“Basic hotel in good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Stayed here 1 night for business. Location is very nice; near some main sights and very close to metro and restaurants. Service was good en very friendly. Room was small, bed was uncomfortably hard and no shower curtain so bathroom was pretty wet! It was clean and at the price charged I will have no problem staying here again.

Location was great :)

Service was friendly and really helpful

Breakfast was delicious - I don't know where they get their breads and pastries but they were the best we had the whole holiday :)

Room was small which we expected

It was reasonably quiet at night even though we were on the 3rd floor only

The room got very humid after either of us had a shower or if we put on jackets to go out. We really needed the air conditioner remote (which was not in the room and I didn't think of asking for it while we were there)

Room Tip: I don't know if they have them, but it might be good to borrow or get the air conditioner remote...

Basic hotel, tight rooms and bathroom, small eating area, but within walking distance of most of the main things to see, keeping in mind that Paris is a fairly walk-friendly city to begin with. A supermarket across the street is a definitely plus for any necessities and loads of good cafes are close by. Was lucky enough to have an extra bed in the room, which made a good parking place for my suitcase as otherwise there would have been no place to put it. For some reason the electricity plug in the bathroom wouldn't work my hair dryer, so there was a bit of to-ing and fro-ing from the relatively-poorly lit bedroom with elecitricity that worked to the relatively-better lit bathroom with electricity that didn't, but it was all good and gave me some exercise. One has to keep in mind that Paris is not a city where one spends a lot of time indoors, so for that I will say it served its purpose, but if I was traveling with family this would not be a place I would choose.

Room Tip: I believe there are renovated rooms, ask for those. Judging from other comments it seems the older r...

PROS

Nice Location
– Located on a quiet street just a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro.
– There is a small grocery store just down the street to pick up wine, waters, snacks and other items.

Bedroom Basics
– Small desk with chair and plug to charge electronics (or use it as a luggage rack due to little floor space available).
– Mini fridge to hold soft drinks, water and snacks we picked up during our stay.
– TV did have some English speaking channels.

The Only Bathroom Plus
– Tub in bathroom, great for ladies who prefer a ledge for shaving legs.

CONS

The Tiny Bedroom
– Very firm bed with lumpy polyfill pillows.
– The in-room temperature was very difficult to control.
– Very small in-room safe. Just large enough for an iPad and a few small items. Will not hold a laptop.

The Flooded Bathroom
– NO SHOWER CURTAIN, bathroom gets soaked during showering. FUZZY MOLD mold in the grout on the shower walls. The shower head is on a cord to help those who are taller than 5 feet.
– Our “fresh” towels were dirty at times, appeared used and simply refolded. They were also very scratchy and there were no washcloths.
– There are no plugs in the bathroom (probably because there is no shower curtain and they don’t want you standing in a puddle to flat iron your hair). You must use the plug in the bedroom to use hair styling electronics. There was a full length mirror in the bedroom.
– There was no fan or ventilation in the bathroom, so it remained steamy after showering.
– Water temperature fluxuated during showering – was hot/cold/hot again. Good water pressure.
– In-room hair dryer was just ok – took a very long time to dry my hair.
– Very small vanity space in the bathroom.

The Old Hotel
– Wi-Fi was not free and the daily rates changed depending on who was at the front desk that day. The front desk staff seemed to know very little English.
– No ice machine
– The elevator is the size of an airplane bathroom. Only 1 person and a large bag fit at a time.
– They still use actual keys – which we found very hard to lock/unlock the guestroom door.
– Thin walls – could hear the guests in the neighboring room.

Overall, this hotel is close to what I expected for our trip to Europe as I expected small spaces. However, the lack of a shower curtain/wall and dirty towels would not interest me in staying at this hotel again - easy fixes management!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a shower curtain. Thanks to some guest photos, it looks as though there are bath...

This is a fine wee hotel. If you wish to stay within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower in one direction and the Arc de Triomphe in the other, then the location is perfect. There are a number of metro stations very close by and numerous restaurants in the area without making it a 'nightspot'. Our room (405) was very quiet and looked out on to a back courtyard. The rooms are small but this is not uncommon in Paris. The lift is the tiniest I've ever seen, with room for one person and one large suitcase. Our room was clean and serviced every day. The air-conditioning was efficient and free. The room safe was also free. Mini bar was great for keeping our drinks chilled from the supermarket in same street. There is no hotel bar and public areas are small and serve little purpose. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room, nor instructions/ guides for staying in the hotel or Paris. The room does not have a corkscrew but one can be borrowed from the front desk. Staff are efficient without being over friendly. If breakfast is not part of your deal, don't buy it. There are lots of better alternatives on the nearby streets. The dining room is also small and in the basement. We had breakfast included and one morning all seats were taken. As part of a very good EasyJet package, this hotel was fine for a few days but it has its limitations. If the tariff suits your pocket, then book it.

Just got back (3rd Aug 2012) from spending 3 nights at Hotel Etoile Trocadero, Paris.
Pleasantly surprised as the photos on tripadvisor do not do it justice. It looked like it had been refurbished since the last photos had been taken. The rooms may be small but its a typical Parisian building. Hotel is clean, tastefully decorated, free air conditioning (we've had to pay for it in other hotels), rooms cleaned daily, beds made, towels changed daily, hot water, breakfast was more than adequate for a continental breakfast and pleasant staff. Hotel is ideally situated 2 mins to closest metro, 5 mins walk to the Eiffel Tower and 10 mins walk in opposite direction to Arc de Triomphe & Champs Elysees. We had a good deal so it was real value for money. Would go there again and recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor are quieter. We had a top floor, road facing room with hardly any noise !

We loved this hotel's location. We were just a couple blocks from the Trocadero metro stop and the Eiffel Tower. There are a ton of places to eat within blocks of the hotel as well, and a laundromat just down the block. The pictures of the hotel can be deceiving, the real thing is not as lovely, but the rooms were clean, comfortable and made up daily. We had a refrigerator, enough room to move around and, above all, air conditioning! The staff was very pleasant to work with, especially helpful in storing ice packs for day trips. The continental breakfast was simple, the same everyday, but the bread was fresh. For a place to sleep after a busy day seeing Paris, it was a good place to stay, especially for price and location.
