“Cosy hotel with great location”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Hotel Cecilia is a nice cosy hotel conveniently located 2 minutes' walk away from Charles De Gaulle Etoile metro station.

The room was small but the bed was comfortable. It was quiet, which was good! I was lucky to have a room that isn't facing the main road. But that meant no view of the Arc De Triomphe. But that's fine.

The breakfast selection was firmly continental - toast, jam, butter, croissants, the like. Not your bacon & eggs type.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay there.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for one away from the main road, then you will get one facing the cour...

Stayed for a long weekend and this place was perfect. The staff was super friendly and helpful; the bar was elegant; the breakfast was terrific; the bathroom was renovated and, therefore, large; and although the room itself was small (which is not unusual in Paris), it had a charming balcony with lovely views. Moreover, the wi-fi was thankfully free. Finally, the location was perfect for getting all around Paris - yet it still felt warm, neighborhood-like and not overly touristic. All in all, I highly recommend this sweet and charming hotel. Best Paris stay we've had in a long time!

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony. The cost is a little higher but it adds significantly to the experien...

Stayed here as a group of 6 friends for 4 nights in Sept 2013. Perfect location with lots of restaurants and bars close to the Hotel. Good breakfasts and friendly staff. Only 1 complaint, the bar ran out of beer 1 night which we thought was very odd. Hotel is very central to everything you need to see in Paris. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the street.

Excellent location, near Arc de Triomphe, and at about 100m from metro station. Very friendly staff, always ready to help. Our standard room (nbr. 44) was spacious for Paris standards, with a roomy bathroom. Excellent and abundant breakfast buffet. All in all, a very nice hotel with a good value for money. We will certainly return

On the down side, our room opened on Mac Mahon avenue. In spite of the double-glass windows, it was rather noisy. Don't forget ear plugs.

The airport bus drops you just 2 blocks from hotel, within sight of the Arc de Triomphe and easy walk to the Champs-Elysees. A Metro stop is nearby and Eiffel tower is walkable. Staff is very friendly & accommodating, hotel and rooms are clean and modern. Free wi-fi and good breakfast. Would definitely return.

We stayed at Hotel Celilia in Paris for a week recently. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and our room was excellent. We had a small balcony overlooking avenue Mac-Mahon and we could see the Arc de Triomphe from our balcony. The Metro, restaurants, markets, Matrix supermarket, shops and the hop on hop off bus were an easy walk from the hotel. We had a nice meal at Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill which is also within walking distance and we enjoyed a Continental breakfast each morning. We would have no hesitation in booking this hotel again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking avenue Mac-Mahon is just that little bit special.

All of the glowing reviews that you have read about Cecilia are true and well deserved! Cecilia is a great small hotel a stones throw from one of the great symbols of France...the Arc De Triomphe. I had been in regular email contact with hotel staff since I first booked online and they have been super responsive to every question or request. Stayed in three hotels during our recent trip to Paris and Barcelona. All were nice but Cecilia was the one that stood out! The hotel was great, the location perfect, and the staff made us feel totally welcomed and at ease. They also had heat which makes a difference on a cold Parisian October night. Add these all up and you begin to get a feel for that "Je ne sais quoi" quality that makes Cecilia different from all the rest!
