The Best Hotels in Paris, France

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Paris, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our Team in Paris are four ladies living in the city.

Paris, the cosmopolitan capital of France, the iconic capital for young lovers in the spring time, has a well-deserved reputation of being the most beautiful and romantic of all cities, brimming with historic associations and remaining vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.

Paris, la Ville Lumière and Capital of Fashion, is home to the world's finest and most luxurious fashion designers and cosmetics, such as Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Guerlain, Lancôme, L’Oréal and Clarins.

Paris' monument-lined boulevards, museums, classical bistros and boutiques are enhanced by a new wave of multimedia galleries, creative wine bars and design shops. The city has the second highest number of Michelin restaurants in the world and contains numerous iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, Moulin Rouge, and Lido. The Musée d’Orsay and Musée de l’Orangerie are noted for their collections of French Impressionist art, and the Pompidou Centre Musée National d’Art Moderne has the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe.

Parisians are synonymous with style, and fashion shopping is the city’s forte. Paris remains at the forefront of international trends, and browsing emerging and established designer boutiques and flagship haute couture houses is a quintessential part of any visit.

French currency is Euro (€).

Paris has iconic hotels like the Ritz, Hôtel de Crillon, Le Bristol and Le Meurice, which we of course recommend, but our ladies in Paris also love these hotels:

Hotel Le Fouquet Hotel Le Fouquet represents absolute luxury. Located on the Champs-Elysées, the hotel boasts a dream location in the heart of the Golden Triangle, between the Arc de Triomphe and the luxury boutiques on Avenue Montaigne.

The Hotel is completely renovated. Delicate fabrics and precious leathers, vast dressing rooms and spacious bathrooms characterise these suites on the Champs-Elysées. Black and white portraits and mahogany wood. Subtle combination of Empire and modern style. Refined velvet, embroided delicate fabrics. A quintessential Parisian decor.

The Spa is a true cocoon of serenity offering absolute relaxation – treat yourself to an energising treatment or dive into the clear waters of the indoor pool – and you can extend the moment on the terrace, in the intimate charming garden, or in a comfortable armchair in the hotel bar.

Superb staff. Sample flavours at legendary tables. Experience a dazzling experience in the City of Lights.

46, avenue Georg V
Champs Elysées Plaza The boutique Hotel Champs Elysées Plaza is located in the Heart of Paris – a human size Palace with only 40 Rooms and Suites with Jacuzzi in a beautiful Haussmann style building – the former Town Manor – renovated in a Classical Chic style, most of the rooms and suites boast old mouldings along the ceilings, marble mantlepieces, broad windows overlooking either Berri or Artois Streets or the courtyard – and the top-floor provide a splendid view of Paris rooftops – all with the most sophisticated technology.

Champs MARQUIS Faubourg St Honoré MARQUIS Faubourg St Honoré – high-end boutique hotel located in the heart of Paris – adds luxury and comfort to strategic location within the luxurious Faubourg Saint-Honoré district – in the intimate setting of the 18th century private mansion at 8 rue d’Anjou – in walking distance of landmarks such as the Louvre Museum, the Opera House and the prestigious Champs-Elysées Avenue.

8, rue d'Anjou
Maison Souquet Our best secret hotel, hidden behind an understated façade in the legendary area around Montmartre. In a building that served as a pleasure house during the Belle Époque, old mystery, elegance, exoticism, sensuality, and ostentatious luxury have been brought to life again.

The suites are places of real sanctuary. At the point where culture and haute-couture meet, they offer an intimate, luxuriant taste of French living, decorated with a lovingly compiled collection of paintings and artwork.

In a subdued corner of the maison, the spa is the part of the hotel where fantasy reigns most freely, decorated with a celestial ceiling whose golden stars shimmer across a cobalt blue sky above the swimming pool – a unique fairy tale magic that diffuses into the adjacent hammam and treatment room.

Very warm and personal service.

10, rue de Bruxelles
Relais Christine Another unique hideaway in one of Paris' best locations: Saint-Germain-des-Prés – the Relais Christine is one of the Left Bank’s best kept secrets – a favourite address, jealously guarded by all lovers of Paris who seek the friendly atmosphere of a family home with the refinement and attentive service of the very best luxury hotels.

Each of the splendidly unique rooms and suites projects a resolutely chic and intimate universe: antiques, cosy velvet, warm woodwork and noble materials, Toile de Jouy print in one room, canopy beds in another, Carrara marble bathrooms, and more.

The well-equipped spa is located under 13th century vaults - a world of energising and relaxing possibilities - where guests can luxuriate in a refined setting, where ancient stones exude serenity far from the madding crowds.

The very warm and welcoming staff do their best to find the perfect fit for everyone.

3, rue Christine
Le Cinq Codet Located in the 7th district, just a 5-minute walk from the Hôtel des Invalides and the Eiffel Tower is a 15-minute walk away. The Cinq Codet is elegant and cultivated, an integrated part of the boutiques on the rue de Sèvres and the art and designer galleries of the district.

Large bright bay windows, portholes, adroitly integrated design, mezzanines or loggias, round seats and sliding doors – the Cinq Codet rooms evoke a “je ne sais quoi” of ocean liners of times gone by. Time when travelling was an art and entertaining was a culture. On the top floor, the spectacular private terraces rub shoulders with the Invalides dome or the Eiffel Tower.

Nestled around an open terrace on the 3rd floor, the Spa offers a safe haven and a sanctuary to escape the daily stresses. Outdoor jacuzzi, a double massage room and steam bath enhance your relaxation experience.

A very pleasant boutique hotel.

5, rue Louis Codet
Hôtel d’Aubusson In the heart of the Latin Quarter, the Hôtel d’Aubusson is a short walk from the Louvre and Orsay Museums, Île de la Cité and Notre-Dame, the Sorbonne and the Latin Quarter, Luxembourg Gardens, the Odéon Theatre, etc.

A genuine townhouse with origins date back to the 17th century. This Boutique Hotel harmoniously combines a refined interior design and contemporary facilities – rooms and suites are spacious with a Parisian atmosphere. The hotel has preserved its olden day charms: Versailles parquet, open beams, monumental fireplace in Burgundy stone and Aubusson tapestries – colours and materials highlight the refined interior design and immerse you in a restful atmosphere.

In the hotel's interior patio, the winter garden, you can have breakfast, enjoy a drink or, simply, get away from it all, sheltered from the hustle and bustle of Parisian life.

Perfect for a romantic stay in Paris, in the heart of one of the capital's authentic neighbourhoods: Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Very warm, welcoming and helpful staff.
