Ibis Tour Eiffel Cambronne
Travel Blogs from Paris
Paree ooh la la Took a cab, really a friend of the immigrant couple who manage/own the fleabag hotel we stayed at, to St. Pancras station and boarded the Eurostar at 5:40. Smooth fast ride, ate our yogurt and orange and bought coffee. Dozed off then watched the sun play on the green French farmland. And then we were here. Gare du Nord is huge and …
To be honest, the Eiffel Tower does look pretty spectacular at night, lit up like a Christmas tree, sprouting up out of the gardens beside the Seine.
Saturday morning, we go to meet some more friends for breakfast nearby our hotels. Omelettes, croissants, cappuccino with cream. From here, because it's so close, we walk back to the Eiffel …
... the Musee D'Orsay and - what an impressive place this is. Firstly the interior of the building is wonderful but also there are many famous paintings which are very well displayed. We had lunch in the restaurant which is beautiful and washed lunch down with champagne.
We returned to our apartment to retrieve our bags and jumped into a taxi which took us to our new hotel (in Montparnasse) where we meet up with the tour group tonight for dinner and a ...
... Provence. This mountain rises straight out of the Provence landscape. It is stark and unmissable from the surrounding plains.
Starting from the town of Malaucene meant we had a short warm up before launching into the 20k climb. The initial kilometres of the climb amble gently through the grapevines, before the shady forest envelopes the road. However, it’s not long before we were on the bare and exposed upper moonscape parts of the climb, that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Tour Eiffel Cambronne Paris
Affordable Paris Hotel
I stayed at the Ibis Cambronne Paris for 5 nights in early May 2005. My main objectives when I was searching for a place to stay in Paris was to find a decent price and a clean room...both of which I got at this property. The location is great. We practically walked all over Paris from our hotel. VERY close to the Eiffel Tower. The room, although extremely small, was spotless and the bathroom was glistening. I did find the beds very uncomfortable however that is expected when you are 6'2 and sleeping in a single bed....I think it was probably the smallest bed I have EVER slept in. I would stay at this property again because for the price you cannot beat it. Hotels in Europe are expensive but I find you can always count on Ibis hotels for a clean room and a good price.
Don't Stay at This Hotel During Summer! No AC nor Fan & hotel staff not helpful!
My sis and I just recently stayed at this hotel for a night just before we're leaving to go back home. It's summer season and it was freaking hot that day. We checked in, given a very small double room on the 1st floowr with super small bathroom, but it was clean. Well, we don't really have much issue with the room size as long as it's clean. It was a hot evening that I called the front desk asking if there's any AC that I could turn on and the answer was NO and when I asked if they had a fan, they did not understand the meaning of "fan" until I had to explain that it's something like a propeller which generates wind.. sounded very stupid, but it was very frustrating trying explain to the front desk people coz nobody understood the meaning of 'fan' and I guess up to now they still don't. Then I asked for the window key so that I could open the window wider for the wind to come in and again the answer is flat NO due to security issue. The window was locked with max 2 inch width for the wind to come in and we felt so suffocated. The front desk guy was not empathy or helpful or apologetic at all eventhough it was obvious that I sounded very frustrated because of the hot room. The only thing he could tell me was to ask me to go down to front desk and tell him what was my problem. I was so angry and stressed to him that I've told him all my problem and all he could tell me was NO to all my requests! I just slammed down the phone afterwards... It's the end of my 2 week trip and I didn't think any miracle would happen if I were to argue further. We were very exhausted already and needed to rest. Well, luckily at the later part, it's a little bit windy, so we could sleep. But, just imagine... what if it's a hot and no wind evening and you don't have the AC facility, fan and not allowed to open window wider, I guess you could've died of suffocation!
So, for those of you who are gonna stay there during summer, better think multiple times.... The front desks staff are not friendly as the hotel is mostly full due to the special rates that they're offering. So, count yourself lucky if everything goes well there.
Nice Hotel....good value for discovering Paris
Nice hotel excellently positioned to take advantage of the close proximity of the Metro.Hotel very relaxing ( laid back) ,staff were friendly and helpful if not a little understaffed at the main desk.
