“Perfect choice for Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A trip to Paris is not the same without a stay at the Bristol. The location is perfect for any sightseeing and all the best shopping is within walking distance. The pool has wonderful views of Paris and the staff go out of their way to make your stay there as delightful as possible. It has recently been refurbished and has a new restaurant which is well worth a try. And do make good use of the Concierge desk - I don't think there is anything you could want to do in Paris that they are not able to arrange - our entire trip was made even better by knowing we were coming back to the Bristol for a glass of champagne at the bar at the end of the day!

I am truly delighted that you appreciated the location of our Hotel in the heart of Paris, and that you found our stay thoughtful. I was particularly pleased that our Concierge teams were able to fulfill your every request.

I took a four day romantic weekend trip to Paris from Michigan and decided to stay at Le Bristol because of the luxury rating, the location and the fact that Midnight in Paris was filmed here. The hotel was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated, well located and every staff member was almost subservient with their service. We had originally tried to get a dinner reservation prior to arriving in Paris at the hotel but there was NO availability. Upon arrival in France, my luggage was lost and I had no clothing. The concierge called up to my room and offered to accommodate us at the fine dining hotel restaurant and said that whatever I wore was fine. They assisted me in every way with my Air France lost luggage tracking. It is a very expensive hotel but worth the price if you are looking for something exceptional.
I would recommend this hotel highly!

Le Bristol is really a fantastic property and so deserves its Palace status in Paris. So often hotels may have all the window dressing of a five star but the service lets them down - absolutely not so here where all members of staff made you so very welcome in the truly wonderful surroundings. I am also very fond of their cat Fa-Raon - such a lovely 'homely' touch! I stayed just before Christmas and the hotel was beautifully decorated and had a wonderful festive atmosphere - highly recommended.

Dear Naomi,

Thank you for being so thoughtful in giving your appreciation of your time spent last December with us.

We were touched to read your kind words towards Le Bristol and to know that you highly recommend our hotel.

Your positive comments regarding the decoration and the quality of service received last Christmas while you were staying with us, are a very nice reward. It was a great pleasure to share your positive feedback with all of the staff.
On top of it, we are pleased to learn that you enjoyed the personal escort from the Hotel mascot, our cat Fa-Raon who brings a “homely touch”.

We hope to have the occasion of welcoming you back in a not too distance future, and I personally look forward to meeting you at that time.

With our best regards from Fa-Raon, and all the team!

My husband and I stayed at Le Bristol Paris for 4 nights in December 2012 and we absolutely loved everything about it.
The Honeymoon Suite, on the 8th floor, with beautiful views of the Eiffel Tower, was enormous, tastefully decorated and equipped with what could well be the most beautiful and spacious bathroom in Paris!

Service throughout our stay was impeccable with just the right level of humour and lightness to make us feel at home. We loved the Epicure Restaurant (I recommend the Tasting Menu if you want to experience a true French celebration of food!) and had a lovely evening at 114 Faubourg (this option is more informal so it's perfect for a relaxing dinner especially that food is just as good as at Epicure).

It was great to have the French President as a neighbour (his residence is just down the road from the hotel) and we were certainly not disappointed by the variety of shopping within walking distance.
Overall, a fabulous location, beautiful renovated facilities, unforgettable food and a truly luxurious Parisian experience. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a perfect stay!

Room Tip: The 8th floor only has two suites, if I'm not mistaken, so they are not only super spacious, but...

Dear guest,

Needless to say we were delighted to read that you found the service throughout your stay “impeccable”. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the Honeymoon Suite. It is true that the opening of our most recent suite addition on the 8th floor, occupying the entire floor, has an additional connecting room. When not on a “honeymoon” visit, a family or two couples can have the floor to themselves with two elevators at their disposal. This floor has the most stunning panoramic views of the monument of Paris. On top of fit you are so correct that the most large bathroom with individual vanity for eachone, is so appreciated.

Delighted that Epicure, our three-star Michelin restaurant was up to expectation. The tasting menu is definitely the way to go for those who are keen on such a fine dining experience. Glad that you found the staff to be natural making you “feel at home”. Eric Frechon, our Chef, oversees and works hand-in-hand with Eric Desbordes, Chef of 114 Faubourg. We are thrilled that you enjoyed as much the cuisine. It is an excellent alternative for a more informal experience to Epicure, and a restaurant very much frequented by the Parisians. Not certain if you had a chance to try our new bar, but think you’ll be right at home again. Also popular with the Parisians!

Do not hesitate to let me know when you have another visit to Paris, I’d like to meet you personally.

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall

Everything about the Bristol is exceptional;
Location is ideal for business or turism
Rooms large and comfortable, the bathrooms are unique and you can get nice views over the french garden.
Amenities are fantastic with top floor swimming pool and gym.
Finally, the food is just exceptional, from gorgeous continental breakfast to 3* Michelin cuisine in unique historical surrounding and top class service.
A true palace
