Excellent service, clean room, great location-close to the Seine, Museum D'Orsay, and very good restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. They even decorated our door for our anniversary.

We booked this hotel through SPG for a six night stay. It's a boutique hotel right in the center of all the 6th ARR. has to offer, yet close enough to other areas that aren't as touristy. Every staff member we came in contact was great, from the first day at check-in to the last day at check-out. We mentioned it was our 20th anniversary, and on the second day they had a bow on our door. The concierge desk was great answering all questions and suggestions of where to buy the simplest of items that you could only get in France to bring home. They also had Catacombs tickets that allowed you to skip the line, which was typically more than 2-3 hours. The gentlemen in the lounge/bar area were very friendly and helpful in answering our questions as to what suggestions they could give us. Upon check-out the same person at the front desk that checked us in even remembered us and knew which room we were in. Class of excellence in this hotel which I would bet rivals many of the larger hotels in the Champs Elysees area. An excellent hotel which we highly recommend.

Excellent service, delicious breakfasts, helpful and friendly staff, wonderfully appointed rooms and a beautifully decorated lobby in a terrific Saint-Germain des Pres location! I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Paris!

My mom and I stayed at the Bel Ami for one week in April. The hotel is in a great neighborhood, right next to one of the famous steak frites Entrecote locations and Cafe de Flore and walking distance to the Louvre and many other areas. The concierge is really the highlight of the hotel - dinner reservations at all restaurants I wanted to go to were made well in advance and confirmed multiple times and they were very helpful with planning visits to Versailles and museums. Rooms are small but very clean and serviced twice a day. Included breakfast was great as well - many choices. I will definitely stay here again and recommend any friend visiting Paris. Thank you Bel Ami!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Hotel Bel Ami. The location is excellent - we were able to walk to the Louvre and enjoy all the nearby cafes and restaurants. The staff was welcoming and helpful. HIghly recommend this hotel

Hotel Bel Ami feels like a small boutique hotel, and yet they host you as if they were one of the grand hotels on the right bank. The rooms are spacious with an urban feel, the lobby bar serves excellent coffee, a satisfying lunch and wonderful libations. The hotel is on a famous street, rue Saint Benoit, and a block from the haunts of the Lost Generation. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. In addition to all of this, the Concierge was extremely helpful and insightful, making dinner reservations for us at a number of new and very in demand restaurants.

Got my daughter and her husband 2 nights at the Bel Ami Hotel for their 5th anniversary. Great service, friendly staff, and my daughter said it was the second best thing about their brief stop in Paris. (The Eiffel Tower was the best!)

Just back from 3 nights at Hotel Bel Ami. They do many things very well, and several things poorly. First the positives: 1) if you want to spend time in the 6eme, you can't choose a better location. Off the main boulevards, so it's quiet, but equi-distant between the bustle of St Michel/5eme, Odean/Jardin du Luxembourg, the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. 2 min walk to the metro (line 4). 5-10 min from terrific shopping and Le Bon Marche. 2) The staff was very friendly and accommodating including allowing me to practice my rusty French, remembering snippets from earlier conversations, etc. The concierge has 'skip-the-line' tickets for many museums, etc. I also noticed the front desk and concierge staff being incredibly patient with various requests and needs of guests (some quite demanding). 3) The hotel looks and feels very on-trend for the neighborhood. Lovely (if not always practical) design. They clearly care about this and were working on design while we were there (we saw several designers and hotel staff looking at different materials, changes to the furniture arrangement in the public spaces etc). 4) The manager sends a lovely welcome note and a chocolate bar as you arrive. Nice touch. 5) There's a plug for a hairdryer in the bathroom!! This is no easy feat for a hotel in Europe. There was also a towel heater. Both of these things were great touches and much appreciated. What's ok: the gym. Yes, they have one, but it's small, humid and when I was there, pretty busy. There are 2 ellipticals, 2 bikes (the old-school LifeFitness kind, not a proper spin bike), a treadmill, a bench press, some free weights (including rubber-coated low weights for high rep type work-outs) and a multi-function machine as well as 1 mat and 1 inflated ball. There's a wall TV, no TVs on the cardio machines. So, it's fine, but hard to do anything other than the cardio when it's busy - not much floor space. Finally, on Saturday at 8am, there was a half-glass of wine on the counter, and the two pitchers of water with cucumbers or oranges were cloudy. You'd think that since people typically work out in the morning the cleaning staff would get that sorted out early morning! Luckily there's also a water dispenser in the gym area. What's poor: 1) Recognition of SPG platinum status was nonexistent. Seriously - nothing. I stay at SPG properties 2-3 times/month and I was really surprised that there was no recognition, no choice of breakfast or points as at other Tribute properties (London and Miami recently). Even when I popped down to inquire about a larger room after seeing ours, no recognition (they looked me up in the system to confirm what kind of room I'd booked; I'd used SPG points). That was really disappointing given how often I frequent SPG properties and have for the past 20+ years. 2) They try but don't quite get service right. Our minibar (fridge) wasn't working and that was important as I was traveling with my daughter and we needed to keep some food for her refrigerated. It took 3 visits to the front desk over a 24 hour period. They did offer to let us use the kitchen refrigerator - but that was toward the middle/end of our stay and I couldn't imagine the patience that might require. Finally they replaced the minibar but failed to recognize that in our room, one must keep the key in the power switch by the door in order to keep the minbar running - and the cleaning staff removed the key left in the switch by the lovely man who escorted us to our room upon check-in. So staff needs to talk with each other -- if one staff member is going to leave a key, and cleaning staff removes it.... ??? Another communication issue - separating the two beds. Not a problem that it wasn't done right away, but had to request it a 2nd time after the first night. Then it was addressed, problem solved. 3) Room size. Yes, I expect small, but tiny (#321) -- especially as a Platinum guest? Wasn't big enough to do some yoga/stretches. This was important as kids under 16 aren't allowed in they gym and my daughter needed to do some stretches for PT. We looked at the fire safety map on the back of the door so we could see that ours was one of the smallest rooms in the hotel. When I asked about a larger room, they offered to do that for a supplement of 70 euro - understandable if we're asking to upgrade rooms but less understandable if we could tell other rooms in our category were larger. As we had 2 other sets of friends at the property, and neither of them are Platinum, it just made no sense they couldn't accommodate our request at 14.00h. 4) Skimping on the small things. The fact that our soap/shampoo etc wasn't replaced once during our stay was surprising. No problem - we made it last the entire stay, and I like the eco-sense of it, but still surprising for a 5* property. Also, we had 2 small waters in the room delivered on the 2nd day, but not every day - seems odd and inconsistent. 5) Practical design. Would be great to have a place to hang a wash cloth/hand towel that's not on the drying rack (which was behind the sink/ and right by the toilet in our room). Would also be lovely to have a hook or two near the door so that coats can be hung up some place other than the tiny wardrobe. So overall, some real positives but some disappointments too, nothing that can't be remedied moving forward (other than room size).

Great hotel - location was prefect for seeing central Paris; staff were brilliant (especially Janet), friendly and helpful; modern style hotel that was clean and organised; decent rooms and amenities. Would 100% stay again

Stayed over one night. Hotel is beautiful. Valet parking available. Room very spacious, especially for Paris standards. Bed comfortable. Did not stay long enough to fully enjoy the hotel amenities or explore the area around it. Was not able to have a late check out as there was a travel strike going on and the hotel anticipated that they will be fully booked. Staff very courteous and helpful. Highly recommended.
