Hotel Pont Royal****, an historical
"Salon Littéraire" and more....


More than a distinguished address of the Left Bank combining refined decoration and thoughtful attention, Hotel Pont Royal is an historical landmark.between the river Seine and the Boulevard Saint-Germain. In the midst of the Faubourg, Arts and Letters thrive in the Salon Littéraire and the garden, where many existentialists and Nobel Prizes followed one another.

Its exclusive and intimate atmosphere is matching with an exquisite blend of contemporary and traditional design, made of mahogany wood, silks and stone. In the heart of the capital, this very special "garden" is two steps away from the Musée d'Orsay, a bridge from the Louvre, a stroll from Montparnasse and the Opéra. In this prestigious neighborhood, you find the antiquity dealers of the Rue des saints-Pères, the "Café Bohême" on Place Saint Germain des Prés, the trendy Café de Flore, and the Luxembourg Gardens which are a few of discoveries in store. The new restaurant "L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon" is next door, and the cosy bar with the lovely library, emphasises the literary aspect of this unique hotel.

Joël Robuchon is the executive chef of the century. In his restaurant, he is launching a new interactive conceptENJOY L'ATELIER DE JOEL ROBUCHON of the French Cuisine, designed around a central open kitchen, and surrounded by a circular counter acco-modationg up to 40 seats. It is open 7 days a week, from 11:00am to 02:00 continuously. The team made of Master Chefs is also preparing the breakfast and room service for the great pleasure of the guests at Hotel Pont Royal.
