In the heart of the French capital, tucked between the Palais Garnier opera house and the famous Rue Saint-Honoré, the newly opened Nolinski Paris hotel is just moments from the Louvre and Palais-Royal gardens.

Designed by Jean-Louis Deniot, the chic hotel represents a dramatic mix of playful textures, eclectic patterns and pieces from different periods. Blending contemporary aesthetics with classical prestige, each of the hotel’s 45 light-flooded rooms and suites — spread across six floors connected by a sweeping staircase — features its own colour scheme: bold pops of raspberry or peppermint bringing soft greys to life, accented with striking wall art, butter-soft bed throws, and Neoclassical wood panelling. The room to book is the luxurious Suite Joséphine, with floor-length windows, low-slung sofas, contemporary art and a balcony overlooking the Avenue de l’Opéra.

Locals and guests rub shoulders at Brasserie Réjane, a traditional French brasserie with a modern twist, serving Parisian specialities like moules au beurre persillé or tartare de boeuf to the post-theatre crowd, or, come morning, croissants and café au lait to visitors en route to the nearby museums. After a day’s strolling the city’s iconic tree-lined boulevards, guests can rest their aching feet in Nolinski Paris’s Grand Salon, sinking into turquoise velvet armchairs, with a drink in hand. The atmospheric space is dominated by a bronze fireplace, wall coverings by Florence Girette, a silver leaf-clad ceiling and a grand piano.

Once guests have had their fill of the City of Light’s charms, they can unwind in the Spa Nolinski by La Colline. An abstract landscape is splashed across a wall that runs the length of the torch-lit swimming pool, while a smattering of Louis XIV armchairs and sofas flank the water’s edge. After a session with a personal trainer in the gym or outdoors in the neighbouring gardens of the Louvre Museum, guests can turn the heat up on weary limbs in the hammam and sauna, or book in for a massage, facial or, perhaps, an oxygenating and revitalising treatment at one of the three massage huts.
