What a hotel... From check in to check out this hotel is pure heaven, we stayed in a junior suite which as you can imagine was pure luxury. You have your own entrance hall before you enter the main part of the suite which once you enter has the largest and most comfortable bed you could ever imagine, the hotel is located literally 10mins walk from the main attractions in the centre of paris including all the famous shops along the champs de elysee. I would put this hotel on par with the Ritz which we did try to book only to find it fully booked, I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in a top notch establishment with first class service.

Room Tip: Junior suites are superb

Once you have stayed at Le Bristol you will always want to return and feel like you are home again. The staff are unsurpassable in sincere respect and professional service and all so effortless it seems. Never any attitude that one might find elsewhere in Paris. I love Le Meurice, the Ritz, the Plaza Athenae, and the George V , but Le Bristol edges these out slightly in my mind in incremental minutia to overall give an outstanding hotel experience. The rooms are very large per category. Classic sophisticated French design (that is hard to understand by internet photos) in the bedrooms with pristine white marble bathrooms that are huge by Paris standards (also true at GeorgeV). Each room if different in design with luxurious fabrics ...my last was done in a beautiful blue esquisite Fortuny ,corner room with perfect Eiffel Tower view. Breakfast in Le Jardin is a most special way to start every morning with again, perfect service. The food is the best you will ever have in any hotel. I gave a birthday party for 8 in the restaurant Epicure that lasted 3 hours and was everyones best luncheon: food,wine, and again ,service. The public rooms are so perfectly designed to allow one to walk around and enjoy the fine antiquities and beautiful floral arrangements as if you were in your on palace...all so sensible. I love the newly redone Bar that is so chic you want to sit there and take in your surroundings and the glamorous people you can only imagine who they are and why they are in Paris at Le Bristol. The staff will greet you by your name most likely . Concierge has always worked wonders for last minute planners such as myself and will make sure you are taken care of whatever you do ( but do drop them an email with requests) . Le Bristol becomes a state of mind with your stay and will create memories to add to the City of Lights , the most romantic grand city in the world. Bon Voyage

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments on TripAdvisor following your visit with us last July.

Your thoughtful writing of the details of your guest experience is the best gift you could offer us.

I was delighted that you were so kind to include eight of your friends for a birthday luncheon celebration at our three-star Michelin restaurant Epicure. We were so pleased that it was memorable for everyone.

It is wonderful to read that for a well-travelled guest such as yourself, at Le Bristol you feel you are coming home again. Thrilled that you loved our new evening Bar which as you no doubt saw is a popular spot amongst the Parisians also.

I was truly happy to learn that you liked your guest room’s French design and noted that each room has different fabrics.

Kindly rest assured that we shared you praise with all the staff from the restaurants and kitchens as with the Concierge team that always do their utmost to make possible all our guests wishes. We appreciate you sharing your particular guest experience.

I loved your saying that Le Bristol is for you “a state of mind” and that we will create memories. Nothing could be more beautiful for us!

Thank you again for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you in a not too distant future!

Very truly yours,

Leah Marshall.
Hotel Manager.

I was lucky enough to stay in this hotel with a friend who had been upgraded to a junior suite. My stay was brief but great, the service was impecable and the food/drinks were perfect. The cocktails in the bar were especially good.
The design and style of the hotel could be described as a little chintzy, but it really could be anymore Parisian if it tried.
The location was perfect for sightseeing and shopping. I didnt get chance to visit the pool or spa, but they looked very appealling.
I would love to go back and would definitely reccomend it to anyone!
PS, Try and spot the resident cat, its gorgeous and very well looked after!

I stayed in a junior suite for three nights in early January 2014. It's hard to imagine improving on this room. Everything was pristine and of the highest quality. And unlike what you get at some of the luxury chains (e.g. Mandarin Oriental), the room doesn't look like it could show up in a luxury hotel in any other city. The room is a perfect example of Parisian charm. It has subtle floral patterns, an old world feel, and it gets a lot of light from the two huge windows. If you're choosing among the luxury hotels of Paris (all of which are in a similar location), I don't think you could go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: room 243 was excellent. It has a little noise since it faces the street, but has a city feel that w...

We were truly delighted to read such a positive review. That you consider it “hard to imagine improving on this room” and that “everything was pristine” and of the “highest quality” means a lot to us! In addition the fact that you appreciated the “charm” of the room that could not be in any other city.

Thank you for being being such a wonderful ambassador through your generous comments.

Having an early flight into Paris, we arrived at Hotel Le Bristol five hours before check-in. Jérémie didn't hesitate to check us in but kindly informed us that our room wasn't ready just yet. After meandering the surrounding area for an hour, we returned to the hotel where we were told that our room had been upgraded and that it was available - despite it still being many hours before official check-in. We quickly realised that this high standard of service was standard for this hotel.

The service and attention to detail at Le Bristol is unmatched and the best I've experienced. We experienced a few issues with our French SIM cards and the staff in the business centre didn't hesitate to assist. We were so apologetic for asking for their assistance with something completely unrelated to the hotel but they were extremely forthcoming and didn't miss a single beat.

