Just off the Champs-Elysées and close to the Arc de Triomphe, Hotel Balzac Paris is one of the most outstanding deluxe boutique hotels in Paris’ 8th arrondissement. Moments from both Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V, the luxury five-star hotel sits grandly on the famous Rue Balzac and is perfectly located for the very best Paris has to offer.
Built for the director of the Paris Opera in the 19th century, the hotel boasts a rich history and has been immortalised in fiction by a selection of the world’s finest writers. Completed at the turn of the 19th century it has served as an exotic private residence, a salon for epicureans and Champagne lovers… and was even owned by the great novelist Honoré de Balzac – who spent his final days there.
A haven of peace and a shining example of Parisian chic, the luxury Paris hotel, is a blend of the elegant and the modern. The 13 suites and 56 rooms at the hotel are sublimely decorated by Anne-Marie Sabatier, and mix a neo-classical style with rich colours, fabrics and contemporary furnishings. Some of the rooms, including the Royal Suite, exhibit stunning views of the Eiffel Tower and across Paris.
Hotel Balzac has been home to the world renowned chef, Pierre Gagnaire, for the past fifteen years. Here the flagship restaurant bearing his name serves up three Michelin Star modern French cuisine, and is recognised as the standard bearer for iconic, fusion cooking the world over.
Travelling to the hotel could not be simpler: it is just 40 minutes from Roissy Charles de Gaulle International Airport; two minutes from George V or Charles de Gaulles Etoile Metro stations; and just three stops on the RER from Gare du Nord and the Eurostar trains to London.
Hotel Balzac is a taste of classic Paris that simply cannot be bettered.
