Shangri-La Hotel, Paris

10 Ave d'Iéna, Paris

by James Wilkinson

Classic French architecture combines with Shangri-La’s impeccable Asian service at this luxury Paris hotel.

Just steps from the River Seine, the boutique Shangri-La Hotel, Paris (there’s only 101 rooms and suites here) in the 6th arrondissement isn’t just an exceptional property because of its location, even though you’ll have views of the Eiffel Tower from almost every room and while swimming at the pool.

Here, at the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, also find two Michelin-starred restaurants in L’Abeille and Shang Palace, top afternoon tea den La Bauhinia, a cocktail bar and one of the best day spas in town.
