A few strides from the Champs-Élysées, the Royal Monceau – Raffles is one of the most popular hotels in the capital. Here, art comes from all over with a unique concierge art service, a contemporary art gallery and many works of all kinds that punctuate the decor by Philippe Starck. For the art of living: a 1,500 square metre spa with the soft accents of celestial paradise, with one of the largest hotel swimming pools in Paris, and a 99-seat private cinema. To support the creative and relaxed spirit of the place, two restaurants serve dishes: Matsuhisa for Japanese-Peruvian cuisine, and Michelen starred restaurant, Il Carpaccio, for Italian gastronomy. Special mention for the Sunday brunch, its huge buffet and Pierre Hermé pastries.
Five-star hotels rarely do half measures in Paris – and always promise delirious and haute couture experiences. Whether you have something to celebrate, someone to treat or just a lot of cash money to spend, we have selected the most amazing hotels in this category for you – and the level is (very) high.
On the menu: sleep among works of art between centuries-old walls, eat in starred restaurants and toast under the stars on high-end rooftops and get pampered in spas a hundred times grander than your home... In short, you won't have to count the stars for too long to fall asleep peacefully. We'd say up to five max.
