After six years of building breathless buzz, this posh property on Paris’s swanky Avenue Kléber finally opened its gilded doors to the world in April 2015. The look is classic fin-de-siècle Parisian architecture, with mansard roofs, ornate stonework and sweeping views from terraces of some of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. This late 19th-century Haussmann building, which once housed one of Paris’s “grands hotels,” is now home to 200 spectacular rooms decked out in tasteful color schemes of cream and gray, accented with lashings of marble, wood paneling and gold leaf. Head to the rooftop L’Oiseau restaurant, located beneath a glass atrium on the sixth floor, for truly breathtaking views of the skyline (yep, that’s the Eiffel Tower just over there). After a day out seeing the town — preferably from the plush back seat of one of the hotel’s chauffeured vehicles, which include a 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, a fleet of BMW 7 Series sedans and several Mini Coopers — relax and recharge in the spa with a city detox facial or deep muscle massage followed by a dip in the 65-foot pool.
In the Area
Forget your bohemian Left Bank leanings for the time being: you’re on the Rive Droite now, so make the most of your tony surrounds. Skip the crowds jostling for a glimpse of the Mona Lisa and instead sign up for a fascinating “Treasure Hunt” of the Louvre with THATLou, during which you’ll search for various clues around the museum, each tailored to a specific theme. Next, get thee to the sweet-smelling Ex Nihilo, a fancy purveyor of perfumes, candles and other delicious things on Rue St. Honoré — they’ll even let you customize your very own scent. Bypass the lines at perpetually mobbed Le Chateaubriand — star chef Iñaki Aizpitarte’s award-winning nouveau bistro on Ave de Parmentier — for his more casual sister restaurant Le Dauphin next door, where you’ll get a taste of tapas Paris-style.
How to Get There
Great experience staying here. Hotel staff was very courteous and accommodating. Location of the hotel was good as well. The hotel bar was small but nice for casual business meetings. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean and updated.
We had an amazing and outstanding stay at peninsula Paris. The staff was very friendly and provided exceptional service. They noticed that I was on honeymoon with my husband and. They gave us a surprise cake, a complimentary bottle of champagne and a very nice card. Our suite was impeccable and spacious, and breakfast was superb. It was few minutes walk to tourist attractions, shopping places and restaurant. Would definitely stay again!
It’s a beautiful hotel don’t get me wrong however for the price you pay you definitely do NOT get the service you deserve. Go to Four Seasons George V or Plaza Athenee instead. Some staff just seem like they can’t be bothered. But what really ticked me off was the doormen/bellboys seeing me get out of the car with paper bags and in need of help but they turned to continue talking to one another.
It is a luxury hotel with very good facilities and has a very good location but service really dissappointed us. First of all, although we were an official delegation and offered to pay in cash, front desk made us wait long time for the keys. Second we requested an early breakfast to our rooms and paid for 5 people in advance (only 3 of us ordered it at the end with no refund demand) we couldn't have our breakfast because they told it we had to pay (again after that they told us that there was a misunderstanding but we it was to late to have our breakfasts as we had to leave for the airport. (They prepared take away coffee+croissant for me but of course it was not worth +250 euros for 5 persons breakfast price)
Returning again to my favorite hotel for my birthday eight nights in April 2018.
This is my third stay at this wonderful hotel.
The hotel again is a 10 for 10 never anything you ask for they are ready to help.
The rooms,restaurants,and the staff are the best in the industry first class from check-in
till time to head back home.
The suite was first class as well as the room service and housekeeping.
My birthday dinner at L Oiseau Blanc was very special and the chef made a very special dinner for me.
LILI and Le Lobby was also wonderful for great dinners and the best service.
The concierge Harold is always ready for any requests and always knows the best local non tourists restaurants and all the best high end restaurants.
The whole concierge staff is just really great.
The managers and front desk staff are 100% THE BEST OF ANY HOTELS IN EUROPE.
Geoffrey Lecomte ( Director of guest services) is the best in just getting correct room and being sure your stay is just perfect. Always checking to be sure everyday is perfect.
Justine Silvant at reception is alway ready to help and always with a big smile.
The spa is really just 1st class with a great staff and so relaxing.
Again this is the best of the best in a 5 stars plus hotel. Many hotels could get real lessons from the staff at the Peninsula Paris. We will returning very soon.
