Positives: the outdoor pool is clearly amazing and was lovely to use after a hard day's sightseeing. Breakfast very good. Concierge extremely helpful.
Negatives: on arrival, the 2 connecting rooms we had pre-booked & confirmed online for our family of 4 were “no longer available”. This caused a prolonged, tedious hassle at check-in, as they didn’t know where to put us. The hotel's attitude was more "aloof shrug" than apologetic & they did nothing to compensate.
We were eventually allocated 2 rooms on the same floor but a long way apart (luckily our children were old enough for this to be OK). Beware if you have young children & connecting rooms are essential!
There was an overpowering, sickly fragrance in the air-con system piped throughout the hotel - entrance and bedrooms. What on earth is the point of this? But with the bedroom window open to get rid of fragrance there was noise from the bar downstairs until the early hours.
Standard rooms are modern but small. Tiny bathroom with glass walls. Some lights in the room did not work, including the bedside light - only after several hours passed & repeated requests to Reception was a lamp found by a lovely maintenance guy.
Overall an OK if extortionate stay but only because of the pool.
Another lovely stay at The Molitor. Relaxing bed and pillows. The room overlooks open air pool. Shower luxurious with clarins products.
Breakfast is varied and plentiful. Pain au chocolat is the best!Great location and near to subway and lots of restaurants.
We stayed with our teenagers : this hotel has the best pools! We could swim in the indoor pool in the morning, and we could enjoy the outdoor pool in the late afternoon after visiting beautiful Paris. Hotel has amazing modern and street art pieces throughout. Food and rooms were great (amazing pastries at breakfast). The only negative comment is that on the first day that we arrived, we were sent to the next door of the hotel to access the roof top restaurant (which we could not access through the hotel because the rooms were not ready). There is a private club and the staff acted very condescending towards us, telling us « this is a private club » instead of directing us to the roof top. If there is a family of 4 that looks tired and enter the « private club » early afternoon, chances are their room is simply not ready and they should be directed to the roof top restaurant ! ;-) That’s the only negative comment I have. I will be going back to this great hotel.
This was the second 5star hotel I stayed in during a six week touring holiday of Europe and all have been judged fairly against each other!
Yes , the pools are outstanding, and the staff are are super friendly, however you don’t sleep in the pool .
My bedroom (suite 120) was also really very nice, although at €680 a night it should be.... so why not a 5 star rating from me?
1) the food both room service and breakfast is really not up to the quality it should be, in fact the breakfast room cannot cope with the amount of guests in the hotel. It’s a real bun fight unless you get there early. Food choices limited and not enough staff.
2) my biggest and most concerning gripe was the state of the huge terrace that 120 comes with ( and that you pay for) it was quite simply very very dirty.
The wooden flooring was absolutely filthy and so were all the tables and chairs, it looked like there had been a huge party previously to me taking over the room and the cleaners had not bothered to even attempt a suitable clear up.... a bit disappointing as this is a 5 star hotel!
However would I stay again.... yes most certainly because the hotel rooms and facilities are superb, I just wouldn’t pay for breakfast or pay extra for an outside terrace or bother with room service, I would probably then give it 5 stars myself
I stayed at the Hotel Molitor during a work event and was happy with it. The hotel is pretty new and it has a very modern design.
It has a very generous swimming pool in the middle and you can see how attractive it can be on hot days.
The bedrooms are ok - a bit too small for my taste, but comfortable nonetheless.
