This is a very beautiful hotel located in a 17th century building next to the Place des Vosges. The communal spaces bring to mind the age-old origins of the place, while the guest rooms are very attractively decorated in a more modern, uncluttered style.

    Location 7.16 /10

    7/10
    As its name suggests, Hôtel de la Place des Vosges is located in a little street just next to the superb square from which it takes its name. This positioning is exceptional because you just have to walk a few metres to get to the chic, peaceful ambience that reigns over the square, one of the nicest spots in Paris and a really pleasant place for a stroll. Other than that, it is at the crossroads of several famous and dynamic areas in Paris' city centre. Located between the 3rd and 11th arrondissements, it is easy to access the city's nightlife and to explore its cultural and touristic highlights all on foot. To one side unfolds the Marais, with its museums (Picasso, Carnavalet, Beaubourg) and narrow streets leading down to the river Seine. To another side are the some of the capital's liveliest places, with the bars of Oberkampf and the watering holes around Place de Bastille and its maze of alleys bursting with restaurants, all kinds and clubs, and friendly pubs. There's plenty to suit everyone if you're prepared to explore the city a little. The hotel is close to the Bastille metro station.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    With only 16 guest rooms (all doubles), this hotel has a very intimate feel. Unlike the communal spaces, which bring to mind the age-old origins of the place, the guest rooms have been renovated in a very modern style. The wooden beams supporting the ceiling provide the only remaining evidence here of the building's history. Everything else has been designed in a dignified, understated, and contemporary style. With white and grey walls, white bedsheets, and new parquet flooring, there is little superfluous decoration. Instead, it is all particularly refined. The bathrooms are perfect little gems of interior design covered with small black mosaic tiles. Far from being gloomy, however, they ooze class.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    This is a very beautiful hotel. Even from the outside, the appearance and tranquillity of the place are striking. The façade is covered in plants growing up the walls from pots, giving the front door and windows a distinctly rural look. The hotel is in fact located in an imposing old building whose beautiful solid wood beams, which can be seen throughout, give it a medieval feel. It is a classy, sophisticated place. There is a smart and elegant reception lounge just next to the entrance, furnished with armchairs with antique upholstery. The breakfast room is just next to reception, and its position overlooking the street means it enjoys the benefits of natural light. Beautiful wooden tables and the tapestries on the wall give it a feeling of exotic manorial comfort.

      This extraordinary hotel stands on Place des Vosges, one of Paris's most beautiful squares, which unravels just at the foot of the hotel, inviting its guests to a little stroll. This hotel has many assets, such as a very green inner courtyard, extreme comfort in the common areas and discreet luxury. The decoration manages to unite the old and venerable building with present-day fashion, which interprets French classics.

      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.

In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
