Built in 1896 as the home of Prince Roland Bonaparte - Napoleon Bonaparte's grandnephew - Shangri-La Hotel, Paris is situated in the elegant 16th arrondissement of Paris.
Restored by architect Richard Martinet, Pierre-Yves Rochon was in charge of interior design.
Rooms have fantastics views, but the most amazing view is from "Shangri-La suite" in the penthouse, with a private terrace.
Special mention for the Shangri-La suite:
I really liked the "daisy" ceiling lamp and the tabs, in Bernardaud china and white gold.
But details make luxury.
From the terrace you have the feeling that Eiffel tower belongs to you.
You think about nothing.
You just see.
You just enjoy, stunned.
Come and VISIT WITH ME one of the most exclusives hotels in the world!
