“Full of character, well-located, and charming. Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Full of character, Le Dokhan’s is a very comfortable hotel well-situated in a lovely Trocadero neighborhood. We were there for four nights in February and absolutely loved our stay, particularly for the outstanding personal service and charming atmosphere. From the moment we arrived, all members of the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We were able to immediately check-into our room at 10:30am, a fact that made us particularly happy after a tiring, overnight flight from the U.S. The staff provided great restaurant recommendations, useful directions, and stopped by our room every evening with little treats. The ambience at Le Dokhan’s is particularly Parisian, with beautiful décor throughout the hotel, including what has to be a one-of-a-kind elevator reminiscent of a Louis Vuitton trunk. Understanding that the rooms tend to be small, we splurged on a business class room which provided a sitting area, balcony, espresso machine, and daily continental breakfast. The room was lovely with a comfortable king sized bed, nice linens, and two chairs, a loveseat and café table in the sitting area. We were very glad for the additional space, using it as a place to relax with after-dinner drinks or room service breakfast. Floor to ceiling doors open onto the balcony which is teeny yet offers additional charm. The bathroom was tight by American standards but was very clean with plenty of nice toiletries. The only drawback to the room was that there is no dresser, hence you must either live out of your suitcase or unpack all of your items into the closet. The rest of the spaces in the hotel are just as nice as the rooms. The Champagne Bar (which doubles as the breakfast room in the mornings) is candlelit and quiet, creating a very romantic experience. On Valentine’s Day, we enjoyed having a glass of champagne there, choosing to sit beside the gas fireplace in the sitting area of the lobby. Though apparently the continental breakfast is no longer included in the business class room rate, our pre-existing reservation was honored and we enjoyed a good breakfast of pastries, juice, and coffee each morning. We were glad to be able to dine in the hotel, giving us more time to plan our daily sight-seeing. For those who are planning to do lots of sight-seeing, Le Dokhan’s is in a good location, particularly if you’re happy to plenty of walking. For those in decent shape, it’s about a 10-15 minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe and a 10-15 minute walk to Pont d’Iena which leads to the Eiffel Tower. The Trocadero metro stop is just a few blocks away, making it easy to get to other primary destinations in Paris. Overall, we highly recommend this boutique hotel for its comfort, service, ambience, and location.

Room Tip: Business Class was worth it for us. The sitting area made a big difference.

What a quaint place.For those of you with a strong olfactory, you will thoroughly enjoy this place from the moment you walk in; it smells great :) The staff was VERY helpful given our French was not very good. They were friendly, informative, and always willing to take time to assist as needed. I can't say enough about the atmosphere; A nice and intimate sitting area with a lovely fireplace, candles at night. Good b'fast. Maybe a bit pricey, but fairly typical for location. Highly recommend.

This hotel is a bit different to other Radisson/Marriott's I have stayed in around the Champs Elysee.

This hotel has a feeling of history, the Louis Vuitton lift, the classically styled rooms with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The champagne restaurant and waiting area are charming, all supported by some of the friendliest hotel staff that I have had the experience of in any hotel, however it could do with a tiny bit of polish to some bits like the stairway case carpets

The location is great, about 5 minutes from Boissiere station, 10 minutes walk from Trocadero and about 15 to the Eiffel Tower. Personally I find it quicker to come in via RER from CDG airport and free metro connections until you reach your destination (within central Paris), costs about 10 euros (and perfect for those coming at rush hour), change at Chatelet le halle, then Charles de Gaulle Etoile to Boissiere.

I would certainly return again.

My husband booked this as a surprise for my 40th birthday. We arrived on the 14th jan after a long ( and expensive) taxi from CDG due to protests in city centre. We were quickly show to our room. It was tiny! It was clean tho and had a lovely comfortable bed. No tea or coffee making facilities was a real let down. We had to order room service to get coffee in the morning. My husband had emailed ahead to say my birthday fell while we were there but hotel didn't do anything extra which was a shame really. They had said they were would make our stay extra special!
The staff are really lovely and always friendly.
Hotel is near everything which was a great bonus. You could walk a few minutes either way to Eiffel Tower or arc De triomph.
I enjoyed paris so much but this wasn't due to the hotel and next time I will stay somewhere else.

The location is pretty good; not far from the Eiffel Tower and also in walking distance to Arc de Triomphe. The building is very nice and you won't expect a Radisson Blu hotel in it.
When entering you feel the history of this real estate. After entering through the front door, one could think you've been beamed back into the past - I'm not saying it is oldish or even dirty. The interior is very well maintained and looks to be old but functioning, clean and nice to look.
Check-in was smooth and friendly and I even got upgraded to a so called 'Business' room.
The elevator is a highlight - no doubt. Inside it's like an old Luis Vuitton steamer trunk. However, it is far to small for its purpose. The hallway to my 'business' room was narrow and labyrinthinish.
The room I got was on the second floor and unfortunately no view on the Eiffel Tower (the only thing I could see was the floodlight from it above the buildings). I must have been lucky to get 'upgraded' because the room was not really as big as one could expect... I don't want to imagine what my original room looked like.
Anyway, also here the interior was nice, clean and with a touch of last century (at least of the last one).
The friendly concierge recommended a bistro nearby and also reserved a table for me (ok, that's his job).
All in all I's say it's a nice place to be but not the best place to go if you're on a business trip. However, if you're on a (romantic) break this could be a perfect place to start to explore Paris.

What a lovely place, great style, lovely helpful staff in the best location possible, in between Les Champs and Le Trocadero/Tour Eiffel incroyable! The room are warm and cosy decorated in a classic blue and white stripes. We went for a drink at the Champagne bar downstairs before dinner and had a coupe de Champagne so elegantly served in large cut glass I just felt like Madame de Pompadour! Breakfast at Carette is a must just a few steps away on Place Trocadero. We booked it on a Eurostar package amazing value will come back for more!
