I recently had the most unexpected, but most wonderful experience at Hotel Balzac - conveniently located off the Champs Elysees. The staff and concierge are friendly, helpful and made my frenzied stay enjoyable. The rooms are decorated in 19th century French decor and my room was romantic and elegant. As a seasoned event planner and producer of luxury travel experiences... More

This was a very special treat for our 10th wedding anniversary. Just 20 metres off the champs élysées this is ideally located for a weekend away. Metro George V is 3 mins walk away and the 3 Michelin starred restaurant Pierre Gagnaire, which is part of the hotel was amazing and we got to go into the kitchen and meet... More

Hotel Balzac is a decent hotel but ornate decorations do not make up for the below average facilities. For the good, the hotel is clean, charming, great location, and breakfast was very good. The room was very small like a New York hotel room. The decorations are very ornate which is pretty and a nice touch for Paris, but not... More

My mother and I were visiting Paris for the first time ever. I had spent months looking for a beautiful boutique hotel that was close to everything and finally found Hotel Balzac. The attentiveness of the staff from my first email to our warm welcome when we finally arrived was just the beginning. Our room was wonderful with an unforgettable... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. We chose the Hotel Balzac for our Ruby Wedding return to our honeymoon city for its close proximity to the main attractions in Paris. The welcome was warm & after 24 hours the gluten free breakfast requested on arrival was made available to my wife. As a previous review commented, the TV... More

The Hotel Balzac is the only place that I stay in Paris. I visit Paris on business and pleasure four or five times per year and am always welcomed into the Balzac. The concierges are outstanding and take care of dinner reservations in advance of my arrival and generally attend to any of issues during my stay---Patrick, Denis and Michel.... More

firstly, as this was our first trip to Paris we wanted to stay somewhere central and with great service. Our Junior Suite was amazing and cannot be faulted. From the decor to the space. Great bathroom. Disappointing tv channels. When we checked in, the reception staff were courteous and friendly and advised us our room was nearly ready and would... More

We had an amazing few days at this beautiful hotel located a few steps from the Champs Elysees nr the Arc de Triomphe. We had booked a junior suite and on arrival were told we had been upgraded to a Presidents Suite room 603 which was like an amazing private apartment. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

stayed there last week for 3 nights in a 5th floor room. Cant fault anything.,. excellent service. The staff were always helpful. the Concierge who took time to draw around on the map every day so that we can make the most of our limited time deserves a mention. .

Disappointing - rude man at check in left me waiting for 5 mins while he showed a (cash paying) previous guest to him room and collect his tip while porters stood idle - unquestionably the worst club sandwich ever from room service ... pre-prepared and served straight from the fridge - no mobile reception in my room ... had to...
