Most Parisian hotels, for better or worse, fit comfortably into one category or another — the bohemian boltholes, the lavish luxury hotels, the impeccably styled minimalist boutiques. But like a lot of the best hotels, the Hôtel Montalembert defies categorization. It’s on the Left Bank but it’s far from bohemian; it’s stylish but not without substance; it’s classic without being stuck in the past. For its versatility it misses out on a bit of publicity, but there are quite a few old Paris hands who try not to stay anywhere else.
It’s a Twenties Beaux-Arts building, but the interiors as they are today are largely the creation of Grace Leo-Andrieu. Rooms are either subtly contemporary, with Christian Liaigre furniture, or Louis-Philippe traditional with occasional modern accents. The electronics are up to date, with flat-screen televisions, DVD players and iPod-ready alarm clocks in every room.
One charming quirk: while the rooms are spacious enough, the bathrooms are tiny, and nickel-plated to boot, with endless reflections. Then again you’re not here for the bathrooms, and anyway the L’Occitane bath products do help. There’s a little more space to spread out on the terrace and in the restaurant, and the Salon Gallimard, the library with its cozy little fireplace, is named for the publishing house next door — it’s no stretch to imagine some literary deals have been done in these leather armchairs over the years.
