HOTEL COSTES

 

Decorated by Jacques Garcia in pure Napoleon III style with its multiple red hues, lights, wood panels and gilding, the Costes has cultivated star status for 25 years.

 

 

The restaurant is considered a must visit for lunch by some, for dinner by others, not to mention the bar for long evenings and DJ sets.

 

 

As far as the hotel goes, there is a wealth of choice, from the mini room to the duplex; the Clarins spa and the beautiful pool are adored by the happy few.

HOTEL DE CRILLON

The most beautiful hotel in the world has reopened after four years of restoration. Going beyond its own legend, the Parisian palace paid a wonderful tribute to French fine arts with a project conducted by Cyril Vergniol.

 

 

Occupying a total surface of 16.740 sqm. and seven floors, the hotel comprises lounges, restaurants, rooms and suites, complete with a new pool and a spa facility.

 

 

 

‘Each room was unique, we had to play with moldings and volumes. We were lucky to have benefited from the multiplicity of skills offered by arts and crafts in France, whether it is the passementerie work by Verrier, mirrors with gold leaf patina from Atelier Higué, door handles by Maison Fontaine who specially created the nickel champagne hue for the hotel, silk and wood tapestry by Sabine de Gunzburg’ Cyril Vergniol enumerates.

 

 

 

 

The prestigious suites on the first floor were designed by Karl Lagerfeld who pays a subtle homage to Marie-Antoinette with touches of shagreen, gadrooned marble, wool velvet, handmade embroidery, and bespoke furniture.

 

 

 

Le Bar des Ambassadeurs now occupies the location of the eponymous restaurant decorated by Chahan Minassian who created a very cosy place as he did with Le Jardin d’Hiver teamed up on with landscape architect Louis Benech.

 

 

The gastronomic restaurant, the brasserie, the Cigar lounge and the Cognac shop were designed by Tristan Auer.

 

 

The new spa Sense offers authentic rituals by French brand EviDenS. It is the creation of a lover of beauty who wished to honor the delicate beauty of Japanese women and blends Japanese excellency with French lifestyle.

 

 


‘We imagined the project as if the place still belonged to the Crillon family, with each generation since the 18th century, safeguarding the best to pass on to the next one’, Cyril Vergniol explains.

RITZ PARIS

 

A beautiful legend. The most charming of Palaces. Such is the Ritz Paris. Coco Chanel lived there until she died. Ernest Hemingway was a regular to the point of having the hotel bar named after him. The greatest names have at least once been there.

 

 

The Ritz now offers 71 rooms and 71 suites from 40 to 300 sqm. The most luxurious ones bear the names of illustrious guests such F. Scott Fitzgerald, Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin, Maria Callas, the Duke of Windsor, Ernest Hemingway, Marcel Proust, Colette, Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre, as does the Proust Salon, the perfect place to indulge at tea time.

 

Salon Proust

 

Bar Hemingway

 

The renovation of the Palace has revived the spirit of French style luxury infused by César Ritz at its opening in 1898. The 18th Century and Empire Style signatures have remained intact and adorn walls laden with history.

 

 

Well being seekers will be delighted with the splendid Neoclassical 18 meter-long indoor pool; a for the Chanel spa, it houses 8 treatment rooms and signature treatments, one fitness room with a personal coach and a David Mallett hair salon.

 

 

The outside is noteworthy for the French style gardens and the terrasse Vendôme which turns into a winter garden thanks to its retractable roof.

 

 

At the helm of l’Espadon, a restaurant known by gourmets from across the world are Chef Nicolas Sale, pastry Chef François Perret and Estelle Touzet as Head Sommelier.

HOTEL MONTANA


We love the deliciously subversive, chic and slightly snobbish spirit of Hotel Montana. The revamping is the work of two stars, architect Elisabeth Lemercier and decorator Vincent Darré.

 

 

 

 

It offers six suites -one per floor- six chic and extravagant bubbles which pay homage to surrealism with a color palette borrowed from Le Corbusier and a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture.

HOTEL VERNEUIL

 

There are places, hotels, that make you feel as in a private home, right at the heart of the city but sheltered from the world.

 

 

The Hôtel Verneuil is one of them, a chic, refined and warm 26-room precious shrine. The colours are warm, the furniture antique and objects precious, and there are books we love. Everyone can make the place theirs as well as enjoy a conciergerie service that is very much palace-like, offering a business corner, room service, laundry, restaurant and show bookings, premium ticketing, massages and a baby sitter.

 

 

The hotel is the heart of the hustle and bustle of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and yet it seems like it is situated in its quietest area.

 

 

There are four types of rooms which are equally pretty and comfortable: classic, club, deluxe and adjoining rooms. Here is almost everything you need to know about our new favorite spot, you’ll just have to pay a visit now !

LE SAINT

 

Le Saint is the reunion of three formerly different venues: Hotel Lenox, Hotel Saint Thomas d’Aquin and Hotel Saint Vincent and is situated at the corner of rue du Pré-aux-Clercs. It is a  favourite among consummate germanopratins.


 

 

 

 

Its 54 rooms and suites were decorated by Vincent Bastie with Asian, English and Neoclassical touches, beautiful and heavy fabrics and soft carpeting. They are big and opulent, each of them a chic nest.


 

The Kult, the hotel restaurant is also a cocoon in which you can sip a fabulous cocktail at the bar or taste the cuisine by Guillaume Monnet, already at the helm of l’Affable, one of our favourite addresses.


 

Olivier Lecocq, the master masseur whose name is associated with many a Parisian palace created the spa treatments, which comes with a fitness room. For accomplished sports people who love a good run, the reception team has concocted 3, 6 and 9 mile-long  routes departing from the hotel to combine exercising and discovering Paris.


 

The Saint is about a multiplicity of details which make all the difference: the olfactory design is by Barnabé Fillion, there is a bicycle rental service to explore the area with a snack box and a hammam to relax at the end of the day.

HOTEL RECAMIER

L’HOTEL

 

Of this Directoire house, Jacques Garcia made a charming house, luxurious but intimate and discrete.


 

Each room has its own story which is reflected in a specific decoration. If you like English literature, the room number 16 where Oscar Wilde lived during a long time will be your place, but you will have many others choices, from Marco Polo to Charles the 10th passing by Mistinguett or Venice and Pondichery. The hotel is most probably one of the most beautiful places of Saint-Germain-des-prés.

L’ESPRIT SAINT-GERMAIN

 

L’Esprit Saint-Germain is a hotel designed as a private house in minute detail. This hotel has nothing ostentatious but has a true “spirit”, a mix of elegance and conviviality, comfort and refinement. Everything is thought through for us to feel at home. At any hour of the day, in the library living room, in front of the fireplace, we can read the newspaper, leaf through a book, drink a coffee or receive friends around a drink. And most of all, after a very full Parisian program, one cannot miss Espace détente (Relaxation Space) : a hammam and a sauna with an unrestricted view on the Parisian roofs and the Saint-Sulpice Church.
