Situated in the city’s prime 1st arrondissement, the 19-century Hotel Mayfair Paris offers a traditional Parisian experience, from the wrought iron and glass canopy above its entrance to the Versailles style flooring, red leather ceiling and original furniture in the bar. The 47 wallpapered rooms and suites are decorated with prints depicting French history and have noble mahogany furniture. Elsewhere, there’s a very low-key bar that doubles as a lounge, serving daily breakfast, and although there’s no spa, treatments can be arranged in the privacy of your own room.
In the Area
The hotel is close to the historic Paris Opera, which offers ballets, operas and other performances, and a short walk from the iconic department store Galeries Lafayette. The Louvre and its innumerable famous objets — the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, etc. — is a quick walk away. For a stylish shop, head to Surface to Air’s flagship store. This retail spot isn’t just about fashion; it’s an art gallery and film studio, too. And the famous department store Galeries Lafayette has the world’s largest shoe department.
How to Get There
Great staff and breakfast, Paris 1, walking distance to all major attractions, renovated rooms on the higher floors. As in many old buildings you can hear if a neighbor decides to have a shower late at night. Very loud noise from the pipes. Thank God it only happened once !
We came here in October 2019. Check in was smooth and we got help with our bags up to our room. The newly renovated room was good, not great, but good. Bed was very hard but we slept like babies the whole trip (Maybe because of the 20.000+ steps we took walking around Paris). The Hotel is located close to everything since it's walking distance to the high fashion shopping and also the subway if you want to go elsewhere. I liked the old fashioned feeling on the hotel, but i think it was a bit over prices and it really annoyed me that you "had" to leave your key in the reception when you left and even though they changed staff in the lobby you could just say a number and get a key. We even got the wrong key once.
To summeroize: Great location, an good hotel but leaving the key feels outdated and not so safe.
We stayed at the Hotel Mayfair Paris for 5 nights last week in a renovated, deluxe room. The hotel is ideally situated - around the corner from the beautiful Tuileries Gardens, walking distance to the Louvre and other main sites and easy to reach the Seine and Left Bank. The renovated rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. The staff, especially Leticia at the front desk and Ronnie the bellman, are very friendly and helpful. Our only complaints were that they don’t offer water or coffee machine in room (minor issues) and that the bed is unbelievably hard (major issue)- so much so that we both awoke each day with terrible pain in our shoulders, hips and back. It was so bad that as much as we enjoyed other aspects of the hotel, I’m not sure we can stay there again. Perhaps if they upgrade the mattresses along with the room decor.
