Historical Traveler Reviews Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris
Nice hotel, but wouldn't stay again
Reading the other reviews, I assume there are some rooms that have been updated and others that haven't. The hotel lobby is elegant and the staff was very friendly. The room seemed small and a little musty, the mattress old and flat, overall the room was not the class you expect from Mandarin Oriental. They should all stay at a Four Seasons for a few days and take lots of notes. The bathrooms, however, were very nicely done.
It was on a nice street and there were no glaring deficiencies....but the hotel didn't leave me with that feeling that I couldn't wait to stay there again. Maybe, when Mandarin Oriental company starts to associate its name more prominently with the hotel's name, it will start to improve.
Bravo Jacques Garcia!
Unbelievable! We have stayed here once before, but after the Mandarin Oriental infused this property with capital for renovation, a la Jacques Garcia, this property has become the best hotel in Paris hands down. Wow! Staying anywhere else in Paris is futile at this point, especially if you are looking for true 5-Star Parisian elegance.
LUXURY WITH GREAT SERVICE
Booked on the internet and got a great rate (over 1/3 off & included spa pass). Arrived and we were upgraded, it seems that they do this when there is the availability, very nice! This hotel is total luxury and the service is worthy of the best praise. Recently renovated and just perfect. The pool is awsome and the steam room is great. The location is ideal and could reach the main sites with ease. Breakfast buffet was really, really good and it cost about 85 Euros for 2 which is what you would expect to pay at a 5 star venue. Even without the discounted room tarriff, because of the great experience, we would stay again and recommend to anyone.
Pampered Luxury Steps from the Arc de Triomphe
We bought a package on a luxury auction site to spend several nights at the Royal Monceau on our honeymoon and were not at all disappointed. Although one of the restaurants was closed due to construction, our visit was not spoiled in the least. The location is just steps away from the Arc and the Champs Elysees, yet far enough away to be on a nice quiet street. Room service was amongst the best food we'd had in any restaurant, much less room service. The service was attentive and quick, and we had no problems communicating - the staff was patient with our poor french and spoke English quite well. We will return!
A step above the George V
Was a luxurious experience, that I will try and experience again and again. The staff is hospitable and the rooms elegantly appointed. Maybe a pit stop on my honneymoon. Thank you Royal Monceau. I wish all hotel experiences end up like that.
I booked this hotel through A/E VIP program. Upon my arivial I was upgraded to deluxe room. Very large with a garden view. The bathroom was great Jaccuzi tub and shower. One thing that was strange was the toilet was not in the bathroom but in a small room by the living room/ bedroom.
They were doing contruction but it was no problem They are close to the Arch but off on a quite street.
I saw the regular rooms, they are standard europe rooms small but nice. Food is good but pricey, there are lots of resturant very close for less. I plan on going back to Paris next year and most likely will stay there again
A very nice hotel
When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a warm welcome. Check in was efficent, and the Front Desk Agent gave us a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room (we reserved a superior) . When we arrived in our room we were very dissapointed, the room was very small and plain. The bed was slightly stiff and the decor was very plain. The bathroom was a different story. It was very luxurious and exceeded my expectations. The dining room was very elegant and the service was top notch. The bar was quite inviting and Daniel the bartender took very good care of us. Ask for him when you visit the hotel. The spa was very nice, but the pool was a little on the small side. When I made the reservations and checked in I thought that I had booked us on a package. I called and spoke to the head front desk agent and I realized that I had misunderstood him and he offered to send us bottle of champagne for the confusion. I thought it was a nice touch but it never came. The concierge was always very helpful.
Wonderful, Will Stay again!!
What a great experience. The hotel is lovely, the location is ideal (right off the Champs Elysee) The room was spotless and a good size (especially for Paris). And most especially the service was exceptional. The entire staff is top notch and the Concierge (we delt mostly with Herve) was terrific. He made suggestions of excellent restraunts - made all the reservations - helped with directions and just had an overall pleasant personality. Also English is no problem at this
hotel. Looking forward to our next stay at The Hotel Royal Monceau
Would not Stay Again
On our visit to Paris we decided to try the Royal Monceau. We found the room very clean, and a nice size by Paris standards. We found the service very snobby. We arrived on a red-eye at 8am so by 7pm that night we were ready for a quick dinner and bed. When we came downstairs we found their restaurant didn't open until 8pm. When we asked the concierge where he recommended we go since we really couldn't wait until 8pm to start dinner he refused to recommend ANY place to eat saying that there were no restaurants around that he could really say were good. The next morning at breakfast we ordered a la carte, joking with the waiter that we really were not that big of eaters to do the buffet. He asked if we wanted OJ and toast with breakfast, which we both said yes. When the bill came there were 2 charges for $27 each for the buffet on top of our a la cart charges. When I asked why we were charged for the buffet he replied "the orange juice and toast are considered buffet items". Even after we said we didn't want the buffet! Not nice!
Enjoyed our stay
We were impressed with the service and attitude of the hotel staff. Our room was very spacious and well appointed. A great bathroom with spa tub and shower. The heath club was above par. Breakfast was included at their restaurant overlooking a beautiful garden. There are two metro stops within five minutes of the hotel. We never used a cab our whole stay!

... the hotel at 9 because I thought we had a tour of Montmartre... we did... today. So with that we set off back to the Champs Elysees to get a camera bag (it's supposed to rain every day we're here). We then strolled the streets around our hotel, stopping in shops, walking down the river, all the way to Gallerie Lafayette. This is a huge mall/department store that has been completely over run ...

Geez what an expensive place this is, 3 beers nearly $50 Australian, oh well it's holidays you don't care about the cost (till you get home hehe)

Also, the flooring on our level,, it felt like they just had a bunch of 2x4's laid down for the floor and stretched carpet over it, it was easy to find "soft spots" that I likely could have jumped through. The room was very small but very pricey. I would like to go back to this hotel in 2 years and see how it is with all of the renovations because like ...
