“Great little Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This was our second stay at Cecilia Hotel in Paris. The location is ideal just a couple of hundred metres from thge Arc de Triomphe and surronded by lots of restaurants and close to tyhe metro and Airport buses. The hotel has 5 floors and serviced by a small lift. We were on the 5th floor and paid extra to have a balcony room overlooking McMahon Ave and the Arc. Breakfast is adequate and the staff are really helpful. The rooms are small like most Paris hotels but very clean, comfotable and the bathroom was well appointed including a bath. The rooms were a bit stuffy and warm at night so we had to use the air conditioner. The Cecilia for the price is great value for Paris Hotels. Without doubt we would stay again at Cecilia.

This is one of those well located Parisian gems - on a great street with lots of good restaurants and several metro stations.
Breakfast was as mentioned before but it was enough for us cereals, cold cuts rolls and pastry with a fresh fruit salad and juices.
The front desk was helpful and you can tell they take pride in working in this family owned hotel which has been in the family since the 1950's.
I would definitely stay here again.

location was just right for us as we had been wanting to visit this particular area for a long time. yes the hotel is small and yes the hotel rooms are even smaller, but this paris get over it! the breakfast in the morning was rather small. but i was told the french dont have much in the mornings. not sure if that is true or not.we did notice a group of americans who seemed quite horrified with the offerings. so all in all it was good, but if you have a big appetite then perhaps you might wish to try one of the western branded hotels such as the hilton etc

This quaint hotel is literally steps from the Arc De Triomphe, which leads to many shops, restaurants and site seeing. Our room was small and felt a little cramped but in Paris you really only sleep in your room! The a/c on the wall was noisy and didn't keep the correct temperature but the room was quiet considering where it was. We had no view, only onto the back of other buildings which was a little disappointing but the staff were friendly and spoke English. Breakfast was included but a little sterile... Maybe some soft music in the back ground to break the silence but there was plenty to choose from all cold items of course, and many close restaurants serving more authentic breakfasts if you wanted to branch out. We would have had drinks at the cute bar before going out for the evening but it wasn't set up and didn't seem inviting so we went out for drinks. The one complaint I really have is the key system, they give you a double locking key for your room and when you are inside your room you have to lock yourself in, not good if there is a fire for a quick escape as the keys were fiddly to use, you could hear everyone trying to unlock their room doors! Very clean and convenient.

Room Tip: ask for room location as court yard view means the back of a building !

I have nothing but good things to say about my five night stay at Cecilia.

We had a view of the Arc de Triomphe from our window , which was especially lovely at night, there were two Metro stops a two minute walk away , a bus stop nearby and the Champs Elysee was a five minute walk from the hotel.

Oh -- the Air France airport shuttle was around the corner -- what more could one ask for?

Added to this an efficient and helpful staff for whom nothing was too difficult to handle, a large room ( for Paris ) and large bathroom ( even more unusual for this great City! ) and we looked forward to returning to our comfortable room at the end of a tiring day.

Breakfast is included in the room price and is quite substantial with good variety and quality. The choice of restaurants and cafes in the area was so-so but I could live with that.

All in all a great choice -- I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Arc de Triomphe.

Our entire experience with this hotel was nothing but outstanding!! We arrived at 8:30 in the morning and they had our room ready for us by 10:00. Even if we did not get our room early, they have a small place to hold bags for you. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. The location...Wow...a block from the Arc de Triomphe and the Metro, walking distance to the Eiffel Tower (about 1 mile), and there are ten or twenty choices for restaurants within blocks of the hotel. Also, the rooms were very nice and clean and an incredible value for the money. After a long day of sightseeing, we were able to come back to the hotel and get a cold beer and wine in the lounge. The breakfast was continental in style but very nice. We will absolutely stay here again when coming to Paris.

Room Tip: All room are equivalent except if you get a room with a rollaway. They are larger and provide a bit...

Footsteps away from Arc d'Triomphe this hotel is a good deal with breakfast included. Room isn't too small like typical European ones. Coffee pot in the room is rewarding after long walks. Ladies at the front desk speak English and are quite friendly and efficient. French decor gives it a special swing

Room Tip: Lower rooms with street view must have double glass, we heard no traffic noise. Don't expect a v...
