    Location 8.73 /10

    17/20
    Standing at the corner of the Rue de Archives and Rue de la Verrerie, this is a magnificent hotel in the heart of the Marais district. The neighbourhood has a completely strategic location and is also stunningly beauty. From the hotel, you can visit the entire historic centre of Paris on foot: Notre-Dame, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Ile Saint-Louis, and the Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall): all are only a 20 minute walk away. Plus, one of the most picturesque sights in Paris is also only a few streets away: the Place des Vosges. The history-laden alleys that run through the Marais neighbourhood are rich in surprises and easily accessible from the hotel. A few metro stations and voilà: the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, and the Latin Quarter. The banks of the Seine are sometimes closed to traffic and provide the perfect setting for a nice stroll. Villa Mazarine is right next to the Hôtel de Ville metro station, on line 1, which runs across the whole of Paris; each stop leads to a world famous monument.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel includes standard and superior double rooms, some duplex rooms, and an apartment. The simple categories are decorated with as much elegance as the luxury rooms. The only difference resides in their respective sizes. An original feature of this hotel is that each floor has a different style and personality, although the establishment follows a general common theme. The colour of the rooms and corridors changes from one floor to the next, here a green one, there a blue one, and then a grey one. Each floor is marked by a unique and particular atmosphere. Despite this diversity, all of the units are warm and inviting, and you'd be hard pushed to choose your favourite decorative theme. The elegant white furniture is made of wood and there are armchairs in every room, some even have a Hindu statue. The tiled bathrooms are decorated in dark grey and boast a very modern style. In the entrance of each room there is a 'courtesy' area with a sink, some crockery, and a minibar. The rooms on the 5th floor have a large balcony. The nicest units are the duplex rooms, with their beautiful sitting room on the bottom level and a cosy and charming room on the top one. Wi-Fi access is available for free.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The hotel stands on a street corner above a restaurant. The wrap-around windows afford some pretty nice views. Villa Mazarine is a beautiful hotel, full of charm and personality. It skillfully blends modern and designer interior and furniture with more traditional decorative elements. Thus, the corridors are painted in pastel colours (quite modern) and boast finely worked mirrors. 'Empire' style furniture covered with white fabrics has also been added for a modern touch. Finally, the old stone walls are lit up in pink. Thus, various styles, fashions, and trends are cleverly thrown together. One of the assets of the hotel is a little interior courtyard with a wooden terrace, furnished with chairs and tables. It's a nice place to have breakfast. In the basement, the 'official' breakfast room and hotel bar occupy a pretty cellar with vaulted ceilings. The highly sophisticated furniture and the tables with white tablecloths are another added touch of refinement.

      All about location, the De Lutèce is a great little hotel on the Saint Louis island right in the centre of Paris. A two minute walk away from Notre Dame and right on the Seine, this is definitely one place to try out when staying in the capital. It doesn't do lunch or dinner, but who wants to eat at a hotel when one has Paris to play with?

      The Duo is contemporary and in a prime location right next to the Paris Town Hall (the Hôtel de Ville) where most areas are accessible on foot. The area is very animated with the Beaubourg around the corner but the hotel is fairly quiet when the windows are shut. Duo is an all-round good place to stay despite it not having anything specifically Parisian about it a part from the toiletries and the stairway in the old part of the establishment which is said to have been used by Marie Antoinette.

      The Villa Saint Germain is nestled in an alley behind the church of Saint Germain des Prés. It was once very well known for its jazz club, and although this venue so beloved of fans of the genre has been closed for years, its famous name lives on in the hotel. Renovations carried out in 2001 gave the establishment a modern look based on a minimalistic design. This is a small, family-owned establishment without much in the way of communal space; instead, proud of the neighbourhood in which it is located, it actively encourages its guests to get out and about to make the most of the many attractions of the City of Light.

      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 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.
