THE BEATING HEART OF PARIS
The Grands Boulevards district is that of the ancient suburbs. Faubourg Montmartre, Poissonière and Saint Denis, these thoroughfares have known since the french revolution the fever of celebration and live performance. At nightfall this commercial heart of Paris beats to the rythm of the first popular balls and café concerts. This old peripheral district has seen many artists give it its color: from Frédéric Chopin who gave its first parisian concert there, Art Blakey inaugurated 150 years later the New Morning Club to Laurent Garnier who made the Rex Club one of the temples of electronic culture...
We dance and chant there too, in one of the 40 theaters that made it world famous, long before the Department Stores were inaugurated. And then we write, of course: the major daily newspapers have here their headquarters historically, from Le Figaro to L’Humanité, when the biggest French writers take up residence there, from Alexandre Dumas or Jules Verne to Boris Vian or Paul Verlaine. Today, eras are still mixed: you will pass from the great Haussmann arteries to the historic outskirts, from private mansions to old lopsided buildings. Since 1852, the Drouot auction house has resounded with the same hammer blows when, a few streets away, the glasses and cutlery of the flagship restaurants of the new Parisian cuisine resound. In a word, the faubourgs are the permanent meeting of heritage and modernity!
The Beauquartier Grands Boulevards residence is located in the quiet Rue d'Enghien, a short distance from the tumultuous Grands Boulevards of Paris. Built in the 19th century, the building has always been a hotel and was mentionned by Balzac in one of his books. The residence has had a very important renovation before its reopening in ordre to offer our clients the very best parisian experience. The access to the residence is secured, and features a secured luggage room to store your suitcases before check in or after check out, a laundry room with free access to washers and dryers. Our apartments are fully furnished and are perfect as a pied a terre for a business or family traveller.
