Overlooking the effiel tower, Michel Reybier’s swanky five-star hotel is situated just a three minute walk away from the Champs Elysees.
Complete with 26 suites and 14 rooms, all designed by French interior designer Jaques Garcia for much more than sleeping. Step inside your suite and you’ll find a fully-stocked private bar including Johnnie Walker Whiskey, Grey Goose vodka and soft drinks, which your private butler can mix up for you.
Yes, you read it right… a private butler. La Reserve is the first hotel in Paris to offer a private butler to every guest.
But if it’s a moment to yourself you’re after, the hotel’s library is lined with 2000 first edition books that are ready to accompany your morning coffee and croissant.
Originally built for Duc de Morny, Napoleon III’s half-brother, the space exudes style and character that is the perfect mix of age old grandeur and the luxe of a Parisian millionaire’s home. Suitably, the hotel’s last owner was haute couture fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
Whilst the hotel’s old school grandeur is apparent, with immaculate parquet floors and Persian carpets throughout, its accompaniment of modern quirks such ‘no check-in’ style check in make it the perfect mix of Parisian class and modern tech.
But if it’s an afternoon away from the city’s hustle and bustle you need then La Reserve is complete with an exquisite spa. Set around a 16-meter indoor pool, it’s the perfect place to recharge your batteries and restore the vital energy that you’ll need ahead of the festive season.
