We only arrived last night from Paris and I already wish we could stay few days longer. The hotel was so easy to find, it was only 5min walk from Charles de Gaulle Etoille metro, street off Champ Elysee. This amazing boutique hotel has got around 70rooms but makes you feel there are only few rooms as it has got... More

Booked a suite which was roomy, clean and reminiscence to a renaissance Paris. Warm yet professional welcome. Concierge helpful and just be precise of what you want. Room service was perfect. Can't fault the service, hotel nor location. You do need to appreciate the decor and if you are looking for minimalist, perhaps not quite your cup of tea but... More

On arrival under stated check in desk, I thought it was concierge desk, minimalistic. Hotel was clean. Bar area appeared small, choose not to drink there. Room was small but well appointed, with a view of building opposite. Breakfast was included in the price but did not eat. Reasonably expensive stay but good location.

Stayed here for just one night but had a great experience. The hotel is beautifully decorated in a renaissance atmosphere, perfect for Paris in my opinion. The service and staff was great, check in was smooth and quick and everyone helpful and friendly. We stayed in a superior room and were very pleased. The room was beautifully decorated with a...

We stayed here for three days in May. The location cant be beat, just steps from the Champs-Elysees and the view of the Eiffel Tower was incredible. At night we would lay in bed and watch it light up right through our window. What an experience! Check-in and check-out was very smooth and courteous, perhaps a bit cold. We didnt... More

We stayed at this hotel for the week-end and absolutely adored it. Fantastic service, pristine rooms, tasteful décor and amazing cuisine. We found the personnel very courteous and were very well looked after. The check in/check out process is super speedy and everything about this hotel is chic, classy and cosy at the same time.

Stayed for a week and was very disappointed. The breakfast was very poor-got served frozen (boiled the day or two before) eggs. This was the most weird breakfast I have ever had. The bottled water in the room was extremely expensive. The sink was jammed and the shower had no pressure - got showered with just water drops. The staff... More

Dear MishoPeicho, After reading your comment you posted on TripAdvisor, it will be difficult to me to express by writing how frustrated and distressed I feel about the bad experience you had with us during your stay.

Our second time to stay here. Just like last time 2 1/2 years ago our stay was very nice! Paris is a wonderful place to visit and to be able to stay close to the action without having to pay too much, Balzac is perfect! Staff is attentive and friendly.

Best Value for money if you like to stay in the heart of Paris, just few foot steps from the most famous street in Europe. Easy access to public ground and underground transportation, restaurants, high fashion shops.

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
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.
