Historical Traveler Reviews Eiffel Capitol Hotel Paris
Wonderful weekend in Paris
My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend in Paris at the Captital Eiffel hotel. The rooms are small but very clean and tidy. Anyway who needs lots of space when you are only sleeping there as there is simply too much to do in Paris to spend time at the hotel. The Eiffel Tower is spectacular especially at night when it is all lit up and every hour when it quite literally "sparkles". We took the Open Bus tours during the day and saw all of the wonderful sights of Paris. Unfortunately a weekend is not long enough to study all of the museums but I have at least seen the places that you are always hearing about. On the Saturday night, we took a river cruise and experienced Paris illuminated. Well worth it. The city is amazing.
Stayed at the Regetel Eiffel Capitol just blocks from the Eiffel Tower. Very good budget hotel; great location, small rooms, as expected, extremely clean bathrooms. Windows opened to a roof top view of Paris and the spot light from the Eiffel Tower could be seen outside our window. Many local super markets along the streets; you can save yourself about 20-30 Euro by eating one meal a day from one of those stores. When dining out the wine is cheaper than the water and most restaurants add the gratuity automatically. Try 38 Eiffel Tower, a little restaurant on your way from the Regetel to the tower; excellent food and very friendly service. Take the double-deck, red tour bus; you get a 2-day pass and it takes you to most of the major attractions. The people of Paris were very friendly and courteous. Enjoy your stay!
We were very happy there
We stayed at the Hotel Eiffel Capitol for 4 nights and were very happy there.
The hotel staff was polite and very helpful. We found the rooms to be clean and not nearly as tiny as other European hotel rooms we've been in. The breakfast was also good, consisting of scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, assorted breakfast rolls and croissants. The location was ideal! A 3-minute walk to the metro and a 15-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. We would stay there again.
Three star hotels in Paris are somewhat below London standards, and must come as a shock to some Americans, to judge by some of the reviews here. This is an adequate hotel and the staff were helpful, though they either need a new vacuum cleaner or a new housekeeper as standards of cleanliness were not good enough.
Eiffel Capital is a quaint hotel on a quiet street with picturesque atmosphere that lets you know you are in Europe. While the rooms are small and the elevator smaller, the staff has big heart and personality and the breakfast is hearty and plentiful. Look out your window; you can see the metro, just steps away. This is the Perfect location for taking in the entire city. Also it is an easy to walk to the Seine and the Eiffel Tower and around great Parisian neighborhoods. Try the pizza place across the street for friendly late night service. I would go back tomorrow!!
Pretty bad for the price.
I was very disappointed in this hotel. For the price of 110 US per night or more, it was fairly crummy. We spent two nights here. When we arrived, the reception guy made some mocking remark about my appearance, made fun of my French and otherwise showed no respect for the fact that we had traveled thousands of miles to arrive there. The room was so small it was quite depressing. I had to put a bright face on it for my nephew's sake, but this kind of hotel is strictly for a place to keep your stuff and lay your head down at night, not to enjoy as a pleasant hotel. The breakfast was unimpressive and overpriced, albeit filling. There were the usual cereals and eggs, with croissants, cheeses, butter and jam. The waitress was evidently in no mood to put up with my attempts to politely converse with her. The neighborhood is tacky and a real downer. Bottom line: A lot of money spent for a bunch of bad memories. Blah. Spend a little more and try the "Hotel Splendid" on Avenue de Tourville.
Its ok if you are looking for a budget place to stay. There are obviously better accomodations but if you are looking for a place to rest your head and store you luggage this place is fine. The rooms are small but its traditionally what you would get in Europe. The Dupleix metro station has a market on sundays which offers fresh cooked and raw foods as well as a variety of goodies and only minutes from the hotel. The hotel staff was friendly and yes they do charge for the breakfast, if you do not want to eat there simply advise them in the beginning when you check in (we had the charge refunded at checkout and it was a bit of an ordeal), and from the reviews of the breakfast I would pass and venture somewhere else. Its overall not a bad little hotel, if you are not too picky and the price is right.
Don't Stay Here
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and would advise against staying here. The rooms are tiny and the facilities VERY basic. I had someone elses hair on my pillow case and it is a very noisy location. The included breakfast was a joke, consisting of cereal until they ran out and didn't bother getting any more, dry pastries, ham and salami (ham was off), there was only bread for the toaster on our first day and that was not replaced again, etc etc need I say more. The service was typical of Paris, so nothing really out of the ordinary there. Unless you are on the very top floor you do not have a view of the eiffel tower(actual I doubt they have a view either). In conclusion, this should be a last resort for you when deciding on your accomodation. Best of Luck!
Incredibly bad experience! Never choose this!
In few words... First they lost our reservation (done by internet at ---------------) and when my boyfriend arrived they had him hours waiting and they were not helping at all. Then, when I arrived they were "friendly" delaying as much as possible finding the reservation. Finally they found it! Even all this happened and we lost 5 hours, they didn't give anything as a "courtesy" as it is used in good quality hotels.By the opposite, they "forgot" to mention that the breakfast was not include since we had some kind of promotion and they charged 12e for each person for each breakfast... I have to say that the super-breakfast consisted in cold bread, few ham, chesse, very bad cooked eggs, juice and coffee (and for this 12e!!!!).The worse is that the rooms are extremely small, the toilet was broken, they gave just one towel per person, the shower barely worked and in the TV just channels in french (is that the "cable TV" that they advertise?!).And, when we left the hotel, the self-called manager was in incredibly bad mood! We tried to be patient and ask why was she charging the breakfast (after they made us wait 5 hours for the room!) and she just got histeric. We just paid, left and promise to ourselves to write this review for possible next victims, so here it is.
Really Quite Good
My family and I stayed at the Hotel Eiffel in the summer of 2001, and it was really a fine hotel. The rooms were ample, the bathrooms were clean, and the breakfasts were of high quality. The staff was always helpful with any questions we had about getting around Paris. The room rates were quite reasonable, I thought, given its location very near the Eiffel Tower and the Dupleix metro station. There were a great many places to eat nearby, including a market or two if that's what the traveler would prefer. Many places to shop and take care of basic services, too, if you're traveling on a budget and can't afford to pay people to do everything for you. It's not a five-star hotel, but then, my family and I are not five-star hotel kinds of people, so that was OK with us. I would recommend Hotel Eiffel Capitol to folks who want something a cut above 'just a place to rest my head overnight' but a step below 'all the luxuries of Paris.' Bonne journee!

