Amy Adejokun Section editor

Well-located close to the Champs Elysées, the Floride Etoile lies in a back street away from the hubbub of the capital. The hotel is basic and clean. It could do with a little spruce up. The staff is very friendly and willing. Guests can also use some of the facilities at sister hotel next door, the Garden Elysée. Ideal for families due to the connecting rooms on the ground floor.

    Location 5.38 /10

    Situated in one of the most sought-after residential districts of the city, the 16th, between metro Victor Hugo (line 2) and Trocadéro (lines 6 and 9), both a five minute walk away, it is very easy to get around Paris. Here you are never far from a major Parisian monument - be it the Trocadero, the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe and it is also a short walk away from the Champs Elysées. The area the hotel finds itself is very quiet and residential so if you are looking to step out of your hotel and stumble into Parisian nightlife action, this is not the place to be. The Garden Elysée is more suitable for a clientele that has already visited Paris and who feels comfortable in a quiet zone of the city. Other hotels of the same chain is the Garden Elysée (to the right of the Floride Etoile), Le A, parallel to the Champs Elysées and A la Villa des Artistes, in Montparnasse.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The Floride Etoile has 63 rooms. Expect to pay 86 Euros (£74) for a standard room in low season or 175 Euros (£151) in high season. The rooms are smell fresh and woody and are very basic. The furniture can be a little tatty in certain rooms which are in need of a re-vamp. The bathrooms are very fresh, clean and spacious, and most have a window, letting in lots of natural light which is rare in hotel bathrooms. The products are all Aloe Vera based. All rooms have flat-screen televisions, hair dryer, telephone, safe, mini-bar and various television channels including BBC World and CNN, as well as Spanish, Italian, Russian and German channels. The heating cannot be adjusted from the individual rooms, although air conditioning in the summer can be. For families or wheelchair-bound guests, there are two large connecting rooms, available on the ground floor, which both have an agreeable view of the Garden Elysée Hotel's well planted entrance. These rooms have recently been renovated.The rest of the rooms either have a view of the Garden Elysée entrance or the street - do ask for a room away from the street as the bin collectors can be a little noisy in the mornings.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The lobby is very traditional, painted in pastel colours, with ca ream tiled floor, mirrored ceiling and; flowery cushions lay on cream leather couches are arranged into five sitting areas with low unobtrusive lighting, making it a pleasant place to sit and wait for a taxi or a friend. The hotel décor is very basic and tired throughout. It is however very clean and tidy. Overall, the hotel needs a good spruce up. Despite the worn décor, management has made an effort to keep the premises clean, neat and tidy. The hotel can strike as a little cold; a good thing the staff's good humour heats up the surroundings a little. The Floride Etoile is a good choice in low season as the rates are fairly reasonable, the staff is extremely helpful and it is fairly central, close to the hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysées.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The hotel serves a buffet breakfast and is not equipped for lunch and dinner. The guest has the choice between a continental breakfast (10 Euros) and buffet (16 Euros). The buffet breakfast caters for most tastes. There is all sorts ? from the typically French Pain au chocolat and croissants to fresh fruit, juices (not freshly-squeezed), cereals, hams and cheeses, hard boiled eggs and a variety of breads. The 'viennoiseries', or pastries, are ordered from well-known French caterer, Le Nôtre. The breakfast is nicely organised and a big effort has been made to keep a tidy breakfast area, despite its slightly worn look, with fresh flowers on the tables and a view onto the Garden Elysée Hotel's entrance garden. Breakfast is served between 7am-10.30am. The hotel does not serve lunch or dinner, but light food such as soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts, as well as wine (about 15 Euros a bottle) are available to order via room service (from midday to 10pm daily). Each room has a menu, although it is not translated into English; reception staff will however be very happy to help you understand it, should you have any difficulties (prices range from 6 Euros to 20 Euros). Otherwise, be prepared to eat in the surrounding establishments which can be fairly dear.

    To know

    Although there is a small bar in the lobby at the entrance of the breakfast room, it remains closed most of the time, so clients wanting to have a drink have access to the Garden Elysée bar just next door. Floride Etoile clients also have access to the Garden Elysée television area (within reason). Most of the staff is trilingual with English as their second language. There is WIFI access but it is not free - cards are available at reception for either 6 or 10 Euros. There are a number of complimentary newspapers on offer such as the International Herald Tribune, the Financial Times, Le Figaro and El Pais. The staff is very friendly and lively here, creating a relaxed atmosphere. For families or wheelchair-bound guests, there are two large connecting rooms, available on the ground floor, which both have an agreeable view of the Garden Elysée Hotel's well planted entrance.

      The recently renovated Renaissance Parc Trocadéro is strategically located in the classy West end of Paris ? making it a perfect base camp both for those wishing to explore the numerous museums and attractions in the area and for those visiting France's capital on business. What's more, the hotel is fully deserving of its privileged address: mixing classic elegance with contemporary design, The Renaissance feels grand without being pretentious. Rooms spread over four buildings surround the calm inner courtyard, providing a green, fresh space away from the street from which to relax following a heavy day's sightseeing.

      Don't expect to be bowled over by the Waldorf Trocadéro. Despite the friendly welcome and good service in the rooms, there is neither a spa nor a restaurant. Basically, while the establishment is perfectly acceptable, it is unlikely to be a lasting memory.

      This boutique hotel with 45 rooms owes a lot of its class to the design work of Fréderic Méchiche. Though classical in many ways, its elegant use of vertical black and white stripes is reminiscent of the world of haute-couture, thus creating a clever mix of styles. Discrete and delicate.

      This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.

      The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.

Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.

      • Location 8.85

      Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
      Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.

      At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.

In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
