“A warm welcome and wonderful place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A friend of mine and I traveled to Paris for an excursion from England. Once we arrived we were greeted by the most friendly staff who went out of their way to make some phone calls to a restaurant that we could not contact. They succeeded and off we went to explore Paris. The location right off the Champs Elysees was perfect. The metro line was very convenient to many of the areas we wanted to see. The room was very nicely appointed and comfortable. I had stayed at the hotel 33 years ago on my honeymoon and remember it as being a nice place then. It has since been renovated and is lovely. We used the bar area/lobby to relax after a long day of sightseeing. It will be the place I return to again and again, I hope. For the best Thai restaurant in Paris, I recommend Siamin, just a 10 minute walk from the hotel off of the Champs Elysees

Just perfect location, near to everything, staff was really great, very kind and helpful, breakfast was very good, we stayed 12 days and never noticed any negative thing. The prices maybe a bit high, but it proves the value.

I really loved this place! The staff went to great effort for us. It was clean and affordable too.The location is the best thing about it! Close to underground and other major tourist spots.

The top floor has nice views. Rooms are clean and well decorated in true Parisian style. Just don't kill the power to the room when you leave or else you will have cold water!

We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, there are nice alternatives in walking distance. The pub is great to unwind or have a business meeting.

Take advantage of specials on room rates. we got 4 for 3 nights.

We'll def go there again.

A nice cozy hotel right in the centre of Paris. The rooms are really big and nice for Paris. It is right off champs-élysées. Look is a bit aged but this cretes a very nice atmosphere. Clearly recommended!

Hotel is conveniently located next to a Metro (5 mins walk) and various Paris attractions. Hotel's reception area and rooms appear fresh and welcoming. Staff were very pleasant, accommodating and attentive. Food at the bar/lounge could benefit from a larger menu. Breakfast was very standard but acceptable. Would revisit for business - for the location and price.

Hotel is very well located just a couple of blocks from the Champs Elysees avenue and just 2 blocks from the metro. Gest Service staff was friendly and helful . Rooms were small, but very clean and comfortable. One disappointment was the service at the bar/restaurant . Very slow , without mentioning the onion soup I ordered . It has been the worst onion soup I have tasted in the world (this is an unforgivable point being in France) .
Despite that, I would stay in the California again.
