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.

... time because our connecting flight to Paris was delayed an hour, maybe two. By the time we boarded I was so tired I couldn't compute just how late we were. Last flight was with Air seashelles. If you get the chance to fly with them, Don't! Highlight of the flight was a seat in the front row (extra leg room) low lights included the food, the service and they lost my luggage. Now I don't know who advised me to carry a change of clothes in my carry ...
Up at the crack of, I snooze for a little and listen, for the last time, to our building and street beginning to stir. Yalini is already packed so she stretches herself in the living room, on the yoga mat that she is very pleased she decided to bring with her. I pack quickly and head out for a short morning stroll around our neighbourhood. I don't care that the locals would laugh at my choice of walking music — 1960's hip jazz tunes by famous French chanteur ...
... by Toni Servillo. Its best moments sometimes reminiscent of Fellini, Wong kar-wai, and Paul Thomas Anderson, though i do nevertheless believe that some of The Great Beauty is lost in translation - though thankfully not nearly as much as with Sorrentino's Il Divo. I leave theater happy with the outing, and find the sidestreets around the Bastille roundabout swollen with Friday night revellers. I, for one, am exhausted by another grueling yet stimulating day. I stop in ...
... big thing here is the long Monet lilly paintings. They were incredible too. And you can sit in the middle of the room and just stare at the paintings. Very impressive. Downstairs they had some Italian art, Picasso was a big name, another is Matisse. But I don't think I really like modern art. It's a bit too ugly and aesthetically unpleasant. Perhaps it's the odd disjointed-ness and abstract-ness that I just don't have a high appreciation for. I'm a sucker for ...
... free tickets. Tom wasn't complaining about watching girls with their wheels out and drinking free champagne all for FREE! The show had so much colour and talent! There was even a girl who swam half naked with two massive pythons in water! Definitely the highlight! After the show we met Nikki and her boyfriend both dancers in the show and went for some drinks. Heard heaps of cool stories of her amazing life living in Paris and dancing in the Moulin Rouge for ...
