“Wonderful stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I traveled to paris for a short stay, three nights, with my husband and the baby (24 months). I found remarkable the staff. They were helpful and lovely with us. They let me use their microwave oven to heat the baby food and they also let me take milk from the kitchen. The cot was in the bedroom as requested, a nice, clean cot. The only thing I would change is that they gave us a room at the end of the corridor and there were some steps before arriving there, so it was a bit unconfortable for carrying a buggie. Anyway nothing that couldn't be easyly sorted. Breakfast was good enough and the location make it a very good election.I highly recommend.

My husband and I just spent four nights at the etoile saint Ferdinand. We had been to Paris before, and loved the hotel we had previously stayed at, so the Sf had a tall order to compete with. Everything was great, the location, staff, breakfast and the room. The room is typical of old European hotels, small but with a completely renovated bathroom, both spotlessly clean and completely refreshed each day. The wifi was fine. We ate at two of the restaurants nearby and both were great, le Madison and the saint Ferdinand. The metro is a two minute walk, the hotel staff were more than great. We will absolutely stay here again

I really liked this place. It was not too far from two metro stops, which were only a few stops from very famous points. The hotel sat on a little circle, with a cheese shop and bread shop, and restaurant to name a few shops around. The room was small and so were the hallways and elevator. But, it was perfect for us. The bathroom was immaculate and beautiful. I loved it. The decor was nice too and it was so very relaxing.

At the front desk someone was always there that spoke some English. The breakfasts were really good, the lunches were useful (although I probably would have preferred to go out).

Altogether, I would highly recommend this place. If you book directly at their website, it sometimes offers deals.

Room Tip: We had a double room, it was too twin beds pushed together.

The hotel appeared to be somewhat worn, but the room was adequate. The staff were very helpful and the hotel provided a good breakfast. The location was perfect for my wife and myself for visiting the different sights in Paris. We travelled by the metro during our stay and the hotel was situated near two metrostations (just a short walk either way). Our room was small, but adequate and quiet.

A really nice hotel, we stayed for 1 night. The rooms were larger than your typical Paris hotel, and there was fast WiFi avaliable throughout the rooms. The bathroom suite looked like it had been newly fitted. The breakfast was a bit basic, however this is typical of the cuisine and the hotel rooms were a bit noisey (you probably couldnt get up to much without your neighbour knowing). All in all though a very charming hotel situated in a quiet square within the city.

I stayed at this hotel in April of this year with my Wife and we both enjoyed it very much.

Upon checking in the staff were friendly and welcoming and as with most establishments in Paris they spoke both English and French. I had booked extras in the room such as flowers and Champagne and despite an extra charge this was well worth it as it helped create the romantic Paris atmosphere from the off. I had asked for a top floor room overlooking the city and having been given the top floor I was disappointed to find that none of the hotels rooms look over the capital, they all face another hotel.

The room was clean and tidy, however, I hope you're not scared of enclosed spaces as the lift to ge you up there was only big enough for two people and their luggage.

The bathroom was a good size and fresh towels were readily available. The breakfast each morning consisted of fresh meats and eggs as well as cereal and an array of teas and coffeees. So no issues there.

The hotel runs an honesty bar in reception which means you can help yourself to drinks, make a note of what you have had and let them know at the end. I must say that we didnt take advantage of this because the bar consists purely of a sofa looking out onto the street and felt a bit like sitting in a fishbowl.

There is free Wifi to use which was great for letting family know we had got there safe.

Ultimately, this is a great hotel for the price and the staff are very very friendly. I would stay here again in the future.
