Not bad, quite expensive, especially when you factor in that you have to pay €21 extra per day per computer (we're two people with two laptops) for internet, plus quite a bit more for taxes and breakfast and parking. Ultimately our €475 room came to about €750 per night with all the extras. Room service food is outrageously expensive - €36 for breakfast - plus tax, gratuity, room service fee, all comes to about €55 and that's if you don't tip the guys either. And, watch the bill, they have habit of charging for extra items that should be included in your breakfast set. The staff were mostly efficient but cold or indifferent and the maid's service was either dumb or lazy or both. They'd always miss things or forget to clean our room or leave the breakfast tray in the room while cleaning everything else. I guess that's room service's job, not theirs?
central location in room tv very bad overall: choice of channels, image, etc air con would only heat and not cool-only way to sleep was to open window
I was pleasantly surprised that such comfortable and business-friendly property at the heart of Paris existed. Aside from the rate, I think the hotel was excellent in all aspects for a person travelling on business who has a little spare time for some leisure. As I stated, I thought the rate was a bit on the high side given it's location.
Location great, friendly helpful staff, they had flowers, champagne and cake in room on arrival, beautiful touch.
The level of service of the Hilton Chain and its luxury
Pleasant and helpfull staff ,good atmosphere in hotel The hotel has a lovely bar however at 14 euros for a beer you won't stay long
Service was excellent, and the Purple Bar was Fantastic.
The room and comfort of the bed and friendliness of the staff could not get selection of movie channels and had no confirmation from the engineer sent to the room as to when it would be operational again.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Refreshing to get this kind of service...
The hotel in very good location
good location,Spacious room,and clean the internet in business center is not free,unlike other hotels
Location and only the location is the best thing for this hotel Old firntures , old paints , bad semll from the toilet and the very old carpets which looks more than 30 years used !!! at the end the price is very expensive for the room status and the room level , i did't recommend this hotel
the hotel as a whole nothing
Very good location - great staff - great rooms Parking was not easy - unloading luggage almost impossible - No room Service
Location Room service too bad
The staff were extremely friendly and heplful. The room was very nice and the location excellent. Unfortunately, the hotel was underoing renovations (something which was not mentioned on the web site and we did not find out about until we were actually in our room). We had to put up with drilling noises from 9am to 5pm on the 3 days that we were there. When we asked to be moved to a different room we were told that this was not possible, however they promised to refund us 100 euros. I have a feelinf had we not booked the 'discount' price we would have been allocated a room in a different location.
Great attention, all star was always trying to give us the best experience
Hotel staff were trying their best and cooperative The hotel was understaffed compared to the occupancy rate
How the hotel looks like residence, the kitchen should stay the same as the first day, and dont the service getting worst day by day, the suplies getting poor. The first day should be the same as last day.
The location is perfect. When we arrived the television didn't work but they fixed it the next day. Also, a friend left an envelope for me at the desk and it was never delivered to me. Otherwise it was fine.
Prefessional and friendly staf
Location and decor Rooms quite small
Location of Napoleon Paris is excellent. We stayed in the superior room and its size is really big. It is great value of money.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was amazing the view from our balcony was superb excellent stay overall would have liked if breakfast was included in the rate
In general everything was very good. The room was a very nice and a very good size for Paris. I paid €160 for the night which was very good value for a hotel of this standard in this location. My bed had a dip in the middle
Location is superb. Near to all fascilities and amneties Being along the main road, its somewhat noisy
Breakfast buffet Internet conexion should be included in the price of the room as many hotels do
Location and the comfort of the suite. Clean linen, well thought interior. Charming decor Nothing other than the smell of cigarette smoke in the suite. Cigarette butts were found on the carpet on second day after housekeeping.
