The Htel du Panthon reveals its astonishing new look

The HPRG label has been engaged in the complete renovation of one of the most exceptional establishments of the Left Bank, transforming it into a 4-star hotel with the aid of interior designer Valrie Manol.

Colourful, cosy and packed with character, the hotel is now one of Paris most tasteful, chic hotels.
Situated in the heart of the historic 5th arrondissement, just steps away from the Jardin du Luxembourg, and opposite the iconic Panthon, the hotel has decided to celebrate the great women of France, the ones who dared, the ones who loved, those with passion, those that decided their destiny free, independent women. Valrie Manols project was not to imagine a literal retelling of their life stories, but to use them as the inspiration for sumptuous interiors that would evoke the past.

The touch of a woman
The flamboyant cocottes, the high-class escorts of
the 19th century, including Valtesse de la Bigne; The love affair of Edith Piaf and Marcel Cerdan in the 1950s, with its very particular design; The house of George Sand, of a more classic style, and the passage from the 18th to 19th century; Juliette Grco as the starting point for a choice of graphic fabrics that evoke the jazz of Saint-Germain in the 1940s; The Signares, French-African women from French Senegal in the 18th and 19th centuries, referenced in a joyous melting pot of contemporary and traditional African influences; Marguerite Duras emblematic novel lAmant, giving rise to silky, colourful, refined interiors.

As well as providing perfect comfort, class and discretion, this new 4-star hotel is also bathed in light, with exceptional, unique views onto the Panthon and over the rooftops of Paris to Sacr Cur. The dcor has been carefully chosen to be restful and comforting, thanks to the very personal tastes of interior designer Valrie Manol and owner Corinne Moncelli, with different styles on each level. This is very much a blissful haven in the heart of the city.

The Photography at the Hotel du Pantheon

As is often the case in their hotels, the HPRG label has once again supported the photographic arts by commissioning talented photographers to create 50 works that will be presented in the rooms and corridors of the hotel.

Where is Yvonne?
In the basement, an amusing photo hunt is presented - using the magnifying glass provided, visitors can search the wedding photos on the walls and try and find the individual present in every single one. This fun game is entitled Where is Yvonne?.

Elene Usdin & Patrick Tournebuf

The staircase shows the work of Elene Usdin, who disguises her model as a number of the Panthons great women in portraits giving the hotel floor number. On the first floor, we wanted to sidestep the clichs so often used in literature and film to depict the cocottes as actresses or singers of easy virtue, so we asked Patrick Tourneboeuf to provide photos of theatres and dressing rooms featuring the lush reds that are so typical of these places.

Sylvie Meunier & Lucie Belarbie et Amlie Chassary

Sylvie Meuniers Instantans Ordinaires (Ordinary Instants) are shown on the second floor. As Edith Piaf and her then boyfriend Marcel Cerdan were often photographed looking gloriously happy and in love, Sylvie decided to select vintage photos showing unknown people in obvious states of bliss. The series is called Les jours heureux (days of happiness). To illustrate the relationship between George Sand and Alfred de Musset, we asked for work from photographer / multimedia artists Lucie Belarbie and Amlie Chassary. They give their very particular vision of a couple whose tumultuous passion led to its quick demise. These photos will probably be very disconcerting for some guests
