    La Maison Champs Elysées is a high class hotel in the centre of Paris. It’s location is ideal, just by the Champs Elysees. That means you can walk to most areas of the city and are only a short walk from a Metro station.

    This area is the centre of Paris's Golden Triangle which lies between the Champs-Elysées, Avenue Montaigne, the Grand Palais and the Place de la Concorde. It’s the perfect place to stay if you’re on a city break.

    It’s a 5-star designer hotel that oozes Parisian chic. Every room is decorated slightly differently but with an overall theme. The furniture and fittings are all complementary and of a high quality. There has obviously been a lot of time and money spent on this hotel and it shows.

    The exterior of the building couldn’t be anywhere but Paris. The light stone façade, black iron railings and Tricolour decorated the outside, along with a uniformed doorman. The lobby was impressive, a large space with high ceilings and two grand staircases going up the floors to the rooms.

    We had the White Cover Suite, which is a Couture Room. It certainly lived up to its name. It was almost completely white, white walls, soft furnishings, bedding, curtains, ceiling and furniture. What wasn’t naturally white was covered in a white linen cover, including the TV, Mac Mini, telephone and lamps. It’s a very interesting concept and one that works much better in practice than it sounds.

    “La Maison Champs Elysées is a quality product done very well.”

    The floor was light ash, offering a small contract to the rest of the room. There were pictures on the walls, but they were covered with the same white linen as the furniture. The bathroom was also completely white, which didn’t make such an impact for obvious reasons.

    The design of the room comes from the mind of fashion designer Martin Margiela. The concept is to provide a “zen-like” place for relaxation and dreaming. We must say, that with very little external sensory stimulation, it does allow the mind to wander somewhat.

    The bed was very comfortable indeed, with a firm mattress, goose feather quilt and lovely plump pillows. One might expect to have trouble getting to sleep in such a light room, but close the curtains and the room almost goes to sleep with you.

    The TV and technology are all well hidden, with a Mac Mini doing all the controlling. The white linen around the TV gave it an almost surreal look, as if the picture was floating in the air. It took a little getting used to.

    The rest of the hotel is just as impressive as already mentioned. The restaurant, La Table du 8, sits facing a courtyard garden with a wide glass wall and glass roof letting in an amazing quality of natural light. The tables and chairs are covered with the same white linen, with the silver cutlery being the only contrast point on the table.

    The White Lounge also lived up to its name, being covered in that white linen and featuring mirrors and clever lighting to deliver an impressive public space. The mirrors on the walls gave an infinity effect that made the entire room look as though it went on for miles, a neat trick.

    La Maison Champs Elysées is a quality product done very well. It’s a delight to be in and around and provided us with a very enjoyable experience. It’s an experience that simply writing about doesn’t do justice and we would happily return again.
