We chose to wrap up our 2 week vacation in France with a stay at the Hotel Balzac. The hotel was everything I had hoped for. The staff was accommodating and professional. The room was exactly as pictured, I especially loved the bathroom with the heated toilet seat and electronic bidet. The location could not be beat, just one block... More

The Hotel Balzac is the quintessential boutique Parisian hotel. For the number of rooms, there is a very large staff, all of whom are highly professional, polite, and eager to help.

This hotel is a difficult one to review- I want to be fair. The issue is that there are some wonderful things about it but then other elements that ruined the overall impression.

Last summer I stayed at the Balzac, great location right next to the Champs Elysees an area bustling with life and attractions. The hotel staff are warm and welcoming.

Fantastic hotel, perfect location not far front Arc Du Triumph, just off the Champ Elysee. Hotel has nice entrance, lovely rooms, ours was looking into the courtyard rather than the street which we would have preferred. My fiance especially liked the 'princess bed', the only negative would be the toilet in bathroom could do with being replaced! Other than that... More

We have stayed at Hotel Balzac on numerous occasions over the past 20 years. The service and attention to detail are always first class, and the rooms are extremely nice. The front desk and especially the concierge were most helpful in arranging car services and 3-star restaurant reservations. We plan to stay there again on our next trip to Paris.

My son and I had a great stay for one night during the EM 2016. The staff was very niche and helpful. Room was clean and breakfast was very good. 100 m from the Chaps Èlysèes but a very quiet street. Good restaurants all around.
