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

Hotel located just off Champs Elysees, which is great (Walking distance of 30 seconds). Room was small, but well decorated. Bed was comfortable, wifi was good, and toiletries were very good. The only issue I had for that single night stay, is the aircondition that did not work on cooling, and so the room was quite warm! The room was... More

We spent 3 nights in the Discovery Room at the Cristal Hotel. The location is absolutely fantastic, about 100 meters from Champs Elysees, 200 meters from George V metro and Arc de Triumph just up the street. There are many excellent cafés, restaurants and shops nearby which proved very handy. Normally we stay in branded and large hotels but after... More

The hotel has a really good location close to Champes Elysees, but still quiet. Our room was big and nice. Breakfast should at this price be better. Very few things to choose from. No fresh juice, no fruit etc. The service in the reception were really not good. A lot went wrong and it was very slow

Thank you very much to choosing the Cristal Champs Elysees hotel. We sincerely appreciate your comments. Our hotel was entirely renovated a few years ago, each room had been individually sound proofed and this is why it is so quiet even though we are next to the Champs Elysees. Our breakfast is served buffet style and we offer fresh fruits,... More

The hotel is right off the Champs Élysées so the location is excellent. Unfortunately it's close to a noisy bar and restaurant so best u keep the windows closed. The rooms are modern but tiny even by European standards with no coffee or mini bar and an expensive in room service. Reception was very helpful but not friendly, just polite.... More

Not the best address and the surrounding restaurants were unimpressive. Touristy, dirty streets, aggressive beggars did not help. Rooms are small but ok. Concierge was excellent. Location great if you want to be close to the champs élysées. But no peace and quiet unless you go and sit in your tiny room. Best to go five star in Paris if... 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.
