France’s city of love has some of the most luxurious hotels with fantastic views. Here are some of the best:
Situated in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, the Radisson Blu is close to the Trocadero and offers astounding views of the infamous Eiffel Tower. Relatively small for a chain hotel, the hotel has 38 uber cool rooms that combine comfort and style with a convenient crash pad. There is a wellness centre that has a swimming pool with a wave machine and also a hammam. Mediterranean cuisine is served in the Metropolitan restaurant whilst the piece de resistance can be found at the hotel Lounge bar, which has wonderful views of the city.
Hotel de Banville
Hotel de Banville’s location is slightly off the beaten track in terms of wandering Parisian streets yet it is still within walking distance of Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. The art deco façade leads to some truly contemporary design inside the hotel from the quirky lobby to the uber chic rooms. Close to local amenities that offer a truly French experience, the hotel is ideal for those looking for a bit of quiet away from the touristy bustle. For the real wow factor, book into Amelie’s room and enjoy coffee and croissants on the terrace with the Eiffel tower, Sacre Coeur and Arc de Triomphe in the background. Parfait.
This five-star luxury hotel in Paris is part of the Dorchester Hotel Collection. Beautiful flowers adorn ornate windows at the front of the hotel creating a warm and inviting façade. Close to the main shopping street of the Champs Elysees the Plaza Athenee has long been a favorite of the rich and famous and has well and having truly established itself over the years as a classic Parisian hotel. Dine in the hotel restaurant, Alain Ducasse Restaurant, at the Plaza Athenee where guests can dine on a delectable range of French cuisines.
Hotel Eiffel Seine
Nestled within the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, the Hotel Eiffel Seine couldn’t be any better located for first time visitors to Paris wanting to see the sights. A renovated Art Nouveau boutique style hotel. Monochrome themes sit beside flashes of red which add a warmth to the décor and comfortable rooms offer a much needed home from home. The hotel website offers great advice on exploring the neighbourhood by foot and the buffet breakfast should provide more than enough energy to do so.
Les Jardins d’Eiffel
Les Jardins d’Eiffel is a three-star hotel located close to the Invalids and Eiffel Tower. Most of the 80 rooms have balconies or terraces and stunning views of the infamous landmark. There is a quiet courtyard where guests can escape the frantic French streets and rest tired feet after hard days exploring the city. The buffet breakfast is complementary and can be served in the garden on days when the weather permits.
