With the announcement that the Louvre's beautiful yet long-neglected post office building in central Paris is set to reopen as a spectacular five-star hotel this October, upcycling never looked so good.

Hôtel Madame Rêve, the brainchild of celebrated restaurateur, founder, and art director Laurent Taïeb, will be situated in the iconic 19th century building in the French capital’s creative district, and will feature 82 design-led rooms including 19 suites with views over the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur and Notre-Dame.

On site will also be two superb destination restaurants offering Mediterranean-style dining and Japanese-influenced cuisine, as well as an expansive 1000 sqm2 rooftop offering panoramic views of Paris.

Meanwhile downstairs in the lobby, guests will be enchanted by a stunning interior that brings together classic Parisian woodwork, oak flooring, velvet curtains and golden-brown hues.

Elsewhere in the hotel, furniture has either been custom-made or sensitively restored and many items have been sourced by French artisans, namely Henryot & Cie 1867, whose distinctive chairs can be spotted at Le Jules Verne restaurant inside the Eiffel Tower or dotted around the Louis Vuitton Foundation art museum in Paris.

“I had a dream to create an exceptional place, where joie de vivre mixes with emotion," says Laurent Taïeb of the new property. "I pictured the hotel of tomorrow in the heart of historic Paris in an iconic building, staffed by a talented team.”
