Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lancaster Paris
A haven of peace and tranquility
When the rush and noise of Paris gets too much this is a great place to return to! On rue de Berri which runs between the Champs-Elysees and rue du Faubourg St. Honoré, so perfectly situated for sightseeing and shopping.
The staff must rate amongst the most helpful at any hotel I've ever stayed at. Rooms and food first rate
Will never stay anywhere else in Paris again
We just returned from five nights at the Lancaster, the last leg on our two-week honeymoon trip. What a great place. Location was perfect, on a small street just a few feet of the Champs-elysees. Staff was perfect, always helpful, always pleasant. The room was perfect, the bed was perhaps the most comfortable of any hotel bed I've ever slept in. There was a lovely small terrace on which to enjoy some quiet reading. I absolutely loved this hotel, and we agreed that we were never stay anywhere else in Paris again; we'll always return to the Lancaster. I don't think that we're alone. During our stay, we encountered an Oscar-winning actor who was staying there as well, who also seemed to very much be enjoying his stay there.
We just returned from 10 days in France and spent the last two nights at the Hotel Lancaster. We had booked a weekend special through the Leading Hotels website and were given the 8th floor Penthouse suite (Chambre 80) with breakfast included. The hotel is ideally situated on a small side street north of the Champs near the George V metro stop with virtually no noticable street noise. Everyone we encountered was extremely pleasant and polite and helpful. The room itself was enormous by Paris standards. The living room was well furnished with east and west views above the surrounding buildings and a large terrace that is accessible from both the living room and the bedroom that offers specatcular views of the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and Sacre Couer. The bedroom is very ornate with a comfortable bed and nice Frette sheets. The adjoining bathroom is large with very good shower pressure. There are no other rooms on the 8th floor, which insures great privacy. The restaurant is pricey, but tasty. I faxed the hotel in advance for restaurant reservations and they were in order upon my arrival. All in all, a very well run hotel in a very nice part of Paris.
Simply the Best
This is the best hotel I have stayed in. With only 60 rooms the hotel is very peaceful and personal. The rooms are very comfortable with large bathrooms and the bed is the most comfortable I have ever experienced. The staff are very attentive, polite and helpful, nothing is a problem to them. After a long day's sightseeing or shopping the courtyard bar is a joy to come back to for a cool, relaxing drink away from the madding crowds. The restaurant is run by a 3 michelin star chef and as such is very popular so make sure you book. I will return over and over again to the Lancaster as I love it so much and I'm sure that you will too.
Excellent hotel in great location
Recently we went to Paris for a photography wokshop with a small group of professionals. After reviewing all the overwhelming choices of amazing hotels in Paris, we decided on Hotel Lancaster from many recommendations. It is a superb hotel. Staff is unbelievably accomodating, they are always helpful with reservations, event suggestions, directions etc.. The location is in the middle of Champs Elysees but on a quiet street; my room had a wonderful window to the courtyard which I could hear a faint trickle of their fountain. The sheets/linens are elegant - Frette. Restaurant is impressive - creative combinations of gourmet food. The size of the hoptel is ideal - boutique feel but with french charm as opposed to a lot of soul -less trendy boutique places. The only minor minus is the internet connection which was challenging with a mac, but they are working on that problem and most likely will have it resolved shortly. All around, one of my favorite hotels, and I travel extensively.
A home away from home
I have been to Paris several times, however, this hotel experience gave me a home away from home. It's boutique size and great customer service made Paris a warm and welcoming place for English speakers from around the world. They make great restaurant recommendations and the hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. It has elegant décor and a great breakfast.
I just returned from 3 all-too-short days at the wonderful Lancaster. My room was a beautiful double for single occupancy on the courtyard with not a sound except for the pleasant splash of a water fountain. Room was beautifully decorated with Frette linens and lovely antiques. The bathroom had a large window onto the courtyard with a huge tub and separate stall shower.
The food was first rate and the men at the door and concierge desk could not have been friendlier.(When I left my cologne behind, I received not one, but two, calls and an offer to deliver it to my Left Bank hotel, where I had transferred to spend time with friends).
I can't wait to return to the Lancaster.
A great hotel!
My wife and I just returned from Paris where we stayed six nights at the Lancaster. This is a great hotel with the finest service. What a friendly staff! Our suite (upgrade with AMEX plan) facing the courtyard was so quiet we could open the windows at night. The excellent continental breakfast (served until 11:30!!) includes meats, cheeses, smoked salmon. My only complaint was the highly excessive cost (35 Euro/day) of the hotel's WI-FI connection.
Excellet ambience at The Lancaster
Recently returned from The Lancaster in Paris. This is a very fine small hotel in an excellent location one block from the Champs-Elysees (8th). We enjoyed the calm ambiance and the mixture of antiques and asian decor. The service is impecable and courteous. If you are looking for refined and elegant acommodations in Paris, this is the place! We can't wait to return.
Avoid the Suit's & stay with Bently owners etc.
Avoid the suit & tie types. If you have moved beyond that and possilby drive a Bentley and/or Ferrari this is your place and you like privacy. The staff is excellent and service is great. Enjoy the private patio every night with great service and attention without the gawking crowds and tourist types. Food is excellent.

... our next stop Notre Dame; such a beautiful cathedral and we enjoyed walking around inside. The last time we visited Paris the queue was ridiculous and it was 35 degrees so needless to say we didn't wait around. It was here we succumbed and had a takeaway crepe - mmmmm. David had apple, I had chocolate/nutella of course! Was so good.
Back on the bus and we marvelled at all the beautiful buildings, mind you I'm not sure what the majority of them even area. ...
... Arts - a small shopping area filled with local artisans. Mom picked up a couple of pieces of jewelry from one of the brands she loves from Paris - Cécile Jeanne. On the way home, we stopped at 3234 Cafe for a few glasses of wine. Such a cute little local watering hole. Mom made friends with the bartender, and got a gratis French lesson in return. As we walked back to the ...
Today we rose early to see the sunrise from the Basilique du Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart Basilica). We left the hotel at 7am, it was still dark and bloody freezing. We made our way to Montmatre and took the Funiculaire (cable car thing) to the top of the hill. There it was standing, the Sacre Coeur. We stood and looked out to the dark fog that covered the skyline of Paris. Due to it being freezing we waited a while and then went inside the ...
... Yeah a little bit of everything, but mostly fresh foods. This happens twice a week here, so you really don't even need a big grocery store. We browse on our way to our Metro station.
Today we are going on the tour bus that will take us around the different tourist spots in Paris. This is a good way to see the highlights and get orientated to the city. This is free with the Paris Pass mentioned above. So off we go on the tour bus. If you sit on the second level you ...
... their lyrics and album covers, photocopies of their original jottings included. Although I knew she would love it, it cost €32 and would have weighed a tonne, so we settled for a journal with drawings of influential writers on the front (appropriate for a journalist, we thought). We got it all gift wrapped and were on our way. We walked through the box markets for a while and I got a very cliche France bracelet for my collection. In the big courtyard we had ...
