Not Simenon's "Majestic" maybe, but still nice!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 14, 2006

I would recommend this hotel because of its location, its history, its large studio-style room, and its proximity to Laduree's hot chocolate and macaroons. This is the hotel where Hemingway's buddy holed up and then had to be "bailed out" by friends when he couldn't pay the bill, and it's the hotel that inspired Simenon's "Majestic" in his Maigret series. But, it's in the process of a restoration and redecoration and has a very in-progress feel. The rooms are nice, especially for the price, and the location on the Champs-Elysees is fun if you want to stay on the right bank.

Unique Quality: The outside rooms obviously offer nice views onto the Champs-Elysees, but the inside rooms face a lovely, tiled courtyard. The bathroom was actually large enough to turn around in! It had a tub, decent amenities, and a great heater. The staff was pleasant and as helpful as they possibly could be, but several times neither my French nor their English were good enough to make concierge service a possibility. If you are counting on help with arrangements, reservations, or directions, this might not be the hotel for you...at least not for the time being. I'm delighted though that the beautiful facade outside is being saved.

Directions: It's a nice location for a short trip to Paris--on the Champs-Elysees between the Arc de Triumph and the Place de Concorde, caddy corner to Laduree.
