New Gay Hotel Opens in Paris

Published Date Author: , December 30th, 2011

Jules et Jim Hotel, Paris, FranceAfter five years of research and construction kept under wraps, the new 23-room “straight-friendly” Jules et Jim hotel opened December 19, 2011 in the heart of Paris, a five minute walk from the Georges Pompidou Center.

Situated in the Marais, the hotel was conceived by Antoine Brault and Geoffroy Sciard, who have marketed their establishment as being particularly open to gay guests while welcoming all orientations. The theme pays homage to Francois Truffaut’s celebrated film, and aims to be, for guests, a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The rooms are spread out over three buildings, surrounding two cobblestone courtyards to give the feeling of a true break from city life. An eight-story building, combined with two houses, offers 23 custom-built rooms. Some rooms overlook the roofs of Paris, while others afford vantage points onto the interior courtyards of the hotel. Particular attention has been given to sound proofing, light filtering, privacy, and the highest quality of bedding.
