Rochester Champs-Elysees Hotel

... to prove to be difficult to master, as even ordering McDonalds for a light dinner was quite difficult, but Merci will get you a long way. Today is the longest day of the year, and Paris celebrates with a music festival throughout the streets, even McDonalds had their own DJ and the staff were getting into the party spirit dancing in front of the restaurant. An early mark tonight for us, although we're told the partying and live music could go on until ...
... expensive! The food was delicious and we sat by this lovely couple from Connecticut. The woman from that couple spoke fluent French, and had studied abroad in Paris for an entire year when she was in college! One we finished our dinner we headed back over to the Eiffel Tower to catch the light show. When the light show was finally finished, we began to reminisce on our trip so far and how we have so little left to do! It was a great albeit sad ...
... When we arrived we took the RER train straight to la Gare du Nord and spotted our hostel right outside of the station. The hostel was modern, clean, hip and friendly with a bar just downstairs playing live music every night and serving free breakfast each morning. After checking in we went to the Latin Quarter for a 15 euro three course dinner and a stroll near the Notre Dame Cathedral.
For our full day in Paris, I took us all around town:
- Walked to the Sacre ...
... they'd erected a rather large grey stand right in front of it which had masses of people on and completely ruined the view of it. Then of course there were to the two separate massive queues to get inside and to go up to the towers respectively which we definitely weren't gonna wait for. After a quick spot of lunch we left Notre Dame and headed toward the Bastille monument, stopping off a nice cafe ...
... Disney's special parade. It was awesome! However my sister made the trip down by moaning how she couldn't go on the dumbo ride first. What a moaner! Luckily she calmed down when we bought some pizzas and stuffed ourselves. After all we were starving after all that and the walk around Disneyland! We helped ourselves to a few slushies and ice creams. Now normally my mom would go on and on about how ice creams could give you brain freezes and that they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rochester Champs-Elysees Hotel Paris
We have just returned from paris after staying 2 nights at this hotel. It was just as it looks in the pictures. It is only 5 minutes walk away from the champs elyeeses. The room we stayed in was on the ground floor overlooking the courtyard. It was a large room and very quite at night. We booked the deal with expedia whereby you get a bottle of champagne in your room. Just after arriving they promptly deleivered our champayne in a lovely ice bucket.
The reception staff were very helpful and told us where we could get buses,trains etc. I would recommend this hotel highly.
We got engaged in paris which was the icing on the cake.
A Truly Fantastic hotel
The hotel and the staff were both excellent. Great service and helpful staff at breakfast too.
The hotel itself was clean, tidy and everything you'd expect from a 4* plus more.
Very convenient location, just a 15 mins walk fom Champs Elysees and other sites.
What a perfect location and an ideal slice of Parisian life. The hotel staff are wonderful. The room we had on the 4th floor faced the courtyard and had a very large marble bath, with good quality bath products. The room was reasonably sized given that this is downtown Paris, just 5 min walk from the Champs - there's a G20 and Monoprix along the route for room snacks. The hotel arranged a Mercedes car service to the Airport and stored our bags while we had a walk the morning of our departure. Continental breakfast included in the BA Holidays package. Would definitely come back, but would probably spend the little extra for an upgrade to a larger room. All and all, a great little hotel!
Nice Hotel, Excellent Value
Pleasant, reasonably spacious rooms in a convenient location near Blvd. Hausmann and the Champs Elysees, just a few steps from the Metro. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again.
Perfect for a Paris break
I have recently returned from a break at the Rochester and feel I want to reccommend this fantastic hotel to other travellers. The staff have the correct level of friendliness, they are there for you if you want them or fade into background if not required. The rooms are of a very high standard and the facilities are first rate. The location is perfect and there are several good local eateries in the area from Tabacs to fine dining. The clincher for me was breakfast being served up to 1.00 pm, something I have rarely encountered.
I recently spent a week at Rochester Champs-Elysées Hotel, and I would heartily recommend it to all travellers to Paris. My room was on the seventh floor, with windows on the inner courtyard, therefore extremely quiet and relaxing, not to mention quite spacious. There was plenty of room for my things both in the room and in the bathroom, which was not big but more than enough for one person. The food at breakfast was also first-rate.
Top marks to the staff too, as they were both friendly and efficient. Last but not least, the location is one of the best you can find in Paris, with a Metro station just round the corner (and I mean literally), shops, restaurants, cafés and the bright lights of the Champs-Elysées just a few steps away.
Having just returned from three day stay at this lovely hotel. Rooms excellent, staff excellent and extremly helpful, food excellent. Also nice and central for all site seeing. Pictures of the hotel on the web site do not do it justice. Would not hesitate in returning or recommending this lovely hotel.
Quiet, clean, convenient location
I visit Paris frequently for both business and pleasure, and stay at this hotel most of the time. It is convenient to the Champs Elysees and many business locations. It is surrounded by restaurants and shopping and is very close to the metro. The rooms are modern, clean, and the air conditioning is real (not like many Paris hotels that claim to have AC, but it's often inadequate). The staff is efficient and most speak English well.
Stayed in this lovely hotel, rooms were fantastic, great location, hotel concierge arranged a restaurant near by called Berkley excellent food, staff friendly. Would not stay any where else in Paris.
Absolutely the Best
My husband and I stayed at this little gem of a hotel in the summer of 2001. The lobby is lovely and the staff was so very friendly; they gave us a fabulous room overlooking the street below. The beds were extremely comfortable, as were the unusual sausage-shaped pillows - I loved them so much I almost crammed one in my suitcase to take home with me, but didn't! The food was exceptional. Fresh hot croissants each morning, and the little cafe in the lobby had teriffic omelettes.
The staff also arranged dinner for us at a charming local restaurant - not a tourist trap - and it was the highlight of our trip. Outstanding in every respect, we will stay here every time we go to Paris. (I also LOVE the narrow hallways and the tiny elevators, which add to the charm of this hotel!)
