“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

My teenage duaghter and I have just spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel. The 7th floor room was small (as most are in Paris) but immaculate, with a nice bathroom, and had a fantastic view of the Arc de Triomphe, and also the top of the Eiffel Tower. Magical is all that I can say.
What sets this hotel apart from others is the staff. They were wonderful - polite and helpful, interested in our trip and nothing was too much trouble. The service was fantastic without being intrusive.
The breakfasts were fab. The cooked breakfast was not to our taste, but that is because we are a bit fussy, and the fruit, yoghut, pastries, bread, ham and cheese more than made up for that. We also had an excellent dinner at the Radisson Metroplitan (as the restaurant in our hotel was not open in the evening at weekend), with taxis arranged.
I loved this hotel and will be back. I would recomend it to anyone for it's excellent location, lovely rooms, fantastic breakfasts and most of all, its' wonderful employees. Thank you to you all

Room Tip: The views from the 7th floor at the front cannot be rivalled

The hotel has an excellent location for those wishing to explore Paris. We had a balcony room on the 7th floor; this allowed us direct views of the Arc de Triomphe which at night are amazing. We also had a view of the Eiffel Tower peering out over the buildings, again an amazing sight at night. The location of the hotel is also close to the metro allowing access to all of Paris. For those wishing to be above ground, the walk to the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and all other sights is very easy and manageable.
The service staff were also first class, they were more than accommodating to those of us who do not speak French (dispel the myth that they hate English speakers). All our needs and queries were met with a positive attitude and quick response. The room was spacious and well appointed, we were fortunate to have a separate bath and shower. The bath was also spacious and had a gradual incline at the end, allowing for great back support when just soaking in the tub.
All in all, a fabulous experience, our sincere thanks to the General Manager and her staff for the great stay.

Brilliant hotel in an excellent location. Could not fault the staff. Only downside is next room to us had a bit of a party from 3am till 6am both days we were there. To be fair I did not complain to reception so not their fault but the other room very noisy.
Had a business class room so full English breakfast was included. The cooked breakfast was poor but you did get fruit, cereal, croissants, orange juice and tea or coffee.
If I went back to Paris would definitely still in this hotel.
Location and brilliant staff are the the best parts.
Paris is a beautiful place but on the whole the people of Paris I found to be rather rude and arrogant (not the hotel staff).

Overview: This was a great hotel located right off the side from the Arc de Triumph. You can see the Arc from from the front of the hotel. Its a small hotel nestled between buildings with 7 floors and 6 rooms on each floor. Surprisingly, the rooms were very spacious. The rooms were very clean and I cannot say enough about the staff. Every single person we encountered was extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us.

Location:
As stated earlier, you are right down the street from a main tourist attraction and its just a few min walk to the main Champs Elysee strip. Across the Champs Elysee is the Metro entrance (well there are several of them) and you are located on line 1 and 6. From line 1 you can get directly across the city center in a few stops, to the Lourve. From line 6 you can get directly to the Eiffle Tower, no transfers are needed. Depending which way you are facing by the Metra station, you can even see the Eiffle Tower.

Of course, the area itself is fully for tourists. Plenty of shopping and more pricey places for food but those are easily accessible and you can hop on the metra to get anywhere else you want (unless you don't mind a bit of a hike walking to the rest of the city. The rest of the tourist spots are spread around the city so being close to a metra is key in my opinion.

Room:
We had a room on the 6th floor facing the bank. The room was very spacious and the bathroom had a shower and separate bath. It was much larger then what I have been use to for European hotels. They even had a nespresso machine for my morning coffee. There was a fully stocked, though overpriced mini bar (water was 6 Euro for a small bottle) but a few buildings down is a store where you can buy anything you would want.

Staff:
The best part about this hotel was the staff. They were very friendly and pointed out everything we needed to see and gave clear directions. When we asked how to find a few restaurants that we had been recommended too, they always called the restaurant for us to make sure it was open and made reservations for us without us even asking. In addition to that, they would even google map it for us (as the tourist maps were missing the small side streets) and printed out better maps for us. I cannot say enough about all the staff as we bugged all of them at different times and each was friendlier then the next.

Getting there:

We arrived late at night to CGD so took a cab which was about 52 Euro. I don't recommend the cab unless you don't mind the price. The cab is at the north west part of the city while the hotel is pretty far east. You can take the metro though it takes anywhere between an hour to an hour and a half and get off at Charles de Gaulle Etoile stop where you then pop up by the Arc de Triumph. The hotel is down the road from there. It would be one transfer from the airport if you take the local train, switching at the city center. We bought a two day pass between all the zones for about 32-37 Euro which was well worth it. Be advised that the trains in France can be a bit.. well.. sketchy. Depending on the line you use the trains can be a bit worn looking, and for some, you need to physically open the door handles or push a button so don't stand there expecting them all to open.

I would definitely stay here again the next time I come back to Paris, for work or for fun. I did not eat at the restaurant or have any drinks from the bar as there were too many other places near by so I can't comment on those.

Great hotel, great staff and great location!

This hotel is a small boutique hotel in a great location. Right next to the Arc De Triumph and a block away from the Camps Elysee. You can walk to Eiffel tower as well, about 15-20 minute walk. The staff was cordial and friendly. The only problem I had was the bed . I asked for a king which I got, but when I went to sleep I realized it was 2 twins in one frame. Very uncomfortable especially in the middle. It was reasonable priced considering the location. No breakfast included in my package. The room was somewhat small but not to European standards but the bathroom was a generous size and elegant. I would stay again and maybe just ask for a room with a nicer bed.

Dear Valued Guest,

I thank you for your feedback, indeed most of our king size beds are called 'zip &link' it is so to allow flexibility in terms of twins and doubles. We will note on your profile that you prefer a one mattress bed for your next stay.

Sincerely
Roula Samaha

Great location - right next to the Arc de Triomphe and a road away from the Champs Elysee. Actual hotel was nice enough. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Somewhat old though - the mirrors hadn't been cleaned so very spotty. The bathtub could use a bit of cleaning - especially the tiles around it. Biggest issue was the lack of thick walls/ceilings - noise levels from other rooms were high. Food - nothing notable. Overall, Average.

When looking at the different Radisson choices in Paris, based on the location alone I chose this property. I also liked the boutique feel of the hotel. Arriving on an early morning flight from Asia, I was surprised that a room was ready when I arrived at the hotel. I was upgraded to a business class room. The room was a good size for Paris, and featured a bed as well as a sitting area with two chairs and a table. The bathroom was large and featured a tub as well as shower. The hotel also delivered an evening snack of sweets - which was a nice touch. I liked the nespresso coffee machine in the room, but, found it easier to just order a coffee downstairs at the bar ( also free). The wifi worked great and the staff were all friendly. The location can't be beat. The metro is right outside the hotel ( well less than 2 min walk). I took the RER from the airport, knowing that during morning rush hour it would be quicker than the bus.It is easy enough RER B, to chalet les halles and transfer to RER A and get off at Charles de Gualle Etoile.
