“Wonderful location to get around Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We visited Paris in Aug 2013 and stayed at Hotel Cecilia (bed and breakfast) on two occasions - once when we arrived in Paris and then during our exit (to board our return flight). On both occasions our stay was comfortable and the service levels consistent. Marie, the lady at the reception is very well conversant in English and could help us with the nitty-gritty of getting around Paris. Below I have summarized what our experience was and what you can expect -
(+++) The location of the hotel is its biggest plus. Arc Di Triomphe and Champs Elysees are literally a stone's throw away and the metro (Charles de Gaulle-Etoille) is also next door. Even the Air France shuttle has a stop very near to the hotel. For Indians, there is a good Indian restaurant (Kiranes) as well nearby, at walking distance.
(++) Helpful staff who can speak English and are well aware of their responsibilities. On one occasion, our request for late check-out was correctly relayed by the evening staff to the morning staff.
(+) Request of early check-in and late check-out was accommodated as per availability of the room.
(+) Breakfast was standard - croissants, bread, jam, butter, cheese, fruits, cold cuts (i.e. sandwich meat), yogurt, breakfast cereals and juices/tea/coffee/milk; no eggs.
(+) Even without an in-house kitchen they did offer room-service which served good food.
(+) Availability of Wi-fi (good strength), lift and air-conditioning
(+) Rooms were clean and comfortable with all standard amenities and adequate supply of toiletries that was replenished daily
(+) Room on the first occasion was barely enough to fit in our family (me, wife and 5 yr old son) and luggage (this is to be expected all over Europe) but on the second occasion was comfortable enough with some breathing space to move around (we had paid a premium for street facing room during our second leg of stay)

Sidenote - watch out for the queer locking system of the rooms.

Room Tip: From our experience room on the street side (charged a premium) had more space.

My husband and I were visiting Paris for 3 days. We stayed at this lovely hotel. It is a very charming hotel inside out.
We loved the public rooms, the bar and the breakfast room were beautiful. Nice furnishing and very clean.
The staff of the hotel was very nice, speaking good English. The were always helpful and smiling. Two people helping with breakfast were especially very good.
I am thinking hard to add something negative about this hotel. Nothing so far.
It is just a few steps from the Arc De Triumph but still in a quiet street. The room is small, as in Europe but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than I expected, again, very clean.
Ok, one negative. Small lift. But I could not care less!!
If I ever go to Paris again I hope to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: You don't have to buy too many public transport tickets as everything in walking distance. I b...

We stayed for just a night, two families, 5 rooms, and numerous teenagers! All of us loved the service, rooms, location and breakfast. The staff were excellent, the rooms clean, French, small and simple but perfectly good enough for the price, and being just 100 metres from the Arc, and equal distance from a Metro station meant we managed to see the Arc, walk down the Champs E, eat next door to the Sacre Coeur, and see the Eiffel Tower light up at night, in just a few hours.

Stayed here in a very spacious twin room for just one night passing through Paris. The location cannot be beaten with the Arc just metres from the front door. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the bar downstairs a welcome respite from the crowds on the Champs Elysees. Highly recommended as a value for money stay in Paris. Our room was #19 and was one of the larger rooms. Will definitely stay here again on return visits.

Paris hotels are expensive and the rooms are small. That said, Hotel Cecilia was reasonably priced for a great location. Showers were consistently hot with good water pressure. Breakfasts were tasty, with fresh fruit every day, if somewhat monotonous after seven days. Staff was friendly, helpful and communicated well in English. We didn't care for the pillows, but the rest of the bedding was comfortable. Room had safe, air conditioning and coffee/ tea service. The first half of our trip we stayed at ground level, which was remarkably quiet, though the occasional early AM guest departure was disruptive. The second half we had a room on the third floor and it was very quiet.
Tip: If you stay here, take the Air France bus from CDG - the stop is literally around the corner.

Room Tip: Worth it to book an upper floor courtyard view (not for the view, but for the quiet)
