The concept of the Literary Hotels
Four-star hotels devoted to our favourite writers
The Société des Hôtels Littéraires offers six original establishments devoted to book lovers and culture, with the aim of inviting its visitors on a tour of French literature in elegant, comfortable surroundings.
Le Swann is the first hotel in Paris to be entirely devoted to Marcel Proust and his iconic work, In Search of Lost Time. This four-star hotel, situated in the historically Proustian district of the Plaine Monceau, enables visitors to immerse themselves in the world of France's most famous writer.
The aim of this Hôtel Littéraire is to enable guests to discover or rediscover the life and work of Proust in Paris in a warm and welcoming setting. The unique decoration, a collections area, multilingual libraries featuring rare editions and personalised rooms create an original atmosphere with refined Parisian charm.
This unique signature style can also be found in the other Hôtels Littéraires in Paris, Rouen, Clermont-Ferrand and Biarritz, each devoted to the writers Gustave Flaubert, Marcel Aymé, Arthur Rimbaud, Alexandre Vialatte and Jules Verne.
