Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel California Paris Champs Elysees
I stayed here with my husband last weekend and had a fabulous time. The hotel is in a great location very close to the Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe. We had a booked a prestige room which had an enormous bed and was not cramped at all. The bathroom was clean and spacious. the staff were very helpful and spoke very good english. The artworks were plentiful and as art is subjective out of 4000 there are bound to be some you don't like but mainly they added to the splendid surroundings would go back again and heartily recommend this hotel to anyone.
What a bad experience
Very disappointing stay in this supposed 4* Hotel. Except a good location near Champs Elysées. Rooms are too small (Never stay in room 427 !!!!) larger room with a very expansive extra fee. Very poor service, no Concierge desk, breakfast quality really average. Not to mention a very strange decor with plenty of horrible paintings.
***** Excellent Hotel *****
Excellent stay with very attentive staff. Close to everything on the Champs-Elysées and great restaraunts in walking distance. Everything was top-notch from the moment we stepped into the hotel. Breakfast was o.k. with a wide selection. The shopping that is close is eye-poppingly expensive, but I have heard of better, less expensive parts of town to shop, so we didn't do any on Champs-Elysées. There is a men's shop that just opened a few doors from the hotel and the prices there were the most reasonable and they were very nice, so I picked up a few items. The suite was marvelous and big, they also have duplex suites that were more expensive, but the same size as a regular suite. The difference is the duplex is on 2 floors, but the suite we booked had a large balcony with a table and chairs. If you can afford the suite, it is a better value than the regular rooms which are just as nice, but small.
Stayed here in both June and August, excellent both times, staff 1st class, rooms very good, breakfast great - will visit again
A great locale with a quiet ambience
This hotel is impressive for several reasons: peace and quiet in a busy area, good breakfast, fresh air and freedom from smoke. It is very close to Metro and makes Paris very accessible from many vantage points. We enjoyed our stay very much. Service and staff very friendly and unobtrusive.
Would really recommend this hotel to a family as well as the rooms are spacious.
We stayed three nights at end of May 2004. Perfect location just off the Champ Elysee. Although the hotel was hosting many officials and players for the French Open, it remained calm with excellent service. Rooms were nicely appointed, and original artwork throughout the hotel made a very unique and charming place to stay. Excellent value and would definitely return.
Would stay here again.
We stayed for three nights in May. We loved it. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were bigger than average with great bathrooms. It was worth the extra money.
The locations is great with many wonderful restaurants within walking distance.
If we ever decide to go back to Paris I would stay here again.
Calm and clean
it is a very clean and calm hotel with helpful staff and an excellent location. you can reach most of the tourist popular sites in just a few moments. no noisy surroundings. the hotel has an excellent collection of paintings. if i travel to paris , most likely i will stay at it again.
Stayed there many times
I have stayed in this marvelous place at least five times. They have always upgraded me to wonderful large rooms. Sometimes I have had a small balcony overlooking the street which is nice and quiet. This hotel is a find.
Recommend the Hotel California
Stayed at the Hotel California in early March 2003. Great room, great breakfast - actually too much choice. Good service - great location - just off the Champs Elysees. Too bad that the dining room was not in operation - the sample menu looked great for that evening when feet and body just don't want to go out. Would stay there again with no hesitation whatsoever.

... not that far apart from each other. Either can walk to them all or it is only a short metro ride! A very accessible city.
Monday was Gabby's 19th Birthday! and we got to catch up with Liam from Coles back home! We started the morning visiting the sacré coeur, which was really beautiful . We walked inside and around, bonus it was free! Then we caught the metro to a huge cemetery which was really cool, the money that some must have had!!! my ...
... apparently born in the same year as the tower! So I guess you could say we visited the Eiffel Tower after all - though not the one most people have in mind. Oh, and we also found ourselves walking over the bridge covered in love locks - a phenomenon started in Paris that seems to be making its way around the world. Mindful of the damage the locks cause to the bridges (which are buckling under their collective weight), we chose a ...
Wow what a day, we set off this morning to Notre Dame. It was beautiful and one of the few things you can still see for free. It was impressive from the outside but magnificent inside. We did not climb up the tower though. Molly lit a candle inside and even allowed me to take a photo of her. We then grabbed the hop on hop off bus - similar to the one we did in London, again is was open air on the top giving ...
... for a walk and went down Blvd Saint Michel; I sat in the little garden behind the Cluny Museum, eating a panini sandwich, which I bought at a window place across my street; then I walked down passing the Sorbonne, saw the Pantheon in the distance, and hoped to walk through the Luxemburg Gardens, but somehow it was closed to the public. There were guards stationed at each and every entrance, obviously, some event was going on inside. I circled around ...
I wake up fresh and ready to go on Day 2, pop across the road to the patisserie and get my breakfast, we do have a McDonalds around the corner which is where I go to get my takeaway coffee. We then bound the train for a trip to Montmartre. It is very quiet out and about but then again it is 9am and the french don't really get started until late ...
