Victoria Palace Hotel

Since 1913 Victoria Palace Hotel has been a landmark of the 6th arrondissement of Paris. Located on a quiet street off the bustling Rue de Rennes, the hotel truly is an expression of the Rive gauche. It combines a very Left Bank sense of understated and un-self-conscious luxury with the obvious advantages of a centrally located, residential neighbourhood.

Did You Know? Hotel Balzac

May 14, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

Hotel Balzac


In 1853, Hotel Balzac was built for the director of the Paris Opera. It was home to its namesake, the 19th century French writer Honore de Balzac. The hotel is reminiscent of town houses of that period.

In 1846 Balzac acquired the property to give to Countess Ewelina Hanska, who he married in May 1850. He spent his last days in the house and died a few months later without ever having paid the purchase price.

His writing influenced many famous authors, including the novelists Marcel Proust, Emile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, Marie Corelli, Henry James, Jack Kerouac, and Italo Calvino as well as philosophers such as Friedrich Engels. 

Balzac's spirit lives on in the luxury hotel where collections of antique books as well as lithographs depicting the writer, and scenes from his work can be found.
