Hotel Bradford Elysees - Astotel
Ranked #31 of 1,809 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 February 2014

The Hotel Bradford Elysees - Astotel was superb from start to finish. The moment we arrived we were greeted with multiple staff, all extremely friendly and helpful. My 'french' is extremely limited, but their english was very good and that immediately put me at ease.

I'd asked on the reservation for a special room as this trip was to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Champagne and petit fours greeted us in the most beautiful large room complete with balcony.

Every morning at breakfast we were greeted with great smiles and warming welcomes. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was a good standard (hot breakfast was cold if you were eating at a slightly later time) with plenty of choice and variety.

The hotels location is excellent. Short 2 minute walk from the Metro station and only 10 minutes walk to the Champs Elysee and the Arc de Tromphe.

Our corner room was slightly noisey at night, but you can't blame the hotel for idiots shouting in the street or the occasional motor bike screaming up and down! Classic hotels like the Bradford Elysees should not be ruined with modern sound proofing!

Overall this was brilliant and I will definately go back again in the future.

I have stayed at the Bradford a couple of times for business.

The location is fine, only a few minutes walking from Champs Elysees. During the day it's a busy area but at night there is not much going on.

On my last trip i got first assigned at room on first floor on the street corner. The rooms are not sound-proofed, so it gets very noisy from about 5am.
For breakfast there is a nice selection. Nothing extravagant but ok.
Rooms are very spacious for the part of Paris. The bathrooms have been renovated and look really good.

Wifi network is completely useless. Internet connection on a PC in the lobby comes at a charge!

The hotel still uses an elevator from what looks like the 50s. If you are in a hurry, better take the stairs!

This hotel is in a great location near the Champs Elysees but is still competitively priced. The location is off the main road and therefore the rooms are quiet. The rooms quite large for Paris, the hotel is clean and the staff friendly. A good breakfast too!

A wonderful hotel with great rooms, great staff in a great location. Nothing was too much for the staff here. The rooms are very spacious for Central Paris. The hotel gets the right mix of modern clean facilities and old world charm. I've stayed there three times before and will definitely do so again.

I had a quick trip to Paris and found this hotel by chance, no pre booking, was able to stay in the first hotel only one night so walked into the Bradford and spent two nights,my room being small which is the case in most popular cities in the world was very clean neat, free wifi and the bathroom equipped with all the modern needs, very quiet with many wonderful restaurants in the area and the Champs Elysees a short walk away and metro Saint-Philippe du-Roule very close,so easy 20-30 min total time by train and metro from CDG airport, nice breakfast was included, which is not the norm in Paris and in the main lobby you can have tea/coffee all day and they serve cake and cookies, also not the norm in Paris. The front dest were most helpful with any questions or concerns, spoke beautiful english. I will definitely return for another stay ASAP, had to leave early and go back to the USA as there was a illness in the family, wonderful hotel in Paris!

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay in the hotel despite of its downfalls mainly due to the very friendly and efficient staff especially Danny from the reception and Vincent from the breakfast.
The hotel itself is very central and within a short stroll to the Metro station and the Champs Elysees. It is in an area with numerous restaurants and cafes and some little shops too.

During our stay the hotel was under renovation, which was not very inviting espcially the room, (although is big compared to the Parisian standard), was very worn out with stained brown carpet. Also the first 3 nights I could not sleep due to the street noise as from 3am till maybe 6:00am people were shouting constantly and cars honking.

I wanted to leave the hotel, They were very polite and accomodated my request to leave with no penalties. Yet the manager offered me to be in the executive suite free of charge. Room was very nice. I appreciated very much their professionalism.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard if you like quiet like me. Also ask for a renovated room...

The area of the hotel is ideal, the staff paid attention to the tiniest detail. We received complimentary chocolates at our room when we arrived and wishing us a Happy Birthday from Manager. Flowers were on the bed on Valentine's Day and also another letter wishing a good stay. The hotel had free coffee and snacks all day, the breakfast was amazing and healthy. We really enjoyed our stay. One small comment to improve the hotel by adding sound proofing as I think there was a protest and the drivers at 2am loved pressing their horns, so it was slightly noisy but would have been the same in any other hotel in such a central location. Overall the hotel was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend it. Thank you for all your effort.
