    Location 8.99 /10

    The hotel is located at the heart of the 9th arrondissement, close to the city's major department stores and is therefore ideal for shoppers, and the perfect base from which to explore Parisian life. There are many bars and restaurants in the vicinity and the hotel is also well-located for seeing the city and its attractions, with the Opéra, St Augustin and Montmartre districts all within walking distance. The closest metro stations are Le Peletier (line 7) and Chaussée d'Antin La Fayette (lines 7 and 9).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The corridors of the hotel make for a truly unique exhibition space where the personal collection of jewellery from around the world belonging to the owner of the hotel, a former archaeologist, is displayed. The hotel's 95 guest rooms are done out in the same revisited Neo-Baroque style as the rest of the hotel so the surroundings are quite flashy in some places, stylish in others. These 95 rooms include 20 Singles, 27 Doubles, 20 Executive rooms, 9 Deluxe rooms and 18 Suites, with floor areas ranging from 18 to 55m². The Deluxe Suite is in fact the former office of the hotel's Managing Director, which explains the golden leaves in the corridor leading up to it. In-room amenities include a flat-screen television, individual air-conditioning, a mini-bar and a safe, whilst the particularly impressive bathrooms come with a range of The White Collection hospitality products, a hair-dryer, bathrobes and slippers.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    As you walk along the Rue La Fayette, you really cannot miss this imposing building which actually once housed a bank. As soon as you set foot inside the door you'll find yourself in a huge, impressive lobby with a very high, glass-topped ceiling. They have even preserved the original counters here where customers used to come to change money. The revisited Neo-Baroque-style decor incorporates a few more stylish touches giving the place a more flashy, vibrant and imposing yet nevertheless original feel. The red colour used, for example, is not a standard Pantone colour but was in fact created exclusively for the hotel, and the mosaic floor is also original. The floor below houses the spa, which includes a sauna, a hammam and a gym with 3 cardio machines, a bike and showers. Make sure you take a peek at the toilets, too - the imitation python skin and green marble are well worth a look! Free Wi-Fi and an internet corner are also available.

    Food and drink 7.75 /10

    The Lolabar in the lobby, which is furnished with Starckian ghost tables, serves a selection of traditional tapas and all sorts of cocktails and is open from 9:00am to 9:00pm There is also an Afterwork event held on Thursday and Friday from 6:00pm to 10:00pm with a different DJ every time and an entrance fee of around £18 which includes 3 tapas and 2 glasses of champagne. The Josefin restaurant, just opposite, is open from 12:00pm to 3:00pm and from 7:30pm to 11:00pm and serves Mediterranean cuisine incorporating fine Spanish produce but with a French twist. The breakfast room is located on the basement level and is perfectly pleasant, though it does seem a little small given the number of rooms at the hotel.

      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.

      • 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.
