The Mistral Hotel is in the heart of the 14th arrondissement of Paris, less than ten minutes’ walk from the Montparnasse station, the Foundation Cartier, and the Luxembourg garden. A 3-star family hotel, which far from impersonal chains, offers 37 comfortable and decorated rooms in a contemporary, elegant, and discreet atmosphere.
Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre (two illustrious writers ) stayed at the Hotel Mistral on several occasions in the 1940s. For their relationship’s sake and to give space to their inspiration, they occupied separate rooms. The hotel is mentioned several times in their books. You can find all of their published writings in our library.
