The history of radio is on full display at the Pley Hotel. Old advertisements, archive photos of the star presenters of Europe 1 - one of France's most famous radio stations, which had its headquarters a few streets away from 1955 to 2018 - vintage record sleeves, a collection of radios from the second half of the 20th century, from the old 1950s set to the big, 1980s-style portable stereo… from the moment you step over the threshold, prepare to be transported into a real museum of radio.
In your room, the natural light floods in through generously proportioned windows and highlights the decor, with its blend of soft velvet, stylish wood, and shiny brass. You are greeted by a magnificent panoramic view over the Haussmanian rooftops of the 8th arrondissement. Make the most of it by heading up to the rooftop terrace, a little Pley Hotel secret that brings the Côte d'Azur to the French capital. Admire the city skyline dominated by the Eiffel Tower, as you relax into the Saint Tropez-style setting – bohemian decor, Château de Pampelonne wines, Mediterranean flavours… You might even hear a few notes drifting up from the Salle Pleyel, a legendary concert hall situated next to the hotel.
