Amy Adejokun Section editor

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!

    Location 7.95 /10

    The Régina is right in the heart of the capital in the much sought-after 1st district. The Louvre is situated to the left of the hotel and the Jardin des Tuileries straight ahead. In the Jardin you will find the popular contemporary art exhibition venue, Jeu de Paume and the Orangerie, where Monet's Water Lilies dazzle the public. Cross the Jardin des Tuileries and find yourself wandering along the Seine's stunning quays. Right up by Place de la Concorde; admire the Ferris wheel that goes up around Christmas, marking the start of the Champs Elysées. A short walk from Rue de Rivoli, where you will find the usual clothes stores (H&M, Zara, Mango...) and a short walk away from the very exclusive boutiques of Rue Saint Honoré. With the choice of things to do and the real buzz of Paris, night and day, this is the number one area to stay in all year round.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The Régina boasts 120 stunning rooms of varying styles. A ?classic' room will set you back 375 Euros (£324), a 'superior' room tariff is set at 450 Euros (£389) and 515 Euros (£445) for a ?deluxe' - prices are subject to change. The two beautiful presidential suites are also for rent at 990 Euros (£858) with original 16th century tapestry hanging from the ceiling down to the floors on the wall opposite the four-poster bed. The two rooms and their remarkable art deco bathrooms can be linked by a door that is locked most of the time and are often rented out for fashion photo shoots. The sixth floor, which used to be the maid's headquarters, is said to be haunted. The small cosy attic rooms have recently been renovated and made a little more contemporary whilst retaining something of the hotel's magic; the rooms are all different and may boast a red lacquered wall and a printed bedspread depicting colonial scenes. Although not always very generous in size, (ranging from 15m²-60m²) the rooms are kitted out appropriately with flat screen televisions, hair dryers, telephones, safes, mini-bars and various television channels including BBC World and CNN, as well as Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and German channels. The rooms have balconies which give out onto Paris as it is in the films, although noisy. When it comes to the view, very few rooms are a letdown, as 60% overlook the Jardins des Tuileries or the Louvre and 40% give out onto a small interior garden. All rooms have double glazing, so little exterior traffic is heard; however, once the windows are open, the silence is broken as a little of Paris' bustle climbs through the window into the room. The bathrooms, whether with stained glass on the ceilings or decked out entirely in marble, have all the mod-coms one expects in such a high-class hotel such as heated toilets seats of course! The beauty products are from renowned French brand, Fragonard. All the rooms, whichever one you choose, are extremely comfortable with plush bed linen and new upholstery. Choose an attic room for a more contemporary Parisian feel or a classic room, decked out in thick carpets and rugs, and refined Art Nouveau furniture and heavy drapes. When making a booking, a style of room should be mentioned as they do vary greatly between contemporary chic and kingly 1900s design. Check-in 3pm/check-out midday.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    The hotel's stone façade adorned with gold lettering is discreetly charming. Inside, the Régina Hotel is nothing short of absolutely stunning. Contemporary design is well at bay here among the fine woodwork of the opulent lobby. There is a clear eye for detail and strong focus on art and antiques, which strengthens the hotel's particular atmosphere; however its jovial staff prevents it from falling into the 'stuffy' category. Once you step through the wooden revolving doors and you stand in the expansive high-ceilinged lobby, it can feel a little daunting, but take the time to look around and take it the surroundings. You are in a 1900 Parisian film, a feeling that leaves you floating to the polished oak reception desk in no time. The hotel has a 'lived in' feel to it; as soon as the threshold is crossed, the 110 year history of the hotel falls upon you and settles around you, immersing the guest, pulling the guest back in time, to the heart of the Belle Époque. The decoration is so sought after that a cheeky guest managed to sneak out a little more than a bathrobe, and stole an original painting from a corridor. Talking of which, the long, large corridors remind one of a museum rather than a hotel, lined with artworks, antiques and original 19th century fine green tiles. The entire hotel breathes Parisian history and elegance with its rather resplendent surroundings. Step into the magic of 19th century Paris...sit in the lobby under the chandeliers, listening to the multitude of nationalities being manifested over the reception desk, admire the oak grand piano, exchange a smile with the bell boys and drift away to pre-World War I noble Paris.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The food is very simple. Nothing fancy and nothing to write home about, and the Régina does not pretend otherwise. What is however a delight, is the atmosphere of the bar and restaurant. Open for breakfast from 7am-10am and til 11am on Sundays and in the afternoons from noon to 10pm, the English Bar and 'Club Lounge' welcomes guests within its sumptuous walls into an atmosphere reminiscent of Victorian England. Here the food is very simple ranging from French onion soup to Caesar salad, to lamb fillet. Guests also have the choice to regenerate in the Régina Garden Courtyard. Pleasant in the summer, this little verdant oasis in the centre of Paris makes for a good break from the bustle. For colder days, the courtyard is attached to a lovely airy dining room with a carpet that brings that outdoors inside (and also which reminds one of sixties England with its flowers motifs). Here the menu is the same as in the Club Lounge. Prices range from 12 Euros for a starter to 32 Euros for the 'Plat du Jour'. For those gloomy days which should be spent in bed admiring the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries, the Régina provides 24-hour room service. The menu is in the services directory in each room and prices are a little dearer than in the Club Lounge or Garden Courtyard. (Hot dishes from the menu are served only until 10pm, so guests should be aware of this when placing an order).

    To know

    The stunning Régina hotel is a true time warp, so be prepared to step into the year 1900, when the hotel first opened and shed all 21st century conceptions...The hotel stands tall and elegant on Place des Pyramides, named after Napoleonic victory in the battle of the Pyramids in 1798. The hotel used to be the Louvre Palace stables before being converted into its present function. The special aspect of the hotel is that together with the Raphael Hotel (16th district Paris), and the recently-reopened Majestic, also in the 16th district, has been family-owned for four generations. The group was created by Leonard Taubert and is now headed by his granddaughter, Ms Françoise Bavarez. The staff turnover is very low; Mrs Gourdès, our host, for example, has been at the Régina Hotel for 20 years now. This makes the Régina Hotel experience more intimate and more 'Parisian' than a stay in other more modern Parisian hotels. The hotel's infamous reputation for its lavish style brings a string of rich, famous and talented through its revolving doors, such as Karl Lagerfeld during Chanel photo shoots. Over 100 films have been shot at the Régina is the last 30 years. There are lots of 'Art Nouveau gimmicks' that are popular with guests, such as the letterbox system. All six floors have a letterbox slot for guests' post. The post can be seen as it is dropped in and falls all the way through all floors and finally reached reception. Another fact worth noting, which maintains the high standards of service, is that the head concierge is a member of the prestigious concierge association, Clefs d'Or. The concierge can organise just about anything, so if you do ask, you probably will get!

      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.

      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 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.

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.
