“Magnifique!”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We spent 3 nights in the Honeymoon Suite, an absolutely fabulous apartment looking out over the rooftops of Paris. The Eiffel Tower, the Roule de Paris, and the Grand Palais are all in view from the balconies and windows. The staff at the hotel was impeccable; they anticipated and fulfilled every need. We started every day with a perfect breakfast, delivered to the room. We returned every night to champagne, dessert, and a cognac in the bar. The perfect luxury hotel in the City of Lights.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for writing such a kind comment regarding your three nights in the Honeymoon Suite this month.

Delighted that you enjoyed the fabulous skyline of Paris’ chimney tops and monuments from the windows and balcony of the Honeymoon Suite. And thank you for noting your positive experience with a perfect Room Service breakfast, and your evening pleasure of completing a Parisian day in our recently opened evening Bar. That the staff and their attentiveness resulted in your stay being seamless could not please us more.

Looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back at the Hotel Le Bristol,

Best Regards,

Leah Marshall

Excellent service. I have to mention Irina at the front desk, who welcomed me to the hotel with huge smile from the heart.

Dominique and Helene at the Concierge, who bent over backwards to help me and my team decide on and organise a suitable venue for an evening meal - which turned out to be an excellent choice (Bateaux Parisien)

The vast majority of the staff in this very beautiful hotel are exceptionally warm and helpful. Of course, there were one or two exceptions who, without being outright rude, were barely keeping up the appearances of being kind and helpful, but they are absolutely not worth a mention in the context of the general atmosphere of the hotel and the very high standards of cleanliness, beauty and customer service.

I chose this venue for a Board meeting consisting of directors from different parts of the world, and they were all very pleased with the choice.

Dear Mo J.,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay with us this month on the occasion of a Board Meeting you organized at Le Bristol.

We are delighted that you and your guests enjoyed the overall service, and we appreciated that the atmosphere and the beauty of the Hotel Le Bristol made for the correct choice.

We were also truly happy to read that our Concierges Dominique and Hélène exceeded your expectations in organizing a dinner on the Bateaux Parisiens, and that it turned out to be a wonderful time with your team. At your convenience we would truly appreciate you sharing any less than exemplary behavior with us.

Thank you for sharing your comments and look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future.

Hotel has a two star restaurant and a one star bistro. The bistro is where we had dinner, food and service were amazing. Retired to one of the bars afterwards which had a great atmosphere and a DJ spinning discs on the decks. Film star treatment from start to finish, I believe this is where Mr Beckham holed up whilst at PSG. Pity the Rolls Royce (think Thunderbirds) sitting outside wasn't for us when we left but we can dream. Only negative was the prices, e.g. 26 euros for a G&T will give you an idea, but you get what you pay for and the fact that we came away feeling we hadn't been overcharged says it all.

Do not have any regret regarding the Rolls Royce, we wish that your dream could be true.

Finally, I hope that the price won’t prevent you from coming for another drink in our so Parisian atmosphere.

We are a Malaysian family travelling with 2 kids and our stay in this hotel really made our vacation to Paris so memorable. Our twin boys were welcome by Fa-raon, an adorable cat when we arrived in the early morning and this made them feel straight like home in Le Bristol.Our Eiffel Tower view rooms were beautiful and spacious. The truly exceptional experience for us however was the friendly services provided by the front office staff, concierges, housekeeping, restaurants and lounge staff, bell men and others that help us in Le Bristol. I have to thank Jasmine a fellow countryman and Dominique the chief concierge and numerous others which I do not have their names, for helping us whenever we need anything during our stay.
If we visit Paris again, Le Bristol will definitely be our choice hotel.

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel. It really made our vacation to Paris so memorable. We are well-heeled travelers, Leading Hotel Members of the World and this hotel exceeded our expectations immensely - from the staff, elegant French décor, fabulous restaurants, lounge (thank you Btissama and Yusef) and bar to the ever so efficient housekeeping staff that never missed a beat. While I can go on and on, I have to thank the concierge staff - Jean-Francois, Helene and numerous others which I do not have their names, but without their help, my husband and I would have been at a loss seeing the sights, making dinner, taxi and tour reservations especially since we do not speak French. I also want to commend Fabien Coubry and Jean-Marie Burlet who welcomed us every day back to the hotel and sincerely went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were met daily. While this is an expensive hotel, it was worth every penny. This is the finest hotel overall experience we have had - absolutely nothing went wrong. How many times can one say this on a vacation??? We are already talking about returning and cannot wait to do so.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you warmly for your generous comments on TripAdvisor following your stay with us last November.

