I chose the Chambiges Elysees for its perfect location, being right at the heart of the 'Golden Triangle' in the 8th arrondissement. As a father travelling with 2 teenage children I wanted a hotel within walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and the Louvre museum. The added bonus was that its a 10 minute walk to the 'Pont de l'Alma' metro stop for a half hour's journey to Chateau de Versailles and less than 10 minutes walk to avenue des Champs Elysees. A supermarket is 200m away and the charming and quiet side streets offer a large variety of restaurants for an afternoon drink or evening meal.
I wanted an archetypal Parisienne hotel with classic decor as opposed to a modern steel and concrete skyscraper and also needed a triple room and the Chambiges Elysses offered this facility.
The hotel doesn't provide a restaurant service, which suits my style of travelling as I like to explore and experience local restaurants. However, a continental breakfast buffet is provided which was exemplary and even a fussy, vegetarian, teenage daughter managed to fill up with the choices offered.
The staff speak fluent English although I tried my best conversational French which seemed to get me by.
A taxi service to the airport was offered twice, which was thoughtful, although I had already booked return tickets on Air France's Les Cars to CDG. Service 2 runs from exit 34 at CDG's arrivals terminal 1 and terminates at the Arc de Triomphe and is only some 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The journey itself is some 45 minutes to an hour depending on traffic and costs €24 return and runs every half hour from 6am to 11pm.
The Chambiges Elysees offers great value for money and I can highly recommend it.
