The Lancaster, in rue de Berri, just off the Champs-Elysées in the heart of Paris, is one of Europe’s most charming hotels, with an undisputed reputation for impeccable standards and service. It was called ‘one of the last bastions of traditional hospitality in Paris’ by The Observer newspaper. It’s not all about tradition though. Recently done up by the same team behind Claridge’s in Dublin, The Lancaster is a hotel very much at ease with both its history and the very latest in style and technology.
The Lancaster has always been run like a luxurious private home, filled with a fascinating collection of furniture , antique clocks, paintings, chandeliers, lamps, tapestries, velvets, silk and damask, crystal and porcelain. Its courtyard, once the stables of the private house, is one of the prettiest in Paris.
