SENSATIONAL VALUE FOR MONEY!
Hi there. We stayed at this hotel just this weekend passed, on a special deal from London with Eurostar. I used this website to make my mind up on the accommodation and I'm glad I listened to the good reviews for this hotel.
The reception staff were fantastic, especially the cheeky little French man who, when I told him I spoke French 15 years ago, launched into a speel in French! Totally befuzzled, I looked at him thinking he was serious, until I realised he was pulling my leg. Very friendly and helpful.
The room was very comforatble, albeit small, but we didn't spend a lot of time there anyway. The bathroom is gorgeous - all marble.
The location - sensational. Less than 2 minutes walk to the Metro, grocery store, bottle shop, Arc de Triomphe - its fantastic! We walked from the Eiffel Tower back to the hotel in 20 minutes!
The breakfast was also fantastic, albeit croissants, boiled eggs, pastries, (great) coffee, juice etc.
If you're looking for a great value hotel in the centre of it all, visit Star Hotel Etoile! We'll be back !!! Cheers......
This is a fab little hotel - particularly if you're on a budget. The room was spotlessly clean - lovely bathroom. The room had 2 full length french windows so very light and airy and it was air conditioned. We had a triple room but there was still space to move around. The location is superb - 2 minutes round the corner is the Metro station and the Air France bus link to CDG Airport. The local area itself is also very nice - on our first night we arrived quite late and found there were plenty of nice restaurants in the area. Its not a five start hotel so don't expect the 'wow' factor - but I would highly recommend it as a good 3 star.
Great little hotel!
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in Parisfor 7 nights. We loved - it was just what we were looking for - an authentic Parisian hotel with a friendly staff and a great location. Yes, the rooms were small but they were clean and nice. We had a room on the second floor with a balcony. It was very close to a metro stop, the arc de triomphe, and the champs-elyesees. There were also some great restauraunts nearby. Our last night, my husband and I really wanted to find a restauraunt that served fondue but we were having a hard time. The lasy working the front desk spent a lot of time calling around town to find several options for us to choose from.
Fantastic place to stay
This is a beautiful little hotel, which I highly recommend. The rooms are small, but are comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff at the front desk are extremely friendly and helpful, and speak good English. The room rates are very reasonable.
Don't be put off by the location - the hotel is very close to the bustle of the Arc de Triomphe and Champs d'Elysee, but is in a quiet and charming neighborhood with lots of nice (and non-touristy) restaurants. The laundromat directly across the street is an added bonus.
This will definitely be my base in Paris from now on.
Great Little Hotel
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during July 2004 and were very pleased with it. The location is great, only 2 minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees. The staff were always polite and helpful, and the rooms clean and comfortable. The only minor criticism was the size of the room, not that this affected our stay in any way as we never spent any large amount of time in the room, only to sleep. One word of warning - beware other hotel guests flushing there toilet while you are in the shower, caught us out a few times ;-)
Do not believe pictures.
I stayed in this hotel in april 2004.
Bath and bed OK.
No confort. Rooms too small. It has an elevator but for one or two persons, in other words you and only one bag No help with your bags
No security box. Well I think with that price you will find better options.
Great place to stay
I stayed in this hotel February 10 - 13, 2004. The room was small, but I was expecting that. All I wanted was a clean place to sleep. The hotel was clean and well kept. The staff was very friendy. It's about a two minute walk to the metro and the Arc. If I'm lucky enough to get back to Paris, I would stay at this hotel again.
Clean and Comfortable
Stayed December 26-29, 2003. Typical small Parisian hotel--tucked on a side street and small. I enjoy these versus large chains and this one was clean, comfortable, quiet and well-managed. The reception area is inviting and it is ideally located for metro-ing around Paris. Kudos to management!
We stayed in this little hotel, also in October 2003 and agree with everything the previous reviewer has said. It's in a lovely quiet street, but everything you need is just a few steps away. The Champs Elysees is very close, but you would do better to seek out smaller cafes and bars off the main tourist streets to get better value for money, and get away from the crowds and the beggars. Paris is so wonderful and there is so much to see, and the Metro so convenient, that you are never far from anything. The service was ultra friendly, especially the lady on reception. A slight downside was that the breakfast room is small and gets very busy. There isn't really enough space or enough staff to manage the number of guests. I can find no fault with the food itself though. I'd stay there again!
Great little hotel
We stayed here in early October 2003 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Paris. This smallish hotel is conveniently located in a quiet location. Room backed onto a courtyard so we were able to have the window open at all times and not a hint of noise. A good choice of breakfast is included and guests can go downstairs for their meal in the breakfast room or collect their meal and take it back to their room. Room for two was spacious enough to meet our needs and bathroom was a large, modern room with lots of big, fluffy towels. Considered a budget accomodation for Paris but we felt it better than that and oh so close to everything we could want. The direct bus to and fro the airport is just around the corner as is the Metro, the Tourist Information and the tour bus companies. A small open air market is within a few blocks (and recommended), lots of cafes and window shopping/parks/tourist attractions nearby. Would definitely stay here again but for longer than three days!!

All of the desserts in here looked amazing, but we opted for a 12 pack variety of macaroons. We enjoyed some macaroons while walking around Paris and found ourselves in Luxembourg Gardens.
