“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

I really loved this place! The staff went to great effort for us. It was clean and affordable too.The location is the best thing about it! Close to underground and other major tourist spots.

The top floor has nice views. Rooms are clean and well decorated in true Parisian style. Just don't kill the power to the room when you leave or else you will have cold water!

We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, there are nice alternatives in walking distance. The pub is great to unwind or have a business meeting.

Take advantage of specials on room rates. we got 4 for 3 nights.

We'll def go there again.

A nice cozy hotel right in the centre of Paris. The rooms are really big and nice for Paris. It is right off champs-élysées. Look is a bit aged but this cretes a very nice atmosphere. Clearly recommended!

Hotel is conveniently located next to a Metro (5 mins walk) and various Paris attractions. Hotel's reception area and rooms appear fresh and welcoming. Staff were very pleasant, accommodating and attentive. Food at the bar/lounge could benefit from a larger menu. Breakfast was very standard but acceptable. Would revisit for business - for the location and price.

My second time in Paris and the location of the hotel was very convenient and the service in the hotel was exceptional. I Would definitely stay here again. Room service was very prompt and the breakfast had a great variety.

Hotel is very well located just a couple of blocks from the Champs Elysees avenue and just 2 blocks from the metro. Gest Service staff was friendly and helful . Rooms were small, but very clean and comfortable. One disappointment was the service at the bar/restaurant . Very slow , without mentioning the onion soup I ordered . It has been the worst onion soup I have tasted in the world (this is an unforgivable point being in France) .
Despite that, I would stay in the California again.

Strategically located just a couple of blocks from the Pantheon; several blocks from the Notre Dame and just 2 blocks from the metro. Excellent Guest Service staff. Nicely appointed lobby. Rooms were small, compact, yet very clean and comfortable. One disappointment was breakfast was an extra 12 euros. I know other hotels include this in their pricing. Despite that, I would stay here again.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience in Paris ! We are delighted that you had an enjoyable stay but it seems that your kind comments are concerning the Hotel California St Germain, not the Hotel California Champs-Elysées.
On your next stop in Paris, please do not hesitate to visit us.

We had a fantastic time at this hotel - it was great for a quick trip to Paris, since it's in a central location and close to several metro stations. The service was not great (very slow), but the rooms are very comfortable (though small) and the washrooms are lovely. My in-laws stayed here too and loved it. Enjoy!
