An excellent hotel. Luxurious, but small and intimate with discreet, courteous, professional staff in one of the best locarions in Paris. The hotel is surrounded by a wide variety of dining choices and is close to amenities such as the metro, the Louvre, rue St Honore, Palais Royale etc. We will definitely return.

I loved staying here when I was visiting Paris last year. I loved how close it was to the Louvre and so close to all the shops! The staff was friendly and very attentive. Next time I go to Paris I will make sure to make a reservation at this hotel again!

This is such a wonderful hotel. Extremely good service, beautifully updated décor and so convenient to everything. The restaurant and bar are a great added bonus! As a boutique hotel in a major city rooms are on the small side - but who cares? Hang out at the bar and go see the sites - that's why you are in... More

Misrepresented "5 star hotel". Corners cut at every opportunity. I have stayed at nicer 3 star hotels in Paris and disappointed that I paid triple the cost for 3 star quality. Nothing special or unique about this hotel and service is astonishingly poor. If the hotel itself wasn't lackluster enough, the service was astonishing poor and we felt discriminated against...

Clean room, courteous staff and excellent location between 2 major metro stops. The Grand Hotel du Palais Royal was an excellent value and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Paris. I still cannot believe the low price.
