Online booking system is terrible. Hotel charges for stays that are not confirmed. Terrible customer service. No help. Will not reverse charges following their mistake! Should be able to give zero stars.

We chose Hotel L'amiral while we had read other's reviews about it. Our main reason to choose was it's location as it is about 30 min walking to the Eiffel which is a relief (however this is not a straightforward & easy rout). The bad thing is that it is a bit hard to find the hotel. We were lucky that Parisian people were really friendly in helping us with finding addresses even with poor english!
The hotel is just basic in my opinion. We got a very small room with a backyard view. It was just after the first day that we found out there were empty rooms with Eiffel view that we could move if we want.
The elevator was very small. Room was not so clean. Bed coverings were old & worn out. The bathroom was big enough, reasonably clean & there was a bath tub.There was no minibar. WiFi connection was fast in the room.
The most annoying thing was the toilet odor since the ventilation system didn't work in the bathroom & we had to leave the window open always.
The staff was friendly & helpful. They prepared us what we asked for. They gave us an iron which we desperately needed! Also we asked for some boiled water & they brought us a full tea service with no extra charge!
Overall, it was OK for 2-3 nights since hotels in Paris are often expensive with poor quality.

reception; the stuf were nice but they were not helpful
the manger was rude, the hotel take from my master card the price twice, and i had problem between the bank and the hotel.

the room was old fashion and very small not like i saw it in booking.com.
the Elevator very small and takes ages to go up.

Room Tip: take room in first floor because Elevator is bad

Location : Very good. Very central. Most eateries are round the corner. The Vaugigard metro station is nearby too.
Ambience, & hotel stay : We were three of us on a budget trip so took up a double room with an extra bed, and cost wise was very effective ! But sadly, what you see in pictures is what you get. Not an inch more not an inch less. So yes, for 3 people, it was quite cramped. With the beds, a table & 3 suitcases we had to literally jump around to navigate the room. BUt then, we werent complaining that much, since we spent the least amount of sleeping hrs in this room.
Ambience was decent overall.
Staff : Were a little grumpy. the ones who understood english were not exactly helpful, and the girl who didnt converse very well in english was utterly sweet. So, you know! we found our way around thanks to pamphlets :)
The life and the staircase are worth mentioning - The lift was extremely tiny. Would hold one person & one suitcase & thats about it. And trust me, if you suffer from a wee bit of claustrophobia, you will probably decease in there! So yeah we managed again...climbing 4 levels through the spiral staircase. Each day at least 4 times up n down for 4 days! :)
Price : Very cost effective for budget travellers!

Amiral is a nice hotel which is just some 2 KMs from the Eiffel. Its also 5 minutes walking distance from vaugirard Metro station. The rooms are small, but well maintained. You will be greeted by friendly staff and who are ready to help you out with any sort of queries you may have.

This hotel has free Wifi, though the reception will be poor as you go high up. So if you prefer to have Wifi, its better to opt for a room in the first three floors. The only problem is with the Hotel is the cramped lift, which is quite archaic and could just hold 3 people at a time.

We picked L'Amiral for a cheap weekend break in Paris,we paid 320 euros for 3 nights and compared to other hotels in paris this was very resonable.The hotel is in a lovely area which feels safe even at night.The rooms are well appointed and very clean and the bathroom is a resonable size (i was expecting to not be able to turn around after reading some reviews!) We had a room on the top floor of the hotel and a fab view of the Eiffel tower! The room had double windows which made it feel very Parisian!
The bed was really comfy and we didnt hear a nosie from the streets below so slept really well.The staff were really friendly and we got some recomendations for some fantastic resturants and bars so do ask!
The only few downsides are the location-it is about a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel tower and then its a further 10-15 mins before you are near any resturants,shopping and even further still to any of the other famous landmarks in Paris.Yes there is a metro station very near by but personally i wouldnt use the metro at night.
The only other thing was the cleaning lady was very loud on a morning-you could hear her in the other rooms from very early. Generally the hotel is really great and very friendly and besides the location is everything you need.

After spending several evenings searching the internet for a hotel in Paris I had become used to the idea that Paris hotel rooms are small, therefore the size of our room at the L'Amiral was no surprise. However, we didn't visit Paris to spend all of our time in a hotel room, so the small size wasn't really important to us. It cost €445.00 for 5 nights in a room with 3 single beds plus a small desk and chair. This, by Parisian standards, is quite cheap. The room had a good supply of electric sockets enabling us to power 2 PCs (free wireless access to the internet is available) plus phone and camera chargers and our daughter's hair tongs etc., etc. The room was clean and bed-linen and towels were changed daily. The bathroom was also very small, with a constant supply of very hot water available. The hotel has a lift that's big enough for 3 people (or one person and 3 suitcases).

Breakfast was listed at €8.50 per person and consisted of just tea/coffee/orange juice plus a croisant and small baguette with various spreads, and I thought this was a little expensive for what was offered.

The hotel's location is quite good, being just 250 metres from Vaugirard Metro station and 2.25 km (1.4 miles) from the Eiffel Tower. The immediate neighbourhood is quiet but within a few hundred yards there are lots of shops, bars and restaurants (I can recommend the nearby "Le Bugatti" Italian restaurant for a really friendly atmosphere and good value. It's on the corner of Rue Du Docteur Jacquemarie -Clemenceu and Rue Madamoiselle, 400 metres from the hotel).

Our teenage daughter sarcastically nicknamed the young woman on the reception desk when we arrived as "Little Miss Cheerful" because she always seemed very serious but generally the five people we met on reception were friendly enough, although one woman didn't speak much English. I was a bit disappointed to discover that because of "computer security" the hotel wouldn't print our airline boarding passes that I had stored on a USB memory stick so I had to go to a nearby copying service to do it.

Overall, if you just want a roof over your head and a clean bed for the night in a quiet area not too far from the city centre at a reasonable price I'd recommend L'Amiral. For comparison the Novotel, 350 metres away, on the same dates would have offered a bit more luxury but at a cost of €810.
