“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Everything about this hotel is great - location, service, room, it was a pleasure. It is ideally located close to great shops, bars and cafes. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will return ourselves.

The hotel is located within the tourist location and a minutes’ walk away from champ Elysees and a metro center within easy reach.

The rooms (or at least the one I got) are really tiny and you almost step out of your bed into the wardrobe. Rooms were fairly clean with a tea/coffee facility provided. The concierge, Mr. Joseph was very helpful and willing to direct visitors. Front desk staff too was friendly and useful.

Given the proximity to Major destinations this is a place I would consider staying in again, hopefully in a bigger room.

We are delighted that our professionnal staff, especially Joseph, and our facilities have been able to make your stay most enjoyable.
Nevertheless we regret that the room size did not correspond to your expectations.

The hotel is in a good location, but beware--not all the rooms are updated. We were unfortunately in a room that had not been touched since the 1980's--old carpet, chipped and dated furniture and overall shabby decor. Given the price per night, we expected much more. We stayed at a few different hotels throughout Paris on our trip and the service and decor at the other hotels far outweighed this hotel at a lesser price. We brought our concerns to the attention of the desk manager who offered us a free water or house wine at the bar--told the bartender our two glasses of champagne could not be comped. Certainly did not improve our impression. One positive--very nice bedding. Save your money and stay elsewhere.

Dear customer

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment on your recent stay at the Hotel California.
We deeply regret that our accommodations were not able to meet your expectations.
Let us reassure you that most of our rooms have been refurbished in a contemporary style, you probably stayed in one of our last rooms being refurbished.
We hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back and reverse your impressions.

Best regards.

The hotel is perfectly located and I would stay here again.
The rooms were clean and very nice and quite big for Paris!
The breakfast menue was local, but very tasty!
I was here on business and was charged a company rate, when I looked at the usual costs, I would nit have thought that the stay was value for money!

A very pleasant stay. It is worth the money, as you get a five star experience and service. Breakfast is rather expensive, but there is a lot of variety, and you can eat enough that you won't need lunch. We even took fruit from the fruit bowl to have during the day. The staff are incredibly helpful, and the bar is lovely-none of the other hotels we stayed in had bars that you would consider going to, but this one had a lovely atmosphere, with a pianist playing on some nights, and if you are exhausted from a day of sight seeing, its a very nice place to go for a glass of wine (and complementary top ups from the very lovely bartender) and a fillet steak dinner, which in comparison to the price of breakfast, is incredibly reasonable. The bath and shower in our room was very nice, and the beds very comfortable. It is a very quick walk to the George V metro station, and the arch du triumph end of the champs elysees. A tip for using the metro- the cheapest option is buying the book of 10 tickets at a time.

Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip.
The location is fantastic. A quite street just off Champs Elysees.
Room size is spacious for a Paris hotel.
Decore and food were fine.
Even get free internet in the room (although limited bandwidth. hi bandwidth comes with a cost).
The gym is clean but a bit small with a small selection of equipment. On the other hand, you can jog in the streets of Paris which is a much more attractive option.
