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.
Paris offers an endless amount of sumptuous rooms in a multitude of mind-blowing hotels, so making a decision on where to rest your head is no mean feat. And it's not just the five-star addresses that offer the crème de la crème of hospitality, there are plenty of four stars too. Comfortable, cosy, luxurious; expect a range of prices from the reasonable to the downright eyewatering.
These are our very favourite luxury hotels, because if you're going to stay in one of the most chic cities in world, your hotel might as well match. Welcome to the good life.
