Paris: Le Bristol

by Ella FAIRCHILD on July 30, 2009

From the moment you arrive at this classic four star hotel, you will know that you matter to them. Every single member of staff will be extremely polite, helpful and cheerful. You will be welcomed by the friendly door staff and shown to reception. Here, you will be greeted with a smile and given their uninterrupted attention.

After the formalities, you will be taken to your room and shown how everything works. In the room, you will find many fragrant perfumes and an assortment of fresh flowers.

Le Bristol is truly one of Paris’ most sophisticated addresses. It is the kind of place where you will want to dress smartly to match the stylish ambience. The stunning, old-fashioned decor of Le Bristol oozes authentic only-in-Paris seduction.

Period 18th century furniture, a luxurious bed in hushed tones and an overall Parisian parlour atmosphere in the large rooms will have you feeling like you have stepped back in time.

The spacious marble bathroom off the bedroom has a collection with flower-scented products. Some rooms look out over the hotel’s delightful inner courtyard garden, from others you can gaze over the look over the vista of Paris.

The Palais de l’Elysees, home to the French president and the republic’s First Lady, is right around the corner from the hotel and the sharp-eyed will see visiting dignitaries in the hotel’s dining areas and lounges.
