“A midweek Paris break”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

We stayed at the Spendide Etoile in mid January for one night. We received a warm welcome, a room upgrade and a complementary bottle of Chablis. The hotel is in a central location right next to the metro and the staff were helpful from the outset and throughout our stay. Excellent room overlooking the Arch de Triomphe. A highly recommended hotel for your break in Paris. Thank you!

I love this hotel. Have stayed multiple times and love it for so many reasons. It is a smaller boutique hotel with all of the amenities of a large 5 star hotel, but without the crowds or fuss. No crowds of tourists in the lobby or screaming children. Peace and relaxation is a must when i go on vacation or stay in a hotel. Staff could not be more helpful and wonderful. They are much appreciated. The concierge rules the roost, personally making sure everyone is taken care of.

My only suggestion is that the beds, while very yummy, have extremely firm mattresses, making sleep uncomfortable unless you particularly like an unusually firm bed. I solved the problem using a quilt from an adjoining bed as a mattress pad. It was fine. Perhaps management can offer a similar alternative to make stays absolutely perfect.

I look forward to another stay very soon.

We stayed at the hotel splendid etoile for 4 nights in January at this hotel who was splendid experience. You can see the Arc Triomphe from the window - just steps from there. Breakfast was good. Walking walking distance from several restaurants.
A minutes from the Champs Elysees. Comfortable and clean.

in Paris for a quick trip. This hotel is just off the Etoile and has great views from many rooms of the Arc Triomphe with the Eiffel Tower in the distance. There are more restaurants in the immediate area than you can count, plus the entrance to the Metro and RER A is just a few steps away from the front of the hotel, so all of Paris is very accessible. The service is friendly and helpful. There is a small but very nice and quiet bar just off the lobby which was great for a pre dinner glass of Champagne.

Room Tip: spring for the suites with a view of the Arc de Triomphe, with the Eiffel Tower in the distance

We stayed at the hotel splendid etoile for 5 nights in December over new year's period.

Pros:
- Perfect location, metro station Charles Des Gaulles Etoile was at the hotel's door footstep and this made our trip to and from the airport so smooth. Also the hotel is located right at the round about of the Arc De Triomphe so we walked practically everywhere, to champs elysees, to concord place, to Vendome place, to George V street, we even walked to notre dame one day but it was a long walk.

- Very clean and had good amenities - kettle and tea in the room complimentary.

- Friendly staff - always smiling and ready to answer any questions.

Cons:
- Room rather small but was comfortable.

- No breakfast included in our rate.

- Found it extremely expensive given that its not 5 stars and breakfast was not included.

We stayed at Hotel Splendid Etoile for 3 days and were very impressed with the hotel. The view was spectacular. Arch of triumph was across the street from the hotel and it took us couple of minutes to walk to the Champs Elysees. The location is walking distance from several restaurants and monuments as well as train and bus stations. You can see the Eiffel tower and arch of triumph from your room window. The rooms were spacious, clean, well decorated and kids friendly.
Staff was very friendly and spoke English fluently, especially their Concierge Farooq Musani who not only spoke several languages including English but was very courteous and helpful. He arranged the trip around town and gave us tips on the places to visit. They can even help you get tickets and arrange the transportation to the must see places in Paris.
Our family travels around the world with kids and I will give this place a 5 star rating for location, comfort and service. Dr. Ali and Dr. Lubna , Denver CO U.S.A.

Room Tip: 6th floor has spectacular views and space.
