Le Royale Monceau Raffles, Paris, France

Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

On the avenue between the Arc de Triomphe and Parc Monceau, grand Royal Monceau was reborn after a Philippe Starck makeover as a self-proclaimed luxury art hotel, complete with gallery, art concierge, concept store and cinema. Downstairs works particularly well, with an illuminated cocktail bar and courtyard garden. The 149 rooms are a Starck-conceived artistic clutter of eclectic lamps and tables, mixing retro and contemporary touches, with a vast island bed, photos and artworks propped against the wall and a guitar for you to strum.

The best design hotels in Paris

Hidden Hotel, Paris

Hidden Hôtel

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

Hidden Hôtel is an oasis of calm and serenity near the traffic-busy Arc de Triomphe. The idea is to provide a refuge from the busy outside world – and it works. From the rough wooden façade draped in ivy to the long-haired ginger cow hide in reception and tree-trunk chairs by the fire, the use of different raw materials (wood, leather, concrete, wool, stone, copper, marble) is both comforting and mesmerising. Facilities include a cigar smoking lounge, yoga wall (with a personal yogi available upon request) and meeting rooms. Dry-cleaning service, luggage storage and concierge are available too.

Hotel Plaza Athenee

Paris, France

This 'Palace' hotel (a notch up from five-star) drips with luxury on one of Paris’ most fashionable streets, Avenue Montaigne, close to the Champs-Élysées.

The best honeymoon hotels in Paris

Hotel Mathis, Paris

Hôtel Mathis

Paris, France

9Telegraph expert rating

The hotel is footsteps from the Champs-Élysées, in the buzzing 8e arrondissement with the Arc de Triomphe, Palais Garnier opera house and Grand Palais (fabulous art exhibitions) all close by. Each of the 23 rooms is different, with colour scheme and mood decided by one original feature impishly preserved by the interior designer – Art Deco wall lights above the bed perhaps, a swathe of gorgeous 1930s printed wallpaper covered in greenfinches or Chinese boats. There is no room service, but who would not want to drink and dine in the hotel’s celebrated 1930s-inspired bar and restaurant, run by the Experimental Cocktail Club?

Pershing Hall

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

In the Champs-Elysées golden triangle, this golden stone townhouse still feels like an exclusive home as you are greeted at the reception pulpit. A vegetal wall by botanist Patrick Blanc reigns over the central atrium which is much loved for breakfast, while the bedrooms are calm havens of cream and brown. The 26 rooms and suites designed by style guru Andrée Puttman, are pared-back but welcoming, warmed up with lots of natural oak and the feminine touch of layers of tulle curtains and crystal ball bedposts, plus plenty of cupboard space for accommodating your shopping.

Hotel Ekta, Paris, France

Hotel Ekta

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

It's a return to the Sixties and Seventies in this converted modern office building, which pays homage to the black and white fashion world of Courrèges. After a mirrored staircase à la Chanel, you enter the friendly intimacy of a hotel with just 25 rooms that is fun, comfortable yet unpretentious. Suave black-and-white wrap-around bedheads make the rooms comfortable and welcoming, combined with zigzag cushions, carpets that look like a mishmash of Prince of Wales checks and tweeds, framed fashion photos on the walls, even fashion photo mirrors in the suites, ample plugs and individual air-conditioning.

The most stylish Paris hotels

Hotel Vernet, Paris, France

Hotel Vernet

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

The Vernet is refreshing while preserving its ever-so-Parisian Belle Époque origins. The spectacular glass and iron verrière now houses an excellent modern restaurant, there's a comfortable lounge bar, and the generously sized bedrooms mix natural wood, colourful cushions and jazzy bathrooms. Unlike many Parisian hotels, which tend to occupy converted buildings, the Vernet has been a hotel ever since it was built in 1913, so spaces are generally generous with rooms opening off a large stairwell. Chef Richard Robe, former number two at Taillevent, creates beautiful summery modern dishes in the spectacular restaurant, which is an insider address for Parisians who work nearby, as well as hotel guests.

Le Tsuba Hotel, Paris, France

Le Tsuba Hotel

Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

Le Tsuba is a pearly-white townhouse that dates back to 1926, on a side street in the classy 17e arrondissement. The Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe are 10 minutes' walk and the city panorama that unfolds from the top of the latter is a Paris essential. The hotel is inspired by the 'tsuba' – the highly decorative handguard of a traditional Japanese sword and a collector's item today. And it is this design precision and Asian aesthetic, so popular in 1930s Paris, that the hotel works hard to evoke. Summertime lounging is beneath a trio of buttermilk-coloured parasols in the leafy courtyard, decorated with garden-wall panels.
