    Location 5.02 /10


    There are a few cafés and brasseries at the crossroads of the Boulevard Pasteur and the Rue de Vaugirard, but the main advantage of the area is its proximity to the Gare Montparnasse station, a single metro stop or a fifteen-minute walk away. The Rue de Vaugirard, one of the capital's longest streets, stretches all the way from the Porte de Versailles on the edge of the city to the Jardin du Luxembourg gardens.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The renovated rooms are perfectly acceptable, suitably proportioned and conventionally decorated in a colour scheme featuring plenty of red. Amenities include a generously-sized flat-screen television broadcasting TNT and a few satellite channels, and Wi-Fi access is free throughout the hotel. Finally, the bright, functional bathrooms come with a shower, shower gel and shampoo.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    The hotel is housed in a seven-storey building built at the beginning of the last century and was converted to its current purpose in the fifties. The current owner has been in charge for the last ten years and renovated part of the building two years ago. Therefore, whilst the breakfast room feels very fresh, the carpets in the corridors and the stairwell could do with being changed. The lift stops between floors and provides access to forty rooms.

      This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.

      The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.

      The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.

    • W Paris - Opéra W Paris - Opéra W Paris - Opéra

      • Value for money 7.33
      • Location 8.85

      Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
      Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.

      At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.

      The Meurice is one of Paris's best addresses. With its contemporary yet quintessentially Parisian décor realised by great names such as Stark and his daughter. The Meurice is an exclusive haunt. the hotel's main restaurant, Le Meurice, is headed by 3 Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno which is, needless to say, one of the highlights of a stay at the hotel. In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
