I recently spent a long weekend at Le Bristol with my daughter. The location was perfect for us to shop and sightsee. Our twin room was spacious, well maintained and beautiful. We enjoyed drinks in the bar which is very popular with locals and the staff were welcoming. Breakfasts were the only meals we had at the hotel but both the restaurant and room service meals were served as ordered and with a smile. The concierge staff were exceptional with recommendations and offering to organise tickets to galleries etc. I love Le Bristol and will definitely return.

We used to live in Paris and have decided that Le Bristol should now be our new home there. It has always been a grande dame, but has improved recently, keeping the feeling of chic history but uplifted by a hip rejuvenation. The pool still has the most agreeable views over Paris -you can see the Eiffel tower and Montmartre-, the spa is bigger and moved to another floor. you have a wider choice of restaurants and the bar is edgy and fun. My husband and I as well as our teenage boy really enjoyed being pampered by everybody from the warm welcome at the reception and concierge to the adorable housekeepers and the maitre nageur. Our youngest son fell in love with the new mascotte, a white birman cat -an added entertainment which shows that the management has got it right. Perfect for romantic couples, business trips and family gatherings alike...
The rooms are beautiful, old fashion comfort with a contemporary twist. Amazing bathrooms, with great amenities - nothing smells better than the Hermes orange verte soap or the anne semonin Verbena shower gel-. Our children want to come back really soon as much as we do. Thank you to all the team there and yes, do try to stay at Le Bristol. Worth every Euros, a true treat !

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are amazingly quiet

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for taking time to write such a glowing review regarding your stay this past December, at Le Bristol Paris on TripAdvisor.

We are delighted to read that you spent a most agreable stay with us. Our first priority is to make our guests feel comfortable so it is a real pleasure to read how much you and your family liked your room overlooking the garden, and both our restaurants. We are even more thrilled that you appreciated the different physical improvements, and found our bar “edgy and fun”! On top of it, we are pleased to learn that your youngest son enjoyed the Hotel mascot, our cat Fa-Raon who we agree is the real star of the Hotel.

Glad you like our fitness center, our new spa and our swimming-pool with its fabulous views overlooking the Paris rooftops. Luc our lifeguard will be honoured that you pointed him out. Also our Room attendants will be so happy that you found them so thoughtful.

Needless to say we are pleased that you will return. Please know that we will always do our utmost to ensure you have a seamless stay, and I hope personally to meet on that occasion!

We stayed at Le Bristol for a weekend in Paris and we liked it very much. It's a traditional hotel, nice atmosphere. We stayed in a nice junior suitevery with a big bathroom. Absolutely nice with a view to the backyard. If you are looking for a traditional, charming hotel we can recommend the Bristol. Also the location is very good for Paris visitors

A superb hotel in every way. A few minor comments. 1) If you order a king-sized bed be sure you are not given to single beds joined together as the "bump" in the centre is uncomfortable. 2) The old-style buffet breakfast was better than the current waiter service collation. 3) The gym is a little small. Overall this is an amasing hotel with fabulous staff and fantastic food. Currently the best in Paris.

Room Tip: Just be sure that a king-bedded room has a king-sized mattress and not two single mattresses joined...

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you for taking time to write such a nice review regarding your stay this past December at Le Bristol Paris on TripAdvisor.

It is understood that it is important to specify the bed type when making the room reservation. Although there are a few rooms still remaining that have the two beds placed side-by-side, known as a Hollywood bed, that will be replaced in the not too distant future.

We also appreciate that those who prefer a buffet breakfast are hard to convert!

We are truly grateful for your remarks regarding your preferences when visiting. Although the fitness is small, we hope you enjoy the new equipment choice.

It is also a pleasure to know that to you Le Bristol is the best hotel in Paris!

Looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back to Le Bristol Paris very soon, and to meeting you personally.

