after reading all of the great reviews on TA, we book our reservation 2-3 months in advance and was so disappointed upon arrival that we changed our hotel after one night.
we arrived early and our room was ready and they allowed us early check in which was very kind. However, there was no one there to help with our luggage and no one to show us the room and give us a short orientation of how the hotel function etc, which was a bit odd and disappointing. there was no one to help us into the the hotel from our taxis or help with our luggage at all. We were given the keys at the front desk and simple direction to the lift and after that we were on our own.
when we walked into our room it was very very disappointing, we booked their top room available (superior). and if this is their best room I hate to see the other class rooms. It was very small, the bath room could not fit two persons in there at a time. and getting in and out of the shower was tricky to maneuver.
the toilette was in this separate room that looked like a broom closet with no ventilation or window, this was not an inviting experience to sit on the throne for ANY duration of time, not that anyone wants to spend that much time on the throne. There was hair left in the shower from the previous guest and that was even more depressing.
The closet space was none existent and there was no room for two people's clothes staying for any reasonable duration of time. Their safe in the room did not work and that was very inconvenient.
We try the breakfast the fruit salad was not very fresh or tasty and I barely could have finish it and the coffee tasted like bath water and the person there on saturday was not very friendly or helpful. the next morning the person was much nicer and the expresso was well done. ( we did not order regular coffee given the poor experience the day before) the breakfast room was very dreary and added to the overall depressing experience.
the straw that broke the camel's back was that The carpeting in our room looked very old and dirty, so much so we did not wanted to walk on it without our shoes. It was a very depressing room and we could not have stand it for 11 nights.
we had our computer with us and we book another room at the K + K Hotel for their executive room for about the same price per night and we are soooooo very happy we did that. we really love the K+K hotel, it is really head and shoulder above the Hotel Relais Bosquet Paris and I think if we were not able to do that, it would have ruined our Paris vacation for sure.
We travel the world multiple times per year and stay at many boutique hotels, and this is the first time we moved out after one night.
we did not find the staff overly welcoming or helpful, and our impression of the hotel Relais Bosquet is very dreary and depressing. We could not recommend the Hotel to anyone.
