Just in time for this year's Valentine's Day getaway, a romantic boutique hotel has opened in Paris' prestigious 8th arrondissement. Boasting the iconic Le Bristol as its neighbours, you could say that the precedence in the area for luxury hospitality has been well and truly set. But despite being pitted against the heavy competition of the romantic city's already stellar hotel scene, La Réserve Paris is set to find a special place in the hearts of romantics (not to mention Romantics) everywhere.
Housed in a Hausmann-style mansion, the newcomer is described as an "hôtel particulier" which seems a perfect appellation for an establishment tucked away neatly between Avenue Montaigne and Faubourg Saint-Honoré. But it's with thanks to its admirably classic interiors and not its location that gives the hotel its true privacy.
