La Réserve Hotel and Spa is located in the heart of Paris, just a stone’s throw away from the buzzing boulevard, Champs-Elysées and the impressive Eiffel Tower. Hidden behind a row of trees, this Haussmann-style mansion is 19th Century Parisian chic all over; from the silk hung walls to the ornate furniture and grand marble fireplaces. All of the rooms are huge spaces with lots of natural light, typical of Haussmann-style apartments. The ambiance and décor makes it feel like you’re staying in someone’s beautiful private home rather than a hotel. The hotel is comprised of only 26 suites and 14 rooms, all extravagantly spacious and elegantly decorated in sleek neutrals. There are two excellent restaurants to choose from; Le Gabriel has recently been awarded a second Michelin star for its contemporary French cuisine, whilst La Pagode de Cos offers a unique spice themed menu.
Nestled in a peaceful location, La Réserve is situated on a beautiful avenue in the smartest part of town with many of Paris’s main attractions right on its doorstep. The hotel is just a stone’s throw away from the Champs-Elysées and overlooks the roofs of the Pantheon and in the near distance the Grand Palais and Eiffel Tower. Easy to reach, the hotel is only a 35 minute drive from either of the two main international airports in Paris: Charles de Gaulle and Orly, and a 25 minute drive from Gare du Nord which is where the Eurostar from London arrives into.
La Réserve is comprised of 40 unique rooms, including 26 suites, each with their own personal butler service. All of the rooms are hugely spacious and light-filled as a result of beautiful floor to ceiling French doors. The rooms are all finely polished and the theatrical maestro, Jacques Garcia has done a splendid job on the décor; beautiful velvet drapes, heavy silk curtains and unique pieces of antique furniture. We love the rooms on the 5th floor which offer spectacular far-reaching views across the capital.
