“"lovely"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

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.

Room Tip: We had 407, Privilege Double on a corner with view of Arc de Triomphe - Great views

We spent three wonderful nights at this hotel, and would return again without hesitation. The view from the window of the Arc De Triomphe and Eiffel Tower was spectacular day or night, and the central location was ideal for seeing the sights of this beautiful city. Our suite was very clean and spacious, and the continental style breakfast catered for a variety of tastes. The staff were helpful and friendly. Overall, I can't recommend this hotel enough if you want to visit Paris.

The man at the front desk enjoys being extremely passive aggressive. But other than that the rest of the staff is nice. And the rooms are clean. OUTSTANDING LOCATION (next to the metro, right down the block from the ARCH) FYI even courtyard views can see the arch. Also around the best bakery and some restaurants. Couldn't have asked for a better location.

Hotel was a great location and convenient to all forms of transportation. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room and other accomodations were very clean and upscale. Elevators were suprisingly small but not much of an inconvenience.

The only pitfall was the wi-fi connection. However, from the lobby we had no issues.

Room Tip: Ask for exterior room with balcony if possible.

I loved this hotel. Firstly I had an amazing view of the arc de triomphe without paying an arm and a leg and my room was spacious, clean, comfortable and modern with a wonderful bathroom and 'real' tub.
The hotel is in a great location and the metro is very close. The hotel staff were very nice, I only had one night there but would definitely stay there again when in Paris. The only reason I didn't rate the hotel a five was the poor service in the hotel restaurant. The food was good but the wait staff seemed overwhelmed and service was very slow.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the arc de triomphe.

Our three night stay in October was enjoyable. The hotel is excellently situated for sightseeings and transportation (RER, Air France bus shuttle, Metro). We had a room on the third floor and was beautifull. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
