Historical townhouse hotel a stone's throw from the Champs-Élysées, offering a refined, elegant experience of Paris

Whether it's your 1st or 5th time in the French capital, it doesn't get more special than a view of the Eiffel Tower from your private terrace. And if you're looking to be warmly welcomed, discreetly spoilt and generally charmed, you're in the right place. San Regis was once a private mansion, then a word-of-mouth hotel where Hollywood stars and the haute-couture set stayed. Run as a boutique hotel by the Georges Family since 1984, it has retained the exclusive, intimate atmosphere of its former days, along with personal yet immaculately professional service.

The 42 spacious bedrooms are dressed with stunning period furniture, antique portraits and Hermès wallpaper; marble bathrooms gleam. Downstairs, there's a quiet lounge bar for cocktails, and a elegant glass-roofed dining room. Should you wish to book museum tickets or reserve tables at a nearby Michelin-starred restaurant, the concierge will be happy to help. Classically Parisian in every way, and our favourite among the city's many prestige hotels.


  • An ideal location on a quiet residential street in the heart of the 'Golden Triangle' - walk to the Champs-Élysées, Grand Palais, even the Eiffel Tower
  • Or stroll down Avenue Montaigne, with its haute-couture boutiques
  • Chic and spacious bedrooms with marble bathrooms. Book a Terrace Junior Suite for views of the Eiffel Tower
  • A fantastic breakfast buffet
  • Close to the metro so you can zip all over the city with ease


  • Expensive, as is the area itself, and rates don't include breakfast
  • A limited restaurant menu but there's a wealth of great places to eat out in Paris - ask the concierge for help with choosing
  • No gym or spa

Best time to go

Wonderful in any season, Paris is busiest in early summer (May and June) and traditionally quieter in July and August, though it can be very hot then. Avoid fashion weeks in January, July and late September if you don't want to pay sky-high prices.

The 42 rooms and suites were individually designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, in a classic Parisian style. Period furniture sits alongside carefully chosen antiques, wood panelling and floral Hermès wallpaper; the overall effect is chic but comfortable.

A small mirrored lift goes up to the stunning Terrace Junior Suites on the top floor (you'll need to walk the last few stairs). These absolutely steal the show, with breathtaking views over the rooftops to the Eiffel Tower. If you're here for a special occasion, the splurge is worth every euro.

However, even the smallest rooms are generously proportioned - we were more than happy in a Deluxe - and the amenities are the same throughout. Spacious marble bathrooms house fluffy robes, slippers and a clutch of Hermès toiletries; cupboards are generous enough to hold the most extravagant wardrobe and light up when you open them.

Features include:

  • Bathrobes
  • Hairdryer
  • Minibar
  • Safe box

The glass-roofed Les Confidences restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the morning, choose from a breakfast menu of warm pastries, local cheeses and fresh fruit, along with fresh juice and coffee. Relax on elegant sofas and take your time.

At lunch, the restaurant is popular with locals and you'll find a buzz in the air. Come late afternoon, cocktails in the bar area are a great way to rest weary feet. Dinner is a limited a la carte menu. We enjoyed a veal dish very much, but were less keen on our cod and chorizo, finding it overly fussy.

The concierge can point you to excellent restaurants all over the city. We love L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Etoil on Champs Elysées, with its open kitchen and clever gastronomy based around local market produce.

  • Browse the designer boutiques and flagship stores along Avenue Montaigne: Dior, Celine, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and all the other big hitters. Or stroll along Champs Elysées, with its world-class shopping
  • The Grand Palais art gallery is a 5-minute stroll from the hotel and has a constantly changing array of exhibitions
  • Buy a Paris Museum pass and you'll be able to hop on and off the metro to visit all the famous names, including The Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay
  • The Arc de Triomphe is a 15-minute walk away, and the Eiffel Tower is a 35-minute stroll; stop en route for an espresso and spot of people-watching, a favourite local past-time
