“Great location, but that's what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This hotel is literally 30 seconds walk from Place Vendome - it backs onto the Ritz. A very good base from which to explore central Paris. Lots of decent restaurants locally. However, nearest Metro is Opera, about a ten minute walk, slightly uphill. As I say, great location, and the prices here are quite steep, but where you are accounts for a lot of the price. Tiny en-suite. Room comfortable, and ok breakfast, but an extra cost for anything over and above a basic continental, such as fried eggs, etc. Good coffee though.

DirectionMansart, Directeur général at Hotel Mansart, responded to this review, April 9, 2013
Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

We thank you for having taken the time to leave your comments on Tripadvisor concerning your last visit at the hotel Mansart .

It is a pleasure to read that you appreciated the location of the Hotel Mansaty, the attitude of the staff, the size of the rooms and the way the lobby area was refurbished.

We try to keep the rhythm of 4 rooms completely refurbished every year with the same spirit as for the lobby area and breakfast lounge (old furniture with modern colors for pillows, curtains, etc..) plus the entire bathroom. For the other rooms we keep an eye frequently with the housekeeper in order to maintain a quality of comfort by changing a carpet, make painting works and light refurbishments.

The hotel Mansart is an old House, that is one of the reason why the ground made of wood is creaking sometimes and also the size of some corridors which are a bit tiny.

I will send you a private message in order to recheck with you the room you occupied and maybe place it in priority for future complete refurbishments.

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again in the near future in order to show you that you made the right choice by making your reservation at the Mansart hotel.

Yours sincerely.

Emmanuel Gamez
Hotel Manager

great management and staff. Outstanding property and location.
If you are looking for a place in Paris, then the Mansart is the right answer.......don't miss out on this. Walking the city of the many lights and enjoy the easy access to all major sights and eatery......don't miss out a croissant experience in Paris...there is nothing like it.

The Hotel Mansart is at the Place Vendome .It's in a wonderful location! I was there in late November - the lighted Christmas decorations in Place Vendome and the nearby stores were delightful .Just around the corner was a fabulous shop with croissants and quiche. From my room I could look out my window and view the street below.The room's furnishings were stylish yet practical.The downstairs lobby was tastefully decorated. The desk personnel were helpful, yet I missed the Hotel Mansart that I had stayed in many years ago. The price for a room has quadupled and the ambiance isn't the same. I would stay here again due to the location. You can take the Roissy bus from Charles De Gaulle Airport right to the Place Opera for 10 euros. We easily walked to The Musee D'Orsay to see impressionist paintings.We ate at Nomad's after it was recommended by the front desk. My husband was sick all night due to food poisoning.I'd stick the croissants and quiche on my next trip there. I love Paris, but this experience was not as marvelous as it could have been. I can't wait, however , to return to this section of Paris for a more extended stay.

Room Tip: I liked overlooking the street where I could view Paris from our balcony.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rates are reasonable particularly for the area. We stayed in room 409 which did not seem to have been refurbished and whilst it was clean and comfortable it was a little tired. The refurbished rooms are much nicer as our friends had one and definitely worth the price. Ask for a refurbished room and you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for New Years. The hotel is lovely; spacious and warm and is in a fantastic central location with metro stops close by and lots of brasseries and bistros also very close.

We stayed in a classic room - 211 which unfortunately stank of smoke. So much so that even leaving the balconette winows open for 12 hrs did nothing but make the room freezing. I asked to change and was told that the hotel was all non-smoking and the hotel was full. We changed on new years day but had to pay to upgrade as there was no availability. Given the stench it would have been nice for them to change rooms without charging us but 211 smelt so bad that I would have paid double to move. Even to another hotel.

However room 212 was really lovely. The breakfast was one of the best continental breakfasts I've ever had and the staff were incredibly courteous and helpful.

I would definitely return. Just not to room 211.

Room Tip: 212 was lovely - stay away from 211

We had 4 great nights in the Mansart. The hotel is renovated but the old furniture is still used. A great combination from old and new. The Superior room was very spacious room on the backside. Even with open window at night we didnot hear any noise outside. We had only some noise from neighbour rooms.The bed were new and of a super quality. Could also take coffee/tea in the room.
The bathroom was also spacious and very modern with 2 douches (1 douche very large). The interiour of the hotel is very cosy and we felt us like home! The location on the Place Vendome is the top! You can easily walk to other parts of the town. The metrostation Opera is about 200 mtr.
The staff is very friendly and will help you if you want. The breakfast was very good; a small buffet and also many things bringing to your table. Very improved since our visit some years ago. The lobby is also renovated. The hotel has no restaurant but can arrange roomservice during some daily hours. We could not menstion some negative items. Next time we will choose again the Mansart. We want to thank the staff.
When you book the hotel directly you can ask for some prefferences.

Room Tip: The backside is more quiet. The frontside on the Rue de Capucines is not real noisy. The street is...

Stayed here for 6 nights. Room was on the large size for Paris, bathroom small and my husband didn't care for the tub with hand shower and no shower curtain to contain water from rest of room....understand this is quite typical in Paris. Recommend their continental breakfast, not much variety, standard, but hot coffee and last couple days added scrambled eggs and sausage, service very good. The desk staff were mostly terrific, Antony was so helpful, he translated a french e-mail for me and twice actually walked us outside to get us headed in right direction...others were good, there is an older women who is unfriendly but she knows her stuff and passes it on to younger staff. Very good location, good value for area, clean, safe, free wifi
Understand prices in area very quite a bit depending on time of year, no pool or fitness area.
