Three of the Best: New Hotels in Paris

Paris is having a moment.

Fresh from the glittering launch of The Ritz last year, at The Lucky Onion we’ve round up three more fabulous new hotels in Paris…

Le Roch Hotel and Spa

A stone’s throw from The Louvre, this stylish 37-room property in a renovated Haussmann building is the perfect package of history meets contemporary. It’s a clever mix of elegant and relaxed with squashy sofas by the fire, geometric rugs, white marble and bookshelves filled with art and design books. To add to the chic line-up, there’s a large restaurant (try the superb sea bream sashimi with flower petals) plus a sprawling guests-only terrace with velvet banquettes. Book one of the light-filled Indulgence suites with its own beautifully tiled private hammam. Further pampering can be found in the sumptuous spa with treatments by cult Parisian brand Codage before flopping in the bijou swimming pool.

Amastan Paris

This 24-room boutique gem, just around the corner from the Champs-Élysées, plays to a cool crowd, combining chic urban design with a distinctive homely style. It’s classic Parisian apartment with a contemporary twist – think leather-bound books, framed photographs and walnut furniture, complemented by striking walls clad in petrol blue parquet and a bespoke tapestry by award-winning German designer, Jan Kath. The eclectic Anouk bar ticks all the boxes, too, with a leafy jasmine-scented garden – the infused gin and tonics are a must. To top it off, there’s an excellent two-floor library with 2,000 books to browse and the hotel’s project space is a city first, dedicated to pop-up art, fashion and design installations.

Grand Pigalle Hotel

Set in the trendy SoPi (South Pigalle) this is the first ‘bed and beverage’ from the Experimental Cocktail Club, famous for their cocktail bars and restaurants. They have done themselves proud, creating a buzzing 37-room boutique hotel and bar. Award-winning interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon has triumphed with a retro design, where art deco angles sit happily alongside original fireplaces, geometric wallpaper, brassy pineapple door knockers and custom-made mahogany desks. Celebrated chef Giovanni Passerini is on hand with his delicious Italian sharing plates served up with lashings of Mediterranean charm. However, cocktail culture is king here so make sure you have a tipple first from the cool (but not cocky) specially devised drinks menu.
