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
We had a great stay the cleaning staff and front desk staff were excellent. The hotel is centrally located withing easy walking distance to the Louvre, the Seine River, and Champs-Elysees. The rooms and facilities were clean and the staff professional and courteous, even patient in helping me with my French. The last day we were charged for the full breakfast instead of the buffet, other than that, we had a very good time. Be aware of pickpockets, scam artists, and younger age groups of teens targeting tourists.
I saw a horrible scene in this hotel today. A tour guide coming to greet her clients was rudely refused access to toilets here... even though her clients were staying at the hotel. The receptionist was an absolute clod. She ran after the guide as though she were some kind of common criminal! What kind of world does the Mayfair believe it’s living in? Toilets are a human right and no one deserves to be treated the way this poor lady just doing her job was. I was so offended, I decided to tell all of my friends and clients to never use this mediocre-at-best hotel. In the world of Airbnb, there is no need for this rude behaviour. Run far, far away from this place
Great hotel well located, we booked a larger room as we where there for 5 nights early July. Helpful reception staff & great cleaning staff, room was always clean upon our return each day. Easy access to all Paris has to offer. Would recommend if staying in Paris.
