Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Edouard 7 Paris
Un hotel maravilloso
Mi esposa y yo pasamos 5 noches en este hotel maravilloso. La ubicación es perfecta; la Opera Nacional de Paris queda a la izquierda, y el Louvre a la derecha. Habían dos estaciones de metro y suficientes tiendas, restaurantes y cafés justo a la vuelta, incluyendo el excelente Harry's Bar. Descubrimos que podíamos entrar a la mayoría de las atracciones, incluyendo la Torre Eifél y los Champs Elysées. El hotel en sí es muy cómodo. Nuestra suite tenía suficiente espacio, con aire acondicionado al completo, y tenía una vista hermosa de la Opera Nacional de Paris. El restaurante era encantador. Desayunamos allí cada mañana, y estuvimos muy impresionados con la variedad y la frescura de la comida. Sin embargo, lo más destacado para nosotros, y la razón principal por la que no solamente lo recomendaríamos sumamente pero definitivamente regresaríamos al Edouard VII, fue el personal excepcional. Todos fueron corteses, amables, y muy serviciales. Definitivamente están entre los mejores que hemos conocido. Gracias por hacer que nuestro primer viaje a Paris haya sido un viaje inolvidable.
Un hotel bonito
Nos hospedamos 4 noches en el hotel Edouard VII, y como era el cumpleaños de mi esposo, nos subieron de categoría a una suite junior, la cual fue muy bonita, amplia y cómoda. El baño tenía una bañera y una ducha separada. La suite también tenía aire acondicionado en la habitación y en la sala, el cual necesitábamos ya que hacía mucho calor en Paris. Teníamos albornoces y zapatillas, y cambiaban las sábanas cada noche. Éste no es un hotel grande. Tiene un vestíbulo pequeño con un bar y un restaurante a la entrada. No comimos en este hotel, ya que el restaurante estaba cerrado el sábado y el domingo por la noche, pero si tomamos unas copas en el bar por las noches antes de salir, y el personal fue muy hablador y amable. Hablaban buen inglés, lo cual me avergonzó. Los diferentes conserjes también fueron serviciales. Desayunamos en un pequeño café subiendo la calle, ya que usualmente no comemos mucho, sólo cereal y té. ¡Y pensamos que 22 euros para el desayuno del hotel era un poco demasiado para sólo eso! Eso sí, se llenaba todas las mañanas. En general, disfrutamos de nuestra estancia en el hotel. Queda bastante central a muchos de los lugares turísticos. El Louvre quedaba bajando la calle, y la casa Opera de Paris quedaba en frente. Paris es maravilloso, y nos hubiera agradado quedarnos unas noches más. Hay tanto que hacer y ver. Afortunadamente el metro es tan eficiente y fácil, y hay uno prácticamente en cada esquina. No hubiéramos podido ver casi nada sin él.
My wife and I spent 5 nights in this wonderful hotel. The location is perfect, the Opera National de Paris to the left and the Louvre to the right. With two metro stations and plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes right on the doorstep (including the excellent Harry's Bar). We found that we could walk to most attractions, including the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysees. The hotel itself is very comfortable. Our suite had plenty of space, fully air conditioned and had a wonderful view of the Opera National de Paris. The restaurant was lovely. We breakfasted there each morning and were very impressed with both the variety and freshness of the fare. However, the highlight for us, and the foremost reason we would not only highly recommend but will definitely return to the Edouard VII were the exceptional staff. Everyone was courteous, friendly and very helpful. Definitely among the best that we have ever met. Thank you for making our first visit to Paris unforgettable.
We stayed here for four nights in a recent trip around France, Italy and Switzerland. This was a great hotel:
* The reception and concierge staff were continually helpful and polite throughout our stay. Even when we both got sick, and required a doctor on two consecutive days, nothing was too much trouble. The concierge organised the doctor for us very efficiently.
* The ambience in the hotel is very pleasant. It's not a huge hotel, which is nice because it has a more personal feel.
* The breakfast room and breakfast food were great. Breakfast room staff were helpful and hospitable. Breakfast was a buffet of hot and cold foods, and the food was lovely.
* The location of the hotel is excellent - very close to the Opera, as well as to a small supermarket (Monoprix) and of course to the metro (Pyramides).
* The bedroom was very comfortable and clean. The air conditioning was much appreciated as it was quite warm in Paris, being summer. The bathroom was clean and everything we needed was provided.
We intend to return to Paris and it will be this hotel where we will stay. We definitely recommend staying here.
We stayed 4 nights at Edouard VII hotel and as it was my husband's birthday we had upgraded to a junior suite which was very nice - spacious and comfortable. The bathroom had a bath and a separate shower and then there was a separate toilet. The suite also had air conditioning both in the bedroom and lounge area which we needed as it was very hot in Paris. We had bath robes and slippers and the bed linen was changed every night. This is not a big hotel, it has a small reception area with a bar and restaurant leading off. We did not eat in the hotel as the restaurant was closed on Saturday and Sunday night but we did have a drink in the bar in the evenings before going out and we found the staff there to be very chatty and friendly, and they spoke good English which made me ashamed. The various concierge were also helpful. We ate breakfast in a little cafe up the road as we don't eat much usually, only cereal and tea and we thought 22 euros for the hotel breakfast was a bit much for just that! It was full every morning though! All in all we enjoyed our stay at the hotel, its quite central to a lot of sights, the Louvre was just down the road and the Paris Opera house on its doorstep. Paris is just wonderful and we could have done with a few more nights - so much to do and see. Lucky the metro is so efficient and easy and on practically every corner - we wouldn't have seen hardly anything without it.
