The Hotel Facilities
This luxury 4 star Paris hotel has
all the main things you would expect such as a 24 hour reception and room service, along
with the renowned Golden Keys concierge service to make your stay a most memorable
Even though the Hotel Balzac is located in the centre of Paris, quite surprisingly
there is actually on site secure parking available, so you can just pull up at the hotel
hop out, let the porter take your luggage, hand over the keys and your car will be parked
for you by the hotel chauffeur. Now that is what you call service from the minute
you arrive! However, you do have to make sure you book a space when making your
reservation and this is a cost of 25 per day, which is in fact very good value.
The dining room and drawing room areas of this hotel make up the elegant and intimate feel
with lots natural light coming in from the glass ceiling atrium with a beautiful hanging
garden as a backdrop, which really make you feel like the outside is coming in.
The long granite bar with high stools, dark velvet upholstery and soft lighting make this
area an intimate and elegant place along with the lounge area that has lovely comfortable
sofas where you can just relax, meet up with friends or perhaps enjoy a cocktail.
The Hotel Balzac has an award winning gourmet restaurant called the Pierre Gagnaire where
you can experience some unusual and innovative dishes by a very talented chef and enjoy
lunch, dinner or a tasting menu, but this is a very popular place to eat out in Paris,
so even if you are staying at the hotel, you would need to make a dinner reservation.
However, if more traditional and classic French cuisine in a traditional Art deco style
setting with its exquisite walnut panelling, is more what you had in mind for a truly
romantic dining experience, then a visit across the road to the sister hotel called the Hotel
de Vigny and a meal at Le Baretto, whether it be for lunch or dinner has got to be on
your list of things to do.
There are also three VIP conference rooms available for private dinners, business lunches,
boardroom meetings, etc that also have state of the art technology such as plasma screens,
and each meeting room can accommodate up to a maximum of 10 people.
Hotel Room Facilities
There are a total of 57 rooms and 13 Suites available at the Hotel Balzac and any of the
rooms from the third floor up have a view of the Eiffel Tower.
The décor utilises refined colour combinations, subtle tones and soft lighting along with
luxurious materials and state of the art technology to make each hotel room a place of
comfort and relaxation.
Each hotel room has a flat screen LCD TV with Cable TV, a DVD player, internet access,
mini bar and personal safe along with a marble bathroom.
The Superior rooms at the Hotel Balzac have a seating area, whereas the Deluxe rooms are
larger and also have a larger seating area and a separate bath and shower.
The Junior Suites have a beautiful oak floored entrance and a separate sitting room, plus
a dressing room and welcome products are also provided, yet the Corner Suites are even
larger and having a dining area as well.
The Presidential Suite is like being at home with a large lounge and dining room
completely separate to the bedroom and has a vast amount of space for relaxation, but the
real luxury comes with the Royal Suite that is around 90 metres squared and also features
a terrace with absolutely stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.
Yet if you want the ultimate in luxury and wish to splash out then opting for the Rooftop
Penthouse is the perfect answer. It means that you get the whole top floor of the
Hotel Balzac to yourself and your companions, which is basically the Royal Suite and the
Presidential Suite combined, for a truly unforgettable experience.
