I stayed three nights at Fouquet's Barriere earlier this month. My mother had been to the hotel earlier in the year and from the moment we entered the hotel, the staff remembered and greeted her. It remains her favourite hotel in Paris and I can see why: the service is incredible, the hotel is immaculate and the spa is divine. Make sure to bring your swimsuit and take advance of the pool and relaxing area!

My only criticism is that as a nut allergy sufferer I have to be very careful when I travel. I've lived in France so I am aware that they use peanut oil in many kitchens as their main cooking oil. We had no problem in the hotel, but unfortunately I would not recommend the neighbouring La Petite Maison de Nicole.

When we asked whether they used peanut oil they told us on the door that they did not. However, it soon transpired that peanut oil is their main cooking oil. They were able to cater for me (grilled steak with mash potato - delicious) but the confusion which occurred during our meal and the waitress' initial attitude would not inspire confidence. So just a head's up for those with serious peanut allergies.

We stayed 2 nights in an Executive Suite overlooking the Champs Élysées . ( with soundproofed windows) . We had a wonderful bathroom with lovely toiletries. The room was spacious and furnished with fresh flowers and a well stocked ( non alcoholic mini-bar which is included in the room rate . What made our stay though is the staff, so professional and courteous. Our Butler looked after us very well and was charming and efficient .

Having stayed at the nearby Four Seasons Georges V hotel, I really thought that I had seen the best of the French hospitality sector: I was wrong. The staff at the Hotel Fouquet Barriere is simply unique: incredible attention to detail, immediate knowledge of the customer's preferences and a smile on every face.

The decoration of the hotel is the only area that I did not really appreciate but I understand that it wants to create a unique style.

Overall, this was a unique experience. Thank you everyone for a wonderful stay. Looking forward to another visit.

I've traveled to many, many first-class properties around the world, and usually I can come up with a semi-clever way of describing the best properties my wife and I have stayed at. Fouquet.... I've run out of superlatives to describe because it is so far and away above the finest urban hotels we have visited.

Of course the property is elegant, and the service superb. What sets apart is that the service and attitude of the staff is not just perfect, but genuinely warm. They don't paste on obligatory smiles. They really mean it.
