“Genuine French Affair”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Well situated near the Arc de Triomphe and metro, with at least seven cafe/resturants to choose from within minutes walking. This hot July the airconditioning was fabulous. The furnishings and decoration were elegantly 'french'. With breakfast included this was good value and the staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English.

Room Tip: We asked about the view and were assured we would have a 'street view' but looked out on an...

This hotel, is very small, not luxurious in any way, or even close to international 4 star service, but yet, it is such a great hotel to stay in Paris, as it really adds to the atmosphere of the city, the whole setup is so classic and full of character, cold breakfast is more than sufficient and the front desk staff, although battling with English, really go out of their way to provide great service.

Rooms were clean, bathroom, was more than good enough, and we really did enjoy our stay.



If you are stopping over in Paris for 1-3 days it's perfect, wouldn't stay there for longer than that though.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our latest visit to the City of Light, despite the heat and the crowds gathered to see the arrival of the 100th Tour de France. The Etoile Saint Ferdinand played a major part in this.
The staff were always friendly and obliging. The room (303) was clean and the beds comfortable. The air-con worked very well (thank goodness!).
The breakfast was good and the "lunchbox" a good start to any picnic although an apple or a banana would have been welcome.
The location was excellent, just off a small square with a choice of restaurants and the essential bakery. Two Metro stations are within ten minutes walk; we walk slowly! The bustling Avenue de la Grande Armee and Avenue Ternes like at either end of the Rue Saint Ferdinand. The 73 bus gives easy access to the city centre.
We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: 303 is a good quiet room

This is a nice little hotel. I was in Paris on business, but the location was close enough to the center of Paris that I was easily able to get out and explore the city a bit during the hours I was not working. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the Arc d'Triomphe depending on how fast you go, then you're right there at the Champs Elysees. It's also in a nice little area with a good selection of restaurants, shops, etc.

The room was very small but clean. There was no ironing board or iron in the room, which was inconvenient, but you could check one out at reception for no fee. Breakfast was good if not elaborate. The wifi signal was included in my rate and offered good quality.

Above all, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel.

Super hotel in a very nice neighborhood in close proximity to some very nice restaurants Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Surrounding area is quiet so the windows can remain open at night without any disturbance. Air-conditioning is not the best but the room is naturally cool enough. I would stay there again.

We received fantastic service from this hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful allowing us the use of their office to print plane boarding passes and then allowing us to eat the included breakfast an hour before it started. The area has a lot of eating places nearby and transport on the metro is handy as well. The room was great.

My first trip to France, and I was a little nervous not knowing the language, and the areas around Paris. I found the hotel through Trip Advisor, and took a chance based on the good reviews it received. I could not be any happier of our choice to stay there. The hotel was very quaint, clean and close by to the heart of the city, yet tucked away on a quiet street. The staff was wonderful! They spoke fluent English (which was a great benefit to me and my family) and were so pleasant and kind to us. They offered to help in anyway they could. The rooms were not as spacious as those typically found in the US, but that did not bother us in the least. We were happy with our hotel during our stay. We were so appreciative of their hospitality. I would definitely go back.
