“Always an Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Clarisse Thiry and her staff have taken the California to a new level. We stay here often and the staff from Catherine down to Mamadu and Kexi at the Front Desk are professional, courteous and attentive. The bar, now being run by Remy, is a wonderful place to end your day. The intention of this hotel is to make it a second home for busy travelers, and they have truly succeeded! It's not often that your bartender knows exactly what you drink from the last time you stayed! The new renovation has transformed the California in to a sophisticated yet comfortable hotel. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and quite efficient. And, of course, location, location, location. I would highly recommend a stay here.

Taxi booked and appeared but we were never told.... then another taxi not booked on time and we nearly missed the Eurostar! Staff is broadly incompetent and definitely not of the quality of what we could expect from a 4 starts hotel. French is badly / poorly spoken too... not the best image of France to say the least.

Hotel is 1) Front office Staff Mr. Mamadu and Ms Kexy are extremely good, friendly, helpful, knowledgable and always willing to help and assist you, try to make you feel at home. I am honored have time to meet Ms.Catherine the Guest Relations Manager, who is a fine Lady and Professional in making the Guest happy and thanks for upgrading my daughter's room from Family type to Suite room. My 3 grandchildren are very excited. Thank you Catherine, Mamadu and Kexy. Last but not least are the Consierge Mr Dawood, Mr Patrick, they always greet you with smiles and delivered your luggages expediently. These are the Staff that make my stay comfortable as stay at my home, so I am absolutely will stay at Hotel California for my next trip to Paris and definitely will recommend this hotel to my other families and friends.

We were a family of 8 that stayed at the Hotel Caifornia for 4 nights and occupied 4 rooms. The location is excellent as well as the service. Each and every staff member went out of his or her way to accomadate our needs. The breakfast was plentiful and they were even nice enough to pack a breakfast for us when we went on our Normandy tour at 7/am. Everything was perfect and we would all stay there again.

Room Tip: My niece with 2 daughters had a suite and was 2 rooms. Plenty for the family.

The Hotel was very accomodating and had allowed us an early checkin at 11 am instead of the usual 3 pm.

The room was clean. Breakfast layout was good.

We had to check out very early at 6 am and the person manning the reception personally served us juice and coffe at our room probably because the regular staff was not in as yet.

They refused to serve stale croissants as fresh ones would be delivered after 6 am

Overall ZERO complaints. Will stay there if go again to Paris

Room Tip: Higher floors would be better. Maybe ask for one facing central courtyard.
