Hotel de Paris: a Monegasque Legend

hotel de parisFinding an excellent hotel in which to stay when you are looking for property to buy in Monaco is fortunately not something that will pose too many problems.

For the Principality is littered with exceptional, five star hotels with literally thousands of spacious rooms to choose from, many of which enjoy breath-taking views over the Mediterranean Sea.

But perhaps the most famous address in the Principality – home to our exceptional portfolio of Monaco real estate for sale – is the legendary Hotel de Paris.

There are few sights as famous in Monaco as this grandiose hotel, which was built in 1864 in the privileged position of Place du Casino, opposite the equally renowned Casino de Monte Carlo.

The Hotel de Paris was built almost 150 years go to cater for the casino’s distinguished clientele  and offered the very best service at the time – which is just what the establishment does today.

In the 19th century there was of course little in the way of a benchmark to prove its excellent standards but the same cannot be said today, with the hotel winning a huge number of awards for its first-class service.

Recent accolades for the Hotel de Paris include the prestigious Villégiature “Grand Prize of the Best Hotel in Europe” in 2012 and the Number 1 Hotel in Southern Europe by Condé Nast Traveler in 2011.

It is sufficient just to stand outside this palatial hotel on your way to visit real estate for sale in Monaco, for example, to appreciate its charms. Built in the Belle Epoque style, the hotel is elegant and breathtakingly beautiful without being over the top.

Inside is another story. The Hotel de Paris boasts 182 rooms of which almost half are suites and junior suites, whilst two are Diamond Suites with more than 100 square metres of outside space with some of the best views over the Principality.

Equally impressive is the hotel’s tally of restaurants. Visitors are able to choose between the internationally renowned Le Louise XV Alain Ducasse and Le Grill – two exquisite restaurants serving exceptional cuisine. But that is not all; there is also the Côté Jardin , Le Bar Américain and La Salle Empire to tempt you after a hard day traipsing around property for sale in Monaco.

The Hotel de Paris also has one of the most extraordinary wine cellars in any hotel in the world, which is hollowed out of rock. Here you will find exceptional vintages such as Lafite, Dom Perignon and Cristal Roederer – just perfect for celebrating having the keys to your very own Monaco real estate.
