Paris' upmarket 8th arrondissement, home to many of the city's landmarks, is the setting for the Hotel Chateaubriand, located on the edge of the high-end 'Golden Triangle' shopping district. Set amidst elegant properties on a cobbled street, the hotel occupies a stately 19th-century building lined with wrought iron balconies, and is a short stroll from renowned Avenue des Champs-Élysées, running between the sprawling Louvre Museum and the landmark Arc de Triomphe. The nearest metro station George V, is a 3-minute walk away and links directly to bustling hub Place de la Concorde, the elegant Tuileries Gardens and the Le Marais district, known for its art galleries and quirky boutiques. The Eiffel Tower takes about 30 minutes to reach on foot, whilst the Centre Pompidou and Notre Dame de Paris cathedral are around a 25-minute taxi ride from the hotel.
Hotel Chateaubriand’s refined exterior opens to an eclectic entrance way decorated in bold red with a grand gilt mirror and a stone Buddha. There’s a cosy salon with floral wallpaper, leather-backed sofas and a bookcase, as well as a wood-floored lobby lounge with plush seating. Guests can start the day with a buffet breakfast either in the colourful downstairs dining area or on the stone patio with its dramatic chandelier and spiral staircase.
Guestrooms pick up on the classic feel of the hotel with richly patterned fabrics and antique-inspired furnishings, and include free Wi-Fi, TVs, air-conditioning and mini bars. Higher tariff rooms add sitting areas. Room service is available.
