See the map
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 8.25 /10

    The Bristol is close to the Champs-Elysées in a peaceful and upmarket part of the 8th arrondissement. There are metro stations nearby, and the Avenue des Champs Elysées is full of restaurants, bars and shops.

    Accommodation 9.75 /10

    First of all, it is worth remembering that all the rooms and suites are going to be renovated in 2011.
    The 187 guest rooms and suites are all decorated in the same very classic French style, but they nevertheless all remain unique. The manageress seems to have a particular liking for floral fabrics. It is also worth pointing out that everything in the hotel is original, so there are no reproductions or copies here. Even though the decor is old-fashioned (crystal chandeliers, paintings by the Masters, floral and striped patterns, old engravings, Louis XV and Louis XVI period furniture, etc.), the level of comfort is modern: there is a television, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi access (charged), a video player, and a dressing room. Offering all the facilities you might expect to find in a luxury hotel, you are sure to have an enjoyable and hassle-free stay here. The guest rooms are located in various different parts of the hotel: the old original building dating back to 1925, the old convent, which was bought in 1979 and renovated in 2010, and the new wing, which was renovated in 2009. Some of the attic rooms offer views over the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais. The bathrooms are very spacious, and are adorned with pink marble from Portugal or white marble from Carrara. They are provided with a shower and a bathtub, and one of the suites even has its own hammam in the bathroom. Three quarters of the bathrooms enjoy the benefit of natural light. The toilets are separate in all the rooms.

    Overview 9.75 /10

    The Bristol began life back in April 1925. During the Second World War, it became the official residence of American citizens in Paris, because it was the only hotel to have an anti-gas shelter at the time. The hotel remained the property of its original owners, the French Jammet family, until 1978, when it was bought by a German family called Oetker, which still owns the establishment today. Since it opened in 1925, the hotel has undergone several modifications. In 1979, it expanded into the garden wing, which used to be a convent. This part of the hotel is now home to the meeting rooms and banqueting halls, as well as a few guest rooms. The 6th floor swimming pool with its views over the whole of Paris and the 1,200m² formal garden were both created in 1979. The solarium around the swimming pool is quite original owing to its 6th floor perch, and may make you feel as though you're on a yacht because the whole setting is finished in teak panelling. Large picture windows offer views over the capital. Getting back to the history of the hotel, a new wing was added to the original building in 2009, and this now contains 26 guest rooms and the restaurant/brasserie, the 114 Faubourg. The owners have been keen to preserve the hotel's original decor, and the 18th Century style is on display in all its splendour. All the objects, fabrics, tapestries (made by the Gobelins manufacturers) and Masters paintings are original, with not a copy in sight. Another more hidden advantage of the hotel is its magnificent formal garden, which is said to be the largest garden of all the luxury hotels in Paris. There is not much to say about the spa at this point in time, because it is due to be completely renovated. The only information we have is that this will contain 10 massage rooms. The hotel also has a gym, but this is going to be moved to a new location in 2011.

    Food and drink 9.75 /10

    The Bristol is known throughout the capital for its gourmet restaurant, and also for its new brasserie, the 114 Faubourg, which opened in 2009. The gourmet restaurant is also going to move shortly to a new location next to the garden. For the time being, the dining room - which used to be a theatre, hence its oval shape - is located in a room near the lobby. The gourmet restaurant has been awarded 3 Michelin stars for its extremely refined take on French cuisine. It is open every day, all year round. Products like pastries, cakes and bread are all made in its kitchens. In the winter, refined dishes can be enjoyed in the magnificent dining room, which was once a theatre and is still decorated in period style with Baccarat crystal chandeliers, wood panelling, tapestries, and a ceiling finished in gold leaf... In the summer, you can enjoy the cuisine of chef Eric Fréchon on the garden terrace. The hotel's other eating option is the 114 Faubourg, a brasserie that opened in the wing that was newly acquired in 2009. It serves tasty modern dishes showcasing fresh seasonal vegetables in a modern two-floor setting with a hint of Japanese-style decor. For example, the walls are painted with dahlias, much like a Japanese partition, and there is a lot of wood on show. Guests are sure to be impressed by the show cooking, which means they can watch their dish being prepared right before their eyes. There is also an impressive wine list containing quality vintages. The very cosy ambience makes this an ideal place for lunch with friends. Aficionados of fine wine might wish to participate in the wine-tasting evenings that are held on the first Monday of the month. Lunch and dinner can also be enjoyed in the less formal setting provided in the bar, which is one of the capital's prime meeting places for the rich and powerful. Artists, businessmen, politicians and faces from the media and fashion worlds congregate here to sample a cocktail or two from the barman's many original creations. Teatime is also an institution at the Bristol. Between 3:00pm and 6:00pm, you can choose from a selection of 15 different teas accompanied by petit-fours, sandwiches and other pastries.

    To know

    The Bristol is planning to gradually renovate its guest rooms and spa/well-being space, and is hoping to have completed this work by around May 2011. It is also worth knowing that a brand new spa is due to open its doors in July 2011. It will have 10 treatment rooms, and the gym will be given a new home. Also, the gourmet restaurant will be moved next to the summer restaurant and the garden. Children staying here are greeted like little princes and princesses. On arrival, they are given a stuffed toy, Hippolyte the garden rabbit, as well as a welcome booklet. Baby linen, children's soaps and shampoos, a welcome snack and a special menu give an idea of how much attention your little darlings will receive here.

      A small boutique property in the heart of the city, the Hôtel du Ministère is a calm oasis of a property combining modern design with hints of the 1950s. It has a nice mix of natural materials throughout and cosy public spaces featuring locally purchased artwork. The 24 rooms are of Parisian size (read small) but they are well equipped and nicely-appointed. With complimentary breakfast and wifi and a helpful, friendly staff, this hotel is recommended rather for couples visiting Paris for the weekend rather than for businesspeople or those on extended stays.

      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.

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

      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.

      Crossing the threshold into the Intercontinental hotel brings you closer to the great historical events the French capital has experienced. Listed as a historical monument and opposite the Opéra, the Intercontinental was opened in 1862 by Offenbach and is one of the most legendary luxury hotels Paris has to offer. Both the staff and the decor reach the kind of standards that will satisfy even the most demanding of guests. The only thing that could be seen as negative is the very formal nature of the welcome. If you do not like the French style of service, you are best off choosing elsewhere.
