We stayed at the Etoile for two nights in April in the room that is shown on their web sight. It was everything we hoped it would be. It was an absolutely wonderful room. The views of the Arc de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower are absolutely spectacular. The room was open, airy and romantic. Our schedule did not allow... More

This was a lovely little boutique hotel with great location within a very short walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs d'Elysees. We had a room on the 2nd floor which was small, but nicely appointed and very comfortable beds with cozy comforters and a lovely view on the Rue Carnot just off the Arc. Convenient to... More

I am now at this hotel and to be honest until now we haven't got a good stay. First of all, we booked a higher floor when we booked very early but they put us in 3rd floor room. Second, we had to wait 20 min for the room to be ready and when we checked in it smelled so... More

Hotel is updated and as it appears in photos. Great location with a view of the Arc de triomphe which leads onto Champs-Elysees (about 5 minute walk). Staff were incredibly friendly, helpful with directions and printing boarding passes, we could attempt French, they would tease us (as they should) correct us or many times understood us. We were in room... More

The Hotel is situated opposite the Charles De Gaulle Metro/RER station, literally 30 metres, which is great for visiting the Eiffel Tower and other attractions. The Champs Elyses is a five minute walk. The staff were all really lovely and friendly, very good English spoken and incredibly helpful. Our room was spacious and airy with a view of the Arc...

I really wanted to love this hotel- mostly because we decided to spend the last 3 days of our 11 day trip in Paris and celebrated our 15 year anniversary our 2nd night there. I didn't realize when I booked our room that none of the standard rooms (with a queen bed) have the updated furnishings so we were put... More

It was my first time here and the rooms are truly lovely and very spacious, not what you expect in Europe. My room was very quiet and had a "courtyard" view though that was an exaggeration since it was about a 6 foot square of artificial turf. The room was beautifully appointed but I did think the bed was hard.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
