Standing out in the most popular district of Paris, already richly equipped with hotel establishments, is not an easy thing. Yet Hotel Sookie did it.

At the end of confinement, the Madého group, which owns around ten hotels, renovated and upgraded a pre-existing hotel to make it a 4-star in Haut-Marais.

Sookie Hotel Room

With its neo-vintage decor, the Sookie looks like a house of good friends that jazzman Grant Green, prodigious interpreter of Sookie Sookie (a piece that everyone knows without knowing it), would not have denied.

The swaying air inspired the architects Dorothée Delaye and Daphné Desjeux who restored luster to this building on rue des Commines which housed, in the XNUMXth century, the convent of the Filles du Calvaires.

This perhaps explains it: three centuries later, a certain serenity still permeates the place – a perfect place to cut yourself off from the city while still being right there.

“Le Sookie welcomes you to the heart of the Marais, in the most beautiful neighborhood in the world”

Organic materials perhaps have something to do with it: old stone, wooden beams but also marble, bamboo.

Muted or bright shades, but always organic, also soothe: sandstone, almond, tobacco, sienna, beige. The decor is worked with care. On the walls we notice photos from the Incognito gallery.

For residents of the neighborhood who will not have the opportunity to enjoy the 31 rooms, there is still the coffee shop, a small space ideal for an intimate brunch, tea time with homemade babka or a drink before going to dinner at Mary Céleste. , just in front.

During Ashtanga Yoga sessions with Callie Mahoney, you feel like you're going to the end of the world, somewhere on a distant island. Normal: this former model who has been practicing yoga since a young age herself comes from Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

An extraordinary dance course for All Saints’ Day

Then we dance ? Yes, and not with just anyone! During the All Saints' Day holidays, the Nadine Bommer Dance Academy company takes up residence at the Center de Danse du Marais, where we sway our hips in a thousand ways, always with grace and good humor.

Where to swim in le Marais ?

Where to swim in le Marais ?

With the summer holidays approaching, what could be better than a few swimming sessions to create a summer body? Alas, le Marais only has one swimming pool on its territory, that of Saint-Merri, opposite Beaubourg (4th). Fortunately, two pools are not far away…

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.
