Reviewed 23 July 2014

We can most certainly recommend the Westminster. A very friendely staff, headed by a champion concierge, take care of your needs. The room we had (a junior suite on the 2nd floor) was large, comfortable, had all the modern amenities, including a perfect airco. It was very quiet, looking out on the patio. Very good bed. Perfect cleanliness.
The bar (Duke's) is very cosy, not big, and directed by an (almost institutional) excellent bartender Gerard. We tested his knowledge of the Great Classics : no failures! Small quality meals are available at this bar, where pleasant piano music takes you back to whatever period in your souvenirs you'll love to go back to.
We'll be back.

Room Tip: No noise when the rooms face the patio No experience when facing the Rue de le Paix

I first stayed here seven years ago with my wife a year before she died. We had the most pleasant of experiences because of the staff, location & overall quality of the room & accommodations. Accordingly, when I planned a return trip to Paris with a new friend I chose to rebook here & was even more pleased with the return sojourn. I found the staff extremely friendly & helpful in both finding dining places & arranging for a side trip to Giverny. The room was comfortable & attended well. The daily petit dejeuner proved a most enjoyable way to start our day. We dined once at the restaurant & had a dessert another night at the bar. Both experiences more than satisfied our expectations. The location of the hotel near the corner of Rue de la Paix & Rue Daunou is ideal for walking to any major tourist location if the weather, your shoes & energy permit. By the way for more information about this little known jewel google Daunou & oldest hotels in Paris.

You could miss the entrance to the Hotel Westminster at 13 rue du la Paix if your eyes are drawn to the jewelry stores that flank it right, left and across the street includingHarry Winston, Cartier, Boucheron.

Think of the Westminster as a jewel of a hotel. Seemingly small, with an intimate lobby, the hotel rambles far back into the interior of the block with a lovely variety of rooms and decor.

An elegant restaurant serves classic French food in a formal atmosphere. Less formal and equally as inviting in the piano bar which serves lighter fare; it's as comfortable for a single lady to sip champagne, a couple to play backgammon, and, a family to feed children one of the best hamburgers in Paris.

The staff works hard to make one's stay a pleasure. What's more for the speculator location - steps from the Place Vendome and Opera Garnier - it's far more reasonable than many other hotels. It's old world, understated elegance; so if you're looking for hip this is not your place.

We spent 10 days in Paris there ... which is not our style as we like different hotel experiences. And, yes, we would return in an instant.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are quieter. The atmosphere is discreet opulence. The lifts are small but work...

This is a very good hotel in a superb location in Paris located between the Opera and the Tuileries. It serves as a meeting point for upscale canal trips and on those occasions the lobby can be crowded. But the rooms are fine and the staff works hard to make you happy. An expensive hotel, as every hotel of its class is in Paris, but it will be a good choice

Room Tip: Inside courtyard view for quiet

After a 7 day Tauck Bridges Tour with my 16 grandaughter we arrived in Paris tired and Hungary.
On check in we were up graded to a 2 room suite overlooking the courtyard. Beautiful flowers and trees.. Heaven. After a drink in the Bar (classic) we were taken to our suite. So comfy. We ordered room service which arrived exactly 20 min. after our call. Delicious. we settled in to lush bed linens ,two Tv and watched a couple of movies. The next day we woke up refreshed and down to the plentiful buffet. Out the door to explore the Louvre. Check out was easy. no problems. I'd go back with my husband. Great location, excellent service sooooo Fraench.

After twenty one hours flying from Sydney we were very happy with our choice of hotels in Paris. On a great street in a great area (Opera) we were able to visit the attractions we had planned with ease. Apart from the claustrophobic size lift with an opening door - unheard of in Australia - our room was simply delightful complete with a marble fireplace.

The staff were attentive and efficient and overall we had a wonderful stay there.

At first I was weary of the small lift and the age of the hotel. It was quickly overcome by the excellent way it was maitained and by the excellent service. The location is outstanding. and Nicolas the concierge was extremely friendly and helpful. I was there 13 to 15 June 2014.
