Hotel Grand Powers

Before the Joyce family left to go to England, they spent almost two weeks in the Hotel Grand Powers in the 8th arrondissement at 52 Rue Francoise 1er in the 8th arrondissement. They intended to relocate to London permanently.

Hotel Grand Powers still exists. It is located at 52 Rue Francois 1er near the Avenue des Champs-Elysées in the Golden Triangle, a prestigious area of Paris.

The hotel is twenty minutes by foot south-west to the Eiffel Tower, but much closer to the Arc de Triomphe.

James Joyce stayed here for two weeks in April 1931.
