“Very happy stay -- Great all around hotel”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I stayed here with my family for 3 nights in mid May and we were very happy with this hotel. First, the manager (Majid) was extremely kind and accommodating. The rest of the staff as well was very nice and flexible, letting us stay later for breakfast or take leftovers if we were late, etc. Overall, the staff just made us feel really comfortable and welcome (which can be rare for Paris) and that made a big difference in our stay. Second, the hotel's location was great -- just 2 mins walk to Blvd Haussman and 7 mins walk to the Champs Elysees and the Yellow metro line (which takes you all along the right bank to all the nicest sites). If you want to be central in Paris, this hotel is as good any you can find -- especially for the price. Rooms are small and tight (typical for Paris), but everything was nice and clean, including the bathrooms. The shower had amazing water pressure, the bed had clean new-looking sheets, and the mattresses were decent and firm. We had nice tall windows facing a garden, which made for a quiet room even when we left the windows open at night (again can be rare for Paris). Also, the breakfast was fantastic -- and it was served until later in the morning (so you don't have to wake up so early or miss it like most hotels make you do). The only thing I would say is that the staff wasn't too helpful on recommending restaurants. But all in all, after spending countless hours reading reviews and searching for hotels online, I'd say this hotel is fantastic value for your money in Paris. Most hotels for this price are in loud, dirty areas or far from the city center, or have terrible staff or old disgusting rooms. This place is truly a gem in that regard -- just great all around. I give it a 4.5 out of 5, and I would not look for another hotel if I was going back to Paris again.

We stayed in Hotel Arc Elysees for two days. The best thing about the hotel is its location. It was right off of Champ Elysees. We loved how we could walk to the best shopping street in all of Paris. It was also really close to Arc De Triumph and not too far away from the Eiffel Tower. However the room was very small and had an odor, we had to leave the windows open to get rid of the smell. Another issue was that when we arrived at the hotel around 3:30 PM, we were told that our booking was cancelled as the credit card did not go through and that they had sent us an phone and email. We checked our card statement, which said that the payment did go through, and we had not received any phone or emails. After a 30 min wait and calling other hotels, they gave us our room, so we were not sure what the drama was all about. It was definitely stressful and not appreciated at all. I am sure you could find other hotels that are better around that area.

This little hotel, very close to the Champs Élysées, is best described as a Friendly Hotel! The staff, M. Majid, M. Amit and the rest of the team try and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The rooms are competitively priced and a little larger than most other hotels in the neighbourhood in a similar category.

What makes it very attractive is, of course, the location! Takes three minutes or less, past authentic restaurants, to the famous Champs Élysées!

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing rue Washington on the higher floors.

If you are on budget, this hotel is very reasonably priced considering its good location. Along rue Washington, where this is located, there are 2 convenient stores (for your water needs) and about 4asian restaurants, just in case you crave for one during your long stay in Europe. The room is clean and spacious- we got the corner room 303. Our friend's room at 305 was 20% smaller than ours so better request for 303. great location and quiet neighborhood. 300meters away from LV champs élysées if you turn right coming out of the hotel, while the hop on and off bus stop was exactly on the end of the street (swatch store; corner of champs and rue Washington). If you turn left from the hotel lobby,on your way out,, that would be another shopping district named rue saint honore, towards louvre. This is a long walk of about 30-40mins but fun in view of the window shopping.

Room Tip: God Room would be corner - 303

In the middle of Paris where you like to spend your time outside the hotel, this little place is ok and convenient. Prices ok taking the location into account. The rooms too small to my liking. Fairly clean. A bit annoying having to wait at the entrance to get out while the receptionist is nowhere to be found.
I will try something else next time though.

A small and practical hotel in the business-focused area of the 8th arrondissement, just a 5min walk from the world-famous Champs-Elysees.

Service: friendly and professional.
Rooms: Small (and dark), but modernized, clean, comfortable. Bathroom was clean, modern, with good hot water and water pressure. Good TV channel selection.
Location: Good for business travellers with business in the area, or tourists who value being close to the Champs-Elysees. Hotel price is very inexpensive for this area.

Negative: N'accepte pas les Cheques Vacances. (only important for French guests)
