We had a three-night stay at the hotel and it was in a great location, especially public transportation including the Le Bus Direct from the Airport (one block away) which we took to the hotel. The staff was friendly and helped us arrange dinner reservations and arranged a last minute van to take a large group to the airport for our departure. Rooms were very nice and the staff added an extra pull-out bed for our young son. Very much enjoyed our experience.

Our family trips to Paris for the past 10 years have been at the Splendid Etoile. In fact we always ask for the same room with a view of the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower. The room has a sitting room with fireplace and a small refrigerator. The bathroom is updated with modern conveniences, robes & slippers. The hotel is literally next to the Arc and Metro in front of the hotel.
We realize there are many other hotels to select from but the Splendid staff make you feel like your at home. The hotel offers breakfast for a bit extra, unless you select a room type that included breakfast. Also worth noting is the location of the airport shuttle across the street, for those wanting that option. They also have a small business center in case you need to print out tickets or check in for your flight. I highly recommend this hotel in Paris.

We arrived at Hotel Splendid Etoile around 19:00 on December 22, 2019. I was a bit surprised at how small the lobby was, but it was certainly adequate for the purpose and handsomely furnished, and the concierge Abdul was warmly friendly and escorted us immediately to our room. We were given a sixth floor room that was surprisingly spacious, given the generally small size of hotel rooms in Paris, and ours looked out over the grand boulevard on the other side of the hotel in a magnificent panoramic view, by far the best I have ever had in a hotel anywhere in Europe or the U.S. The Arc de Triomphe dominated the center right of the landscape, while the magnificent old buildings of Paris swept away to the left. Far below people were walking, and the lights of the Champs Elysee glimmered beyond the Arc. It was absolutely like something out of a film, and we would leave the window open at night to get not only the sounds of the street but the cold night air (hotels in Europe are always rather warm for us). The bed was firm, clean and comfortable, and there were plenty of places to store our luggage and clothing. The bathroom was spacious and fairly easy to use, and the modern electrical system worked perfectly. Most of all, I really cannot overpraise Farouq, the head concierge, and Abdul. They were continually helpful, frequently sharing a joke or anecdote with us, and Farouq knew Paris like the back of his hand, steering us to an excellent but fairly low cost restaurant nearby (Le Hide) and helping us greatly us with advice of all kinds. I was genuinely sorry to say good bye to the staff when we left, and when and if we return to Paris (finances are the challenge at this point), we will surely stay at Hotel Splendid Etoile again. Thank you Farouq and Abdul for a wonderful "home" in the City of Lights!

We stayed at Hotel Splenfid Etoile in the heart of Paris from 5th August 2022 to 9th August 2022. The location of this hotel is fantastic, 2 mins walk from the famous Champ Elyses and Arc de Triumphe respectively. There's also elevator exit 5 of Charles de Gaulle Metro station right by the doorstep of the hotel. All in all the location is fantastic.

However, we were unlucky to be given one of the smallest double rooms in the hotel. We've stayed in hotels across the world, the size of room 408 is nothing to write home about and there's literally no room to "swing a cat!". I read a number of reviews prior to booking this hotel and I specifically requested not be put in a small room, but alas it fell on deaf ears. The hotel was fully booked during our stay, so changing rooms was not an option. The room should, at best, be labelled a single room not a double room.

The breakfast was excellent, with lots of cold meat and full English and American varieties. They also have lots of fruits and fresh fruits. The only downside is that the waiters tend to clear the food tray at 12 noon despite the fact that the breakfast time ends at 12.30pm. The hotel management needs to do something about this, the waiters should clear the food trays at 12.30pm, not half an hour prior to the stated end time for breakfast.

I have given this hotel 3*, because of the so called small double room (should be a single room) and the clearing of breakfast way before the advertised time.

I will stay in the hotel again, but certainly not in room 408, the location and beauty alone compensates for the other faults. I will just ask for and insist on a larger room.

Far below par. Staff not communicative nor knowledgable. They had brochures at the desk for evening cruises on the Seine, but no one knew how to get there. They have old-fashioned keys that you leave at the desk when you go out and pick up when you return. The room was cold and when we asked someone to adjust the heat they told us it was "summer" (in April-May) and they shut off the heat and put on the air conditioner. The breakfast was OK, but limited and certainly nothing special. A couple we were traveling with were actually charged $100 for breakfast because our tour had ended, while we and others were not charged. Ridiculous. The room was a bit small and the lighting was very poor. Aside from its convenient location next to the Arc du Triomphe and Champs Elysee, it's what Bette Davis might have called "a dump."

I stayed there for 5 days in late August 2022. The hotel is a few meters from the Arc de triumph and one of the entrances to the Charles de Gaulle metro station is across the street. My room in the third floor was large with a sitting area, sofa, two TVs; basically a small suite. Every morning when I leave the room around 9:00 a.m. I find the housekeeping lady sitting in a small resting room; she greets me and my room is done spotless in less than an hour. The front desk staff are friendly and very helpful. I did not use the restaurant. In conclusion, I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay there again in my next visit to Paris.

This was by far one of the best hotels we have stayed in while traveling Europe. The location is perfect for walking and very close to all of the tourists sites. We were met with a very warm and kind greeting from Olga at the front desk, she made sure we were accommodated with our special requests and anything else we may have needed; in addition to Olga there was Amando; he assisted us in making all of our site reservations including theater tickets; his patience was outstanding with us as we knew very little; the entire staff was very impressive and friendly and I know that this is the hotel I will stay at every time i visit Paris

The most beautiful hotel with stunning views, in the perfect location and such friendly staff! I’m a content creator and emailed a few weeks in advance to ask if I Could secure a room with a balcony to take some pictures with. The hotel surpassed my expectations, not only giving me a room with a balcony, but an incredible view of the arc de triomphe! Rooms spacious and clean, shower gels, teabags, water etc always topped up when needed, very attentive service. Prime location for the metro, and in walking distance of an abundance of cafes and shops. Miss this hotel and the views of dreamy Paris, thank you to hotel splendid Etoilé for such a dream stay.

Having visited Paris many times and staying in different places, I booked this hotel due to its proximity to various Metro lines.

After arriving at the hotel at about 10:30am, one of our 2 rooms was available to check into immediately. The size of the rooms is incredibly generous given Paris standards. The rooms are clean and very well-equipped. I’d booked a balcony room and the views were absolutely mind blowing.

The hotel staff are incredibly friendly, polite and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

Will definitely be staying here again. Absolutely amazing.

I am 5 10" . the room with two slightly larger than twin beds. Each was large enough and both could be coupled to make a king bed. The trouble I had is that both mattresses were hard as a rock and asked them to replace at least one. Even though they said they would they never did. I took the duvet off of both beds and folded them to make one pillow mattress and that seemed to help. My back thanked me There are only two Suites on the top floor that have a direct view of the Arc. See my review & photos on all the positives I gave. I still rated them 5 star on TAd. Enjoy
