Flanelles Hotel Paris, the expert opinion
Two steps from the Arc de Triomphe and the twelve arteries that join it, its location is perfect. In a 17th arrondissement highly appreciated by travelers, its one-way street allows it to be preserved from the Parisian bustle while being in the immediate proximity of all monuments and activities that Paris has to offer. Find the Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe within 400m, the Eiffel Tower at 2,000m or the Louvre at 5,000m. Enough to travel around Paris without any constraints.
The owner, Pascal Donat, at the head of Valotel group (which manages a portfolio of around twenty hotels in France) is used to renovations and the hotel industry.
For this project, he entrusted the keys to design to the Laurent & Laurence agency, which wanted to give Flanelles hôtel a strong and contemporary identity. Thus giving it very particular character traits: an atmosphere that is both intimate, even select while being welcoming and caring.
A bubble of sweetness in the heart of the capital!
Elegant and intimate, the rooms and suites are functional and invite you to rest. They are an ideal cocoon after a long day of discovering Paris or after many professional meetings. The soundproofing is perfect, the light is muffled. The too often forgotten bedding by hoteliers is here as delicate as one wishes. Each room has air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, a nespresso machine and a wardrobe. In the bathroom, free toiletries and a hairdryer are included.
On request it is also possible to have shoe polish, a garment steamer, an electric adapter if you come from abroad or a phone charger.
One downside: during the day the interior light does not manage to give enough brightness and forces us to use all the lights, especially in rooms.
Services and facilities
The hotel offers a wide range of services and facilities which we particularly appreciated. First and foremost, its spa which undoubtedly allows it to play with the big boys. It offers signature treatments and beauty rituals on demand, at all hours of the day. Here, special and personalized attention is paid to travelers. We particularly like the wellness course that can be privatized for a unique moment, whether with the sauna and hammam or with the rest room and its astonishing wall of salt which provides fullness thanks to natural ionization. Remember to book in advance. Places are expensive and if you don't want to disappoint your partner, nothing beats a quick phone call a few days before your stay. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but offer a bar. It also serves breakfasts designed for both early risers and lovers of late mornings. Served from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. it is an undeniable asset! To delight departing travelers, it is a service that worth its weight in gold but which is only rarely deployed : the Flanelles hotel provides its cocoon space with a shower and a changing room to be able to cool off at the earliest arrival or at the latest departure. And of course, regardless the time of the day, luggage can be kept secure. The hotel also offers many other assets that will seduce you: restaurant reservations, personalized station and airport transfer service, free wifi & high speed, provision of 4G smartphones throughout Paris, printing service, reception of small animals, 24-hour reception service and also access for people with reduced mobility. For professionals, the Flanelles hotel offers the privatization of a place for your meetings or seminars.
Value for money
With such prices for a Parisian 4*hotel, the Flanelles hotel offers excellent value for money due to its location, the freshness of its decoration, the quality of its welcome and its services.
