The hotel Athenee combines elegance and luxury, intimacy and exuberance in the heart of Paris and one of the most sought after part of the City of Lights: The Opera district.
The famous designer Jacques Garcia inspired himself with the authentic spirit that reigns in the area and signed a charming and exceptional boutique hotel
based on four of the most renowned lyric tragedies of the opera.
is a perfect reflection of what operas inspires : romanticism, lyricism, passion, hope but also nostalgia and fate. Faust, Aida, the Traviata and Don Giovanni inspired the designer and he succeeded in expressing the atmosphere of these masterpieces in his latest creation, the Hotel Athenee
When you enter the hotel Athenee
, it looks like a small opera. Scarlet colors, fringed velvet chairs and sofa, columns, pictures and large mirrors on both sides, sumptuous materials, heavy fabrics, walls and floor in marble,…
In the back side of this scene, you can discover the Red Bar with its cosy lounge and authentic autographed photos of famous opera singers. Relaxing in precious velvet couches with fine-fabric cushions, you can enjoy a romantic drink or share it with friends or business partners up to late in the night.
In the morning, the lounge becomes the place where you can take a delicious breakfast except if you prefer enjoy it in your room.

I use to go in luxury hotels of large chains. At the Athenee, the quality of the welcome is exceptional compared to what you can see in those hotel chains.
The hotel is completely new such as the decoration and equipment (bedding, bathroom,...) I'll go back for a week-end with my wife for a romantic stay.
