“The best boutique hotel in Paris, bar none”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

I've stayed at the Le Pavillon de la Reine three times in the past 10 months, with plans to be there again twice in April 2014. It is, quite simply, one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed at.

Located on Place des Vosges (arguably the prettiest Place in Paris) in the heart of the Marais (arguably the most interesting and alive part of Paris - esp for history, culture, food, shopping, and central to the rest of Paris - PDLR (shorthand) is first class in every way. From the stunning courtyard as you enter from the Place - a courtyard always featuring wonderful, whimsical sculpture from the art gallery next door - to the elegant and serene living room with an excellent honor bar just inside the front door (graced by beautiful orchids), to the welcome at the front desk, the entire initial impression is very magical. Oh, and it's next to impossible to carry your own bags from the cab, as the bell service is wonderfully attentive and professional

As for the property itself, as the name implies, it was indeed a royal living quarter of sorts, dating from Louis XIV. But it's been thoroughly updated, without losing any charm. Every room I've stayed in (a superior and two different Jr Suites) has been unique and delightful . Excellent bathrooms and beds, very tasteful decor, and all with huge French windows opening out onto either the outer courtyard or an inner one

Little details abound - a wonderful honor bar; an excellent breakfast (optional), a great spa, a bottle of wine upon arrival, super-fast internet (free) ......

Last, the service is superb across the board. But a special mention must be made of the concierge service, in particular M Rudy Weber and M Arnould. There is no impossible request that they cannot fulfill, and fulfill in style. Simply awesome

Do not miss this gem if in Paris

Room Tip: #58 is on a corner - Five HUGE French windows, two overlooking the courtyard (south-facing and sunny...

The customer service, ambience and room service are impeccable. The hotel management takes care of its guests in a polite manner and goes beyond their call of duty. They have deluxe, suite and executive rooms available. The rates are very much affordable and nominal when compared to other hotels in the neighborhood. The highlight is that the hotel staffs do not expect tips and are reliable and honest. They also serve complimentary welcome drink and breakfast for all their guests. To add on, every guest gets complimentary water bottles, newspapers and toiletries. Needless to say, they also have a good parking lot and separate lounge for drivers to take rest.

My husband and I stayed in December at Le Pavillon de la Reine, across from the famous Place de Vosges, and I apologized for taking so long to write this review. The hotel is absolutely wonderful; perfect location, perfect size, perfect service, and perfect room. Until this visit to Paris we had always stayed at the Saint Germain area but now after discovering Le Marais, the Left Bank has lost some of its charm. The area was initially inhabited by the King, then it became the old Jewish quarter of Paris, but now it is known for being artsy and up-and-coming, and for having great restaurants and shops. The quarter is small and quiet, the streets are quaint and old, the shops are all there and truly it feels more romantic than anywhere else in Paris. And then, Le Pavillon de la Reine makes the experience unique and even more romantic. With only 50 rooms, the hotel is a cross between staying in an historical and charming mansion, and staying in a modern French boutique hotel with all the amenities of a 5-star hotel. We had a suite that provided us lots of room (you never get this space in Saint Germain) and when our daughter came to visit from NY she stayed comfortably in the sofa outside. Breakfast was included; a buffet of breads and croissants, fruits and cheeses, and eggs could be ordered a-la-carte. The library in the lobby had a wine cart where you could serve yourself drinks and be charged in an honor system. The service was impeccable: everyone was friendly and attentive. The last day as we were arriving at the airport the hotel called us to let us know that we had left my carry-on with my computer on the lobby. They offered to meet us at the airport and the concierge himself took a taxi and brought us the bag right on time! What better service could anyone find in the city of lights! And for those following fashion, a few blocks from the hotel is the atelier de Azzedine Alaia, the Tunisian French designer where you can knock at the door and delight in the most marvelous dresses, shoes and accessories. Next time in Paris make sure to stay here!

Lovely hotel but the room was a duplex and rather too small and claustraphobic in the bedroom and bathroom. If you have trouble with stairs, ensure before you book that you get a room without an internal staircase. Great, fun location and the staff are first rate, and cannot do enough to help you. Breakfast is beautiful albeit at 35 euros a little pricey, if you want an omelette. Subject to the one point above I would definitely go back and stay again.

Room Tip: Get one without an internal staircase!

It is a very good hotel but today it is less obvious that they are offering the same value for money as it has been in the past - I hope this is not the beginning of a decline in a once great hotel.

Suggestion: Erect additional trellis around the bin area to ensure that the view of the beautiful courtyard out of guest's expensive rooms (who are situated on the right hand side of the hotel) is not of overflowing green refuse bins as it was for our stay !

My husband and I spent a week at the Pavillon de la Reine and it was a wonderful experience.

The hotel is located in a beautiful area of Paris, close to boutiques, subway lines and tourist attractions. The staff are incredibly helpful and will make reservations and offer suggestions without hesitation. Our room was cleaned at least twice perhaps three times a day with turndown service including the next day weather forecast and a delicious piece of chocolate.

As for breakfast, the buffet is full of tasty options and the kitchen will prepare other orders upon request. We did not include the breakfast in our booking but had it a couple times while we were there, very filling.

This was our first (and hopefully not last) time in Paris and staying at this property made it even more magical. The rooms are small to US standards but were very well maintained.

I would strongly recommend this hotel to others.

I've stayed at the Pavillon a number of years ago and was happy to return for a 2 night special trip. The location is top draw and the lobby and public rooms are simply beautiful. Staff are perfectly pleasant and were really helpful in securing dinner reservations in advance of our arrival. Less great was a duplex room with a bedroom upstairs and bathroom downstairs. This provided lot's of complications with a very heavy suitcase being taken up and down the stairs. The room was dark and gloomy with not enough lighting and heavy curtains that could not be opened fully. Darkwood closets & furniture just added to the depressive air. It was clean and well maintained but I would have preferred to know that I had stairs in my room in advance - I would have packed less!
