Cross the Champs-Elysées, pass Saint-Philippe-du-Roule and on a small hidden street, you’ll find Hotel Daniel. Inside is a meeting of the East and West; Kazakh carpets, Chinese wallpaper, Syrian trinkets, Turkish silver platters, ebony countertops – a mix of styles which come together harmoniously in this elegant cocoon.
The 36 rooms are styled on 18th century Parisian apartments and a special mention has to go to the sublime views of the Eiffel Tower from certain suites. You will struggle to pull yourself away from such comfortable rooms but it’s totally worth it for the afternoon tea. Ensconced on one of the classic armchairs, just choose which region of the world you want to visit via your tastebuds. Cakes and tea are accompanied by a three different hour glasses to customise and perfect the strength of your infusion. All you have to do is remove the tea leaves when the sand has run clean. The well-stocked bar is well worth a visit too – intimate and cosy, this is a great spot for a date.
