If you’re a fan of Art Deco, you’ll love L’Hotel Du Collectionneur’s long corridors lined with period prints, the liberal use of marble and the genuine antiques interspersed with convincing reproductions. The reception area is vast and glitzy, with a gorgeous display of fresh flowers, and the courtyard garden is a rare luxury in Paris — perfect for sunny summer afternoons.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are stylish, spacious, uncluttered and comfortable. All bathrooms, in green marble, have a shower and lovely products from Gilchrist and Soames; some come with a tub. All rooms have WiFi and flat-screen TVs, while those on the top floor have small balconies and views of the Eiffel Tower.
The large brasserie-style restaurant Le Safran serves traditional French cuisine; it’s presided over by head chef Philippe Daigneaux. And there’s live music twice a week in the Purple Bar. Guests in Executive Rooms have the added bonus of 24-hour access to the lounge on the Executive floor (accessible only to those armed with their gold Executive card), where snacks and refreshments are served throughout the day. The luxe spa has a hammam, hydrotonic bath and massage rooms.
How to Get There
Nice, comfortable hotel in the heart of Paris. We stayed here as part of an Avalon pre-cruise package. Very large selection for breakfast. Free Internet. Good sized rooms for Paris and very comfortable bed. The only downside was that the restaurant was closed for lunch and dinner I believe due to re-modelling.
Lovely hotel from the moment we walked into the spotless gorgeous reception. Attentive staff, including very helpful doormen who speak perfect English.
Our room was spotless and quiet on the 3rd floor.
Breakfast buffet is good and served in beautiful surroundings. Staff keep the tables clean and very attentive. The bar is lovely for a drink after a long day of sightseeing.
Well placed close to the Champs Elysee but just far enough away from the madding crowd...and close to the Metro so easy to get around. Theres a very nice Italian restaurant close by and plenty of restaurants within walking distance around the Arc de Triomphe. A classy hotel with attentive friendly staff
The hotel was amazing, the staff was super Nice and friendly. The location was also perfect, and the interior was super cool! If you are travelling to Paris this is the place to be! The executive lounge was also very good
Beautiful hotel,friendly staff ,very close to tourist attraction a short 5-10 minutes taxi ride , very close to the best shopping street in Paris 40minte walk or 5mint taxi ride ,a few good restaurant option near hotel if you arrive and need to eat
The worst hotel I have ever stayed at, ever!
Never get water or towels , they take cups etc from your room and never replace them .You ring and you get passed from person to person, that’s if they ever answer ! There is no pool even though it’s on their website , executive lounge is not better than a cheap truck stop, food is awful !!Jackhammers doing maintenance on the roof all day , directly above our room with no notice , management brush you off and say I’m sorry for the inconvenience . They are not sorry , it’s just a standard comment they have practiced well. If I was the GM I would be extremely embarrassed as service and running a decent hotel starts and ends with the GM.
We have traveled to many many places and haven’t come accross anywhere so bad !
All fellow New Zealand travellers and beyond , please save your money and your patience and stay somewhere else, it’s simply not worth your sanity ...
