“Good Place to Be”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

This cosy hotel is located a hop skip and a jump away from the arc de Triomphe, if you are the athletic type that is. Otherwise it's less than five minutes walk from said arc with a Metro stop before the arc. There are two brasseries within seconds of leaving the hotel, a good patisserie, a small epicerie and a good butcher where you might be tempted to buy a roast chicken to beat the high cost of restaurants.

The room was not large but the bed was, as we requested. It was also a nonsmoker's room so it didn't stink. The bathroom had been recently refurbished, there was a safe, free wifi and for those who need it, air conditioning. It was more than adequately heated the weekend we were there, which happened to be unseasonably warm, or as things look now probably seasonally warm, global warming taken into account.

The breakfast was decent with yogurts, several cheeses, ham, coffee with hot milk or without, you choose, real juice, several types of bread, regular sized croissants and pain chocolat, (not the usual over-sized type, neither of which I sampled so cannot attest to their quality). The breakfast room is pleasant a with a large television that thankfully, only played a screen saver. The one criticism I'd have of the breakfast room is that stylish though the chairs were, they were too low for the tables and the stools were a tad small for regular-sized butts but not of course for the pert little butts everyone aspires to.

Staff were helpful. Rooms were clean. Breakfast personnel worked hard to keep up and spoke English. A good solid bed with no street noise with the window closed. Charming view of street and Arc de Triomphe.

The hotel's location was a plus because everything was within walking distance (if you are a walker) and otherwise the Metro was close at hand.

I would return.

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days while I was in France for business. I picked this hotel because it was close to two Metro lines, so I could go to work.
Also my wife wanted a hotel that was close to shopping and restaurants while I was away at work. This hotel met both our needs and more. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There was free wifi and breakfast and very clean, comfortable rooms. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paris for business or fun.

This was our first time in Paris and this was the perfect location for us (there is even a metro station, Etoile a block from the hotel). We had heard so many negative comments about French attitudes but found everyone at the hotel to be quite helpful. The room was small but very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was tasty and a good value as well.
I have no hesitations in recommending this to anyone unless you have loads of money-then by all means spend accordingly.

We stayed here 2 nights around October 1st. Nice little hotel near the Arch de Triomphe. Small room with modern and decent size bathroom. We were glad for the A/C because it was a hot spell in Paris. Easy walk to Metro, buses and shopping. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only complaint was that they forgot to tell us that breakfast was included on check-in.

nice hotel near main metro station and arc de triumph. also in nice area. beds and pillows very comfy. hotel staff very friendly and helpful. closer to airport so our taxi ride only cost us 40 euros from airport. don't bother with the shuttle buses- they will cost you just as much as a taxi.
