Belle Epoque style at Maison Souquet


Maison Souquet is a new five-star boutique hotel in Paris. Its sumptuous décor, inspired by the pleasure houses of the Belle Epoque, is signed by French designer Jacques Garcia, who has conjured up a modern expression of the 19th century. The hotel lies just a stone’s throw from Pigalle and its famous Moulin Rouge. A door in an understed façade is signaled by two red lanterns and matching canopy and leads to an Arabian Nights lobby. The original oriental décor, created in the early 20th century, has been maintained, while Garcia has created a blend of Arabian style and Napoleon III velveteen in an eclectic collection of furniture, artwork, and paintings.

The bar is designed to imitate a reading room, at once grandiose and intimate, with a monumental fireplace, piano, books and games. The hotel has 14 rooms and six suites: draped in hundreds of meters of precious fabrics, each forms a cocoon with a unique atmosphere and its individual style, in turn Empire, Napoleon III, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, or Art Deco.

The Maison Souquet’s spa comprises a 10m swimming pool, a hammam and a treatment room. It is  reserved exclusively for guests who request the key, and is decorated with a celestial ceiling.

Maison Souquet is part of the Maisons Particulières hotels group.
