“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with 2 girlfriends in December 2012 and even though we shared a room, it was spacious enough. It was clean and great location. Very close to the metro and all the shopping. The breakfast was basic but nice. Staff were very helpful.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Our family of 5 stayed 8 nights and we loved everything about Royal Magda. The staff - Lilly, Mila, Abradahim(?), Patricia and manager Francois and everyone else went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and that we were comfortable. We were happily surprised with chocolates on our bed when we got back on Christmas Eve and even had champagne in the lobby! We enjoyed the generous buffet breakfast served every morning. The staff was very helpful with all our needs and questions! Paris will always be one of the best vacations we've ever had thanks to everyone at Royal Magda. We'll surely stay here again the next chance we get!
P.S.: The elevator is indeed tiny but it is a very minor inconvenience. It was fun taking the stairs! Regards to everyone! - Tecsons of Cebu

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I stayed here before the renovations began as noted by the reviews. The rooms are quite small, but that's pretty standard in major European cities, especially Paris. The elevator is really small - it has to be no more than 1 square meter. Wow.

As for the noise, it's really the thin walls or whatever. You will routinely hear doors slamming in adjacent rooms. So, bring some ear plugs.

The location is great, though. Just a 5 min walk to Arc de Triomphe.

We stayed at this hotel during a 3 night visit to Paris.

The location, near the Arc de Triomph, is quite convenient for transport links but not an area in which we spent much time as there is little other than the Arc.

The hotel staff were very helpful, both when we stayed there and in responding to e-mails before our stay. All the staff seemed to speak good English.

The room was clean and rather compact, as you would expect in central Paris. Enough space to move around, but not much more. The small balcony was ok for sitting outside overlooking the street.

We didn't have any problems with noise and slept well.

Our experience at the Royal Magda Etoile was a positive one overall. The room was ok in terms of size with plenty of natural light and very clean. The furniture was also in very good condition. The location is very convenient and in walking distance from several tourist sites and shopping districts.

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. All of the staff went out of their way to make you feel at home. The front desk staff were efficient, always had a smile and went out of their way to help and advise. The lady serving on breakfast was also welcoming.

Finally and very important to us as a family, the rooms were extremely well cleaned.

The only negative is that the lift is TINY.

Would definitely stay here again.

Situated very close to the Arc de Triomphe in a small side street. Always make sure your accommodation has an elevator, this one does.
The staff where exceptional and very helpful with information about the hotel and Paris in general.
Breakfast was great (continental) and served buffet style, though they will bring you a tray to you room if you like.
Rooms are small but you are in Europe so this is what you expect, there was plenty of room for our 2 large suitcases & other hand luggage.
The bed provided a great nights sleep, it was comfy & large with 2 pillows of different sizes, perfect.
The whole place was exceptionally clean and in great condition. The bathroom was a decent size (for Europe) and the shower was positively huge by European standards with large fluffy towels.
There are many eateries close by including a McDonalds on the corner open until 2 in the morning - we didn't try this, not with all the other marvellous choices close by.
The only down side where the paper thin walls, we had 2 rooms, one for us & one for our teen sons (booked too late for a larger room). Our sons where woken in the small hours of the morning by the couple in the next room making love - Ok so it is Paris the city of love but I don't want my children listening to it. We also got to listen to our boys conversations as they where in the next room - it is amazing what you hear if they think they can't be heard :-)
Will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
