At the beginning of the 20th century, the Hotel De Sers became a healthcare establishment. In thirties architectural style, the building was raised to four floors, and a six-storey building was added in the courtyard, with the internal spaces redesigned to equip each room with a toilet.
After this refit, in 1935 Hotel De Sers became a traveller’s hotel. Ever since, it has been welcoming travellers from around the world. Refurbished and restored, it has now resumed it original vocation: that of a discreetly luxurious ‘home’, comfortable and warm, in a capital city of timeless beauty.
The Hôtel de Sers has in 2015 adopted a new look thanks to the architect Thomas Vidalenc, who also performed the last major renovation of the building in 2002.
The Marquis de Sers entrusted his project to the architect Jules Pellechet, who designed a four-storey building with a classic facade, dotted with numerous windows.Inside, the spaces were laid out very functionally:
A further renovation put emphasis not only on the historical character of the building, but also on variety. And so it was that spaciousness and light became the hallmarks of the 45 bedrooms and 7 suites, expressing discreet luxury through completely new and contemporary design and decoration.
Guests enter the Hôtel de Sers through the vast, 22-metre long gallery which links the different areas of the hotel: a sober and discreet reception area, the monumental staircase which serves the former ‘prestige floor’ of the Marquis’s residence and also the grand salon, which has been restored to its full volume.
Since then, the Hôtel de Sers has again been bringing alive the original atmosphere of this former private town house, and welcomes its guests into thewarmand luxurious ambiance that was so dear to the Marquis de Sers.
The library takes on new dimensions – it has been enlarged, and enhanced by new lighting, and is better linked to the lounge area. The cosy lounge is dominated by tones of blue and brown, and offers an eclectic mixture of contemporary design, as in a private apartment.
The configuration of the bar has been transformed: its warm tones of brown, and its wide sofas in metallic-effect fabric by Lelièvre, provide an area better suited to quiet relaxation and confidentiality.
The terrace of the restaurant has been covered with a moveable glazed roof, which now makes it ideal for lunch and dinner under the Parisian sky in both summer and winter. Two alcoves have been created, enlarging the available space and offering greater privacy, a little away from the main restaurant area.
