“Our favorite hotel in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This was our first stay in the Cecelia Hotel and it is by far the best hotel in Paris that we have stayed in. Lucie, Marie,Stanley and the entire staff are friendly, helpful, and a welcomed pleasure.
The rooms are kept very clean and are a decent size for Paris. The buffet breakfast that is included is good and has a good selection. The location of the hotel is in a very nice
neighborhood and is just around the corner to the Air France bus that goes directly to CDG airprot. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance and Lucie, Marie or
Stanley are happy to make reservations for you.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor away from the street and it was always quiet for a good night's sleep...

I only stayed for one night, but it was enough to be thoroughly impressed by this hotel. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms decent sized and nicely decorated. The desk staff were friendly, helpful and spoke English. And the location....opening the window in the morning and seeing the Arc de Triomphe...

I'm not sure what people are expecting sometimes when they review hotels. No this is not the Ritz, nor is it a destination hotel so if that is what you are expecting you are at the wrong place.

If you are looking for a very clean hotel, in one of the best locations in Paris, at a very reasonable price (by Paris standards), with very helpful staff, close to attractions, museums, shopping, great restaurants, and places where the locals hang out and eat, then this is the place for you. The rooms might be small by American standards, but are not by European standards. The breakfast was more than adequate and when we asked for directions, dinner recommendations, or for anything, the staff was more than helpful.

Next time I am Paris, I will save all of the effort of trying to find a hotel by just booking this again. We stayed here for 5 days, and it met all of our expectations and then some.

Room Tip: Obviously if you can get one at the front where you can look our of your window and see the Arc de T...

Perfect location and close to the Metro, helpful friendly staff, wonderful breakfast! Nice bar and sitting area in the lobby where we would make plans for the day. The beds were comfortable. The room size was small, but the bathroom was large. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location next to Arc de Triomphe which I could see from my little balcony. No noise. Champs Elysee a short walk away allowing a fantastic walk to so many landmarks.Several entries to the Metro on the corners. Comfortable room with very large bathroom. Excellent breakfasts, fresh fruit every morning. Reception staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and were very polite at my efforts at schoolgirl French (from 45 years ago.). Lollies at the reception desk a nice touch. During my stay another Australian seemed to have a problem and it appeared the staff were trying to assist. Coincidentally she was checking out when I did and I heard her say that she was disappointed that the hotel had not helped more, however I was waiting at the reception area for some time and it appeared they were trying to assist her.I do not know the details.
The lounge area and breakfast room is as appears in the photos, very quaint. Lots of cafes in the area and I enjoyed coffees and snacks in "The Beer Station" a few steps away. .Internet wasn't working during my stay.I will definitely book in there again my next visit. Au revoir Cecilia, thanks for a fun stay.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth paying for the Arc de Triomphe view, such a nice moment to stand on the litt...

I stayed at Cecillia with my partner for my Birthday long weekend and I wasn't disappointed ! Its a lovely Boutique hotel and we loved the location -right near the Arc de triomphe,Champs-Élysées, and metro station.We had a room facing the courtyard and it was nice and quiet although the room was small it was clean and comfortable. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and spoke great English. Breakfast was more than satisfying with a large selection of pastries, cereals,fruit and hams and cheeses.There is a 24 hour bar although during our stay we never saw anyone drinking at night.I would highly recommend this hotel !
