Best hotel in Paris”
This is the best hotel of the same class I've ever stayed in Paris. Actually can't find anywhere else. 1. Perfect location - one minute walk from the Champs Elysees that every visitor must go and yet tucked in the side street which makes it very quiet. 2. Staff are super helpful. Front desk staff and concierge staff alway provide help proactively - from very basic e.g. giving direction, to something not necessarily to be provided e.g. use of computer, and even more e.g. writing words in French so that you can look for it when shopping. 3. Beautifully furnished and clean hotel room. It is very classical and newly renovated. There are windows in the room so that you can get some fresh air. 4. There are suites and triple rooms that perfectly suit family or people travelling together. We stayed at the deluxe suite which is a duplex, very special design. Highly recommended for any kind of visitors I dare say.
Best Valued Suite near Champs Elysees”
Nice hotel, nice people all around from the doorman to the housekeeping staff. Reception desk assists anything from local activities, travelling inquiries and printing airline tickets at no charge. Classic interior with modern amenities in the bedroom, exactly what we expected in Paris. We got Junior Suite on the 1st floor overlooking the outdoor lounge in the center of the hotel, very quiet perfect for the baby, heater works well. Location is perfect, there is a supermarket across the hotel to the right about 30m., George V metro stop is around 7 mins walk, taxi stand is also right in the corner of Champs Elysees and the hotel's street. Now the cons are no bathtub aside from oversized bathroom, the sofa bed is alright but consist of 2 singles with foldable steel structure, during our 10 nights stay housekeeping only refill the coffee and sugar for 2 - 3 times. Overall is an excellent stay, would love to stay here again.
Excelent hotel with excellent attention.”
The Hotel California, is a nice and well located hotel near lots of restaurants and from the famous avenue Champs Elysee, with it commercial live. Also near to Metro Stations (George V and Charles de Gaulle-Etoille. The rooms are spacious, and the attention are superb, in Spanish, English, Italian and of Course in French. So Language barrier is not a limitation in this hotel. Only issue is the access system to the rooms was not robust requiring reprogramming of the cards every day.
Great city. Brilliant Hotel. Excellent Staff.”
We booked the deluxe room, it is a very comfortable big room with a big windows that you can see the garden restaurant. Bathroom is large, enough for 2 people to use at the same time. Air-conditioning is good, no need to worry if you are from tropical countries. Water pot is available inside the room, you can make hot tea or coffee by yourself. There is ice machine provided in the public corridor, you can make cold drink if you like. Wifi is fast in room. Great location, 2 mins to Zara, H&M, LV and other shops in Champs Elysees. 5 mins to the Metro. Location is really really great - convenient in the busy area but not noisy. 2-3 stars Michelin restaurants are available nearby. Staff are friendly & helpful except night shift staff - we asked for service few times but got no follow up or reply. Daytime staff are very sincere and good communication skills. We booked the hotel thru Agoda with good price. Highly recommended!!!! Taxi from hotel to airport (CDG) only cost 46 euro (with slightly jam in the city center).
Excelent location, excelent staff/”
Excelent hotel, the rooms are good and clean, my reservation didn't include breakfast but the first time I stayed it was included and was really good. The staff is kind and respectfull. The rooms are very good. but the most important feature is it locations, at walking distance from Champs Elysee. Near a subway station, that can take you almost everywhere in Paris. Good relationship price-value. I'm quite happy with the selection of this hotel
Had a wonderful stay~!”
just a few minutes walk to Champs Elysees, many shops and restaurants near by, and around 8 minutes walk to the George V Station. The room was clean with comfortable bed, staffs were polite, friendly and informative, but the wifi should be improved as we cannot connect in our room, or it is not an advantage for tourists when making choice that hotel provide the free wifi. Also, same as many feedback, there's no complimentary water in the room. Lastly, the drains had a little bit clogged that the toilet in our room quite wet after shower. In conclude, we enjoy our stay very much and will recommend to whom are going to travel in Paris~! and will be back for our next visit~!
THE HEART OF CHAMPS ELYSEES”
ROOMS WERE SPACIOUS, STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING. LOCATION -- HOTEL LOCATED RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF CHAMPS ELYSEES, CLOSE TO RUE DE FAUBOURG SAINT HONORE(EVERY GIRL'S SHOPPING HAVEN), AT THE CORNER YOU'LL FIND ZARA (FOR LAST MINUTE GIRL FINDS), IF YOU NEED COMFORT FOOD FROM A QUICK MCDONALDS JUST AROUND THE CORNER TOO. NO TOO MENTION A PHARMACY NEARBY. OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS SUPERB!
