Once a private bathhouse for the likes of Marcel Proust, a hotspot for the Bohemians of the Belle Époque, and a famed nightclub where Jagger and Bowie romped, Les Bains is gloriously back—this time, as a boutique hotel in Paris’ Le Marais neighborhood. Les Bains is both an homage to the heritage of its storied past and a bold new take on Parisian hospitality. Thanks to the outstanding joint work of the architects and designers Vincent Bastie, Tristan Auer, and Denis Montel, the property shines as a vibrant, connected, international clubhouse and hotel, which includes a restaurant, a bar, a private lounge, a club, guest rooms, and suites. Set at 7 Rue du Bourg L’Abbé, a jewel of the historic third arrondissement, the property is ideally ensconced in Paris’ old aristocratic district, a trove of atmospheric streets and architectural splendors.
ROOMS & SUITES
Ranging from 23 to 80 square meters, the rooms and suites all feature either a queen- or king-size bed, as well as a mahogany and marble bathroom with Zenith showers and underfloor heating. As well as a selection of books in various languages to peruse, many of the guestrooms offer a balcony or terrace.
You can feel them in the foyer: the ghosts of parties past. Warhol and Basquiat conspiring near the double-faced clock; Yves Saint Laurent under the David Rocheline frescoes; footsteps echo across 19th-century floral tiles where Proust once walked…

Behind a Haussmannian façade lays an experimental palace of red-lacquer pillars, teardrop-shaped ceilings, and inviting social spaces.
Distressed leather chairs and sofas in the honesty bar, a graffiti-clad enclosed patio, and statement carpets characterize the hotel’s stunning interiors.
