La Samaritaine: the reopening of a legendary department store
Paris has a reputation as a great place to go shopping and this is partly due to its famous Grands Magasins (Department Stores). There’s Printemps, BHV, Bon Marché, but also and above all La Samaritaine, which occupies a dream location. Closed for more than 15 long years, it is finally reopening its doors ... Discover it during your stay at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet.
A historic place
La Samaritaine occupies a dream location between the Pont-Neuf and the Rue de Rivoli, a few steps from the Louvre and its Pyramid. This magnificent Art Deco and Art Nouveau building, listed as a Monument Historique, has been restored to highlight every architectural detail and the splendour of the whole. Its immense glass roof, its staircases and their ornate railings, its frescoes with gilded mosaics… The sumptuous decor is remarkable and well worth seeing even if you don’t plan to shop.
An extraordinary shopping experience
La Samaritaine also took the opportunity to rethink its approach to retail and the customer experience. You will thus find the fashion, design and other brands that have made its reputation, but also the work of young designers on the rise to prominence. A starred restaurant awaits you under the glass roof as well as many gourmet dining areas. You’ll also be tempted by the largest beauty space in Paris. What’s more, part of the place is dedicated to contemporary art with temporary exhibitions by promising young artists.
About ten minutes away by Metro from your Hotel Eiffel Blomet, La Samaritaine is a place to rediscover. Treat yourself to an experience in the purest Parisian tradition!
