The Prince de Galles is a luxurious art deco hotel centrally located on avenue George V in Paris. I love art deco and was thrilled to stay at this beautiful 5-star hotel during a business trip in January 2014.
REVIEW HOTEL PRINCE DE GALLES PARIS
The hotel is located next to the legendary hotel Georges V. It only takes you a few minutes to walk to the Champs-Élysées and to avenue Montaigne, the avenue of the luxury boutiques. You can easily walk to the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower.
The rooms and public areas were designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, one of the industry’s most in-demand interior designers, with the world’s leading luxury hotels queueing up for his services. My Art Deco Deluxe Room number 229 was spacious and calm. A large window filled the room with natural light. The bathroom with a shower and a bathtub displayed a mosaic with a brown background, which elegantly contrasted with the black tones of Saint Laurent marble.
The staff was very friendly and attentive. I was offered a bottle of champagne on my first evening.
I particularly liked the art deco bar Les Heures, where I had breakfast. The continental breakfast for 38 Euro doesn’t really correspond to the breakfast of a 5-star hotel. It includes a hot drink, an orange or grapefruit juice, butter, jam and a basket with bread rolls, pain aux raisins and pain au chocolat. Fresh fruit and a breakfast buffet like in other 5-star hotels would have been nice.
I had a very nice stay at the Prince de Galles and can really recommend it. Given the fact that the rooms are not 100% soundproof, I suggest that you book a room on the upper floor.
