Our Top 5 Hotels in Paris: from The Peninsula Paris to the Hôtel Bachaumont

Paris is always a good idea, and we’re more than happy that the city is a main destination on our itinerary (for job-related reasons, of course). Paris is a city that places a high value on aesthetics and – as interior design pertains to good taste – there are a lot of hotels to be found here that are worth recommending. Here, we present a quick roundup of our favorite spots!

1. The Peninsula Paris

It’s only been two years since the Peninsula opened its door in a historical Belle Époque building located near the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe. However, the luxury hotel in the 16th arrondissement has already established itself as a big player and stuns its guests with its splendid interior and first-class service. The highlight is the 360° view from its glassed-in rooftop restaurant, L’Oiseau Blanc.

2. Hôtel Bachaumont

A new addition to Veronika’s favorites list is the Hôtel Bachaumont. It opened just recently on its namesake street – Rue Bachaumont – a low-traffic location right across from the Jalou Media publishing house. You’ll also find Nose, a boutique beauty shop, and a Christophe Robin salon on the street. You could say that good design is the main focus here: the interior was decorated by Dorothée Meilichzon, a highly praised up-and-coming talent who was also behind Hotel Pigalle and Hotel Panache.

3. Le Pigalle

At first glance, Le Pigalle’s premises may remind you of a hip, metropolitan loft rather than a classic hotel – and that’s hardly surprising since creativity is at the heart of the brand philosophy of the Design Hotels group. It all comes down to the details: vintage mid-century modern furniture as far as the eye can see and a salon-style hanging of original art prints make for a pleasant ambiance. Located at the heart of Montmartre, Le Pigalle combines the charm of the neighborhood with metropolitan coolness and is the perfect getaway for guests who like to feel at home even while traveling.

4. Ritz Paris

Imperative in our little roundup: the Ritz Paris. In June 2016, this hotel classic was reopened in all its glory – and already served at the start of that week as the backdrop of Chanel’s opulent Métiers d’Art show.

The stately suites exude the charm of a bygone era, and the Hemingway Bar alone is worth a visit. Even today, the Ritz remains a place of pilgrimage for stars and renowned artists and we cannot think of a place that has a better selection of cocktails or more entertaining waiters.

5. Hôtel Panache

Still quite new, but all the more promising for it, is Hotel Panache. It opened just this summer in the heart of the 9th arrondissement, between Montmartre and the Grands Boulevards. The owners, Adrian and Julie Gloaguen, also own the wonderful Hotel Paradis, and their new hotel certainly won’t be an insider secret for long.

Dorothée Meilichzon – also the designer behind Hotel Bauchamont and Le Pigalle – presents an exciting mix of contemporary style and Parisian elegance. What is especially charming is the local focus: from the chocolate to the stationary, many of the products available in-house were created by regional artisans.
