.Trolled through the internet to find a Hotel within a easy walk of the Champs Elysees. Looked at the Hotel California and the pictures were very good. Did not book but phoned them as both my wife and myself and two children were going and we needed two rooms one with twin beds. They suggested a Junior Suite which comprised... More

This is a very nice hotel tucked back a few blocks off of the Champs-Elysees, so it is a great location if you want to stay near all the action. We were here for three nights. The rooms are actually very spacious for Paris standards, super quiet, and very nicely decorated and comfortable. Contrary to some of the other reviewers,... More

Very centrally located hotel just 2 minutes from Champs-Elysees. An older hotel with quiet and nicely refurbished rooms that are practical and modern. Good breakfast and lunch – more options than for a traditional French breakfast. The gym is a bit small (size of 2 hotel rooms) but the location is making up for it as you can go for... More

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. The location is amazing - just a quick one-two minute walk from the center of the action on the Champs Elysees. The room was perfect - beautifully decorated, decent size, clean, comfortable bed, modern bathroom, free wifi. The staff at the hotel went above and beyond to be polite and helpful. This... More

The hotel is in a good position, just 100 yards from the Champs Elysees. The lobby area, lounge bar and restaurant are smart and staff were helpful and generally efficient. Food in the lounge bar was good and good value. Unfortunately the breakfast was disappointing. Choice was poor, both of cooked and cold items and it was expensive - in... More
