There is no shortage of world-class hotels from which to choose in the great city of Paris, which is why La Reserve’s distinctiveness is all the more remarkable.

Setting Mid-way between Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Avenue Montaigne, a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées, where the heart of Paris beats.
Style Michel Reybier’s unique urban mansion has all the elegance of a 19th-century private apartment, where ultra-personalized services can be enjoyed in complete simplicity and discretion.

La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa is an Haussmann-style urban mansion built in 1854. The decor enshrines the essence of Parisian chic and a peerless style legacy. Here and there, beautiful marble fireplaces and everywhere the joy of huge indoor spaces, typical of early 19th-century Haussmann apartments. The architectural interiors are reminiscent of the traditional canons of the era and provide an exclusive setting in which the French art of living is experienced in intimacy and simplicity. The 25 suites and 15 rooms area refined reflection of quintessential 19th century Parisian chic. Think: silk hung walls, damascene brocade and taffeta drapes, waffle weave fabrics, herringbone oak parquet, unique pieces of antique furniture.

Le Gabriel restaurant borrows culinary inspiration from all over the world, to offer an exquisite take on the great classics. The 2016 Michelin Guide for France has awarded two stars barely a year after the restaurant opened, an amazing token of recognition for the cuisine of its Executive Chef Jérôme Banctel.

In the spa, Nescens, the Swiss anti-aging science brand offers an exclusive range of treatments for men and women.
