L’Hôtel Thoumieux

This past fashion week in Paris we stayed at a great hotel, the Hôtel Thoumieux.  Garance did a post about it, and I would feel selfish if I didn’t share it with you.


Personally, my favorite elements were the fantastic Brasserie and the super-highly-rated Gastronomique.  I could only enjoy those two incredible places knowing they had promised that next time I visit, there will be a gym in the hotel – which I personally really needed to work off my foie gras hangover!!


Next time you are in Paris, you should look this place up.

    Is this the most gorgeous corner in Paris or what?

    I saw this post when Garance blogged it and the place looks WONDERFUL!
    I myself though would relish the lack of a gym-having just spent a whole day at an Army selection centre doing hours of tearjerking (I’m quite proud of having not cried- I was close) physical training in frankly horribly unglamorous garb (red face, frizzy hair, you get the picture) I now fully appreciate what it’s like to NOT have to work to the 7th sweat!

    I booked with this hotel yesterday because of Garance’s rave about it and colorful photos. I can’t wait to enjoy it next month when I’m there!

    Foie gras… for shame. If you get a moment please google how foie gras is made.

    Otherwise, love your blog!

    I think that in a butique hotels gym is not so important. In Milano, Paris, London hotel guests are jogging. Portly guy running around Duomo or Notre Dame looks really sweet! ;)
    You can discover the incredible side of any city :)
    I’m also doing this way.

    Foie Gras means suffering of countless geese fed with forced pipes until their heart often bursts. They see no sun, no green grass is felt under their delicate feet. These creatures have as much understanding of life and need to be alive as we do. While your business is fashion and fashion is art and you promote beauty in many aspects I would be very glad one day to see that you have managed to reconsider what’s on your plate. Stay healthy, talented and eliminate cruelty from your life. Even a little ettempt to it is a small step towards the true gem of this world – love. Warmest regards :-)

    I am well into going to the gym, but for other reasons. Scott, please research how foie gras is produced, and get another french favorite!

    Also I love the resto Thoumieux, the Fontaine de Mars, and even more the P’tit Troquet just around the corner on rue de l’Exposition, small and really fabuleux.

    Scott and Garance,

    If I can’t live on the best corner in Paris, this will do ever so nicely for visits.

    Thanks for the tip and lovely tour.

    I been there for 3 weeks ago. Ate at their restaurant on the 1. floor. Great food and service. Must say the chief Jean-Francois Piege is amazing in a kitchen.

    Want to go there again.

    Been there a few days ago, the bakery that is. It was both beautiful and tasty, only the machine they have to feed bills in was slightly irritating.

    Thanks for the hint!

    This place is really overrated although they have good wine at the restaurant which is ten times too expensive for what’s in the plate, you’re paying for the decoration, the parisian bling bling atmosphere with loud music.

    Used to live just around the corner, very familiar view here.
    Good memories and will definitely consider it next time I’m staying in Paris.
    Moulin de la Vierge just across the street is fabulous for their pastries, while les baguettes aren’t too bad at all either!

    You were next to Millet on 107 rue Saint-Dominique then… Millet is one of the Parisians’ best kept secrets: a small pastry shop which is arguably the best in Paris (& Yokohama, for they branched out there!)
    I recommend the sablés au citron, croissant aux amandes (my grandmother’s and my mother’s favourite), the mille-feuilles (Napoléon in English).
