Historical Traveller Reviews of Ambassador Concorde Hotel

Excellent hotel

from njh
We stayed here in December and it was a lovely stay. Our floor was I think the 2nd or 3rd (the one with the business centre on it)and had recently been refurbished. The Hotel was very clean and grand in decor.

The rooms were large, clean and comfy with lots of storage. The Bathroom was more than adequate - the only strange thing was the seperate WC which apparently only comes with the Deluxe rooms. We didn't see the point to this as it was like going to the loo in a cupboard and not very pleasant at all!

However the location was great - 5minutes from La Fayette Mall and had two subways within 5 mins walk so convenient for travel to all tourist sites.

The only down side was that this hotel really is in the shopiing/downtown district so don't expect the beauty of the latin quarter - its very busy!

The staff were all friendly and helpful and the Restaurant Haussman had gorgeous evening meals some of te best food I've ever tasted- however it was a set menu so you couldn't dine there a lot and I wouldn't recommend the breakfast it was over priced and great!

I would recommend this hotel for couples and families and possibly business tripa- although the 'Business centre' as they call it is a tiny cold room with two quite slow computers in it - but on the plus side many rooms have internet connections in them anyway!

Wonderful choice

Excellent Choice

from A TripAdvisor Member
My first trip to Paris and an excellent choice of hotel. We got a good deal with Eurostar. Staff were lovely, rooms clean and very warm. It is in an excellent location, walked to the Louvre, Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur, but it is only one minute from La Fayette Metro station. It took us approx 10 minutes by taxi from Gard du Nord station. The only downside was that drinks in the bar were very expensive, but then they are in 4* hotels in London. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we were on a room only deal.
I always need a coffee to wake up so took the travel kettle, a good tip as they don't seem to have tea and coffee making facilities in French hotels.

Everything we hoped it would be

from TaraBB
Wonderful choice of hotels. My review would be about the same as the reviewer from San Diego (aug 2005), pictures and all. We had the Deluxe room...basically what sets it apart from Std or Superior room is that toilet is in separate room from bathroom, there is original furniture from the 1920s, the bed is King, and the room has balcony over Blvd Haussmann... Well worth the small price difference and having a room over the street was not noisy at all if balcony doors were closed. Spacious and extremely clean bathroom and room overall! We got a great rate at expedia so I wondered if I was getting "taken" but it was really a steal. The location can't be beat and the metro stops were closer than I thought. Just a block or two down on both sides of hotel. I was in Paris 10 years ago and the Parisians' attitudes towards Americans has def. changed for the better and everyone was very helpful wherever we went, and didn't mind speaking English when hearing our attempts at broken French. Hotel breakfast is not a good deal but there are many other options nearby- or... we had room service several times, and even tho its not cheap, its still cheaper than the hotel breakfast if you just want a pot of coffee and some pastries for 2 people. The hotel restaurant there was wonderful for dinner...and thats coming from someone who ate at Le Jules Verne in the same week...
Magnificent time at the Ambassador and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Best things we did practically speaking? Unless youre on a tight budget, just take a cab from the airport and it saves you the headache of trying to figure out public transportation in your first hours in a foreign country....save the Roissy bus for the way back when you are more "experienced". Paris Visite card for the Metro and the Museum card were a real value.... the museum card lets you bypass any ticket lines at most attractions and even in November, there were lots of lines!PS, if you want to book at Le Jules Verne, dinner reservations are about 6 months in advance for any nite of the week. We had slim pickings for a lunch reservation and we booked 4 months ahead of time...

Nice room pity about the noisy machine outside window

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was lovely until I tried to sleep and then the motor noise of some machine several floor below could be heard all night every night.

No tea/coffee making facilites and breakfast at €22 should have been included.

Room rather stuffy but if you opened the window then the noise was even louder.

If you stay in this hotel recommend you take ear plugs.

Stay away from this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stay Away, the hotel is very rude and they have no customer service skills what so ever. When we arrived we found out that they were overbooked even though we made our reservations six months prior. Never got a phone call or email. They moved us to another hotel outside of town which was terrible. They did not want to compensate us. We argued with them for a few hrs. They made it feel like it was our fault that they overbooked, and could care less about what happened. Stay away.

Great hotel, fab location

from champers
Have recently got back from my first ever visit to Paris. Stayed at the Hotel Ambassador Opera, and was very pleased with my choice. In a great location, and within walking distance of most of the main sights. Room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel bar did fab cocktails, (tried them every night!).

very pleased with the hotel

from Siam-Orchids
We were pleased with our deluxe room. Convenient location, near the metro, good shopping and sightseeing. We were not thrilled with the breakfast and didn't feel that it was worth 24 Euros but it wasn't a big deal. The hotel elevators were slow and small too but the room was nice and quiet with a great bathroom too. Nice lobby, helpful staff, good concierge desk. All in all, I'd give it an B+ to A-. It seems that we got a good rate too from Expedia.

