The Thoumieux empire has excellent taste. In the 7th arrondissement's joyful shopping haven, rue Saint-Dominique, the Thoumieux family have made a big impact. At number 58, there is the pâtisserie (and it’s exquisite sesame Paris-Brest), then at 79, the ground floor brasserie, Sylvestre Wahid’s gourmet restaurant on the first floor and the fifteen-room hotel. It’s the best three-in-one combination possible.
Taken over in 2009 by Thierry Costes and the Beaumarly group, Hotel Thoumieux comprises 15 contemporary, chic rooms by the architect and designer India Mahdavi and the M/M Studio Paris. Graphic wallpaper, flowery curtains and geometric carpet make everything throb with life. Expect a meticulously groomed style from the ground up.
Bathrooms are stocked with Aesop products, magnificent marble and enough space for you and the magnificent Devon&Devon designed plumbing. The size of the rooms and their layout is one of the standout points, ranging from 14m2 for the classic rooms to 33m2 for the prestige category. We’re particularly in love with the restaurant and its monogrammed carpet, which hosts guests for breakfast – a refined spread of pastries and finely sliced fruit. Because after all, you’ll need some sustenance before hitting the shops on rue saint-Dominique.
