We stayed here for a night in March and it's just in the perfect location- literally metres from the Champs Elysees and the nearest Metro station. The hotel is lovely and clean with very helpful members of staff. Our room was very nice, perhaps a little small but it has everything you need and it all felt very new too.... More

It is a perfect place to stay in Paris. I've been many times in Paris and this hotel was the best I've stayed in. Of, course, it is expensive but it is Paris center. Very nice design, clean and comfortable. adorable stuff! Helpfull and friendly. We came earlier than check in time and this lady at the reception tried to... More

We stayed at the hotel in February 2015 and the location is amazing. Right by Les champs Élyses where stores are open on sundays. The hotel was very cozy and welcoming, the service was great and we had a silent and calm room facing the courtyard so no outside noise. Rooms are small but it is worth the price. Breakfast... More

Stayed at end of November 14 with 5 other girlfriends. Very reasonably priced & location couldn't be better. A stones throw from George V metro. Rooms quite small, very funky but functional and adequate. Didn't have breakfast but the Washington Post bar 4 doors down did a fantastic continental or English style breakfast very reasonable (and the evening cocktails weren't... More

Pretty , small & very convenient hotel. The rooms like many other hotels in Paris is small. We booked two rooms for the four of us. The colour code of the rooms were warm & cozy. It was so close to the George V, Metro station. Arc d'triumph is only a stones throw away. Within a minutes walk is Elysee... More

Although the Rooms were very small this hotel is very centrally located on the champs elysee .... Hotel receptionists we're extremely helpful with directions to eat and best way to get to all attractions... Unfortunately the lack of hot drink making facilities let down the over all enjoyment of the room ... But it was certainly value for money just... More

Location is ok, just a few hundred metres from the Champs Elysées and the George V metro station. The Cristal is a boutique hotel, completely filled with very colorful design along the "crystal" theme, lots of mirrors for instance. One could call it gaudy, another one might call it garish. I was given room 11, a junior suite, a nice... More

Dear Mr. Virchow, We are extremely sorry for what happened. Actually, this is unacceptable. I have had a very frank exchange with the owner of the restaurant next door. He promised that this will never, ever happen again. Still, I feel that you have been treated unfairly and we, at the Cristal Champs Elysees, are responsible for that. Please contact... More

A little boutique hotel just off the Champs Élysées. Rooms quite small but perfect for Central Paris. Location couldn't have been better. Rooms at the back of the hotel are much quieter than those in the front.

Whilst the hotel is ideally located (near the Champs Elysees) and generally clean / modern. Unfortunately I was awoken by the smell of cigarettes which seemed to be coming from the toilet air system... some other residents enjoying a 2am cigarette which worked its way through the hotel air ducts! Ended up sleeping with the windows open and still the... More

Neighborhood Profile
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
