Buddha-bar Hotel Paris
Being a frequent Paris traveller, I often get annoyed about the overpriced but mediocre standard of the hotels in this metropolitan city. I'm a resident in Turkey since a long time and I know what I can expect from a good 5 star hotel in e.g. Istanbul or along the Turkish Riviera. But on my last trip to Paris I made a discovery, I simply have to share with you.
Located at 4 rue d'Anjou, at the intersection of rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré and La Madeleine, exist a property that has been build to offer a unique experience of Parisian hospitality, combining French lifestyle with exciting Asian influence and plenty of modern perks. Right behind the Élysée Palace, the Champs-Élysées and in walking distance to Paris' most famous tourist attractions, the Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris reflects the very essence of good life and offers something that exceeds the expectations of those seeking the unforgettable.
The building itself is a 18th century mansion, beautifully restored and revisited in a Neo-Asian style that brings the hotel right at the forefront of French hotel classification. Comfort & service is positioned in a beautiful real 5-star hotel. A spacious interior courtyard provides an excellent ambience for alfresco dining, which is difficult to find in Paris. There is a small fitness centre that includes a spa and a hamam. I highly recommend this hotel for your next trip to this wonderful city.
