“Value for money, service with a smile but needs a facelift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Stayed during a business trip: centrally located, very clean and friendly, staff helpful with directions etc. and for €157 fantastic value. Rooms very quiet. Could use new carpets and fittings though.

The service is excellent, room exceptionally clean with updated bathroom. DJamel, the hotel manager is wonderful and everything you would expect of the person in charge guiding a super staff. It is warm, cozy with an added tea time at the end of a busy day. Yes, the rooms are not huge, and no dresser for some clothes, but minor problem. Highly recommend because there will simply be no regrets!

Room Tip: Facing the hotel, rooms on the left side may have less noise.

This hotel is staffed by lovely people. The rooms are comfortable, if small but the location is convenient. The complimentary breakfast and buffet at dinner time was thoroughly appreciated.
Two minor issues-when we stayed they were having problem with their heating And the rooms were very hot. Also the shuttle they recommended to the airport was a horror, driver was rude, dangerous driver who tried to leave while one of my group was out of the shuttle to let a new person. Despite thatI would highly recommend to stay and would stay agai

Good location, good service. I didn't appreciate the recommendations they gave for restaurants though. The buffet in the afternoon is nice because you arrive tired and hungry after walking the whole day. My room was very nice and spacious, but l had payed more because of the baby. My brother had a room that was a lot smaller and noisier in front of the elevator. I would go back there for a short stay.

Thank you for your review posted on trip advisor during your stay at the Champs Elysées Friedland hotel. .
We are glad that you appreciated the tea time buffet which is part of our offer "all for you". when a guest reserves on our website or directly, the breakfast, a glass of champagne, the Wi-Fi, the minibar(soft drinks),the tea time buffet are offered.
In your case, for your confort, you were in a superior room (need space for the child's cot), and you brother was in a standard room which is smaller than a superior room.
I understand that his room was a little bit noiser than yours because it was near the lift (problem in every hotel).
We are looking forward to welcoming you again for your next trip in Paris.

The hotel is very good: clean, good breakfast, great location close to arc du triomphe.
The cons; no cabinets in the room, so I needed to keep my clothes inside my suitcase, and also the air conditioning wasn't working
The overall impression of this hotel is very good despite that.

Thank you for your review posted on Trip advisor about your stay at the champs Elysées Friedland hotel.
We are glad that you appreciated our buffet breakfast. thanks for your feed-back concerning the cleaness of our rooms ,this last point is primordial to us, our chambermaids do the best to make your stay more confortable and make yourself at home.
All our rooms are furnished with a maximum of confort (hair-dryer, desk, cupboard, luggage rack,
air conditionning etc...).
Concerning your request about the air conditionning, the month of May has been very cold and rainy for many years (15, 18 degrees Celsius) so the air conditionning was not available at this time.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you in Paris with a better weather in our hotel Champs Elysées Friedland.

We booked this hotel because we had been invited to a party which was taking place nearby. The hotel is located about 10 minutes' walk from the Arc de Triomphe where you can catch the RER which takes you the town centre in 10 minutes.

Locationwise it is great for the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees but if you are going to Paris I would avoid that area. Several reasons:
- It's dead at night
- It's expensive
- The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees are far from the centre of Paris.

The hotel itself is okay,the rooms are comfortable though on the short side for the price that you pay (and that is the problem; you are paying for the location, which in itself is not the best if you are a tourist) and so the compromise is on the quality.

The bathroom is basic but sufficient and they have now installed air conditioning which is a blessing.

Foodwise however much improvement is needed. Breakfast is VERY basic. The cheese served is your standard cooked paste cheese which is nothing to speak of, the ham and bits are just cheap cuts, the scrambled eggs are overcooked and are basically broken down omelette rathen than nice and creamy; and the pastries are undercooked. There are some 3-star hotels which serve better breakfasts.

The hotel offers free refreshments between 5:30pm and 8pm which are basically mostly the left overs from breakfast + a few cakes. Nice gesture but again the quality is average. We had seen such free tea feature when we went to Seville last year and that was a totally different ball game. Frankly you would expect a lot better from a hotel in that area of Paris.

Otherwise the staff is very nice and friendly. It is basically a convenient hotel if you go to Paris on business or you have a reason to want to stay near the Arc de Triomphe, but if you are going as a tourist you will regret booking there. Get somewhere more central.

Excellent hotel, excellent location, excellent staff and service. The old cliché works here

You get what you pay for – Class

This hotel is at the top end of the price range but with a view of the champs-elysees from our window and transport links moments away, this is an excellent choice of hotel. They even arranged our trips for us too.

Highly recommend
