Christmas time is coming and with the cold season, comes an amazing excuse to plan a trip to the french capital, perhaps with your better-half, for a romantic weekend in the streets covered in snow. In that case, when wondering where to stay in Paris, you may want to consider the Nolinski Hotel designed by Jean-Louis Deniot, one of the best luxury hotels in the city.
Located on the avenue de l’Opéra, in Paris, right next to Palais Royal, the 5-star hotel (part of the group Evok Collection) offers 45 rooms and suites in the purest Haussmann style, sprinkled with art deco in a very couture spirit. You can expect beautiful hotel interiors and comfortable accommodations.
A minimalist reception made from Carrara marble bears the hallmark eclectic refinement of decorator Jean-Louis Deniot, while emerald green, gold, bronze and tweed define the overall hotel design.
The style of the designer is a statement in the overall decor. Hues of blue and emerald green, precious materials and custom-made furniture and furnishings intertwine to orchestrate a lyrical and harmonious ensemble.
Throughout the design, Jean-Louis Deniot reinvents traditional materials and their application, such as wood paneling, using blackened oak panels with abstract paintings and cubist-inspired tiling in the Réjane Brasserie. The architecture, lighting, and detailing within the restaurant produce differing experiences within the space. Geometric lights provide a soft ambiance in the cozy, intimate booths, while brass and painted mirrors embellish the lively bar, and planted bronze flowers provide a whimsical yet refreshing atmosphere in the winter garden greenhouse.
On the other hand, the Grand Salon invites House guests and regulars to relax in the room’s swivel armchairs around its bronze fireplace and under a silver leaf ceiling.
Distributed over six floors, the intimate charm of single rooms and connecting rooms is an invitation to a haven of peace, with windows overlooking the heart of Paris. Green, raspberry, beige, blue, yellow, and fawn, each private room reveals its own color scheme to enhance the harmony of grays and waxed concrete. A lacquered wardrobe watches over an elegant desk, bearing sculptural and ceramic souvenirs from its travels in faraway lands, alongside the custom-made furniture.
In the basement, the candle-lit spa by La Colline draws guests into an otherworldly ambience. Dark and restful, the pool, a cool slab of still water, reflects in the mirrored ceiling while a backlit panel evokes swaying tree tops.
