Splendid Etoile Hotel

... fancy meal across the street. We dined at 8:00, and the restaurant was just starting to get busy. Max had a mission to try escargots (thanks go to Grandma for raving about them) and the chef did not disappoint. Myles was right in there and eager to experience this delicacy, and he rated them a 9.5/10 for his favourite foods! All of our meals were fantastique and the service was exemplary. I would highly recommend Le Bousquet for any future travellers to this city.
... the facilities. Reckoned its cos it's colder and we would use more power - what!!! Not somewhere we will go back to!
Continued our journey, getting closer to Paris. A camp in the centre of Paris had been recommended by a few people and with the GPS programmed to our destination Bo negotiates the streets with great skill. It's not the streets that are the threat to our safety but the crazy drivers who weave their way between the multiple of ...
... five metres wide and twenty-two metres deep. We viewed it first from the top of Avenue des Champs Elysées, then took the underground pedestrian walkway under the Place Charles de Gaulle roundabout to come up right beside the Arc.
From the Arc de Triomphe we again went underground to get back to Avenue des Champs Elysée. We walked the street, window shopping - or "window licking" as we're told the French call it - at the cafés and luxury specialty shops. It may be home to ...
Hot & humid in Paris today... High 30's. Ray & I walked locally this morning but home to the air-conditioning for lunch. Kay is exploring Haussmann & Lafayette for a final shop. Ryan & Grace off somewhere & I have spent ages finishing off yesterday's blog. Now I look at the suitcase... It's time to start packing again!!! Where do I start?? OMG! My adorable ...

We headed straight to the children's area which overlooks the main atrium of the building. There were a number of different activities related to art. The first to catch Bryn's attention was a magnetic table. On the table were trays and cutting boards with different metal objects (either washers or metal rings) that you could "sculpt" with. What Bryn liked best was seeing how quickly they would all fall ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Splendid Etoile Hotel Paris
I'm a believer in these reviews. The hotel was more than we expected. The staff was very helpful, rooms were large and quiet. Great views of the arc de triumph. We will stay here again, no question about it.
Fantastic - just back and booking to return asap
Just back from the hotel Splendid etoile, we loved it! We stayed in room 407 which was a superior room, which had 3 balconies & Beautiful view of the arc d'triomphe. The room was immaculate and a very good size, with large bathroom, the shower was very powerful and the mini bar was well stocked. There is room service available at the hotel, but it is on a great location if you want to eat out. The room was beautiful, comfortable and well soundproofed. I would not stay anywhere else in Paris but the Hotel Splendid etoile, as it was simply perfect.
I spent a solid 7 hours on the internet searching for the perfect hotel in Paris. I was very dubious about the photos as so many hotels "exagerate" their benifits but on arriving and being escorted to the room all doubts went. The hotel was everything I had hoped it would be.
Selecting a hotel on the web is a bit of a hit or miss affair. The pictures on the websites often look better than the actual deal. You never know how old the photos are and accommodation can get quite shabby after a few years! However, the Splendid Etoile was as good as the website promised, if not better. We had a very comfortable stay and were impressed with this venue.
We have just returned from a long weekend and enjoyed every minute of this hotel. The room was extremely clean with a great bathroom. We requested extra pillows on our way out one evening and they were in the room on our return. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location could not be better as you are right on a metro stop. Views from the room were spectacular as we could see both the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Sound proofing was excellent as was the air conditioning. We opted for the continental breakfast which we thoroughly enjoyed especially since it was served until midday. All in all, a great find and we will certainly go back there.
Had a wonderful stay here recently.
Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable.
Hotel is directly opposite the Metro as well as the Air France bus to Charles De gaulle airport ( anyone can use this not just Air France oassengers.
had a room that overlooked the Arc De triomphe...great!!
Wonderful view and romantic stay
This was a magical stay stunning views of the arc de triomphe (make sure you request this when booking) from the bedroom, clean accomodation and friendly service. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a central romantic stay.
Great Location, great hotel
We moved to this hotel after a disappointing experience at the Hotel Napoleon 5 minutes walk away. Service was extremely friendly as soon as you walk in the door. The concierge on duty was extremely helpfull and friendly. Location was perfect just down a minute from the Arc du Triomphe and the metro right at the door. The room was clean, elegant and well appointed. The internet was easy to use and set up. Bathroom was great. The bar was small and service a little slow as the bartender was busy talking on the phone much of the time but otherwise well appointed. Rate was 240 Euros which we felt was more than reasonable and a bargain compared to some of the other hotels we checked out. We would stay again, great hotel, service, location, and friendly.
We opted for the lower priced hotel on our tour - AND WON BIG TIME!
We booked a tour to London and Paris, both times opting for the lower priced hotel. In London, it was "ok". In Paris, it was fabulous. The staff are extraordinarily courteous.
The walk to the Champs Elyees was just 3 - 5 minutes, and we saw the Arc de Triumph from our balcony.
The breakfast room is friendly and the metro stop is literally at your doorstep. The more expensive tour put people near the louvre museum - but for culture and an enjoyable evening, sit on on the Champs Elyees and then - and only then, will you have experienced Paris.
I will stay at this hotel the next time without question.
Lovely, excellent service
This hotel was lovely and elegant. Several of us stayed here - many rooms had a beautiful view of the Arc D'Triomphe. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Convenient location right next to the metro and RER. We will definitely return.