Wonderful place to stay in Paris

from chrizan
I visited Paris with a friend ( we left our husbands at home) and found the Ambassador to be terrific! I originally read a TripAdvisor review that said the Breakfast room was full of cigarette smoke. I wanted to set the record straight by saying that they have changed the rules to a NO SMOKING environment in the restaurant.

The Ambassador is located in the center of everything. We took the Roissybus from Charles DeGaulle Airport for 8 euros. ( A taxi is 60!!)The bus stops a few blocks from the Hotel. The bus runs from 5:45 in the morning till about 7pm.(We also took the bus back for our return flight). A huge savings! By the way, do NOT take taxis. You can walk absolutely everywhere. We did take the Metro to PereLaChaise ( to see Jim Morrison's grave) and the front desk was incredibly helpful in giving directions.

Most of the staff speaks English, too. They were super nice. The hotel was extremely clean. The lobby is lovely! We actually picked up gourmet take out from Galleria Lafayette and had a picnic lunch in the lobby!

I can't wait to return to the Ambassador with my husband, hopefully next year. You will not be disappointed with this hotel!

Fantastic Experience at this hotel!

from dmack
We got a great deal on this hotel and it looked good on the internet but that is never a guarantee of what you will get when you get there. This was an exception, it was better than we expected!

In a nice business, shopping area in the center of Paris the Hotel Ambassador was a French delight. Near the Louvre, 1/2 a block from a metro station, and near dozens of great cafes and restaurants, it was fantastic. The staff was very professional, spoke excellent English and didn't make fun of my bad French. The concierge was extremely helpful in researching, making reservations and planning out our activities.

The room was surprisingly big with a king sized bed. It had a nice marble bathroom, with a separate room for the toilette, a desk, a round table, and two sitting chairs. The TV sat on a mahogany cabinet containing the minibar. There were two large mirrored double door closets, one of which had a hotel embossed umbrella for us to use on our stay.

The large bathroom was made entirely of a white/grey marble, had a shower and full tub with a curious glass door that covered half of the tub but could swing open to allow complete tub access. The bathroom came with 2 white fluffy soft robes and slippers with the hotels logo embroidered on them - nice!

The room had good air conditioning, though i could never get it really cold, which my wife liked, apparently I like it to be very cold in the 68-70 degrees range. The room was always comfortable and refreshing after walking on a warm day.

The room had a nice view that looked out over the street and had double pane windows, and two sets of doors, making for a very, very quiet room. There was a small balcony just big enough for me to enjoy a nice Cohiba cigar at the end of a busy day.

The hotel was in excellent condition, very well maintained, and quite beautiful. The elevators were tiny, and gave it a very a very European feel. The hotel staff was very efficient, kept our room in amazing condition as we can be messy, and there was a turn down service and a quick additional straightening up at about 6 pm. The hotel lobby was beautiful, and had a real French feel you can't get at an a "American" style hotel. I believe the hotel has a four star rating, so we expected it to be nice, but it far exceeded our expectations.

If anyone has any additional questions about the hotel or the area, I would be happy to answer them. I an going to attempt to upload some pictures to go along with this review for additional examples of this fine hotel!

Top Local Tips for Paris

Chartier Restaurant Chartier Restauarant is about 400metres from the hotel and is a bit of a Parisen 'must do'. Get there early if you do not want to queue outside for an hour for a table. It is not the best food you will eat in Paris, but the experience is one that you will take home with you.

Who knew Easter would be so crowded?! We were overwhelmed by enormous crowds throughout Easter weekend. I'd been to Pais in March before and was very surprised by the volume of people. Who knew that so many Europeans travel about over Easter weekend?! The lines everywhere were hours long and we didn't get to do a lot of things we would have liked to do. A couple of hints: at the Louvre, avoid the long ticket lines by going to the automated ticket machines located by the entrance to the hall leading to the shopping and Metro areas. We found it by accident and eliminated about an hour of line standing. Also, get a 'Passport' at one of the major Metro stops (like Invalides) for your Versailles day trip. It gives you your roundtrip train, entrance fee, and audioguide also allowing you to skip the long Versailles lines.

Boulevard Haussmann Recommendation de chosir le cafe Select Haussman pres de l'hotel Concorde pour l'atmosphere parisienne, la tasse du cafe ou du the autour de jour et de chosir La Taverne au Boulevard Italien pres de McDonalds pour le dinner romantique (le prix approx 40 euro pour 2 personnes). La musique vive, le piano, tres bon repas sont les cles du charme de cette place. Le poule est de chosir sans doute :)
