4-star hotelin the heart of historic Paris

Welcome to Paris

The 18th century building housing the Relais du Louvre has not always been a Hotel.

During the French Revolution, it was the head office of the Journal des Débats, the most widely circulated newspaper in 1812. Its publication was discontinued in 1944.

The ground floor was until 1850 home to the Café Momus frequented by Chateaubriand, Sainte-Beuve, Nadar, Gustave Courbet, Charles Baudelaire and others.

Rooms and Family Suites

Although the Relais du Louvre is only 200 meters away from the Louvre, it is located in a quiet street with no facing buildings. The hotel’s 21 rooms therefore offer privacy and comfort with a location in the heart of historic comfort.
