Halfway between romanticism and oriental art, the Bourg Tibourg hotel in Paris invites you to a dream-like journey throughout the 19th century recreated by Jacques Garcia. The setting is inspired by both neo-Gothic and oriental arts and thus endows the place with a unique atmosphere, arousing both mind and senses. The rooms are filled with an exquisite magnetism... On the bed edged with astrakhan, you can almost picture a purple velvet dress. The bathroom, with its black granite floor awakens romantic visions of pearl necklaces and near a mosaic tiled niche, memories of precious bottles of perfume come to mind...
The Bourg Tibourg hotel is thus a delightful combination of tradition and modernity and its blend of luxury exuberance make it a lovely and unique place, but is affordable even if you are on a budget. A secret address in the heart of the Marais, The Bourg Tibourg hotel enables its guests to have lovely walks among streets bordered with private mansions, narrow lanes reminding of medieval times and through hidden passages. The area has retained its village-like atmosphere and the place abounds in original shops, trendy restaurants and bookshops. A lot of museums can also be visited in the area, such as the Picasso museum, the Carnavalet museum and the "Centre Pompidou". Art galleries and antique shops are also worth a glance. Some of the most famous historical monuments of the city are also to be seen in the area, such as Notre Dame de Paris and the Place des Vosges. The Chatelet-les-Halles train station serves the business centres of La Defense and Marne La Vallee and Roissy and Orly airports.
The hotel is conveniently located in the artistic Marais district, near the Place des Vosges and Notre Dame. Art lovers will appreciate its proximity to the Picasso Museum and the iconic Pompidou Center.
The charming boutique Hotel du Bourg Tibourg was built in an Edwardian townhouse. The wrought-iron front door opens to reveal a lobby which is an eclectic mix of oriental and French furniture with a splash of neo-Gothic décor in the heavy curtains, dark chests and dim lighting.
The narrow corridors are lined with red velvet and lead down to the small, dark guest rooms designed by renowned interior decorator, Jacques Garcia. If you like cozy, secret dens, you will love the charm of this hotel. However, the claustrophobic will probably want to check out and go somewhere more conventional! The rooms continue the Gothic theme with heavy fabric-coloured walls, velvet tables, fringed lampshades and dark panelled walls. Lighting is courtesy of free-standing iron lamps and the bathrooms are small and luxurious in black marble with white sinks. Each room enjoys a flat-screen TV, DVD player and well-stocked minibar. Room service is available until late, offering light meals and snacks.
Breakfast is served in the atmospheric cellar, complete with original stone walls and a huge tapestry clashing with up-to-the-minute leopard-print covered chairs. Definitely a boutique Paris hotel with a difference, you will either love it or hate it.
