The Aiglon Hotel is in a unique location at the heart of the Montparnasse district. It stands at the corner of Boulevards Raspail and Edgar Quinet, which were once part of the patrol path along the Fermiers Généraux wall.
A quarter that has been loved by artists, since Picasso, Fujita and Man Ray all lived in Rue Campagne Première, just opposite the Aiglon Hotel. They would meet their fellow artists in the restaurants of Boulevard Montparnasse, such as La Closerie des Lilas, La Coupole or le Dôme..
The hotel is bathed in the atmosphere of early 20th century Paris and all the famous artists and writers who brought the quarter to life. Cybèle Paluel-Marmont, the interior decorator, wanted to prolong this creative spirit and preserve the building’s Art Deco style during renovation work. This can be seen in the choice of door handles, the small balcony railings and the patterns in the mosaics designed by Mathilde Jonquière.
The Aiglon Hotel is very much part of the present, while transmitting the imprint of the past, in memory of such artists and distinguished guests as Luis Buñuel, the Spanish film-director, who liked to use Suite 59 for film shoots, Alberto Giacometti, the Swiss sculptor and painter or Ronald Searle, the English press cartoonist and illustrator.
