“First class service - beautiful hotel”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I highly recommend Le Bristol in Paris. It's expensive, but if you have the budget it's worthwhile. We stayed here for one night bang smack in the middle of Paris Fashion Week. As you can imagine the hotel was full and bustling with VIP clientele. The great thing was that even though my boyfriend and I have nothing to do with fashion week, we were given the utmost attention and truly 5 star service. Nothing was too much trouble, including our request for an early check-in and an upgrade to a more premium room.

The hotel and room was immaculate. Large, comfortable king size bed. Beautiful large white opulent bathroom. The indoor pool up on level 6 was amazing, and I highly recommend taking a dip in it and a steam in the hamam and sauna room as a great way of shaking off jetlag!

Breakfast the next day was served in the restaurant overlooking the lovely courtyard garden. We opted to simply have the continental (already included in our room fee). We were given tea/coffee/juice etc, along with a basket filled with yummy French pastries. When our rather large pastry basket was dwindling, the waitstaff simply brought us over another basket without the need for us to even ask (it was too much for us to eat, but so nice of them to bring it for us anyway).

All up I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Paris who has the budget to stay here. The only downside was I couldn't find the resident hotel cat. Maybe next time I will find him for a cuddle!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your posting in October on TripAdvisor regarding your stay at Le Bristol in September. We very much appreciate that you can highly recommend the Hotel. Needless to say I was delighted to read that you and your boyfriend were given “the most attention and truly 5 star service” during a very busy Paris Fashion Week. That is just what we want to hear!

Delighted that you found the Hotel and room “immaculate”, and our roof-top pool “amazing”. Also pleased to see that our staff were generous with your continental breakfast offering at Epicure. Did we tell you that all our bread and breakfast pastries are homemade? Yes Wesley is our Resident baker. A rarity within hotels in the city.

I was so disappointed that you did not get the chance to meet Fa-Raon! The true star of the Hotel. He has been most visible as of late. Never hesitate to ask us to try and track him down. We may have to put a GPS on his Goyard collar yet!

Hope we can have you return soon!

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager

Le Bristol is a faboulous hotel and provides a great experience, albeit at a price. The staff was excellent, some of the best I have experienced in Paris. Everyone was extremely helpful and very friendly. Some even remembered me by name, which is refreshing.

My room was very lovely. The the bed and bedding were of very high quality. The bathroom was roomy, bright and fulfilled all expectations. Everything was very clean and well serviced.

The only issue I experienced, was the remote for the television was an ipod, that was difficult to navigate and use. I think something simpler would be appreciated by most all.

The food in the hotel restaurants was of exceptional quality as well.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms with a balcony is a great location to read and enjoy the outdoors.

Dear Armstrong,

Thank you for your posting on TripAdvisor early this month regarding your recent stay. There is no question that all guests must be shown the two remote controls as someone like myself would not be able to figure it out either! I apologize that we did not point out the classic remote control located in the bedside drawer!!

We appreciate that you found both food and beverage in the Hotel to be of exception quality. We will pass on your compliments to our three-star Michelin Chef!

Hopeful to have you with us when next visiting Paris.

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall

My wife and I loved everything about this hotel, the staff were so friendly and the rooms were spacious, comfortable and had a very nice design with a luxurious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, we had a great nights sleep which was needed after our long flight. The food was amazing too, we cant wait to come back here again next year.

Lovely. Well located. Not too big. Service superior. great restaurant Lovely rooms. The only drawback is expense. Paris expensive anyway but exchange rate makes it tough on American visitors. That being said, returning shortly for another splurge. Enjoy!

We stayed at the hotel in October 2013 and had a junior suite. The hotel is beautiful and our room was airy and delightful--very nicely decorated in typical french style, huge bathroom with a shower and a bath, fresh flowers, great products, a wonderful court yard view, comfortable bed and plenty of closet space. With the exception noted below, the hotel staff is incredible, helpful and very service oriented--everything you would expect from a hotel of this caliber. The hotel practically bustles with activity and there are so many people standing at the ready to help you. We had breakfast either in our room or in the restaurants every day and the food was terrific. The peacock lounge is also fun with great drinks. I would give the hotel a 5++ but for the concierge service. I honestly have to believe that our less than exceptional experience with the concierge team was a fluke--we had some avoidable glitches. Everything worked out fine, and I cannot reiterate how beautiful and wonderful the hotel is, and I will probably stay there again, but I think the concierge team could do a better job communicating with guests.

Dear guest,

We appreciate your comments posted in October on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay with friends.

You were very generous with your comments, and we very much appreciate that you found the overall staff “is incredible, helpful, and very service oriented”. And you are so correct, “everything you would expect from a hotel of this caliber”. The one exception you noted was how our concierge service did not live up to the others. If you would be so kind to contact me at your convenience I would so appreciate it.

We are really pleased that you found the room décor delightful and in ”typical French style”. Happy that you enjoyed either room service or one of the restaurants daily, and appreciated the food all round. Glad you experienced the new evening bar with a DJ three evenings a week, and found it both “fun with great drinks”! Our Chef Barman is one of two ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’, meaning best craftsmen (people) in their métier which in this case is mixology!

I hope to hear from you when you have a little window!

Yours sincerely,

This is our favorite hotel in Paris because of the standard of the hotel. The service is second to none. The ambience is very friendly, the staff is very professional and attentive, the rooms are beautiful decorated, the courtyard garden is a beautiful, lively but still peaceful place to enjoy lunch, afternoon coffee or drinks before dinner. Once you have stayed here, you want to come back (soon).
