“Very comfortable hotel 1 min walk from Metro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I stayed here for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room was quite small but I was expecting that. The staircases are narrow and the elevators are small so that's something to think about when booking a room. Higher rooms are less noisy but it's quite a trek to get there, as you have to change elevators at the 3rd floor to get to the 4th and 5th floors. I usually just took the stairs.

They offer free wifi and and a buffet breakfast for 16 euros in their dining room, but I would avoid that and walk to a patisserie for a much cheaper breakfast. This hotel is near the end of the 3 Metro line but it's just a short trip to the center of Paris. There is a nice sushi place a couple of steps away from the hotel plus tons of nice bistros close by.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are less noisy but it's quite a trek to get there, as you have to change elevators...

Positives:

* clean fresh decor and rooms
* location is very close to cafes and bistros - feels very Parisiene
* location is very close to the metro and has bike borrow station outside (bring helmets - Parisiens don't but better safe esp on unknown city roads, on the wrong side and often on cobbles)
* super shower

Negative
* Room was fine for 1 but would be tight for 2 with more than lightest luggage

Room Tip: Back is quiet

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The Courcelles Etoile is a decent hotel in the 17th arrondissent of Paris which merits overall its 3 star rating (often not the case in France where the system of classment is very unreliable). The hotel is close to the number 3 Metro line so all of Paris is within a 20-30 min ride. The area around the hotel, whilst much quiter than more central areas of Paris, has quite a few brasseries and restaurants, some of which are open very late. Usually it is possible to find a double room (except during the "periode de salons") for around 120 euros. If possible ask for a room that is on one of the higher floors or does not face the street (the sound proofing on the windows is reasonabley good but light sleepers might be disturbed on the lower floors).

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not on the street side.

This little boutique hotel was a gem at the price. We had friendly service from the staff, and it was a clean and tidy place. The room was small but fine, with attractive modern decor. From here we were able to walk in the snow to l'arc de Triomphe and the Champs. Next door is the Metro and also a quaint cafe. Local eateries are decent too. All in all it was a great place to be based for the weekend we were there.

Located nr a metro, Paris is easy to access. it's not the most central of locations but the surrounding area is also lovely.

room was very small, but maybe thats what you get in a city? staff more than helpful, keen to assist at all times.

breakfast not included, so we went out while sight seeing.

overall a great nights sleep, comfy bed and loved the jacuzzi bath.

I had a very pleasant 1 nights stay for business and found myself wishing I was here as a tourist!
As everyone says the hotel is very close to Arc de Triomphe and is in a residential area that feels Parisienne. My room was at the top and back of the hotel...a slightly strange corridor arrangement on this top floor but a lift all the way up at least. The room looked straight over to a residential block, again typical Paris, and the view down the street was nice as the sun set. I love hotels that let you open the windows properly.
The room was light and airy, bright modern furniture but not the cookie-cutter minimalist that so many hotels are guilty of choosing. The bathroom was large and well fitted, apart from needing a plug in the sink. Everything was clean. Free wifi.
The hotel does a complimentary lunch bag for day trippers and offers an evening aperitif to guests.
My only, minor, criticism is the breakfast was disappointing. The breakfast bar was a bit awkward with only 2-3 guests trying to help themselves and the choice was a bit...well, boring.
Overall a good choice and I believe excellent value for Paris.

Room Tip: A high level back room is what I would take again. Quiet and a nice view.
