Reviewed 14 October 2013

Hotel Bel Ami is a 3 stars hotel max if you are considering that the quality of the room is the key element or real critical value for an hotel. It's up to you to spend your night in the lobby or bar which are 4*.

Our room was 3 * maximum.

I made this gift, one night in hotel, to my son and his wife to celebrate his birthday.
We and they are parisians and we were looking for a very good hotel in the touristic part of Paris.
My wife and I visited the Bel Ami before booking. We visited exclusively redesigned rooms… without beeing informed that the hotel has not entirely be redesigned.
When I booked the room one month before the date I mentioned by mail that it was a gift …
When they came in they refuse the first room proposed because it's window was just facing a wall… very well done!
They selected the most awful room to celebrate birthday! Thank's a lot.

The bathroom of the second room was just correct for a 3 * hotel and the towels stinked.
Another point to be addressed, the SPA is not able to provide you couple massage in the same room…

My reco : Ask them to show you "your" room before signing-paying. Don't even think to e-book without written confirmation you'll have a redesigned room.

N.B. : The hotel's documents are quoting sometimes 4 * or sometimes 5 * … they are self-distributing easily stars.

I was really disapointed when my son made us his comments on the poor quality of the bedroom during last sunday brunch.
BRANDING
From this bad experience, Watch it when The Bessé signature is mentioned, it's not quality warranty.

I stayed in Bel Ami for 2 nights and it was a heavenly delight. The staff amazingly friendly, quick and professional.
The concierge service was fantastic, Thibault was a hero grace under pressure. The breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay there again am an avid fan.

My wife and I stayed here on the last half of our 9-night stay in the beautiful city after I came home from a military deployment. We were looking for great value and a place on the left bank since our first hotel was on the right, as well as a more "local" place, not a chain with a location in our city.
We were blown away with the fresh, modern look of the place. At check-in, the friendly staff grabbed our bags for us and gave us a brief tour of the hotel on the way up to our room.
The rooms were VERY nicely appointed - albeit a little small...welcome to Paris - and our window overlooked a couple of brasseries below. Great view of Paroisse Saint-Germain-des-pres nearby as well as all the sounds of the Parisian streets and music. One thing I'll say about our shower is (maybe this is a Parisian thing) that there is never "full glass", so you get cold air on your bum and/or water on the floor outside. But we experienced that at our previous hotel as well so as stated this may not be proprietary to Bel-Ami.
We loved the breakfast every morning - awesome food, great wait staff and great coffee!
The location was incredible! 5-10 minutes to the river, Musee Rodin, Cafe Les Deux Magots and many other landmarks. My wife and I walked almost the entire city during our stay and we never felt too far from anything nor did we ever feel unsafe.
If you can afford the stay here, spend the money - well worth it!

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing a street - preferably Blvd Saint-Germain or Blvd Saint-Benoit.

From NZ to paris for 2 nights meant I was in the air longer than I was on the ground. Which is a bummer if the place to be on the ground is Paris. But made easier by a sweet hotel off the Blvd St Germain. Really good people on the desk, wonderfully quiet room, fairly easy place to hang out but so close to where I needed to be. And (for Paris) pretty reasonably priced.

Room Tip: I was at the back, and it was quiet

Was there with two colleagues a few weekends back. We had an amazing time! The hotel rooms are high quality and very modern/lovely. We also had the chance to meet Romain who did everything he possibly could to help us and was a true pleasure! Can't wait to go back.

We recently stayed at Hotel Bel-Ami and had a great experience - location, location, location, + fantastic service. We made a reservation very last minute, and they went out of their way to accommodate us - something you don't always experience in Paris. The hotel was clean and recently updated, and had a very sizeable room for what you typically find in Parisian and European hotels in general.

Roman was particularly helpful, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a comfortable stay. The hotel also helped us with night-off dinner reservations at Societe General next door. Overall, you can't beat the location, the standard of hotel, or the service. Would highly recommend.

Hotel bel ami was fantastic. Service was SUPERB - namely Roman, who accommodated my two colleagues and I at the last minute to ensure we had precisely what we needed. Fantastic job Roman!! If we're back in Paris at any point, the Hotel Bel Ami will be the first place we look to stay.
