Just stayed two nights for transit, I was quite able to get relaxed. Before the stay I expected the restaurant and that was way beyond expectation. The room and terrace also were very nice. Since in this district there are many embassies and not touristic area so that the weekend is really quiet. It's not the very center of the... More

The hotel is in the 16th and on a very quiet corner behind high walls. It is a very quiet oasis in a busy city. The building and its interior are stunning. I had lunch in the library when I arrived and the room (and indeed each public room downstairs) is beautiful. We had a suite on the 5th floor... More

We live in Paris and decided to stay for a night as a getaway and Birthday celebration. Several friends had recommended and they did not disappoint. It's a gorgeous chateau and our room was lovely with everything you would need. Breakfast was very well done with a buffet or the option to have in your room. We also had drinks... More

Loved our Junior Suite, we received an upgrade and were thrilled with the room. Staff were all very friendly and the metro was very close. The area was nice and quiet. Beautiful hotel. Next time I would try the restaurant for dinner.

Hotel was great. Had two very spacious rooms. Service is excellent. Restruant is excellent. The staff and concierge were very helpful. You can park at the hotel. In not one for words but know good food and hotels. This one is worth it.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon a few weeks ago. We were so pleased with everything. We were greeted with rose petals on the bed and in the bath room, complimentary wine and a congratulatory note. This place is pure tranquility in the heart of Paris. One thing that stood out the most is the high quality... More

Everybody who writes about this hotel mentions all the relevant things that make it great – like its unique hot air ballooning history, the incredible location in its own private grounds, the wonderful chateau building, excellent service and so on. So rather than repeat these points, I thought it useful to add some additional flavour that isn’t always showing up... More

I don't see how anyone could complain...unless you're born and raised in ten star hotels. The place is stunning, ridiculously pricy, but given that we stayed in a private subunit with three floors, it makes sense. However, a few very tiny details: 1. The jacuzzi in that particular subunit was a bit off, it randomly stopped working and went off... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this small chateau situated on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne - perfectly placed for visiting the newly opened Louis Vuitton museum by foot.

This boutique hotel turned out to be an incredible quiet zone in the near center of Paris (20 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe). The two century old building has been beautifully refurbished and our second story suite was airy, roomy and very comfortable. Hurray for bathrooms with separate walk-in showers with rain heads and handheld sprayers that can... More
