You will find that Hotel Mistral is one of the family run hotels in Paris and situated on a one way side street in a typical Parisian building that is spread over several floors, the first thing you will notice is a plaque right by the entrance to this hotel.
It is because the Hotel Mistral has been a hotel for many decades and two famous writers called Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre stayed at this 3 star hotel in Paris on several occasions during the 1940s. Yet to provide space for their individual inspiration and still maintain their relationship, they always had separate rooms.