... neighborhoods that make Paris so special. From the Latin Quarter to the Marais each district has its own flavor, style, architecture, and culture. Our apartment was in the 18th District up on the Montmartre Hill. Our living room window, aka Katie's bedroom, looked down on the artists and cafes below us. It was fun to watch the artists as they sketched tourists and worked on their next masterpiece. We walked by the Basilica Sacre Coeur every day ...
Where this intrepid traveler wisely elected for a $30 upgrade to a nice seat with a view... the take off from Billund was delayed as we needed to be de-iced, so when we arrived in Paris... I made it to the gate just as they were calling the flight...

It seemed a good idea when I booked my ticket. Why not fly Air France? Get a little taste of the culture, Rob. You know! Break in easy with a little English, little French. Acclimate over the Atlantic. Kinda ease into things. It's genius.
One small, teeny, tiny little flaw in my plan Just a minor oversight. Understandable miscalculation. Probably something anyone might have overlooked . . .

... fridge full of half used food and bed sheets covered in cat hair and smelling like cigarette smoke. Worst of all, a black cat jumped in the kitchen window behind me whilst i was trying to decifer a note on the back of the door about 'Britney le chat noir'. Scared me half to death. Found cat food in the kitchen so we confirmed that it does indeed live here. In retaliation we scared it back out the front door to where its food and water bowl was and ...
Last walk for London and headed south west to Kennington oval, and park. The overnight rain is gone and although not sunny still about 20 degrees - Great! Bags packed and down to the tube, couple of stops later we get to Kings Cross station then a short walk to where the Eurostar departs. Weird to think that in a few hours time we'll be in Paris. Here I am blogging ...
