Hotel de Sers in Paris, France

March 21, 2012 by

A small walk away from the brilliant lights of the Champs Elysees, the Hotel de Sers is an isolated observer to the magnificence of Paris.

Honoring its heritage, this 19th century mansion has been craftily renovated to present its guests small chateau appeal with star quality, featuring a remarkable portrait gallery, an attractive wood-paneled lounge, a creative restaurant, and a lovely courtyard garden. Its rooms and suites are warm and bright, with many suites providing their guests with incredible views of Paris.

Marquis de Sers employed the services of architect Jules Pellechet, who designed the original four-storey building with a classic facade and abundant windows. Inside, the design was very purposeful: an entrance for horse-drawn carriages directly in front of an massive staircase, an interior courtyard which led to the stables, and a ground floor used for service quarters; the first floor was divided into an anteroom, sitting room, and dining room, while the other two floors housed the masters’ chambers with the servants’ quarters on the top floor.

At the onset of the 20th century, the Hôtel de Sers housed a medical facility. In agreement with the architectural style of the 1930’s, the building was lifted up onto four additional floors and attached to a six-storey building overlooking the courtyard. Inside it was re-divided, with each bedroom being equipped with a private lavatory as a result. In 1935, the changed Hôtel de Sers became a travelers’ hotel. Ever since then it has welcomed those that travel the world. Recently remodeled and restored, it is back in its original role: a discretely sumptuous home, cozy, and welcoming, located in this most everlastingly wonderful capital city.

The rooms and suites of Hotel de Sers include: Supreme and Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites, Panoramic Suites, and Apartment Suite. The 7th floor of the Hôtel de Sers is home to an outstanding 80 square meter apartment overlooking the shady courtyard. Open double doors link its brightly-lit rooms in enfilade, enlarging the observation of depth. The gaze wonders through the sweeping vista created by the succeeding American-style kitchen, dining room, parlor, and bedroom, culminating in a spectacular bathroom subjugated by an amazing round bath. Complete with two terraces, this heavenly home-away-from-home floats above the Paris rooftops.

Their restaurant, far from the active avenue, is at one end of the colossal portrait gallery, looking out onto the tree-lined courtyard. This is an animated place favoring distinguishing minimalist sophistication: tables bathe in light that seems to come down from the sky and the layout offers guests distinctive settings for their meals: a roomy room with marble decor for a business lunch, a winter garden for a special lunch or dinner, and when the weather is nice, enjoy a relaxing meal on their outdoor terrace.
