Le Bristol Paris, Oetker Collection

The ultimate reference for French Art de Vivre

Le Bristol Paris, Oetker Collection

An icon of French elegance and art de vivre, Le Bristol Paris is located at one of the city’s most prestigious addresses on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The first to receive France’s “Palace” distinction, the hotel boasts 190 rooms and suites— among the largest in Paris — that are now completely renovated. An exceptional setting offering Oetker Collection’s legendary hospitality, Le Bristol is perhaps best known for its outstanding dining tradition, holding 4 Michelin stars between Epicure and 114 Faubourg. A spirit of joie de vivre permeates the hotel from early morning to after midnight with relaxation in the lush, 13,000 square foot court

Hotel Tip

The boiled eggs with gold leaf flakes and truffles at Epicure are a must for a decadent breakfast. –Sally Bird Melbourne, Australia

Classic Paris Hotel

By: Amanda

Reviewed on: 24 Oct 2017

Le Bristol is a classic hotel in Paris located near great shopping. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning looking out into their beautiful courtyard. It was raining in Paris during our stay so unfortunately we were unable to sit in the courtyard. We had a very large suite which was honestly larger than we needed but nonetheless amazing!

What an elegant yet cozy hotel. It was the perfect Parisian hotel. The breakfasts were delicious and sumptuous. My kids loved the resident cat. The staff was so warm and welcoming. The concierge team was incredibly helpful and assisted us in tickets to the Musee D'Orsay and the Catacombs. They also suggested a day trip to Versailles and while we didn't do it, they were able to arrange the whole day for us. The Spa was lovely and as a break from the sightseeing, we swam in the pool upstairs. What a great hotel!

It can be difficult for a hotel like Le Bristol to live up to its reputation, but it truly does. The care and consideration that our family received was unmatched and the hotel amenities (pool with great views of the city, Michelin started restaurants, world class spa, etc.) were outstanding. In any city other than Paris, I wouldn’t have wanted to leave the hotel at all — it’s that wonderful!

The Best in the World

By: A Fan

Reviewed on: 16 Jul 2019

We have been to Le Bristol many times. It is our home away from home in Paris. In our opinion (and we have traveled a lot) there is not a better hotel in the world. The staff, including the managing director Leah and her associate Jean Marie, manage to run a tight ship while at the same time being remarkably personable, available, and helpful. The concierges are the best as is the reception staff, all under the watchful eye of Eric Regnier. Epicure is a three star that is worth every penny, which a friendly, approachable, highly professional restaurant staff and outstanding food and wine. We can’t wait to go back to our favorite city in the world and stay at our favorite hotel in the world.

The hotel and the food were very expensive and not worth the price. Rooms were excellent but the food we had was mediocre. Highest price food we had in Paris and also the worst. The staff was excellent and so was the manager.

One of the best, if not the best, urban hotel I've ever stayed at. Amazing room, restaurants, bar, ad concierge service. I'm not going to look for any other luxury hotels in Paris ever again--this is the one for me. The prices at the courtyard bar/care were outrageous, though.

7 Nights, Paris and London, 5 Stars

Le Bristol came highly recommended by close friends and I pushed to book here. However, for the cost of the accommodations I don't think some rooms are worth the price. I went to the George V Hotel and The Ritz and the lobby areas are over the top beautiful- since I booked late, I didn't have all choices available. Next time would try a smaller boutique Sandi recommends or the George V or Ritz.

The attention to detail is impressive in this hotel! From the minute you meet the doormen to the people at the front desk and then look at the lobby, you know you are in luxury. The hotel manager was welcoming all the guests and couldn't have been kinder. The room was top notch as were the amenities. Truly one of the beat!