Our room spacious, very comfortable. we were close to metro - shopping - it was a great location and a great place to stay - we would stay there again!
location only need some renovation for the rooms furniture was too old
The ambience, the friendly staff and the proximity to city attractions
The staff - everyone is very helpful wifi should be more accessable almost everywhere within the hotel
Very good location just few steps from Champs Elysees and metro station. prices
great location, good staff, large room, happy overall Quite expensive. The early morning noise mentioned by some reviewers is true & we experienced this on both days of our stay.
Hotel staff, services, Staff courtesy
Old world style. Staff excellent. Very personal.
Hospitality of hoel staff At 29 euros per person, breakfast is quite expensive.
airconditioning was not very effective despite my changing the room.
Atendimento da recepção e concierge. Housekeepers should make less noise and be more gentle when closing the room doors. They should start working after nine o´clock and attend the customers requirements more acurately. Matress is too softy and unconfotable and unable to provide a good sleeping.
Severly understaffed and any service requested takes quite a while. Rooms were not cleaned on on time, until we requested specifically to clean them in the evening. Turndown service was done on 1 day of 4. Used glasses from the minibar were not replaced for 3 days. Waited 1 hour for check-in after arriving at 4pm on a Friday. etc.
The rooms are great as are the staff.
Overal was good. Room service selection was limited in choices. I Bar only have French Menue and no English. No English Channel on TV only CNN. Mentioned above
The location is just fantastic - the hotel is located in 2 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees, with nice shops and restaurants all around! Hotel staff is nice. Breakfast was very nice with a good variety, a bit expensive though (31 euros per person, free for kids). Free internet in room (luxury room). Variety of tv channels was very poor.
The Sofitel Hotel is well located and within walking distance of the Champ Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe as well as the Charles De Gaulle Metro. This allows for good connectivitey. There are also some good inexpensive eateries nearby. We mentioned that we were coming on the Honeymoon in our notes but we were treated as if I was the Sole occupier of the room. The Honeymoon touch was missing a bit especially since we read about another review who were treated specially for theri honeymoon.
we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the lovely room.the location was outstanding and staff very helpfull our shower screen was off the rollers but it didn't cause us any grief
Courteous, professional staff. Central location.Comfortable plush rooms. No tea/coffee making facilities or indeed mini-bar in the room which is surprising giving the standard of the hotel.
This is a very nice hotel at a distinctive location location in Paris. The staff are so helpful, I was helped by a professional concierge team who spoke excellent English and know Paris attractions very well. The staff was polite, food was good, and the facilities are all clean and up to date.
Hotel stuffs, and concierge were very kindly. Also, room and bath was very clean. Location was nice.
The proximity to all the central areas of Paris and also it was very quite and a very beautiful hotel. The breakfast was very expensive and not worth the money.
the fast service in the hotel was great , the location was excllent , the breakfast was bad no food varaities .
Rooms too small, expected larger as per booking info
Hotel very near Chapms Eleysee, shops and restaurants. Prices in bar very very expensive. Breakfast very expensive at 28 euro each.Had breakfast outside hotel at 1/4 of the price.
Our stay at the Hotel Balzac was wonderful.Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, as was the rest of the hotel.The staff were very helpful and attended to our every need.Great location too!
Great location, great hotel, great staff! They upgraded us to an awesome room with a spectacular view for free the attendant was very nice and helpful.
Hotel was under construction (and for quite some time apparently) so I'll spare you with the details of what that means when you are trying to catch up on some much needed sleep. Staff responded poorly to this situation that was not communicated ahead. Very dissapointing. One last thing, te hotel seems to be weel located because few hundred meters from champs Elysee but it is quite a dead area at night.
The staff was most courteous and helpful. The hotel was very convenient to the heart of Paris and many of its attractions. I recommend that reservations be re-confirmed prior to travelling to avoid any confusion.
location & style
Location, style, very friendly and professional staff at front desk and concierge Room not very spacious, no gym/spa
We loved the central location, across from the Louvre and the Gardens of Toulerie as well as the view of the Eiffel Tower. Sightseeing, shopping and all types of dining were within walking distance. There was nothing unpleasant about this hotel.