Five days cost us 405 euro over a long weekend.Very good value.Minor problem with room keys one night but no real inconvenience.Checking in /out may be a little slow but no real problem.Rooms are very small and clean with the beds very comfortable.
Didn't eat in the restauant as menu looked very complicated but not too pricey.Breakfast was 6.50 euro and wasnt very appetising ( normal european fare......if you want something hot you will be dissapointed) but will give you sufficent energy to get around Paris for a while.
The bar is standard ,quaint bar with a beer and a glass of house wine cost 5.50 euro very reasonable.Local bar open to 2am on Sunday Nite.Lots of restaurants closed by.
If you want to watch TV had only one English Cahannel BBC News Choice? which was good in that it encouraged us to get out earlier and view the sights of Paris.
Excellent location to explore Paris close proximity to Metro to Eiffel (10 min)Tower,Versaille(1hr must see) or Notre Dam (20 min very cosmopilitan and reasonable area to dine....with virtualy every food taste guaranteed)
Every Sunday an excellent food (and clothing etc) market is close by ( one stop towards Eiffel ) with bargains to be found.
Local Shop opens 24 Hours (1 min walk) with wine,fruit and food at very reasonable rates.
Stayed here 4 or 5 times - Staff is tourist friendly, multilingual
Views of Eiffel Tower great on upper floors!
This is great value for money. In the same neighborhood as all the other pricey hotels but 1/2 the price! Rooms are very nice, with the basics, breakfast buffet for a nominal price is fantastic too. On Sundays they have a small open air market up the street from the hotel with all sorts of good values. Charming area, great shopping near Rue du Commerce and safe too. Steps to the Cambronne Metro line.
This hotel was okay. The bathroom was the size of an airplane bathroom with a shower. Other than the size of the bathroom, the rooms were clean and were of a decent size. At any of the Ibis, plan on sleeping close to a travel partner. Even if you ask for two beds, they will be two twin beds pushed together.
This hotel should have a three star rating
We stayed in Ibis Cambronne tour Eiffel-hotel 5 nights in March 2004.
The price/quality ratio of this hotel was very good: The rooms were quite small, but comfortable and clean. The hotel is very large and international. The staff can speak English and the service is good. The breakfast was not included in the room rate (which was very reasonable 75-89 euros per night), but cost's only 6 euros per person. The location of this hotel is good: the Eiffel tower is near and metro and train stations are close by. We would recommend this hotel to our friends. If you don't want to spend all your money to the hotel this hotel should be very high on your list.
We were booked into this hotel on a Trafalgar Tour. I must say we were very impressed with th quality of this hotel, with regard to the tariff. Would certainly stay there again.
Remains good value budget hotel
I stayed here again on Friday 28 Nov 2003. My room was not ready when I arrived at 12.00 but was when I returned - after an appointment - at 17.00. Room was compact and comfortable. Next morning I extended check out to 14.00 and thought my room keycard had been extended. But when I returned at 13.00 key did not work. I recognised none of reception staff from my visit in May. I felt present team did not always concentrate on what they were doing. That said, the room was good and the price of EUR 75 without breakfast was good value for the location by Cambronne metro station (line 6)
Staff very helpful
a group of us stayed here 5th september for a weekend. The hotel is really well situated it is very close to a metro line however we heard no noise at all.The staff are fantastic. They have a sense of humour and all of them seemed to speak english. They are very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. The restaurant is attached to the hotel and is open 24 hours a day serving food and snacks which is great coming in after 12pm after a long evening. They also have menus in english. The rooms are ok but without kettle or hairdryer, however this didn't cause us much of a problem. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends and am intending to go back again.
Good value, handily situated hotel
This is one of a huge number of budget-price (this one is EUR 89 per night + breakfast) in the IBIS chain, one of several chains in the Accor Group. Well located near Cambronne Metro station (line 6). I have been staying here on visits during the past 10 years. During 14-17 May 2003 I found the rooms on 7th floor (non-smoking) had been revamped and bathroooms modernised. TVs were all being replaced as I was checking out. Rooms are compact and bathrooms more so. But value for money is very good in my opinion
