He has a knack for always being in the right place at the right time. When his friends ask him how he does it, Monsieur Helder remains tight-lipped. His secret is always being at a crossroads, where genres meet.
Hôtel monsieur Helder 4, rue du helder 75009 PARIS
A vintage boutique-hotel within sight of the Opera
And just as close to the "Grands Magasins" as the Vendôme column, built by Napoleon to celebrate his glory. Monsieur Helder is in the vibrant heart of Paris’ Right Bank area. A building with 23 bedrooms featuring a classic look inspired by the 50’s, the meeting point of French and American culture.
A building bathed in light resembling the Parisian artists’ studios
A place where Paris of yesteryear meets that of today, as seen in the bathrooms decorated with the tiling used in the Metro, and geometrical patterns capturing the essence of Parisian cafés. Monsieur Helder’s vibrates with the capital’s beating heart.
Each feature adds to the overall effect, with the decorative aspects interlacing perfectly.
WILD & THE MOON
City life can be unbearable without a touch of nature. Featuring a New York style, Monsieur Helder has decided to share his lobby with Wild & The Moon, a vegetarian restaurant fond of authentic flavours, proposing fresh cold fruit juice, unusual smoothies, an organic and gluten-free menu, inspired salads and Kodama teas.
All roads lead to... breakfast. An energy-packed and gluten-free menu awaits at Wild & The Moon. Enjoy a French continental breakfast in your bedroom: croissants, bread and butter and jam.
In the heart of the Opéra district
The shared dream of both Napoleons. In Place Vendôme, the famous column is made from bronze cannons captured from the Austrians after Napoleon’s victory at Wagram. A little further on, the church of La Madeleine honours soldiers from the Grande Armée who fell in battle. While the “N” on the Opéra Garnier’s facade is the initial of Napoleon III, the grand nephew of the first… Fortunately, Rue de la Paix (Peace Street) stands opposite.
The balconies are decorated with typically Parisian ironwork.
The collection of Hotels Monsieur
“We live through our paradoxes and die from our prejudices", explained Monsieur, to justify his diverse tastes. He has only one face but many facets. Rather like the Monsieur Hotels: a single character but several identities, each expressed in a unique establishment. Monsieur Saintonge is based in the Marais district. But Monsieur Helder opted for the Opéra area. For his part, Monsieur Cadet chose the Grands Boulevards. This is why Monsieur loves Paris so much: in a city which changes so much from district to district, nothing obliges you to always remain the same.
