Lo­cated be­tween the world fa­mous Champs-Elysées and Place du Tro­cadéro, Ci­tadines Arc de Tri­om­phe Paris is a sanc­tu­ary in the heart of the cen­tral busi­ness dis­trict, close to lux­ury bou­tiques, renowned mon­u­ments and mu­se­ums. Of­fer­ing a unique ex­pe­ri­ence un­like any other in Paris, the ser­viced res­i­dence seam­lessly mar­ries Parisian el­e­gance in a 19th cen­tury Hauss­man­nian apart­ment build­ing with the post­mod­ernist style of cel­e­brated ar­chi­tect Ri­cardo Bofill in an ad­join­ing ho­tel, of­fer­ing ex­pan­sive in­te­rior and flaw­less ar­chi­tec­tural lines.

We have fallen in love with it’s in­te­rior, de­signed by the award-win­ning, UK based ar­chi­tec­tural firm Buck­ley Gray Yeo­man, the in­te­rior dé­cor uses lav­ish ma­te­ri­als and fit­tings. In the build­ing de­signed by Ri­cardo Bofill, the con­tem­po­rary style in­cludes a mix­ture of tex­tures such as sy­camore wood with Car­rara bath­rooms. Pil­lows, chairs and other fur­ni­ture fea­ture fab­rics by well-known French de­sign house Pierre Frey. In the Hauss­man style build­ing, the dé­cor is more Parisian with Hun­gar­ian-point par­quet floors, light oak, mo­saics and elab­o­rate cor­nices that lend a classy yet cosy air to the apart­ments. Time­less and invit­ing, the in­te­rior has been de­signed with res­i­dents’ com­fort in mind.

We think the in­te­rior and am­biance gives a feel­ing of re­lax­ation and well-be­ing in an el­e­gant VIP set­ting lo­cated in the heart of Paris that in­cludes com­fort­able lounges, a 400-sqm gym­na­sium and two Turk­ish baths. The large board­room can ac­com­mo­date up to 20 peo­ple and is well equipped to en­able top ex­ec­u­tives and busi­ness lead­ers to hold meet­ings in the lap of lux­ury. As a guest, you can feel like roy­alty by requesting a per­son­alised stay tai­lored to your in­di­vid­ual needs. The ser­viced res­i­dence’s has 112 luxe units that span 35 to 108 sqm with dé­cor rang­ing from spa­cious clas­sic rooms for two, to two-bed­room suites which can ac­com­mo­date up to four adults and two chil­dren. En­joy op­ti­mum com­fort in the re­fined rooms or the suites with a kitchen that en­able guests to pre­pare home-cooked meals at their con­ve­nience. It of­fers a gor­geous view of its iconic name­sake and is one of sev­eral suites with a pri­vate ter­race. The apart­ments also have con­nect­ing rooms, al­low­ing guests and res­i­dents to adapt them to suit their needs.

Mr Al­fred Ong, Ass­cott’s Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Europe, said: “Ci­tadines Suites Arc de Tri­om­phe Paris of­fers lux­ury liv­ing in a ser­viced res­i­dence that com­bines Parisian el­e­gance with moder­nity in a prime lo­ca­tion. Cus­tomers will be spoilt for choice with spa­cious clas­sic rooms or apart­ments with sep­a­rate be­d­rooms and a fully equipped kitchen, all within the same build­ing. More­over, our Ci­tadines Suites Hosts will at­tend to ev­ery de­tail to make our guests feel at home. Our first prop­erty un­der the Ci­tadines Suites la­bel, Ci­tadines Suites Lou­vre Paris, is re­cently named one of the top 25 lux­ury ho­tels in France at TripAd­vi­sors’ Travellers’ Choice Awards.

Mr Ong added: “Since As­cott ac­quired the Ci­tadines apart-ho­tel chain in 2002, it has grown to be one of the largest Sin­ga­pore based com­pa­nies to in­vest in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try in France. In the last five years, As­cott has been up­grad­ing many of its prop­er­ties glob­ally in­clud­ing Europe to en­hance cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence. By end 2016, we would have in­vested €125 mil­lion to re­fur­bish 33 prop­er­ties in Europe. We will con­tinue to deepen As­cott’s growth in gate­way cities where we have pres­ence such as Paris, Lon­don, Ham­burg and Mu­nich, as well as ex­plore new op­por­tu­ni­ties to achieve As­cott’s tar­get of 80,000 apart­ment units glob­ally by 2020. We will ex­pand through ac­qui­si­tions of turnkey de­vel­op­ments or ex­ist­ing build­ings which we can con­vert into ser­viced res­i­dences, man­age­ment con­tracts and fran­chises.”
