“Not one, but two nights in Paris.......”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Fouquet's really has an outstanding location in the centre of this magnificent city. From collection at the Eurostar terminal, to arrival and check in you really get the impression that this place is special. It is presented perfectly. It is definitely not cheap and so if I apply the highest standard of expectation then:

You will like:

Great rooms, stylish, modern and well equipped
Good bathroom, although the toilet is located in a different room, away from the bathroom(?)
The spa is beautiful and a haven of tranquility away from the hustle outside
Overall ambiance is one of class and sophistication

What we did not like:

The service of some of the staff was pedestrian and unattentive. The check in staff and concierge were good, but those who had tasks delegated to them were not. For example, it took half an hour and three phone calls for a plug adapter to arrive.
Breakfast service was also variable. Some people were stood waiting for a table for ten minutes or so without any obvious urgency from the staff to prepare a table.
Breakfast itself was disappointing overall in terms of choice and quality.

In summary, the Fouquet's is a very high class option that is executed well, but not perfectly. For a special treat, you could do far worse.

Room Tip: Book tickets for shows privately to avoid the hotel mark up. We were stung!

I took my partner to Paris for her 40th, and having seen the excellent reviews thought we would give the Foquets a try. It was a great decision, the hotel is presented immaculately and the staff from check in to the bar are welcoming, friendly and helpful. OK it's not inexpensive, but in our opinion worth every penny.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here in September. Succinctly, the hotel is superb. The rooms are well decorated-not huge, but not small. The bathroom is spacious and beautiful. The food is also outstanding. However, this hotel really shines when it comes to service. Everyone is extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. I cannot find a single issue to criticize. We look forward to our next visit to Paris and the Hotel Fouquet's Barriere!

I spent a week there in december 2011 and it was all perfect.
Firstly the location is excellent.
The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are great too with their huge tub and t.v. You get free mini-bar (non alcoholic drinks) in all the rooms.
Staff were all amazing, exceeding all of my expectations. Anything you ask for ( and more ) they will do, with a smile. Genuinely nice. Every evening i would come back to the room and find a plate of sweets or patisserie on the table!
The spa and gym and the pool are excellent, the pool being the initial reason why i chose to stay there, but now i have so many other reasons to go...and the food is great!
Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful hotel, very attentive staff....worth every penny.

The location at George V and the Champs Elyssee allows one to have a pleasant stroll to visit the sights, ie The Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Tuilleries, Eiffel Tower etc.

It is a high end hotel with high end service. They pay attention to every detail leaving one feeling very special. One does not need to leave the hotel to experience sensational food at the Micheline rated Diane restaurant with 5 star service. The other restaurants within the hotel are excellent as well.

The hotel utilizes a system of a butler and a concierge which ensures a seamless service for guests.

Will definitely return....and my wife would use the spa next time around.

If there was one area of improvement to be made...the gym could be enlarged...it got a little crowded.

My family and I visited Paris in June and had the privilege of staying at Fouquet's. The staff at this hotel goes above and beyond - one of the best hotel experiences I've had. We visited with three young children and the staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating - easily comparable to, and frankly better than, a 4 Seasons, Ritz or Mandarin. We enjoyed the intimate size of the hotel very much - although small, it has everything - wonderful food, a lively cocktail lounge, indoor pool and gym. It's not inexpensive but still an excellent value.
