Our stay at the Hotel Bradford Elyees was excellent. A great location, old world charm, the rooms were spacious, amazing clean and the amenities were terrific: from the luxurious robs to the exceptional breakfast buffet. The cocktail lounge, complementary beverage and snack and other sitting areas were wonderful. We especially liked the vintage “caged” elevator that ran up the center of the stairs, like the scene out of the James Bond movie. The entire staff were friendly, efficient, helpful and professional. We’d definitely return to the Hotel Bradford Elysees!
We had such a lovely time at the Bradford Elysee Hotel. Amazing room, facilities and especially service. I loved all the amenities like the all day snacks/water/coffee etc. Also the breakfast was delicious with so many options! Our server Laurent was so friendly and accommodating and had wonderful suggestions for enjoying the city. We were very happy to be there and the location was ideal!
We've visited Paris many times - maybe 30 - and we've stayed in many different hotels. This was our first time at the Bradford, and it got off to a great start. We were in room 26, a lovely, large, comfortable room. We were very pleased with the breakfast, a bargain at 15 EUR. We liked the location and it is an attractive building. Unfortunately on our 3rd day, the air conditioning stopped working. Instead of making an effort to fix the problem, 3 different members of the Bradford staff simply treated us as if we were too stupid to know how to use the AC. They offered advice such as "turn it off and on", "set the temperature to 15C" and "open a window". The gentleman on the night shift even gave us the infamous Gallic Shrug. It was an astonishing display of indifference to a guest. Two days after we left, someone at the Bradford emailed me to apologize for the AC issue and offer a small refund for our trouble. Clearly the guests who occupied the room after us also reported the problem, so they realized that maybe we weren't stupid after all. I think we'll be switching back to our old hotel on the Left Bank for our next visit. …
The hotel was extremely comfortable, great staff, free wi-fi, free minibar, clean and big rooms, very good location, also there are free of charge food & beverage in the lobby. I highly recommend this great hotel.
Stayed for 6 nights, room was clean , spacious compared to other hotels, close to Champ Elyssee. Surprise gift for my birthday too. Will come back another time. Highly recommend for couples who want to explore Paris near Champ Elyssee area.
This hotel was charming and the room was spacious. Nirosha worked the breakfast and was always accomodating and went the extra mile to ensure that the guests needs were met. It was located near the tube station and easily walkable to the Arc de triomphe and Champs elysee. The rooms were not soundproof but the windows and curtains were heavy and it was very quiet.
This was our third time in this wonderful hotel. Ideally situated this well run establishment is staffed with delightful individuals who seem to take it personally to make its guests feel welcome. A friendly chat. A "bonjour". A smile. A no problem attitude. A room that says " relax you are home!", with a quaint balcony that scream "joie de vivre". A personalised letter & some macarons left on the desk to welcome you. A no charge policy to soft drinks in your fridge. Nice amenities & essentials in the bathroom. A very adequate breakfast to start your day in Paris. Complimentary snacks with hot & cold drinks in the afternoon. Merci. A très bientôt Bradford Elysées.
