Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • One of the best rated luxury hotels in Paris, with well-reputed service
  • Top-floor indoor pool and outdoor sun lounge with views
  • 2 restaurants including the 3-Michelin-star Epicure, and 24-hour room service
  • Beautiful spa with 3 floors, including a Turkish bath and playroom for kids
  • Large historic property with private garden
  • Rooms are spacious and come with high-quality furnishings and minibars
  • Marble bathrooms come with double vanities and bidets
  • Fitness center has modern equipment and natural light
  • Daily afternoon tea service with occasional "Fashion High Teas"
  • Extensive Children's Programme makes this a family-friendly option
  • Primary setting in the film Midnight in Paris

Cons

  • Some of the highest prices in Paris
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Dated, lower quality comforters

Bottom Line

The 88-room Hotel Le Bristol opened its doors in 1925 during the Roaring Twenties, and today is still one of Paris' best-known luxury hotels. It offers impressive amenities for its small size, including a sunlit indoor pool (a rare find in Paris); a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Epicure; and a lovely spa with three floors featuring a Turkish bath and playroom for kids. Families are welcome in this posh environment: There's a dedicated Children's Programme, and little ones may appreciate the fact that there's a resident cat roaming the hotel. Rooms are elegant, aside from the dated comforters, and vary in size and price. The hotel -- located on one of the most high-end shopping streets in Paris -- is steps to the Hermes flagship store, as well as avenue Montaigne and Champs Elysees.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A prime location near the Theatre Marigny and surrounded by high-end shopping

The Hotel Le Bristol has a fantastic location within walking distance to many of Paris' top sites including L'Arc de Triomphe, Tuileries Gardens, Le Louvre museum, and Musee d'Orsay. Boasting a historic spot along the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, the area is known as being one of the most fashionable streets in the world thanks to the presence of major fashion names such as Hermes and Lanvin. If this isn't enough to satiate a shopping urge, the hotel is also walking distance to avenue Montaigne and Champs Elysees for additional exclusive shops.

Paris is one of Europe's most densely populated cities, and is currently one of the world's most important business and cultural metropolises. Known as "The City of Lights" for its growth during the Age of Enlightenment, Paris is home to some of the world's most luxurious fashion (Hermes, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), iconic museums, and structures, as well as major media and business outlets.
