Renaissance Paris Le Parc Trocadero Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We recently stayed four nights. We picked the hotel based on the generally positive reviews but found it disappointing. On the plus side, we really did enjoy the location. It's a short walk to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, but it's just far enough off the beaten path that you don't feel suffocated by the hordes of tourists. The staff was also unfailingly friendly and professional (shout out to Baptiste). The wireless internet service was impressive for a hotel. Negative...there were a lot for us: 1) The general condition of the rooms was not acceptable given the (supposed) caliber of the hotel. The carpet was worn and stained and furniture showed significant wear. 2) The shower, as others have mentioned, is absoultely awful. You will essentially shower with one hand constantly adjusting the temperature as the water can swing wildly from lukewarm to scortching hot. The tub had visible mold. 3) There is no temperature control in the room. To be clear, there is a temperature control on the wall...it just doesn't do anything. It was freezing the entire stay as the AC was blasting and we had no way of turning it off. The outside temperature dipped to the low 50s (f), so you can imagine just how cold it was in the room each morning. 4) It is VERY noisy. As others have mentioned, you can hear your neighbors very clearly, which led to a few middle of night wake up calls (glad the folks around us were enjoying the party, I guess?). Also, we were stationed by a utility closet used by the housekeeping staff, so it was impossible to get peaceful rest during the middle of the day. There was constant banging and speaking just outside the door. 5) There was one functioning elevator. We gave up on waiting after the first day and just started using the stairs. We're able bodied people, so not a big deal for us, but inconvenient. 6) Not an uncommon problem in Paris, but the room very much smelled of smoke (it also left all of our clothes and belongings smelling of smoke). While we certainly didn't let our room ruin our stay, it was definitely disappointing. It's a beautiful property in a great location. It could be great. The manager will not respond to this review with some platitudes about appreciating the feedback and striving to make things better, but I don't have much hope!
We have stayed here several times and probably would not go elsewhere in Paris- this is a great location, half way between the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, very near to two Metro stations to get anywhere else as well. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and go out of their way for all your needs. The restaurant is great but pricey, but there are numerous other options nearby as well to try. The rooms are redecorated a few years ago - very modern, great decor and facilities, and adequately sized. The larger rooms (which we have stayed in before) are really sumptuous! The courtyard itself s a highlight - a very pleasant relief from the city! For us, the courtyard, the trees and the peace were better than the advertised Eiffel Tower views!! In spite of the price, this is our go- to spot in Paris!!
We checked in on Friday September 1st and we were warmly greeted by the front desk staff. The front desk personnel did their best to allow us to check in early. This is a boutique style hotel. The lobby is small but modern. We were told that our room was an upgraded corner large room on the forth floor. In my opinion, the room was average. We had a view of the garden, but there isn't much to see other than trees. During our stay their was a power outage and the shower head broke. When we called the front desk, they immediately addressed the issues. The shower is in an english style tub with no door. The tub is very high and difficult to get in and out of. If you have any type of knee issues or injuries you might find it very difficult to get in and out of. There is a small glass divider and when we showered water would get all over the floor! The hotel is within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and some great dining choices. The hotel itself didn't have much dining choices! If you want to stay by the Eiffel Tower and do not want to deal with high traffic tourist, this is the hotel to stay at.
This is our second stay at this hotel in six years. Lots of fabulous updates since 2011. First time we stayed our room was in the back building on the top floor. This was a very "cozy" room with a small gabled window. It was dark and not very inviting. This time we stayed in their family sized room that was in the main building. This room had large windows and was bright and cheery. The lobby was beautifully decorated. We had delicious breakfasts in their restaurant. We love the staff and everything about this hotel. It is located a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower in one direction and Victor Hugo Square in the other. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. A great choice.
Wonderful property not far from the Trocadero and fabulous views of the Tour Eiffel, the Rennaissance Le Parc is quiet, modern well appointed (nice lighted mirror in the bath) with helpful and dfriendly staff. Despite being in the heart of things it was quiet and the air conditioning worked well and quietly a real plus in August. We felt that this was one of the better values for our money in Paris.
Great: helpful staff; convenient location (just a few minutes from Eiffel Tower and Trocadero metro station) Good: simple but satisfying breakfast; value for money in Paris Fair: the rooms and common areas
Stayed here for a couple of nights in early August 2017. Perfect location for seeing everything. Beautiful rooms and in a very quaint location. The staff was great and very attentive. Pricey, but worth it.
We weren't sure about this hotel when we checked in. The staff immediately put us at ease. They were knowledgable, intelligent, and did whatever they could to make us comfortable. Our room was amazing - a suite overlooking Rue Raymond Poincaire in the 16th Arrondissement. Staff thought the room would have too much ambient noise and had offered us a smaller suite in the rear of the property at first. However we found this room to be wonderful - never bothered by the noise. The interior decorations are modern, creative and stylish. This hotel has a personality!
My husband stayed here for 3 weeks and I joined him at the end of his trip for 3 days. The rooms are a bit small and could feel cramped, especially when you're used to the hugeness of American hotels, but they definitely do not lack anything! The bathroom funnily was huge! The windows overlooking a courtyard garden was very charming indeed and the restaurants around and the small walk to Trocadero made it an ideal location. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
My husband and I chose the Renaissance Paris le Parc Trocadero for our stay in Paris to celebrate my Birthday. From the moment we arrived (early morning) the staff was engaged and accommodating. We were given a lovely room overlooking the courtyard. Having read previous reviews we were prepared for the open showers and low lighting in the bathroom. It was not a problem at all. Our room was comfortable enough to unpack move around and use the ironing board without feeling cramped. The beds were comfortable, we slept well each night. A unique feature at this hotel (for us anyway) was that you have to insert your key card into a slot in the wall to keep the lights on. Being Marriott reward members we took advantag of the daily breakfast. It was very enjoyable and included a large assortment to choose from. The dining space is very comfortable and inviting. The scrambled eggs were loose, but my husband said they tasted good and ate them most mornings. The baked goods were delicious. The location was perfect for us. In a quiet neighborhood close to the Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees. We walked to both and enjoyed strolling along the neighborhood, eating at several good resturants in the immediate area during our stay. The Metro was close and convenient for getting to other areas. We took a day trip to Versailles and loved coming back to the area in the evening. Since we stayed during Bastille Day, we were able to get a great view of the Fireworks at the Eiffel Tower and have a late dinner afterwards, both very close to the hotel. It was a beautiful memorable night. The hotel staff was top notch. The Assistant Front Office Manager, Lyubov, was amazing. From the initial greeting to the very special surprises that ensured my birthday and our first visit to Paris was memorable. Warm personable and genuine, she was pivotal to my postive expierence. The Doormen, Navigators, waitstaff and housekeeping were all cheerful and pleasant. Thank you Renaissance for a Perfect Paris Holiday.
