“Stunning hotel, well located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This beautifully modernized Paris hotel reopened this Spring after a 2-1/2 year multi-million-dollar investment by its owners, completely reimagining a luxury hotel. We spent five days here in September. The hotel is brand spanking new with a modern elegance throughout. We used points to book an upgrade-level Art Deco room because we wanted a balcony on the street out front (Georges V). There appear to be a number of larger rooms and suites on some floors, but this time we were not upgraded (although Platinum) above the level we booked. Be aware that most of the rooms open only onto a fairly small interior atrium--no balconies, just windows--and there is somewhat insipid music playing all day and evening on the patio below, which also serves as a bar and breakfast venue. Privacy seemed better on the street side as well.

Our room, however, was great. The small balcony had a table and two chairs from which to observe the street scene, yet closing the door made the room quiet. I have never been in a hotel room with better lighting. There was task lighting everywhere, much of it on rheostats. The modern switches were intuitive, the bathroom lighting was outstanding, and there was even a switch for soft night lights. Outlets for charging, etc., were generous. The room had adequate hanging space and storage (although a desk drawer was curiously missing). The very large bathroom had plenty of racks for towels (something that is often missing in European hotels), copious counter space, a nicely sized shower, and abundant towels, robes, and amenities. Even the WiFi was super fast (and free).

Staff was for the most part very friendly and accommodating, especially the concierge staff (Mathieu and others) and Anne, our adorable server at breakfast.

As with most expensive hotels, prices for food and services seemed steep even by Parisian standards, but the experience was a delightful one. We had an incredibly creative dinner at La Scene, the fine dining venue, with beautiful food and attentive service. Some might find the choices too limited; study the menu to decide for yourself. Taking the Platinum free continental breakfast saved us $100 a day.

Room Tip: Note that most rooms open onto an inner atrium, with privacy somewhat compromised and an outdoor ven...

Dear Guest, thank you for your valuable feedback. I am delighted you enjoyed an exceptional experience at the recently reopened Prince de Galles and have shared your interesting comments with all our Team. I regret however that you were not offered an upgrade this time, which was most certainly due to the overbooking of the Hotel in September. We are looking forward to welcoming you back very soon at your Parisian Maison de Luxe.
Best regards,

We recently stayed here for 4 days at the end of a trip around France. The hotel has recently been renovated with a very high standard of quality. I think that we had the entry level room which while not large, was very nice and served us well. Especially the large washroom with double sink, and seperate tub and shower. The staff seems well trained and ready to assist. There is no pool and a small gym but there is no change rooms or steam sauna's etc which one would expect of a hotel of this calibre charging premium Paris rates. The courtyard is very nice as are all the common areas of the hotel. We usually stay at the Georges V next door and overall prefer it to the Prince de Galles. That being said, we enjoyed our stay.

Dear Guest, thank you for having taken the time to share your Prince de Galles experience on Tripadvisor. I am delighted that you have enjoyed your stay with us and have shared your valuable comments with all involved. The Hotel does not have a pool due to a lack of space, however, we do have a large fitness room and a wellness suite including a steam and sauna. I do hope you’ll have the chance of experiencing these facilities during your next stay with us, which I hope will be in the very near future.

Just completed a 5 night stay at the Prince De Galles with my wife.. Very happy with the hotel. Nice upgrade. Met by Phillipe at the front desk who showed us to our room. Room was upgraded from a smaller basic room to a larger room , lots of closet space, beautiful large bathrooms. Jean Cristophe made all of our dinner reservations and private tour arrangements. Our private tour of the Louvre was one of the best of all my travels.He has been a concierge for more than 20 years! The doorman , Frederic , offered to go to Monoprix department store and purchase an extra suitcase because the store across the street had closed for the evening. Above and beyond. Only miss was lack of turndown service one night. They sent a bottle of champagne. We would stay there again.

Our stay started off fantastically when we checked in. We took the fast train in from Reims, France, and travel with carry-on luggage so took the #1 Metro toward La Defense, and got off at the hotel's Street, George V. We had a suite, and were very excited to be in the luxury of it with large rooms, beautiful bathroom, big living room, and two tv's, big closet, and everything perfect. The food is fantastic, and the service is spectacular. The bathroom amenities are Bulgari "without" scent which was so nice because we had bought body cream at the start of our 3 week trip because of overpowering fragrances in bathroom creams, etc., that made us itch. High thread count 100% cotton sheets, and thick towels. Finally got a gym as we had been traveling in smaller towns booking mainly at well known hotel brands, but no gyms. Great location for access to everything via the Metro and smart concierges who gave us accurate directions. Champs Élysées five minutes walking distance, restaurants everywhere, shop til you drop, and an easy time getting to the best of Paris either by Metro, or; of course, a cab.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great: hotel just reopened after lengthy renovation

We had a wonderful suite in the Prince de Galles. Our room was very clean and the service was excellent. Emmanuel Blanchemanche was very kind and had 2 jars of candy in our room for my kids which was greatly appreciated!! The staff was so helpful in locating restaurants and giving directions. The hotel was quiet and elegant and has a great location. The exercise room was awesome. I would love to go back some day!

Our first room was very small but beautiful -- but a little clausterphobic. Somehow we got upgraded to a suite -- which was amazing. It was huge and on a low floor but it really didnt matter it was so luxurious. So, if you are booking here, definately find out the size of the room as it really varies. The staff was wonderful and helpful making reservations etc. The downstairs bar was realllly expensive -- even for paris, and not wort it.

This is our second stay at this hotel. We stayed in the Mosaic suite. Nice room with an expresso machine in the living room. Our bed was very comfortable. The marble bathroom was large, (very important to me) with a separate tub and shower. I usually don't take baths due to the ick factor though I felt good about this tub. We had breakfast many mornings in the dining room. The food was pretty good and the service outstanding. One particular gentleman who oversaw the diningroom greeted us each day and made sure that we were well taken care of. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant one evening. The prices for breakfast were reasonable. The dinner was pricey but we expected that. Cocktails in the lounge, I felt were too expensive. The hotel is quite elegant and located in a great area close to everything. When we go back we will probably stay there again.

Room Tip: Mosaic suite facing the courtyard.
