The Rooms at 4 Star Hotel Relais Saint Sulpice
A Place for Curiosity: Explore and Feel!
The hotel owners love to travel and their hotel resembles a large private house as an ode to a journey, full of warmth and charm. No room is the same. Each has decorative objects from different historical periods, various designers from around the world.
Some of the objects have come from the great antiques flea market in Saint-Ouen in northern Paris, whereas the antique Chinese furniture was acquired abroad. There are also colorful original pictures from the artist Jean-Marc Louis who lived on the Ivory Coast for 25 years. Many of the decorative elements have particular stories attached to them.
The rooms are charming and packed with different material to feel: beds are made of cast iron, the curtains have been designed by ‘Les Olivades’ and their color scheme fills you with the warmth of the South of France; trimmings are by ‘Houlès’ and have been used in the most original ways on the ceiling; the pure wool carpet has been woven especially in Northern France for this hotel.
Art is largely present: the engravings on the wall are all originals from the 18th century, and lithographs are by the Maeght Gallery.
The room numbers are engraved in brass into the Brazilian cherry wood parquet floor just in front of each bedroom door. A discretion that adds to the private home’s feel that Relais Saint-Sulpice offers.
When booking, please do not hesitate to ask the staff about the rooms so that you may choose a special one just for you.
The hotel has three different room categories – classic, superior and deluxe. The hotel is the antithesis of those faceless, charmless, ‘run of the mill’ hotels. When you wake up in the morning and look around your room, you will know you are in the heart of Paris, one of the most-romantic cities on earth – unlike some hotels, where when you wake up, you wonder what city you are in, let alone what country.
