“Would highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I would highly recommend this hotel to even the pickiest of people.
I booked this at the last minute as a romantic getaway for our anniversary and we were very very happy with the experience and can't wait to visit again.
The best bits were:
- Extremely warm and friendly staff (especially the reception staff of which we met 3)
- Lovely cosy and stylish room and ensuite bathroom (we booked the deluxe room)
- Very good breakfast and coffee
- Assistance with booking cheaper transit to the airport on our return
- Free sandwiches anytime of the day or night (we only took advantage of this twice because we forgot, but it is very handy as an exhausted tourist!)
- perfect location 2 mins walk (slightly uphill) to the Arc De Triomph and Metro and supermarket

The bad bits are practically non-existent, but if i had to be picky i would say:
- the rooms were a little too warm (but easily solved by opening windows although we did get a mosquito in the room once)
- the room service maids made up our room even though we displayed the sign on the door for them not too (not such a big deal, only if you're really paranoid about staff not entering your room. We felt as though the staff were very trustworthy so this wasn't an issue).
- possibly a bit pricey but all of Paris is expensive accommodation wise, so we were very happy with the value we got

I need to made special mention of the receptionists in particular as they were lovely even at 4:30am when we were checking out. Couldn't have been more friendly, efficient and caring!

10 minutes walking distance from the "Arc de Triomphe", near to restaurants and supermarket. The train station to Versailles chateu and the metro staion in only 5 minutes away (walk) and it's also near to Porte Maillot (the place where the transfer buses from Beauvais airport stop). Very quiet zone. Super friendly staff. Thank you very much!

The Hotel Etoile Saint-Ferdinand is adorable, and every member of its staff was warm and welcoming to these first-time visitors to Paris. Even though many of my friends recommended I stay in a different arrondissement to get a more 'quaint' experience, I can't think of any place that could have been quainter, even though the location is in a slightly more commercial area than some others. I would and will recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stay here quite often on business as it is perfectly located for our office in Paris. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is typical of Paris (so do not expect the rooms to be particularly large), but the hotel is always clean and tidy. Restyling is required to bring some of the facilities more up to date, but when in Paris you do not spend much time (awake) in your room.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter - nothing to do with the hotel per se, but the old building is flanked on...

Sharing close milestone birthdays, my Mother and I took a trip to Europe which culminated in 3 days in Paris. The staff and accommodations of the Etoile Saint Ferdinand were outstanding. While the room is small compared to US standards, it lacked nothing. We had all the ecoutrements needed for two traveling gals. The staff was exemplary in service and courtesy.
I would stay no where else on a return trip to Paris.

Room Tip: This is not a room sized for entertaining, but rather relaxing, sleeping and changing.

We moved from another large hotel to Hotel Etoile saint-ferdinand after our flight was cancelled due to hurricane Sandy. We were "stranded" in Paris until the airlines would start operating again. My mom and I were pleasantly surprised with how genuinely caring and accomodating the hotel staff was regarding our situation. When we were able to book a flight home, the front desk staff called us a cab for the next morning and prepared a boxed lunch to take with us on the flight.

After staying in the larger,more expensive hotel that did not include free breakfast or internet (this was for business), it was so nice to arrive at this reasonably priced,clean,and friendly hotel with the free offerings...in Paris!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Merci bien!

This hotel is perfect for solo travellers who like peace and quite in a nice area balanced with convenience and great service!

- The hotel is one block from Metro line 1 - which is prefect for lots of the main attractions in Paris. The street its self is relatively quiet - ensuring a good night's sleep

- The hotel is in a nice (and cute) and safe neighbourhood. There are plentry of non-touristy restaurants, cafes, boulangaries, fromagargies around and I always felt safe in the area (as a female travelling alone)

- The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful, the complimentary breakfast was great and the room was cosy (this is Paris!) but comfy and clean!

Would definitely stay here again! (Especially after two rather unfortunate experiences with accommodation in Paris)

Thank you!
