TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Relais Bosquet Paris
We have stayed at the Hotel Relais Bosquet Paris the past two days and will be checking out tomorrow morning, much to our dismay. We wish we could stay here longer.
The service and amenities provided by the staff here are outstanding. While I suspect each room is different, we were very happy with our room, our view, and all extras provided by the staff here. We arrived quite a few hours before normal check in, and were expecting to just ask for them to hold our luggage for us when, to our surprise, we were able to get into our room right away.
We had a partial view of the Eiffel Tower - an added bonus. The room had everything needed and was very comfortable. We loved having windows that opened to get fresh air and also hear the sounds of the streets. We also loved the rolling shutters that provided light blocking, but also some ventilation when we wanted privacy but didn't want to have to close up completely.
The staff went the extra mile at every turn and were more friendly than anywhere else we've stayed all over the world.
And, of course, the location is about the best you could ask for. Great restaurants nearby, walking to Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides, Napoleon's Tomb, and the Rodin Museum are all well worth being in this neighborhood.
We will definitely come back to Hotel Relais Bosquet the next time we're in Paris and we hope that is sooner rather than later.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Relais Bosquet Paris
Charming Hotel, Excellent Location!
My husband and I stayed at the Relais Bosquet for 3 nights in March of this year. We absolutely loved our room with a view of the top of the Eiffel Tower! The hotel is located in an excellent part of town, within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and other Paris sites. There is an excellent bread/pastry shop right outside the hotel where we enjoyed pain au chocolate pastries each morning for breakfast...YUM! The only negative about the hotel was the protests that occurred daily during out stay right outside the hotel...they just kind of left you with an uneasy feeling. That said, I would still recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a unique charming hotel in Paris.
Warm and welcoming
My daughter and I just returned from our stay at the Hotel Relais Bosquet and I have to agree with all the excellent reviews. Gerard, the English-speaking owner, couldn't do enough for us: reservations at restaurants, calling taxis, giving us the weather forecast, etc. He was terrific.
The rooms are nicely sized and are very quiet. Interestingly, the toilet was in a separate room than the sinks and shower, and this helped avoid tense moments!
The continental breakfast was (as always in France) a delightful selection of breads, along with OJ, a tangerine and coffee. My daughter also added the excellent cheese selection to her meal.
Make sure you visit the wonderful market just around the corner on the rue Cler.
One warning, though: don't use the Yellow Van service to get to and from the airport: they were late both times for us. Try one of the other van companies or the RER.
We will definitely stay here again.
Impressed with Hotel's Quick Response to E-mail!
We are planning our first trip to Paris. We sent an e-mail late last night inquiring about this hotel, asking specific questions. When we woke up early this morning, we had already received a response, answering all of our questions. Needless to say we are very impressed with the staff of this hotel, and are looking forward to staying with them!!
My husband & I stayed here for 4 days in September 2003 and were tremendously happy with the hotel. We were debating between 2 hotels and after reading these reviews, decided on Relais Bosquet and were very happy we did.
We found the rooms to be spacious for European standards and most importantly, CLEAN!! Of course, it is not the Ritz but neither are the prices. It is very quaint and well kept.
We spent the first part of our European trip biking through Italy & Switzerland and found this a great end to our adventure. As others have commented, the location is in a great trendy area of the city, near 2 metro stops. Very residential like. There is a restaurant at the end of this block (where the fruit/flower market starts) that has a green awning that was excellent. You are in close quarters to eat but that is European dining!
The front desk staff was extremely helpful. We wanted to take a day trip to Normandy and really were only able to do it on a Sunday. Every travel agent contact here in the US (and some in France as well) told us no trips went to Normandy on Sundays. The hotel immediately told us of a private van trip (8people total) and we signed up for it and were picked up right at the hotel. Some friends took a bus trip and didn't have as nearly of a good trip and had to take the metro to catch the bus, etc.
I am a picky traveler and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Can't go wrong.
Loved Relais Bosquet
TERIFFIC! Just spent seven days at the Relais Bosquet. I can't say enough about this fine hotel. LARGE rooms @(higher rate) 165 euros, quiet,clean&fine staff. Room #12 was just great. Location is outstanding with plenty of places for breakfast,lunch&dinner. Metro right around the corner. Nice residential location with FRIENDLY people everywhere.
This place is great. The location is outstanding, on a quiet street off the fun market street Rue Cler. It's about midway between the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides. The staff were really nice and helpful, and our room was so comfortable. The air conditioning is good and powerful. The bathroom and bed are great and the automatic dark blinds made the room so dark you could sleep all day. Of course, that would a shame in a city like this.
Great Neighbourood Hotel
We stayed here from May 17th - 24th largely based on our internet research and reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. The rue Cler neighbourood is great place to base your Paris visit from and the Metro is closeby. Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful despite our poor French! (they speak fluent English). We highly recommend a picnic lunch (from rue Cler shops) at the park by the Eiffel Tower which is a short walk from the hotel.
Very Nice for the Price
My wife, 10 month old daughter, and I extended our stay in Paris at this hotel after staying on business at a four star hotel. We loved the quaintness and comfort of this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, and its proxomity to the Rue Cler is great. We look forward to staying here again this year.
Very nice little hotel. Helpful staff. In an excellent neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants and shops. Within easy walking distance of the Eiffel Tower & Napoleon's tomb. Around the corner from the tube.We would definitely stay there again!
Very french and quite perfect
We stayed at the Relais Bosquet from Feb 16th through the 19th 2003. We really researched most of the hotels in Paris using the trip advisor website quite often. Out of 40 hotels that we studied, this is the one that we chose. We felt very welcome and the staff even spoke some english which was quite comforting. Our room was quite comfortable, we were on the 6th floor and had a view of the Eiffel Tower. Quite spectacular. Wow! This hotel is well situated to everything on the Left Bank and close to a wonderful restaurant called La Serre. We would stay here again and thought the accomdations were lovely and well decorated. Have breakfast at the hotel at least once. They have some lovely offerings. Enjoy!

10:21AM: Currently half way between Edinburgh and London. We decided to make this part of the journey via train rather than fly so we may take in some of the English and French countryside. Train travel in Europe is most certainly not train travel in the U.S. The trains are new, clean, comfortable and quiet. This is "not" Amtrak. We are due to …

... The waiter obviously thought we were brainless American women because he tried to short us 10 euros when I paid cash. But since I still know how to calculate numbers, I tracked him down and first he just offered me 5 euros and then I demanded 10 euros and he apologized and gave me my cash. Sneaky French men should not pick on smart American women. We then headed to the Galeries Lafayette, which is THE shopping mall in Paris. It reminded me of ...

As it was starting to get late we decided to head over to he Eiffel Tower to see it by night. Even at late ...
... t a clue. Fortunately, the men didn't follow, and I wandered into a cafe at the end of the street hoping for some help but the proprietor spoke no English. I wandered back to the apartment but it was still locked tighter than the proverbial drum. There was nothing I could do but stand and wait with my case on the footpath, in the dark, watching people head off to work.
Ten minutes later, a man came out of the apartment clutching the hand of a young child. ...
