Reviewed 27 February 2012

Wonderful furnishings and service and food but one night here costs the same as 5 nights in an historically maintained apartment in a quiet part of the Latin Quarter. Waking to the sounds of the bells of Notre Dame. View of Notre Dame and distant view of Sacre Courer. Close to the wonderful open air food market of Rue Moufftard. I marvel that anyone would stay in any hotel in Europe when there are more authentic options, an opportunity to enjoy the cultures first hand. And for less $. Go figure.

Room Tip: Forget a room with a view of the Tower Eiffel. Go for a quiter room.

Hotel Le Bristo... P, Hotel Manager at Le Bristol Paris, responded to this reviewResponded 3 October 2012

Dear guest,

We certainly appreciate your comments. It goes without saying that the stature of what we call in France ‘palace’ in fact connotes a certain level of luxury which unfortunately means significant expenses for the running of such establishments. Those of us who are in that sector of the hotel business have as an objective every day to at least measure up to the guest expectations, or better yet, exceed them. So yes, the category of palaces are much more expensive than the norm. With this level of palace product and service expected comes the expense of a relatively large staff, and a demand for up keeping of the product at a superior level.

We regret that your experience did not correspond to your needs. Once again we can appreciate the neighborhood charm you found by staying in an apartment, but would hope that the majority of your readers understand that one experience is not comparable with the other.

I remain at your disposal should you need any further information

Best regards,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager

For the foodies amongst us, you will be absolutely impressed with the fact that the concierge at Le Bristol secured us a table at one of the most difficult restaurants to obtain a reservation in Paris (because they don't HAVE A PHONE!). For this, they deserve all of the accolades that one can heap upon them. Superlative praise. 5 stars. The staff, from the doorman to the room service attendants are excellent. The concierge is one of the best in Paris.

Sadly, we actually had to leave Le Bristol after our first night because their pool was closed for the week, unbeknownst to us on booking, and their gym consisted of only a very small number of machines. They were really gracious and offered us upgrades and everything when we said we were moving to another hotel for a gym/pool, but for us it is a bit of a deal breaker if we can't exercise because we come to Paris to eat!

You should also know, this is one of those hotels with big keys dangling from a large hotel icon that one must return to the concierge as one leaves the hotel and pick up as one enters. This makes it very personal and service-oriented, but my husband hates it. He wants to be a little faceless. But there is a hotel cat!

The rooms were freshly renovated, although a little bland (In Paris) for my liking, but this could have been because we had a room that looked directly at a glass roof in a courtyard and builders renovating across the way. Although it was a suite.

BUT they secured us a table at Chateaubriand and thus they get five stars. It is after all why we go to Paris.

Stayed with the family and found myself totally underwhelmed. Characterless lobby, snooty reception, rooms ok but no wow factor. Good amenities for children such as bedding and in room dining.

Dear guest,

We were sorry to learn from your posting on Trip Advisor on February 19, 2012 that your visit with the family in April 2011 was disappointing.

We would hope that on a return visit you would not have that same impression by the attitude of our Front Desk staff. Over that past year and a half we have been pleased to reinforce the team with a number of naturally warm and genuine staff members.

As for the lobby, and your comment regarding the room product, we have undergone many renovations since your visit, and would be keen to show you what we mean.

Do not hesitate to contact me at the Hotel at any time.

Sincerely,

Didier Le Calvez
President and General Manager

Another wonderful lunch. We went a bit over the top here, and loved every minute of it.

Food, wine and service all excellent.

The dining room at Le Bristol housed in the Regency room in the winter months) ranks as one of my favourite dining rooms in the world.

An elegant splurge.
