An understated and welcoming hotel with a fascinating literary past

Built in 1923 near the Gallimard publishing house, over the years the Pont Royal hotel has welcomed an almost unbelievable number of literary Nobel prize-winners and other talented writers. 

After being taken over by the Hôtels du Roy group, the Pont Royal reopened in 1999 after work lasting two years. The designer Alain Marcot has kept the elegant façade and the outward appearance of a grand hotel and turned his attention to the decor which is understated, small scale and made welcoming by the presence of dark, mahogany wood.

Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Samuel Beckett and many other famous writers have played a part in the history of the hotel while unobtrusive wrought iron vines now bear witness to its gourmet aspirations and the enthusiasm of the new owner for good wines.

The lounges are cosy and overlook a small Japanese garden, the hotel boasts a restaurant of repute, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and staff in the hotel are attentive. The Pont-Royal has a contemporary, lively feel in spite of the traditional decor which is particularly evident in the bedrooms.

The hotel’s central location, between the Right and Left Banks is an advantage for those wishing to visit Paris’s large museums and the boutiques of Saint Germain des Prés. Rooms on the top floors have the best views of Paris.
