Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg and shopping streets of Paris
Saturday, October 1, 2016
On the way back from the Notre Damme I wanted to visit the Christian Loubutin boutique to finally find my size 41 sling back heels, which are not available in Dubai. I went to the famous shopping street Saint Honore, where all the fashion boutiques situated. I couldn’t even imagine that on Sunday all the shops are closed! Sunday is off in Europe 🙁 I completely forgot. This not Dubai, with malls open 7 days a week, from 10 am till 10pm. Here the opening hours are 10:30 till 19:00 from Monday to Saturday. What a bad luck.
I continued my way to the Sofitel Le Faubourg Hotel
It is located on the very quiet street Bossy d’Anglais, right at the corner of the Saint Honore street. The location of the hotel is unique for shopping at the all the boutiques plus the major sight of Paris as Louvre, Grand Palais, Tuileries Gardens are also in a very close proximity.
This Sofitel is posh
The interior of the hotel is made by the luxury interior designer Didier Gomez, who is known for his interior collaborations for hotels, shops, corporate offices for such companies as LVMH, Cartier, Celine, Christian Dior, De Beers and others.
The staff of the hotel was very welcoming and polite.
There is a fine dining restaurant STAY from the Michelin starred chef Yannic Alleno, with a terrace and bar.
Right in front of the hotel there is the famous Buddha Bar Paris, which was closed in the afternoon. Next time I should come to visit it in the evening, to compare with the Buddha Bar in Dubai.
I continued my way to the Avenue de Montagine – another famous street of Paris. All the high fashion boutiques are situated here as well.
The Dior boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne was established in 1946
The three – storey Louis Vuitton boutique was open on Sunday, so I had a chance to visit it
On the other side of the street, right opposite to the Louis Vuitton there is a magnificent hotel – Plaza Athene, opened its doors in 1913. This luxury property in classical French style was a winner of the World Luxury Hotel Award in 2015. The full story about my visit to this hotel and more picture you can find HERE
