Out of the three places I stayed at while on vacation, Hotel Relais Bosquet was definitely my favorite. It is a small sweet, cozy bouquet hotel that is convenient and located in such a cute area.
5/5 Check-In: After a trained ride and a taxi ride, we were ready to get out of the cold and into our room. As soon as we checked in, it was friendly immediately. He let us know where our room was and confirmed what we had booked, a superior room with the view of the Eiffel Tower.
3.5/5 Hotel and Amenities: There was a breakfast area down stairs, but we didn't have breakfast there because there were so many cafes within a short walking distance that was far cheaper. Plus it was fun to have breakfast in the different cafes. They had two computers downstairs for use, but I had my ipad and free wifi, which was always reliable, so that I didn't need to use their computers.
4/5 Rooms: Since it was freezing (for me being from Texas), I appreciated coming into a room that was warm and bright. We had a superior room which was it was a great size and a very sweet sweet room. The bed was large and the window provided great lighting. It might be that we were on the 6th floor and in a corner room also that was why the lighting was so nice. The bathroom was very nice along with the toiletries which I used and didn't even have to use my own except for shampoo and conditioner. The only complaint I had was that the toilet room was separate, which isn't my complaint, but the fact that it was right the bed that I found awkward.
The mini bar was well stock and had wine glasses along with a wine cork, which was nice because we did pick up some wine while we were there and had it in the room. Actually for the most part, the mini bar prices were very fair.
I loved our room (63)...it was definitely worth it for us to paid for the Eiffel Tower view since it was our first visit to Paris. Next time I would pay for the superior room, but not the view. But if it's your first visit to Paris, go ahead and splurge a bit.
4/5: Staff/Service: Unlike other hotels, we interacted with the front desk more than usual because they ask us to return the room key when leaving the hotel. The rooms’ keys are a bit unique so it’s not easy to replace. It wasn’t a problem and it was nice greeting the front desk anyhow. They were all very nice and cheery.
Housekeeping was also fantastic each day. One day I had a mess going and had requesting no housekeeping but they did anyway. No very happy it, but they did a great job. Don’t forget to tip. It’s not an easy job.
4/5 Overall: I absolutely loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone of my friends and family members. It’s a sweet little hotel in such a wonderful neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay here and know that you will too.

We thank you so much for you nice and detailed review on our hotel.
Making our guests happy is our first and major concern.
You are very right about the room key; some guests think it is a bit strange that you have to leave it at the desk but it is only a safety matter and also as you said wisely that gives us the opportunity to have some words with our guests and so to know that everything is fine. At Relais Bosquet we like to provide a personalized service.
Anyway again we thank you for your visit and your review and will always welcome you back; a lot of our clients are returning guests.
Very best regards
Christian . front desk
