The positives - cool name, handy location, quiet at night. The breakfast was ok and the coffee terrible just like the rest of Paris. House keeping was patchy - often no soap and no cups for morning tea. Wifi a joke. The area is perfect for me, wander down rue d'artois and drink at tontons for glass champagne e9. Marloe... More

We enjoyed another return visit to the California, this time for four nights. The hotel is well located - on the rue de Berri - between the N end of the Champs Elysées and the Faubourg St Honoré - and is thus an excellent location for those focussed on the city's hi-end restaurants and stores. And it’s also close to... More

Although the hotel ticks a number of boxes: large rooms, decent price level, very clean room and bathroom (cleanest I ever saw in France, regardless of price) great location I will not be coming back. The reason is that the staff really does not make you feel welcome if you don't correspond to some kind of stereotype they think their... More

Staff were very helpful. Big smiles, fervent greetings, caring attitude - our family was charmed during the 3-night stay before we left for London. The room and bathroom were spacious by European standards. The electric heater in the bathroom worked fantastic during the cold winter. Conveniently located in the luxury shopping district and only a brisk walk away from the... More

I stayed at the hotel back in November with my parents and had to stop by Paris last week for a 2-day business trip. So I decided to repeat the experience and was pleased I did. I think I am hooked on this hotel for a number of reasons; the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the location is unbeatable,... More

I have stayed here for many years and it has always been a great home away from home. The hotel is very conveniently located and a few steps from the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triumph. Rooms are comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Stayed in February 2015 in a deluxe room. The room was excellent, of a fair size with good facilities. The price was good value by Paris standards, and the location cannot be faulted, only 100m from the upper end of the Champs Elysees. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful with any request we had, and I couldn't fault them. I... More

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.
