Staff is very warm, helpful and friendly. I know Paris well having stayed at nearby George V ( Four Seasons ) and Hotel Prince des Galles (Sheraton) a few times in the last 5 years. Hotel Chambiges is on the same block as Plaza Athenee, close enough to pop in for dinner (bistro or Alain Ducasse's Michelin 3 star restaurant) or a drink. Rooms are clean, comfortable and classic. The Canadian Embassy is nearby. I met 2 visiting Canadian politicians over breakfast at the hotel. At 280 euros a night including breakfast, I feel it was good value. The lobby and seating areas are cosy.
