Our stay was enjoyable. The room décor and cleanliness was good. There was easy access to the interstate but it was quiet. There were restaurants and places to shop conveniently nearby. Parking space was very adequate and I felt safe walking outside and to and from my room. To improve guest services, I'd suggest adding meat, i.e. sausage, bacon or... More

Good quality hotel and competitively priced for its location and standard. No external noise even with the Windows open at night. Hotel temperature was very high and the AC was poor. Cash went missing from our room during the day. We should have locked the cash away or kept it on our person's so simply reported it and carried on.... More

One of my biggest bug bears with hotels is being sold a room that is supposedly 5 star when they simply do not deliver the facilities or service that is commensurate to the claim. I stayed in the Hotel Balzac for one night on business. This is my second visit at the Balzac. THE SAUNA: For the unsuspecting readers of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights the hotel is located in perfect location a minute from the arc de triumph and the metro. Staff were really nice and helpful and Eiffel Tower is only a 20 min walk. The only downside to this hotel was the poor breakfast options which is made up by the amazing wait staff and the... More

I was truly pampered here. Not only great location - but the staff and services were top class. Very much enjoyed my stay and it was a truly romantic weekend and the hotel was perfect for it. Very cute luxurious interior and friendly and super professional staff.

Because it was my first time in paris I had no idea where to stay, got this hotel because I like the reviews. I realised it was a really good location when I got there.

The best thing about this hotel is the location, literally one minute from the Champs-Elysées and five minutes from the Arc de Triomphe. The rooms are what you would expect in this class of hotel, although a little on the small side. I was very disappointed by the welcome to the hotel, which smacked of the condescending - maybe we...

I knew that this hotel should be good, but it was beyond that! We had the room with the beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower! Totally worth the money.

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.
