In the former home of Prince Roland Bonaparte, overlooking the Eiffel Tower and River Seine, ultimate Parisian elegance lives on in the French capital. After being lovingly restored to its former grandeur, No.10 avenue d’Iéna’s “Palais” was reborn as Shangri-La Paris in December 2010. Centrally located in the 16th arrondissement, minutes from the Champs-Elysées, the hotel blends European grandeur with traditional Asian hospitality.
A princely residence in the legendary city of light
As you arrive at Shangri-La, Paris, its elegant façade brings to mind its legacy as the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte. Attentive staff and a pleasantly discreet check-in ensure that you receive the royal treatment right from the start.
In your room, commanding views of the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine hold you transfixed. The old-world elegance of the room, lovingly adorned with the fine work of craftsmen, is mirrored in the city that lies just below.
Here in the heart of Paris, the exclusive fashion designers on Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V are just around the corner, waiting for your attention.
For now, you’re in the mood for a light meal, and La Bauhinia is the just place for it. The exquisite glass cupola and Murano chandelier reflect the elegance of the meals prepared at the restaurant. On the other hand, you could savour the Cantonese cuisine at the renowned first Shang Palace in Europe, which earned 1 Michelin star in the Michelin Guide.
With your hunger satisfied and spirit invigorated, it’s time to immerse yourself in the City of Lights. The Nektar, Le Bar’s signature cocktail, is just the pick-me-up needed to start you off.
After a night like that, you’re reluctant to leave. The city has left you enamored. And it all began at the majestic Shangri-La, Paris.
