If the walls of this splendid accommodation could speak, they would tell us the story of one of the greatest couturiers of our century, Azzedine Alaïa. Passionate about design, he opened workshops on rue de Moussy and Rue de la Verrerie in the heart of the Marais in old warehouses once used to make watches and mattresses. In one these buildings, dating from the 17th century on rue de Moussy, Alaïa set up 3 luxury apartments to mimic a mini private hotel. His goal was to make the occupants feel at home away from home. By renting this 3-room 1st floor apartment (with elevator), you will have the privilege of staying in the first of these accommodations, just steps from l’Hôtel de Ville (the city hall) in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.
The 1130 sq ft (105 m2) L'Hôtel Azzedine Alaïa I was decorated by Julian Schnable with furniture from famous designers from Azzedine's private collection: a table by Jean Prouvé, chairs by Pierre Paulin as well as other symbolic pieces by Marc Newson, Charlotte Perriand, André Sornay and Arne Jacobsen. You're essentially living in your own private showroom with a particular French charm. The experience of each guests' stay can be personalized to their needs and tastes, whether they prefer to snack from the mini bar, order breakfast in bed via room service, or dine in the kitchens of Monsieur Alaïa. The apartment also has its own fully equipped, private kitchen should you prefer to do your own cooking. The apartment has two beautiful bedrooms each with its own office area and personal storage space, making it ideal for 2 or 3 guests. The apartment has a TV with wifi internet available throughout. There is also a bathroom with a bathtub and separate WC/toilet to allow for maximum privacy for all of the guests.
Treat yourself and your friends or family to a once in a lifetime experience with a stay in this private, contemporary art gallery in the heart of one of the most cultural districts of Paris: the Marais. Built on what was once a vast marsh, where it gets the name "Marais", the district experienced its golden age at the beginning of the 17th century. In 1612 king Henri IV had decided to create a square dedicated to leisure, and idleness; thus Place de Vosges was constructed. From your accommodation you can easily walk to la Place du Châtelet at la Place de la Bastille where you can enjoy some of the most beautiful monuments Paris has to offer: le Musée Picasso, Arts et Métiers, le Cirque d’Hiver, la Place de la République, les Archives Nationales, la Rue des Rosiers, l'Hôtel de Ville, les Quais de Seine, Notre Dame des Blancs Manteaux Roman Catholic church as well as le Musée Carnavalet. Just steps from public transportation (metro Hôtel de Ville, line 1, Rambuteau line 11 and bus routes 67, 96) as well as taxi stands, within minutes you can easily visit other parts of the city.
