My husband and I have recently spent our wedding night at Hotel Daniel and we can't find a adjective strong enough to describe our happiness.
We are hotel lovers traveling around the world to experience the best hotels and I have to confess we had an average opinion about Paris hotel scene but our stay in this small and ultra romantic property proved there are still a few secret hidden in the french capital.
Nestled in the heart of the exclusive 8th district, at just a few steps from Champs Elysees and Faubourg St Honore but far away from the bustle and hustle, Hotel Daniel is an enclave of elegance, style and charm. With just 26 rooms and suites, this small property is extremely well decorated and incredibly warm. Every corner is a true pleasure for eyes. Designed like a friend's house with inspiration for the art of "chinoiserie" and blending oriental influences, you will feel immediately like in your home away from home. We both found the decoration highly inspiring and so refined helping your mind to escape to an other world where everything is just wonderful.
Right you arrive in front of this haussmanian building with perfectly flowery balcony and the blue flag of Relais&Chateaux, synonymous with elegance and style, you know immediately that you will have an outstanding moment in this place.
We arrived in a very lovely lounge where having a cup of tea with a delicious pastry from "La patisserie des reves by Philippe Conticini" is a not to be missed experience and have been welcomed by the most adorable team ever.
It's more and more hard to find a perfect service in France where it's often a bit pretentious but at Hotel Daniel, this is more a kind of family than an hotel team, all working with heart, passion and this incredible desire to make all the guests so special and happy. Since we were celebrating a very special moment of our life, the ultra attentive GM Cecile Croisard arranged an upgrade and a bottle of pink Champagne and we have even been able to choose our suite. What an incredible gesture of attentiveness and kindness. We will never forget.
We consequently stayed on the 5th floor in Suite Daniel (#502), a superb 40 sq. meters "home" beautifully decorated and ultra comfortable. It's actually hard to find an hotel where we had the feeling to be in our own little apartment in Paris. Designed with beautiful pieces of furniture, this suite offers as well a "parisian" balcony with lovely rooftop view. It's incredibly charming and we just wanted not to go out just to extend this moment of happiness a little longer but we had to go to our wedding and bathroom was large enough to get ready for the event. Sleeping quality was unique as well with a perfect soundproofing, an efficient air conditioning system and an ultra-comfortable bed for a dreamy night. For those who want to stay connected, WIFI is available for free and it works really well and two TVs with tens of TV channels are enough to entertain...
But what we loved so much as well is breakfast... This is something so important but often neglected. We decided to order American breakfast and it was an affair with the most delicious breads and pastries ever, an omelet filled with your preference and cooked to perfection, freshly squeezed juice, artisan cheeses and farm produced yogurts, homemade fruit salad... And far better than a waiter just delivering a tray, the very discreet employee perfectly dressed a table on the balcony for us for an irresistible moment of delicacy and let's say it was so romantic to start the day on this way. Perfect really...
Our stay was definitively too short to fully explore this hotel but we experienced enough to conclude that this is one of the latest ultra romantic place in Paris where you will be pampered like nowhere else. We are very picky about where we stay and we can ensure all travelers that Hotel Daniel is a true "gem", a place where people have the best definition of what means "hospitality" and an irresistible design we just adored.
Don't hesitate... choose Hotel Daniel (which is even not expensive) and you will know what means EXCEPTIONNAL. Can't wait to return...
