Hotel Lord Byron

On 20 October 1932, the Joyce family moved into the Hotel Lord Byron at 5 Rue Chateaubriand in the 8th arrondissement, on an S-shaped street one block from the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, but on the northern side. Far from the Seine, and twenty-five minutes to the Eiffel Tower, it was, however, closer to the Arc de Triomphe and his closest residence to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, one of the most famous avenues in the world.

Hotel Lord Byron no longer exists. The building was being renovated in 2019, and it is not clear whether it will continue to be a hotel.

James Joyce stayed here for one month from 20 October to 17 November 1932.
