Created by restaurateur, founder and art director Laurent Taïeb, Hôtel Madame Rêve is set to open its doors this October. The independent hotel will have 82 design-led rooms, including 19 suites located on the top floor, either overlooking an internal vertical sky garden or the Parisian cityscape. Star suites will offer views over well-known sights including the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Coeur or Notre-Dame Cathedral.
Housed in Paris’ iconic Louvre post office building in the heart of the city’s creative hub, dubbed as the “new” Golden Triangle, Madame Rêve is set to draw footfalls with designer boutiques, museums and chic restaurants on its doorstep. Located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, the heritage building is one of the most recognizable in the city and a familiar address to Parisians for over a century. It is flanked by streets lined with cafés and galleries, such as the Pinault Collection and is located within walking distance to the Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre Museum—with whom the hotel will partner with for bespoke guest experiences.
A 10,000-square-foot roof terrace and sky garden on the fourth floor will offer 360-degree views of the cityscape and has an expansive deck where guests can sip on cocktails. The rooftop structure was inspired by pioneering engineer and architect Gustave Eiffel. Comparable to the concept of London’s Chiltern Firehouse, Madame Rêve offers the intimacy and privacy of a new-age boutique hotel.
Inspired by the travels of Taïeb, guests will have a choice of two restaurants, overseen by Chef Benjamin Six, best known from his time at modern Japanese restaurant Zuma. Mediterranean-style fare is available all day in the 19th-century café brasserie on ground level with an open-air terrace stretching out onto a private pedestrianized street, ideal for al-fresco dining. An elevator ride three stories up will take guests to the 21st-century restaurant-bar serving Japanese-influenced cuisine.
The hotel has been designed by Taïeb’s friend and interior designer Andrée Putman. In the ground floor lobby, the hotel’s 19th-century architecture and characterful design embraces its Parisian roots through thoughtful woodwork, oak flooring, velvet curtains and golden-brown hues throughout, reminiscent of the brasseries of the Riviera. As visitors move higher up the hotel, they are taken on a modern voyage through indoor gardens and wooden surroundings.
Furniture has either been custom-made or restored. Many items have been sourced by French artisans, namely Henryot & Cie 1867 whose distinctive chairs can be spotted at Le Jules Verne restaurant inside the Eiffel Tower or dotted around the Louis Vuitton Foundation art museum in Paris. Londoners may recognize the Pierre Frey fabrics, also used to dress the punchy interiors at sketch’s Parlour tearoom in Mayfair.
