The Hotel Napoleon, at 40 Avenue de Friedland, is located a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris’s cinematographic and literary heart. Its seven colourfully windowed storeys are proud models of intimist Directoire style with a unique history. The hotel was built in the 1920s and was bought by a rich Russian businessman as a wedding present for the young French girl with whom he had fallen head-over-heels in love. In the years that followed, prestigious guests arrived to savour the delights of the city. Errol Flynn, Josephine Baker, Ernest Hemingway, Jean Gabin, Dali, John Steinbeck and Constantin de Grèce, to name a few. Treat yourself to a stay in these sumptuous and altogether magical surroundings. Enjoy their spaciousness and authenticity, and the unrestricted views they provide over the rooftops of Paris.
