Service impeccable. Personnel très accomodant. Seul petit hic, pas de rideau de douche...

Historical Traveler Reviews France Eiffel Hotel Paris
Hotel is undergoing renovation. It's in a residential area but not everyone wants to stay on Champs Elysees. Our bathroom in room #37 was very small and some people might have problem using the toilet or the shower stall (grin). Using the wash basin should not be a problem, though. Room was clean.
Was disappointed in the cleanliness of the room (dirty chairs, empty beer bottle, dirty tub and shower curtain) and the disinterest of the staff. A good location to the Eiffel Tower, but would not recommend it or stay there again.
Set the record straight
Don't normally write reviews, but I felt I had to after reading some of rubbish written about this place. First of all it's very cheap (£120.00 2 nights inc eurostar) so it doesn't have a big flash lobby, or room service, or pay movies or huge rooms. What it does have is charm, very helpful staff (who speak excellent english), fine rooms which are very clean, good bathrooms, decent beds and even a plasma screen (if that floats your boat.) OK so its not in the heart of tourist Paris (not a bad thing in my book) but it's a 30 second walk to the metro and a 4 minute walk to the eiffel tower. That's not to say that the area its in is not without its charms, we had a fantastic meal out close to the hotel, and the outdoor food market (sunday mornings) is something else. It's not the best hotel I've stayed at by a long shot but in terms of value for money in Europe its the tops.
Did the job
Stayed at the France Eiffel Hotel in November for two nights. Having read all but the last review was alittle unsure of what to expect- however I found I got what I paid for, and alittle more.
The hotel is not in the centre of "tourist" Paris but the metro allows easy access to the city. We had a friendly and helpful welcome to the hotel and slept very well both nights. Yes the rooms are basic but were clean and allowed us to refresh ourselves after a hard day's sight seeing. There were some delightful restaurants in the area and the Sunday market under the metro line was wonderful to meander through.
Considering our break cost just £130 including flight and two nights at hotel (expedia) I very much feel we got quite a good deal. Have stayed in a few Parisian hotels and although this was not the finest I wouldn't complain at having to return.
Top Hotel, Top Location!!!!
We found the Hotel to be just as expected and more. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, great shower, mini bar/fridge, tv, fresh towels daily, beds made daily. The view looked out onto pretty parisian residential flats with colourful flowers on balconies. After a hard days trek around paris, the area had a certain ambience of 'care free' life. We felt very safe in this area. It was a 5 min walk from the Eiffel Tower, 2 mins from the Seine, 1 min from a metro/tube stop. 1 min from a supermarket. what more could we ask for? We would definitely come here again. Really can not understand other reviews given. Its not the Savoy, but it is a very well kept, smart, clean, Parisian Hotel with friendly and professional staff. +++++
Crap Location, Crap hotel
Reception staff were really helpful and most friendly. The Location was not ideal, few shops, bars and restaurants. The metro location mean't that we always had to change at Charles de Gaulle Etoile. On arrival my husband an i were given a bed that was just slightly bigger than a single bed and the matress was made of a thin layer of foam!
We asked to be transferred to a room with a bigger bed. This was granted. Both my husband and I got bitten on the ankles, we think that the carpet was alive!
Would not recommend.
The hotel was quite small on arrival, and although the reception staff were very nice and helpful, the dirty bed that awaited us along with dangerous electrical wires hanging from the wall gave me a bad impression right away.
The curtains were hanging off the rails, the bedroom window was broken and the toilet in the bathroom was in a very poor location, squashed between the shower shield and a wall, making it almost impossible to use. The room was very dated and dirty! The tv also had no english channels too!
The lady who served breakfast was very rude, and complained that my wife took some extra jam! she did not like children either!
I am sorry, this hotel was supposed to be 3 stars!
not up to scratch of an Irish 3 star hotel!
Sorry! I cant recommend this hotel!
Paris is also over rated, the food is average and waiters are rude. If you do go, buy water and food from supermarkets, you will save a fortune!
My wife and I stayed for four nights. The people at the reception were all very friendly (not all french people are friendly towards Americans). Its not a new up to date building but the room was clean.
We stayed in late Feb-March, I dont know if summer time would be ok if it doesnt have air conditioner, we had a double heater. We stayed in a triple room it had plenty of space the bathroom was not cramped at all; the only thing cramped is the small elevator. The Taxi ride from the Airport was 37 Euro. The best thing is that it is a short walk to the Eiffel Tower and also to the Metro station/RER. From the Metro you can be anywhere you want in Paris within minutes; also at this location if you walk about five minutes underneath the Metro rail you run into a great outdoor market that has clothing, food, pastries, fruits, cheeses etc ..it runs for about 1/2 mile. For the Metro, I recomend buying 10 tickets for 1 Euro instead of one at 1.40 Euro. Take a good map with you I bought a small Michellin map at Barnes/Nobles for $ 4 they make the best maps; the maps have all the Metro locations on it which is a great help. Be prepared food in Paris is somewhat expensive for a good meal and dont exchange all your money at the airport you will get alot less, they have an exchange location close to the eiffel tower along the siene river.
We stayed in this hotel for 4 days and we hated it. The room was very small and conjusted and the bathroom was horrible with broken fittings.Would never ever go back there.
Small bed but a good price
The hotel itself is comfortable, the rooms are relatively small, especially the bathroom. There is no "grand lit" but two small ones. That was a bit dissapointing. The area and the hotel is safe and quiet, public transport is only a few minutes away. So all places of ineterest can be reached easily. The breakfast is pretty expensive (10 EUR in 2003), but the quality is good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Do not arrive before 14.00 because early check-in is not possible. Alex

Paris! 29 hours of travelling later with a stop off in Changi and we are finally in Paris!
Our bags had been checked all the way through and because we came from an EU transfer it was just a matter of picking them up and heading for the train.
Dreaming of a hot shower and some clean clothes we got to the station for what we …
... However, this only extends to a certain degree. Sometimes the mere height of something gets the best of me. If you haven't heard by now, the Eiffel Tower is pretty huge. Taking the elevator up was not the thing that trigged my fear, it was the little fence separating me and falling to my death below that did. We originally could not buy tickets to go to the top of the tower, so we bought tickets to the second tier... the tower is separated into 3 sections, the first level ...
... long enough to get around the corner and then down they fell. We boarded the bus and made our way to the Champs Élysées for a wander and lunch. Surprisingly, there wasn't a queue at LV as we have seen in the past. We then boarded our trusty transport (bus) again to Musee Rodin to see The Thinker and other Rodin sculptures and the gardens. The gardens are lovely and manicured, miniature cyclamen growing at the base of trees, hydrangeas with pale green flowers and fun sculptures ...
We woke up to a beautiful morning in the grand city of Paris...we keep pinching ourselves to make sure we are really here. The girls and I got ready earlier than the rest so we could sneak across the street where we discovered a bakery. When we saw the local police officers in there getting their croissant and coffee, we knew we had discovered the jackpot! I wish I could ...
Neither of us had been to Paris before and coupled with our lack of enthusiasm to return to the UK on an Easyjet flight into Gatwick we thought it would be far more enjoyable and symbolic to return via the Eurostar into St Pancras. Plus it gave us an opportunity to spend a weekend in Paris, joined by my parents who adored Paris.
After a quick reunion in our hotel we ...
