French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has successfully blended Napoleonic elegance and understated chinoiserie in this 1896 limestone mansion, Shangri-La’s first European hotel. The hand-gilded paneling and lavish use of marble are reminders that much of the building is classified as a French historical monument. From liveried doormen to crystal chandeliers and woven silk wallpaper, you’ll either love or hate the opulence, but there is no faulting the standard of comfort. The service is impeccable and discreet, and the gold and ecru guestrooms are kitted out with the latest technological amenities (marble bathrooms with underfloor heating, TV screens embedded in the mirrors). Take a soak in your bathtub and watch the sparkling lights illuminate the Eiffel Tower at night, or better still, have breakfast on your balcony and watch boats idle up the Seine (from the Eiffel Premier Rooms and Suites). Three top restaurants (including the Michelin-starred L’Abeille and Shang Palace), an Empire-style cocktail bar and a 24/7 fitness room, indoor pool and wellness center offering CARITA body treatments complete this regal retreat.
In the Area
This is a quietly chic residential area, so for the bustle of central Paris you’ll have to hop the nearby metro or take a cab. However, the Champs-Elysées is just a 10-minute stroll across the Seine, and you’re close to many museums. Check out the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, which traces the diverse art movements of the 20th century. Or visit the Musée Baccarat to see its dazzling crystal collection. In the spirit of the Shangri-La, you might opt to improve your knowledge of Asian art with a visit to the Musée des Arts Asiatiques Guimet.
How to Get There
an absolute no good property . in the name of heritage its a fake makeover property, some Napoleon Bonapartes grand child lived there and a bog hype. useless interiors worthless size of rooms. ZERO. Not even worth recommending . useless breakfast one would rather go to a subway nearby which ll be better
This is one of the most amazing hotels I have stayed in. Service, staff are very attentive, breakfast was delicious with so much variety, cocktails in the bar were gorgeous and the jasmine tea was just spot on. Cannot Fault this place.
Location is perfect.
This was my first visit to this hotel! All the staff are lovely and cannot do enough for you! Everything was outstanding, wonderful staff, excellent food and luxurious rooms! Believe me it's a a paradise hotel! Deffinately I will be returning back soon!
Just you need to check everything:
- they lost our branded pens;
- video record was something that we could not use some parts;
- team does not understand what is the reputation.
Hope I will show them within 3 months :)
This hotel is absolutely magical, from the entrance to your room, it's breathtaking!! When we arrived in Paris on the plane we were met at the airport for our pickup in a very nice car. The hotel is beautiful, staff is attending to your every need and the cocktails at the bar are second to none! We will certainly return the next time we are in Paris. I've been to other hotels in Paris but none of them has reached a level of service and quality this one had. Don't be shy to ask the concierge for anything you need, they are very happy to arrange it for you. For example, I've asked for an evening viewing and private tour through the Louvre and they have arranged this for me.
