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.

... by then but time enough for a wander around the neighbourhood to buy essentials & in doing so butcher a beautiful language. Impressed to see a bunch of kids who had taken over a street for a game of football (photo 3) - didn't see any of this in England. And say what you want about the French but they are so amazingly chic. Even the beggars look ...
... happy! After a late night some went out but I crashed and burned after 8 hours walking Paris in the rain. We were up early the next day for the 9 1/2 hour drive to Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland! All in all Paris didn't live up to my expectations, the shopping was non existent unless you had a lot of money, it was very slummy out of the city and SO many souvenior stores, very much a tourist city, not as glamourous as I expected. As for ...
... a French teacher from Melbourne teaching English in Paris. The Americans catch us up in the park at the base of the tower while Jess starts telling us some interesting facts. And now for your Eiffel Tower history lesson. Mr Gerhard Eiffel paid two of his staff to come up with a design for the 1889 world trade fair & the tower won. It took two years to build & is made up of 18,000 pieces manufactured & put together on sight like ikea furniture. Each rivet was hammered ...
... are amazing. I don't think the kids are old enough to appreciate it but they can certainly soak up the culture.
Unfortunately for Draz, the Cartier shop were closed early by the time we got there! To much ambling in other shops before we made it.
On the way back the Kids played in the Tuileries children's park, it is such a beautiful place.
Home to bed after a long day....
... the building are stairs that lead to the crypt that is full of Napoleon's war generals, French philosophers Voltaire & Rousseau and even Marie Curie. However, the crypt is not entirely full yet as we saw many open spaces that had no grave in it yet.
The Pantheon is just up from the Jardin Luxembourg - so we got a chance to sit amongst the yellow & red flowers & fountains and put our feet up for a while.
