5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Simply - amazing! I am the pickiest person there is - no joke. This hotel surpassed my expectations, and they are high. Simply, the best. I will choose no where else to stay - ever! Location is great, free Wifi and great people.

Room Tip: doesn't matter. even street facing rooms are quiet as the windows are fantastic. For Westerner...

Thus is one of the best hotels we've stayed at. The service is truly exceptional! The rooms are immaculate and have character--lots of mirrors, art and guitars. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. We wholeheartedly recommend the Royal Monceau. We loved it!!

This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Service was impeccable, food delicious (especially the breakfast and brunch spreads... incredible), and the spa extremely relaxing and luxurious. Even if you don't have a spa service, all guests can use the pool and saunas... nice way to unwind at the end of the day (with fresh juices and snacks, to boot!). The staff was excellent - very polite, helpful, and efficient.

Food is extremely expensive but at least it is very good...

I was attending a local conference at the Royal Monceau and had the chance to enjoy "Le Cinéma des Lumières" where a movie was projected. Cocktail was great as well as food service and staff attentiveness was really appreciated. 'La Cuisine' is a great spot for lunch and certainly dinner ; I loved the lay out and design and the food was outstanding!
A great thank you to the hotel management for the hospitality and the warm welcome!

One of Paris' premier hotels, the Monceau doesn't disappoint. There's nothing modern inside; instead, it's a little like stepping back in time, and the reception - almost apologetic in having to scan your credit card - are immaculate in morning suits. It's grace and understatement all the way, and the rooms are large, Victorian and well-appointed. Beware, however; charges for little extras, such as coffee in your room, are eye-wateringly high but that aside this hotel is a delight. The two star restaurant is very good indeed, and the setting is perfect in terms of location.

My husband and I recently stayed at Le Royal Monceau Raffles for two amazing nights.

Our room was upgraded at the last minute so we enjoyed a stunning suite.

The bed was seriously comfortable and we loved the mirrored bathroom. Everything was top-notch and luxurious.

The service in the lounge was a little lacking but not enough to affect our overall experience. A little more attentiveness would have been great.

Other than that our time here was perfection. I'm sure we will return.
