A little jewel from the 30s, wrapped up in a pocket handkerchief, oozing charm and ostentatious luxury.
Located just a stone's throw from the Champs Elysées, this is the ideal district, and indeed the ideal hotel, from which to explore the festive side of Paris, whilst the many shops of the Champs Elysées and the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré will have shopping fans in their element.
Gerald Nanty, owner of the hotel, restaurant and bar, is a very well-known and well-respected gentleman in Parisian circles and sees his hotel business as providing accommodation for friends!
The entrance and reception are rather intimate and you'll notice that Art Deco features heavily here, from the 1930s stained glass window and the Art Deco tiling in the lobby to the 1900s lift. Add to this the panther-like carpet going up the stairs and it soon becomes clear that this is a highly personalised hotel. Free Wi-Fi access is also available, and there are not fitness facilities at the hotel.
The hotel's 23 guest rooms are unique to their kind. The decor was in fact chosen by the manageress of the hotel who took inspiration from the boudoir of Marie-Antoinette, combining this with other Neo-Baroque and Orientalist Art Deco styles. The result is a combination of zebra-print carpet, rattan chairs, a red fabric wall covering and pleated silk lampshades. The rooms come in 3 different categories, namely Classic, Superior and Junior Suite. The superior rooms all have a separate toilet and a welcome tray, whilst the Junior Suites can even accommodate a sofa.
It's difficult to grade or review a restaurant and a bar which even the management don't wish to talk about. They are both renowned for being extremely selective and a favoured hang-out of Parisian celebrities, so the atmosphere can get pretty crazy here, particularly very late at night. Unless you have a name which everyone knows, you'll be very hard-pushed to get a reservation here, and the bar is even sometimes closed to hotel guests.
