They rushed to take our bags, always greeted us, and the concierge helped me with a couple of important matters which I really appreciated. The Bad: -As...

Shower needs to be redone, especially since the doors do not close properly, which results in a lot of water going out... Also, the "American breakfast" price is outrageous for what you get,...

My husband and I have spent 3 nights at Balzac Hotel last November; we loved the location and the staff were so kind, however our room was small, and there was no coffee machine; other than that; everything was great! We would do it again of course but we'll bring our coffee machine this time :)

This was our fourth visit to Hotel Balzac. We were kindly received by Agatha at reception and Frederic who brought up our luggage. The concierge desk was helpful in finding places to eat. Our room was spectacular with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. We loved how the hotel is not right on the Champs d'elise but one block...
