A little history
The building, which now houses this 3-star hotel in Menton, was built in 1908, in the Menton tradition, by members of the Castellana family. Originally, apartments, a refreshment bar and stables, composed the building. At the beginning of the last century, Menton was a holiday resort prized by the English. The district of Garavan, is transformed then, very quickly in a haven of peace and calm. Over the years, the bar turns into a restaurant, then the apartments become hotel rooms 2 stars. It is in 1998, that the hotel Paris-Rome, becomes the hotel 3 stars in Menton, which you know today.
The fountain in front of the hotel
This fountain was built by a member of the Castellana family, at the request of Mr. Hanbury. At the time, the horses could drink there in order to finish their ascent. Famous building of Menton, the film, with Louis de Funès and Bourvil, "le Corniaud", shot scenes around this fountain.
This charming hotel in Menton, the Paris-Rome hotel, is halfway between the cities of Paris and Rome. At the creation of the building, people making the trip between these two towns, stopped at this hotel-relay to make a stopover and rest the horses. This is how the establishment got that name.
