7 Eiffel In the heart of a resolutely chic, Parisian neighbourhood, the 7 EIFFEL offers its guests sought-after calm. Special attention has been given to each detail that contributes to the hotel’s bespoke elegance. Perfectly-defined style, welcoming finesse: the very essence of what a hotel should be.

Discrete luxury

A privately-owned hotel

Determined to please the most demanding of visitors, the new owners of the establishment have sculpted the 7 EIFFEL into a haven of well-being for refined urban jaunts. As knowledgeable travellers themselves, tired by the stiff welcome offered in so many so-called luxury hotels, they wanted to give the 7 EIFFEL a subtle, concentrated modernity. A choice neighbourhood, sober but stylish interior design, thoughtful touches... this new Left Bank address has distilled elegance in its thirty-two rooms after twelve months of complete remodelling. The owners’ empathy for their guests defines the ambiance of the 7 EIFFEL. A discrete, unostentatious, personalised touch given to the service is one of the marks of the hotel’s hand-crafted chic. A new address for connoisseurs, where everyone can feel at ease.

A cosy, calm atmosphere

The character of the hotel is the result of the work of eight people, each helping to define a style that is delicately pure yet clearly defined. Here, the contrasts are all tailor-made for the space, both easy on the eye and voluntarily contemporary. The owners and their two architects, Anne Peyroux and Emmanuelle Thysi, have instilled the 7 EIFFEL with a feeling of discreet luxury, without adding unnecessary distraction or showiness. This feeling is aided by quality furnishings, a selection of stylish furniture, light colours, ample space and ease of movement. With moiré or transparent effects, the carefully chosen lighting has a warm, reassuring feel. Each airy space has been sculpted with precision, redesigned to avoid stuffiness. Forget the old-style, impersonal meeting rooms and entrance halls: the 7 EIFFEL offer you a tranquil meeting place. Whether you need a privileged spot for a discrete business meeting or a relaxed moment for a friendly chat, the 7 EIFFEL is it.

Distinguished spaces

The lobby, opening onto the salon area, which itself is extended by a light-filled veranda: three spaces that invite you to rest in the calm of the ground floor. As soon as you arrive, the courteous, almost artful atmosphere of the 7 EIFFEL is evident. The frosted glass front desk, the delicately-hung luminous haloes, the fabric mosaic on the wall... combining with powdery, light colours. Classic, padded seating: a large, worn leather Chesterfield and Barcelona seating designed by Mies Van Der Rohe perfectly complement lighting by Le Deun. Banks of mirrors reflect the ‘haute couture’ wall creation in hot pink velvet.

Taking a break

Colour is used at the 7 EIFFEL in bright, playful touches, hints of femininity if you will. In the Salon du 7 EIFFEL, between shimmering cream walls, the formal club chairs are invigorated by sweet-pink carpets, maybe an invitation to savour afternoon tea or a temptation to sample some vintage wine early evening. Whether it’s for a relaxed chat or a snack by the fireside, these pleasures can also be shared with those not staying at the 7 EIFFEL.

Fresh green

As for the bar and the veranda, they bring a breath of fresh greenery that emboldens itself again a white backdrop. This clarity dominates the space, between faceted wall tiles and the pristine curves of the large Corian bar. To start the day, this space bathed in plentiful natural light gives breakfast an extra energy. At the bar, barstools allow you to grab a quick coffee whilst checking your e-mail or reading the morning’s headlines. And for those who prefer to take their time, under a graphic canopy of greenery the morning becomes something to dwell on and relax through. And once evening comes, you’ll see the wire sculpted Catellani lighting throwing surprising shadowy shapes on their surroundings.

A subtle atmosphere

Before discovering the rooms, as a nod to memories of typical Parisian details, trompe l’oeil paving stones are present in the five silent floors of the hotel. Here, the interior decoration doesn’t draw attention to itself: the 7 EIFFEL was designed so that its guests would immediately feel at ease, like putting on a beautiful, specially-made shirt, a carefully-crafted classic whose every detail makes it a joy to come back to. Each of the 32 rooms has its own particular design and colourful atmosphere. Waves, dunes, fabrics sheens, antlers or clouds form images over the beds. These graphic motifs are married with a palette of subtle tones: anise in room 105, moonstone grey in 305, snow in 101 or moleskin purple in 303.

Comfort and refined touches

The carpets are thick, the lighting soft, sound muffled. Ideal for deep relaxation after a marathon of meetings or shopping fatigue. Each room seems to expand its space thanks to the use of contrasting sets of materials. Walls with matte feel fabric - or smooth, or satiny - are combined with swathes of ceramic with pixel-style sculpted details. Net curtains form a dreamy separation between spaces that seem expanded by sets of mirrors. There’s also a velvet curtain that draws back to reveal wardrobe space and a minibar.

Attention to detail and smart finishing touches

Specially-chosen Percale and the softest of quilts for premium sleep, light and soft honeycombed towels, a quality wardrobe space (right down to the hangers), select toiletries, a proper, sturdy hair dryer, a space for tidying your luggage away out of your room during your stay, a laptop and mp3 dock available to use, properly studied lighting whether you are just reading or getting ready to go out, and of course your own coffee-and tea-making facilities... with a host of helpful little touches, the rooms at the 7Â EIFFEL have been designed to make your private space a pleasure to enjoy.

Contemporary classics

The light, understated design of the furniture instills a spirit of harmony throughout: tables, transparent side tables, stools and consoles with covers in the same fabric as the walls... The Tulip series by Eero Saarinen brings its classic curves to an interior design scheme left deliberately uncluttered. In the same vein, the bathrooms are effortlessly stylish and simple: matte and shiny marbled contrasts, large mirrors and panes of glass conceived to give maximum brightness. Together with the daylight, the different types of lighting have been adjusted to accompany the serene atmosphere in all rooms. Fans of design will recognise the Tolomeo Mega by Michele de Lucchi, the Dalu by Vico Magistretti and the Brera W by Achille Castiglioni that punctuate each intimate, refined environment with their Italian silhouette.

7 Eiffel Each room incites you to experience a very personal moment, to feel at home even whilst just passing through. On the top floor a surprising, rare luxury awaits: a terrace allowing you to escape to the Paris sky, a secret courtyard garden whose view over the zinc rooftops has a real Parisian feel. It’s as if white noise of the surrounding area has slowed to a halt here, inviting you to stay and lose track of time.

Hotel The 7 EIFFEL, in the heart of the “Gros Caillou” district, is in total harmony with the very particular personality of this part of Paris. The 7th district is typified by an “art de vivre” where leafy walks are possible beyond the usual image of embassies and government ministries. The restraint of the local inhabitants - both chic and sincere - contributes to the lively atmosphere of this smart area, giving it the feel of being really lived in. Two minutes away you’ll find the rue Cler, one of the few Parisian pedestrian streets, with its many authentic food shops. Near the famous Fontaine de Mars restaurant, many other award-winning eateries dress their terraces for the warm weather. The unmissable classic, brasserie Thoumieux isn’t far, just next to an antique bookshop and almost opposite a cabinet-making workshop. Despite being situated right by the iconic Eiffel Tower, and just a bridge away from the tumultuous Champs Elysées, the 7 EIFFEL’s rue Amélie has the spirit of a village in the heart of a capital city. The hotel has taken on this unpretentious attitude whilst still offering proper hotel service with style. With class, refreshingly lacking in arrogance and priding itself on friendly discretion, it’s a hotel that just lets you be yourself. A beautiful hotel, pure and simple.