Good service,fantastic location, big & clean room”
It is a really pleasant hotel, by my arrival at 3.00 am, people was very warm and offer me some breakfeast while the ladies were arranging the restaurant, then I got upgraded to a junior suite, which is super roomy, clean, and well designed. Paris was very cold at that time, and the room upon my arrival was very comfy. I did not taste the food there, but went to the bar, and it is very French style, nice, tres francais ... a little pricey through Apart from that, I met one of my colleague friend who actually used their business facilities for business meetings and was very pleased with the service Highly recommended, very much what Asian tourist in Paris would expect from a hotel that has a fantastic location (30 sec from Champs elysees)
Good location, friendly staff”
The hotel is just 5 minutes from the main Champs Elysees road. It is behind Zara and Marks & Spencer, and just a block away from Louis Vuitton. It's about 20 minutes away from Arc De Triomphe and 30 minutes away (all by walk) from Musee D'Orsay. Facilities is okay. However, we have someone with us who's in a wheelchair and out of all the hotels we've had during our Europe trip (8 hotels), this was the only one where we had to reserve a higher room type (3rd room type from cheapest), which is EUR60 on top of the 2nd room type. We just decided to retain the 2nd room type. What was great though was that they upgraded the other rooms to the 2nd room type (we had 3 rooms in total) so we are all adjacent to each other. Hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating - the most out of all the hotels we've stayed at during the trip.
Amazing experience with California. Excellent location in Champs elysees. Room is clean and big enough. Value with Money. The staffs are nice. Definitely will be back again.
Romantic and pleasent”
Very nice, we only have positive experience from the hotel. Staff very helpfull and friendly. Hotel is a bit old but still have class and well kept. Few minuttes from champs elysees.
Loved this hotel!”
We chose this hotel because of the name Hotel California and I've always loved that song. That aside, I have been to Paris a few times and I really enjoyed this hotel better than the others I've stayed at. I think this hotel is very good value for money. The rooms are bigger than the other hotels I've stayed at in Paris for the same price. The location is fantastic - very close to the action. We were not able to book tickets to Moulon Rouge online as it was sold out, but the staff at the hotel was able to book tickets for us at the same price as the online price. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Overall, I had no complaints about this hotel, it was a very comfortable stay and I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Located just of Champs E'lysee”
As i was running the Paris Marathon, I wanted to be near the start of the race so I didnt have to trek across town. This was perfect. About a 2 minute walk to the champs E'lysee. Rooms were nicely decorated in a sort of Chateau style, and the room overlooked the courtyard garden. The staff were all very nice. Who said the French hate the English? We were made to feel very welcome. We drank in the reception bar and again the staff were very attentive and friendly. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.
Good choice, repeat stay”
Second time staying in this hotel due to the first pleasant experience. Room is clean and big. In-room slippers available upon requesting. Location wise is just 2mins walk from the main Champ Elyses road. Only bad point is that bathtub does not come with shower curtain, so taking a bath can be a challenge unless you stay near to the hose. Also, not sure if it's the culture in Europe but we experienced the hotel staff knocking on our door and 10seconds later, before we manage to get to the door, she came in by herself. Just remember to always hang the "do not disturb" sign on the door to prevent it from happening.
hotel with tipping requirement to get staff active”
Initial impression was not positive as we had to wait until 4PM before we were able to move in our room. As usual, rooms via Agoda are usually at the backside for obvious reasons, so no nice view. The location is nice and convenient next to the major shopping areas of the champs elyssees with an entrance to the Champs Elyssees Arcade, a well-know high-end shopping arcade. Location is just around the corner of Avis Car Rental which is very convenient if you rent from Avis and/or Budget car rental to return your car as you don't need a car in Paris. Before 7.30AM there are no activities in the hotel, so no concierge service which is inconvenient when you have to leave for the airport before that time. Taxi reservation needs to be done the previous day. Trip rate to CDG around Euro 80. Good Chinese restaurant opposite the hotel.
Good location ”
The hotel location is good for shopping and eating in Champ Elysees. The superior room especially the bathroom is quite small and not constructed well. The small sink and the toilet floor will always be wet because the bathing cubicle is in the centre, thus making it difficult to cross over to the toilet bowl.
Great Location, close to Champs Elysees”
The hotel is typical for a 3-4 star Paris hotel. The rooms are on the small side, but well appointed. The best aspect of the hotel is the location. It is only 150 meters to the Champs Elysees, close to the Arc de Triomphe. Easy access to the Metropolitain. The staff were very friendly and although we arrived early, could use the gym and shower facilities. The bar/lounge is a happening place and good spot to enjoy and early evening drink. The gym is well equipped.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic location. Very clean, comfortable and well appointed rooms. Hotel California is my home in Paris. been staying here on every visit (average thrice a year) for the past three years. there is always a warm welcome, right from the front door.
Reasonable location and nice quality hotel”
the hotel is right off the champs elysees and as such is close to the metro and bus routes. the rooms were very large for paris although one of our bathrooms left a little to de desired. that said the hotel is generally a quiet place to rest weary sightseeing bones.
Good location ”
Impressed with the staff service so helpful with luggages and everything! and good location easy to walk to shopping street! and close to Champ Elysees. We will definitely go back again!
