The Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, a unique blend of Asian charm and French art de vivre
The Palais Iéna’s historical significance and the breathtaking views of this palace are the singular aspects that make Shangri-La Paris the city’s most extraordinary luxury hotel.
An outstanding historical significance
In 1896, the “Palais d’Iéna” was the home of Prince Roland Bonaparte and the meeting place of Paris’ aristocracy. In 2011, this place was restored by the well-known architect Richard Martinet and the luxury address welcomes, once again, the great people of the world as Shangri-La Hotel, Paris — the first Shangri-La Hotel to open in Europe.
The Shangri-La’s meticulous restoration of the property returned the Bonaparte rooms to their former glory. Gold leaf mosaics, bronze wall reliefs of Napoleon and elaborate wall and ceiling murals make this place feel like any other museum in the city. Listed as a Historical Monument since 2009, this exquisite hotel is a unique blend of Asian hospitality and French art de vivre.
