I travelled to Paris with my wife after a 4 year absence from the city.
This time we stayed at the Plaza Tour Eiffel, after reading good comments on trip advisor.
The hotel reception staff were excellent, they speak very good english and helped us with our basic understanding of French.
We forgot a travel plug and they were able to provide one for us throughout our stay, free of charge, which we returned on departure.
The room was small, as they always seem to be in Paris, but clean and well presented with a modern feel. The street outside was very quiet and the bed very comfortable.
The Eiffel Tower is a fifteen minute walk, past the Trocadero and across the river.
The Champs Elysees a similair walk turning left at the Trocadero.
The Batobus has a stop just by the Eiffel Tower and you can get a six stop tour for just 15 Euros for one day pass or 18 Euros for a two day pass.
Boats berth every 25 minutes through the day, a good way to get about to Notre Dame, The Louvre, the Hotel de Ville and other stops.
Notre Dame is a good visit on a Sunday because the wine and cheese producers from the South of France hold markets on the river bank, catch glasses and bottles of red, white and Rose wine, cheeses, snails, pastries etc and enjoy the atmosphere as you sit by the river.
The cafe's at the Trocadero are very expensive with a 75cl bottle of white wine typically costing 33 to 38 euros.
The cafe prices are more reasonable if you turn left at the Trocadero toward's the Champs Elysees, wine is about 25 euros along there.
The hotel served American / European breakfast, which was plentiful with a good bread selection included. There is more than enough to set you up for the day.
We were very happy with the hotel, free WiFi access in reception, a selection of newspapers to browse, a relaxed lounge area to catch a little breath, excellent staff and a high level of cleanliness and attention to service.
We will return at stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
