Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

The pool was built as a municipal facility in 1929 and closed in 1989, as an apartment block was to be built on the site. The apartment project was never begun, however, and the pool sat empty until the property was leased to the hotel operator who refurbished it for reopening in May, 2014.
The hotel operates Club Molitor, which grants access to the pools and other health club facilities to its members.
In addition to hotel guests and Club Molitor members, the pools are also available to clients when they purchase at least one hour costing at least €250.00 of spa services. Those were the terms of an offer valid from June 1 through September 30, 2017. We are willing to bet that a similar offer will be put in place after the expiration of this one, but there are no guaranties.

Facility Reviews

Rating: 9 on a scale of 10.
This is a wonderful facility. The old Molitor pool served the City of Paris for many years and was a romantic hangout for the Western side of Paris. The new hotel is built around both old pool shapes, with rooms looking onto the large pool. The long pool encourages lounging and playing but has lane markings and is a great feeling swim. In the outdoor pool, one, long lap lane is marked and usable; there is a divider across the pool at the 35-meter mark for the rest of the lanes. The inside, 33-meter pool has a cathedral atmosphere, unfortunately, the lanes dividers are ropes. It's spotless. Nothing is too much trouble. There's a very romantic feel to swimming here. Non-hotel guest users belong to a private fitness club. But the pool is lightly used for laps. That one pool will always be open is guaranteed.
