Choose the luxurious Hôtel de Berri
The interior of Hôtel de Berri is daringly innovative – think sassy leopard-print chairs juxtaposed with classy marble columns – which is perhaps unsurprising, considering that it was once owned by the avant-garde fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. The stylish decor is enhanced by a private art collection dating back to the 1900s, and there are decorative stone busts at every turn. But it’s the hotel’s spa that is the ultimate highlight, with its two Carita treatment rooms and a pair of hammams, one of which is exclusively for women. Outside, a private park lined with century-old trees provides a vestige of calm. For the more active, the fitness centre is open 24 hours a day and is equipped with state-of-the-art weightlifting and Technogym machines.
