New luxury hotel group Maison Albar has opened a five-star property in Paris.
Maison Albar Hotel Paris Céline is located in the 1866-built former HQ of fashion house Céline on Rue du Pont-Neuf, in the city’s first arrondissement.
The boutique property has 60 rooms and suites starting from 20 sqm and offering free wifi, Apple TV and Nespresso machines.
Odette restaurant serves seasonal contemporary dishes from head chef Yannick Lahopgnou, who trained under three-Michelin starred chef Yannick Alléno at the city’s Hotel Le Meurice.
The property also has a spa with a pool and gym.
Maison Albar, a partnership between the Paris Inn Group and China’s Plateno Group, has another Paris property on Avenue Mac-Mahon, close to the Arc de Triomphe. It plans to open 100 five-star hotels worldwide by 2030.
Properties will have up to 100 rooms and combine “French elegance and the cultural imprint of the location”.
