The room was very clean and recently refurbished. It is very close to Champs Elyseés, so superb location. Unfortunately some people next door seemed to have a party in the last 2 nights and they were heavily smoking as well. I think the Hotel management should be more strict on this respect. It was really dissappointing. What a shame, it... More

Imagine staying virtually at Champs Elysees and yet just that bit further to avoid all the noise ! My extended family and I travelled as a group of 8 in end June. The hotel staff is extremely courteous and helpful. They're also very knowledgable, for example while we were setting out to use the very touristy hop-on and hop-off bus,... More

I stayed here whilst on a business trip, and was greeted on arrival by a friendly doorman wanting to carry my case, followed by very customer focussed reception staff. The check in was slower than I would have expected, but very thorough and efficient. The room standard is very good. Clean, equipped with everything you could require. Tea making facilities,...

I don't have any place to compare this to since this was picked for us when we met my husband's parents in Paris. But they had stayed at this place the spring before and liked the location and liked the hotel. To me it looked like a nice European style hotel. It's older. And the rooms were clean. But this...

I would agree with previous reviews this is not a 4 star hotel in its current state, it is badly in need of a refurb (green carpet on the wall in my room was not a great look!).

Good location. Small rooms but clean. Breakfast was ok. Overall it was fine for the 3 nights in Paris. Staff was adequate but did recommend a great restaurant that we loved. Le bistro Henri a great place to eat. Typical European shower/tub so water sprayed all over the place

The hotel located only 2 minute walk from Champs-Élysées street and very easy access to hotel by public transportation services. Metro is 10 Minutes away from the hotel. Rooms are very clean, staff is friendly. its quiet during night you can have good rest although my room facing the street. Break fast was good. highly recommended.

I liked this hotel, very lovely stuff, clean rooms, high level and access able place. Breakfast is rich and tasty. The bad thing was (my deposed 200 Euro not coming back) 😒. Parking in front of the hotel was so high. Any way it will be my choice again.
