We spent 2 nights at this hotel and found the location excellent - walking distance to shopping, attractions & restaurants. The hotel was clean and quiet. Things that need improvement: breakfast was not very good, air conditioner loud and ineffective, no shower curtain.

When travelling in Europe, we always try to stay in small, family-run hotels that are well located, clean and have friendly, helpful staff. Hotel Elysee is all of this and more! The owner, Monsieur Larrivee, who is at the front desk most of the time, is a cheerful man who makes sure his guests are well taken care of. The... More

I stayed here for three nights as a 50+ woman travelling solo. I had a budget room on the top floor which I found to be very quiet and comfortable. The hotel is in a very swanky location - right next to Louis Vuitton and Hermes! The proprietor was friendly and I would definitely stay here again. My room was... More

we read a lot of great reviews about this hotel and pretty much agree with them. We did expect a bit more charm. The hotel is in the city center, which of course is charming, but our room held no decor, just empty walls. We looked over the street but the room has double windows so no street noise. The... More

There was an elevator but it was on the first floor (lobby was on ground floor). I had fallen and hurt my knee and was walking... More

This is a classic, older small European style hotel. The location is excellent, near Bellacour and metro stop. Tiniest elevator one could imagine--fits one person and a suitcase! Elevator ( lift) begins one floor up so this can be hard on anyone with a heavy suitcase! Room is small but adequate-- mostly one double bed and a shower. Fine for... More

It is located in the center, really close to restaurants, shops and atractions, evertything can be reached on foot. Also, close to the metro station Bellecour. The old part of the city is just 10min walk. Clean and quiet. Nice staff. There are some stairs for reaching the lift (in the first floor), but nothing that was a problem for... More
