Fashion icons call this home
You’d be hard-pressed to pick a more fashionable spot in Paris. Sandwiched between the River Seine and the Avenue des Champs Elysees, the area known as the Golden Triangle becomes a veritable catwalk during Fashion Week. The 40-minute cab ride from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle will cost you ($ A81), or ($ 360) in the hotel’s Mercedes E class limo.
What we like
A slightly bemused look from concierge staff suggests that not many guests take the hotel’s complimentary red bicycles out for a spin. Shame because it’s the perfect way to see Paris.
You also have to love a hotel that has won a second world championship in pastry making. In France there are pastry collections for the seasons – and here, they are served by the lipsmacking metre.
What we don’t
Don’t dive into the hotel’s deliciously decadent Christian Dior Institute
