About Hotel Balzac, Paris

Luxury hotel, 1 block from the Champs-Elysées

Just off Champs-Elysées
Luxurious Hotel Balzac places you in the upscale 8th arrondissement. George V Metro Station is around the block – turn left onto the Champs-Elysées. Turn right and you'll be able to see the Arc de Triomphe at the far end, a 5-minute walk.

Quality at every turn
You'll be in a refined neighborhood, with one of the world's most famous shopping streets around the corner – designer stores lining the Champs-Elysées include Cartier, Dior, and Louis Vuitton. Hail a cab and you can get to the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre in 10 minutes.

Home of Balzac
The hotel is named after French novelist Honoré de Balzac for a good reason – it was once his home. Today you can enjoy grand, intimate interiors and gourmet French cuisine in Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire’s signature restaurant. Guests say service is impeccable.

Opulent surroundings
Guestrooms are the height of luxury, decorated with antique French furniture, rich fabrics, and marble bathrooms. Modern touches include free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. DVD players are available on request, and there's 24-hour room service.

Hotel Balzac, Paris
Very Good8.0
The rooms are very small and beds are very firm. Also not a lot of natural lighting. Service is pretty accommodating but not amazing. Cool location because it's so close to Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower. I would stay again, but in one of the larger suites on the top floor.

Hotel Balzac, Paris
We loved it!!
Great hotel with lovely views of the Eiffel Tower. Enjoyed the quiet street it was on, no noise at all while we slept. the front desk gentleman who checked us in was very helpful as was the concierge who got our taxi upon checkout. Very close to so many tourist places. I was very impressed with the level of detail put into cleaning. I am very picky about this, so to impress me is a lot!
