Flying to Paris and don’t know where to stay overnight? Do you want a luxury hotel? We have created a list of such hotels especially for you! Find your dream Parisian accommodation.
In a nutshell, the Ritz Hotel is about tradition, glamour, intrigue, betrayals, cuisine and drinks.
It is also about extraordinary guests and stories.
The hotel opened on 6 June 1898. It was the first hotel to install bathtubs and the first where every room had electricity. Over the years it has hosted many distinguished guests including: Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill, Rudolf Valentino, Audrey Hepburn, Maria Callas, Sophia Loren as well as kings and princes from around the world. It was where Princess Diana had her last dinner.
Coco Chanel lived there for almost 30 years, until her death in 1971 – if anyone would like to rent her flat, it is possible, but for about €7,000 per night.
The hotel’s famous kitchen, which is manned by a total of 80 chefs, should also be mentioned, as should the no less famous hotel bar, where Colin Field – twice voted the world’s best bartender by Forbes magazine – has worked continuously since 1973. The bar is named after Hemingway for good reason – before the war, the writer often entertained here with his lover, Marlene Dietich.
Hotel de Crillon
Another historic and luxurious Paris hotel that was established in 1909, in a building dating back to 1758. Located at the foot of the Champs-Élysées, it witnessed the reign of two French kings, the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon’s Empire.
It is one of the world’s oldest luxury hotels! All the suites are styled in the Louis XV era – crystal chandeliers, marble, artwork and opulence even dripping down the walls.
It always becomes the site of a special photo shoot after the Miss France elections, and it also accompanied French footballers who celebrated winning the World Cup trophy here in 1998.
Every year, the famous Debutante Ball is also held here, where young girls from “good homes” make their debut in the circles of the cream of society.
The Four Seasons George V
The Four Seasons George V, one of the most famous palaces in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, is regularly cited or considered the best hotel in the world in various rankings.
We must say that the hotel has many strengths: hyper-luxurious Louis XVI-style rooms decorated by Pierre-Yves Rochon, a magnificent spa centre with a small pool (9 metres), an exceptional gourmet restaurant – le Cinq d’Eric Briffard – with two Michelin stars, a tea room offering a selection of exceptional baked goods and teas. It has a unique geographical location in the Golden Triangle. Service is exceptional as always at the Four Seasons.
Lovers of classic luxury will be in paradise, the Four Seasons George V.
