My fiancé and I were extremely fortunate to receive a gift to stay for free at this hotel in early June. Although we were not paying customers per se, they put us in an extremely nice room and the staff was very attentive throughout our stay. The room was definitely nicer than I expected and the bathroom is extremely large...

Perfect location if one prefers this area of Paris. The rooms were not ready before actual check in time, and there was a bit of a queue in the reception on arrival. The staff was however friendly and outgoing. The rooms was nice and clean, but small, especially the bathroom. The main purpose of the trip was not staying in...

We've been to Paris many times, but this was the first time we stayed near the Champs Elysees area. The location of this hotel is very convenient. It is just a minute walk to the main Champs Elysees where all the shops and restaurants are. The rooms are not that big, but certainly big enough, comfortable and clean. The hotel...

The hotel is 2 mins walk from the Champs Elysees and about 45-60 from the airport. You can walk to the Arc de Triomphe in 10 mins and the Eiffel Tower in 30 mins. The hotel is located in a side street with other hotels all around. The entrance gives a feeling of a old, traditional hotel that has been...

The Hotel California is located just off the Champs Elysees, so is fairly central to most things you want to see in Paris. The rooms are small, as with any big-city hotel, but very clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful, most spoke good English, and the breakfast buffet was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying...

Had a short experience of this very nice hotel just off the Champs Elysees. Definitely one for a romantic weekend in Paris. Perfect location - expensive but 1st class. Food was wonderful and the rooms immaculate. Staff a bit uppity but its Paris. Had a business meeting there and was very well organised. Good open room and excellent canopies.
