“I wanted to stage the codes of the late 19th and 2oth centuries, being warm without ever going overboard and avoiding
overload. To represent the Parisian chic of the past, I was convinced that one should not cheat and call on the best French artisans.” says Laurent Taïeb who has also created famous Parisian restaurant Kong,
The first surprise of Madame Rêve is the entrance, located at 48 rue du Louvre. At the corner of this immense façade is a small door, like the entrance to a speakeasy or a Japanese house. It is intended to be as simple as that of a 19th-century mansion, to be better prepared for the surprise when you enter the impressive lobby-café-restaurant. Another surprise awaits you when you take the elevator from the 19th to the 21st century – in only 3 floors. You arrive on the hotel bedroom floor and discover a giant planted glass roof on 2 levels, which occupies the old roof terrace of the building and accommodates 82 rooms and suites with breathtaking views of Paris.
Dressed warmly in wood, all rooms offer outstanding interiors and most open onto a terrace, which is extremely rare for a Parisian hotel. With carefully selected furniture, tailor-made fabrics and precious woods, each room and suite serve as a true urban cocoon for its guests. Madame Rêve Hotel is right in the center of the city and in the sky – a truly unique discovery for all lovers of Paris.
The hotel also offers great culinary experiences: an all-day restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine, the elegant Madame Rêve Café (with a decoration that reminds us of the splendor of a bygone era) and a panoramic restaurant with Japanese-influenced cuisine, La Plume. Its vegetal rooftop offers a true bubble of nature in the heart of the frenetic city. There are breathtaking views from every part of the restaurant – the impressive vision of the Saint-Eustache church and the discovery of an unprecedented Paris, with the blue roofs of monuments looming on the horizon.
Madame Rêve is a truly unique and out-of-the-ordinary five-star hotel– a hotel that will quickly become emblematic of the city.
