Monte Cristo in a nutshell

Our review

The hotel Monte Cristo is a 4* hotel with orientalist charm located in the 5th district of Paris, 10 minutes walk from the Jardin des Plantes. Watch this video on Youtube to discover the hotel or this one to discover the spa and the pool.

By the way, I advise you to book your stay at Monte Cristo in advance. You can also find accommodation on Booking.com (there are often special offers) or even discover the best accommodations recommended for their romantic atmosphere.

We visited the hotel and fell in love with it from start to finish. This is typically the kind of place we like to introduce you to on Let's Go My Love.

The hotel beautifully recreates the world of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel: The Count of Monte Cristo, published in 1846. You are immersed in a 19th century atmosphere with purple colors, stuffed animals, colorful fabrics, colorful patterns, exotic plants, mottled objects and noble materials.

Here is a short summary of the novel: the story begins with the arrival of Edmond Dantes, a young 19 year old sailor, in Marseille to get engaged to the beautiful Mercédès. Betrayed by jealous "friends", he is denounced as a Bonapartist conspirator and thrown into prison. Edmond spends 14 long years there, at first alone and desperate, and then secretly instructed by a fellow prisoner, Abbot Faria, who reveals to him the location of an immense treasure hidden on an island.

Edmond Dantes manages to leave the prison, finds the treasure, returns to Marseilles and poses as various sumptuous characters, including the Count of Monte Cristo, in order to be able to act in the shadows. He undertakes to guarantee happiness to the few who have remained faithful to him and... decides to take methodical revenge on those who had him imprisoned.

The hotel, offers 50 rooms, including 5 unique suites that refer to the novel: 1802, Mercedes, Haydee, Edmond and Alexander. Each room is like the secret room of a ship, filled with objects and elements reminiscent of expeditions to distant destinations.

Depending on the room you choose, you will have the following amenities: king or queen size bedding, private bathroom with precious materials such as earthenware and terrazzo, mottled mirrors, wall paint, welcome products in the bathroom, air conditioning, Nespresso machine and safe.

The staff, under the direction of Emilie, is of a rare kindness and great availability. The team speaks French, English, German, Spanish and Italian. Special mention to Cassandre, very dedicated.

In the morning, enjoy a delicious buffet with a selection of fresh, quality, home-made products at Bar 1802. In a lush and exotic setting, discover flavors from another continent and high quality products.

In the evening, go to the restaurant Le Grand Dictionnaire, in a charming and warm setting. The dishes are elegant, fine, balanced and perfectly mastered. You will enjoy it from the beginning to the end.

At the end of the evening, the Bar 1802 becomes a rum bar and it is the largest bar of its kind in France with more than 1000 references! If you wish, you can participate in a tasting and take a tour of the world of rum with the hotel's sommelier.

During the day or until late at night, visit the hotel's spa for a moment of pure pleasure. Among the facilities and services at your disposal: a 15-meter long swimming pool surrounded by exotic plants, orientalist decoration, deliciously warm water, background music, sauna and optional massages.

Monte Cristo is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, near the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Plantes. Notre-Dame is just a 25-minute walk away, and the Louvre Museum 40 minutes. If the weather's fine, take a stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg, a lovely green spot. Throughout the year, the garden's gates are used for photo exhibitions.
