This is a wonderful hotel. The staff are friendly and professional, and the service and cleanliness are at a very high level. The hotel's location is also convenient to the Champs-Élysées and the Seine, and it's a comfortable and welcoming place to return to at the end of a day in the city. This is the Paris hotel of choice... More

A very Romantic atmosphere, nice breakfast, service oriented staff, looks like an old rustic hotel with a modern touch, the rooms are a little bit small, but are really comfortable and fully equipped with all you might need. great service for a...

Before Airbnb was invented, I used to stay nowhere else but here. It's in my old neighborhood, where I feel very comfortable. Public transportation is close by, as are touristy shops and restaurants. But it's the personnel that make the hotel the fine place it is.

Best location, just a block away from Champ-Elysees....Close to Metro and all shopping centers. The hotel is not as big as those franchise hotels, but it is decorated very nice with the French artistic style. The room is clean and interior design is unique... We enjoyed stay in Paris in this hotel and we would come back again!

Had a fantastic time here while attending the COP21 conference. Staff was extremely polite and attended to our every need within minutes. Complimentary water and chocolates in the room was a nice touch as well. Daily breakfast buffet was great as a wide selection was available and all items were fresh and delicious! Room size was adequate by Paris standards... More

This hotel has become my usual place to stay when in Paris. It is small and you feel at home. The decoration is quite heavy but tasteful. The rooms are quite large for Paris standard. Breakfast is very generous. The reception mood varies based on who is sitting at the desk, but you feel a bit like a school student... 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.
