paris hotel, residence bassano, for real?

Tripadvisor lists this hotel as #1 in Paris, but I can't seem to find it listed in Fodors, Frommers, or anywhere else, for that matter. Anyone ever stay there?

Curious. I note several TripAdvisor reviewers were from the U.K. and Australia. Perhaps the hotel is popular in the Cadogan guide (or that other English guidebook, is it the Blue Guide?) or had some exposure/advertising in the London Times, etc.

This certainly points out the inherent flaw with TripAdvisor. Only 19 reviews over an entire year, but they were all glowing. Voila! #1!

One site suggests that this hotel is also known as the Hotel Elysees Regencia. Maybe a recent change of ownership? With upgrades? It takes some time for guidebooks to catch up.

i don't know if this info will help or not as i have never stayed there....but did stay in an apartment on rue bassano in february and walked passed the residence bassano several times a day. it looked very lovely from the outside and always had chic, businessy people entering and exiting. what i will tell you is that the location is fabulous! two blocks from the george v metro stop on the champs elysees. let us know if you stay there!
