News

I always wanted to stay at Le Bristol, one of the best hotels in Paris. With the Leading Hotels of the World and Oetker Collection stamps, it is a palace hotel built in an 18th century mansion, in one of the noblest addresses of Paris. Therefore, it is impossible to pass by the Rue Faubourg St Honoré and not perceive it, there, all the imposing. I had already been in the hotel for lunch and dinner, since there is one of the best restaurants in Paris, Epicure. However, this time, I had the complete experience of staying at Le Bristol. And it was certainly sensational! Also read about 6 romantic cities in Europe and the reopening of the Louvre museum.

Hotel Le Bristol

The hotel was opened in 1925, when Paris lived one of its periods of apogee and attracted artists, intellectuals and stylists, such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Picasso, Mondrian and Dali, who frequented the hotel. It is no wonder that he was and is still used, often as a setting for fashion editorials and also varied filming.

In 2007, Le Bristol, one of the best hotels in Paris, made a major renovation by buying the building next door, next to Av. This new part was opened in 2009, with 21 rooms, 5 suites and a very friendly brase, inspired by the original decoration of the main building. After that, in 2011, Le Bristol Paris opened the spa, fully renovated and two new suites decorated by the Oekter family – the owner of the hotel – which also designed the other spaces. In addition, in this same year, Le Bristol was the first five-star hotel in France to win the title of “Palace” by the French Prime Minister.

Location

Certainly the address is the number 1 data of a five star hotel. So with Le Bristol it couldn't be any different. In addition to the Rue Faubourg St Honoré is full of designer shops and be close to a number of good restaurants, bars and cafes, from there we walk to the Place de La Concorde, Tuilleries Gardens – the gardens of the Louvre – and the Seine River. We are also walking distance from the famous Champs Elysées, which does not require presentations. That is, a privileged location, which allows us to do several walking tours in Paris. Ten minutes walking from two important museums: The Grand Palais and also the Petit Palais, where I went to check out the Rodin exhibition.

(I can’t help but mention that on the day there was an attack in Paris on the Av Champs Elysées and I was at the hotel, I was prevented from leaving the streets closed. I canceled my reservation at the chosen restaurant and “I had” to dine in the brasseries, where I was received with great affection. In fact, all the hotel staff was concerned and considerate of guests. Care was not taken to make us wrong with what happened. I ended up having a very pleasant dinner, where I had a delicious bouillabaisse – seafood soup. The perplexity and sadness of the night were softened by so much affection and attention.

The Spa and the Pool

On the sixth floor of the hotel, is the indoor pool and a terrace beyond charming, where I could not resist and used scenery for a photo shoot with Brazilian photographer Gerson Lirio. The pool project, which also has a solarium, resembles that of a ship of the 1920s. The idea is that we are sailing the Côte D’Azur, towards the wonderful Hotel du Cap Ferrat.
