Ascott has opened the third property under The Crest Collection – a
selection of Ascott’s most prestigious and unique
luxury serviced residences.
Located in the heart of Paris’ 8th arrondissement, the new La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris
residence is housed in a building steeped in history.
The entrance to La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is on Rue de
Bassano, a few minutes from many of the French capital’s most sought-after attractions, including the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel
Tower, Grand Palais, Théâtre du Rond-Point and the famous Avenue
The property is also a stone’s throw from Avenue
Montaigne and Avenue Georges V with their luxury boutiques and
Built as a
private residence by renowned cognac distillers – the Hennessy
family in 1907, La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is housed in a five-storey
Haussmannian-style building that has kept every bit of its
character and charm over the century. The elegance of this finely
preserved building stands out in its cornices, corbels, gilding,
period moulding and delicately chiselled ironwork.
Mr Lee Ngor
Houai, Ascott’s Managing Director for Europe, said, “Ascott
created The Crest Collection to distinguish an exclusive
collection of serviced residences that offer a memorable
experience through building heritage, architecture and location. Ascott has a strong track record of product development and design
expertise, from preserving heritage buildings to converting
offices to serviced residences. At the new La Clef Champs-Élysées
Paris, which took us two years to conserve and enhance, our guests will feel at home and be able to experience the Parisian life,
culture and history in a unique luxury residence.”
The lobby of La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris features a fragrance lounge where guests can
discover a collection of five essential oils and a signature
fragrance created exclusively for the property.
A chic blend of Haussmann-era mouldings and contemporary touches
are reflected in the 70 rooms, suites and duplex apartments with
balcony, in large spaces of up to 56 square metres. From
fireplaces, herringbone parquet flooring to bookcases, every
furnishing and fitting has been thoughtfully brought to create
living spaces inspired by traditional Parisian apartments.
Every room has a fully-equipped kitchen, Nespresso machine,
dishwasher, elegant dishware and even a washer-dryer.
Facilities at La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris

valet-parking, laundry, buffet breakfast, fitness suite,
residents’ lounge, complimentary L’Occitane toiletries and