Great atmosphere, helpful staff.
Location and attention to detail by a superb staff
location room cleanliness and set_up
Seasonal decorations are amazing in the lobby. There is a grand Christmas tree that is very welcoming and adds a cozy atmosphere. Location is great as well. Being walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe and 20 mins walk to the Eiffel was great. Also, there is the FDR metro line 1 steps from the hotel. This is an added bonus as the metro line is a great way to navigate the city. Champs Elysees was beautiful during Christmas time. The entire avenue was lit up with Christmas lights. The staff was attentive for the most part. They provided outlet converters, and a lint brush for my wool jacket. The breakfast though expensive was delicious. Marriott has an american feel to their menu which is a plus. The check in was surprising lacking. We waited 4 hours at the hotel to check in after flying 20+ hours. It was a dismal experience that I would like to forget. Upon entering the room I was further disappointed with the design, size and view for the money i spent - $500+ per night. The decor didn't feel parisian at all (Although a subjective statement, I have other hotels in paris to compare the marriott too) It isn't that the bed wasn't comfortable, or that the bathroom wasn't great -it was. It had a large tub and bath salts, but i could have received those benefits with their basic room. The skyline view was a joke! It was a view of the vents and smoke billowing off the roofs of the next door neighbor hotels and there was nothing worth noting from our vantage point. My recommendation is that either you go all out and book the champs elysees view (street view) or book the cheapest room they have. I regret booking my room and wish I could have spent the money elsewhere.
Reception & Concierge Staff were knowledgeable, helpful, & courteous Didn't give me good directions to their Garage when asked, as it's very difficult to find
The location is very good. Unfortunately there are a lot of management issues there. The front desk, the concierge and the stuff of the lobby bar are nothing to do with the efficiency expected from a five stars hotel stuff.
our money was stolen from our room when we were out for disney land!! we found this on the last day when we should check out. the hotel promised to invistegate and get back to us but as of now and despite of all remiders we didnt get any reply from thier side. our money was stolen from our room when we were out for disney land!! we found this on the last day when we should check out. the hotel promised to invistegate and get back to us but as of now and despite of all remiders we didnt get any reply from thier side.
It was very convenient , the staff were very friendly.
Location of the hotel Overpriced
It was a great location,people were very polite..Would go back again On Saturday I rented a car for 4 hours and had a personal tour of Paris in a Mercedes Benz..Cost $370.00 Euros..Great!!!!On Tuesday I booked car to take me to the airport but did not ask the price as I trusted the people to be fair...When I checked out of the hotel they put the charge on my invoice 320.00 Euros for a 35 minute ride to the airport..I guess they didn't think I would notice..After haggling they lowered the price to 277.00 Euros which was still way too high..Be aware that as they were very nice if you let your guard down for a second these people will grab every pennie they can from your wallet!!!!!!
Convenient location and nice room the lack of service
very noesy the room is two levels which make very diffecult to move and less space nothing
nothing. The hotel is very bad and very expensive it is fare away from the normal Marriot standart. I am negativly suprices. Over all the price is absolutely not corresponding with the quality of the rooms especially. I will never choose more that hotel
Great breakfast. Large, quiet rooms. Great central location. Close to public transport to Roland Garros and only 20 euro cab ride. Walking distance of Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower. None
Hotel location and staff courtesy. Breakfast is very expensive and not good value for money.
Poor state of the room, however very nice terrace. Not quite what it could and should be for 300€.
location and the personnel at the rception the room should be renovated
the balcony with eiffel tower view and 30 seconds walking to the champs-elysees 24-h roomservice
This staff was very pleasant. The elevator was very slow. My room was on the 6th floor but found taking the stairs was sometimes much quicker than waiting for the elevator.
Very nive hotel, good work of reception bad internet
interior design and location very small rooms and bathroom, and room service was horrible.
