Near St. Lazare train station and in the epicentre of Marcel Proust’s Paris stomping ground, this imaginative ‘hôtel littéraire’ invites guests to discover, or deepen their appreciation of, the great French author in a supremely comfortable setting. Boasting original manuscripts and first editions of Proust masterpieces, as well as a 500-volume library offering his great works in multiple languages, every room is named after a character relevant to Proust’s life or oeuvre. A literature buff’s paradise – and a classy place to stay in a prime location.