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall

I think this is one of the most wonderful hotels I have ever stayed in. We went there for our wedding anniversary in October. We had a lovely suite in the new part of the hotel. The service was fabulous. We were offered champagne, and it was an utterly romantic night. The staff were so kind and charming. We will be back !

The indifferent attitude to our disappointing stay has been rectified: we were invited back to a head-spinning 8th floor suite with sweeping views of Paris. Needless to say the nasty plastic tubes under the sink, claustrophobic shower, and gluey products had vanished. While still underwhelmed by the hotel's semi-renovated decor (and new spa, hammam too small for my Russian Baniya treatment), we were won over this time around by what needed the most improvement- the service- discreet, professional but relaxed and even warm, without being obsequious. From the room service to cleaning to concierge (entry into Le Silencio) to spa to the front desk, overall service was absolutely "palace" worthy. One last note- as with Epicure, 114 Faubourg does not disappoint. Amazing lamb, wonderful staff, interesting decor- but don't sit in the booths, tables too close together when someone tries to squeeze by to sit down.

Dear Madam,

I am so sorry that I didn’t have the opportunity to meet you over the weekend of November 23rd. I was actually away on business at our sister property Isle de France in St. Barths.

We were very pleased to see that your overall stay was positive. For your information we have begun this morning further room improvements, and we will be renovating the terrace garden flooring over the next few weeks. Maybe on a future visit you will be more convinced with the Hotel’s décor.

We can appreciate that you found the Russian Baniya treatment room too confined. Unfortunately, we were constrained by physical limitations of the building. Thrilled that you enjoyed both Epicure and 114 Faubourg dining experiences; however, a fair comment regarding the booths and adjacent tables in Epicure.

More than anything I was delighted that you found our staff to be professional and yet warm. This comment means a lot to all of us as you took the time to point out several different departments.

Thank you for your return visit. We sincerely hope that we may have the pleasure of having you at Le Bristol over the months to come.

Best regards,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager

One of the best things about Le Bristol is whether you are one of their regulars, the unfathomably deep pocketed who might actually spring for the bottle of wine priced at 16,500E on the room service menu, or a member of the 99% going for a splurge, you will be treated well. You will not feel out of place, and that is pretty unusual.

The best reason to treat yourself to Le Bristol is to experience the very high standard of excellence in every direction. When I arrived in my room, there were two lovely rectangular serving pieces on the coffee table, one with beautiful dried apricots, the other, figs. It was the perfect thing for the moment.

It's all like that. The second night I realized the duvet was too heavy and I needed a lighter weight blanket. It was 2 AM. Five minutes after I called the front desk, a perfectly alert and uniformed woman from housekeeping was at my door, speaking in hushed tones, blanket in hand, wishing me a bonne nuit.

My room overlooked the courtyard, decked out in holiday lights, a huge tree. I was on the fifth floor, in a classic room, the smallest, I think, of the offerings, but it didn't feel small or cramped. I could see the sky, open my windows, let in the cold wintry air.

You could check in to Le Bristol and never leave until your departure to the airport, and you wouldn't miss much. You can see the Eiffel Tower from many rooms. Montmartre from the classy swimming pool. You will eat the best food in Paris, you can overdose on spa treatments. Your own bathroom in your room is gorgeous, lots of lighting options, very spacious, calming.

The front desk staff are trained to handle pretty much any request and I wished I could take Sonia home with me. I had two requests, one easy, the other requiring more thought and creativity. Both were handled with such finesse. It is so nice to not have to specify everything, just let them think of it. Everyone in the hotel is on their game 24/7. I would think it would be great to work there, to be part of that kind of effort.

Dinner at L'Epicure is perfect. Just a unique experience. Flawless service, gorgeous unique food, beautiful setting - flowers, the room. The French sense of beauty, ingrained, effortless, or so it seems, is a balm.

If you decide to stay at Le Bristol, enjoy it fully and don't think about the money. This kind of experience does not come cheaply and it shouldn't. So much goes into it. It's worth every penny.
