“Super location near Eiffel Tower”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Very nice hotel, close to Eiffeltower, and within walking distance of Invalides, Eiffel Tower, St Germain des Près, Alma... very good location.
Clean room, good bed, quiet street. Bathroom was OK (small, but that's Paris). Friendly staff. Exactly what we needed for a city trip.

Stay was in late June 2014 for 3 nights. The hotel is well located near the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River. Quiet street with great restaurants, fruit stands and cafes. Big drawback is lack of air conditioning. My room (#1) was stuffy. The fan provided only moved warm stale air. The only window was right on to the sidewalk. I was not comfortable leaving it open at night. Not sure of the safety of the area. Sleep was difficult with the room air situation. Otherwise a great place for venturing out to different tourist stops. Staff was very helpful and spoke very good English..a real plus. Internet was intermittent! Had to go to lobby several times to get a signal. My grandson on 4th floor could not get a signal at all. As others have mentioned the rooms are very small but that was not a problem for me as we spent our time sightseeing and not in the room except for sleeping. Breakfast expensive for limited items. The small patio off the main floor in the back was delightful. We shared wine, fruit and cheese one evening as our evening meal.

Room Tip: If offered room #1 refuse and ask for another.

I stayed here with my partner the hotel is situated a short walk to eiffel tower and cafes. Paris alone is very pricey however this hotel was well worth the money. The room was small but it was fine for one nights stay

First of all the room was not as expected. The pictures we had seen on the website were nowhere near a true reflection of the rooms. The bed was uncomfortable and there was barely any room to walk around, whereas the pictures showed lovely spacious rooms.

The breakfast we had that cost us 7 euros each consisted of a couple of croissants and coffee that had been sat there for an eternity. There was orange juice and milk available but they had run out and nobody seemed bothered enough to replace it.

The only redeeming quality's was the fact that there were lovely cafes around the hotel so you could go elsewhere to eat, also the hotel is very close to the eiffel tower.

All in all an overpriced room that is best used for sleeping (if you don't mind a noisy elevator and being able to hear everything else that goes on in the hotel)

Avoid

We stayed here in April as a young couple and were pleased with our selection of hotel. The location is perfect, a short 5 minute walk until you see the beautiful sights of the tower. The room was pretty basic (but very clean) but we were only there to sleep and spent all the time we could out in the city so it was fine for us and there was a safe in the cupboard which is handy. We had asked for a room with a view of the tower as we were celebrating an anniversary and that would have been a nice touch but we were given a room on the 3rd floor looking onto the courtyard and other rooms but we didn't ask to get moved and the room was fine there anyway. The staff were all very friendly, I could probably guess the one other reviewers are complaining about but we didn't have much dealings with him, everyone else was really nice. They arranged for our airport pick up on the way home which was great as we had got buses and metro on the way there which isn't easy with cases. There are lots of nice cafes round about for breakfast and restaurants for dinner before heading over to the tower side. We would definitely think about using this hotel again if we returned to Paris.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is VERY close to the Eiffel Tower, it took us maybe 5-7 minutes from the hotel to get there.

Near the hotel there's quite a few souvenir shops and restaurants and cafés so there's no problem finding something to eat- we'd have breakfast at this delicious cafe near the hotel.

This hotel was a bit overpriced for what you get. The rooms are quite small, the bed isn't that comfortable, the bathroom drain wasn't working properly so the water would accumulate while showering instead of going down, the wifi connection isn't the greatest either.

If you're just looking for a simple hotel that's close to the tower and on a budget then this would be it... I wouldn't stay here again though.

O hotel é muito bom. Tem uma ótima localização (5 mins. a pé da Torre Eiffel, estação de metrô próxima). O quarto é pequeno (se você quiser passar sua viagem toda dentro dele) e muito limpo. Café da manhã sem regalias, mas bem montado. A wi-fi não funciona bem no quarto, tivemos que usá-la no lobby. Recepcionistas simpáticos e atenciosos, falam francês (obviamente) e ingles.

The hotel is very good. It's in an excellent location (5 mins. on foot to the Eiffel Tower, subway station nearby). The bedroom is small (if you want to spend your whole trip in it) and very clean. The breakfast is good, not so many options but good. The wi-fi connection is not good in the bedroom, we had to use it in the lobby. The receptionists are nice and helpful, they speak French (obviously) and English.
