“Great Hotel. Don't stay in room 211”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Stayed here for New Years. The hotel is lovely; spacious and warm and is in a fantastic central location with metro stops close by and lots of brasseries and bistros also very close.

We stayed in a classic room - 211 which unfortunately stank of smoke. So much so that even leaving the balconette winows open for 12 hrs did nothing but make the room freezing. I asked to change and was told that the hotel was all non-smoking and the hotel was full. We changed on new years day but had to pay to upgrade as there was no availability. Given the stench it would have been nice for them to change rooms without charging us but 211 smelt so bad that I would have paid double to move. Even to another hotel.

However room 212 was really lovely. The breakfast was one of the best continental breakfasts I've ever had and the staff were incredibly courteous and helpful.

I would definitely return. Just not to room 211.

Room Tip: 212 was lovely - stay away from 211

We had 4 great nights in the Mansart. The hotel is renovated but the old furniture is still used. A great combination from old and new. The Superior room was very spacious room on the backside. Even with open window at night we didnot hear any noise outside. We had only some noise from neighbour rooms.The bed were new and of a super quality. Could also take coffee/tea in the room.
The bathroom was also spacious and very modern with 2 douches (1 douche very large). The interiour of the hotel is very cosy and we felt us like home! The location on the Place Vendome is the top! You can easily walk to other parts of the town. The metrostation Opera is about 200 mtr.
The staff is very friendly and will help you if you want. The breakfast was very good; a small buffet and also many things bringing to your table. Very improved since our visit some years ago. The lobby is also renovated. The hotel has no restaurant but can arrange roomservice during some daily hours. We could not menstion some negative items. Next time we will choose again the Mansart. We want to thank the staff.
When you book the hotel directly you can ask for some prefferences.

Room Tip: The backside is more quiet. The frontside on the Rue de Capucines is not real noisy. The street is...

Stayed here for 6 nights. Room was on the large size for Paris, bathroom small and my husband didn't care for the tub with hand shower and no shower curtain to contain water from rest of room....understand this is quite typical in Paris. Recommend their continental breakfast, not much variety, standard, but hot coffee and last couple days added scrambled eggs and sausage, service very good. The desk staff were mostly terrific, Antony was so helpful, he translated a french e-mail for me and twice actually walked us outside to get us headed in right direction...others were good, there is an older women who is unfriendly but she knows her stuff and passes it on to younger staff. Very good location, good value for area, clean, safe, free wifi
Understand prices in area very quite a bit depending on time of year, no pool or fitness area.

Hmm, I converted euros to pounds and thought this was a bit rubbish for £500 a night (for 2 rooms) but then I worked out it only cost us £400 a night for 2 decent sized, clean, comfortable central Paris hotel rooms and it began to look like pretty good value.

We asked for connecting rooms when we booked and they phoned immediately and said they couldn't promise but they'd try. When we checked in we had adjacent rather than connecting rooms so they didn't really try hard enough (and if I had checked I'd have cancelled as I can't sleep properly when there are 2 locked doors between me and my children) so if it's important to you you might want to check this before booking.

The location is fantastic, really central, and the bathrooms and rooms (which are quite large, we had deluxe rooms I think) are comfortable although there's no conditioner supplied in the bathrooms so take your own. The continental breakfast was fine but the bacon and sausages were pretty unpleasant: microwaved scrambled eggs and flabby sausages. We only ate in the tiny breakfast room once and I wouldn't want to repeat the experience but they do deliver to rooms so we did that on our other days, which was much nicer.

A couple of other things didn't work while we were there: the lights in our room, which were either blazing on or off with nothing in between (despite various lamps in the room - they couldn't fix it, they said, when I called downstairs to ask) and the kettle didn't work either, which was a pain.

In short, the location is brilliant (5 minutes from the Place de la Concorde, less than 10 minutes from The Louvre) the rooms are decent enough, especially for the prices given that this is central Paris, but don't bother eating there or asking them to fix anything that doesn't work.

B minus I'd say, could do better.

we stayed at the Mansart for one night last weekend. We'd stayed there a few times over 20 years ago and were keen to see how the hotel had changed. Stayed in room 602 right up at the top. Unfortunately the Ritz are renovating so there was an background noise of drilling - we asked what time the works would be finishing on Sat night and were assured that there would be no work on Sunday...... but drilling started bright and early on Sunday morning! Slightly surprised there was no shampoo - and it was impossible to reach the soap from the bath without standing up to reach the soap machine on the wall - and the bath plug mechanism didn't work to let water out. That said - we still loved the hotel and the staff were very helpful and friendly - and we had a lovely stay!

Room Tip: Better to have a room at the front while the Ritz are doing their renovations behind.

Our stay at the Hotel Mansart was enhanced by one of the staff, a young man named Antony who was helpful, informative and very friendly while still utterly professional. We felt that we were in good hands and that nothing was too much trouble for him. Our room, with no outlook, was generous in size with a few steps leading up to our large tiled bathroom. We found the large bath perfect for soaking walk-weary bodies. The central location of the Mansart encourages lots of walking to the many Paris attractions. The bed was comfort plus and initial difficulties with temperature control were soon sorted by a staff member.
Of interest is the fact that the first exhibition of paintings by a group to become known as The Impressionists was held in a studio at 35 Boulevard des Capucines in 1874.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outlook over the interesting Rue de Capucines.

You can't get any more central. Authentic boutique vibe in the heart of Vendome with classic French style throughout.

A mix up with beds meant we changed room after the first night - Although it took quite a discussion for the hotel to offer this as a solution. That said, both rooms were more than charming and the sleep quality very good.

Bit surprised at the lack of toiletries in the bathroom. A small omission given the price bracket.

All in all, central, classic, and with the potential to make a fantastic city break.

Room Tip: Disappointingly, our double room had twin beds If you want/ expect a double, make sure you clearly s...
