    Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meurice Paris

    A long way to go!


    I spent a week-end at the Meurice last year and was very disappointed. Confused welcome by amateurish staff. Poor service in the restaurants: staff mostly ignorant about the menu and like students on a summer job. Food good but not exceptional (and expensive). Breakfast slow, not great and again without 5-star service. Unpleasant atmosphere because of shady types hanging around with mobiles and bodyguards. Nice spa but virtually nobody to greet or help you. The hotel's decor is imposing, but the louche atmosphere and poor service spoiled the experience. The impression you get is that they have refurbished the hotel and are now trying to cut costs. Definitely not in the league of Bristol, George V and Ritz.

    I appreciate you took time to give your feeling about our property but am really sorry you do not get a very good memory of your stay with us.

    I really regret your comments came to us via Tripadvisor Internet site one year after your experience with us.

    We reply to all our clients who make a comment to us within 24 hours and take the benefit of this to do the necessary in case of poor comments.

    I have to say that being now classified at the 14th place in Andrew Harper Report (on the 20th best worldwide hotels), is the result of a hard and daily work to get this position.

    I do hope you will give us a next chance to show you that the HOTEL MEURICE is "so Palace".

    Do not hesitate to contact me personally , I will be pleased to meet you.

    Sincerely yours

    Wonderful, but not relaxed


    Maybe is too much to ask for a 5-star luxury together with a relaxing ambiance, especially for an hotel that has more than a century of history and, maybe, especially for Paris.

    Room was wonderful, and we got a complimentary (and not requested!) upgrade upon checking in.

    Been there two nights starting from February 7th 2004, the room was actually fabulous (though not too big), comparable to that of a royal palace and the bathroom was... well, as big and beautiful as the room (let's say, 30sqm + 30 sqm).

    The most beautiful and remarkable bathroom I've ever seen (though I usually travel 5-star and an average of 50nights/year).

    Breakfast was good, nothing more.

    Next time, will try the Ritz.

    Best Hotel I have ever stayed!!! Loved it!!!! Beautiful!!!!!


    We stayed at the Meurice hotel and we could not believe the atmosphere, charm, etc.., everything is beautiful, fresh flowers all around including in the bedroom. The rooms are beautiful, silk drapes, bathrooms of marble, elegant toiletries, what can I say, you won't regret if you check in at The Meurice, the breakfast was superb, and the restaurant is beautiful too. For us it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in, in every way, service from check in to check out, cleanliness, quiet, elegant, modern comforts in a Parisian charm!

    So romantic!


    My boyfriend at the time planned a surprise trip to Paris. We had been to Paris 2 years prior and stayed at a more modest hotel paid for by his company. We fell in love then, and it was so fitting we came back to Paris to get engaged. I was speechless as we entered Meurice Hotel. The location is fantastic! Upon checking into our room, we were promptly greeted by a bottle of Champagne and some lovely sweets compliments of the hotel manager. Their breakfast buffet was amazing - not to mention the decor. We spent some time in the spa as well. Marble everywhere, in our bathroom, i think it was floor to celing! Also including a huge soaking tub. We can't wait to return for our Five Year Anniversary following our wedding at the end of this month.

    Spectacular View and Service


    Stayed two nights at the Meurice at the end of a vacation. This would be considered a "top 5" hotel in any city in the world. The service was superior (with the recent building collapse at the Paris airport, the doorman was able to direct the taxi driver to the proper departing terminal for the return flight). Personal security was exceptional. This is obviously a place that is used to housing the powerful and wealthy. The main restaurant was terrific, if perhaps a tick below Alain Ducasse. The "coffee shop" is decorated in a way superior to 999 of 1000 fine restaurants. If you want to feel like a king or queen for a day, this is the place. Bring your royal checkbook!



    I stayed at the Meurice and I had arranged a pick up at the Air france gate. After some stays at the PLAZA or RITZ I can tell you:go to the MEURICE you will have a real FRENCH palace!My room was as elegant as could be, a large bathroom a wonderfullly comfortable bed with silk everywhere.It was quite possibly the most luxurious room I have ever stayed in. Peaceful, beautiful, large. Excellent service especially my housekeeper(Peggy) was great- I feeled me like at home...just that I was in Paris.As was the service at the concierge who called a club that was IMPOSSIBLE to get into and gave me a note and I waled to the front of the line and got in for FREE where it would have cost $30. YOU WILL NOT find the tennis shoe traveler here, it is a top drawer clientale, with guests who know and expect the BEST, I plant to return to Paris this summer and WILL DEFINITEY STAY AT THE MEURICE!

    I loved how the staff treated you like royalty


    The hotel was awesome. The staff was wonderful and so was the dining.

