The Elysee Secret Hotel is located on the Right Bank of Paris city centre, in the 8th district. Its central location, just a few steps from the Champs Elysees, sets the Hotel Elysee Secret at the meeting point of business, luxury and nightlife. The rue de Ponthieu which runs from the Carre Marigny to the rue de Berri is close to the shops of the Montaigne Avenue, the trendy addresses of the Champs Elysees, the Grand Palais and the Elysee palace. The Elysee Secret Hotel is the perfect point of departure to explore the most famous monuments of Paris on foot (Arc de Triomphe, Trocadero, Concorde, Tuileries Gardens ...) and museums of Paris (Louvre museum, Guimet Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Grand Palais and Petit Palais, Jeu de Paume, Orangerie ...). Right in the heart of Paris, the hotel is served by the metro lines 1 and 9 (Franklin D. Roosevelt) and is also close to metro line 13 (Champs Elysees Clemenceau) and the RER A (Charles de Gaulle - Etoile), giving quick access to all the major sights of the city.
"wouldn't honor pre-paid reservation made over 6 months in advance via amex travel"
despite a lot of research to select this location and hotel and a fully pre-paid reservation made over 6 months in advance, showed up with our bags mid afternoon only to be told they have no space and we have WALK (with our bags) to a different hotel a several blocks away (and several blocks further from metro stops, etc.) ... neither the hotel nor amex travel would give us any compensation for their mistake so I assume this is the usual way of doing business for both ... so book with caution... or just spin the roulette wheel. Thankfully the place they moved us, Hotel Beauchamps was nice and included complimentary breakfast
"Nice room. "
We stayed here for 4 nights last week. A nice room. Friendly hotel staff, we were able to check in a little early. The room was small, but what one would expect unless you're paying the big bucks for a suite. Our room was on the corner facing two streets so it was a little noisy with the windows open. The free mini bar was very nice. There's a bakery right across the street, so no need to pay for the hotels breakfast.
"Location, location, location "
One block from the worlds most famous avenue. Place is tiny, but that is Paris. Very clean and well kept. Price included complementary mini bar. That was a huge perk considering I drink a lot of water. Beautiful views from the room. I slept with the window open only because I love the fresh air, thus not a loud street. Nice big queen bed. To be honest, we got the deal of a lifetime thanks to Venere.com having a malfunction. Not sure I would of paid more than €150 a night, but that is me as I'm budget cautious. Did not try the breakfast as there was an amazing cafe kitty corner from hotel. Staff was very helpful! Loved the location and the nice room.
"Don't usually review but..."
This hotel was meant to be a nice luxury for the end of our trip so we spent a bit extra. We walk into this small hotel. Smells terrible, staff were not welcoming more like 'here's your key here's your room now piss off'. She didn't even come into the room and explain what how the hotel works like every other hotel we've been too. We stayed in the boudoir suite and was as smaller our rooms in a 3star hotel in central Rome. The bed was two singles pushed together which is normal for Europe but they aren't usually different heights and gap In-between. In each room had a room service booklet which was available between 12pm-12am. Every time we tried to order something which would be around 3pm, they would say that, unfortunately they had sold out for the DAY. Also they say rooms are sound proof. They are not sound proof. We weren't given any extra shampoos or soaps after the first day which you get in every other hotel. Cleaners were rude, and would tell me to take the stairs because they were using the elevator but would leave multiple vacuums and bags lying around the stairs which is a major occupational heath and safety issue. Only good thing about this hotel was location. This hotel is not a 4 star hotel. Quite sad end to our trip.
"location is fantastic"
The location of this hotel was fantastic, Just 1 block from Champs Elysee. Rooms were very tiny and expensive but that seems to be the norm in Paris. Overall, quiet , clean and comfortable bed. Everything you could ask for in a hotel for a short stay in Paris. I just wish there was a little more space to put our luggage but the room size seems normal for Paris.
