... sound of the fire alarm and everyone standing in the street. It was however only a drill, but how lucky were we as our room is on the 5th floor and had we been here would have had to walk down 5 floors. Our room is small but it has a reasonable sized bathroom, much better than where we stayed last night. It is in a good position, close to the rail system and walking distance to a number of places we have on our wish list to see. Once settled we headed down the street about ...

I instantly felt like a diabetic and as good as it tasted it was sickening. Worth the experience though and I bought a few macaroons on the way out to eat when my sweet taste buds had recovered.

Spending time with my cousin after 20-some-odd years, and meeting her husband that I had heard so much about from other family members was equally delightful; however, they weren't willing to do cartwheels through Tuileries Garden or explain each back story of every Smurf in the Smurfs movie. Therefore, they came in close second (although the cheese plate Cynthia put together nearly ...

With Gigi in command we did pretty well until we tried to find a gas station close to the airport. I swear, we went around the same 2 round abouts at least four times each...we could see the station but just couldn't get to it. But Gigi never got flustered - just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tilsitt Etoile Paris
I was very pleased with our four night stay at the Hotel Tilsitt. The staff spoke English and was always very helpful. The rooms were not tiny, as I had expected in Paris. The minibar had a great selection and was cheaper than the bar in the hotel and MUCH cheaper than any of the bars in the area. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was extremely clean. There was no shower curtain, but after 2 weeks in Europe we were accustomed to that. If you stay here, be sure to ask for a room overlooking the street. There is a nice little courtyard garden, but I enjoyed the street view from the two large windows. The hotel is airconditioned, but we hardly needed it, even in August. Internet access is available in the lobby, but you must pay extra for it. I think one hour was 8 euro. The location is convenient as well. The Charles de Gaulle-Etoile metro stop by the Arc du Triomphe is less than 5 minutes away. I think at least 3 metro lines go through this stop. They offer laundry service, but we washed our clothes at a laundry mat around the corner. There was a little grocer nearby as well. We had a very good experience and were sad to leave. I would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful Hotel, with a good location and staff!!! Next time I will be there again!!! I recommend it!!!
3 nights in a very nice special paris hotel...
I really enjoyed staying at the Tilsitt etoile hotel. In paris, there is thousands of hotels: in this hotel, one senses that the whole staff wants to make it special. And they succeed. I much enjoyed the Lobby/Bar, and the breakfast room. The personnel is very polite and extremly helpfull.
A very good choice
Very nice staff and please environnement. This hotel is ideally located and the price is good.
Charming and quiet!
This was a nice surprise! Going to Paris with my 2 young kids (ages 2 and 4), I expected noice and small rooms. The room was a good size and on a quiet street a short 5 minute walk to the Arc and Metro. The reception staff was very helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Great location with french cosy atmosphere
Great value for money given the location:
5 minutes from AirFrance airport shuttle bus
1 minute from Etoile metro station (Wagram Avenue)
2 minutes from ChampsElysee and Arc De Triomph
very nice neighborhood with restaurants and pubs in the area.
French atmosphere, with lovely dining room for breakfast.
Rooms a bit small (but as are all accomodations in paris).
Didn't get the best view from my single room, but didn't mind it.
Clean towels daily, nice big bathtub and room is cleaned daily.
Would definately stay there again next time.
My daughter and I stayed here from 11th to 16th July 2005. Wonderful location as you can walk about two blocks to the Arc de Triomphe and grab Metro or stroll down the Champs Elysees...Walk in the opposite direction to the lovely Place des Ternes and its flower stall and Metro Stop. This area is characterized by wide avenues and you'll find restaurants, clothing stores etc , not far at all.
Agree wholeheartedly with the comments made about the locale. It's ideal if you have never been to Paris before as it's smack bang at the top of the Champs and close to the George V metro. Rooms are compact, but you won't be in them long enough for it to constitute a problem as there is so much to see and do in the city anyway. Very clean and the staff are fantastic always willing to give advice and language tips. Spoil yourself and try the Kok Ping restaurant on nearby Rue Balzac where the food is ................. sorry memories came flooding back.
OK but now what we expected
We booked this hotel based on the location and the adorable pictures on the Internet. The location is indeed fantastic (very close to the Arc and the Champs Elysees) with one of the most convenient metro lines just down the street. However, the bedrooms were nowhere near as cute as they appeared on the website. They were clean enough, and the beds comfy enough, but very small and bleak. There was a faint mildew smell in our bathroom and we were woken up every morning by some construction work. The breakfast room is adorable and the food quite nice (but pricey at $12 euro a person). Staff friendly and spoke English.
Overall, a moderate hotel in a safe, convenient area...not quite a 3 star though!
The hotel is in a lovely, safe area in a small street five minutes walk from the Arc de Triomph. There are lots of other hotels in the area, and this is one of the better ones - clean and friendly, lounge, breakfast room, bar, etc, and the staff could speak good English.
