Welcome to Hotel Asile Flottant!

‘Este un hôtel juste un hôtel?’

Le Corbusier, Swiss-French Architect (1887 – 1965)

We realize it’s pretty swanky quoting a world-famous architect but since we took our
name, Asile Flottant, from a ship designed by Le Corbusier we feel comfortable doing
so. In the harsh Parisian winter of 1929, Le Corbusier, in close cooperation with the
Salvation Army, docked his 80-meter vessel close to the Palais du Louvre to offer
shelter to the homeless. During the summer Asile Flottant hosted holiday-camps for
children from poor families. Clearly Le Corbusier did not just design a ship, he
created a purposeful haven that has been an inspiration for many. Including
ourselves. Here’s another almost-hundred- year-old quote that still gets us going
today:
‘…Asile Flottant is an epicurean shelter for the modern-day vagrant who wishes to
embark on a journey extraordinaire…’
In 2017, eighty-eight years after Le Corbusier opened his boat in the Senne, we have
launched our modern-day Asile Flottant. Like the original, also we do not want to be
juste un hôtel; we aim to re-live the social vibes welcoming all walks of life to our
sustainable floating hotel rooms in renovated historic vessels. We are proud on what
we have achieved and we would love to make you part of our extraordinary journey.
