I stayed for three nights at the Best Western Star Champs Elysées. I have to admit, this hotel was not my choice as this was a business/seminar trip but I could not have been happier with my stay.
The hotel is situated on a small street behind the L'Arc de Triomphe. It is also very close to the Air France stop (just 3-5 minutes walk away). The location, although not grand, provides a good sleep quality as it is away from the bigger streets. You also have a plethora of restaurants and bars around you and the closest metro stop is only 3-5 minutes walk away.
The room was small but cozy and kept spotless by the cleaning service. The bed (which is usually the gripe for many hotels around the world) was firm but comfortable and the pillows and duvets were soft and fluffy. There's a free wifi that worked without a hitch in the room (but connection would be lost in the downstairs breakfast room).
The front desk service is friendly and effective. It was nice to exchange some pleasantries with the staff and during my whole stay I felt that if I would have had a problem with anything, they would have helped me promptly. I lost my towel (which happened to be white just like the hotel towels) and it was returned to me laundered (the cleaner must have taken it by mistake). Also the check-in and check-out processes were handled very quick. The reason why I couldn't give a full five stars for service is because of the breakfast room service. The tables were not cleaned very quickly and sometimes guests had to wait to get a seat (as did I once and it was just before 8am). Also, the guy working at the breakfast room would speak in a very low voice and only in French which caused some problems with my language skills. The weird thing about this was that everytime I was leaving the breakfast room, he would regain his ability to speak English. This happened each morning. If the breakfast room service had been a bit more fluid, I would have given five stars for service.
The breakfast is served in a downstairs room. The room gets really warm (at least in the spring and summer) so I suggest dressing accordingly. The buffet breakfast is good and you get fresh juice, bread, cold cuts, cheese, yoghurt, cereal, eggs, sausages, fruit etc. from a buffet table. You also get tea or coffee upon request (included in the breakfast).
Even though I chose this hotel because it was suggested to me by the seminar arranger and I would probably naver had ended up there on my own, I really liked the place. The best things for me were the location and the sleep quality. I love it when hotels have real duvets and not those blanket+sheet combos. So if these are the things you value, you won't be disappointed.
