Hotel Chopin also dates to the opening of the Passage in 1846, this makes it one of the oldest hotel in the capital. Indeed, the hotels were very numerous in Paris before the development of transport by train.
At the time, named “Family Hotel”, its door has never been closed since 1846. It does not even have a lock! There is a person at the reception since that date, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For a grand total of 61320 days open days for Hotel Chopin!
The facade, as well as the rest of the passage, is classified historical monument.
