Historical Traveler Reviews Regina Hotel Paris
Old world charm and style
We stayed at the Regina in June and loved every second of our visit.
Our room was incredible, with huge french windows that overlooked the tuileries and the Eiffel Tower beyond. The room itself was huge and evocative of 'old paris'. The bathroom was big too which is a dream in Paris. The location is fantastic. Seconds from the louvre and the tuileries, a skip away from hot chocolate at Angeliques and a pleasant stroll to the Place Vendome and Blvde Hausseman. Faubourg St Honore is only moments away as well!The Regina is an older style European hotel, it has been used in many films including la femme Nikita. Please stay there if you can, you won't regret ii.
This hote was amazing. Great location, wonderful staff and great breakfast. Definetely recommended.
I stayed at the Regine twice and both times were as good as each other.
Wonderful rooms, large, great breakfast and a wonderful location.
Leaving the Regina was like leaving a part of me in PAris.
I stayed a week at the Regina. It was amazing. Close to everything. I was on the top floor and across my balcony was the most incredible view of Paris. The room was comfortable, service wonderful, and even though I dont speak french I was thankful the employees at the front desk did. They were very helpful and kind to me. I will be back someday!
Inadequate air conditioning
Airconditioning was not adequate - we just returned from a trip with the last 5 nights in Paris. Although I informed the front desk of the problem and a technican came, the room was not comfortable. We were ont he top floor - perhaps they should not have the top floor open in the summer if this is a problem. The room itself was beautiful, clean. The bathroom was large, clean, and full of light. Maid service and service staff were highly responsive. However, due to the air conditioning problem, lack of, I would not stay at this hotel again.
Our special place
This hotel will always have a special place in our hearts. Besides being a charming Beaux Arts beauty, it is the place that my wife and I got engaged. I mention this because it highlights another charm of this little gem -- the staff. They were so helpful with all my plotting and planning and helped make the surprise come off without a hitch. We will visit the Regina again and again over the many years of our marriage!
This Hotel is fantastic. The rooms are great, the people are very friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful and best of all, it's located in the best district in Paris. For first timers you really want to your Hotel to be located in this district. The Louvre is right across the street. The Eiffel Tower is within walking distance. There is also a fantastic bus-tour company 20 steps from the Hotel (this will be very important to you because after any tours that you book you'll be dropped off right at the Hotel). For those of you who heed this advice, say hello to Stefan (the breakfast host at the Hotel restraunt) from Michael and Kitty.
Not all that - but not bad
So perhaps my feelings about the Regina were biased by the fab hotel we had just stayed at in Venice, also on frequent guest stay miles. The room at the Danieli in Venice was top of the line. In Paris, at the Regina, our "free" (points) room was on the top floor, so it had that sort of horrible low ceiling you get in Parisian top floor rooms. It was laid out oddly, and was a bit claustrophobic. It was also impossible to get it not too hot or not too cold - the heater was sporadically scalding and/or freezing! The hot water into the bath tub, in a rather nicely petite, white tiled forties-feeling bathroom, was the hottest hot water we had in all Europe. So that was good. But as far as service, well, it was not very good. Forget getting turndown! It was a joy to get towels without calling. The bar was great service and decent priced for cocktails. The breakfast (continental included) was a good deal, and it was nice to have table service versus horrible buffet!! But still, all in all, I was not thrilled.
A Parisian Treasure
We had a short stay during our honeymoon trip and were charmed by the Regina Hotel. Full of character, and wonderful location, we found outstanding service.
We were first placed in a honeymoon suite which was lovely having a bathroom with a painted mural, but no view except rafters. We requested a view of the city, and they were surprised we preferred one of their smallest rooms but with a view we enjoyed day and night!
The room was indeed small, but cozy with luxurious furnishings including an antiquie, built-in wardrobe, marble built-in desk, and rich tapestries and bedspreads. The bathroom was quite large and modern, even by U.S. standards. And the view of the Eiffel Tower, gardens and city skyline was breathtaking.
We loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat. Excellent choice for a Parisian adventure.
Last fall, we stayed at The Regina Hotel and absolutely LOVED it!! The location is perfect, right across the street from the Louve & Tuilleries. Fantastic shopping on all surrounding streets. But the best part was our room. It was absolutely incredible. It was a 6 room suite with 20' high ceilings a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower, excellent restaurant (and room service), service (twice daily maid service) Terry bath robes, great tour booking from the main desk, elegant lounge/bar. It truely was a huge factor in our loving Paris. We can't wait to go back!! Do yourselves a favor and check out this place. Our room rate was $245/night.

... 2F - there are enough Terminal 2s to take up most letters in the alphabet. We had a major delay in getting off the aircraft while they messed around trying to get a set of stairs with a roof. The crew very thoughtfully didn't want us to get drowned. And we didn't - well that was until we had to walk 20 metres from the bottom of the stairs with the roof to a bus with no covered walkway! Of course we got drowned. From the airport we boarded a coach for the 2.5 hour trip ...
... snakes. It was unbelievable! We all had a ball and it was a great way to end the tour with our little Contiki family. The show went for about 2 hours and then we went to the pub next door to finish off the tour with a few or more drinks. We actually made it back to the hotel fairly early as we have a massive driving day today back to London. I am currently on the bus and we are down by about half of our group as they were either staying back in Paris or flying out to go home or ...
... glass windows, are my favorite. This is sad, but I did not get the religious feel/experience inside that I was expecting. It was so packed and busy, that it was difficult to reach a spiritual moment. Just like everyone else, I was not going to leave Paris without seeing the Cathedral, but it was kind of sad to see how publicized it has become. We walked back to our hotel from here, to take a very small break before going to the Louvre. Time was not on our side at this ...
... to Giverney. On boarding the bus Marg could not find her phone, which led to a stressful few minutes but thankfully it was not lost and we were soon under-way for the hour trip to Vernon. Autumn in Monet's garden was very different from my last visit. The tulips were replaced with a mass of perennials including large dahlias and bright nasturtiums spilling across the paths. The water garden was busy with tourists but ...
... or two... We made it to Paris which was via some questionable neighborhoods, one of which we are staying in. Let's say when the driver refuses to unload the next suitcase until the one in his hand has been collected by you means things are sketchy. So naturally I'm a wreck, and clutching to my pacsafe bag and camera with white knuckled fingers. For dinner everyone went out to a restaurant where we had a range of French food (including snails), and got some ...
