Hotel rooms – Relais Monceau
4 star hotel near Opera Relais Monceau Paris 8
The majestic hallways give the tone, reminding the warmth and personality that the collectors’ mansions displayed more than a century ago in this very same neighborhood. Upholstery by Les Olivades, collection wall paper with frieze ‘Baie de Naples’ by Nobilis, pure wool carpeting ‘feuille de choux’ by Flipo, one of the oldest Parisian Maison. This ‘Made in France’ decorative arrangement is completed by lighting by a craftsman from Boulogne-sur-Seine and convex mirrors, called ‘Witch’s eye’ in French, staged by two Parisian artists.
The rooms’ numbers are embedded on the door steps; a discretion that adds to the private home’s feel that Relais Monceau offers. Attached to the rooms’ walls, Chinese porcelain plates keep echoing Victor Hugo’s trend of the Chinoiserie.
There are 16 rooms per floor, ten of which look over the Rue du Rocher and six onto the small garden.
