The hotel’s white-and-black building is part of an enchanting streetscape. A 19th-century Sainte-Cécile church neighbors it from one side and an impressive Haussmann-style building (an investment bank) on the other. The area may be quiet, but it’s dotted with restaurants and bars, the best of which the reception desk staff will happily recommend.
However, you don’t actually have to leave the de Nell—the hotel’s La Régalade is one of the best-looking restaurants we visited in the city.
With its checkered floor and wall blackboards chalked up with the day’s menu, it is a classic sight as it gets. It channels the casual atmosphere of Paris bistros—minus the tired, worn-out look, typical in the city’s food places.
Which is perhaps the only difference between La Régalade and a truly Parisian bistro experience. But then not everywhere you get food as good and fresh as at the de Nell’s joint (we loved the breakfast!).
Going further in, De Nell’s interiors carry a good balance of traditional references and modern design. The classic building is like a canvass for the pared-down spaces designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, delivered in an informal elegance of de Nell’s calm, uncluttered rooms. The result is stylish and luxurious, thanks in some part to the quality of materials.
The architect used wood, marble, minimalist furnishings, easy-on-the-toes organic Swedish wool carpets, black stone-walled showers and massive Japanese bathtubs carved from single blocks of raw marble in rooms Deluxe or above. The spaces are finished with lighting designed exclusively for the hotel by luxury brand Artemide.
