“Great location, good service and very nice hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

This is the second time we stayed in this hotel and it lived up to our previous visit. By Parisian standards, the room are pretty spacious (you can move around the furniture) and they are tastefully decorated. The staff are helpful - and the free glass of Champagne is a really nice touch. It's no longer part of the Best western chain - but that was the only change we noticed between our visits.

In terms of location, its easy to walk to the Arc de Triomphe or the Champs Elysees - and the Metro is also in walking distance. I'd definately recommend a visit to the nearby Musee Jacquemart-Andre, which also has a lovely restaurant for lunch!

Room Tip: The rooms on the Av. de Friedland have a little more traffic noise, but the double glazing is excell...

Comfortable hotel in a safe centrally located neighborhood. Friendly and helpful staff.

The free breakfast and tea time comes in handy and we took advantage of these meals. Breakfast included an assortment of cheese, cold cut meats, breads, yogurt, fruit and fruit juices. They also served traditional breakfast items such as eggs, bacon and sausages.
The tea time buffet also had an assortment of cheese, breads, cold cuts, meat pies and salads. They also served sweet pies which were delicious. My favorite being the coconut cream pie. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

What this hotel lacks in size and scale, it more than makes up in its quality of service, location and small niceties such as inclusive breakfast, wi fi and afternoon tea.

Want to particularly mention an episode with my blackberry phone - left it in the room but didnt know for sure where or what had happened to it. Called the hotel and reported the matter. They said someone had already checked into my room but would check with the cleaning staff and revert. Got a call back same day saying they hadn't found it. So lost all hope and ordered a replacement. Got another call next day saying they searched again and found it tucked in the safe ! They took my credit card no. and mailed it to me. Received my bb safe and sound. This is what differentiates a good hotel from a great hotel. Had a similar episode with my sweater at the much fancier, 5 star (allegedly) Atlantis Hotel in Dubai - despite contacting them immediately ( definitely left in the room), never recovered, no apologies and encountered rudeness to add insult to injury. So well done Friedland!

My daughter and I stayed here for part of a vacation. The staff was very nice and very helpful. We found the Wifi to be very good despite the frequency of having to log on - it was fast! The breakfast and tea were very good and a great way to save if you have to travel on a budget. We actually found the tea to be sufficient for dinner one night - bread, lunch meats, cheeses, a couple of cold salads. The room was nice enough although the mattresses were a little firm. However if you've traveled all over Paris for the day, you don't really notice. We liked the proximity to the Arc and to the Champs Elysees. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to people who are looking for a good value in Paris.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room.

My husband and I stayed here for a week in April 2012. I chose this hotel based on past reviews, the location and the free breakfast. I also picked it because they have queen size beds instead of a double since there were two of us. The room was average for Europe standards but it was nice to have a balcony. Bathroom was updated and roomy. Free wifi was nice although it timed out all the time. There was street noise but it wasn't too bad. If you've been walking around all day, you're too tired to care. Breakfast was ok. Bacon, eggs, sausage, bread, cereal, pastries and juice. Tea time buffet wasn't worth it, so don't base your decision on that. Metro was about 5 minutes away. Markets were right down one side street, maybe 2 minutes away. Taxi stand right outside hotel was nice. Free minibar drinks were also a nice plus. We would definitely stay there again.

Me and my wife stayed at the hotel for three nights in april 2012. The location was great especially since I ran the Paris Marathon and had a comfortable walk to the starting line on the Champs-Elysees.

The rooms were fresh and big enough for two persons. Breakfast was ok and they also had a teatime buffet everyday and some free soft drinks in the room. Wi-Fi in our room worked fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. The common areas of the hotel are not very flashy and when we came there we almost missed it since we hardly noticed the hotel from the outside.

All in all we really liked the hotel and warmly recommend it. If you are seeking something flashy with with huge lobby and restaurant Friedland might not be the right option for you. If you are looking for a nice and fresh room to sleep and rest in, good location and a good breakfast you should really consider Friedland when you are shopping for a hotel in Paris.
