The Peninsula Paris, Le Lobby
Having spent almost all of my Christmas with Peninsula when I was a kind, Peninsula hotel is a warm name to me. Not just because of their classic afternoon tea set in Tsim Sha Tsui, but their rich heritage and roots in Hong kong. As I have been living in London and constantly travelling, being able to find a place that warms me up and remind me of home is extremely rare.
The Peninsula Paris has definitely kept the simplistic but classic Peninsula interior with a touch of Parisian glamour. Situating in a historical building in Avenue Kleber in 16th arrondissement, it is a perfect location for any heavy shopper. All rooms and suites are inspired by Parisian heritage and chic, while maintaining a balance between traditional and innovative technology to enhance the hospitality experience. In the city of romance or patrissiere, there is no where like Peninsula.
Being a crazy foodie, restaurants in a hotel say a lot about its quality. Peninsula Paris has 6 restaurants, including a rooftop restaurant, looking over the stunning view of Eiffel Tower. But after all, the Lobby is what differentiates Peninsula from all other hotels. Every Peninsula around the world has the Lobby, which serves breakfast, lunch, and the famous afternoon tea. But what makes Le Lobby in Paris different is the meticulously Belle Epoque era decoration. I feel like a modern Marie Antoinette sampling my favourite vanilla and hazelnut chou.
