The service and the atmosphere were friendly. Our room was what we were hoping for or - dreaming about. The location was perfect for 14 of July. The breakfast was served with style. I really liked it!

A fabulous hotel. Awesome location close to Champs and Arc de triomphe. Every employee friendly and helpful. The place was decorated beautifully with French style. The room size was large, comfortable with welcoming amenities. The breakfast buffet was elaborate with many selections. The concierge was nice, upfront with costs and suggestions. This was easy to get to by metro. A... More

Stayed here July 4th, 2015. Everything went Ok until when I was checking out early in the morning around 6am. I assume most of the staff was not at work yet and the guy at the reception saw me coming, dragging my bags but he never offered to help. I settled the bill, he handed me my receipt and just...

I booked this hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor. So glad we did! First things first....hotel was clean. That's usually my first concern. We had a red room and what's funny is I was hoping we wouldn't when I booked based on the pictures. It does look better, less dated, and not so overwhelming in person. The location was... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights while on business in Paris. Hotel is located on a quiet side street just off George V, and right around the corner from the Four Seasons.

We stayed here as a couple for four nights in May 2015. We both thought the hotel was excellent and brilliantly located just a few minutes' walk from the Champs Elysees and the George V metro station. We got a good price by shopping around online, and compared to everything else I'd seen it seemed almost too good to be... More

This small hotel off of George V provided a clean and very French appointed room. The people were very helpful and the furnishings in the room were French Provincial. It was also a good value. There is a breakfast but it is not included for every room. I would recommend this hotel.

An exceptionally nice hotel a stone's throw from the Champs Élysées. A minute's walk from George V metro. There are lots of designer shops close by. The location itself is amazing. Rooms comfy and a decent size for Paris. Bed was dreamy. Very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast isn't cheap, but very nice and lots of it. Free wifi... More

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.
