Royal Magda Etoile Hotel
Travel Blogs from Paris
France was not my favorite country. As a matter of fact, it might be on the bottom of my list so far in Europe. In defense of the place though, I had a few negative things happen that probably affected my mood.
The first problem cropped up on day 1 in the country after the ship docked in Le Havre. It was mostly my fault because I decided to hang with some crew friends I made on the ship in town rather than head down to the town of Bayeux in Normandy early on as originally ...
... to the mad drivers with 11 streets from it. Is apparently the word's first roundabout. The Arc was begun by Napoleon in 1806 in homage to his Grand Armee, but wasn't finished until 1836 by Louis -Philippe, who dedicated it to the French army in general.
WiFi driving me crazy will finish this day when I have time.
... so. We then all caught the metro to the Eiffel Tower and decided to climb it. We all walked up to the second level, which was a measly 669 steps. And after a couple of photos at each level, we caught the elevator to the top level. After staying up there for a while, and observing all of Paris, we headed down. After that, the twins and I headed to St Chappelles Cathedral, while the boys went back to Napoleons Tomb. I had heard mixed things about St Chappelles, but once we got inside ...
By the time Branly closed at 7pm I was exhausted and just managed to make it back to the Hostel without falling asleep. I spent Monday recuperating and finding a Laundromat, since I was at the rather desperate stage as regards clean undergarments, or indeed garments of any kind. Living out of a suitcase has its downside! Weird as it may seem even using the Laundromat here was fun! Partially because the instructions were in French ...
... stunning. I stopped dead in my tracks and just looked at it for a few minutes. I couldn't believe it. The sky was blue, the clouds were white and fluffy and the bright yellow sun was smiling proudly on the beautiful surroundings. A light fog remained low near the ground which made the buildings in the distance seem like a mirage.
The Grand Palais was impressive. The Petite Palais across the street (not so petite) is more to my liking, but one day I hope ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Magda Etoile Hotel Paris
Hotel Magda is at a great location near the Arc d' Triomphe, Champs Elysees & numerous metro lines which all run through the nearby Charles Degaulle stop. The hotel was clean & the staff was professional.
Clean, great location and excellent staff!
My fiancee and I just returned from a three day trip to Paris and our stay at the Royal Magda was more than I expected. The hotel has recently been completely refurbished and everything from the furniture to the bathroom tiles is new! The hotel is very clean, the staff went out of their way to accomadate us with an early check in and late check out. The continental breakfast is also excellent.
The hotel is about a block away from the Charles de Gaulle Etoile metro stop and a few blocks from the L'Arc de Triomph and Champs Elysee. We definitely will stay here again when visiting Paris. This hotel is definitely a hidden jewel. I was searching for a clea, modern and reasonably priced hotel in the L'Arc de Triomph area and the Royal Magda exceeded my expectations!!
My favorite hotel in Paris
We stayed there my sister and I for 4 days. We are leaving in Hong Kong, and working for a french compagny. Somebody recomend us this hotel because the compagny use to stay there. The staff there was incredibly friendly and helpfull. Room ans bathroom wad spotlessy clean. Location in Paris was so great near the ARC DE TRIOMPHE and the famous AVENUE DES CHAMPS ELYSEES.
We would recomend this hotel to anyone wanting to have a very nice and pleasant stay in Paris.
A special thanks to Flore (front desk) who is a such adorable person.
Hotel de charme aux Champs Elysees
Nous avons passés le week-end dernier un charmant séjour à l'hôtel royal magda etoile. A deux pas de l'arc de triomphe, dans une petite rue tranquille, nous avons été charmé par cet hôtel tout neuf. Les chambres sont extremement propres et joliment décoré dans des tons de beige et blanc. Les couettes et la climatisation sont un vrai plus. Les téléviseurs ecrans plats au mur changent des petites télévisions posés sur les bureux dans les autres hôtels. Le petit déjeuner était copieux et variés, et surtout, ils le servent jusqu'à midi. Un vrai bonheur pour ceux qui comme nous aiment faire la grace matinée. Les réceptionnistes de jour comme de nuit sont d'une gentillesse absolue. Bref, une hôtel idéal pour un séjour romantique dans Paris.
Royal Magda Etoille
My two children and I spent two wonderful nights in this quaint little Hotel in the centre of Paris, about two minute walks from the Champ Eylise. The room was small but it fitted a double bed and qa single bed. It was very clean. Continental breakfast was good. The front staff was wonderful as I do not speek French they really went out of their way to help. Well done. I will certainly go back there in the future. Cristina-Johannesburg- South Africa
Royal Madga. Awesome !!!
Royal Magda is conveniently placed. It is at walking distance to the Champs Elysees, tour buses, etc... Breakfast is served until noon, which is great for the late sleepers. The rooms are very clean, very spacious. Free internet access!!! The staff is excellent! They are very helpful with directions in French and English. We would definitely return to Royal Magda whenever we visit Paris. We would recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful hotel in Paris
I've been in Paris on vacation with a friend and we stayed at the Roayl Magda Hotel near the Champs Elysees.This hotel was marvellous, the rooms were very clean and tastefully furnihed and we enjoyed air conditionning! The staff was always very nice and courteous, and they were very helpful. they gave us very good tips about things to do and to see in Paris. They also recommended us the best restaurants. They all made this stay unique!
Nous sommes restés à l'hôtel Magda Etoiel du 13 au 16 juin 2006. Nous avons adoré la décoration et la gentillesse du personnel. Entièrement redécoré cet établissement est un bijou à deux pas des champs Elysées. Demandez la chambre 516, luxe, paisibilité et une proporeté exemplaire. Des hôtels comme on les aime.
Incredible renovated hotel
I have been several times in the ROyal magda and the fournitures is really nice, the location is perfect close to the ARC de Triomphe. The service is really good. I came here a couple years ago and it was not nice at all. It has been since renovated and I really recommend this hotel
