From the moment we arrived, walking into the Hotel Athenee was like walking into an oasis off the bustling Parisienne streets.
The staff were immediately warm and welcoming taking care of our every need.
We arrived a few hours before check in and were directed to a small brasserie for lunch, 'Le Mondial'. We rolled back to the hotel three hours later (and a few grand cru Bordeaux's later) to be shown to our plush albeit compact bijou of a room (Superior Double). Like all Paris hotel rooms, space was not in abundance, however the luxury fittings, Hermes toiletries and absolutely amazing bath and shower more than made up for it.
Indeed throughout the hotel the decor exuded luxury and opulence in a bohemian and a muted calm of a yesteryear Paris.
On our last night in Paris (my partner's birthday), we really wanted seats at a show that was booked out far in advance, but despite this they were able to make a phone call and not only get tickets, but went all the way and arranged VIP tickets for us, concierge at its best!
Arriving back at 3am for cocktails to be served to us in the room was the cherry on the cake.
We will definitely return to this hotel in the future and would highly recommend this hotel to couples who are in Paris for a romantic break and want to experience a real feel Paris hotel.
