This luxurious hotel in Montmartre hides a lascivious piece of history: as a former brothel, this house lives up to the disreputable past of its arrondissement. Today, however, the Maison Souquet has been transformed by the trained eye of architect Jacques Garcia into an opulent hotel that recalls its beginnings only in its sensuality.

The classic par excellence: the iconic house with the facade covered in red geraniums is the epitome of Parisian luxury. In the middle of the noble Avenue Montaigne, the Plaza Athénée is the ideal starting point for fashionistas (some of the best boutiques in the world surround the hotel) and flaneurs (the Champs-Elysées is just a few minutes walk away).
