“Favart was excellent, but not perfect”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

The hotel was very good, but by my standards, expensive. I knew that Paris was expensive, so I wasn't surprised, but did find the room small (for the money, and by Washington, DC area standards, perhaps not by Paris norms). Also, while the place was lovely, and the facilities were clean and modern, a small gripe was the shower. It had two means of water delivery, a European, hand-held shower nozzle and an overhead, large American style nozzle. Both worked well, but the shower stall door did not completely close, so that when using the overhead shower head delivery system, the bathroom floor got quite wet requiring use of a bath towel to mop up. We used the handheld to avoid this problem, but for this money would have expected the shower door to close. With a cafe and/or restaurant at virtually every street corner, this couple of comfort seeking Americans, did not find it necessary to be captive at the hotel for breakfast nor for other meals. On arrival, we were tired and ready for dinner--we made the mistake of taking the suggestion of the bellman about a nearby restaurant, and we should have known better. The restaurant, I believe the name of it was something on the order of Petite Riche , or something like that, was "substantially average", perhaps even mediocre--it was pricey, and that was expected, but not really very good--we had a good time, and in spite of rather ordinary offerings and the kind of sloppy service (not the waiter, but the kitchen--food obviously sat under a heater or was heated in the oven to keep it hot, too long, and the signs of overheating were not only visible, but palatable--sloppiness and inattention to timing of the food prep and delivery; not what I would hope for in a really good place). Dessert was excellent, and the wine we ordered at the waiter's suggestion, was good, and a good paring with our food. Paris was great, the hotel was very good, and very near a metro station (Richelieu-Dorot), not too far from the Paris Opera.

Room Tip: This was comparable to a very good American hotel room, but it was small. In room coffee machine of...

We stayed in this charming hotel for one night, before moving to an apartment in Paris. We didn't want to leave! The hotel was so comfortable with a cosy library and stylish breakfast room downstairs. Our room was lovely - overlooking a small square - with a very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom (great shower!). The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast (included in the price) was delicious. We would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to anyone looking for a hotel in Paris.

I was here a few weeks ago for three nights and two days. I thought the hotel was gorgeous, comfortable, and in a great location. The amenities were excellent. The staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful! Hakim and Gilles really made me feel at home. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Paris and plan to stay here the next time I'm in town.

For our 40th wedding anniversary, my husband and I took our 3 daughters to Europe. Our first stop was Paris where we had two rooms for 5 nights at La Maison Favart. It was perfect. I chose it because of the Parisian ambiance, and we were not disappointed. It is on a quiet street, yet very convenient. The staff was always knowledgeable and congenital with a good sense of wit! We were happy with all of their recommendations. After hours of sight seeing and dinner, we relaxed in the amazing pool of colorful and changing lights prior to retiring to our beautifully decorated rooms. We chose the petit fare breakfast of fruits and fresh pastries that was more than adequate.

Cute small room. Quiet, bed is good. No bathtub but nice shower and all is brand new. We chose the classic double room at €350 euros with no cancellation, no breakfast included ... I was expecting at least a complimentary bottle of water but no we had to pay €4 for it.

The staff is not very friendly. Just polite. They dont make the extra effort. We don't feel we are in a boutique hotel in that sense. We were able to check in at 3pm only. Which was ok as the area is nice and we went for a walk before the check in.

I usually stay at hotel cambon which was full and I would rather recommend cambon over this one for the same price / value.

I find the decoration a bit dark and so are the rooms. But this is just a question of taste I guess!!

All in all, it's a nice hotel but for this price I will try another hotel next time.

Just returned from a superb three night stay at La Maison Favart in sunny Paris. The hotel is small but perfect and has luxurious furnishings with all the facilities you would need. Situated on a quiet side street but close enough to walk to some great attractions, shopping and restaurants. By far one of the best features of this hotel is the wonderful staff who could not do enough to ensure our stay was brilliant and offered us great restaurant bookings at late notice but are also so welcoming. The great reviews for this hotel are fully justified and this is a real gem of a hotel in a beautiful city. Already wanting to return. Thanks for a great stay !!!

Room Tip: Room 27 is super with windows opening on to Opera Comique

We spent two nights at La Maison Favart and I cannot fault it. The staff were friendly, attentive and eager to help. The hotel is in a great position and we found ourselves walking to and from the hotel both up to Monmartre and down to Rue de Rivoli and The Louvre. Being set back from the main Boulevard down a quiet street we weren't disturbed by the sounds of the city at all either.
