In its heyday its proximity to the Harbour and the town centre made the Hotel de l'Europe one of the most important in St Helier. Opened in the mid-19th century and renowned for comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine, today it is no longer a hotel, but a restaurant and nightspot called Chambers

Notes and references

  1. Early records suggest that the hotel did not always occupy both Nos 4 and 5
  2. Pierre Tremel's will was drawn up in 1921 while he was still manager of the Hotel
  3. As the linked Jerripedia article makes clear, Marx not only dined here but he stayed at the hotel
