Close to everything. A little too close to the subway as you can consistently hear train announcements. Bathroom and room facilities are ok. No ironing board or iron which was only really noticeable because we were on a Conference.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grenelle Paris
Lovely little hotel
My daughter and I had a great 4 nights in Paris at the Hotel Grenelle, mid-August. We had a superior room, nice and quiet, clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast buffet was very good,how can you go wrong with fresh croissants each morning ?? The staff was helpful and polite. Location is perfect; 2 minutes walk to the Metro, numerous great restaurants within blocks, a lovely Sunday market just down the street, and a "peek-a-boo" view of the Eiffel Tower from our room, which was about 15 minutes walk away. Highly recommended, and we'd go back anytime.
Wonderful little hotel
This is a superb, friendly, hotel. I have stayed 4 times and found no reason to look elsewhere. Ideal location for site seeing. Extremely helpful and friendly staff.The patron is kind and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for him.
A local restaurant - Le Pierot- is excellent.
The hotel is clean and tidy. Breakfast is 'continental' but adequate. just a nice place to return to after a busyday in Paris.
Not a very nice experience. The first indication was when we got to the front door and there was a sign stating guests were not allowed to bring food or drink from outside of the hotel. It made you feel as if it was a hostel or worse a flop house. The hallways had timers on the lights so when walking down the steps you had to feel your way along the walls to find the light switches on each floor. The room was basic and while it looked reasonably clean it didn't feel clean. The bathroom had old mismatched towels that were fraying on the ends and rolls of toilet paper sat on the back of the toliet. If you had a room on the main street the traffic was so incredibly loud you couldnt sleep more than an hour at a time. As mentioned in another review, the hotel did spoil the trip a bit. Lesson learned, if you go on a budget then really do your research or spend a little extra to have a nicer room. Paris is an incredible place and even though you do not spend alot of time in your room there is a feeling a dread at the end of the day knowing that you have to return to a less than par hotel. The hotel definately has potential, its just in need of some basic fix ups.
Location, Location, Location!
I first found Hotel Grenelle through a brochure. I am very glad I did. The Hotel is a good 2 star, family run and very friendly. The location is ideal, a short walk through the Champ De Mars to the Eiffel Tower and there are excellent Metro links to anywhere you would like to go.
The area is not too 'touristy'. You feel that you are in the real Paris.
The best thing I can say about this establishment is that we have been back on several occasions and we would not stay anywhere better at this price!
A short break visit with 3 girlfriends
We stayed at the Hotel Grenelle - about 15 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. The hotel was basic but very comfortable and served an adequate breakfast. There are a lot of acceptable restaurants nearby with a good selection of French, Chinese, and various other good quality food. The tourist buses ran from the Eiffel Tower and the Metro was outside the hotel so getting about was very easy. We saw a lot of Paris from the "topless" bus tour and also the Bateau - there was a Movenpick store close to the hotel which sold acceptable ready made sandwiches suitable to take for lunch and numerous fruit and bakery stores near the hotel. I would recommend this as a good place to stay for a cheap bargain break and it was enjoyed by all of us. We travelled by Eurostar.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Grenelle for a weekend getaway. The location of the hotel was great and everything was accessable by foot and Metro. Unfortunately I found my room in a poor condition with mould in the wardrobe, stained carpet, patched up bathroom with leaking toilet. The room was clean and the view great (Eiffel Tower as requested) these are the good points. I think we paid just for the view. The thing is this hotel has been described as a 2/3 star, I think it barely buffs upto 2. This hotel was not cheap, i think I'll stick with a chain next time and pay a bit extra. Paris was great the hotel spoilt it a bit.
Great little hotel.
Stayed at the Grenelle hotel over New Year, an excellent value for money hotel, friendly English speaking staff, great location and right opposite the Metro which takes you straight past the Trocadera and to the Champs Elysee. An excellent little hotel, small but friendly.
Breakfast is an excellent continental range, not very nice version of Cornflakes though :o) Would definately go back again. I would go back to Paris tomorrow and will stay there again if I do. Very tidy and well decorated.
This hotel is perfect for a weekend break. Don't expect luxury (but who would at the low prices). Ideal for couples wanting a handy base to explore from . Nearest metro only 50m away giving you three different lines across Paris and surroundings. Eiffel only two streets away.
Beautiful at night for lovely stroll. Hotel was quite small but not pokey. Breakfast OK (bread, croissants etc). Staff helpful, check in etc very quick. I would chose to go there again. For weekend on budget you couldn't expect more. Thank You

Small, poky, but clean and efficient. Good as a base, but don't try swinging any cats.Paris was well worth the effort.
The view by the way was the Eiffel Tower; wonderful.
Give it a try.
I have stayed at this friendly family run Hotel with my family and on my own. We love Paris and this is the only place we would stay. It is very good value for money.
The location is ideal, you are seconds away from a Metro station which will get you to most of the sites you would like to see within minutes. The Hotel is situated in a vibrant and upcoming area of this marvelous city. The Hotel is a relativley short walking distance through the Champ de Mars to the Eiffell Tower. There is a choice of rooms many are air conditioned which can be an advantage during the summer minths.

... to what Chris told us would be the best hot chocolate in the world. While I was pretty good it was super super rich and I don't know if I'd say it's the best I've ever had but it was cool how they brought it out in a jug and give you some whipped cream to put in it your self. We then walked up to the arc de triomphe. To get to it you have to cross under ground as it is in the middle of an 8 lane roundabout. Side note: traffic ...

Our apartment is in a modern building this time which is giving us a comfortable change from uneven floors, drafty windows, odd floor plans, cramped bathrooms, and miniscule kitchens-even though we trade in some of that old charm for modern conveniences. Our balcony looks out on what seems to be the ...

M thoroughly enjoyed Versailles, even though had been there before and despite the masses of people this time. Still haven't been there when all the fountains are on - from a friend I believe it is stunning. In the official gardens are dahlias and what seem to be alpine flowers - very pretty.
The little finch with its nesting box was amazing. Hardy little thing, ...
... around the Cathedral. It is beautiful, albeit much smaller than some of its Italian brethren. To climb to the top, you have to go in a different line that is outside the church on a side, and so go and check that out. Line very long now, but I notice that in July and August, open on Friday and Saturday until 10:30, so decide that I will be able to make my way back tonight.
Decide at this point that I have not ...
... Or it was someone stupid.y trying to light a cigarette, like they said. After spending almost all day in the Louvre, we rode the double decker bus again to the Arc de Triomphe to walk back to the hotel down the Camps-Elysses street. We went window shopping at many designer stores like Cartier. On the way back to the hotel we walked through the gardens at the Louvre. We walked across Pont des Arts bridge on the way to dinner. ...
