A Hotel with a Difference

There are a lot of serious and breathtaking hotels to select from in Paris, but there is only one that is a must-see for the wealthiest. The Hôtel Le Bristol is a stunningly elegant and prestigious French creation, currently being owned by the German Oetker family. It might be because of the German running of the hotel that everything seems to run perfectly and precisely. It seems like the word ‘mistake’ has been deleted from the vocabulary of the hotel staff.

Residing beside the Élysée Palace, it is no wonder that the French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni are regular guests there. The style and architecture of the hotel resembles the velvet-like luxury, characteristic of the early 20th century. The wellness quarter within the hotel offers a state-of-the-art spa surrounded by the theme of a 19th century yacht which is carried through the furniture, floor and fresco to give us the feeling of being aboard a boat.

If the spa gets too hot or you’re feeling a little lightheaded, you can always relax on the comfortable seating overlooking Paris through its windows.

The bar is also astonishing; it is no wonder that it is the main hosting ground for the most exclusive fashion shows. The restaurant offers a summer and winter room, and it is enough to say it has been awarded three Michelin stars so far.

The cheapest room in the hotel costs around $1000 for a night, with the premium suites starting at $3000, breakfast not included, of course.
