Paris’ rich 2000 year history has blessed it with an exceptional wealth of monuments, museums and a variety of different and distinct neighborhoods.
Prestigious and legendary, this capital city is the birthplace of French tradition, elegance and especially its famous art de vivre, an expression which needs no translation. These notions might appear abstract unless one pays a visit to the numerous quarters of Paris which embody these values. Certain Parisian streets represent the quintessence of luxury and art de vivre the prime example being the famous Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Once a simple passageway leading to the village of Roule, the street, as early as the 17th century, saw the birth of magnificent private mansions built by rich financiers. These superb dwellings bear the names of their illustrious owners. Some, like the hotel de Beauveau, which is now home to the Interior Ministry, has kept its original name.
The Buddha Bar, which has been part of Parisian night life since 1996, has already become a landmark, and its combination lounge-bar-restaurant has made it a legend thanks to its innovative way of representing French art de vivre. It was just a matter of time before the concept spread to the hotel industry, and in 2013, a boutique-hotel with 56 rooms of which 19 are suites opened and like the originality of the bar that preceded it, changed the hotel concept in the city. With its contemporary décor, a blend of Parisian charm and neo-Asian inspiration, the Buddha Bar Hotel is a stunning addition to the Paris hotel scene. Light years away from traditional hotel codes, we find ourselves in an exotic, timeless environment where touches of contemporary art create a charming counterpoint to the vivid colors of an exciting and very successful setting.
As soon as they arrive, guests are welcomed under of ceiling of red glass lanterns, an entrance that has become a “must see” in Paris. This five star establishment, bursting with character and personality, has already taken its place among the many luxury hotels on Paris’ famous right bank. The reception area is simple, sober and elegant. On the floor, there is a mosaic representing a dragon, the benevolent animal which is the leitmotif of the hotel.
The same animal-guardian, seen on the walls of all the floors, as well as striking yellow tones create a daring and powerful contrast with the original structure of the building, once a private 18th century mansion which still possesses its original staircase and boasts a perfect blend of different eras and genres.
The rooms are true to the neo-Asian spirit of the hotel complemented by an elegance directly inspired by the best in French tradition. The accommodations, havens of glamour and serenity, have burnt oak parquet floors, colorful silks and other precious materials giving them a timeless atmosphere, ideal for getting away from it all. The Gagny Suite, the crowning jewel of the hotel, had the honor of being awarded the prize for the most beautiful bathroom in Europe. This accolade is well deserved, and the rest of the suite more than lives up to this distinction.
The other emblematic venue comes as no surprise. The QU4TRE lounge-bar was elected the finest bar in Europe, thus rewarding a Japanese design and a cocktail menu that pays tribute to the four elements. This chic,trendy design bar, a must for lovers of the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, has become a reference in its category and like the hotel rooms, possesses a truly timeless and eternally stylish ambiance.
Before becoming the Buddha Bar Hotel, le building was the property of Augustin Blondel de Gagny, a financier and administrator to Louis XV. He was a passionate art lover whose large collection of 18th century paintings and sculptures were dispersed throughout the world.
