Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I chose the Buddha Bar Hotel due to proximity of my meetings in Paris and cost. I was not disappointed. This is a unique property with a funky vibe to it. My room was on the fifth floor. I was a little nervous given some outdoor music but it stopped by 11PM. Room decor is a bit funky but it was very nice/clean/comfortable. Breakfast room service came on time and the food was tasty. While the hotel is tucked away on a side street, it took a while for an Uber to show up, but that's not the hotel issues. Overall, Buddha Bar Hotel is a definitely a keeper.
Location is in the heart of high end shops. Chic hotel meant for non family traveller. Room size is moderate, facing the street. I felt the room is a bit dark. My toddler son was not do fancy about this place, me neither. Instagramable though.
While I can't comment on their facilities (which actually looked nice on the brochure), I can comment on their abhorent customer service. My wife and I had recently booked a visit to Buddha Bar Hotel as part of 10th anniversary celebration trip to Paris. About a week before our visit, we had tried on several occasions to contact the concierge service for advice about tours and restaurants - we never received a call or email back which I thought to be odd for a 5 star luxury hotel. However, the best (or worst) was yet to come. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip to Paris at the last minute at the airport due to the fact that France will not allow you to travel into the country with a valid passport if it is set to expire within 3 to 6 months. While the Budda Bar Hotel was silent when it came to returning calls for advice about planning our vacation, they were extremely quick to respond to our request for a refund or credit for the $3000 that we had paid for a trip that we could not take - THEY FLAT OUT REFUSED. While refusing to offer us any refund or credit, their reservations manager had the audacity to suggest that we try to book a stay at their hotel at another time!!!! So congrats to the Budda Bar Hotel Paris - in stealing $3K from us, your city has probably lost twice as much as money from a trip that we won't be taking to Paris. Your despicable actions have turned us completely off to visitiing France or spending any more money on luxury French products.
I chose this particular hotel in Paris as I was celebrating my wedding anniversary on a Paris /Beijing extravaganza with a Chinese theme. The suite was large and opulent, decked in shades of red, black and gold, with a dragon printed on the bathroom mirror. I could actually imagine most French people recoiling at the most untraditional decor, which is not for everyone, but personally I liked the unapologetic originality and extravagance of it! The hotel is in the 8th arrondissement, right next to the Tuileries in a very chic quarter, which whilst stunning, has a couple of downsides. You may have read about the gilets jaunes without realizing that this is the area that effectively shuts down at weekends because of the demonstrations. The police presence is striking. Lots of Hermès and Chanel stores to set fire to around here, and right next to the residence of President Macron. No room either for a traditional boulangerie to pick up some croissants. But the area has an undeniable high end feel to it most certainly. Service wise, a little bit hit and miss. Concierge had some good local recommendations and there are a lot of good restaurants around here. Turndown service sporadic, and impossible to get any additional toiletries or coffee in a timely fashion. I actually thought it might be because French staff do not work on Sundays but they do, so there is something amiss in the methods. Little niggles but a bit upsetting to come back to an unmade bed, dirty towels and open curtains after a late night out at this price point. All in all, a good stay in a spacious themed hotel but I’m not sure I would make a point of staying here again.
very good location near La Madeleine and Faubourg St Honoré. Received an upgrade which was highly appreciated. Big room and very comfortable bed with fine linen.. Rainshower. Very nice courtyard where lunch is served. Friendly and helpfull staff. We will return
I arrived earlier than check in at Buddha Bar Hotel but was greeted by their incredibly friendly staff and a prepared room. And the aroma! The lobby greets you with smells of delicious exotic perfumes from their display (I couldn't resist purchasing a bottle myself). I booked the Studio Suite and it was beautifully appointed and spacious. It offered gorgeous Asian inspired decor and the tallest windows overlooking the garden area. The staff was very prompt, courteous, and engaging. Buddha Bar was the highlight of my latest trip to Paris and I'm keen to return here for all of my future trips to the City of Lights.
I’ve been coming to Paris for 5 years on business looking for a home from home-after at least 10 different hotels I’ve found my perfect nest...cozy kind safe perfect location and delicious food ....I’ll be back
Close to shopping and in nice calm surroundings. Overpriced breakfast ( but was good) and room service . Very helpful and service minded staff. Nice atmosphere at the hotel! Would stay at Buddha Bar hotel again.
Fantastic hotel in great location. Few steps away from the hearth of Paris and the most famous shopping places, the hotel is highly recommended for couple who wants to enjoy Paris and its romantic places. Staff is very kind and helpful and hotel style is really worth it.
We have been here for the 6th time and it's still a great place to spent a couple of days in Paris. Great location, and service and hospitality are at a realy high level. This hotel is realy making your stay an excellent one in Paris. Thank you.
