If you are looking for classic french decor in an hotel with impeccable service, this hotel will suit you wonderfully! The rooms are beautifully decorated with period artwork and it is almost a step back in time. The hotel is also in close proximity of all the great sites of paris. I made it by car to the Eiffel Tower... More

This is undeniably a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. Some of the staff also try very hard to meet your needs but still you are left feeling not quite satisfied. For a higher priced establishment little things seem to not quite meet expectations. Our first room had aircon that did not work, but fortunately we were able to move... More

Hotel Blazac is a beautiful quaint little hotel right off of Rue de Champs Élysées which makes getting around Paris extremely easy. It's a great spot for first timers who want to experience the hype of the Main Street with all the people and shops. The only downside is you're in the most touristy area of the city. Neither bad...

Checked in to two double rooms with my husband & children. The room air conditioning wasn't working and despite several complaints the front desk couldn't resolve the issue for two days. There was also no response from the hotel manager. The front desk was manned by two trainees who have no authority to even give us a room change! Sorely... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August 2015. We were expecting a 5 star experience, but arriving there we found the service average at best and whilst the hotel advertise itself as a luxury 5 star hotel this is a misrepresentation - I would rate it as 3 to 4 stars: small rooms, not...

We arrived at the hotel at 8AM with 3 large luggages, there was no porter to help us carry our luggages up the stairs infront of the hotel.

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.
