Hotel Balmoral Paris – Awesome Stay
Stay in the Heart of Paris
We are so happy that we had chosen to stay at Hotel Balmoral Paris during our recent trip to the city of love. For the record, this is a 4 star hotel, which offers luxurious and stylish accommodation bundled with hospitality and high level services to its customers. This charming hotel is located right in the heart of Paris i.e. Champs-Élysées, which is truly the best and most expensive place to stay in the city. If you take the correct exit from “Charles de Gaulle Etoile” Metro station, you can reach the Hotel within two minutes by easy walk.
Charles de Gaulle Etoile Metro station is connection hub of Metro Line 1, 2 and 6 as well as RER line A. If you are staying at Hotel Balmoral Paris, you can reach all major attractions of Paris within minutes. Eiffel Tower is 5 metro stations away on line 6, Louvre is 5 metro stations away on Line 1, Anvers (Sacre Coeur) is 9 metro stations away on Metro Line 2, La Defence (Grand Arche) is one RER station away on RER line A.
If you are coming from Airport (CDG or ORY), you need to take RER to Chatlet Halles and then RER A to Charles de Gaulle Etoile (which is two stops away). The best part of having a RER station near to Hotel is that unlike Metro, RER network runs in night too. So, if you have to catch an early morning flight or train (like we had) and you are based at Hotel Balmoral Paris (again like we had), then you need not worry about it (like we didn’t). Other major attraction including Versailles is easy to reach by public transport if you are based here.
Bike to Champs-Élysées and Major Attractions
If you love walking tours or simply walking, you will love your stay at Hotel Balmoral Paris. The mesmerizing Eiffel Tower is 25 minutes walking distance from the hotel. We strongly recommend the walk from Louvre to Hotel Balmoral Paris. We saw these amazing and romantic colors of fall near Champs-Élysées during our visit in mid September. And if you do not wish to walk, then Hotel Balmoral Paris has better options for you. Cycles are available on complimentary basis for the guests and you can explore the city at your own pace from this perfect base.
Hotel Reception and Ambiance
We had a zero-hassle arrival at reception and had a warm welcome from the Hotel Staff. The hospitality and courteousness of the hotel staff was noteworthy. Also, the ambiance of the hotel was very appealing. It seems a lot of thought process has gone in the decoration of the Hotel premises, corridors and rooms. We found the placement of decorative mirrors, lampshades, paintings and other items very captivating. It created an aura of luxury and elegance around us which effused a feeling of aristocracy and royalty.
Rooms and Interior Decor
The Rooms were great and up to the standards of a 4 star Hotel. The comfortable beds and quietness of the room ensured a good night sleep. The interior decoration of the suit room was really charming.
Room Essentials and Bathrooms
Rooms were equipped with all required essentials from a spacious cupboard to coffeemaker, from sofa to dining table for two among other things. Even the bathrooms were roomy and stylish. They had a bathtub as well as shower in the bathroom along with high standard fittings. The hygiene and cleanliness of the hotel was undoubtedly exceptional.
Restaurant and Lounge
Hotel Balmoral Paris has an elegantly decorated Restaurant cum lounge. They also have an open sitting area for their guests. Though the restaurant does not serve dinner and lunch, the guests can have coffee, tea and snacks (available on shelf) anytime on complimentary basis. The guests can also order various alcoholic drinks and soft drinks here. The breakfast is complimentary with stay and served in the room. It is important to note that smoking is not permitted in the premises of the Hotel. Speaking about downsides, we only found one that the lifts were really small. However, it is understood that most of the accommodation stays in Paris have similar small lifts and it is a common thing.