The staff made us feel very welcomed specifically Nirosha every morning made the breakfast a little more enjoyable :) very clean hotel and convenient amenities. Situated in the perfect spot in Paris if looking to do fun touristy things. Thanks
I found this hotel by reading trip advisor reviews. I was a little skeptical of their high rating because a lot of the reviews seemed to be from people who had only 1 or 2 review contributions, which is generally a sign that the reviews are either fake or solicited. However, there were enough reviews from real people (aka people with more than 1 or 2 contributions) who seemed to have the same things to say in their reviews, so I booked it. I was really happy with my choice. One of the things that stood out to me in previous reviews was that the front desk people spoke English and were helpful to tourists. I don't speak French and had never been to Paris, so this was important to me, and turned out to be accurate. We purchased the standard double room w/included breakfast. The bed was queen sized and didn't feel like 2 twin beds pushed together (though I think it was, based on looking under the bed). The breakfast add-on was worth it to us because when we had to get up early to go to a museum, and didn't have time to go out for breakfast, we were able to get enough to eat at the hotel to hold us over until lunch. They always had eggs and bacon or sausage, some pastries, yogurt, applesauce etc. They served really delicious coffee. And they had pastries and tea out for the rest of the day, which was a nice treat to grab when you come back after a long day of sightseeing. I think there is a charge for the breakfast if you don't book it as part of your stay. The beds were comfortable, kind of on the hard side but not in a bad way. The sheets are a bit low quality, kind of scratchy. But the pillows were sufficient, and I never woke up with a knot in my back. They also give you bathrobes and slippers, which was a really nice touch. There's also a tea kettle in your room, and a refrigerator if you bring home leftovers. The bathrooms are small but nice enough. The showers only had a half-wall of shower glass, which made it so water always ended up on the floor unless you turned the showerhead towards the wall. But the showerhead had lots of water pressure, and the water was always piping hot, which is good, because there's no way to control the heat in your room, so if it's cold outside like it was when we visited, you're gonna need a nice hot shower to warm up. There was a nice deep bathtub too. Water pressure in the toilet was terrible. There's no hooks to hang face rags (in fact they don't even give you face rags, they only give you one body towel per person, and one hand towel per person). We brought our own face rags, as well as 3M hooks to hang the rags and towels, which I recommend doing. There's only a couple inches of counter space in the bathroom, and lighting is terrible. The blow dryer they included was actually not bad, it had a lot of power. Another reason I booked this hotel was because it sounded like it was walking distance to a lot of things, or minimally, close to the metro station. That was also accurate. It was super close to the Champs Elysees (basically a 5 minute, 2 block walk, if that). And the metro station was only a 2 minute walk away. You could technically walk to the Louvre and Eiffel Tower if you felt like it, but google maps told us those walks would take a little over a half hour, so we took an Uber. I think the walk probably would have been more than 30 minutes, given the Uber rides took 10-15 min and were always less than €20. Taxis are more popular here than Uber, but as an English speaking tourist, Uber was a lifesaver. For a taxi, you have to call, which means you need to speak French, and you also need a phone that allows international calling. The one time we tried to take a taxi, we asked the front desk to call for us, and then the taxi never showed up, so we used the Uber app to book an Uber, and did so for the rest of the trip. Uber always showed up within 5 minutes, and you didn't need to speak French to tell them where you were going, because the app already tells them. Highly recommend using Uber here even though Taxi's seem to dominate. We used the metro only 1 time, and that was to get to Versailles (you take the metro to another station, then have to walk across the street to catch the RER-C that gets you to Versailles). That turned out to be super easy, but you should give yourself an extra 15 minutes to figure it out. The front desk at the hotel gave us the directions, and then showed us the app to download that would give us all the metro directions. It's called "Bonjour RATP." That was really helpful. One more thing that I really appreciate about the customer service from this hotel was that when I was in Italy prior to arriving in Paris, my flight was cancelled due to an air traffic control strike. The only way the airline could guarantee I would get to Paris within the week was to go a day earlier than planned. I was able to call the hotel, and they were able to get me into a room for the extra night at the same rate that I had booked the rest of my stay for. Everyone at the front desk was made aware of the early arrival, and the need to change rooms after that first night, and they were very helpful to me with this. I was really relieved because I wasn't sure how I was going to figure out where to go otherwise. The customer service here was really great! I would 100% stay here again if coming to Paris and as an American tourist who unfortunately can't speak any language besides English, I was super thankful to find a place to stay that was able to help me find my way around. It was comfortable and convenient, and it was in an area that I felt safe walking in at night.…
The hotel is in a very nice location, not far from the Louvre or the Arc de Triomphe, and just blocks off the Champs Elysees, and close to metro station. Hotel has a nice breakfast and complimentary snacks and soft drinks in the afternoon, and complimentary water and juice and soft drinks in the room. Nice antique elevator, and very helpful and friendly staff. Special thank you to Amin who was very patient and helpful to two first time visitors to Paris. Would stay again
