If you go to the fashion capital and look for a central and discreet place to stay, here’s my recommendation.
This boutique hotel is situated behind the famous Place de la Madeleine in the 8è in Paris.
It is definitely a privilege if you can book the presidential suite as it is offering a 360° view on the whole city. You don’t even need to go for visiting, you can already watch all the major architecture 😉 Obviously, you can enjoy breakfast and drinks on your private terrasse; the Eiffel Tower, Montmatre, St Augustin and Madeleine will wait for you.
The large bathroom and living room are modern but in classic style. Don’t expect contemporary sculptures or Louis XIV paintings !
Two restaurants are open but my favorite is from far La Chinoiserie. There, you can enjoy the high and large glass roof , as well as the cozy atmosphere. During winter, you can also sit by the fireplace, which is a great plus to me.
The food is very nice, quite refined and very fresh. The service is great as well, young and smily staff.
Overall, I would say the prices are correct given the place and standing.
