On arrival
Easily spotted on the famous Avenue de l’Opéra by its cleverly clipped shrubs and enormous lights, the entrance to the Edouard VII hotel opens into a circular room from which radiate access to all parts of the building.

It is therefore easy to find concierge services, reception and all floors as well as  the Internet area, lounge and the breakfast room.

Lit by a Murano chandelier that hangs above an interesting wood carving by Nicolas Cesbron, the foyer is furnished with several oriental pieces of furniture and mosaics. The essence of the hotel can be summed up in this room: partly traditional, partly modern with a leaning towards the exotic and unusual.

Staff are quite young, enthusiastic about the hotel and speak several languages including Russian and Japanese. The size of the hotel is a good compromise: large enough to provide a full concierge service, housekeeper, round-the-clock luggage handler and 24-hour room service but small enough to get to know its guests.

The bar and breakfast room are the most modern areas in the hotel. The atmosphere in the bar is quiet and, while enjoying its comfortable armchairs, fabrics in leather and velvet, stained glass windows, plain carpets and woodwork, you can also eat lunch and dinner there.  The restaurant, a circular room at one end of the hotel is much brighter and lighter. Breakfast is available here on a self-service basis.

The rooms
The hotel’s 70 bedrooms spread over seven floors benefit from Haussmann’s generous ideas of room design. The decor of the recently-refurbished rooms alternates between restrained and exuberant.

Restrained by the use of Empire-style furniture, traditional fabric-clad walls, traditional paintings and the geometric shapes of modern lighting. Exuberance is provided by the piles of cushions in warm colours, the elaborate and almost unimaginable tester beds and the variety of fabrics in a riotous mix of design and colours.

The first rooms to have been refurbished are the most traditional but, like the others, the craftsmanship of the make-over is undeniable. Bathrooms are spacious, mostly in an art deco style with beige and brown tiles. Largest rooms have a bath and separate shower as well as a separate toilet.

Rooms overlooking Rue d’Antin are less noisy than those overlooking Avenue de l’Opéra in spite of the soundproofing that has attempted to correct the difference. On the other hand the balconies of the rooms overlooking the avenue provide a beautiful view of the golden statues and bronze domes of the nearby Opéra Garnier. The humming of traffic passing the hotel then gives the impression to take a piece of Paris vibrant energy.

The largest suites are strategically placed at the corners of the building, have views to two sides, and are particularly light and airy.