We were truly happy to read that your entire guest experience exceeded your expectations. To know that we assisted in making that visit to Paris more memorable is more important than anything else.

It is clear that you are very discerning well-heeled travelers. All the more important for us is that you high-lighted so many different positive guest experiences with particular staff from our Jardin Français, Bar, Concierge and Housekeeping departments. Both our Front Office Manager and Assistant Manager were so pleased that you felt the recognition all our guests deserve.

It is also a great pleasure to know that you really enjoyed our “Maison Française” identity that is the soul of the Hotel Le Bristol since its opening back in 1925. French décor and refined gastronomy is what our guests seem to want to experience. From our gastronomic restaurant to our luxury brasserie without forgettting the Jardin Français, and our recently opened evening Bar du Bristol.

Once more, thank you so much for those wonderful comments, saying that we exceeded your expectations “immensely” and that you have had “the finest hotel overall experience” ever goes straight to our hearts. Rest assured that we’ve shared all your comments with the staff.

Looking forward to welcoming you very soon,

Yours sincerely,

Florence Bezault

We just returned from a 5 night stay at le Bristol. It is obviously very expensive, but the service and surrounding are perfect in every way. We were upgraded from two standard to deluxe rooms on arrival (which I believe is a fairly low category of room) The rooms were very large and comparable to most suites in European hotels. Each room has its own entry foyer and even facing a side street the room was quieter than any room I have ever been in anywhere. ( i was surprised to read the review about doors slamming in the hallways in a suite because each of our rooms had large entry foyers which I think added to the "soundproofness" of the rooms. The foyers were so large I was surprised that they didn't make them into sitting rooms so they could call the room a suite) The room was beautiful, but it is inservice where le Bristol is truly exceptional. From the concierges, to the wait staff, to housekeeping to the bell men, every employee performs their jobs in ways I have rarely seen. Some examples were. Turndown was always done when we were out of the room . Whether our dinner was at 7 or 10, they managed to show up during a period when we were out of the room without knocking on our door while we were there. I can only assume it was because we were smart enough to have the concierges book our restaurant reservations and maybe they knew when we were likely to be gone. At breakfast the waiters know what you like to order each day after your first visit. The concierges are beyond perfect, not only at planning and securing great tables at hard to book restaurants but also giving directions and suggestions of things to do. I was looking for a cream that is only available in Europe. they not only located a store where I could purchase it but called to make sure it was in stock and offered to have someone pick it up if I preferred not to go myself. Yes it is expensive, but it is also perfect.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your recent posting on TripAdvisor following your visit at Le Bristol with the family in November.

We are thrilled that you had a wonderful stay and found both the service and the surroundings perfect. Indeed our central location in the heart of Paris, just next to the President’s Palais de l’Elysée, few hundred meters from the Champs Elysées, make Le Bristol Hotel a wonderful and convenient place of residence.

We appreciated very much your comment about the size of your room, and that you found it quieter than elsewhere.

Thank you for your generous comment regarding the Hotel’s service being “truly exceptional”. Both Concierge and Guest Services were delighted to be cited, and of course Housekeeping for in particular the consistant turndown servie.

Rest assured that your nice comments have been shared with the staff and particularly with those Concierges and Housekeeping teams.

Looking forward to welcoming you for your next Parisian stay.

Best Regards,

Check in, flawless. Personnel, incredibly nice. Breakfast, the pastry and continental is all you need, it is perfect. The room is one of the finest I have ever been in. The spa is fantastic. Oh yeah, the flaw, it is not in a perfectly convenient location, but that is easily made up for by the service and the staff. Truly this is a competitor for the best hotel in Europe, as well as Paris.
