Hotel Lutetia

Hotel Lutetia

An iconic landmark located in the vibrant Paris Saint Germain des Pres area, Lutetia is the only luxury hotel on the city's left bank. 

The building originally opened in 1910, a bold transition from Art Nouveau to the emerging Art Deco style. Lutetia provides an authentic Paris experience and has been the center of the local community for more than 100 years. The 6th arrondissement of Paris, like any other, has its dark side. Its old streets contain many secret corners, secret shadows, and a mix of restaurants, bars, and other hotels on the left.

In 1994, it was purchased to be transformed into a five-star luxury hotel on Boulevard raspail. The new management took the property to a whole new level. The opportunities and challenges that accompany such work are beyond imagination. Hard work and love coexist with the elegance and grandeur of the hotel. Besides, the spirit of the hotel's past is still present.

The place has an eclectic combination of restaurant, bar, and lounge on the historic first floor. These include the return of Lutetia Bistro under the supervision of three Michelin-starred chef, Gerald Passedat. The unique Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Wellness Center is the hotel's 700 square meters / 7,500 square foot spa. It is all about health and fitness.

The area features a 17-meter swimming pool bathed in natural light. The rooms and suites reflect the elegance, fashion, and traditional features that make Paris unique. Experience extraordinary modern luxury in one of the city's oldest hotels, where tradition blends with modern technology and comfort.

The Hotel Lutetia History

Formerly a common gathering place for the political and World War II literary elite of Europe In the late 1930s. In the mid-1990s, it stood abandoned, but the memories of the past have now faded. For some, this place is a façade from a movie set, and for others, it is a backdrop for a fashion show. Moreover, caretakers and residents feel its spirit of glamour and elegance.

Famous guests include Andre Malraux, Igor Stravinsky, Jean-Paul Sartre, Josephine Baker, and Ernest Hemingway, to name a few. However, the story did not start with its patronage by the rich and famous, nor with its hand in history.

Built-in 1913, the Lutetia became a popular inn amongst Parisian artists, philosophers, and writers. These individuals included Pablo Picasso, Charles de Gaulle, Jean Cocteau, Guillaume Apollinaire, and Max Jacob. Additionally, Apollinaire is credited for giving the hotel its name, derived from "Lutétia," the Roman name of Paris. 

After World War II, it became the official headquarters of the French Communist Party. During its heyday, the Lutetia was a luxury hotel and a first-class establishment. However, many people fear that, like other famous properties, this one will become a thing of the past. 


With its beautifully carved Art Deco façade and enthusiastic Gustave Eiffel statue, Lutetia Hotel will always provide a very joyous atmosphere. Moreover, it can be regarded as a home away from home. It is full of artistic surprises. Even if you visit for the second time, you will always be in awe of the elegance and luxury it brings to all its guests.

If you want to taste your favorite espresso or one of the exotic cocktails, you can always head to Lutetia Bar. Besides, it is famous for its cozy atmosphere and rich French cuisine.
