Classy hotel that is nicely furnished with friendly polite staff. Special thanks to the concierge Michel who organised a few things for us. Breakfast was delicious however the prices overall were high. Wifi was not very strong either. Having views of the Eiffel Tower certainly added to the whole experience coupled with the fact Champs Elysee was literally around the... More

Just stayed in Hotel Balzac Paris. The location is fantastic if you want to stay beside the champs élysées without having the noise. We didn't hear a sound. The hotel is very Parisian, nicely decorated. The staff were friendly and helpful. Small dining room for breakfast with nice relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is definitely not worth paying for considering there are... More

It is one block away from the heart of champs elysees and one block away also from the metro and taxi station. The room is super comfy and the staff was amazing! breakfast is not the best and pricy also.

Whilst this hotel was clean, homely and quiet with beautiful period furniture and decor, the breakfast was daylight robbery and should be included in the price of the room. considering this hotel is about £300 per night. What I thought was absolutely terrible was the amount they charged for the in room refreshments which appear to be complimentry. However THEY... More

We were booked into this hotel in late June during what proved to be a perfect time to be in Paris. The booking was done through our very good travel agent, who assured us that the hotel had the kind of charm that we wanted and though it was on the Right Bank (we prefer the left) we would like...

The Balzac is located a few minutes walk from the Arc de Triumph. The hotel is charming ( and modern) in an old building. The rooms are of varying sizes, but are all well equipped. The breakfast buffet is well laid out and with fresh quality food. The staff is professional and very helpful. All in all the Balzac is... More

On the plus side, we managed to get a decent room rate for an hotel in the 8th Arrondissement so close to the Champs Elysee. The location really is excellent and it was super to have quick access to our air-conditioned room on an hot June day. The negatives, however, started at check-in. We sat and waited while the receptionist... More
