L'officiel Shopping - - Tales of Winter -

Lo­ca­ted just a few hun­dred yards away from the my­thic Pa­ris res­tau­rant which gave it its name, the Bud­dha-Bar Ho­tel re­pre­sents a sty­lish and char­ming od­di­ty on the ca­pi­tal's ho­tel land­scape. It is in an ele­gant buil­ding from the 18th cen­tu­ry, made in­to a Zen ha­ven, that the ho­tel ins­tal­led it­self in 2013. In a de­sire to take clients still fur­ther on their jour­ney right up in­to the smal­lest cor­ners of the place, they have em­pha­si­zed Asian in­fluences. Shan­ghai in the 30s, first of all, which shows it­self in de­co­ra­tive fea­tures like the ico­nic dra­gon which mean­ders through the cor­ri­dors and is al­so present at Re­cep­tion in the dark Ne­pa­lese stone mo­saics. The red and saf­fron yel­low on the walls of Le Vray­monde res­tau­rant re­mind us of Im­pe­rial Chi­na. Ja­pan with its cher­ry trees meld in­to the hu­shed am­biance of the bar, le Qu4tre, al­rea­dy known for its cock­tails, ins­pi­red by the four ele­ments: air, fire, water and earth. Pa­ris, for its part, is ne­ver ve­ry far away. It's found in the ty­pi­cal pa­ved square around which the ho­tel's 37 rooms and 19 suites can be found, and even in the rooms them­selves with their his­to­ric mol­ded and gilt work. A special men­tion goes to the Ga­gny suite, which brilliant­ly brings to­ge­ther con­tem­po­ra­ry fur­ni­ture and Pa­ris style with its crys­tal chan­de­lier and pink gra­nite chim­ney in the middle of the ba­throom. A temple of se­re­ni­ty, next to the bustle of the shops along Rue du Fau­bourg-Saint-Ho­no­ré. —
