Located between the Rue Saint-Honoré and the Rue de Rivoli, the Hotel du Continent offers the ideal starting point for your Christmas shopping spree. Luxury boutiques are just around the corner, as are the capital’s world-famous department stores and even the brand-new Forum des Halles shopping mall and its stunning Canopy, opened in 2016.
Let's be crazy!
The Place Vendôme, the Rue Saint-Honoré, and the Avenue Montaigne are so close to our hotel that the temptation to go and admire the luxuriously dressed windows is irresistible. The biggest names in haute couture compete in their creativity and offer here a superb evening dress, there boots to die for, a diadem fit for a queen, a gorgeous stole, or luggage so elegant that it will make you want to set off immediately to tour the world on the Queen Mary or cross the continent aboard the Orient Express!
Let's be reasonable!
Or at least aim a little lower! The Galeries Lafayette department store also offers many temptations. In addition to clothing, shoes, perfume and jewellery, an extensive range of homeware items such as table accessories is available. And all these wonders are illuminated by the magnificent glass dome of this splendid late 19th century building. If the Right Bank is not enough to satisfy you, just cross the Jardin des Tuileries and the Seine to reach the Left Bank, with its many shops and bookstores that are just so typically "Saint-Germain-des-Prés".
