Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa, the quintessence of luxury nestling between the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides, is close to the storied banks of the Seine, with some of the most majestic buildings in Paris at its feet.
The very recently inaugurated 5-star hotel and spa casts its benign gaze over the city from its terraces and broad windows beneath the overarching sky.
It is an exceptional gaze, which is also perceptible on the inside, an aura vibrant with history, a true home-from-home for sampling the very best of the unique Paris lifestyle and philosophy, offering the ultimate in service.


The romantic figure of Cléo de Mérode has shaped the genius loci. Cléo was a ballet dancer and the first photographic It Girl of the twentieth century, immortalized by none other than Nadar, Degas, Falguière and Proust, to name but a few. Hints of the mystery in which she shrouded her private life, and of her delicate free spirit, can be found throughout the hotel.
Behind its aristocratic Haussmann façade Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa, the epitome of discreet hospitality, enfolds an enlightened alliance of Olympian volumes and understated refinement, magnificent high ceilings, and intimate nooks.
The beauty whom composer Reynaldo Hahn loved to call his “pretty little narcissus” also inspired the atmospheric portraits that adorn the interior with the timelessness of purebred classicism. Back in the day, the celebrated Paris Universal Expositions, distillations of contemporary style and optimism, were held close by, as testified to this day by the Alexandre III Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, the Trocadéro, and the Grand Palais. Today, the surrounding neighbourhood boasts elegant fine dining and breathtaking walks. Between the two, Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa promises the best of both worlds.


A contemporary pleasure dome where guests can enjoy the insouciance of true luxury, forget passing time, and leave the world on the doorstep, Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa lavishes the ultimate in service and pampering on its guests, making Paris the true City of Dreams. With the added luxuries of heaven-sent peace and quiet and a concierge to fulfil every desire.
To all this, add the privilege of cosy sitting rooms and discreet terrace gardens that can be privatized; a picture-perfect, enchanted Spa with its own 13-metre swim-in-place pool, hydrotherapy massage jets, and elegant ivory poolside loungers for soaking up the spa’s charismatic sensuousness and wellbeing, rounded out with a sauna, hammam, fitness centre, massage, and Carita spa treatments.


Savour the height of glamour clothed in the finest fabrics, from tweed to velvet, duchesse satin, burnout, silk faille, and dappled rugs, all subtly combined in a couture mix of restful grey-beige, cream, champagne, sand, ash, and powdered rose.



The owners turned to designers, working with interior decorators Thierry Martin and Thibaut Fron, to bring Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa to full bloom. The quartet has created 37 spacious bedrooms, including seven suites, some with fireplaces, others giving on to their own terrace garden, or offering the rare pleasure of breathtaking views of the City of Light.


All rooms and suites are furnished with a distinctive, uncluttered classism in refined colour schemes reflecting an enlightened taste: here an armchair with distinctive Art Nouveau curves, there a Deco arabesque or the contemporary lines of a brass table lamp. Elsewhere, you may come across the unexpected charm of a delicate pearl moulding, a cloud of narcissi, delicate scrolling. All is perfect harmony, everything is in the detail. There is not a hint of ostentation at Le Narcisse Blanc hotel-spa. Such perfect, cultivated luxury suffices unto itself.
