Hotel du Cadran Tour Eiffel
Travel Blogs from Paris
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 …
... loved em. Really cool to see them in another country. Hearing the audience scream the lyrics in broken English was awesome and endearing.
Caught up with the guys after the show, had a couple drinks, and exchanged travel stories. Had tons of fun. Stumbled around town for a bit (this part is all a blur full of missing scenes) and found my way back ...
... know, I go there a lot) for some (you know it) mint tea. We were absolutely pooped though, and didn’t last long until we headed home and collapsed into bed.
I was quite proud of myself today, for being able to impart the knowledge I have gained in the past 6 days to Joanna – the directions, the history, the ‘who painted there’, the ‘who lived there’, the ‘who built that’ of this iconic city. Also, I am a Metro master now. That is ...
Today tears were shed…many tears…a mixture of Australian and German tears. Tears from different people from different cultures but they all came from the same feelings. To outsiders, the emotions that were displayed this morning as we left Germany may have seemed excessive after just five days…but emotions can sometimes creep up on you. You may think that you will be prepared for what's to come, but when the time arrives your response may ...
... and beverages we relaxed in the sun under the Eiffel Tower for a few hours listening to music and just soaking up the atmosphere and spectacle. Sunday morning we made our way to The Louvre museum. The place is massive. The largest museum in the world. It also houses the Monarch Lisa which was the most popular piece of art in the museum, but I wouldn't say the most impressive. Don't get me wrong, it was quite amazing to see such a popular piece of history, but some of the other ...

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.
