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.
"Tiny hotel in Paris most expensive area"
We booked this hotel at very last minute because we were doubting whether we'd still go to Paris or not. The weather in January was not at its best and taking a small child gave us not a good feeling about it. We got a very good deal no breakfast included. When we arrived in the hotel which was easy to find, we were very surprised that it has a very small front desk, and very small lift. It could only fit 2-3 pers I guess. But the room was lovely, although was also very small, but the bathroom was big enough. We enjoyed our stay there but we will not stay at this hotel again if we ever visit Paris in the future. We have a kid and he needs some space to move and it isn't possible in this hotel.
"Four nights in paris"
A tiny hotel with no reception but clean and modern. The bath room is small but nicely done with a nice shower . A nesspersso machine is a big plus. I don't recommend the hotel I you are planning to travel with a lot of luggage.. Nice stuff ... but don't pay too much for it
"Tiny Tiny Hotel - but great location!"
We had a long 4 day weekend in Paris and stayed here. Given the pictures and the Best Western reputation, we thought it would be great. Location is indeed super close to the Champs Elysee - worth it from this perspective, however only this! Took us a while to find the hotel, and when we did we were greeted by a small glass slide door, a tiny reception and a confused receptionist. Our room was on the top floor, "best one" she said, however I would be curious if ours was the best how were the rest. The elevator is tiny tiny - can only fit 1 person and a suitcase. When entering the room I was surprised it was a duplex: bathroom with 2 armchairs and a vanity on the bottom and the bed with a luggage storage space upstairs. There was also a built in small wardrobe on the bottom, that had the safe box too and a tiny minibar. Some chips bags were thrown on the bottom of the wardrobe for us as "part" of the minibar. The bed was comfy - however the stairs to get to it were steep and it was impossible to get any suitcase up. If it was dark, it was super easy to step wrong and fall. Bathroom on the other hand was very nice, had everything and was nicely spaced. Breakfast was dreadful (sorry to say it but it's true). It's at -1 (basement), 3 tables and that's it - you need to wait for others to be done. Not that much selection - if you're lucky you find something available - omelette you get on order which tasted good, but good luck having some bread left to eat it with. Resources are slim here. Had an issue with the room key - it demagnetised and it took me 3 trips downstairs to get somebody to actually replace it instead of just "Re-activating it", which clearly didn't work. I honestly wouldn't recommended unless you aren't picky about small rooms, no breakfast and want an amazing location, close to the metro, good restaurants and shops.
"Great location! "
Spent 3 nights here over the Tour de France weekend, and was exactly what we were looking for! Close to the champs elysee for easy access to the racing but also walking distance to many other tourist locations! Room is small- but we spent minimum time in the room, but we were allowed to check in at 11am instead of 3pm which was a god send after our flight getting in at 8am! Air conditioning unit worked a treat- and being on the 6th floor we had no noise at all. Lift was always available if we needed it, and can't complain about how small it was when you look at the hotel! Reception were very friendly, but special shout out to the gentleman who was on evening on 23/7- you were a great help to us and even offering to call us a taxi. Great stay, and if we were to return for the cycling- we would certainly look at returning there!
"We won't be back!"
This is the smallest, worst hotel we've stayed in for years. Everything is tiny, tiny,tiny. The staff are simply 'working a job' and are not interested in customers. Included in our room rate was 'Hot American breakfast' for 19 euros which consists of old cereal, patchy fruit and occasional boiled eggs. On our second day here they simply said 'we have no eggs today'. You can get twice as much for half this price across the road and it's fresh. Their E19 breakfast is a rip off and false advertising.The staff who work here are unhelpful and some know little about this hotel. The reviews of this hotel praise it as 'central to everything'. If you're expecting the romantic dream of the 'old Paris Champs-Elysées' forget it. The area is full of beggars, refugees, con artists, gangs and there are NO French people - mostly Africans, Middle Easterners and Asians all paying for over-priced stuff in the shops. Machine gun police are everywhere and even the Disney Store has armed security. We walked at 6am this morning and people were peeing and pooping everywhere. So basically you are close to everything you don't want. We definitely won't be back to Champs Elysees or Best Western.
