This hotel was recently taken over by new owners, and the decor in the hall, lounge and breakfast room are now definitely worth a look for their modern and very aesthetic style. These spaces outshine the guest rooms, which have only been given a fresh coat of paint.

    Location 5.62 /10

    7/10
    This hotel is right in the north of the 11th arrondissement, close to Place de la République and just on the border of the 10th arrondissement. There is a Vélib' bike station just outside, and Goncourt metro station is nearby, providing a direct link to Châtelet. The hotel is in a little one-way street and could hardly be more peaceful. Not too far from the hotel, you can find the start of Canal Saint Martin, whose banks and bridges make for a beautiful walk up towards La Villette.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    The guest rooms here are rather odd, because although some of them have been refurbished, it looks as if the job was abandoned when only half done. For the time being, they have only been repainted. All of the rooms are slightly different to one another. One has a pretty, Moroccan-style tadelak wall, another is decorated in a normal, mundane beige colour, and a third is purple. It is a pity that no concerted effort has been made with the decor, because those changes that have been made are certainly an improvement. Some of the bathrooms have been completely renovated to superb effect, with gentle lighting and modern tiling. Finally, the reception staff are very attentive, free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the hotel, and you can borrow a laptop computer if you don't have your own.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    This International hotel was bought at the end of 2010 by two brothers who already own several hotels in Paris. Lots of renovations have already been carried out, and more are planned. The breakfast room and a pleasant reception lounge have already had their facelift and are now decorated in a more modern fashion. The lounge is a very pretty, welcoming and cosy room, and visitors will find it hard to resist sinking deeply into the three beautifully tempting sofas. The colours of their walls and floors are also in keeping with the elegant contemporary style. The breakfast room at the back of the hotel has also been renovated, and its decor now features lots of stone and pebble-covered sections on the walls. The owners make the croissants themselves, which is an excellent idea, and one seen all too rarely. The breakfast room opens onto a tiny inner courtyard where a table and two chairs are tucked away. You won't be able to enjoy a family breakfast out there, but it still remains a nice idea.

      The Léonard de Vinci is a small and rather classic hotel. It is neither a particularly charming nor romantic address, but provides a good starting point to launch on an exploration of the city.

      This is an interesting and charming boutique hotel that is found in a small and discreet building. Exposed stone walls, wooden beams, and rustic tiles make for an atypical hotel that is both private and warm. There is only one way to describe the style of the guest rooms: pretty.

      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.
