Everytime I visit the city, it feels like I get to know it a little more, but I also realize that there are still so many beyond beautiful and breath-taking things I haven’t seen so far. This also applies to hotels. I have stayed in quite a few in Paris and they never fail to impress me with their French chic and their grandiosity. This time I was craving something different though. I knew that Paris still had something up its leave to blow me away and of course it didn’t disappoint.
I stayed at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris this time whose name might surprise you at first. It doesn’t sound like the typical je ne sais quoi French hotel name and this might have you guessing that the hotel opened up a different world and a different Paris to me. Located on the one and only Rue Faubourg St Honoré, the hotel has the perfect location for fashion-related travels. The mixture of cutting-edge boutique hotel with a super unique, creative setting and traditional 5-star Parisian luxury was something I have never encountered before.
You walk into a historic French building and as soon as you reach the reception, you find yourself in the middle of South East Asia. You enter the beautiful, elegant garden and will be served the most exclusive tea selection all over Paris. You discover your spacious room for the first time and it feels like a scavenger hunt for unique details, special furnishing and the little extras that you cannot find at any other hotel I have stayed at so far.
The most remarkable experience at the Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris was the welcoming and warm-hearted staff. Whether at the reception, restaurant or in the room itself – I have rarely received such attentive, and friendly service. For me, this is one of the most important aspects about a hotel and fairly hard to find in Paris. The Buddha Bar Hotel really is a voyage within a voyage and whisks you away in the midst of Paris to take you on a meditative journey to beautiful Asia. I cannot wait to be back at this beautiful place, sit in the atrium and enjoy a lovely cup of green tea. https://www.buddhabarhotelparis.com/
