Amy Adejokun Section editor

Le Pradey is a gem of a hotel which not only boasts a desirable location in the heart of Paris, but also world class design and interiors which embody the city from two of its top names. Its rooms and suites, some of which are truly unique, are of course relatively small given its location, however they are tastefully appointed and extremely comfortable with good amenities and classy touches to boot. With pleasant public spaces, an excellent breakfast and personable staff, Le Pradey is the ideal place for both business and leisure stays whether this is your first or one hundredth trip to the city of lights. There's no hiding the hefty price tag, but there's no question you get your money's worth.

    Location 7.97 /10

    The hotel is on rue St. Roch, a small street which runs off of rue de Rivoli, meaning that you are in the heart of the city but without being able to hear all its noise! On your doorstep are the Tuileries gardens (Jeu de Paume, l'Orangerie) the Louvre, the Palais Royal, the Seine and of course the luxury shops of rue Saint-Honoré and Madeleine (a little further afield). Getting to the rest of the city is easy as there are three métro stations all within a couple of minutes' walk of the hotel as well as a couple of bus lines. If you are arriving by car then you can park it one of the two car parks just several hundred metres from Le Pradey, although you should know that rates are high in Paris.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    There are a total of 28 rooms across six floors at Le Pradey. Ten of these rooms are suites, of which four are sponsored by Hermès and so are decorated using materials from the luxury French brand. Some of the regular guestrooms are a little on the small side, although they are extremely well appointed and are light and airy. Fitted out in the materials mentioned in the introduction, they have a queen bed dressed in beautiful linens as well as interesting textured walls which are well exposed by the good range of lighting in the room (a little complicated at times to operate). Most rooms have a small seating area with armchairs and occasional table and a complimentary bottle of San Pellegrino. Amenities include a flatscreen television, cordless telephone, minibar/snack tray, safe and bathrobes and slippers. The bathrooms are relatively large and each is decorated differently with, for example, white Parisian métro tiles and black, white and gold floor details. They boast a large wash basin with a regular and make-up mirror and a bathtub with shower as well as personalised organic toiletries and other bathroom amenities.

    The Parisian suites, of which there are four, are more spacious options and have a separate living space. The Louvre, for example, is fairly sober and has a queen bed whose headboard has integrated reading lamps and storage niches. Behind the bed is the bathroom with walk-in shower and the separate WC while in the adjoining room is a sofa and coffee table with complimentary water and chocolates as well as Fragonard fragrances and another bathroom with a tub. Then there is the Grand Palais which has nods towards Paul Smith while the Geode, similar in style, has extra technological features such as a games console and screen in the bathroom.

    The fifth floor of the hotel is dedicated to the Hermès rooms. Each individually decorated, they are more spacious and boast luxury furnishings and fittings all from the famous brand. Each boasts the highest standard of materials (linens, furnishings, woodwork etc) and some even have a private balcony.

    The two most impressive rooms however are those conceived by Chantal Thomass: Cabaret and Opéra. The former is a celebration of the old French tradition with a veritable boudoir in red and black with all manner of unique touches such as the heart shaped entrance to the bathroom, the illustrations incorporated into the light switches, the mosaiced windmill and the carpet with quotes from famous French authors. The other of her rooms is a pink homage to the Palais Garnier with dancing figures present on several surfaces and a special coiffeuse for the ladies.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The smart, well-kept frontage of Le Pradey tells much of what lies past the entrance. The small but welcoming lobby is where you will be greeted with a broad smile by the front desk staff that stand behind a modest marble structure right opposite the front door. The high ceilinged space has several contemporary lamps hanging down from atop as well as a cage full of convincing model birds which are very much à la mode at the moment. A couple of leather upholstered benches are placed at the window while in the corner stands a white armchair. Up on the mezzanine is a nice little cosy seating area with a collection o fat and design books as well as an honesty bar and tea and coffee facilities. In the morning a simple continental breakfast is offered here to those without time to head down to the breakfast room with complimentary pastries and juices. The space is a great place to relax during the day or to wait for a late flight, for example.

    In terms of the hotel's public space that is about it apart from the gorgeous-smelling corridors which are both light and spacious. With only a few rooms on each floor and good number indications, finding your room is simple. The hotel is in an excellent condition and its staff is both personable and helpful. Guests have access to complimentary wifi throughout the hotel.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    As well as the mezzanine above the lobby area, Le Pradey does have a full service breakfast room in the basement of the hotel. Under the vaulted stone ceiling is a rustic set up of tables and chairs and crockery display cabinets in a nod towards the French region of Auvergne. The room is decorated with spotlights, fairy lights and flowers while on the tables the sugar, jams and butter are presented on a sheet of slate. A modest continental buffet is laid out to one side of the room although hot eggs are also available upon request. Guests will often see the hotel's director down here to have a chat with them and help out with anything she can. A nice personal touch!

    To know

    The hotel is an independent property which opened in mid-October 2011. It was designed by Vincent Bastie who already has around 60 other Parisian hotels to his name. Vincent also designed the four Hermès suites on the fifth floor of the hotel. Another well known Parisian designer, Chantal Thomass contributed to the hotel's inventory with two stunning suites. The materials used throughout the hotel, such as zinc, stone, oak and concrete are supposed to mirror those found in the city itself. The hotel works as much as possible with its neighbours on the road - all the flowers and chocolates come from businesses on rue St. Roch.

      One of our firm favourites, the Régina luxury hotel wins hands down for style and character. In a superb location, it sits between the Louvre and the Jardins des Tuileries. The Régina exudes Art Nouveau charm like no other hotel in Paris taking the guests back in time to the early 1900s. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is surprisingly unpretentious and relaxed. Guests should not be surprised to run into film crews or Chanel convoys headed by Mr Lagerfeld himself!

      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.
