Amy Adejokun Section editor

This is a stunning hotel located in a historical district. Its proximity to la Concorde and les Tuileries is a major asset and the hotel is a good starting point to enjoy a beautiful stroll through the gardens that will take you to the nicest monuments in Paris. The Richepanse has a lot of character as it is one of the rare Art Déco hotels of the capital. It is worth your while to spend some time examining the details of the rooms' interior decor.

    Location 7.51 /10

    16/20
    Ideally located in the 1st arrondissement, the Richepanse is surrounded by the magnificent Tuileries gardens, place de la Concorde and place Vendôme. A short walk will take you to Paris' prettiest areas and monuments. The Opera, the Louvre and the Champs Elysées are only a few minutes away on foot. This is the very heart of all that is chic and historical in Paris, surrounded by some of the most impressive buildings. From Madelaine, Concorde and Auber there are several underground and RER (French express train) lines with connections to all the sights in Paris. This is therefore the ideal starting place to discover Paris.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel's marked Art Déco identity makes it stand out from the other establishments of the Best Western brand. The rooms are crammed with detail and art pieces from the Art Déco movement. Rounded mirrors, metal inlays with floral patterns in the bed heads, furniture that mixes curved and straight lines, both gentle and hard, and smoothed-down whitewashed walls are the most marked elements of the Art Déco trend. Among the many particularities of the establishment, details such as the sinks in the VIP bathrooms, which come in the shape of a snail's shell, are typical of the Art Déco movement. Staying here is therefore like travelling into another dimension. The highly original interior also boasts several pieces of modern artwork. The hotel offers four accommodation categories, from the classical rooms to the suites (the latter are on the 6th floor). The suites include a sitting-room area with a convertible sofa-bed and they can sleep a maximum of four guests. Only the standard rooms don't have bathrobes, but all the rooms are fitted with a bathtub. Broadly speaking, the rooms are all decorated in a similar vein with beige and caramel tones. The TV has many international channels, including a movie channel with films in their original language. A courtesy platter awaits guests in their rooms.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Best Western Opera Richepanse is not just another anonymous franchise hotel. For those who are interested in history and anecdotes, this establishment has a lot to offer. Towards the end of the 19th century, a frequent guest was the Russian composer Tchaïkovski. A soon as you walk in, the first thing to welcome you is a sculpture that occupies most of the entrance hall. It was made by the illustrious sculptor, Jean-Batiste Carpeaux, better known for his work on the façade of Opéra Garnier, and his famous sculpture called "Danse". The Richepanse is a hotel that mixes styles and eras. Historically, it dates from the 17th century, but its interior is completely Art Déco, something that the numerous details in the rooms will not let you forget. The hotel is rather small with only 38 rooms. The breakfast room occupies a beautiful cellar with vaulted ceilings. There is a small business corner opposite the reception desk. There is no access for disabled guests, and small dogs are welcome.

    To know

    The Richepanse is located in a prestigious area in the heart of Paris. Its foundations date from the 17th century and the hotel was built on an ancient convent that was pulled down in 1807. It has been a hotel ever since.

      • Location 7.11

      In a part of Paris bristling with Palaces and some of the most grandiose and reputed hotels in the world, the Hôtel Cambon is a bit of an exception. It is a small hotel, more intimate and personal than its prestigious neighbours on Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde and rue de Rivoli. The originality of the artistic decor that features throughout is a winner, with contemporary and more classic paintings hung on all the walls and in all the rooms.

      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.

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.
