The Concept of the Hôtels Littéraires
Four-star hotels dedicated to our favourite authors
The Hôtels Littéraires were created by the collector and booklover Jacques Letertre in tribute to his favourite writers, to share his enthusiasm with all visitors and offer them an opportunity to immerse themselves in the worlds of the greatest authors. Every detail of these four-star establishments is carefully thought out to offer a different artistic and cultural approach, so everyone can find a customised approach to (re)discovering the work and personality of these writers.
The Hotel Littéraire Arthur Rimbaud is situated at the foot of the Gare de l'Est, in the historic district of the 10th Arrondissement, where Rimbaud arrived from his native Ardennes between two runaway escapades. Visitors are offered a discovery trail of the poet's complete works via the décor, which is a homage to Rimbaud's voyages and travels from one place to another; nature, Aden and Harar, and Parisian cafés. The many collectors' items, such as manuscripts, rare books, drawings and objets d'art, create an authentic look. In addition, the personalised rooms and all the floors reflect Rimbaud's life and writings.
