We loved our suite at Hotal Balzac and the staff was exceedingly pleasant to us. Unfortunately, we were there during the major heat wave and apparently the AC doesn't work during extreme temperatures. We sweat to death, day and night. A shower was a very temporary solution. They brought us a fan but that didn't help much either and sleeping... More

My first visit to Paris had to be in luxury (if only for a few nights). This hotel is tucked up behind Champs Elysse and is mere steps to the Arc de Triomphe and Metro George V. Tiny (compared to other countries but normal for Paris) rooms with decadent chintz furnishings, luxurious bedding and a delicious bathroom. I was most... More

Great location with the hotel being a 2 minute walk from Champs-Élysées, hop on, hop off buses and general transport. The rooms were lovely, comfortable beds, tall verandah doors out to Parisian scenes and to our surprise, the top of the Eiffel Tower. Staff were very friendly, particularly the concierge team and Michel, who provided some excellent guide and restaurant... More

We stayed here for the second time on our annual trip to the French Open at Roland Garros. It has a fantastic classic Parisian feel about the hotel; with its small size it is full of character with lovely furnishings inside the reception and bedrooms. The location of the hotel could not be better - it is basically on the... More

I just booked for three nights in their Junior Suite and after staying two nights I would rather waste 700Usd than stay another night here. Not only are the staff here rude and arrogant in attitude they are also very unhelpful. The cons definitely outweighs the pros in this hotel and I truly regret changing my booking from Saint James...

We had a wonderful stay here. The people were very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was small but completely lovely. Nothing was lacking. Even though the hotel is only one block off the Champs, it was a quiet street.

Champs-Elysees
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.
