Le Parc Sofitel Demeure Hotels
55-57 Avenue Raymond Poincare, 16th Arr., Paris, Ile-de-France, 75116, France
Definite luxury. Check out the website for a virtual tour etc.
Its in a great location between the Arc de Triomphe and the Trocadero, convenient for Metro etc.
It was an independent when I was there, and now part of Accor's upmarket sofitel brand.
Unique Quality: Made up of 4 houses amalgamated, with a garden in the middle. Great rooms, great food (Michelin 1 star). Lovely bar too.
A romantic hotel in Paris!
A beautiful place in the centre of Paris. A nice hotel, very romantic and luxury!
Beautiful rooms, nice staff and a cute little bar!
Unique Quality: Breakfast was very good and the tips that the staff you give for walking in Paris are very good and easy to follow up!
Directions: Located between the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower.
Nice and near the tower
A interesting little hotel in the heart of Paris. Being only a few minutes walk from the tower and the 'hop on, hop off' bus line is a big plus for the tourist.
Staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English.
However there was one thing missing from the room, a coffee/tea pot! If you like a cup of java before going out, you must bring your own instant coffee, cup and settle for hot tap water. Other wise be prepared to put your robe on and order $$ room service.
Restaurant was fair. We asked for a table in the smoking area, and was told they didn't have a smoking area. However after our meal when leaving we found they did have a smoking area.
The dinner was excellent, however the breakfast was fair at best.
Unique Quality: While there isn't a great view, they do have a very nice court yard. During warm weather, you can even eat outside.
For those who travel with their laptops they offer high speed in room internet connections.
For people who like bath tubs, (which are missing from many hotels) this one has a nice big one.
Directions: About a mile from the Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower View
This hotel holds a special Parisian memory for me. It was the hotel I stayed at during my first Parisian vacation.
While I love this hotel I haven't stayed there again as the location is too far away from where I really wish to be-in the 5th & 6th districts-necessitating taking the metro each time. First of all the hotel is located in the 16th arrt. When you walk out of the hotel you can see the Eiffel Tower in front of you. In fact, the whole tower is visible from top to bottom so if you wanted, you can take unlimited beautiful photos of the tower from the hotel's street. Some rooms on the hotel's top floor do have Eiffel Tower views also.
Most of all the hotel is old-world styled. When I stayed there the maids still wore the traditional black and white uniforms that you always associate Parisian maids with.
And the elevator was the bird cage type with this nice ironwork -totally Parisian. You could use the stairs instead and would not be sorry as it was beautiful-a bit winding but not so narrow.
If you know the famous chef, Joel Robuchon, his signature restaurant, Jamin, is located near the hotel at 32, rue de Longchamp.
Also another famous chef, Alain Ducasse, presides at another restaurant nearby. That one is called 59 Poincare, the name representing the street address. The restaurant is in the Hotel Sofitel Le Parc.
Designer shopping is found about a block or so from the hotel at Ave. Victor Hugo.
We stayed at the Sofitel Le Parc for three nights from the 11 September.
Firstly, the location was excellent, a ten minute walk each way to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Troccadero Metro is about a three minute walk.
We chose a Junior Suite and were very happy with the size of the room and decor, very traditional.
The King bed was very decedent with a lovely feather topper. In fact the bed was more super king in size. The room was in a good state of maintenance, very clean and fresh and also came with a lovely standard of bathroom amenities.
Although we found dinning on site expensive it was never a problem as there were so many bistros, cafes and patisseries almost within arms reach and in fact we discovered a Monoprix on the Champs Elysees where wine, Champaign, cheese etc was very reasonable.
The staff were friendly, it was always lovely emerging from the lift every morning to a friendly "bonjour" from the Concierge.
We would definatly stay at the Le Parc again when we return to this beautiful city.
Friendly Staff, Well Placed
We had a 3 night mid week break at this hotel, and the location was perfect, 2 minutess walk to a gorgeous square with a fountain (turn left out of the hotel) and 5 mins walk to the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero (right out of the hotel). The food in the restauraunt was pricy but wonderful, and a must if your staying here for more than one night. We also ate at Convivium a Sicilian restauraunt just 2 minutes walk fantastic food ~ and really reasonable price! We stayed at the Parc on a B&B basis and found plenty of selection each morning. We were upgraded to a superior room, and although we were told by the manager that the beds were very comfortable they were too soft for us, but that would be my only whinge, and of course not everyone wants to sleep on a board! Overall though it is a lovely hotel in a great location to explore the city, get on the Batobus ~ 13 euro for 2 days and ideal for sightseeing, be warned, if you go in July the city is really hot take plenty of water if you like us decide to walk back to the hotel from the Grand Palace.. its a long long way!.
4 stars no way ever
The hotel room is a dump chipped paint peeling wallpaper pretencious albeit tacky canopy tiny shower insufficient lighting
YUCK I am in my ugly little room right now and have only one more day here total yucik
Stayed at this Hotel over the New Year weekend and used it as a base to sightsee the heart of Paris. The Hotel is in a good location making it feasible to walk to many of the major sights without using public transport. Its 5 minutes from the Trocadero, 10 minutes from the Eiffel Tower, 10 minutes from L'arc d'Triomphe and 15 minutes walk from Champs Elysee.
Slightly further afield, (within a 10 euro cab fare) is Blvd Haussman for Paris' best shopping, Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame and le Louvre.
The hotel is clean, and beautifully decorated, and they have some larger suites that were sufficient for a cot for our baby and a bed for our six year old in the same room as our double queen size. Plus the sofitel beds and duvets are just the best!
The onsite bar service was courteous, and I imagine that the beautiful courtyard would be an excellent place to have a drink in the warmer months.
Restaurant was excellent, if a bit expensive. And the buffet breakfast was good, but pricey at 27 euros.
Having stayed at a few ropey Parisian hotels in my time, I'm delighted to say that this one is a gem. Good for Family and couples alike.
Gorgeous, romantic...if only we could live there!
Stayed at Le Parc for a week in August, after almost 3 months travelling Europe, and it was the most amazing week of our entire trip!
The room was gorgeous - cosy and romantic with French provicial furniture, a canopied bed, beautiful toiletries and the most enormous marble shower we've ever seen! The bed itself was like sleeping on a cloud (gotta love that Sofitel linen) and every evening the maid appeared to turn down the sheets, put out our slippers and put chocolates on our pillows. What bliss.
Location was perfect for sightseeing, and we could see the Eiffel Tower from our window. Lots of beautiful stores nearby (chocolate, perfume, pastries) and plenty of lovely eateries.
The quintessential Paris experience - from now on, we'll only stay here when we visit Paris!
Loved Le Parc!
A lovely quiet hotel, in a great area, close to Metro and restaurants. Very nicely decorated rooms, comfortable king sized beds and pillows.
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was great...highly recommended!
We arrived in Paris very early in the morning (6am)jetlagged and expecting to be told that our room wouldn't be available until after lunch... but we were met with a very friendly english speaking receptionist who organised a room within minutes.
A lovely staff member showed us to our 'pretty chambre' to rest. and explained how to use the cable television.
The concierge couldn't have been more helpful as were all the restaurant staff...we enjoyed our stay so much that we booked again for the last four days in Paris on our way home...all in all 'a great experience!'
