The 4-star Hôtel Maison Athénée is a typical Parisian property, located a few steps from the Place Vendôme and the Palais Garnier opera house. Its architecture and interior decoration personify what is known worldwide as "French elegance." 

The inimitable style of interior designer Jacques Garcia is present throughout, from the entrance hall through to the smoking room and the small lounge, which is often frequented by artists coming to relax after their performance at the nearby Olympia music hall. 

Rooms are inspired by the opera, with four themed areas paying homage to Faust, Aïda, La Traviata and Don Giovanni. The finishing touches are what make this hotel so special, from the elegant wooden furniture to the rich printed fabric on the headboards.

There is a breakfast buffet served in the lounge from 7-11 a.m. This can also be served in your room on request.

Great hotel in a fabulous area of Paris; staff at the hotel was first rate; included continental breakfast was outstanding; as an occasional cigar smoker, I loved the smoking lounge which also offered some fine whiskeys, ports and liqueurs. Go to this hotel if you want a boutique kind of a setting; only downside was the size of the room, typical for Paris; everything else was fantastic.

The hotel’s interior is very dark and gloomy with wood panelling, red flock wallpaper and yellowish lighting from shaded lamps. This lighting continues in the lift and in the bedrooms (even the bathroom, which is not ideal). There is also a smoking room in the basement & a strange odour permeates the public area, we wondered if maybe it was a chemical to remove the smell of smoke?
