  1. I really love Paris, it’s probably the most beautiful city I have ever visited. Everything looks so unreal, anyway I haven’t gone to any of these hotels but for me pretty much any hotel in the centre of the city is great…

  2. NW says:

    That view from the Shangri-La Hotel looks amazing! Although not on this list, I think the Park Hyatt Vendome is one of the nicest hotels in Paris, if not the world.

  3. Jamie says:

    We stayed at Hotel Castille. It was lovely. Especially liked the center courtyard at breakfast. Also, an easy walk to world class shopping and the Louvre. We also enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Jules Verne…but, make you reservations long in advance!

  4. Kim Defforge says:

    I frequently visit Paris and think it’s the most beautiful city. I once went to the Bristol Hotel bar for a glass of champagne and soak in the luxurious surroundings – simply magical!

  5. Jean says:

    Outstanding list! I recently stayed at Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere and it really takes ’boutique luxury’ to a higher level. What I like the most is the history behind the making of the hotel too, and their ties to the film industry that creates such an old world charm to the property.
