Hotel Félicien by Elegancia

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is near Pont Mirabeau in the 16th arrondisement. It is outside of tourist zone: no major sights within walking distance. I was here for meetings at the OECD, and that was a 25-minute walk away. Each floor has a color theme, and I was on the Ruby floor, and had a very red room (which I find cheapish looking). The room was small, but the shower was a comfortable size. There are reading lights by the bed, and back lighting behind the bed and in the bathroom that served as nice night lights. My sink was not draining well, but as soon as I told the front desk, it was promptly fixed. There is a refrigerator in the room, and 2-3 supermarkets within 5-minute walk. If you bring back a bottle of wine from outside, the friendly bartender would happily open it for you. Not many good restaurants within easy walking distance though. The closest metro is about 10-minute walk away.

A hotel enjoyable to stay while in Paris. Pleasant stay, with friendly staff and a nice breakfast. Close to major landmarks and tourist spots to visit. A city worth visiting with great sceneries, landmarks, restaurants etc.

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed here for a romantic city break and I can't recommend this hotel enough. The decor and interior was beautiful- very modern and stylish. There was also a plunge pool/jacuzzi with a steam room and sauna (we were the only two people in there which was an added bonus). I had requested a room high up with a balcony and we were given just that. The room size was good for European standards and the hotel was small but cosy (I find most hotels in Paris are more "boutique" style hotels which adds to the chic-ness!). The area was also good- a few restaurants nearby and the Eiffel Tower was about a 25 minute walk which was a pleasant, scenic route along the river Seine. The staff were friendly, helpful and lovely. The temperature of the plunge pool/jacuzzi was a little bit on the cold side, would have been even better if it was slightly warmer, although again, this may not bother the majority of people, but from a personal point this was literally the only ever so slight complaint I had. Thank you for a fabulous stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel and return again.

The hotel has exceptionally friendly staff which are the reason I give it five stars despite not being perfect on other ways. I hope the staff are paid a little more to reflect this. They helped us by printing station names so we could try the metro and also did eventually sort better firmer cushions for us- so they did everything they possibly could. We were warned that French staff in hotels and restaurants would be rude (we are English)but literally none were rude - far from it. As for people marking down for the location - wow, really? Did you book blind or not do your own research beforehand? That’s your issue and reflects your ignorance ... nothing else - trip advisor should remove those. The hotel has comfy compact rooms. A bath would be nice but we had an awesome big raindrop shower. Yes some water leaked but nothing a towel couldn’t handle. The hotel has a good feel, a nice layout and top quality furniture and fixings - yes they are starting to show their age and water marks etc in shower so it’s due an update but for our price perfectly acceptable and still clean. One big negative is that the swimming pool is tiny making it very awkward if just one couple is in there. Also not obvious how to change there if you can? Very awkward using lifts in bathrobes but we did see some couples brave it... if you’re confident there’s a swimming pool but if you’re not then really it’s unusable. This was a reason we chose the hotel so it was very disappointing. Also the spa seemed to be closed a lot and on Saturday they’d obviously rented out the small bar/ lounge area to an event - so we couldn’t use it. It was really heaving with a fashion event? I suggest the hotel compares that income with the negative impact on the hotel customers. The location: you get what you pay for- it’s quiet. Perfect for us because we don’t need lots of local bars cafes etc. We also feel like we found more authentic restaurants full of locals due to this - tripadvisor still brings up plenty of walkable options. But for a livelier romantic get away going to bars every evening we recommend you look to another region of Paris - lots of guides online. Do not mark the hotel down because you’re too ignorant to research this yourself!

Hotel was nice but not for 4 stars They have issues with de design or with the furniture because it was looking old and used . The Hotel has a good position for city centrum . For 2 night was good tks

Holidays, the wifi in the hotel is very slow, they do not change the towels, this is a motel not a hotel, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, this is literally apartments converted to a hotel👎🏽

Convenient to shopping and sightseeing. The room was a decent size by Parisian standards, but the sheets were dirty. Breakfast was a step up from other four-star properties. There was a wide selection, including fresh fruit. There is a fantastic whirlpool and hammam in the basement. Unfortunately, these were often occupied by couples, so it was easy to feel that you one was intruding. The staff were all cheerful. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back, but competition is fierce in Paris. There are a lot of good choices. Although competitive, I’m not sure that the Félicien has the best value for money.

Stayed in the hotel in early December If you like walking it's a great location - 5 minutes from the rive seine - on a map look for the statue de la liberte - from where you can get s boat down the river - we walked to all the main tourist points from the hotel and returned very tired - the hotel is set in a mainly residential area so at night there is only a couple of bars and restaurants - we were the only tourists which was evidenced by the waiters asking where we were from etc - but that made it special - it felt abroad ! And with the added benefit of drinks half price of the more tourist areas - I can't really comment on price as you need to keep it in perspective - we had a room, a sitting area and hot tub with access to the spa - I imagine 15 minutes closer to the centre this would be out of our price range We didn't order breakfast which was a good result as was a lovely bakery on the corner where a coffee and croissant was €3 - great result Staff were lovely and their English was very good and far better than my French Bath robes were also great Negatives for me The shower ! I'd read other reports about the room flooding as the shower is broken and won't stay in place - yep we also soaked everything The main one was I ordered flowers for my arrival for my wife - I was charged €60 for about 15 roses that were just left on the bed - looking very much like supermarket flowers - even had to put them in the glass from the room as no other way to put them in water - irony is there is a beautiful florist about 50m from the hotel and great bouquets for €20 So yes a god hotel in a residential area but I wouldn't pay for flowers or breakfast

Very poor hotel not with the price staff rude useless! Spa crap dirty rooms dirty! Noisy! Things to do nothing round there breakfast 18pound per person nothing there cleaning of room they obviously do t know how to use a hover! As I went out and something on he floor that I knew was there was still there after cleaning was meant to of been carried out hotel small bar dirty would not recommend this hotel at all to anybody would rather stayed in caravan.

I was very disappointed by this hotel at all levels: staff, service and cleanliness (the toilet hadn't been properly cleaned!). Neither the hammam nor the sauna were working. I told reception that the stay was terrible value for money upon checkout and was offered an hour of privatisation of the spa. I told them I wasn't interested in this as I wasn't planning on coming back and they didn't offer anything else. I honestly would not recommend this hotel and will not go back. There are much better places to stay in Paris for that price.
