Stayed here on a short break whilst on route to Disneyland Paris to celebrate our daughters 5th birthday. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us impeccably, very approachable, friendly and accommodating. As they knew it was my daughters birthday on arrival the staff actually went to the Disney Store to buy my daughter a large Minnie Mouse soft...

Nearly all of my travel is on business and I spend the majority of my time in typical international hotels which are often designed with the business traveler in mind but can lack a certain originality. From the moment you walk in to the lobby of the Hotel California Paris Champs Elysees, there is no doubt that you are in...

I stayed a night here on business. The hotel is right on the champs elysees only 5 minutes walk from the Arc de Triumph. It has several hotels, shops and restaurants all minutes from this hotel. River Seine, Musee Louvre are all within walking distance. I did not stay here long enough to judge their service, but from what I...

We were very impressed with this hotel. The staff were wonderful and helpful. The room was large and elegant. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Paris. Good location also.

Stayed here last night for business. Swift check in and very friendly staff. More than happy to provide the forgotten adapter plug and toothpaste! I stayed in room 103.

Clean, great service, fantastic location, excellent staff. The only issue was the breakfast buffet, but that could be perceived as a personal preference. Otherwise, we highly recommend it! Extremely friendly staff, always there to help.

It's a very nice, comfortable Parisian hotel. Rooms were surprisingly large for central paris. Nice courtyard area to enjoy a nice glass of wine. I would happily stay there again when I next visit Paris.

This hotel located off the centre of the Champs Elysees means that you are in the heart of one of the busiest tourist areas of Paris, with Arc de Triomphe 5 minutes walk and Place de la Concorde around 15 minutes walk away. Although this means that you are close to tourist attractions it means that you are also surrounded...

This hotel is very well located - 5 minutes away from the Champs Elysees. The room is quite big, and the bathroom well lit. The hairdryer is one of those attached to the wall, so if you have long hair forget trying to use it! The decor is a bit dated but the hotel is clean and the bed comfortable....
