Have stayed here 3 times now, and overall have enjoyed each visit. The rooms are very hit and miss - since my first visit they have been refurbished so the decor and amenities are lovely. However the room sizes and room rates are incredibly variable - understandable I guess for somewhere so very central, right by the Champs Elysee I...

Just two blocks off the Champs Elysee, this is a very attractive hotel with extremely helpful staff (who also speak excellent English). Rooms are very large as are the bathrooms which have updated fixtures. We didn't find anything in need of updating. The nit picks: wifi didn't work for two days. Overall, there were clearly computer problems as the business...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. First of all the finishings are deluxe. But the room was quite small, and only one sink in the bathroom. Although room was small, it was highly ergonomic and an efficient use of space. I had used booking.com and gotten a great rate on what I thought would be a deluxe room (the...

First impressions - the bellboy, Mars, was the most welcoming, sweet and entertaining person I think I've met on holiday yet! He absolutely made the trip for us, always smiling, always ready for a chat. We received a huge discount via an online booking company for last minute deals, and wow, I loved this hotel! In the best spot in...

We recently stayed at the Hotel after having had a wonderful experience in November 2011--NOT THIS TIME!!! In the middle of the night the window above the sleeper sofa in our 500€/night suite leaked. After contacting their customer relations manager they tried to put the blame on us saying that we opened the window. There are too many nice hotels...

Dear Sir, I do apologize for your bad experience in our Hotel. I have checked with my staff from housekeeping to technicians and engineer and after several checks, they all certified that the window remained open during the rainfall. We offered you to relocate you all (3 people) in another Suite but you declined the offer as you wanted to...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel California for 7 nights at the end of April. The hotel has been very well remodeled and updated. Great location right off of the Champs Elysees near the Arc D' Triumph with lots of taxi stands and 2 major metro stations-George V and Franklin D. Roosevelt, are within a couple of blocks...
