Elaborate, stylish décor in a 19th-century building make for an elegant stay.
Housed in a 19th-century Haussmann building, the Keppler was designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, who presided over the redesign of the posh Hotel George V in Paris and the Peninsula in Shanghai. The lobby embraces animal-themed details, such as iron dog statues, cheetah-patterned pillows, and stools topped with a zebra-print design, and includes several sitting areas for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. This stylish vibe continues throughout the public spaces and rooms, making for an upscale, elegant feel. With a quiet, sophisticated vibe, this boutique hotel largely attracts couples.
