It is true. The hotel location is fantastic. Very close to Place de l'Etoile and Avenue des Champs-Elysees. Lots of option for lunch and dinner around (in particular 2 good "brasseries" Avenue de Wagram). However, although the hotel was supposedly renovated in 2004 it desperately needs a freshener, in particular the lobby which is grotty.
But in my view the worst thing in the hotel is the rooms. Mine was the room 233, charged 300 EUR per night (!!!). I am used to the size of European rooms but Best Western Elysees probably sets a record. The bed was placed against the wall and there was no space around to move or put the suitcase. Once I was in the shower I could barely move and raise my arm. Breakfast was average for this category of hotel and actually the breakfast room was the best decorated room in the hotel. Should have it been recently renovated?
In short, staying away of this hotel is a good idea. If you have to stay in the area the Mercure Etoile located in the same street next to the Best Western is a better option.
