Famous for its café culture, rich cultural heritage and some of the most renowned sightseeing destinations in the world, Paris is boldly romantic − a traveller’s dream.

A perfect example of the famous French elegance, Hotel Keppler captures the spirit of the city of Paris in all its splendour.
Set in a Haussmannian building dating back to the 19*th* century, Hotel Keppler offers 39 charming guest rooms including five suites in a style that blends cutting-edge design with the elegant sophistication that France is so known and loved for.

The Classic Rooms are fitted with French double beds, offering just enough space to comfortably relax and work during your stay without impeding free space. The Standard Rooms weave touches of cranberry or sun-yellow into the black and white décor and are fitted with queen beds, custom-designed for extreme comfort.
The hotel’s Executive Rooms have been designed to feel spacious and comfortable without compromising on the extreme elegance that Hotel Keppler is renowned for. These rooms feature king or twin beds and a beautiful bathroom with mirror TV and Hermès amenities.

The rooms feature luxurious cotton linen, plush down duvet, high definition LED TV, mini-bar, and complimentary high-speed WiFi. The hotel offers four suite options; Traditional, Superior, Deluxe and the Penthouse suite. All the top floor suites are reminiscent of private apartments – intimate and homelike, with superb terraces or balconies overlooking Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The shining dark wood floors, handmade Turkish rugs, moulded ceilings and custom-designed furniture all come together perfectly, culminating in a space that oozes sophistication and charm. The luxury at Hotel Keppler is truly limitless.
