“3rd stay at this gorgeous Hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

My daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Fouquet's Barriere, Paris for the 3rd time. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and professional in every area of the Hotel. Our room was sumptuous in its decor and amenities. I particularly LOVE the complimentary bottle of Hermes perfume and complimentary mini-bar. Our room had the most magnificent outlook over the Champs Elysees thru ceiling to floor double glazed windows, which could be opened letting in the fresh air and wonderful sounds of Paris. In comparison to other 5 star hotels I have stayed in, through out the world, this is definitely my favourite! We will defiantly stay here again and again.

The breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice, great omelets and is available till 11, handy if you like a sleep in. Staff was very welcoming, helpful and polite. The staff all spoke English and was very pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious and smart, and the whole place looks like it has just been completely refurnished. We booked the hotel after reading previous reviews and we were not disappointed. My only recommendation is that the hotel has more French movies, with English subtitles, to enjoy. Wi-Fi connectivity was free in the whole building. Printing facility was available at the front desk for absolutely free.
I can't wait to come and stay here again. Excellent experience!!

Spent a weekend in this hotel. Really enjoyed impressive interiors of the hotel. Service was OK but we expected something really special. Made a good deal throug membership in the leading hotels of the world. Were no so impressed by dining in associated restaurant - too touristic. Overall experience was very positive, will probably come back.

I will never be tired of this hotel. I think they have the best service, I have ever experienced. I have stayed in this hotel 4 times and always was perfect. Not even 1 problem.
The front desk is friendly and helpfull. The breakfast, in the room or in the restaurant, is amazing. They offer free minibar all the stay (non alcoholic drinks) and Nesspreso coffee. In the turn down, they put chocolates (soooo tasty!!).
Love love the indoor swimmingpool... and the spa! =)

A previous reviewer stated "not relaxing" re. Fouquet's. Prior to my visit I thought that comment odd, but I can understand it now. While stylish and edgy sometimes, the room chairs and couches are not designed for either long-term comfort or nestling with a good book (why nestle, why stay in your room with the heart of Paris right outside!?--you are right to ask!). However, the large suite bed was extremely comfortable if one wanted to coccoon.

Butlers were helpful and most (except one gent) were unobtrusive. The cuisine was both fresh and delicious with much variety of choice.

Spa reception was marred by staff at desk bungling appointments, assuming that people somehow never make sequential appts (so, if you booked a massage followed by foot reflexology--they repeated to me a number of times: "you cannot have a foot massage and a regular massage at the same time"-well, duh, you can say that again--and they did...). Fortunately, therapist intervened and both treatments were had (not consecutive, mind you!).

A trip to the hotel bar was not altogether pleasant initially. I forgot to wear my Euroblacks and arrived in jeans (but black shirt) whereupon, thin blonde non-smiling lady asks: "can I help you sir"? Let's see, gentleman (I really am) walks into bar and hostess might optionally say: "here for a drink or to eat--where would you like to sit?". She was unable and after I stated I would like a drink, she was silent, gestured with her hand down the bar. I took off and was immediately intercepted by black (of course)-suited gentleman who said (guess what?) "can I help you sir"? At this point, I secured eye contact and said:"I'm a guest at this hotel and I would like a drink". He gave up and reluctantly seated me.
I ordered my martini (deflected the "dirty martini" encouragement) and relaxed. At that point, I rather strategically took out my suite key and placed it on the table. Guess what? Service improved 100% with bartender coming over to inquire as to the correct amount of vermouth, etc. Waiters so much more soilicitous. I suspect I am making this more of a "big deal" than I politely should, but there was that strong whiff of anti-something. Nuff said.

Overall, I would return because of location, cuisine, and concierge/reception/room service. (Laura will be grabbed soon as an assistant to some European President, I'm sure). Olivier, genuinely friendly and possessing just the right balance of sophistication and humor. Thanks Fouquet's, just a few "bumps" detailed as feedback that do not lower my rating of your fine hotel.

Room Tip: Look for another room if you smell smoker's presence. I do not think they have dedicated non-smo...

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you very much for having taken the time to write this detailed comment on TripAdvisor!

It was indeed a pleasure to read that you were overall satisfied with our services and enjoyed your stay with us. I am however very concerned by your constructive remarks regarding the comfort and in the room, the service at the Spa reception and at the Bar. I have already addressed these issues with the team concerned in order to prevent reoccurrence in the future.

On a more positive note, your enthusiasm for our hotel and particularly our Butler and Reception staff is very much appreciated and will be a great source of motivation for them. I will certainly not fail to convey your very kind compliments to Laura and Oliver!

We thank you again for your kind attention and we all look forward to welcoming you back at the Fouquet’s in a not too distant future.

Sincerely yours,

Pierre Ferchaud
