Hong Kong’s finest hotel has finally made its way to Europe, and in true Peninsula style, it has truly made it’s mark on the luxury hotel scene.
Having stayed at the Peninsula Hong Kong on a number of occasions in the past, I can speak of the unforgettable fusion of the English colonialism and the Chinese taste for all things high-end. The hotel is refined, sophisticated, and just the perfect amount of pompous.
The Peninsula’s European venture is an elegant 200 room heritage building, just a stones throw from the Champs-Elysees, offering stunning rooftop views over the 16th arrondissement.
The refurbishment of the 100-year-old building cost the Peninsula team over $575 million dollars and took 4 years to complete. Each room is fitted with essentials such as a coffee machine, nail-polish dryer, and central digital tablet that controls all functions from light dimming to room service. Despite the 100-year-old façade you will find the rooms very spacious and the service as good as in the ‘old days’.
The new establishment boasts 6 restaurants in which to enjoy anything from the Peninsula’s signature Cantonese delicacies to lighter bites on one of the largest terraces in Paris.

Be sure to get there when you pounce through Paris… Sil vous plait.
