Vogue Reviews: Hôtel de Berri in Paris

Where: Hôtel de Berri , 18-22 Rue de Berri, Paris 75008, France

The Lowdown: Built on the footprint of the avant-garde fashion designer Elsa Schaiparelli’s former home, this stunning boutique hotel is located on the 8th arrondissement. Just off the Champs Elysees and within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and Grand Palais, it is a prime spot for the chic visitor who plans to do a little shopping and explore the enchanting landmarks of the city. If you are looking for a home à la Parisienne then look no further, Hôtel de Berri is decorated like an elegant Parisian mansion. Your senses are immediately stimulated when entering the property, with the extraordinary eclectic and bold décor including leopard print fabrics, sleek marble, bust heads and a knock-out art collection.

Hôtel de Berri in ParisStylish Eats: Whilst Paris offers exceptional gastronomy, the on-site restaurant is well worth a visit; much like the hotel’s spirit of a welcoming and cosy home, La Schiap (yup a nod to its former owner) is an unpretentious and gourmet trattoria serving up sumptuous classic Italian cuisine. Enjoy a custom-made cocktail in Bizzaz, the dazzling and bold cocktail bar, and look out onto what might be Hotel De Berri’s pièce de resistance – its 3000 sqft secret garden, overflowing with century-old trees and lush greenery.

Suite Talk: With 75 rooms, 35 of which are suites, you almost feel like you are in a club privè than a hotel. Decked out in vibrant colors, fake parchment, exquisite painting and antique furniture, the suites all feature allusions to elite Parisian artists and creatives, think Georges Geffroy, Coco Chanel and of course, Elsa Schiaparelli.

Insiders Tip: Room service here isn’t limited to ordering a lazy breakfast in bed, the hotel will happily install a rowing machine, treadmill, or any other fitness equipment for your workout needs.

Vogue Verdict: In a city brimming with places to stay, this gem of a hotel is the perfect place to explore the romance and magic of the City of Lights.
