Hotel du Cadran Tour Eiffel
Travel Blogs from Paris
After two nights in Alsace, our next destination was Paris, but first we would visit Strasbourg. Strasbourg is the big city of Alsace, about an hour north of Colmar. We found a parking garage within walking distance of the cathedral and made our way to the historical city centre. Architecturally, old Strasbourg is similar to Colmar and the other …
We had quite an adventure getting here. Our flight from Orlando to JFK was delayed by an hour because they were limiting the number of planes going into JFK. When we arrived at JFK, we had to go to a different terminal to connect to our flight to Iceland. We had to hurry because we had less than an hour due to our delay. We had a bumpy flight from …
... We are creatures of comfort and when we find something we like we go back again. There is a café on Rue Cler that has a great French Onion soup, Robyn had been waiting 2 years to have this soup again and she was not disappointed.
Tomorrow we are going back to the Louvre since we want to see more of it, and we have tickets to go on a tour of the Eiffel Tower.
... we noticed that there were a lot, and I mean a LOT, of police gathering about. We were a bit uneasy and confused until we noticed the massive crowd of people moving up the street. A protest had taken to the streets. There was chanting, signs, banging drums, and firecrackers that kept sounding like guns and making me jumps.
We decided to do the reasonable thing and get out of the area. The crowd was actually moving the direction ...
... of nights in Paris, before going their separate ways. Air conditioning in the TGV train carriage is not working! Very hot. Arrived in Paris about 3.15pm. Onto a bus to get to the ship. Embark the Avalon Creativity in Paris. We settle into our room, have the mandatory safety briefing, Jean Loup's port talk and introduction. Of course we have heard all of Jean Loup 's jokes before! Dinner and an early night. The ship leaves Paris, and we head off on the Seine River towards ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Cadran Tour Eiffel Paris
My husband took me to Paris for my birthday and we stayed in this lovely hotel just 5 minutes away from the Eiffel tour - the hotel was situated in an almost residentail part of Paris which was quiet and safe. The hotel rooms were small but clean and well presented. The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. This hotel is in a very good location to visit all areas of this beautiful city. I had the most wonderful birthday I could think of..... Many thanks
Great Paris hotel!!!
I just got back from a London/Paris vacation and in Paris we stayed at the Hotel du Cadran. It is an inexpensive yet charming hotel within blocks of the Eiffel Tower and Ecole Militaire Metro station. Since many tour buses start their routes at the Eiffel Towere, it is a convenient location. The room was small but immaculate with a beautiful bathroom. A continental breakfast was included in the price and was served each morning in a wonderful basement room that is encased in brick with an arched entry way. The granola is the best!!! A fantastic way to start each day! The staff were friendly and service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this hotel. They aim to please and do it well!!!
Paris well represented
MOST EXCELLENT!!! The staff are the best! They saw to the smallest details of a perfect stay. The room was cozy, super clean and the corner rooms add an air of romance to the stay with the 2 windows.
Sonia and Emelie made the stay even more special with their individual touches and help.
The staff makes the difference
Decent hotel in a nice neighborhood. Small room but the bathroom was a fairly good size by European standards. Located about a 2 minute walk away from the nearest metro, but you pass many nice shops along the way! The staff was extraordinarly friendly and helpful and gave us advice on everything from where to shop to which bakery had the best cookies. Also, the guy in the shop next door will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about foie gras (if you ever wanted to know anything).
The Hotel du Cadran was perfectly located within walking distance of most major attractions. Around the corner was Rue Cler, a large market street. The cafe across the street served some of the best low-cost food in Paris. I would recommend this hotel to solo travelers, as it is in a very safe area. The staff was helpful and friendly. I will return there.
When coming to this hotel, you are warmly greeted by one of the 3 young owners. Any request was attended to right away. The hotel is ideally situated where you can share a cafe au lait, find all kinds of different foods and resturants in walking distance. I had the vacation of a lifetime in this city. I would go again tomorrow and stay at the same hotel with these gratious people. Every French person we spoke to was friendly and cordial.I was amazed by the beauty of all the building we visited in Paris and Versaille. To view Paris at night from the top of the Eiffel Tower is nothing but spactacular.
What a wonderful hotel! The staff were extremely friendly and amazingly helpful. Sonia, Carole and Emilie helped my husband and I make restaurant reservations, gave us many, many directions, answered our questions about French customs, and even helped me to improve upon my very small knowledge of the French language. The neighborhood around the hotel is delightful - it's beautiful and quiet (i.e. few tourists) yet full of great restaurants and shops. Rooms are small but nicely furnished and clean (the maid staff is awesome). Bathrooms are remodeled and very comfortable. Highly recommended!
We missed our plane and had no reservations. That's how we happened on to this charming hotel. They took us in on a Saturday nite. We only wished we had stayed w/ them the whole week. Can't wait to go back. The Rue Cler is on the corner and here you will find a charming two block market place w/ amazing bakeries, cafes, eateries, flowers, chocolates... Close to the subway. The Hotel was spottless, and rooms cozy and romantic. An extremely helpful and friendly staff. Beautiful lobby and breakfast area. An amazing neighborhood, close to all the sights and great for walking around, even late into the nite. Quite often, I log onto their website, just to have another look.
My Paris Home
The du Cadran is a warm, friendly place in a wonderful Paris neighborhood. Within days we knew the crepe man, the cafe waitress, the baker, the cheesemaker, and when we return, most of them remember us! The staff is pleasant and helpful and they're there year after year. I wouldn't consider another option now that I am so at home here.
Great little neighborhood
I have visited 3 times in the last 12 months.
Corner rooms are great for the Paris feeling. Also had a ground floor room with private patio, this was a great place to eat a dinner with food purchased locally (within the 2 block area)dessert, cheese, meat and wine. The subway is only 2 blocks. I travel on business and the hotel cost plus cab is still less than the big hotels. Down side is lack of pc port and high end phone system. But it is a great neighborhood.