Loved the room. Beautifully decorated. Wonderful bathroom. Very quiet and comfortable. Fantastic location. The lights were very confusing. The hotel made arrangements with a car service to go to the airport. I thought the woman told me it would be 61 Euros and could be paid in cash or credit. It was actually 74 Euros and could only be paid in cash. This was the third airport transfer while visiting Paris and by far the most expensive.
I like the location, staff are very nice. Internet access in the room are bad.
the bed was comfortable the toilet was very very very bad
Breakfast is very nice. Elevator was broken during our stay.
from the moment we set foot in hotel there was nothing that the staff couldn't do for us..very helpful and courteous.really made my stay in Paris something to remember for a while..loved the personalized welcome letter .
the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, the employees were very nice and proffisional, and the location was just excellent as Vernet St. was located by champs elysee and george VI road. Hotel Lobby was small and the internet connection was very low.
The friendliness of the staff, the service and the centrality of the hotel. Thank you. It was a pity that the restaurant was closed.
Location was approperiate for my business meetings around the city. Poor value for money. Absolutely not a 4 star Paris standards. Extremely small room. Unheated bathroom. Aminities were not regularly refreshed. Decor of reception and public areas is basic and rundown.
I booked this hotel because it was listed on the leading small hotels of the world. This recommendation has not failed me. I have traveled to paris and the rest of europe to know that the standards are different than four plus hotels in the usa. The hotel vernet did have good sized rooms and our room had a balcony which is great. The bedding was excellent. The staff was excellent, including front desk personel, the concierge was fabulous, as well as the bellman, bartenders, and wait staff in the dining room. All the employees addressed me by name after the first day. That shows how much they put themselves out. Lights in the bathroom were not adequate for shaving or applying makeup. Pillows were foam which we don't like. Should be feather pillows.
Friendly and helpful staff and nice room WIFI at our room was a bit weak. Main elevator was not working and everyone had to use staff elevator instead, which is a bit small.
location poor advice from concierge
The staff was so friendly & the hotel location was ideal we had so much fun there I'm going to stay there next visit to paris
Small, quaint, quiet. The rooms need updating.
The location is excellent as it is behind Champs Elysees but yet very quiet. The staff, especially the concierge is very helpful and they all speak excellent English. The walls between the rooms are a little thin. I could hear footsteps and voices from the other room when it was occupied.
The hotel is superbly located, very comfortable, with wery friendly and helpful staff
Friendly staff, and very good size of room. Most facilities available. Breakfast only dining room.
The staff was incredibly helpful. Not only were they multilingual but they went out of their way to accommodate for our needs pointing out good restaurants and good places to tour. Given the American standards for comfort about bathroom necessities, the shower was a bit awkward and we found it took much longer to shower when compared to the typical American standards. Ultimately, the issue did not proove to be a burnden to our trip.
My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during November. We found the hotel to be fantastic. The design and layout perfect. Location couldnt be better if you want to wish to shop around in the big department store Galerie. The best part of the hotel was the wonderful staff. I found all of them to be superb and their english fault less!. We even forgot a mobile in the room and when we phoned the hotel to check if it was there they offered to bring it to us! This was fanstastic as we were waiting at the bus stop for the airport bus. Thats service!!!
Hotel Burgundy is very well situated in the Opera district, and was a great "home base" for seeing the sights of Paris. The hotel is quite small, but clean and good value for money.
The location is perfect as it is in the city center. Spa and indoor swimming pool as well as professional massage. Car parking services was great as it is almost impossible to park anywhere in Paris. The bed mattress was not comfortable as compared to other five stars hotels.
Hotel was very well located, minutes walk from sights and attractions. Our room was luxuriously presented, designer style in black, grey with cherry red accent colours. Bathroom included large bath and separate shower.The ambience in reception is very welcoming, candles lit and very fragrant with attentive staff. There is a spa at the Hotel which my husband enjoyed. Our room was located at the front of the building and we were disturbed by delivery vans, refuse vans in the early hours of every morning. We would stay at the Hotel again but request a quietly located room at the back of the building.
