Hotel Castille Paris: Italian Charm in the Heart of Paris
Prepare to discover the ambiance of Italy residing in the very heart of Paris. Set on Rue Cambon in the 1st arrondissement, enter Castille Paris – Starhotels Collezione and become transported into elegance and refinement that is uniquely Italian. While the location is definitively French, with Maison Chanel next door, and Place de la Concorde, la Madeleine and Place Vendôme mere minutes away, this Italian owned five-star hotel remains in a class of its own. Imbued with Italian flair and French charm, the décor of Castille Paris presents a myriad of bold colors, with antique paintings and eclectic furniture defining the welcoming reception and lobby. Keep an eye out for the hotel’s adorable mascot, a Chartreux cat named Heliot. The 82 rooms and 26 suites each exude modern refinement while highlighting classic details. The Dolce Vita Apartment will offer just that, la dolce vita, boasting a lavish 80m2 space with two well-appointed bedrooms. The Duplex Suites are outfitted in classic or contemporary style and prove just how much Castille Paris will feel like home. Even the smaller Superior rooms prove luxurious. The Italian soul of Castille Paris is found and savored at their restaurant L’Assaggio. Since June 2017, Michelin-starred Chef Ugo Alciati creates the refined menu along with Executive Chef Pablo Sabariego and his team. Piedmontese specialties crafted with select seasonal ingredients are among the dishes, including “Vitello Tonnato”, one of Ugo Alciati’s most renowned recipes. Come truffle season, discover La Truffe Blanche D’Alba, a decadent tasting menu where truffles adorn the plates and tantalize your palate in ample measure. Weather permitting, dine al fresco in the outdoor courtyard overlooking a Roman fountain and decorative frescoes. The gastronomic dining experience at L’Assaggio is reason enough to visit Castille Paris. Castille Paris 33-37 Rue Cambon, 75001 +33 (0)1 44 58 44 58 Rooms from 235 euros.
