We recently spent 5 nights here. It was the first time we had been away for a few years and we were really looking forward to our trip. It exceeded our expectations. We booked hotel and travel through Eurostar and all went v smoothly. Following recommendations from others on this site I emailed staff at the hotel and requested a corner room on a higher floor with good views. They contacted me to assure me we would have a very nice room and we were not disappointed. I can recommend room 407 - great view of Arc de Triomphe (even from the bath!) and also of cafes across avenue. Staff at the hotel were very polite and obliging, only chuckling occasionally at my attempts to say 407 in French. We ate in le Pre Carre restaurant once in the evening and whilst it was not cheap (where is, in Paris?) our meal was fantastic. A simple thing, but my crème brulee was so good I may well never eat another. Seriously. Perfectly placed location for sightseeing, Metro, taxis, cafes and patisseries. Especially liked Ave Carnot - felt more real for being slightly less flash. Try the patisserie opposite the wine bar. I don't know if we'll ever be able to, but if I were returning to Paris we would happily go back to the Splendid Etoile! GREAT.
