These Paris hotels offer something for everyone, whether you’re travelling solo, visiting for the first time or seeking Michelin-starred dining.

The Pennisula Paris

The Pennisula Paris

For the luxe lover

Sculpted lions and bellhops in white greet you as you enter the sumptuous lobby of the first European Peninsula. Opened in 2014 in a Haussmannian building, the hotel was restored by the master craftsmen behind the Château de Versailles. Savour steamed barbecued Kintoa pork buns and other Cantonese delights prepared by chef Chi Keung Tang at LiLi, one of the hotel’s three restaurants, which is inspired by French and Chinese operas.

Paris Maison Albar

Maison Albar Hotel Paris Céline

For the sophisticate

This flagship hotel for luxury brand Maison Albar may have only recently opened its doors, but whispers about room 1923 are already passing from ear to ear. With a skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows, the two-level, top floor suite possesses Parisian panoramas with La Canopée, Saint-Eustache church and the Eiffel Tower all in view. Each room is outfitted with iPad controls, so you can pull back the curtains without getting out of bed.

Hotel de la Trémoille

Hôtel de la Trémoille

For the first-time visitor

This fixture in the 8e arrondissement is a stone's throw from the Arc de Triomphe, and an easy (and achingly romantic) walk to the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower or the Rive Gauche. Book an intimate corner at the Louis2 Restaurant for chef Fabrice Debois' expert take on traditional favourites like foie gras and roast chicken.

Hotel Gabriel

For the business traveller

This boutique hotel’s immaculate rooms are reminiscent of small cocoons, thanks to their minimalist decor. Located on a quiet street, this art deco building is perfect for business travellers or those intent on exploring the nearby Marais and Place de la République.

25, rue du Grand Prieuré, 33-1-47-00-13-38, hotelgabrielparis.com

Hôtel Marignan

Hôtel Marignan

For the design obsessive

With its streamlined design, this former private mansion is the picture of minimalist restraint amid the more flamboyant crowd of Parisian five-star hotels. Case in point: the dark Zimbabwean stone that anchors the lower section of the elegant black and white facade. In the evening, catch a movie in the huge basement screening room.

For the solo traveller 

This sleek four-star boutique hotel offers free Wi-Fi and excellent house breakfasts. Located on the Left Bank, the hotel is just steps from Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chappelle and the Musée d’Orsay.

Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris

Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris

For the gourmand

This grand hotel is just steps from the Champs-Élysées, but its on-site art gallery, concept store and Clarins spa make it tempting to stay indoors. Head to Michelin-starred Il Carpaccio for braised beef cheek with star anise and cinnamon or roasted veal loin, served with millefeuille of winter vegetables and black truffles and don't miss chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Peruvian-Japanese cuisine at Matsuhisa Paris.

Shangri-La Hotel, Paris

Shangri-La Hotel, Paris

For the Instagrammer

Located in the 16e arrondissement next to the Palais de Tokyo and Musée Guimet, the first European location of the Hong Kong-based hotel group offers the postcard-worthy views of the Eiffel Tower. Start your day with cold-pressed juice at chef Christophe Moret’s supercharging B-Green wellness breakfast.

Renaissance Paris Republique

Renaissance Paris Republique

For the architecturally keen

You’ll appreciate the storied history of this revamped hotel, originally designed in the 1970s by Bernard Zehrfuss. Pop-out windows in standard suites offer a retro outlook on Paris’ right bank (Canal Saint-Martin is within a stone’s throw) while doubling as cozy reading nooks.

Hotel Grand Amour

Hôtel Grand Amour

For the romantic

The second Parisian outpost of hotelier and “Love Graffiti” artist André Saraiva – aka Mr. A – delivers big romance with 42 individually styled boudoirs, decorated with vintage furniture and original photography from the likes of Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton. Cap your night off with a dirty martini at the velvet-curtained bar, open to 2 a.m., before sinking into a late-night bubble bath.

Le Pavillon des Lettres

For the bookworm

In the heart of the 8e arrondissement, this “literary hotel” features 26 rooms (one for each letter of the alphabet), all named after notable authors. Start your day with a morning cappuccino on your room’s balcony overlooking the roofs of the surrounding Haussman buildings, or curl up with an iPad on loan from the reception, preloaded with works from the novelists highlighted on the property, from Diderot to Shakespeare.
