Just steps from the Place Vendome and the Opera Garnier, encircled by the most exquisite quarters of Paris, the four-star Maison Athenee offers an intimate, luxurious interlude, making any stay in Paris truly extraordinary. Everywhere, from the minutest detail of the petit salon to the sleek elegance of the smoking room, the creativity of Jacques Garcia finds full expression. The 20 rooms of Maison Athenee are romantic cocoons. Each boasts a spacious bathroom and, in a touch of French chic, exclusive toiletries from Hermes. Beyond the elegance of the establishment, it is the hushed atmosphere that is, at once, the most striking. Set in the beating heart of a vibrant capital, Maison Athenee is a peaceful sanctuary, a space of contemplation and reverie.

Excellent location in the heart of Paris close to all. Stylish decoration. Very polite staff. The hotel is very small. The thing that we really missed in the room were tea and coffee facilities. The hotel is considered 4*, so it would be only natural to provide with a small tea pot and few instant coffee and tea bags...

Maison Athénée is a 4 star boutique hotel located in the center of Paris. Designed by the famous interior french designer Jacques Garcia Located 5-minute walk from the Place Vendôme and Opéra Garnier and 100 meters from the Madeleine Metro Station, which connects with the main sights of Paris. Place de la Concorde and the Champs Elysees are a 10-minute walk away Rooms soundproofed and equipped with elegant old fashion furniture but also all the last technology Bathroom amenities by Hermès toiletries. The lobby, bar, breakfast area and also the room, takes you to the Edith Piaf era, red velvet with dark ilumination, perfume scent all over the place Overall great experience, cool, elegant, even it was high season and the 300 Euro rates per night seem too much for the place

The only things stopping the hotel from getting five stars are the fact it took over two days (and several attempts) to get an answer to a question I needed to ask before our stay, and a 7am fire alarm on Sunday morning. It wasn't a drill, as we were not expected to go out, and reception said 'oh, we will turn it off' but that took a little while... Otherwise, a great little hotel. Rooms small (but this is Paris, and it is a great price for what you get here), but wonderfully decorated. Incredibly comfy bed. A really lovely bathroom with a fantastic shower, and Hermes toiletries. I would stay again!

Overall: I booked this hotel last minute (as my usual go to spots where full). The price for the season was reasonable. The hotel is discreet. The location is good if you need to be beside opera. Arrived late but was still able to order reasonably fresh/healthy food. (Saved me from ordering a late night meal on uber-eat or deliveroo). It's pity the internet was slow as otherwise I would consider going again. Pros: - Good value for money. - Very quiet room (Top floor) - Reasonably comfortable bedding. - Nice bathroom with a bathtub - Warm & Professional Receptionist at night. - Quick check-out - Late night food offering is small but nice. Bread is nice quality. Cons: - Very slow internet (not good enough for a conference call or to download a heavy document) - Had to connect through my 4G. - Small room (relatively normal for Paris) - No place to even open a luggage. - Poor lighting the bathroom : Making it hard to shave.

Had an absolutely wonderful time in Paris in late March. Hotel Maison Athenee was a hidden jewel...very "Parisian" and stylish...great location with good restaurants just minutes away (Mon Paris, as well as a creperie two doors down, an Indian restaurant down the street, etc.) There was also a very comfy bar (sorry, can't remember the name) but I was introduced to an Aperol Spritz there and it was really good and refreshing. Also had good frites. Other food looked good there, but we didn't eat a meal there. Anyway, Hotel Maison Athenee had small rooms, but soooo romantic and lovely. A great choice. Also near the Metro stations. I would stay there again on future trips. Breakfast served in the morning. Somewhat limited options, but still good...cheeses, croissants, fruit, coffee, and eggs cooked as you like. Ahhhh...I want to go back! Also, staff was great. Thibeaux (not sure how to spell his name), Alex, Alicia, etc. were all extremely helpful and courteous. Love this place!
