Great location.

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Wonderful views from the terrace
Cons: It needs areas with a more intimate /cosy atmosphere
Location: Good shops, but mega expensive. Nice eateries in the nearby square for breakfast.
No bar or lounge here to relax with friends. Difficult to find a waiter to bring a glass of wine. Food ok but overpriced.

Great hotel in fantastic location

Posted May 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Pavilion Henri IV. The hotel is in a fantastic location with a superb view of the western suburbs of Paris onto La Defense and beyond. Although the room was rather small it was attractive and comfortable, food was excellent and I felt very comfortable throughout my stay. Would certainly stay there again.

Very old fashioned, doors do not close properly

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: The view on Paris from the restaurant
Cons: More or less everything.
Location: The hotel is located in a beautiful area and the sight in incredible. A lot of nice visits to be done: the pak, the castle ...
Waiting 10 minutes to have a drink, retaurant is fine, beautiful view on Paris. Very disappointing rooms. Old fashioned, Bathromm OK although the towels heater was not working. Needs a serious renovation. Staff more or less OK. The barman does not know anything about whisky. Cannot make the difference between a scotch, a single malt, a bourbon. Very disappointing for the price: 235 Euros!!

A Prestigious Property Badly in Need of Attention

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: The historic significance of this property keeps us coming back.
Cons: Management and staffing. Corporate and events get the attention at this property.
Location: Site is both historic and beautiful. Location near train station to Paris is very close. Shopping near by.
Our travels take us to Saint-Germaine-En-Laye frequently and we have stayed at this property many times. Observations on this hotel in the past two years: management is seriously lacking; there is absolutely no sense that anyone cares if you are happy with your stay and when one points out failings, there is something close to indifference. Be extremely critical if you are given a substandard room. Our recent trip, after 15 years of loyalty, garnered us a room so small that we had to coordinate movements in the room (ie. if you stay on the bed, I can get by to go to the bathroom!) . Too tired to complain or relocate, we suffered through a single night in a room barely large enough for one, let alone a couple. We keep our fingers crossed that a better management team will be put in place one day and restore this historic property to the state in which it deserves to be kept and managed! Site is both historic and beautiful. Location near train station to Paris is very close. Shopping near by.

Super location but expensive

Posted Sep 26, 2013
Pros: Appearance, history, location
Cons: Better description of room size; staff asking guests to have consideration for other guests after midnight
Location: Close to lots of Chateaux including Versailles, 6 miles from Maisons-Laffitte racecourse, St Germaine-en-Laye a really nice town with good restaurants
This hotel looks magnificent from afar but needs a lick of paint on the windows, which look as if they haven't been painted for years. Staff were fine and the room and bathroom were maintained very well. Our main disappointment was the size of the room - very small considering the price we paid. Other grouses were noise late at night on the Friday and Saturday from carousing wedding guests in the car park, which our room overlooked; and the small bed (advertised as queen size but the smallest double bed we've ever slept in)

Fantastic view. Rooms are big and bathrooms have been done up recently; rooms could probably be done up at some point. Service ok but not many smiles-rather plain.

Will definitely come back

First class food and restaurant with a view to die for. Very classy; a little pricey though...

The hotel is wonderful, the view of Paris is great, the surrounding neighborhood is pretty and restaurants are a very convenient and short walk away. The only potential problem is that it is far from the center of Paris, about 30 minutes by metro. But the redeeming feature is that this makes it a lot less expensive than other hotels in Paris, and the metro is about five minute walk. So very much worth it. The rooms are very large and comfortable, as are the bathrooms. Definitely, a great choice for business or (especially) pleasure.

Lots of character

Posted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: Good restaurant.
Cons: Needs a gymnasium.
Location: Great location next to the huge park, and 5 minute walk from the town centre.
Convenient for Paris on the train, but about 5 miles outside the city. St Germain en Laye is a very attractive and clean town, and everything is a short walk from the hotel.
