVIRONMENT
In 2015 the Hotel Académie underwent an ambitious renovation programme to provide our guests with an even more refined ambiance and the level of service to be expected from a 4 star hotel.
The new décor is inspired by the “Grand Siècle” to preserve the soul and tradition of the establishment. The Hotel Académie retained craftsmen from the great French artistic houses and decided to use nothing but the highest quality materials. Careful attention was paid to every detail.
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.
