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.

... one bowl. Each occasion after use, the toilet takes up to 3 minutes before the next person can use it. Yes it does take a long time and fortunately as John and I were doing number 1’s – we went into together, got the job done and got out.
Next Jackie and Kate had a similar experience although they had a number 2 to content with which made for some merriment after the event.
Then it was onto the Eiffel Tower for the nightly lighting event. ...
... was close to the front entrance and as we took photos Dave said he wished he had a beer to pour over his grave so he could say 'Pour one for my homie'. Hahahahahaha. I suggested that the French would likely kick us out of the country.
Ahh such friviolity in a graveyard. We are so emo.
Then it absolutely POURED down with rain so we gave up the ghost (yuk yuk) and decided to head on down to the catacombs. It was that kind of day. ...
... dinner at the same restaurant that we had last night and me , Liam and dad got snails and frogs legs for starter and the frogs legs were so GOOD but the snails were good too. So I like frogs legs more than snails. After that we went on a train and went to Hard Rock Cafe and bought a couple of things. We went back on the train and went to our hotel and we went to ...
... it is nice but not sure how one piece of art work can be worth quite that much! Once we had done the business we could relax and look at some other parts of the museum. There was heaps to look at but our next favourite thing was Napoleons Apartments which was pretty amazing and opulent. Just chandelier after chandelier. Amazing how things were hundreds of years ago. It was about 11am by the time we finished up there so we headed out to get a baguette and went ...
... but they had stopped serving already. The server was also grateful that I was communicating in French, which clearly my accent shows I am not, but he did not recognize me as American until I told him. He told me his name was Jean-Claude, but didn't understand what my name was until I defined it as "l'aube". By the time I got "home" I was famished- days on end walking does that! Cooked up a sautée of asparagus, shallot, criminis, and rosemary. What a great ...
