L'Hôtel

icon-location-pin Saint-Germain-des-Prés

L’Hotel is a stone’s throw from the Seine and is steeped in history. It was here, on 13 rue des Beaux-Arts that Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau once frolicked, where Serge Gainsbourg played "Je t'aime moi non plus" for the first time and where Oscar Wilde lived for two years before he died. There are 20 rooms, four on each floor, a restaurant (which has kept its Michelin star since 2006), a cosy bar and an even cosier pool beneath the arches that can be rented out privately to guests by the hour.

Hotel The Peninsula Paris

icon-location-pin Chaillot

This is possibly the most luxurious hotel in Paris. Owned by The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotel company and opened in 2014 and the creators really pushed the boat out to make this a five-star stunner. Upon entering you will pass an imposing pair of lions that lead you into the epic Versailles-esque hall; all decked out in handmade crystal glass, sophisticated mouldings, marble and woodwork. Everything is grand and infinitely beautiful.

Hôtel Providence

icon-location-pin Strasbourg-Saint-Denis

An uber chic yet down-to-earth hotel in eastern Paris. Pierre Moussié – proprietor of Chez Jeannette, Le Mansart and Le Sans Souci – has set up this eighteen-room hotel in Strasbourg Saint Denis, just opposite the Splendid and Petit-Saint-Martin theatres on a road which is astonishingly calm considering the neighbourhood’s night owl reputation. The décor is impeccable both inside and out, and the building dates back to 1850 with beautiful, charming mouldings.

Grand Hôtel Du Palais Royal

icon-location-pin Louvre

Grand townhouse meets opulent palace in this five-star wonder. Think fairy-tale staircases and classic facades. Plus, the view from the tall windows is to die for – gaze out over the City of Lights, from Sacré-Coeur to the Eiffel Tower, via the Tour Montparnasse and the Haussmannian roofs. In the rooms and suites, linen, wood, marble and period furniture make everything the height of comfort.

Pershing Hall

icon-location-pin Champs-Elysées

While there is no shortage of high-end hotels in the famous Golden Triangle of Paris – a bastion of French wealth, luxury and fashion – some will always stand out from the crowd. The prestigious Pershing Hall is a prime example. Located between Avenue George V and the Champs-Elysées, the building is steeped in history.

Le Narcisse Blanc & Spa

icon-location-pin Invalides

There’s no shortage of admiration-worthy places in Paris – Tour Montparnasse and the Sacré Coeur to name but a few. Majestically located in between the Eiffel tower and Les Invalides, the Narcisse Blanc Hotel-Spa watches the city through its windows, but remains far from the hustle and bustle of the city, in absolute calm. Le Narcisse Blanc is modelled after Cléo de Mérode, the photo icon of the 20th century, a dancer and muse (immortalised by Nadar, Degas or even Proust) who led a mysterious life.

Hôtel Vernet

Hidden between the Golden Triangle and Place de l'Etoile, Hotel Vernet has maintained its splendour and elegance for almost a hundred years. The entrance and elevator are a vision of wood and glass, surrounded by stunning stained glass windows. The corridor to the rooms is bright with light carpets and graphic-style furniture – this is tasteful luxury at its best. The apartments are very zen, with Carrara marble basins, glass mosaics and brass fittings.

MGallery Molitor

icon-location-pin 16e arrondissement

The opening of the MGallery Molitor made quite a splash. The famous Art Deco swimming pool was defunct for twenty years after closing its doors in 1989. However, after two years of colossal work, the mythical establishment of the 16th arrondissement has reincarnated as a luxurious complex complete with five star hotel, restaurant and spa. The redevelopment of this listed heritage site by the group MGallery has created a something of a stir.

Hôtel Costes

icon-location-pin 1er arrondissement

The city’s best hotels are easy to find, known to Parisians and tourists alike, they set off a frisson whenever their names are uttered. Hotel Costes is a prime example; in the middle of the famous rue Saint-Honoré, close to Concorde and the Jardin des Tuileries, it offers one of the capital’s trendiest, most elegant stays – a marvel of subdued lighting and powdery velvet drapings.
