This former grande dame of Paris was first built in 1910 and has evolved over the decades from Art Nouveau grandeur to Art Deco coolness. A 2018 renovation breathed new life into the hotel — the Left Bank’s only five-star luxury hotel — lovingly peeling back the layers to release its original personality. The atmosphere is now classically elegant, with a thriving restaurant (yes, Sylvie went on a date here at Emily in Paris) and a gorgeous bar with frequent live music. The eternal charm of the hotel is indicated by its name, Lutetia, the old name of the Gallic colony which would later become Paris.

The Plaza Atheneé has long been considered one of the most emblematic hotels in Paris. It is of course the hotel visited by Carrie in the last episodes of sex and the city, and has, for years, been privy to that legendary view of the Eiffel Tower that — no matter how much we like to pretend to be cool — will always force a slight squeal from our lips. The hotel is, understandably, more than its famous clientele, but let’s be clear, celebrity spotting here is a no-brainer. It boasts a sublime address, excellent cuisine and some of the most comfortable rooms in town. It was also the favorite hotel of the legendary Christian Dior, whose flagship store you will still find opposite.

This hotel designed by Philippe Starck is a true marvel of imagination, drawing its decorative inspiration from the countries of the South. Since its opening in 2018, it has established itself in the capital as one of the coolest places in Paris; nestled in the chic and opulent 16th arrondissement, it stands at a distance from the hustle and bustle of the city center while retaining its enviable view of the Eiffel Tower from its unmissable bar-terrace. On top of all that, did we mention there’s a pool in the basement?

We’ll be honest, this place got us with the words ‘Dior Spa’. But Cheval Blanc is not limited to the most fashionable of well-being offers. For starters, there’s its enviable location, right on the banks of the Seine, seconds from the Art Nouveau luxury department store La Samaritaine, a short walk from the Louvre and minutes from the Marais – the best spot in Paris for bars. and the atmosphere.

One of Paris’ most popular hotels (Le Saint) has had a facelift. The renamed Pavillon Faubourg Saint Germain reopened its doors in early April in its new form of boutique jewel, imagined by Didier Benderli. It has 47 individually appointed rooms and suites, a new restaurant by award-winning chef Thibault Sombardier, a magnificent cocktail bar and a heavenly spa. Located in historic Saint Germain, it incorporates the entertaining history of its venue as well as a delightful nod to illustrious guests like beloved writer James Joyce, who completed his opus Ulysses while staying in the property at the beginning of the 20th century.

Could this be the best decorated hotel in Paris? He is certainly the only one who can boast of having Luke Edward Hall as a creative force. As you’d expect from Hall, it’s a maximalist haven of quirky mix-and-matches, chic stripes, and primary hues, all of which combine to create a wonderfully zany interior worthy of a Wes Anderson hotel. This lovely boutique space is nestled between – as you might have guessed – Paris’ two main train stations, Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est, which means it’s both extremely convenient and in one of the capital’s most thriving nightlife spots.
