“Convenient location, Congenial staff, Affordable price”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our family booked 4 rooms at this very welcoming hotel, conveniently located near the Arc de Triomphe metro station (2 mins walk) and Air France shuttle bus stop which provides transfers to/from the airport CDG (half block away). We had 2 rooms facing rue McMahon, which have balcony views of the Arc, and 2 rooms facing the inner courtyard. Rooms were adequately furnished with 2 beds each, and bathrooms were clean. It was very comfortable, and a good use of limited space (as is normal in large expensive cities). Continental breakfast was sufficient to start our days, which always began with a very helpful front desk (Ms. Vivian? I think was her name). She made our stay memorable with her cheerful and sincere attitude, always happy to answer questions about travel options, directions, and finally booking taxis when it was time to leave. We would certainly stay at Hotel Cecilia again!

Room Tip: Our rooms facing rue MacMahon had balconies with views of the Arc - lovely day and night!

Excellent location in an “antique” building on a “quiet” street so you can sleep with an open window without nasty noise, on the other hand, it is located next to the underground station (e. g. from which you can directly get to Disney Land) but I would strongly recommend you to walk as all key Paris attractions are not that far. Personnel speak English and very friendly, rooms are pretty large (not tiny at all as I initially expected) with the bath, free high-speed WiFi and tiny balcony from where you can see Arc de Triomphe. Regarding breakfast, I would say it is fine (cheese, croissants, cornflakes, jams are all there), just enough to be energized for the upcoming day but if you expect more than “normal” breakfast in France you might be frustrated. To sum up: value for money? – Definitely Yes

Room Tip: I would recommend the one with the street view as there is a tiny balcony from which you could see t...

Cecilia is located close to Arc de Triomph, with the Metro really close by. The Air France transfer bus to/from CDG and Orly stops on the same street, a cheap alternative to taking a taxi.

The hotel breathes "France", but the staff all speak English, and they are very service minded. Some rooms were a little bit small, but not more so than expected. Beds were a little bit hard, and a bit too short for my husband, who is over 190cm.

Breakfast was good, but not with a great selection. There are really great restaurants just around the corner, make sure to check them out.

All in all, a really great hotel to a reasonable price.

Hotel is located in a wonderful area. Room was small but clean with a wonderful view of the Arc de Triomphe. Champs-Élysées and all metro lines just around the corner. Breakfast was included which was nice and the servers were very pleasant . Hotel staff very nice. No problems at all. Loved having a view on the street side,...no problem with noise. We took the air France bus from the airport directly to the last stop which was a 5 min walk to hotel. Just perfect. Take an open tour bus to see the most if your only there a short time. Great hotel.

Room Tip: Street view!!!

We stayed for 4 nights in April while booking very well in advance as this hotel had been very popular. The location was great, very convenient to metro, buses including buses to the airports(2 min walk away). It was 2 min walk from the Arc de Triomphe & a 10 min walk to a big Monoprix which closed at 9:00pm. The staff was very friendly & helpful, helping us to make restaurant reservations & amendment instructed by email in advance.

Breakfast was great (esp for the price) with good fruit salad, yogurt, juices, pastries & cheese/cold cuts. Coffee was hot & plentiful, served with a big jar of hot milk.

The hotel was very charming with nice ambience & was of very good value. Plenty of hot water & bath robes were available. A minor drawback was relatively thin walls & we were unlucky to have neighbours who came back late. Still highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more to get a room which could see the Arc de Tiomphe from window.

My wife booked a three night birthday suprise trip for both of us to see the sights of Paris for the first time July 2012.
Hotel Cecilia is in a Fantastic location just a stones throw away from the Arc De Triomphe and Champs-Élysées,
The room we were allocated was adequate, quite small but very clean but with a rear hotel view I must admit wasn't very nice but overall we were satisfied.
Breakfast was continental style and very good.
Overall we both felt for the price we paid we could not of had a hotel i a better location and when returning to Paris we certainly would return.

Room Tip: Front rooms with a view
