Nice hotel, very friendly front desk staff, fluent in English and several other European languages by the sound of it. Great location. The hotel has varied rooms and our group of 10 had a mixture - looks like the top floor has the biggest rooms but all were more than big enough for a central Paris hotel.

I stayed here for four nights to celebrate my birthday in Paris. I specifically chose it because of the blue color scheme and the view of the Arc de Triomphe. I was on the 3rd floor and it is still a bit noisy from the street traffic, but that is part of the fun. The interiors of the hotel are just beautiful. Everyone at the front desk was very helpful, especially Farooq. Make sure the visit the restaurant next door for breakfast and dinner. There is even a small room on the ground floor with free computer/internet.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a view of the Arc de Triomphe.

Our first time to this hotel and we will certainly return. Our room was comfortable, well-furnished , had a great view of The Arc de Triomphe, and even a kettle!
Farooq and his team on the front desk helped enormously as we tried to see as much as possible in a short stay.
It is a four star hotel with only a small lounge area, but the price reflects this and it is good value.

While the hotel was very good and the staff very accommodating the area had a few seedy characters loitering around. But there was never a problem with them and at no time did my wife and I feel unsafe.

We spent 4 nights here over Easter. Superior room with balcony; fabulous view of the Arc de Triomphe. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated and most comfortable. Bed was fantastic. Thought breakfast was expensive but at least it was substantial. Staff were friendly, professional & discreet. We had our baby with us and they provided access to their kitchen so we could sterilize her bottles. The location is fantastic; great cafés & restaurants nearby, 2 min from the Champs Elysées. Access to Etoile station by lift just outside the door. Air France coaches pick up/drop off for CDG airport across the road.

We had the chance for a free upgrade on our last night to a large room with a view of the Arc de Triumph would definitely ask for this room next time we book as the other room was very small and dark in comparison and no view. However, would not think about staying any where else as the hotel had a lovely friendly feel to it, and staff were very helpful. EXCELLENT location, we used the hop on hop off bus and walked to get in all the sights. Farouq the chief concierge was lovely and very helpful in booking the river cruise, we would do that again, well worth the money.
Already planning our next trip to the Splendid Etoile Hotel, it has a special feel about it.

We couldn't have had a better location - just a few minutes walk from the start and finish of the Paris marathon and right by the Arc de Triomphe. The staff were always helpful and cheerful. Breakfast had a lot more choices than I expected so that was a plus. My room was comfortable and quiet. No view at all but that didn't bother me as I was out a great deal. I did like being able to open the full length windows as I can't always get the air conditioning just right. Also liked having a bath rather than just a shower.
