Exploring Paris with Small Luxury Hotels of The World - PART 2

- - - 
Next on our itinerary was the glamorous Grand Hotel du Palais Royal, a magnificent 18th century listed building located between the (v insta-famous!) Palais Royal and the Louvre. The Royal Gardens that sit beside, flow through the decor of the hotel in the form of lush green accents and floral features.

The hotel also has a Carita spa with an authentic Turkish hammam, as well as it's own fine dining restaurant; Le Lulli. I recommend the salmon!

One of the most spectacular and unique delights of the Grand Hotel du Palais Royal has to be its inredible views - one of the rooms we visited had spectacular views over Paris and all the way to Sacré-Cœur. Grand Hotel du Palais Royal is one of many hotels in the SLH Parisian portfolio that has everything to offer on its doorstep.

We also popped into Hotel du Petit Moulin, a historic 17th-century bakery complete with its original shop front. From the outside, Hôtel du Petit Moulin looks like another one of Paris' charming bakeries, but inside lies a 17-room hotel flamboyantly decorated in baroque, couture and rococo styles by Christian Lacroix. 

Hotel du Petit Moulin is definitely a hotel to note if you're looking for a more intimate, understated (on the outside!) place to stay in Paris.

Lastly, we visited Hotel San Regis for an indulgent, three course lunch before heading back to Gare du Nord to enjoy the Eurostar Business Class lounge.

A short walk from Champs-Élysées and Avenue Montaigne, Hotel San Regis is located in the designer district of Paris, the 8th arrondissement. The classic, elegant decor of the San Regis was one of my personal favourites. I've mentioned before that my tastes regarding decor and furnishings are more on the traditional side, without being stuffy and old fashioned. The hotel, which it set within a townhouse that dates back to 1857, is styled in a grand, extravagant way whilst still maintaining an intimate charm. It's impressive without feeling cold, unwelcoming or overbearing. 

The rooms, like many of the hotels in the Small Luxury Hotels of The World group, the 42 rooms are individually decorated in a traditionally elegant and Parisian style. If you choose to stay in one of the hotel's Deluxe Junior Suites, you'll enjoy your very own balcony with a magnificent view of The Eiffel Tower.

For lunch, we dined in Hotel San Regis's very own gourmet restaurant. Like the rest of the hotel, the restaurant is impeccably decorated, intertwining antique oil paintings with modern glass features - the most impressive of which being the eye-catching glass roof that really gives the room a light and airy atmosphere - almost as if you're dining on an enclosed balcony or terrace.


Thank you so much for reading! I really hope you enjoyed this little two part series. Do check out Small Luxury Hotels of The World if you're looking for a place to stay in Paris in the future.
