  • U.S. News & World Report recently published their annual lists of top hotels around the world.
  • La Réserve Paris was ranked as the No. 1 hotel in Europe, followed by Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen and Hotel Eden in Rome.
  • The 40-room hotel opened in 2015, but has already received accolades due to its luxury suites, personalized amenities, and prime location.

La Réserve Paris Hotel & Spa is the best hotel in Europe.

U.S. News & World Report ranked the luxury hotel as the No. 1 hotel in Europe in this year's report. La Réserve Paris also previously received accolades from Condé Nast Traveller - including top hotel in Paris and Gold List status - along with a Trip Advisor five-star rating and Certificate of Excellence.

Located in the well-known eighth arrondissement of Paris, the hotel exudes old elegance but is barely four years old. While it is furnished with antique decor, modern amenities make the grand hotel a state-of-the-art stay. As many travelers remain interested in boutique hotels, La Réserve Paris offers luxury resort perks in a small setting.

The hotel offers a spa, a pool, and many impressive dining options: two luxury restaurants, a wine cellar, and a la carte service. There's also a hidden smoking room with a cigar chest, contributing to recent trends of hotels' secret luxuries.

La Réserve Paris is one of multiple properties of the French hotelier Michel Reybier's group, including La Réserve Genève in Switzerland and La Réserve Ramatuelle, also in France. For the Paris hotel and spa, Reybier once again enlisted the help of star designer Jacques Garcia.

The hotel also notably achieved palace distinction, a status introduced by Atout France, otherwise known as the France Tourism Development Agency. According to the agency's statement, certain five-star hotels deserve additional recognition. La Réserve Paris is the smallest of the current 25 palace hotels.