We had a beautiful modern bath and a spacious room that comfortably accomodated my mother, daughter and myself. The front desk staff was helpful in providing directions and making reservations. We never had to wait in line at the desk. The location was superb. We had a wonderful experience here. The lounge area is a bit dark and cramped so this is a hotel that is best suited for exploring the city and returning to a comfortable room for relaxing and a great night's sleep.
Everything was great. It's a beautiful hotel with a lovely decoration. Very clean, the staff is helpfull and sympathetic. Excellent location, just behind the rue St. Honore. We were really impressed and will recommend it to our friends.
Convenience & closeness to hub of city sights & metro network. Price a little too steep
The hotel was beautiful, spa terrific, and the indoor/outdoor aspect of the Lobby restaurant was lovely for enjoying a spate of mild fall weather. Service is top-notch. The rooms are functionally terrific - huge for Paris standards. Bathrooms are drool-worthy marble palaces. Concierge staff knowledgeable and super helpful. Unless you are strolling the Champs for luxury boutiques one can find in any large city or having business meetings in the western arrondissements, the location isn't great. This can be easily overcome with Uber or taxis, but I would have preferred a more central location like Ritz/Crillon (both closed for renovation), or Le Meurice (I'm supporting the boycott). The design of the bedrooms errs more on the Asian side of Asia-French fusion, while I would have preferred something more distinctively Parisian, but this is a very minor gripe. If I were traveling for business, the serenity/calmness would normally be a plus.
I find that the mark of an excellent hotel is when you look back at your trip and the hotel was a main character. The Peninsula Paris exceeded my expectations. L'Oiseau Blanc is a must-see (they have a plane over-looking the Seine and the Eiffel Tower). The "Dancing Leaves" art installation in the lobby is absolutely stunning. They have a neat app for kids with fun games. Most importantly, the staff is a class act. One of the only drawbacks was the lockerroom for the gym/spa. Each of the four showers did not have body wash nor soap (they had three bottles in each stall. One wss labeled "conditioner", the other was labelled "shampoo" and the third bottle was labeled "shampoo" and/or "hand lotion"). Also the hand-held shower in one of the stalls was broken. It was disappointing. The other drawback is that the check-in is actually not at the main entrance on Avenue Kleber. After our driver unloaded our baggage a valet attendant walked out from the long sidewalk from the hotel and said to put our bags back in the car and drive around the corner, to the less-prominent side entrance on Avenue Portugais, for check-in. We decided to walk with our suitcases around the corner and commented amongst ourselves that the Peninsula could have handled it differently (i.e. since the attendant was not at his post nor was there a sign he could have offered to have someone gather our suitcases; it was awkward).
The staff is really nice, the facilities are modern and is very very close to all the good stuff and the Ecole Militaire Metro Station which let's you go basically anywhere. It a very good hotel and I would definitely recommend it at the right price(4 star hotel price) The hotel is good but definitely not a 5 star. This is a good 4 star hotel in my opinion. The facilities are modern but not fancy and the rooms are super small, I know, this is europe but my room in a 4 star hotel in downtown Bruges was much bigger then this one and cheaper. And my opinion is not based in just that, I'm also considering that I have stayed at other 5 star hotels(in Europe and other places) and they are definitely better. I wouldn't consider this a 5 star hotel. A very good 4 star hotel, FOR SURE, but NOT a 5 star.
Very helpful and courteous staff. The hotel is in need of refurbishment. It will be very difficult to remain classified as **** unless this is done very soon. The 'free' wi-fi is very slow in the rooms.
The location and the hotel staff
The location cannot be beat...rooms are large and very clean. There is a computer room with free internet access, 5 computers and printers. This was a rare treat. I will stay here again. Drink prices at the bar are ridiculously high. Two small drinks 38 euros..I could buy the bottle for that.
