Best Western Hotel Mercedes Arc De Triomphe
Ranked #796 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

I've stayed in more luxurious places, but this was a very nice hotel. Great location, great value, and very friendly and hospitable staff.
The room was nicely appointed, clean, and very well air-conditioned.
Don't expect to use the elevator for every trip up and down, but this is not minor inconvenience for such a lovely historical hotel.
I recommend the nearby cafés for any meal. They were all wonderful.

Stayed: July 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Mercedes in early August on our first trip to Paris. The pink, art deco facade was interesting and helped us recognize the hotel upon emerging from the wagram metro station. We had a first floor room, right above the lobby overlooking the coffee shop across the street (which amazingly is closed on weekends) so we had no need to use the tiny elevator. We noticed children (with no luggage) were frequent users, probably more of a novelty than actually needing a ride. Ours was a deluxe room with a comfortable king size bed, mini fridge and AC that actually worked. The only issue with the room was the small glass partition attached to the side of the tub, meant to be a shower curtain. It was absolutely useless as we were never able to shower without creating slippery puddles on the tiled bathroom floor. Wifi was intermittent, good in early morning but difficult to access in the evening. I read a review on another site that said their wifi is limited to 10 devices at a time. We found the hotel staff to be extremely friendly and helpful with the ability to communicate in english very much appreciated. Having the store right next door was a godsend, only wished they were open later in the evening as we were caught a couple times faced with a locked door upon returning from a day's sightseeing. Overall, the Mercedes served us well as a base for our daily sightseeing trips around Paris.

Room Tip: the elevator is tiny, if you have large suitcases you may want to request a room on a lower floor so...

I took my teenage daughter here for our 1st trip to Paris ..
we had a wonderful time and booked B&B for 4 days..
We enjoyed our stay from the full breakfast on offer to the clean bedroom ..
To be honest we did not spend a lot of time in the hotel but as a base it was great ...
Metro near by to the sights & sounds of the streets while we slept ..

How can this hotel be rated as a 4 star? When checking in a lady, who seemed to be quite upset, was speaking with the receptionist in French. I checked in and got a voucher to use the internet but once in the room it didn't work. After telling my colleague who was with me in the reception, he told me that the lady was complaining about that that night. The internet never worked during the three night I stayed here. The cable TV only worked one night and there was only one channel in other language than French, CNN. When checking out they still had the courage of tell me that I took chocolate and chips from the minibar. I have stayed in 2-4 stars hotels and I would't complain that much it this would have been rated as a 2 star.The pictures at hotels.com give you a fake idea of what it really is.
