EUROPE. SAARLOUIS, GERMANY.
LA MAISON HOTEL.
Straddling a stately past and striking present, La Maison Hotel brings upscale hospitality and a gourmet touch to the small German city of Saarlouis, about 10 kilometres from the French border. Spread across a grand renovated villa and modern bronze, aluminium-fronted building situated in park-like surrounds, the property – part of the Design HotelsTM portfolio – both harks back to the opulent days of French King Louis XIV (after which Saarlouis is named) and evokes the present with its sleek architectural additions. The mix of vintage and contemporary furniture and the creative dining – combining tradition and innovation – continue this theme. Guests can enjoy the fare in both the gourmet LOUIS restaurant, set in a former courtroom, or PASTIS bistro with its glass-walled winter garden suspended over the park, while the cosy bar set in the library offers the feeling of home reflected in the hotel’s own name.
