THE HISTORY OF OUR HOTEL
Relais Hotel du Vieux Paris :
The Beat Hotel
The Relais-Hôtel du Vieux Paris has a history all its own! Built in 1480, it belonged to the Duc de Luynes and the Duc d’O and was once the dwelling place of Pierre Seguier, the true Marquis d’O. In the 1950s and 60s, american poets adopted the site and in the same movement created the “Beat Generation”. Among them were Burroughs, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Corso.
All the magic is there, right around the corner.The banks of the Seine, the Latin Quarter, its typical cafes and restaurants, the Flower Market, Notre-Dame, the Louvre. All the charm of memories is here, in the hotel which was the starting place for the Beat Generation.
Now it’s a charming 4 star hotel, a peaceful spot in this quarter with village-like atmosphere. You’ll fall under the spell of this vintage building bursting with poetry.
At the Relais-Hôtel du Vieux Paris you’ll find it all, right there on the street corner: the Seine, the Place Saint-Michel, the Flower Market, Notre Dame, the Louvre and Orsay Museums…
