Amy Adejokun Section editor

The accommodation at this hotel is pretty inconsistent; some of the guest rooms seem to be crumbling with wear and tear and feature outdated furniture whilst others are in the process of being renovated. Having said that, it's not a bad option as the staff are pleasant and some of the guest rooms are obviously more appealing and less shabby than others.

    Location 9.03 /10

    6/10
    The hotel stands on a quiet street to the north-east of the 2nd arrondissement, on the border with the 3rd and 10th arrondissements. It is also very close to the Porte Saint Denis, the Arc de Triomphe-like structure that stands in the middle of the Grands Boulevards district. The Bonne Nouvelle is pretty well-located at the very heart of Paris, at a reasonable distance from République, Châtelet and historic attractions such as the Louvre and the Tuileries. Lines 4, 8 and 9 of the city's metro system pass by just a few metres away, providing easy access to pretty much all of the city's tourist attractions. In fact, the Eiffel Tower, the Trocadéro, Notre-Dame and even Bastille are just a few stops away on the metro.

    Accommodation 5.20 /10

    When it comes to its guest rooms, this hotel is very inconsistent, which we thought was a real shame. It offers double and triple rooms and even a room for four people on the 6th floor, not to mention its crowning glory - a wonderful fully-equipped five-person apartment which really does come up trumps. The decor in the guest rooms is very modest and not the most flattering, with old, worn fabrics on the walls and wallpaper which is torn in places, making for rather shabby surroundings which really do bear the scars of their past. The furniture, too, is limited to a strict minimum and is often poorly-matched and not particularly tasteful. Having said that, some of the rooms do feature lovely new modern wall-lights. All this mismatched and frankly quite unappealing decor is in fact the first target in a major series of modifications, renovation work and paper-stripping that will see the guest rooms made over in a far more modern style, so you'll have to forgive the untidiness for the time being, even if you find it off-putting at first. The bathrooms, meanwhile, feature very original tiling with a very tasteful natural mineral effect. It'll come as no surprise that the hotel's crowning glory is its one-storey apartment next door, overlooking the street. The decor here is very modern as it has just been refurbished. The apartment can accommodate 5 people, with a sofa-bed in the large lounge area and a beautiful bedroom to the rear. There is also a kitchen with a modern fitted breakfast bar and crockery and electrical appliances are provided, so you can be as independent as you please. The decor is generally very minimalist and contemporary and features very trendy shades of chocolate and white.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    This hotel is sure to leave you with a luke-warm impression since, although on the one hand it does offer the best, on the other some of the rooms are very ordinary. Some parts of the hotel have been renovated but the rest appear very worn and tired. The breakfast room, for example, is located in a recess to the left of the reception and features colourful decor and round modern tables making for warm and friendly surroundings. The view of the street is obstructed by coloured tiled glass windows casting colourful light across the room. In terms of communal areas, that's all this little hotel has to offer. You're also sure to receive a very warm welcome here.

      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.
