This is not a five stars maybe a 3 star hotel. Room at first floor with a noise that is like the street is inside the room! The room is cheap and ceiling are very low. not a suite at all. I have paid 640 euros each night! For what I have found the price is out of this world, also for an expansive city like paris. Finally I think that they have five stars because this isn’t an hotel but a residence like is written on the entrance of the palace, so is a different category; but on booking I have found them like an hotel. Very bad experience.

We are sorry to hear about your disappointment referring to your last stay in our Residence. We may understand that you dislike the concept of Apart'hotel, from the other side the rating follows the regional guide-lines and it is recognized by many of our guests. Prices increase with the market demand. Finally Mr Croce, we really apologize that we could not make your stay more comfortable as our goal is to satisfy our guests.

we stayed in this hotel multiple times over the course of 2014 to 2015 when the hotel first opened and really loved it then. Fast forward 6 years on, sad to say that this is no longer the place we remembered it to be. The hotel is starting to be a tad dated (probably minimum maintenance), and the service/attention to detail is going downhill. 1) We arrived at the hotel at 4pm and our room was not ready yet. I needed the room urgently to express milk. No apology offered until I queried why the room was not available given that it was way past check in time, and what was offered was more of an explanation ("sorry we are running at full capacity") than an apology. No offer of a drink either while we waited around in the lobby. 2) We indicated that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they gifted us with a bottle of champagne; supposedly in the fridge based on the greeting card we found on the table, but on checking the fridge, no champagne was inside. This would have been a really nice touch if it had been carried through - I still recall the box of almond chocolates they left on the bed when I celebrated my birthday in Paris in 2015. Such a nice gesture which I remember till today. 3) We requested for a cab to take us to Gare du Nord at 8am to catch our train to Amsterdam. The concierge asked me the size of the cab i needed and I told her I had 2 huge luggage to transport; and she should book based on that. The cab that arrived the next morning was full of stuff inside and could not fit our bags, and the driver proceeded to spend the next 15 minutes trying to make things fit and eventually left. Highly stressful as we ended up having to call for another cab and made it to Nord with less than a desirable time buffer. I think for the price that this hotel is charging, you can probably get something better elsewhere. I'm not sure if this was just an issue of it being peak festive period, but in any case, this should not be a reason. A quick look of the recent reviews seem to indicate the same problem. so if you decide to proceed, do so with eyes wide open.

We are sorry to hear of your unhappiness during your recent stay with us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address your concerns. Please accept our apologies for the late check-in, this is not our standard and not our habit. We always prepare a special gift for our guest to celebrate a special event which makes a nice souvenir. Lastly, we would like to share that the reservation made for the cab was correct but unfortunately the taxi driver did not follow the instruction in this occasion so the reception quickly react to find another cab. Madame, we are sorry if we had failed to meet your expectations . We hope to be able to welcome you again and have another opportunity to serve you better.

One of Paris’ most spectacular hotels, La Clef Louvre showcases discreet luxury to an international clientele. Centrally located, there’s no easier access to enjoy Musée des Arts Décoratifs and Rue Saint Honoré by foot. Every iconic venue of Paris is close to this fantastic property. The nearby Galerie Colbert, Sarah Lavoine’s showroom, and Rue Sainte Anne also provide plenty of options for food, buzzing cafés and shopping. This “boutique residence” features incredible Art Deco architecture, balcony volutes on the top floor, as well as distinctive interior design elegance. Excellent buffet breakfast made of fresh local pastries, juices, jam, cereals, cheese and fruits is either served downstairs or in the rooms (due to covid-19) to start the day with joy. Guests can also relax in the beautiful Honesty bar which has a fantastic collection of books and newspapers. There’s also a convenient lift and two adapted rooms for disabled guests. Serviced apartments of La Clef Louvre make for the perfect stay and you almost forget you’re in a hotel.

We came to France for a full month as a “Get Me Outta Here” post quarantine gift to ourselves. Part of the trip was to work remotely from Paris and experience the city from a new angle. My husband’s previous job took him to Paris about four times per year, so we wanted to put our intimate knowledge of the city to the test and try out truly putting our feet on the ground and living normal life – not vacation. La Clef Louvre was absolutely perfect for this extended stay. Let it be known – this is not a five-star, full-service hotel. This is a five-star tourist residence, a vastly different experience. These are serviced apartments, not hotel rooms. In Paris, you can’t get a proper five-star hotel experience for under 600.00 euros a night. So, don’t be foolish and book La Clef properties without doing your research. This is an aparthotel. Not a full service five-star hotel with the typical amenities. Go on their website and read up. In addition, the government distinction is listed clear as day next to the front door. That note aside, when one shifts their expectations of this property to similar expectations of a luxury apartment building with a front desk, it delivers in spades. The staff was always available, and our apartment received maid service every day. We had #103 – a corner Exclusive Suite for 21 nights. It was equipped with a stylish but small bedroom, bathroom, living room (where we could setup two workspaces and still use the couch and TV), and a kitchen with washer/dryer combo, fridge, dishwasher, stove and microwave. We had two corner windows and three Juliette balconies that opened onto Fontaines du Theatre Francias and La Comedie Francaise’s portico. It was charming and like living in a dream. I’ll always remember being on conference calls with the doors open listening to the world go by. Finally, the air conditioning in our suite was fantastic. It made a nice white noise sound while on, not too loud, and the bedroom got ice-cold. This location is amazing – I’ve personally been to Paris five times, and this was my favorite. You are right next to the Palais Royal gardens – full of shops, neighborhood residents sunbathing, art students drawing and several fantastic restaurants. The cafes on Place Colette and Rue St Honoré are all fantastic. We would stroll to lunch before starting US work hours and tried them all – Le Royal, Le Nemours, Le Musset – all wonderful. The Louvre is 4 minutes’ walk. Literally door to door in less than five minutes. Nighttime strolls were so romantic. There are also several true grocery stores walking distance, so a few nights we ate at home. What are the cons of this stay for those wondering? Due to COVID-19, there’s no teatime with snacks, no breakfast room and no honor bar. All amenities I wish we had. In addition, street noise on the front corner is unpredictable as Paris never sleeps. We’re used to packing earplugs on trips, so on nights it was too loud, we slept just fine with the plugs in.

Hotel very well located although for years surrounded by construction works on Richelieu street: first in front now (September 2021) on the right side. Unfortunately the excellent breakfast service has been cancelled for security reason. Now is serviced only in your room and you have to order it in advance (the day before). But all its advantages disappear because the lousy service of the front office. Do you need something forgotten by, or supplementary to, the house keeping service? Try to get it by own because they will not provide it no matter how many times you phone to ask for it. For more than 300$ a night you should get much more.
