Paris, capital of France and often renowned as the city of love and romance, is famed far and wide for its reputation of luxury and leisure. The city has some of the finest five-star hotels ever spoken of, each of which is praised with its own individual accolades and extravagances. But between so many options of luxury and pleasure, which hotel can you be sure is the right one for you?
Top 10 best luxury hotels in Paris
There’s plenty things to do and see in Paris, from the popular sights like the Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, to the more subtle La Pagode or Musée Rodin. After a busy day of sightseeing, you’ll want to come back to somewhere special, so with that in mind, here are some of the ten best luxury hotels in Paris (+1).
Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome
This is one of Paris’ finest hotels, receiving much acclaim for its Asian-style interior aesthetic. And with a pricing of about £662 per night, it’s also ranked amongst the more affordable options on this list.
You’ll find this hotel one of the more conveniently positioned, thanks in large part to its close proximity to the Eiffel Tower. It’s located near the very centre of Paris, and the luxury both it and the area offer are simply immeasurable. With the sharp and eager service always ready to help, alongside the Imperial Suite’s individual spa, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome makes for one of the most appropriately comfortable and luxury Paris getaways available.

Having originally opened back in August of 2014, the Peninsula hotel Paris was quick to establish itself as one of the most luxury and memorable hotels in all of the city of romance. And with room prices being around £793 per night, you can be sure you’ll get everything you paid for and more in terms of luxury.
This hotel is a large one, taking up an entire city block. Every single one of the 200 rooms and suites were made with the comfort of the patron in mind. Not to mention, it’s perfectly positioned as a destination for travellers, given that it’s located near the heart of Paris only in short walking distance from some of its most memorable monuments and attractions. The service is beyond quality, and the stay an assuredly satisfying one.

Sofitel Paris Faubourg
Another hotel found near the heart of Paris and nearby to many of its best attractions, the Sofitel Paris Faubourg promises elegance and style, making your stay both a luxurious and a cultural one. It’s also one of the cheaper listed options, at only £327 per night on average. Don’t let this dissuade you, however, as its brilliant quality is not to be underestimated.
All 148 of this hotel’s rooms and suites provide the most absolute forms of quality and comfort. A menu of some of the finest Parisian foods and cultural dishes was prepared with love and care to be enjoyed either in the hotel’s venue, or your own room where you can enjoy it in your own quiet element. The room service is also worthy of praise, for its diligence alone!

Hôtel Plaza Athénée
Situated close to the Champs Elysees, in one of Paris’ more fashionable districts is the Plaza Athénée – a hotel more than worthy of a spot on this list. Also one among the pricier options, given that its average cost will set you back by about £795 per night.
This hotel, a part of The Dorchester Collection, has been extremely welcoming to all of its guests since its establishment in 1913. If your interests happen to lie in Parisian fashion, then there’s no better hotel to stay at, as this one is at the centre of all the city’s fashion boutiques and culture. What’s more, the hotel’s Dior Institute (the only one in all of Europe!) is an exclusive highlight that provides some of the finest spa treatments you’ll ever have the pleasure of experiencing!

The Mandarin Oriental
Found on one of the most fashionable streets in the whole world – Saint-Honoré, this is a hotel found near the city’s heart, close to all of its most famous attractions. In this hotel, a room will cost you near £576 a night, marking it as one of the most affordable on the list.
The indoor aesthetic of the hotel follows closely behind the subtle yet exuberant styles of Paris in the 1930s, and it pulls off the atmosphere extraordinarily well. The majority of the 138 rooms and 39 suites overlook the wonderful gardens outside, and are never too far away from the plentiful bar and restaurant of the hotel – both of which are acclaimed to be among the best in Paris.

Famed to be the only ‘palace hotel’ on the left banks, the Hotel Lutetia has become something of a Parisian icon. It dates all the way back to 1910, with an average pricing of £567 per night.
With a combination of 24-hour room service and a more-than-comfortable welcome upon arrival, you’ll find this hotel to be one of the most leisureful in all of Paris. The restaurants and bars are of particular fame, being a meeting spot for many historically significant figures and characters. They offer fine drinks, and even finer foods, as well as a promise of the utmost luxury throughout your stay.

Four Seasons Hotel George V
This hotel holds particular fame for its breathtaking lobby arrangement and aesthetic, being that its décor was devised by the famed designer Jeff Leatham. But beauty isn’t all this hotel has to offer. It serves to know that you’ll be spending around £824 per night at the Four Seasons, marking it as the second most expensive option on this list.
This hotel is rather remarkably located in city’s centre, only a short breath away from the Champs-Elysées avenue. As for the provision of luxury, you won’t find it lacking with its near-flawless service always on point whenever you need it, along with a designer spa, fitness centre with a pool, and even a rather pleasant champagne bar. It’s expense to be sure, but an undoubtedly worthwhile stay.

Grand Powers Hotel
The Grand Powers was a hit with its guests even back during its initial opening in 1920, but since its recent refurbishments it’s been elevated from a simple yet gorgeous hotel to a mainstay of the city. The average pricing here is typically found to be around £327 per night, making it not only classy, but highly affordable as well.
To this day, the internal designs are some of the most extravagant and eye-catching aspects of what this hotel has to offer, from its 1940s-50s styled furniture to its Art Deco designed lobby. The service is not to be understated either, with the Spa Thala which offers a sauna, hammam as well as a rather pleasant whirlpool. A perfect hotel to rid yourself of stress, as well as to experience the unique and luxury cultures of Paris.
Shangri-La Hotel Paris
This hotel was originally built as a home for Prince Roland Bonaparte: the grand-nephew of the famed battle tactician Napoleon Bonaparte, back in 1896. As it stands, a stay here may end up costing you around £624 per night.
The place is a milestone of the revolutionary era, with its close proximity to the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine providing aweing views that just can’t be beaten by too many other hotels out there. This alone marks it high on the list, but combined with the 81 bedrooms and suites all styled in the most traditional Parisian means, and the unmatched menus of the restaurants venues, alongside the value as a touristic central point, there’s simply no reason not to indulge in the promised leisure of the Shangri-La.

Hotel de Crillon a Rosewood Hotel
The number on pick on this list also happens to be among the most expensive of the options. Hotel de Crillon is one of the most renowned and celebrated hotels in all of Paris, being that it’s established in a building that’s been around since as far back as the 18th century. Staying here will end up costing you about £856 per night, though this may depend on the room.
This rather luxury hotel consists of 124 rooms, of which 36 are suites, along with 10 signature rooms. Of course, much of the hotel had undergone renovations, given that it’s set in such an old building, but some of the rooms were still preserved extraordinary well. This includes some of the rooms nearer to the front of the hotel, and these are celebrated as some of the more beautiful and grander available rooms. The positioning is simply unrivalled as well, given that it’s located just over Place de la Concorde. All this, combined with the fine cuisine venues, spa area, and indoor swimming pool, there’s just no way to rival the sort of luxury available at Hotel de Crillon.
