“Great hotel in a great location”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Great location in a nice and quiet neighbourhood close to the fabulous food shops at Madeleine and fashion in Rue St Honoré. Rooms are modern and at the same time very cosy. Beautiful beds and nice bathrooms. Staff is very helpful and friendly. It's our third stay at the hotel and we will definitely return.

Dear Pia M.,

First of all, thank you ! Thank you for your loyalty to our hotel.

It’s very important for us to see that our returning guests keep on enjoying the services of the Hotel, and the design of their rooms.

As you mentioned, all the rooms of the Hotel du Ministère are equipped with excellent beds, provided by the same supplier than ones of the most important palaces in Paris.

The location of the Hotel du Ministère, is one other asset. Two steps from Champs Elysées avenue, Galeries Lafayette and the street Saint Honoré… it’s the perfect place to stay for shopping ! This very central position in the city makes easy also all the visits to the main attractions of the city.

We look forward welcoming you again for your 4th stay at Hotel du Ministere !

Best regards

Isabelle Thos

Conveniently located from Champs Elysees, Madeleine & St. Honore, the shopping areas. Room & bathroom decent size with modern & playful decor, love the large window. Wifi connection was reliable and fast. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a gym but did not have time to try. Will stay again next time.

Dear Natalieb236,

It’s such a delight to read your very positive review regarding your recent stay at Hotel du Ministere!
Your satisfaction is very important to us and our entire team is sincerely sensitive to all the comments of our guests.
The Hotel du Ministere has an excellent location to start a day of tourism and shopping in Paris. Then, at the end of the day, you come back in a safe and secured area (just near the President’s House) and relax in your comfortable room or have a glass of organic French wine at the bar of the hotel.
We look forward to welcoming you again for your third stay at Hotel du Ministere,

With my very best regards

We stayed here for over a week on business, and the same as our visit this time last year it was perfect for our needs. The deluxe rooms have a bit more space for a longer stay, but all of the beds are very comfortable and bathrooms modern, it all feels very fresh. The breakfast is great value, with friendly and helpful service and most of all everyone at reception is incredibly helpful - not always a given in Paris!

My only request would be for more hanging space. The closets are extremely limited in full length hanging space...a freestanding coat stand would be a useful addition for anyone staying longer than a few days. Otherwise all amenities such as iron, ironing board, hair dryer etc were fully provided.

We will definitely return, and would highly recommend to anyone who needs to be in this area.

Room Tip: Go for deluxe rather than the standard if you can. Be aware that as with many Paris hotels the rubbi...

Dear Ktbythesea,

Thank you so much for your very kind review.

The well- being of our clients is our priority and we are honored that you appreciated.

In your comment, you mentioned the comfort of our beds, which are premium bedding worthy of Palace hotels .

Our breakfast is served as a buffet, offering a large variety of fresh and organical products: eggs, salmon, sausages, different varieties of bread, croissants and other French pastries, different sort of cakes, fruits, cereals, etc…

We look forward to welcoming you again in our property,

Warm regards

I am a regular visitor to this hotel, and very much enjoy staying here. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the rooms and common areas are well designed with quality fixtures and fittings. The beds are also exceptionally comfortable. I always sleep very well, with no disturbances from inside or outside the hotel. I can understand other comments regarding limited storage/hanging space for clothes, but as I never stay more than 2 nights at a time this has not been an issue for me. The breakfast buffet is just right for me, with a nice choice of fresh, quality produce.

The location is very convenient, being a short stroll from the rue du Faubourg St Honore and Place de la Madelaine etc. For those travelling on the Eurostar, it is circa €12 in a taxi from Gare du Nord.

I highly recommed this hotel for business or pleasure.

I've stayed in this hotel a few times now and I really like it, the rooms are small which is typical of Paris but they are well designed and make the most of the space. The receptionist was most helpful especially when I discovered that I had got my dates mixed up on my booking. She immediately arranged a room for the evening and helped to find me another room for the next night (as they were full) and cancelled my mistaken reservation. The breakfast is typical continental but very nice and all in all I had a good stay. The only problem was that my room smelled a little of drains, I managed to sort this by opening the window so not too much of a problem.

It is an excellent boutique hotel.
The hotel has not a large number of rooms which makes it cosy and home-like.
Interior is modern but with an art-deco touch.
We stayed in a junior suite which was exquisite! Spacious and trendy decorated with several nice gadgets (design telephone, radio-clock with iPod/iPhone-dock, 100cm LCD TV, design espresso device).
This hotel has an ideal location for sightseeing (close to Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde, la Bourse, Opera, ...) and also for shopping (close by Champs Elysées, Rue Fbg St Honoré, Galleries Lafayette Haussmann, ...).
Service is also exquisite. With our booking we ordered a bottle of champagne on the room. It was there, as promised in an ice bucket, perfectly chilled.
We didn't open it the first night and we asked the following morning to put it on ice again for later that day. When we returned around the evening, the bottle was there again in a new ice bucket. Just perfect!!

Will defenately return when in Paris again. Hopefully soon ;-)

Room Tip: Junior suite, no hesitation. Check the site for last minute discounts.

Dear Robby V,

We thank you so much for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay at Hotel Du Ministere on Tripadvisor!

As you said, our hotel is a Boutique hotel, which means that we have few rooms, very comfortable, and designed with taste. This small capacity is also the reason of our very personalized service.

We are happy to know that you appreciated the location of our hotel as our quiet street is just near the most famous shopping places, and other places of interest (Concorde, Champs Elysées, Opéra…).

We pay great attention to the needs of all our guests, to make their stay in Paris unforgettable.

The whole team sincerely hopes to welcome you back in the near future!

Warm regards
