Think small but cozy, think red velvet, think extremely friendly and helpful staff, think small but well designed rooms and you've got the Hotel Plaza Athenée. Perfect Paris location close to the Metro and therefore everything else that's not within walking distance.

Dear Dennis, The entire Hôtel Athénée team thanks you for having shared your opinions and your compliments with the TripAdvisor community. Nevertheless, we just want to say that Plaza Athénée is a five star hotel located a few steps from the Champs Elysées and Eiffel tower and we don't have any connexion with it. Anyway, we really appreciate reading you... More

We were in Room 201--was spacious by European standards (was Deluxe w/ King, 23 sq m). Had a nice balcony view onto the street below. Loved the Red Bar--perfect for unwinding in the evenings. Very quiet, nice appointments as well. Give this a 4/5 since it wasn't top-tier luxury, and for 450 euros a night, you're paying somewhat for location.... More

first, the good news...this is not the Plaza Athenee owned by the Sultan of Bruni....it is a charming small hotel of only 20 rooms. The lobby bar, the Red Bar, is postcard perfect, red velvet, satin, tassels, and Frank Sinatra softly, softly crooning. The rooms are very, very small in typical European fashion. You won't be able to keep your... More

We loved this quaint little hotel with its red velvet lounge and spiral staircase, lovely. I booked it on expedia and got what I got.. Room 102, up front on the bottom floor. Some sort of show let out and the noise with it..not too bothered by that but the cigarette smoke that waft up into our room was horrible.... More

Dear Customer, The entire Hôtel Athénée team thanks you for having shared your opinions and your compliments with the TripAdvisor community. We apologize regarding the room you had. It's true that being on the 1st floor, facing the street, when there is a show at the Olympia is not always pleasant. But for next time, don't hesitate to ask a... More

Came to Paris on a long weekend and we enjoyed or stay at the Hotel Athenee. This was our first time in Paris so we can't compare to other Paris hotels. The hotel is small and conveniently tucked away from the bustle of the main road but still very close to the Opera district. We stayed on the 5th floor... More

We have just spent three nights at this hotel and loved it. It's in a great location, very central, about 5 minutes walk from Opera Garnier and Madeleine and to at least two different metro stations. It's also only about 10 - 15 minutes walk to the Louvre. Even though the hotel is in a very central location it is... More
