After five years of work, the Poste du Louvre in Paris is entering the final phase of its metamorphosis into a luxury hotel, with the arrival and progressive installation of the various tenants.
It is a monumental project that has taken place in the heart of the capital. Orchestrated by Poste Immo, the real estate subsidiary of La Poste Group, the transformation of the Poste du Louvre into a place of life and services accessible to all is about to be finalized.
Shops, restaurants, offices, services for the public and above all a luxury hotel will form the new identity of this unique and emblematic place in the capital. But let’s focus on the luxury hotel part.

Called Madame Rêve, this new luxury hotel will occupy most of the Poste du Louvre, and will have a capacity of 3,000 clients per day, including of course the various services that will be offered in the building.
The idea of this hotel is an initiative that came about thanks to the Ministry of Culture, despite the opposition of the Historic Paris Association. Planned to occupy the top level and the roof, this luxury hotel will be fitted out so that its future guests can enjoy a terrace and a garden.
This hotel also intends to surprise by mixing tourists and local residents alike. In addition to its massive and impressive dimensions, the place will have its share of surprises, starting with the entrance itself, which is quite tiny. “It’s a real choice,” explains Laurent Taïeb, founder and artistic director of the Hôtel de la Poste du Louvre. “I wanted people to arrive by a back door, in an extremely discreet way, in front of the immensity of the building. Concierges welcome you. And from the moment you walk in, the show begins.”
The hotel will have a total of ninety-three rooms, including eleven junior suites that will occupy the third floor, on the site of the aediculae, small shacks of technical premises that were razed during the works. Forty-nine of these rooms will open onto an interior designed as an Italian-style courtyard, with loggias and staggered balconies, covered with planted iron mesh. Thirty-three others will be turned towards the outside with a view of the zinc roofs and monuments of the capital.
Two rooms in particular seem to stand out. The first is room number 380. Designed as an artist’s studio with a ceiling height varying from 3 to 4.20 metres, it will be a spacious room of 35 m², with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The second is 347, perhaps the most spectacular of all, with a large entrance, a small living room and a vast room with large windows and a bed in line with Notre-Dame and the Pantheon.
A new life for this emblematic Parisian monument built in 1886 by the architect Julien Guadet for the needs of the Post Office. The modernisation programme undertaken by La Poste Group and its real estate subsidiary Poste Immo aims to modernise the building to bring it into line with the times and make it a real “piece of the city” connected to its environment. The contemporary architecture of the new building therefore combines the industrial and historical heritage of the site with the multiplicity of uses. Respect for its historical identity was at the heart of the reflections and challenges, while strong elements of modernity and openness to the city were brought in. A radical change for this building of La Poste, which is so dear to Parisians.
Opening of this new place of escape: October 21, 2021.
