“Very Nice Hotel with Excellent Location, Great Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Le Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe is a very nice hotel excellently located near the l'Arc de Triomphe. I arrived 3 hours before normal checking time, but they placed me in a room. Unfortunately apparently they allow smoking in this hotel, so the room "reeked" of smoke. I cannot believe they even allow smoking in any of their rooms in this day and age. I guess I took some things for granted that I shouldn't. The last dozen or so hotels I stayed were automatically non-smoking, since they didn't allow smoking at all. I was too tired to ask for another room, and I was 3 hours early... so... (sorry I would have rated this hotel 4 stars if not for the smoke smell of the room.) The room was modern, very nice, overlooking their very nice courtyard. Front desk was friendly and efficient. Breakfast buffet was OK. Did not do room service, nor use any of their facilities. I used this hotel as base to go to work, and to visit some of Paris' best known such as the l'Arc, Eiffel Tower, Champs d'Elyssees... etc... Courcelles and Etoile subway stations are about 10 minute walk... Taxis always waiting in queue.... some OK restaurants nearby... Sorry for the three stars... I'll come back and stay in a non-smoking room, next time...

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a non-smoking room, if you are non-smoker.

I was staying in hotel for few days and the stay it self was quite nice but it was a matter how they handled my left belongings after left back home. At same day of checkout i contacted hotel that i left some clothes to my room. They answered next day that they didnt find anything from room and thats it! So what they did? They asked from cleaning lady that did you find something from that room and she said that she didnt? So customer must be wrong and he propably left it to somewhere else or then he just didnt know what clothes he was having with..? Nice thinking! Especially from five star hotel..

For me its easy to draw a conclusion that there is a thief in hotel staff, definately not a five star place. Even in three star this would have been handled better.. A MUST VOID place.

My daughter and I celebrated my birthday here in 2010 when it was part of the Hilton chain. We had a lovely time then and did not think it could get better, but it has. We were booked both times for the executive level, but this August when we arrived, we were upgraded to a two bath suite. The rooftop lounge is our favorite spot and the complimentary food and wines are all excellent.
We enjoyed the bar directly off the lobby and excellent room service! Everyone at the hotel goes out of their way to make you feel at home.
Housekeepers are attentive and all linens and beds are comfortable. In fact, I slept as well in the hotel room as I do in my own bed. Probably why another guest from Saudi Arabia told us he always stays at this hotel on his very frequent business trips to Paris.
I cannot wait to return!
I cannot say enough good things about the concierge service. They are eager to help with setting up last minute reservations and private drivers, tour guide to Versailles, etc... outstanding in every way!

Room Tip: Executive level rooms are worth the extra expense and many have panoramic views of the Eiffel Tower.

Stayed here only one night, but the location was very convenient, and the concierge staff was extremely helpful while we were there and before we arrived. They provided a number of options for me for dinner, giving in-depth analysis and reviews, and the option we ended up going with was indeed a lovely choice. Their response time over e-mail, especially considering the time difference, was very attentive.

Given the price, I am not sure if we would stay there for an extended vacation in Paris, but it was a very nice choice for the end of a trip.

My daughter and I just returned from Paris, where we spent nearly 10 days (nine nights at Hotel du Collectionneur). We arrived 5 hours before check in time, and they were happy to show us to our lovely room without hesitation. The staff was very friendly and were always ready to help if we had a question. The hotel lobby smelled WONDERFUL (we decided they must use the limited edition of Papier D'Armenie burning papers to create the exotic and alluring scent)...I don't understand the complaints from those who must have overly sensitive, very prudish noses. They brought chocolate to our room twice per day, Evian water daily and even sent chocolate mousse and champagne to the room for my birthday. WiFi was free of charge (rare at European hotels) and the bed (we had a king standard room) was comfortable. The hotel was very quiet during our stay. Water pressure was great, and the room was impeccably clean. We felt quite pampered during our stay. I will definitely return!!! Love from the American mother and daughter who occupied room 136 for 9 glorious days! Merci!!!

With our very warm regards to your daughter and you,

This hotel is in a great location, near to the Arc de Triomphe, the Champes Élysées and other attractions. Rooms were quite spacious and elegant with beautifully appointed marble bathrooms. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfast was excellent.
