From the street, Monhotel Lounge & Spa appears to be a stately Parisian townhouse, complete with ivy spilling from wrought iron window balconies. Behind the stone façade, though, the mood is decidedly playful. In the lobby you’ll see a bowl of rainbow-colored sweets, poster-size Warholesque prints and a chandelier encased in a red cylindrical shade from Dutch design firm Moooi.
Bed and Bath
Lighthearted design touches can be found throughout the 36 rooms and suites. Each has a print of a Hollywood star (George Clooney goofing around, Marilyn Monroe at her sultry best), Philippe Starck table lamps and Alcantara wall coverings. Executive Rooms, which occupy a privileged position at the corner of the building, feature open-plan slate bathrooms with stand-alone tubs and separate rain showers. Brew yourself a potent café with your Nespresso machine and soak up the view of prestigious Avenue Foch.
When it’s time for an aperitif, hit the bar, where the staff is known to shake up some killer drinks in a candlelit lounge setting with classic films projected on a screen. The spa treatment room is a rarity in a hotel this size. Painted black, its ceiling studded with starlike lights, the spa room is ideal for a couples massage in the dark — as if your stay in Paris weren’t romantic enough already.
How to Get There
Ideal location for shopping and touring around down town Paris. One can reach almost every tourist attraction on foot. Good breakfast. And very nice hotel personnel. They even purchased a water boiler after I expressed like drinking tee in my room.
My friend and I spent a weekend at this hotels. The property and rooms were very cozy with modern and clean furnishing. It was only a few minutes walk from Champs Elysees and very reasonably priced for that. Staff were very helpful, friendly, attentive and available 24/7. Highly recommend for solo travelers or couples.
Our stay here was lovely. It is not exactly located really close to cafes, restaurants, and so forth as it's located on a somewhat quite side street within walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe as well as a bit longer walk to Champs Elyesees for dining/shopping and picking up the metro.
The hotel premises is very clean and tidy. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The only "downsides" would be that my room on the 3rd floor was a bit on the dark side, seeing as much of it is dark/black, walls/furnishings and could use some extra lighting at night. The Wifi is "sketchy"...sometimes working fine, and sometimes not...I could pick up the Wifi from a nearby hotel stronger at times. Also, only a kettle and INSTANT powdered coffee packets offered after seeing on the webpage that the rooms had coffee service. We found out during our stay that only "PREMIUM" rooms had Nespresso coffee makers. That was a disappointment. Guess our rooms were not considered "premium". The balcony is lovely but not accessible. The breakfast bar was very nice well set up and the food quite tasty for self service, and the coffee was good. There is currently NO evening bar in that location..even though the website claims there is, and as for the Spa? Never saw a brochure or advertisement in our room or at the front desk advertising services. Granted, we didn't ask, but if the Spa was operational, I would think something would have been said at check in, or brochures in our rooms to invite you to use the spa for services. Not sure that was in business like the bar that is only open for breakfast service only..not alcohol at night as advertised.
The gym, though small, and we didn't use it during our stay, was bright, clean and sufficient.
Overall, we had a nice stay here.
