The only reason this hotel isn't 5* is it doesn't have a spa/pool/gym. However for exploring Paris its perfect. The location, just off the main shopping area of champs-d'elyees is easy for walking and very central. A very good restaurant, le avenue at the end of the street is perfect for every meal. We had a lovely evening meal and fantastic pancakes for breakfast, the best I've had. One thing I would mention is don't ask the hotel to call you a taxi, the meter will start much higher than normal. There are lots of taxis around that area, just flag one down. Laduree macaroon cafes on the champs d'elyees and near gallery Lafayette are a must, they are to die for. Cafe Marley next to the louvre is beautiful and fantastic food. The Eiffel Tower is lit up at night and flashes on the hour, lovely to see at night.

Room Tip: The higher category are worth the money as the classic are small, however if you plan on being out a...

We spent few days in this great hotel, the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated.
The staff are extremely helpful ,smily very professional.
It's location hundred meters from the Champs élysées, few meters from Avenue Montaigne the
Most prestigious avenue for high end shopping.

I visit Paris regularly and usually stay in the larger 5 star hotels. Having always walked past the Claridge Hotel, I decided to try it on my next visit and I wasn't disappointed. The staff are very helpful and professional. I booked a junior suite and was pleasantly surprised. The room was large enough (for a Paris 4 star ) very clean and nicely decorated. Great views from the balcony and excellent location in the heart of the 8eme.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Claridge. Appreciated Yvette's help making the reservations, very nice lady. We were impressed at the friendly check-in staff and enjoyed our Delux room....very large for Paris standards with tall ceilings and a beautiful huge chandelier in the middle of the room. Loved having a little balcony overlooking a beautiful neighbourhood. The front desk service was excellent each day of the 4 night stay.

Wonderful proximity to everything in Paris. It was fun walking to the Champs Elysse and seeing the huge Christmas Market. Very busy on Saturday night. Had fun going on the huge ferris wheel at the Place de Concord. Also an easy walk to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triumph. A short walk to the Roosevelt Metro station.

Nearby restaurants were delicious and well priced. The fish at Chez Andre was tasty and so fresh.

The Internet was was challenging unfortunately. Also, the 19 euro breakfast was abysmal.

Room Tip: See if you can negotiate upgrading your room for a minimal price. If you call you might have more s...

The only reason I didn't give this lovely hotel 5 stars is because of the bedroom lighting. With the ceiling lightting on, it's too harsh. With just the bedside lights on, it's too dark. Definitely no fun for reading in bed.

Really like the Claridge Hotel, very nicely done up with a lot of French flare...if you want to feel like your staying in a Parisian Hotel...stay here!! Nice furniture and ambiance..loved the street this Hotel is on...just off of Camps Elysees 5 min. By walk,...but away from the Touristy chaos..also close to the river, just 10 min walk. A lot of great restaurants nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful.

No complimentary breakfast, but plenty of places nearby to grab a quick brekfast. The Restaurant in the hotel was closed when we were there in August...so no room service, not even coffee or milk! But again theres a coffee shop..a Pret a Manger right accross the street.

I booked the hotel for an overnight stay in Paris. Generally, when travelling, I spend very little time in the hotel room, so I did not feel the need to spend money on a 5-star hotel. The Claridge was exactly what I needed. The room was prefectly fine - spotlessly clean and nicely done with a decent bathroom. Some of the reviews mention a small lift, but this is Paris and I don't know if they even make lifts that will take more than 2 people with luggage! Taxis that were requested arrived almost instanly and breakfast was fine. The one thing that makes a huge difference is the location. This hotel is around the corner from the famous George V hotel which has a well-deserved reputation for being spectacular. At the Claridge you get all the advantages of the location without the extra cost - location, location, location!! I would definitely book another overnight stay there. The hotel does the job.

Room Tip: the first floor could be noisy due to proximity of the street, but was not very concerning.
