Booked this hotel because of all the good reviews on tripadviser. Was not impressed. Very disappointed with this hotel. Restaurants and bars are not near by. had to pay E15 to buy an adopter to charge my ipad. Also location is off the beaten track. Went to a local restaurant and was bland and expensive. Would not recommend it. Cannot understand the good reviews his hotel has got. Very disappointing.

Dear Guest,

We are disappointed that the location of our hotel did not meet your expectations.
What you call “off the beaten track” is a small, quiet, street in the poshest residential area of the capital, the Golden Triangle of Paris (Etoile-Porte Maillot-Porte Dauphine), just a very pleasant 12 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomphe (Etoile) and the Champs Elysées, or a 17 minutes walk from the Trocadéro and its splendid view on the Eiffel Tower.

A Google search will show 8 restaurants within a radius of 500m and we would have been happy to suggest the best one for your taste and budget.

Please correct me if I am wrong but you were given free of cost an adaptor for your iPad for the duration of your stay.

This is our flagship hotel; but we have 4 other newly renovated, spotlessly clean hotels in more 'populous' areas of the city and will be very happy to offer you special conditions to make your next stay in Paris a memorable one.

Kind Regards,

Hotel Residence Foch is located in a quiet residential area down a neat avenue. The hotel is clean, modern and beautifully decorated. Rooms appear to be standard European size though ours had an extra adjoining room for a single bed. Modern bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities in room (always a bonus). We found the reception to be very welcoming. The concierge was very helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations, printing of train tickets (this really was a highlight for us). We didn't try the breakfasts as we wanted to sample local patisseries. Closest top tourist attraction is the Arc de Triomph. Only downside is that we felt that the hotel was a little far outside the main tourist area. Navigating the subway takes a little trial and error if this is your first visit to Paris. Lovely bakery around the corner as well as an Italian restaurant named Del Papas. Bike hire station in close vicinity - probably a good idea to use them instead of walking.

Very comfortable hotel, family orientated, English spoken by all receptionists. Close to two Metro stations for easy access to city centre. Also, excellent local restaurants. We loved the sense of quality and cleanliness, and the hotel's willingness to make allowances for three boisterous boys under the age of ten. Recommended for families with small kids.

Dear Guest,

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to write such a nice a review regarding your recent stay at our property as by experience I kno that once back to daily routine with three kids it is hard to find some time and easy to forget to share your experience on Tripadvisor!!

I was smiling reading your review because we indeed very family oriented as well, the family rooms being very much appreciated. It is always nice to have energetic kids who bring some animation at reception. Yous should see Isabelle when their our babies, she loves them! It is very important for us to have our guest feel home away from home this is also how the hotel was designed as a beautiful Parisian appartment, all rooms being different and cozy.

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back for your next trip to Paris!

Best Regards,

Chic hotel with loads of local restaurants to choose from, of all standards. Not a large room but well organised and equipped so size not a problem. The bathroom was excellent and everywhere was spotlessly clean. All staff really friendly and helpful. The metro (line 1) was a 10-15 minute walk away or 20 minutes to the Arc de Triomphe. For a three night stay at a reasonable room rate it was perfect for us. Btw, breakfast extra at €14 each for which you get lots of choice, buffet style, including fresh boiled eggs.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor, this is very much appreciated.

I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the location wich indeed is very convenient with metro lines 1 & 2. I enjoyed reading your post as, I find your way of describing our rooms very accurate and sweet. We indeed decided to have big bathrooms as we all tend to spend quiet some time getting prepared, especially women, this is why I believe they often mention their surprise of our bathroom sizes!

I am glad that you enjoyed our buffet breakfast as we have really choosen to rather have a small well guarnishedbuffet of good quality and with fresh products instead of a huge fancy buffet but of least quality.

Finally thank you for mentionning our staff as they are the stars of the hotel and they defenitely do make a huge difference and contribute largely to our succes!

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back for your next trip to Paris.

Kind Regards

Our first time in Paris could not have been more comfortable and convenient staying at
Hotel Residence Foch. The hotel is near the sights most want to see with public trans-
portation just a short walk away. The front desk staff was helpful during the check-in
process, they took the time to explain everything we wanted to know about our visit. Our
room was clean and well appointed with a very comfortable bed and a nice view from the
5th floor. No doubt, Hotel R. Foch will be our hotel of choice next time in Paris.

To the staff at Hotel Residence Foch, thank you so much for making us feel at home. We stayed here for a week and could not have asked for anything more.

Damien..... Thank you for going out of your way to make us the best ham sandwiches on a late Tuesday night..... Please tell "Allo Resto" to go to hell. Lol :)

Nathalie..... Thank you for practically being our tour guide. You knew the ins and outs of Paris.

Mohammad..... Chateau de Versailles was a great choice. Flea Market can wait till the next time we come back.

Yahya..... Thank you for being kind and helpful. Sorry to bother you with the middle of the night ice requests. :)

Not sure about the name..... Ana, I believe? (Girl with the glasses)..... We knew from check-in it was going to be a great experience. Thank you for welcoming us from day one and saving us a trip to Versailles on a Monday. :)

Deborah..... Not to take anything way from the staff. But, Thank you for managing such a wonderful staff and hotel. The way you lead by example, shows in the quality of service the hotel provided.

Sincerely,
Marlene and Robert

Excellent smaller hotel very close to the Metro, yet in a quiet neighborhood with excellent restaurants close by. Although the room was on the smaller side, as most are in Europe, the accommodations were superb...great linens, nicely decorated, new bathrooms, etc. the front desk staff were HIGHLY knowledgeable and very willing to offer suggestions, help with logistics, etc. Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review following your recent stay at our property.

I am pleased that you enjoyed our classy neighborhood. Coming from the US or from Asia, guests are indeed often surprised by the room sizes in Europe. This is certainlythe price to pay for the beauty of our city and our buildings! We therefore also get to master the art of maximizing our space! I am glade that regardless the size you found our rooms superb!

Be assured that I have shares your satisfaction about the service with each team member and I thank you on their behalf as they all were very pleased.

We look forward to welcoming you in a not so distant future.

Kind Regards,
