The hotel was built in record time of 15 months. The artist who painted all the walls and ceilings, felt very rushed by the architect Juste Lisch, that he got revenge by painting one of the angels on the walls, differently. He painted one backwards, with his bum showing. His way of telling the architect how he felt about him.
The hotel is in a perfect location, a 2-minute walk from Opera Garnier and shopping. The hotel lobby is listed as one of France's historic monuments.
There is one restaurant, Café Terminus and one lounge, The Golden Black Bar which has a nice happy hour, 7 days a week.
My room was on the third floor, overlooking Rue Saint Lazare and a pastry shop. I slept with my window open so I could hear the Paris traffic below.
The Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps is a 5 minute walk and there are plenty of shops in between the hotel and the shopping center. Lunch or dinner is a must at Café Terminus. Look for my lunch review. It was wonderful!
