A truly old-school and highly-recommended luxury hotel.
A truly old-school and highly-recommended luxury hotel.
At the heart of "Paris by night" in the neighbouring Grands Boulevards district and just a 5-minute walk from Opéra Garnier and a little further from the Grands Magasins district, there is no doubting that the Hôtel Richmond is located in a busy spot. However, as it stands on a street that runs perpendicular to all the hustle and bustle, it provides pleasantly peaceful surroundings. The surrounding area, which is home to a great many shops, bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres, is very lively but pretty safe, thanks to a high police presence. The closest metro station is Richelieu-Drouot.
The guest rooms here are the largest in the area, so much so that they are more like small apartments or suites. Having said that, the suites available here are yet larger still and have their own lounge areas, complete with two large French windows letting in plenty of natural light and, when open, unobstructed views from their small balconies. The decor is admittedly not the most recent, but the rooms are, on the whole, well-appointed. Amenities include individual air-conditioning, a refrigerator, a free mini safe and charged Wi-Fi Internet access but there is no room service. The bathroom, too, is large and comes with a bathtub, as do most of the rooms. The rates here are reasonable, as is what they charge for breakfast. Highly-recommended.
The dizzy heights of the hotel's carved-stone facade certainly look impressive from the pavement, its majestic aura seemingly bringing the sculpted lions to life. The inside doesn't disappoint, either. Beyond the large reception desk lies the prestigious lounge area, complete with stained glass window-style ceiling. The surroundings here are certainly spacious, almost intimidatingly so, and the scale of the hotel is heavily felt. It really is surprising to see that it listed in this category, as the Richmond is more like a small luxury hotel, with a warm ambience and a strong feeling of a family-run establishment.
A historical address offering the added bonus of good value for money.
The Golden Tulip Hôtel de Noailles is a magnificently intimate and sophisticated establishment full of chic and original designer features, for example the bathrooms that open onto the bedrooms. The flowery inner patio and sunny terraces and balconies only add to its attraction.
A first-rate hotel in a vibrant part of the city.
The Eiffel-style Banke Hôtel, designed by architects Paul Friesse and Cassien Bernard, opened in April 2009 and is housed in a wonderful building dating back to the early 20th century and which was once home to the headquarters of the CCF bank.
This hotel is modern but the rates it proposes are excessive.
This is quite a charming little hotel, although not the cheapest in the area.
The Radisson Blu Ambassador Opéra Hotel is a 4 star hotel offering good value for money in an excellent location in the French capital. Its elegant, contemporary design will appeal to business guests and tourists alike. The advantage of this hotel is definitely its excellent restaurant, 16 Hausmann, whose reputation is second to none. For a peaceful stay in Paris, look no further, this is the address you need.
The Chess Hotel is a new establishment in the Opéra area of Paris. It offers high-quality services and a warm welcome. The chic and sober decoration will please most guests.
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 palace to open its doors on 1 August 2014. The French chic and sophistication goes perfectly with the Asian elegance in the magnificent building dating from 1908. This is the Peninsula Group's first hotel to open in France but also in Europe.
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.
It took five Haussmanian buildings to bring the Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme into existence, and it is the first luxury hotel in Paris to be designed in a contemporary fashion. Comfort, style and impeccable service all come together here in a younger, more modern setting.
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.
Confidentiality is the order of the day at this very upmarket establishment, perfect for VIPs looking for a little discretion, and private events are also held here.
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.
