After it’s €26 million facelift, The Snobby Runway takes a look inside Ascott’s new luxurious Citadines Suites Arc de Triomphe on the prestigious Avenue Kléber in Paris.
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.
