Behind a wonderful Haussmann façade, a five-minute walk from Paris’s Madeleine church, this petite retreat is a thoroughly modern five-star boutique. From the marble lobby, which is decorated with an impressive floral display, to the glass-roofed restaurant to the light-flooded guestrooms, the look is fresh and contemporary.
Bed and Bath
Designed by Italian architect Aldo Riva, the 86 guestrooms are decked out in a palette of brown, taupe and ecru, and light wood wall panels behind the beds set off crisp white bed linens. The furnishings are sparse but practical, with a functional desk and ample closet space. The marble bathrooms come with twin sinks, bathtubs, rainfall showers and lavish organic accessories by Pharmacopia.
On the ground floor, La Chinoiserie restaurant (and cocktail bar) is topped by a glass roof from the workshop of Gustave Eiffel. The room is decorated with subtle Asian touches like low-slung lacquered tables, but the menu focuses on seasonal dishes. In contrast to the luminosity of the restaurant, the street-facing Café M is a cozy spot overlooking Boulevard Malesherbes. Down in the basement there’s a small fitness room, a sauna and a relaxation room.
In the Area
It’s a five-minute walk to the church of La Madeleine, which hosts free classical and organ music concerts, and the beautiful St. Augustin. Also nearby, the Paris Opera House offers a wonderful lineup of ballet as well as opera. Art enthusiasts should duck into the Tuileries Gardens and visit the intimate Orangerie museum, where Monet’s Water Lilies are on permanent show. For those who fancy a spot of shopping, don’t miss the designer boutiques on Rue Saint-Honoré, from Hermès to Saint Laurent to Colette, and the hotel is located between Galeries Lafayettes and the Champs-Elysées.
How to Get There
Tried this Hyatt for the first time, and loved the location, everything is walking distance to museums, shopping and restaurants. Suppose being October, it was perfect walk-about weather. Very convenient. Staff on all levels were warm, professional, friendly and courteous and helpful. My room was a King Premier Room, clean and spacious, great gym too, definitely coming back again.
From the check in to check out we had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable. Great location, close to many attractions in Paris. We have been to Paris many times and have stayed at different hotels. This was one of the best.
Disappointing service given the price. Last time I stayed there they gave me the wrong room keys and I found a couple in my room while checking in. This time the shower didn’t work properly and the reception nor room service didn’t pick up the phone. I had to go down to order my breakfast at the reception