During our visit, there were quite a few African dignitaries staying at the hotel and despite the obvious disruptions this caused, we never once felt like we were ignored or overlooked. In fact, we felt very welcomed by the fact that the concierge and other staff recognised us and addressed us by our names each time we left/returned to the hotel. Quite a feat in a busy, popular and large hotel!

Le Bristol truly deserves its "palace" status - it is absolutely stunning. Our room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard which had been beautifully decorated for Christmas. The bathroom, which was as big as the room, was like your own personal spa with double sinks, a huge bath and separate shower.

The hotel is located in a prime position, moments away from the Champs-Élysées and there were quite a few good restaurants in the area.

The rooms are pricey but they are worth it even if you stay for a short while. It's nice to splurge every now and then, and this is one splurge I'll never regret!

Dear Jackie C.,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your kind comments on TripAdvisor regarding your stay amongst us in December.

We were truly happy to learn that it was a “Perfect three nights in Paris”. I was delighted to read that our “attention to detail at Le Bristol is unmatched” and that it is the best you have experienced. This means a lot to us.

It was particularly wonderful to read that you experienced our staff to be thoughtful. Jérémie at the Front Desk, and the Concierge team amongst the others in the front of the house so appreciated your comments. Guest recognition is of most importance to us.

Lastly we are happy to know that you not only found our location agreeable, but that the room product also.

Once again thank you for sharing your guest experience, and allow me to wish you a very happy new year.

Looking forward to welcoming you back amongst us for another “splurge” you’ll “never regret” in a not too distant future,

We LOVED this hotel. Stayed there for five days over the recent NY holiday and couldn't have been more impressed. The hotel is beautiful in every sense of the word, in a great location, located a block away from Elysee' Palace, and on rue de Faubourg St. Honore, home to some of Paris' best shopping, During the holidays, the hotel is wonderfully, warmly decorated, with a large tree in the lobby and outdoor garden, as is the street and neighborhood. The see so many of Paris' signature shopping landmarks, and their beautiful buildings, all decorated for the holidays, is great fun. We were upgraded to a Deluxe room under American Express' Fine Hotel and Resort program which was terrific, wonderfully decorated and large, with a magnificent bathroom. Under the FHR program we were also entitled to early check in which is exceptionally helpful for those traveling in that morning and enjoyed complimentary breakfast each day. Finally, the service. A lesson in how to run any business. Every single person we came into contact with was exceptional, no question too many, no request too large. From the housekeepers to those in the spa and front desk. However, those manning the concierge desk, well, they became like family; helping us so much, our every detail, from having us take the house car to a local restaurant - a great recommended, 110 Taillevant, to securing from row tickets to a terrific New Years Eve concert at St. Chappell (we had only asked for tickets), to museum, to four great restaurant recommendations exactly of the type we wanted, great neighborhood places. Best though, was the reputation of the concierge's and the Bristol around town, when they called and said they were from "The Bristol," it meant more than any other hotel in any other city that we've ever been. A special note to Dominique, who when we left felt like we were leaving family, was exceptional - a friend. One our last night, wanting us to go to a favorite neighborhood restaurant in 7th (Fontain de Mars), and finding that the earliest they could take us was 9:45, he wrote a handwritten note for us to give to the restaurant when checking in. The owner sw that it was from the Bristol, read it , laughed that it was from Dominique, and not only seated us earlier but gave us a great table. Above and beyond in every way (on New Years Eve, they placed a bottle of champagne in our room, such a nice touch). For the first time in traveling to Paris, I can see why those that have stayed at the Bristol, each year, insist on making it their home.

Dear Don C,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay at Le Bristol Paris last January.

It is such a great pleasure to learn that you found our Hotel “beautiful in every sense of the word” and “loved” your experience at Le Bristol! Your words are so very generous, and we sincerely thank you!

You are quite correct in that our location is very ideal, adjacent the Palais de L’Elysée, and on one of the greatest shopping streets of the city!

We were delighted that you found “wonderfully and warmly decorated” the Hotel for the holiday. Your praise was shared with the team that prepared all the celebrations!

Delighted to read that your upgrade to a “wondefully decorated” Deluxe Room suited you perfectly. Happy that you could enjoy an early check-in. We always try to do our utmost to ensure guests with early arrival flights can benefit of as early check-in as possible.

We were also thrilled to learn that “every single person” you came in contact with “was exceptional”. That they were always wiling to answer or help manage any requests, Housekeeping, the Spa, the Front Desk, or the Concierge Departments!

Kindly rest assured that we have shared your kind words with all of the team, with a particular attention to Dominque, our Head of Concierge who went out of his way to ensure you had an exceptional experience at the different restaurants and cultural experiences suggested.

Looking forward to welcoming you back amongst us, and perhaps for next year’s New Years Eve!

Very truly yours,

Leah
Hotel Manager
