This was my first trip to France, and based on many stories, I expected staff at French hotels to be a bit snobbish and rude, but that was not this case with this hotel! The staff were all very helpful, polite and delightful. One of the maids even helped us with our baggage. It IS a small hotel so do not expect ammenities that come with bigger properties, but it did have free wi-fi and the rooms are surprisingly large, humongous really. The concierge told me it is a renovated old building from the 1800s I think. The exterior is gorgeous and the views are amazing. We could see the Arc de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower from our room.
The only downside is that since it is an older building, the carpets are a big dated and the elevators only fit two people. But the room decor is gorgeous!
If you are looking for the perfect four-star hotel In Paris, you can stop right now. You will not be dissappointed with the Splendid Etoile. And don't forget to try out the Patiserrie just down the street--the pastries are to die for!
Oh, and take a bike tour! It's ridiculously fun!