Good but could be better
I would really like to give the Edourd VII a higher score but in all honesty I can't. We stayed here for 8 days as part of a tour group. The room was small by North American standards but recently renovated and pleasantly furnished. The bathroom was a "one person at a time" size which proved workable if not optimal. Unfortunately the hotel did not have a non-smoking room available when we arrived (even though the tour had been booked months in advance) which necessitated spending two of the eight nights in an unrenovated smoking room much to our dismay. The service in the hotel was a puzzle. The concierge twice sent us in the wrong direction in search of a restaurant. The hotel restaurant never seemed to be open. Staff in the bar were hard to find. The breakfast buffet was adequate but not exceptional in any respect. And there was no doorman to help with luggage. All these flaws might be excusable in a two star hotel but aren't in a hotel with a four star rating and prices to match.
What a wonderful start to our honeymoon! The Edouard VII is perfectly located in the heart of Paris with access to all forms of transport (subway, tourist buses, etc) and within walking distance of the Louvre. The bedroom is spacious and tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. I am an extremely light sleeper and the room was so dark that we over-slept if we did not set the alarm and although we were on one of the area's main streets we were unable to hear any noise, either from the street or from adjoining rooms. The bathroom is spectacular - a little small but marble and kept spotlessly clean and with a constant supply of lovely shampoos and soaps and the like. I cannot comment on the food as we did not eat in. We were on the third floor, which I am led to believe has the more traditional décor. The fourth is a little more modern (and not as nice).
The staff were more than fabulous. Particularly Eric, who assisted us in locating our passports and travel documents that we had left at the airport(!) and Martin, who provided us with a constant stream of information about where to go, how to get there and even how to dress! Staff are very polite, helpful, friendly and discreet. Nothing was too much trouble.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Paris. Absolutely lovely!
Great value Great staff
My husband and I stayed here for four nights recently and found this an excellent small hotel. We normally stay in large venerable establishments, but in Paris this can cost well over $700/night. This crisp hotel is a bargain for this city. The staff is extremley cooperative and pleasant. The location is perfect for most tourist activities, within blocks of the Louvre and the upscale shopping district. The common areas in the hotel have been recently refurbished, making a very nice first impression. The fabrics in the guest rooms that I saw were a bit dated (late 80s style) but not at all shabby (still crisp enough) and the large bathrooms more than made up for it. This hotel presented an excellent value, and we would definitely stay here again.
Perfect position for perfect Paris!
My husband and I with our 2 yr old son stayed here for 5 nights 1Nov-6th Nov. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially because we speak little french. All staff are happy to speak English. Breakfast was fantastic and rooms are well appointed and very clean. The bar and restaurant were also great. This is a nice boutique hotel so you don't feel like a number as in the big hotels. Fabulous position as walking distance to all main attractions, great shops and train station. I will definately stay here again!

Ohmicod, the catacombs were AWESOME! The story behind how the bones got there is interesting, seeing all the bones arrayed was really something. Of course, you're not allowed to touch them. I was trying to cop a feel with my elbow, but it just wasn't the same. Bob and Steve ...
... The ice-cream screamed to be eaten so Jane indulged in two boules (scoops) of coffee and one of vanilla whilst Brad had vanilla, coffee and the yummy poire (pear) sorbet. It was a filling and delicious lunch made even better by receiving a 30% discount by making the booking through La Forchette. After our Saturday meal we wrote a review for the web-site and we will do another ASAP. Looking at the site, ours was the only review in English!

... numerous these public places are you it is unlikely you can police all of them at all times. And even if an incident broke out and these gentlemen were present and had to raise their weapons - its unwise to have machine guns going off in public places like Montparnasse Station or the base of the Eiffel Tower, all you’d end up with is a bunch of dead tourists and cityoens. Seriously French Security People, what are you accomplishing? Its creepy, ...
... nearly missed the landing because they were asleep and could not wake up! We even had Rachel at the window seat.
As we stepped off the plane into the tunnel, Isabel gave Paris a welcome that only she can do, and vomited in the tunnel. We were only 3 steps off the plane. Look out Paris, Isabel has arrived.
The taxi ride into Paris was horrendous. If you think Sydney has peak hour traffic, it has nothing on Paris. And they are ...
... weather which was wonderful for the night we had previously. We got the Louvre and thought we were in luck with having no line to wait on, but we were very wrong. The line was wrapped around two buildings, adding up to waiting in line for 2 hours approximately. So we decided that we didn't want to wait that long and could put our time to something else. We then walked to find the lock bridge and Notre Dame. We did the lock bridge first because it was starting to get nice out ...