Comfortable room , wifi ok , toilets were clean The staff was very rude . When I requested a half an hour delay in check out time , they threatened to barge in the room exactly at 12.00 . I had to tell them , if they like I can walk in underpants in the lobby and dress up there !!!! Very impolite and rude for a four star hotel . Never choose this hotel , whatever the good review might say....
The close proximity to both the Metro and Eiffel Tower, River Seine were the only plusses. The room was spacious, but even thought tea/coffee sachets were supplied, there were no cups. We asked 3 times before cups were provided, then the cups were not replaced on the following day. In addition, toilet paper was not replenished and we asked but without success. The bathroom floor had not been cleaned and there were large strands of hair in the toilet on arrival. All in all, housekeeping left alot to be desired.
The whole experience was excellent -- I was very impressed. Staff were unfailingly attentive, the dinner excellent, the breakfast full of available variety. The view of the tower from the balcony impressed my grand-daughter!I am not all that easily pleased, so not inclined to easily give high ratings, but I have to say that every aspect of the stay was excellent. Nothing.
Location & friendlyness. Location & friendlyness.
The view of the Eiffel Tower was worth the cost of the hotel. The furniture was a little shabby for the price of the room.
the breakfast buffet was incredible. Great variety, amount and quality. We also loved that the staff controlled entry to the buffet area so everyone got seated nicely and it kept the start of the mornings pleasant. The free Wi-Fi they offer is a bit too slow to do much, so it is almost necessary to buy the upgrade for 22 Euros/day they offer.
Location n view of eiffel
The hotel room is so spacious and comfortable. The location is so close to Eiffel Tower. None
Location & service are really good! They gave me a present at my birthday surprisingly.
Location, staff support, comfort, friendliness
Hotel staff are ok, but need more english speaking staff if possible Location, location
The location near to everywhere, the bed is extraordinary comfortable ! Only for the breakfast rooms need more improvement, more bigger for more guests.

The Location which central to tourist sites + the cleanliness of the room
i liked its central location the staff where very knowledgeable and the beds and bed linen were out of this world it was my birthday during our stay and was given a bottle of champagne i disliked the prices
superb hotel, superb staff, couldnt do enough for you. yes it is a lot of money, but for a treat and/or special occasion highly, highly reccomended
Bathroom small and uncomfortable and needs to be redesign
The staff is amazing. Room always clean. Great location
The room was quite small but fine for me. I cant really imagine sharing it with anyone - I had filled the small closet and two shelves for clothing. The people at the hotel were nice. The toilet was a separate room and was very small. Too small for my liking.
breakfast was great we missed our flight because the front desk/concierge team could not arrange the taxi to arrive on time (even though we were assured the night before that we would have plenty of time and that their taxi partners always came early or on time, never late).
location decor friendly It had plumbing issues. i.e.. oder . Cleaning staff was noisy in the mornings. Staff needs training. This is not a five star Hotel.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel room was pleasant with a fine view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. The restaurant menu was very expensive but this is to be expected in the middle of Paris. We didn't eat in!
Great location, personal service Small room
soft matresses missed more equipment in bathroom
the staff, the room, the ease of the staff and the location
the location and the design of the hall the rooms are quite small and the rooms on the court which are very calm have the view on a part which has to be still restored
The location is absolutely superb. Towards the end of our stay the service deteriorated, e.g. room was only serviced late in the afternoon on 2 days
The hotel is located in the most central part of Paris, walking distance to all major touris attractions. The staff is very polite and welcoming very helpful as well. The room and common area design to perfection. The food in the Resturant is to die for. Very nice hotel worth every penny. You can't get food after 12pm even though the menu says 24/7
Atention of the staff is excellent. The hotel shows pictures on the Internet rooms that have been renovated and hence modern and luxurious; however, the room we stayed has not been renovated at all and furniture, carpet and design were old.
