Very nice and really convenient
Reviewed 5 days ago

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Balzac. They were very accommodating when I arrived early and gave us a room, and let us switch when the preferred doubles became available the next day. It was conveniently located, about 1 block from the Champs-Èlysees without being in the middle of everything. The people were really nice. The breakfast buffet is extremely expensive. Ask first to make sure it's what you want to pay for some bites of food. The price tag, definitely surprised us. I would stay again. Off season was a good choice.

Gem in the 8th A
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I’ve walked by this hotel scores of times on past stays in Paris. On my latest trip to Europe I used this gem in the 8th as my arrival and departure hotel and was treated to a nice room, all needed amenities and great value. Rooms were both on 3rd floor facing inner courtyard with really comfortable beds, nice bathroom with shower and quiet confines. Breakfast in lobby (they could lighten it up a bit more) was excellent with full range of buffet and a la carte choices. Concierge and from desk staff most helpful and professional. I will stay here again soon. Perfect location right off the Champs and a value for sure!

fantastic hotel
Reviewed 2 months ago

Hotel Balzac was amazing . Perfectly located less than the 200 ft from the Champs. Christopher the concierge really made the experience for us . he was very very helpful and friendly. He got us tickets to all the attractions , cabs and private cars for day trips outside of Paris.
The hotel itself is marked as a 5 star hotel but in my opinion its 3.5 maybe 4 . The hotel is well decorated and elegant with an old french feel, but there is certain things that keep it from 5 stars. Stains on the carpets in the rooms , rotted wood under the balcony doors and in the bathrooms . One room has a shower with no glass and it just drains onto the floor ...very interesting concept except everything in the bathroom gets wet clothes extra towels to the toilet paper . We stayed in a room with a view of the Eiffel tower which was amazing but cost an extra 100 euros. The phones were also very hard to use and didn't have the cards telling what buttons did what. Please understand this hotel is beautiful and in a prime location ... but its not 5 star. And if your lucky enough to meet christopher hes great . I would recommend this hotel to anyone and i would probably stay here again. But if your expecting a 5 start this might fall short of your expectations

Epitome of Old French elegance
Reviewed 4 months ago

So whilst this is not a modern 5 star hotel it is the epitome of old French elegance at it’s best. Everything about this hotel lends itself to classic French chiq. The decor is exquisite, the staff perfectly mannered and stay extremely comfortable. Set just off the Arc De Triomphe end of the Champs Elysees it’s surprisingly quiet and a calm oasis in a busy city, the perfect spot for this very walkable city yet just around the corner is a metro stop if needed.
