Where to start? As you enter the recently opened Peninsula hotel in Paris, you will be amazed by the wonderful and light lobby area. It is absolutely stunning from the spacious front desk to the dancing crystal leaves. Front desk staff is very professional and will do anything to make your stay unforgettable! The Peninsula Paris is located in a late 19th century classic Haussmanian building, which first opened as one of Paris’s most luxurious “grand hotels” in 1908. It has the perfect location right in the center of Paris:
literally 1 minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe and to “des champs elysees”.
All rooms are equipped with the latest technology without being “over the top”. The rooms come with a control customised interactive digital control tablets. I like the fact you can still “feel” the history of this grand hotel. Oh please notice the view of the Arc de Triomphe from the room! The bed was like an XXXL kingsized bed. The design of the rooms is perfect with neutral colours and accents.
You will never get bored at the Peninsula, the SPA area is one of the nicest I have ever seen featuring a large indoor pool, jacuzzi tubs and a few luxurious treatment rooms. Sauna, steam rooms and a full fitness center (with professional trainers!) are available for guests as well.
Hungry or thirsty after your workout? No problem! The Peninsula offers a few options: L’Oiseau Blanc and Lili are both top class restaurants with both stunning decors and menus. Do visit those places, they both are unique and L’Oiseau Blanc has a very exclusive rooftop bar with amazing views of the Eiffel Tower. You can even see Montmartre!
We had the Peninsula’s famed Afternoon Tea in The Lobby accompanied by live music. All pastries of the “Bûche de Noël” were created by Pastry Chef Julien Alvarez. Believe me, it was just perfect!
The Peninsula Paris is a top class 5 star hotel which I would thoroughly recommend!
