Pierre-Yves Rochon was set loose on this handsome private residence and he created the Hotel Keppler, Paris – a chic, boutique escape in the French capital’s Champs-Élysées district.
Monochrome chic is how we’d describe the design philosophy of the Hotel Keppler, Paris. As self-labelled fashionistas with a limited colour palette of black and white ourselves, we blended right in. Little pops of colour in each room kept surprising us though, a reminder to expect the unexpected from this property.
This contemporary hotel is set in a former mansion that occupied 10 Rue Kepler, but all that remains of its past is the Haussmann-style building and the name. The renovation of this magnificent building was entrusted to Pierre-Yves Rochon who went on to transform the former residence into a luxury boutique hotel. It’s elegant yet cosy and space is utilised to the hotel’s advantage, featuring a series of lounges and salons where we spent the evenings relaxing and sipping champagne.
The Hotel Keppler Paris has just 34 rooms and five suites, reminiscent of private apartments – intimate and homely. Our suite had a superb terrace overlooking the city and of course, the Eiffel Tower – the perfect Parisian vista. Back on ground zero, you’re just a short walk from the Arc de Triomphe and an easy connection to the magic that Paris has to offer. Ooh là là!

While you’re Out There
Here at the Champs-Élysées, shopping is all the rage. However, with retail internationalism and big-brand stores taking over, there’s not much you can’t find in any other big city in the world. For a ‘French’ flavour, if you’re picking out an outfit for a night out in Paris, pop into Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées, who is shaking up the conventional notions of a concept store, but on the scale of a department store. Their exclusive personal-shopper experience will have you decked out on some gorgeous glad-rags in no time.
