“Right Bank Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

After spending 3 days on the Left Bank, my wife and I concluded our well deserved honeymoon ( our 2nd honeymoon!) at this Right Bank gem. The front desk/concierge staff were fabulously helpful and accommodating. Bonjour to the father/son late nighters and the former Epcot representative. The blanket/comforter was oh so comfortable! Where can we get our own? The inspirational messages left on our pillow was a nice touch - very nice. Great location - close to the Metro but too close to Paris shopping. My wife loved the shopping a little too much! But seriously, this is a beautiful boutique hotel. Don't deny yourself an inn-like experience. Au revoir for now.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less car noise but the Parisian drivers were pretty good about not abusing their...

My wife and I stayed at the Athenee for 3 nights as the first leg of a vacation to France and other parts of Europe. We will keep it short and sweet as there is very little to be said about the Athenee and it is excellent.

The Athenee has a fantastic location adjacent to the Opera House, which is easy walking range to the Louvre and other destinations of note. The staff is exceedingly friendly (especially for Paris), and the hotel itself and the rooms, including the bathrooms, are updated, well-kept and exceedingly clean. Wi-Fi is provided free of charge and the bed was rather comfortable.

The room, of course, is an utter shoe box. We don't mean this as a slight, but rather it is expected when you pay this little to stay in this nice of a hotel in the heart of Paris. The size of the room, of course, hardly matters when you are out all day taking in all this marvelous city has to offer. For active people out in Paris (assuming there are no more than 2 of you), it would simply be foolish to pay standard Paris hotel prices when the Athenee does the job at half cost.

Highly recommend.

While traveling alone to Paris I found this boutique hotel and decided to book a 3 night stay. The staff alone made my trip. Helping me book trips to London and Giverny as well as helping me find my way around the city. The ambience of the hotel was fantastic and perfect for this solo traveler as well as having a great location. Thanks again to the amazing staff at Hotel Athénéé.

Just returned home from a 3night trip to Paris with my partner, and we couldn't have made a better choice of hotel to stay at. We booked the suite which was well worth the extra money, this is an independent boutique hotel so the rooms are quite small but the suite we had was perfect. The decor reflected the parisian charm, we had two french doors that opened onto the street and flooded light into the room. The room was spotlessly clean and very well kept. The bathroom exceeded expectations, with a tv screen fitted into the bath and traditional shutter doors. The bed was probably one of the comfiest we have ever slept in, and had lots of wardrobe space. The staff were extremely attentive and nothing was to much to ask. The location topped off the stay as you are central to all main tourist attractions, which can conveniently be visited on foot. We checked out at 12 on our last day but weren't catching the eurostar home whilst 9:15pm, the staff had no hesitation in us leaving our luggage at reception whilst we enjoyed our last day in Paris, and we had a fair bit of luggage and shopping. I can honestly not fault our stay in the slightest, and would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 401. It was a suite on the fourth floor, with extra space and brilliant natural li...

We travel to Paris for business on an annual basis. We have stayed at the Hotel Athenee before. In certain cases such as this trip we do not have time to investigate other hotels due to time constraints. When in this state we rely on previous experiences to ease our scheduling. We were very pleased with our stay at the Hotel Athenee. As before the atmosphere was perfect the service was spot on and our rooms were comfortable. Our stay was in two parts the first consisted of the Superior room and the second was the Deluxe room. Both rooms were comfortable, but the Deluxe room consisted of more space which was more preferable. If you are looking for ease in your trip and wish to depend on the hotel staff to assist you in finding restaurants or other activities then the staff at the Hotel Athenee is very professional and can be depended on for all reasonable requests. As for the location you could not ask for a better place as a launching point for viewing the sites in Paris and wonderful restaurants which are indeed very close.
As long as they maintain the high quality that is expected from this type of hotel we will not hesitate to stay again at the Hotel Athenee.

A wonderfully charming hotel for a quiet getaway by oneself or in couple. The staff is more than eager to please. Breakfast repas exceeded expectations with a delicious, high quality assortment of fish, meat and cheeses, fruit, breakfast granolas, yogurt, juices and sweets. Teas from Mariage Freres. Cappuccino, Chocolat chaud to accompany warm croissant or pain au chocolatat. The hotel also provides an excellent selection of wines. Decorated with comfortable elegance in mind. Only steps from La Madeleine, L'opera or fine shopping. A definite must if you are visiting Paris on business or for pure pleasure.

We had mixed feelings about this hotel.
Pros:
Very friendly and helpful staff
Very clean and superb location for exploring Paris.
Free WIFI in the room and it always worked

Cons
Very small room- even difficult to find a space for the empty suitcase.
Lovely bathroom but shower head was partly blocked so water spread everywhere! Had to use the hand-held shower to get a decent spray.
Poor pillows on bed
Very expensive breakfast- suggest you try one of the local cafés instead


Overall we felt the hotel was over- priced for the size of the room

Dear Customer,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your complimentary comments on the team and the location. We are really glad to hear that the service we gave you helped to make your stay more enjoyable.

We were deeply sorry to hear that your experience at the hotel did not meet your expectations and thank you for having informed us.

We have duly noted your impression concerning the overpricing and the shower head that was partly blocked, and will not fail to take your remarks into account.

Concerning the overpricing, we just want you to know that you will find several hotels in the area with the same size of rooms and the same rates. Next time, we’ll be really glad to give you our superior room with the terrace.

We trust that you will give us the opportunity to demonstrate, during a future stay, that the quality of Hôtel Athénée meets your expectations.

Reiterating our sincere apologies, we look forward to welcoming you again soon at Hôtel Athénée. In the meantime, we remain, Dear Customer, yours faithfully,

Manon & Hôtel Athénée team
