I had nothing to complain as we arrived around 10-11AM and the concierge greeted us with a smile and offered us tea or coffee. The room was spacious for European size and very modern. The amenities are just completed with glasses for wine too! The area itself is a winner for me as it is near Arch du Trioumphe and the metro and RER line so we can access anywhere. However, I had a really bad experience during check in when two of the receptionists literally ignored me when I was asking about any rooms available for early check-in and gave it to a woman who arrived 10 minutes later than us. I was disappointed with the rude attitudes and no further explanation about the key arrangement. Other than that, I have no other problems during our stay.

Our family trips to Paris for the past 10 years have been at the Splendid Etoile. In fact we always ask for the same room with a view of the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower. The room has a sitting room with fireplace and a small refrigerator. The bathroom is updated with modern conveniences, robes & slippers. The hotel is literally next to the Arc and Metro in front of the hotel. We realize there are many other hotels to select from but the Splendid staff make you feel like your at home. The hotel offers breakfast for a bit extra, unless you select a room type that included breakfast. Also worth noting is the location of the airport shuttle across the street, for those wanting that option. They also have a small business center in case you need to print out tickets or check in for your flight. I highly recommend this hotel in Paris.

Having visited Paris many times and staying in different places, I booked this hotel due to its proximity to various Metro lines. After arriving at the hotel at about 10:30am, one of our 2 rooms was available to check into immediately. The size of the rooms is incredibly generous given Paris standards. The rooms are clean and very well-equipped. I’d booked a balcony room and the views were absolutely mind blowing. The hotel staff are incredibly friendly, polite and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be staying here again. Absolutely amazing.

We arrived at Hotel Splendid Etoile around 19:00 on December 22, 2019. I was a bit surprised at how small the lobby was, but it was certainly adequate for the purpose and handsomely furnished, and the concierge Abdul was warmly friendly and escorted us immediately to our room. We were given a sixth floor room that was surprisingly spacious, given the generally small size of hotel rooms in Paris, and ours looked out over the grand boulevard on the other side of the hotel in a magnificent panoramic view, by far the best I have ever had in a hotel anywhere in Europe or the U.S. The Arc de Triomphe dominated the center right of the landscape, while the magnificent old buildings of Paris swept away to the left. Far below people were walking, and the lights of the Champs Elysee glimmered beyond the Arc. It was absolutely like something out of a film, and we would leave the window open at night to get not only the sounds of the street but the cold night air (hotels in Europe are always rather warm for us). The bed was firm, clean and comfortable, and there were plenty of places to store our luggage and clothing. The bathroom was spacious and fairly easy to use, and the modern electrical system worked perfectly. Most of all, I really cannot overpraise Farouq, the head concierge, and Abdul. They were continually helpful, frequently sharing a joke or anecdote with us, and Farouq knew Paris like the back of his hand, steering us to an excellent but fairly low cost restaurant nearby (Le Hide) and helping us greatly us with advice of all kinds. I was genuinely sorry to say good bye to the staff when we left, and when and if we return to Paris (finances are the challenge at this point), we will surely stay at Hotel Splendid Etoile again. Thank you Farouq and Abdul for a wonderful "home" in the City of Lights!
