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.
The hotel itself is CLEAN and our room was ample in size for what I had expected. We had room 14 with 2 twin beds. The bathroom had a bathtub with shower. The tub was very clean and a welcome feature after a long day of walking around the city. Charming, simple decor overall. Room was refreshed with clean towels and nice toiletries every day.
We booked this through paris charming hotels. I highly recommend this site. We got 5 nights for the price of 4 and breakfast was included! GREAT BREAKFAST by the way in a lovely stone- walled room. Buffet of bread, croissants, yogurt, fruit salad, hard boiled egg, orange juice, cheeses and ham...cafe, the or chocolat...of course!
Front desk staff very friendly too!
We would return to this hotel readily!
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.
The room we stayed in was small - no wider than the double bed and only a foot or two longer - but was comforatble and had a tv with three english-speaking channels and a minibar with a chocolate bar, it was also colourful and had two big windows out into the street. The bed was a good size with a nice new mattress. It had a bathtub you could sit in with a shower attachment but no shower curtain. A cleaner came every day and did a good job.
Breakfast was usual continental fare - not worth the 12Euros extra, but worth having if it's free, plus you can get it served in your room.
Overall, this hotel is right in the centre of the action for a short stay in Paris. For a basic hotel it was very good.

... very stable at high speed on the Autoroutes.
Got back at the hotel to see the closing stages of the TdF time trial at Bergerac.
Dinner was around the corner from our hotel, a place called Cafe Sud. Excellent food, beautifully presented at this place.
Tomorrow is the TdF finale and the Champs ...
... walked to the Palais de Justice and went into the Conciergerie, Europe's largest surviving medieval hall and the main prison during the Reign of Terror. I'd visited this museum 10 years ago, and knew Dennis would appreciate its insight into and treatment of the French Revolution. We got a couple of cones of the world-famous Berthillon ice cream on Ile St-Loius afterwards, enjoying the quiet charm of that island in noted contrast to busy Ile de la Cite.
... SO incredibly beautiful! I think if I lived there my whole life and saw it light up every night, I would still be in awe of it. So after the old man working the ferris wheel joked about our American French accents (another super nice Parisian stranger... beginning to think the stuck-up Parisian stereotype is a myth...), we chugged on up to the top and got an amazing view of the lit-up Champs Elysee on one side and Sacre Coeur on the other side far off. I had a flash-back to one of ...
... Very successful tracking and two shirts later we trudged back home for that very welcoming cuppa. I had bought some Hermes macaroons for afternoon tea but as we were so late getting home, and were having and early 7.30 dinner we only shared one, passion fruit flavoured and divine! So only fifteen minutes to shower, change and walk around the corner to La Pantruche. We had a 7.30 booking but had it be out 9.30. I normally wouldn't agree ...
This is my big Friday in Paris! I had a dinner invitation with another group of Googlers-reservations at 8pm at Au Passage. I tried to do some Internet research, but this restaurant has a menu that changes daily and so the most I could glean was from reviews, which were all glowing. So even though I didn't know what to expect, I knew it was going to be top notch.
I was supposed to meet Ari at the Metro station at 7 so we could go have a drink and then ...