    The location of the hotel was great and the hotle could accomidate you with almost anything you requested. The location was also great for shopping, one of my favorite things to do. If you have not ever stayed there than I highyl recommend it. I do know fine things from living in the expensive city I live in with fine dining but I still felt like I was royalty. Thank you for my wonderful stay.

    Dilapidated Luxury


    We stayed here during our honeymoon. Overall, the hotel is beautiful and the staff very friendly, but I don't think we got our money's worth at $500 a night. The "king sized bed" was actually 2 twin mattresses pushed together with king sized sheets. The bed was very comfortable, but because of the crack in the middle, we each had to sleep on a separate side, with no cuddling. The turn down service came at 8:00 pm, and it was too late by then for us. The breakfast buffet that was included in the price of our room ended at 10:30, and they turned people away by 10:15. We had to rush to make it down there if we wanted the breakfast. The buffet could have also had more selection; perhaps, with an omelette chef, or something special that you would expect in such a luxury hotel? Our room was gorgeous, we had internet access in our room, we had a huge bathtub, and the hotel was very accomodating. It was also well located. I just exected more for the price. This hotel has an historic reputation, with a long line of distringuished guests. My fear is that this hotel bases its rates on this reputation of luxury, while not providing a comparable level of service.

    Exquisite and nice as well


    I stayed at the Meurice in June during the heat wave and couldn't believe how nice it was. I had booked a rock bottom priced room (for the Meurice) and thought I'd get a closet. As a lark I had requested a view of the Tuileries and Eiffel Tower. When I checked in they had indeed upgraded me to a room with a view of both the gardens and the tower!! The manager treated me to a free drink in the bar, which is lovely and cozy and intimate. And when it got simply too hot to walk around Paris, they arranged for a car and driver. I will never stay anywhere else in Paris. But look around for cheaper internet rates because the one I found was at least $100 less for the Meurice than anything I found anywhere else.

    Not worth what you pay...


    We have spent five nights in September 2002 at the Meurice Hotel. Despite its charming reception and ultra-luxurious furnishings this hotel does not worth the high rates it charges. The hotel was very noisy at nights and it was very difficult for us to sleep because of the excessive noise produced by other guests of which the majority was Arabs. Shoutings and fights were going on in the corridors and neighboring rooms until extreme late hours of the nigth which was very disturbing. Besides, room service and house keeping did not have a consistent service standard. Our turndown service was "forgotten" one day, and left incomplete another. Given the per night charge in excess of 600 euros, such kind of uncomforts are unacceptable. I recommend travelers to avoid this hotel as it does not at all worth the money you pay for.

    Morrison was buried (Pere Lachaise). It was HUGE and gorgeous! G loves cemeteries.... don't know if we should be worried or not....

    Then, it was off to Le Tour! Let me paint the picture before I lie and say it was all peachy and easy.... it is 85 degrees, no clouds, and we were jammed in so tightly a women's purse kept lifting up the hem of my shorts every time she moved. We stood for 3.25 ...

    Well, what a day we have had. Our feet are divinely rested, and no aches, pains or creaks emanate from the body. It's our heads that are spinning from Versailles - a monument to excess that takes your breath away...

    Once again, the day dawned overcast and rain threatened. Undaunted we wore our summer short sleeves to dare the sky to drizzle on us. We were collected in a minibus with six other travellers - one Aussie from Sydney and five Americans. All lovely. ...

    ... as the out. A little unfortunate that it is such a tourist attraction as many people were noisy and bustling about which took away from the atmosphere that would probably take your breath away inside. Either way it was an incredible experience to be inside and see this amazing building.

    After Notre Dame, we took off for the Louvre. We stopped by the love lock bridge on the way, because, why not? The expectations were not very high for going into ...

    ... the spring macaron which was the flower lily & I was not a fan of it at all - it tasted like soap.

    Dinner tonight was very relaxed at a restaurant we've been to before - Les Relais D'Entrecote. Its been voted one of the top 5 places in the city for steak frites & that is the only thing on the menu. Parisiennes are wiling to wait in long lines to eat here & its worth the wait. Our waitress asked what we wanted to drink & how we like our steak cooked. ...

    ... Not so much fun. By the time we got to the gardens we were very tired so stopped for a glass of wine in a cafe. We were surprised to find that a soft drink cost nearly the same as a glass of wine E4.50 for lemonade and E5.00 for Coke (Not that our kids drink coke). We had already noticed that soft drink costs a lot in cafes here. Meg was excited that we were near the Louvre and told me all she knew about Picasso and his blue period and a little about Van Gogh. Sadly, by the time ...
