History of the hotel
The building was handed down to a former palace worker as a gift for his devotion and loyalty to the dynasty. During the French protectorate, his son lovingly restored many of its original features and the address became synonymous with glamorous society balls and parties. In 2001 in partnership with Historical Monuments Organisation it was revived once again.
