“The staff have become like family & make this lovely hotel our favorite.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

We have stayed at this lovely little hotel on two different trips to Paris and have fallen in love with the friendly and professional staff there. From the wonderful people at the front desk (e.g. Dominique, Victor, Crystal and others) to the kind young man who helps us with our luggage and other needs (Sudhat) to our sweet housekeeper and the friendly people who served our breakfast, we truly feel that we have made lifelong friends at the Elysees Union Hotel. We will keep going back as long as we are able to travel and will never stay at any other hotel in Paris. We have traveled extensively all over the world and have never met finer people anyplace. The facilities are also very nice and you can see the Eiffel Tower from the front door of the hotel. Perfect location too. This is quite simply our favorite hotel with our favorite people working there.

We were looking forward to our stay but after we gave the credit card number the booking confirmation came up with a new condition that we would have to pay the first night up front.
This is alien to me, everywhere I've travelled one night is only charged when there is a no show. We also questioned the amount of the entire stay being due as soon as we arrive.
Instead of referring me to the manager the contact at the hotel decided to cancel our booking. We never found out who the manager was.
We chose the hotel because of the excellent reviews but I have to advise other travellers of the unprofessional way our concerns were handled.

My husband and i were there from 6th to 11th Sept 2009. The location is fantastic. 10 minute walk from Eiffel tower on one side and from L'arc de triomphe and champs elysee on the other.
Close to two metro stops Kleber and Etoile Champs Elysee
Safe area in the night
Room very small but comfortable (cant expect bigger in Paris at this price). Hot running water and ac. No safe.
24 hr reception and elevator
Hotel staff very helpful and speak good english
Breakfast was strictly ok
We strongly recommend this hotel if you want to be in the heart of the touristy parts
Tip: There is a butcher's shop/small store opposite the hotel (in the same lane) which stocks water and sodas (@ cheap prices)
The area also has lots of cafe, restaurants at mid range prices.

Like all hotels in Paris, rooms are small but in this hotel they are ok. the hotel is very clean and the very friendly staff are always on hand to help you with any issues you may have, be it what metro lines or busses you need to take, restraunts or taxi`s. The location of the hotel is verry good , when you come out of the hotel and look to your left you can see about 80% ot the Eiffel Tower. A 5 minute walk one way and you are at the Arc de Triomphe, A 5 minute walk the other way and you are at the Trocadero ( The view of the Eiffel Tower from here at night is a must see). We ended every night with a couple of drink at the bar in the hotel which was priced alot cheaper than the cafe`s at €13.50 for two vodka and cokes. We enjoyed our stay.

This was an absolutely fab hotel. Ideally positioned and totally french! Would certainly stay there again if I had the chance to visit Paris again. Our room was lovely overlooking courtyard where you could have your breakfast.

was in paris for 4 days with my wife on a holiday. Had an extremely comfortable stay here . The rooms were small but really well done up. Bathroom was clean. The hotel staff was also friendly. They do serve breakfast which includes breads tea coffee chocolat , and fruits. The location of the hotel is awsome. close to Eiffel tower & a 5 min walk away from Avenue des Champs-Élysées. The hotel is also close to metro stop boissiere from where one can reach all other famous tourist destinations in paris within 15 minutes. All in all a great hotel to stay in paris

  • Liked — The location, well done up rooms, and above all fitted in my budget
  • Disliked — the complimentary breakfast did get monotonous. Would like to see some variety.

The hotel was lovely and the staff were very friendly and obliging, the location was very handy as it is only a 15 min walk to the Eiffel Tower and 5 mins to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.
The room was small and although it had a mini bar, there were no coffee or tea making facilities. We were grateful of the airconditioning as it was quite warm during our stay.
