“A problem turned into a dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We were at first very disappointed, to be contacted the night before our 1st wedding anniversary trip to Paris, to tell us that we were being moved to another hotel, because a delegation had arrived and demanded another 10 rooms for security reasons. The hotel we were moved into, was not of the same quality and we therefore complained to the Hotel Pont Royal on arrival in Paris. We were seen by the Pont Royal general manager within minutes. She was most contrite and completely understood our concerns and disappointment. Although the Pont Royal was unable to find us any alternative accommodation for the first two nights of our stay, she arranged for us to be moved back into the hotel and upgraded to a Junior Suite for the last two nights, (which included the day of our anniversary) and when we arrived in the room a complimentary bottle of Moet Chandon was cooling on ice for us to enjoy. That is customer service! We are returning later in the year ........

Room Tip: The hotel was of a very high standard throughout and a choice to match your budget will not disappoi...

We love to stay in St. Germain. The area makes us feel as if we are locals.... not tourists...with its boutiques and bistros.
From this hotel we enjoyed the neighborhood and were also able to walk to the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower with our grandchildren. And there is a metro stop just steps away.
This is a boutique hotel with nice but not luxurious rooms, all amenities, delicious breakfast, a lovely quiet bar, and attentive staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the street.

The location is great and the lobby and bar are nicely designed. Our room 208 was rather small, but OK (except for the hideous painting above the bed). But we did not feel that this hotel should have 5 stars:
No tea/coffee maker in the room.
No red wine in the mini bar.
Very odd collection of wine glasses, three different types, one each!
Small bathroom without a towel heater.
Low on hot water, just drizzling.

So we thought this was OK for a 3-4 star hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for having taken the time to leave your comments on Tripadvisor following your recent stay with us at the Hotel Pont Royal.

We deeply regret that your stay has not entirely met your expectations.

We offer a 24/24 room-service to our guests, which can allow the order of all hot drinks you need anytime you wish.
We indeed don’t have red wine in the mini bar due to quality reasons : In the mini bar, the temperature is too cold and outsite the mini bar is too true random. Our room service and Bar teams are also available for these requests 24/24.

We sought all our painting to students of the Beaux Arts School in Paris and I am so sorry the painting of your room was not your taste. They are all different in the hotel. I hope you could discover an other painting, if we will have the pleasure to welcome you for an other occasion.
I would love to welcome you personally.

Very Kind Regards from Paris

We recently stayed at Hotel Pont Royal in Paris for the second leg of our European honeymoon. We had just come off an excellent stay at a 4-star resort in Rome, Italy and were looking forward to our stay at Pont Royal as we had selected to upgrade to a Deluxe Room at the 5-star resort.

We arrived and were greeted by the hotel staff - who were all very nice - and were immediately given our room. We were a little shocked as to how small the room was, especially since we had "upgraded" and the amount we had paid for the room....I know Paris is expensive, but the room was nothing fancy. Not bad, but just didn't wow us at all. There was just room enough for the desk, bed, and a couple nightstands. We had to shove our suitcase under the desk and crawl underneath to grab clothes out of it so that we didn't trip over it walking around. We were on the 2nd floor facing the road, which was a nice view but at times could be very noisy. It was better at night when the traffic was less, but in mornings it was a bit loud. Plus our room was at the end of the hall right next to the "service closet" and we could constantly hear the banging of the maids and employees of the hotel through the wall when they were in the room.

Plus our WIFI never worked, even after we told the front desk twice and they said they would look into it. We ended up connecting to the room's WIFI next door, but it was the slowest connection ever and wouldn't work half the time. Not a big deal, but when you are using WIFI to communicate with people at home, it was a problem trying to send emails and messages to family.

The amenities in the room were nice, and the two times that we asked the concierge to request restaurants for us to eat dinner they did make great recommendations and got us reservations no problem. We did however ask them the first day we were there to call a restaurant we had found and get us a reservation and when we didn't hear back several hours later we went down to check what time we were given we were told that they were unable to get us in. No big deal, but we would have never known if we didn't check back with them. Then we had to make plans last minute.

The location however is great, about a 10 minute walk from the Lourve and the surrounding area was beautiful to walk around in. Lots of good places to eat as well that weren't too "touristy."

Overall it was a very "average" stay. Nothing really bad happened, we just felt like for the amount of money we paid for the room we would have liked some of the things that did go wrong to be resolved. That and we had just come off a stay in Rome where the staff went above and beyond for us (upgrading our room to a suite, free bottle of champagne for our honeymoon, and free breakfast) so maybe we were a little bit turned off by the fact we did not experience the same in Paris.

I would recommend this hotel to someone coming to Paris, but if we ever go back we will definitely stay somewhere a little more affordable.

Room Tip: Street view was loud at times, and don't stay in 101 next to the service closet. Maids are very...

This is a wonderful hotel in a superb location with nice amenities and a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our room had ample space, especially relative to other European hotels. We had no problem storing our clothes or luggage. And the price was right.

I stayed with four friends for a birthday weekend in March. The Hotel is very well positioned. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were not available until 3 pm but they looked after our luggage and we went out to lunch.My room was lovely , it had plenty of storage and two comfortable chairs and a table, good bathroom with everything you need including hair dryer and bath robe. the mini bar was well stocked and we had a selection of snacks. The Bar was small and quite intimate, the breakfast was very good with continental and hot eggs and bacon. I would say that the hotel had a slightly older visitor and I don't remember seeing any children. All the staff from the room service to the bar man and reception were really friendly and had a can do attitude.The hotel is not flashy but clean,comfortable and warm with lovely staff. I would definitely stay again.

We expected the small room, but this was small even by Left Bank standards. There was a virtual absence of storage, no place for my wife and I to sit and relax in the room (except the edge of the bed), and it was nearly impossible to get to the bathroom (squeezed right up against the side of the bed). We did have a fabulous terrace with a great view of Montmartre, so that is a big plus.

What bothered us the most was the heating/air conditioning malfunctioned for three straight days, despite repeated repair efforts. We did not get a single decent night's sleep. It was also appalling that our room reeked of tobacco one night, though we suspect this was coming from the room next door.

Staff quality was not what we expected or have grown accustomed to. Housekeeping came in the evenings while we were dressing for dinner and never came back after we left, so we never got evening service. And while the concierge was usually helpful, the front desk service was spotty at best.
