Summary


Pros

  • High-end boutique hotel originally built as private residence
  • Individually decorated rooms have quintessential Parisian charm
  • Cheerful breakfast room with skylight (breakfast can be served in-room, too)
  • Great location, three blocks from the Champs-Elysees
  • Close to nearby restaurants and bars (trattoria across the street)
  • Flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and minibars
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 2 common lounges with picture windows offer wonderful views of city
  • Some rooms on the 6th floor have views of the Eiffel Tower

Cons

  • Breakfast is pricey
  • Ground floor rooms can be noisy because of proximity to the kitchen
  • Nearby cafes and bars close early
  • Smoking permitted in many rooms (a pro for some)

Bottom Line

The Bradford Elysees -- part of the Astotel group, with 17 hotels in Paris -- is an attractive boutique hotel offering Parisian elegance and good value. Aptly named for its close proximity to Champs Elysees (three blocks away), it's close to tons of good restaurants, bars, and shopping, yet still quiet due to its location on the quaint Rue St. Phillipe. The hotel was originally built as a private residence, and it's quite charming. The rooms are individually decorated in old Parisian style, and they're updated and modern with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks (ask for a room on the sixth floor for possible views of the Eiffel Tower). The only thing missing is a restaurant -- there's only breakfast, and it comes at a high cost. But most guests don't mind since there are tons of options right nearby.
