Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe hotel – pure Parisian chic

Paris-Luxury-Hotel-Sofitel-Adelto-05

The Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe is an elegant and modern hotel that expresses the quintessence of the art of living behind a beautiful Haussmannian façade, a mere stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées. 

Architectural practice The Studio Putman has designed an oh-so Parisian style for the hotel, like a pied-à-terre, based on soft, soothing colours, simple, basic lines and a subtle interplay of materials.

At the Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, the very concept of the hotel room, especially the space’s function, has been rethought based on a new concept of layout of volumes that updates traditional luxury hotel codes. The key to this concept lies in the spaces’ modular nature, allowing you to feel at home and live as you see fit, choosing privacy or sharing, walls or openness.

A soothing sense of wellbeing reassures you as soon as you walk in. The soft colours and attention to materials offer a haven of peace in the heart of bustling Paris. A parquet floor brings Haussmannian interiors to mind. You are greeted by epigrams by Andrée Putman on pearl grey walls, such as: “Being modern doesn’t mean being trendy. Trends go out of style. Modernity never does because it is a founding principle.”

The room’s design is based on two main ideas: rest and wellbeing. The former echoes sleep, which finds its truest expression in MyBed, Sofitel’s exclusive bedding concept. In the centre of the room, the bed rests against an immaculate cotton sheer headboard flanked by two luminous cubes that give off a soothing blue glow at bedtime.

The 124-room Paris hotel is only one hour from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and offers a grocery store-canteen concept by Da Rosa, fitness centre and an intimate restaurant offering modern French cuisine.
