La Samaritaine reopens its doors after more than fifteen years

This summer you can discover the legendary temple of Parisian shopping called La Samaritaine. Setting out from your Hotel Danube, all you have to do is cross the Seine to reach this superb building that has been enhanced by over fifteen years of renovation and restoration. Let us tell you about it ...

 

The quintessence of the Parisian department store

Ernest Cognacq was quite simply a visionary when, in 1870, he opened the doors of La Samaritaine, situated a few steps from the Pont-Neuf and the Rue de Rivoli. His department store concept, which remains surprisingly fresh, has been redesigned to meet modern expectations but nestles wonderfully in the setting of the old building. You will thus find all the Art Deco and Art Nouveau elements that make the place so distinctive, including its immense glass roof, botanically inspired balusters, golden mosaics and, of course, its magnificent flights of stairs.

 

A store like no other

During its restoration, Le Samaritaine evolved considerably, but you’ll still find the collections of the major fashion and design brands that helped to establish the store’s reputation, and which remain in step with Parisian trends. You can also stroll through its exhibition spaces dedicated to contemporary creation, dine beneath the frescoes and glass roof of the Voyage restaurant overseen by the starred chef Mathieu Viannay, take a gourmet break in one of the tea rooms or even treat yourself to some quality me-time in the Spa and beauty area. Whether it’s a private guided tour with an expert or a special outing with a personal shopper, simple window shopping or a gourmet experience, La Samaritaine has something for everyone.
Parisians missed La Samaritaine for 16 years. Its return is causing a sensation and marks a new era in high-end French shopping. Be sure to visit it during your stay at the Hotel Danube.
