Hotel Le 123 Elysees - Astotel
Travel Blogs from Paris
... just telling me that dad has finally fixed something around the house and to wish me a good day. Its always nice hearing from home. After getting off the phone to mum, I started to get ready to go to the museum. It was a fairly nice day so I decided to wear my t-shirt and shorts. I left the hotel at around 11am. It was a fairly nice walk. There was so much to see. It only took me around 25 minutes to walk ...
... those who died during the July 1830 revolution. Over the Corinthian capital is a gallery 4.9 metres wide, surmounted with a gilded globe, on which stands a colossal gilded figure, Auguste Dumont's Génie de la Liberté (the "Spirit of Freedom"). Perched on one foot in the manner of Giambologna's Mercury, the star-crowned nude brandishes the torch of civilisation and the remains of his broken chains. Formerly, the figure ...
... and into those of the apartment across the street. I can't actually see anything but the shutters are open and so is the door; they must not feel the cold! It's a freezing day today in Paris - 13 degrees or so. We ventured out to the Musee D'orsay unaware that the Louvre is closed today; the millions of tourists in Paris all decided that the Musee was THE place to be and the line snaked back and forth and back (and forth) to such an extent that our will ...
... wet and by now #1d had developed a nasty cold so a quiet evening was had indoors over a few drinks.
Odd things happen - and curious chance meetings. On New Year’s Day we visited the Pompidou Centre (see pics). As I was gazing at some obscure and impenetrable piece of surrealism a voice said “Hello Leigh”. What are the chances of meeting someone you know so far from home? Would the odds have been better deployed on a winning lottery ...
... was ready and waiting. Over to our apartment, which again did not disappoint, two. Bedrooms each with views to the Eiffel Tower !!! Excited with our location we first headed to the supermarket, where our seriously lit up at the array of meats, cheeses and pastries. We gathered some essentials, and dropped them back to the apartment before heading out to explore our environs. We trekked to the base of the Eiffel Tower ( we ...

Charming Boutique Hotel
Great location within 5 minutes of Champs ...
Decent sized rooms and bathrooms - all recently remodeled.
Cute lobby and restaurant area - breakfast included.
Go directly to hotel website for the best rates - I paid between $199Eu-$399EU for my stay - definitely worth it for anywhere under $300EU.
Ho soggiornato in questo hotel per un viaggio di lavoro (luglio 2006) e non avevo letto le recensioni prima di partire (un collega aveva fatto la prenotazione per me), ma sembra chiaro che l'hotel sia stato completamente rinnovato da quando è stata scritta l'ultima recensione. Questo è per lo più un moderno hotel boutique. Le camere sono arredate con molto gusto e hanno un aspetto molto moderno e pulito. La mia camera era dotata di TV a schermo piatto e interenet ad alta velocità. Il personale era disponibile e cordiale. Il bar al piano di sotto era bello ma non posso commentare sul cibo in quanto non abbiamo mangiato in hotel (come è già stato detto da altri, nei dintorni è pieno di posti in cui mangiare). Vorrei far notare che su Expedia appaiono delle foto datate dell'hotel, mentre sul sito di TripAdvisor le foto dell'hotel, tratte dalla galleria di foto della Orbitz, sono più attuali. È interessante fare un confronto e vedere com'era prima e adesso!
Dall'esterno non ci sono indizi su cosa aspettarti ma, una volta in camera, lo spazio, i soffitti alti, l'arredamento e il decoro minimalista, il bagno di gran classe... tutto rende questo posto una piacevole sorpresa.
Whilst the hotel itself is a bit more high 3 star than the advertised 4 star don't let this put you off.
My husband and I stayed here for five nights during the first week of September. It was our second time in Paris and also, our honeymoon. We stayed at the K+K Cayre last fall and wanted to try another contemporary/modern boutique hotel, but on the Right Bank this time.
From the outside one has no clue what to expect but once you get into your room the space, high ceilings, minimalist (just right) decor and furniture, top class bathroom... all make it a very nice surprise.
Had to stay here for a business trip (July 2006) and hadn't read the reviews here in advance (a colleague booked it for me) but it seems clear that the hotel has been completely renovated since those reviews were written.
I've stayed in hotels in Europe before, in fact, alot. I know that unless you are staying at a top hotel, a quaint bed & breakfast or a hip boutique hotel expectations should be lower than what most experience of a hotel in the States. However, this was beyond acceptable. This room was frightening. Something out of National Lampoon's European Vacation. The walls were covered with fabric wall paper and there were stains on the walls, in more than one place. Who knows what those stains were but it honestly gave the feel of a dirtbag hotel. The bed had so many lumps and a pit so deep it was honestly laughable. The bathroom was so outdated, it looks like it hasn't been updated since the early 70s. Yes, the location is incredible, it really is in a great place. The bakery downstairs sells some of the best Chocolate Croissants I've ever had in my life. However, the room itself gives the feel of a pay-by-the-hour hotel room in the Bronx.
Great location but poor accommodations
Central location ALMOST made up for shabby accommodations. Bed was very lumpy, no one gave us a replacement for a burnt lightbulb, and one of the receptionists was very rude and unhelpful. If it weren't for the great fun outside of the hotel, it would have been a disastrous stay.
Definitely does not warrant the 3 stars given by a hotel booking website. Two stars is more like it.
