The Hôtel Daniel itself has a splendid kitchen, with some very innovative food; however, if heading further afield, walk no further than the multi-Michelin-starred Apicius (www.restaurant-apicius.com) – just across from the hotel – for fine dining in a unique setting. After dinner, you can head to William's Cocktail Bar on Avenue de Friedland for a cool, laid-back vibe.

This is perhaps my favourite Smith Hotel in Paris. Nearby, Le Forum (www.bar-le-forum.com) on Boulevard Malesherbes, is a must visit bar with a discrete gentlemen’s club feel about it. For dinner, Granterroirs (www.granterroirs.com) on Rue de Miromesnil is a fine option, with hearty, tasty French food.

My wife and I booked the Daniel to celebrate a landmark anniversary and it did not let us down. The welcome and subsequent service combined just the right level of prompt but unobtrusive attention to detail. Having spent twenty odd years living in and working across Asia it was a delight to find the numerous reminders of our time there without the trappings of a large corporate hotel. Our suite, while small combined great comfort and individual styling. The Daniel's location is ideal for a Parisian break and we certainly intend to use it again before too long.

So Parisian, close to the Champs Elysee. This was my second visit and it was just as memorable as the first. Walking distance to everthing, go for a stroll down Rue Saint-Honoré and drop into the super groovy Hotel Costes for a drink or meal.

Aside from the amazing Hotel Daniel, we were recommended a Chinese restaurant called Diep, on the other side of the Champs Elysees. It is expensive (about £80 for two) but the food was amazing: really fresh and cooked perfectly. I'd recommend anyone to go there if you've got time!

What a fantastic Hotel , the position was perfect.
We loved our upgrade , to a loft Suite, due to our arrival time of 4.30pm we were starving ( even tho it was 35degree's ) The porter suggested a restaurant. The Golden View, which was right on the river, and became our favorite dinner place. The Hotel's Restaurant was amazing , just like the hotel and staff.

Apart from the beautiful rooms, helpful staff and great location one of the best parts of this hotel is the breakfast - so make sure you get it included in your package. A beautiful pastry basket with real French butter, almost too rich hot chocolates and hot food made fresh to order - you won't need lunch.

So what to do in Paris on a Sunday? If you are tired of following the tourist trail, and sick of handbag pooches nipping your ankles in Saint Germain, there is no better way to spend a Sunday in Paris than browsing the Marais – most of the cute boutiques are open, whilst the rest of the city is decidely fermé. Rue des Rosiers in the heart of the 4eme is lined with fabulous kosher restaurants, most with windows to order falafel, or shawarmas. Not the most chic of lunches, but delicious and a refreshing change from the usual Paris. Not to be missed: the Marais has amazing independent boutiques, and some of the best opticians in the world.. Anne et Valentin, Marc le Bihan (both on Rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie). On Rue Boissy d'Anglas (metro Madeleine), l'Envue is a fantastic restaurant and very fashionable bar. Just one mile from Hôtel Daniel, it is a short taxi ride, or a pleasant walk along Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré.
