“Le Bristol Paris is one for the foodies as it’s home to not one, but two Michelin star restaurants boasting four stars between them. People literally travel from around to world to eat at Epicure which alone holds 3 of those stars and serves a classically French, Haute Cuisine menu. The hotel itself is super elegant and quintessentially Parisian in style; it’s also one of the only elite ‘Palace Hotels’ to have a garden. Another big highlight is the fantastic Spa Le Bristol with its gorgeous rooftop swimming pool.”
Describing itself as ‘the embodiment of French luxury and refinement’, Le Bristol is one of just six hotels in Paris (Le Royal Monceau is another) to be awarded ‘palace’ status; meaning that it is rated as higher than five-star. Sitting in the centre of the France’s fashion and arts district, today it is something of a Paris institution.
The hotel is owned by a family of art collectors, a fact reflected in the 92 suites and 96 rooms, which are decorated in the hotel’s classic, timeless style. Many overlook the central Jardin Française.
Food lovers will be happy here as it has the highest number of Michelin stars of all Parisian hotels. Epicure restaurant holds three, and the hotel’s upmarket brasserie 114 Faubourg has one too. Le Bar du Bristol is a favourite among Parisians for after work drinks.
The swimming pool is located on the hotel’s sixth floor and boasts superb views across the rooftops of Paris. There’s also a fitness centre and Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie has the first banya - or Eastern European steam bath - in Paris.
