... the gearbox into first and dumped the clutch. He immediately stomped on the brakes and said, "We're here." Battery Boy looked out the side window and observed they were now parked outside 9 rue Pontoise at Le Petit Pontoise, a quaint little restaurant renowned for its traditional French cuisine.

Today being Father's Day, most of the cafe terraces on rue Cler were filled by the time we arrived. We walked to the jewelry store, owned by a very friendly, young Tibetan woman who speaks perfect English. She helped Dee find two rings while they chatted for several minutes. From there, we ...
Eventually after checking out many cafes, we settled on "Le Florence" and joined the locals lingering there outside on such a beautiful day. I managed to order and as to be expected the food was sensational. We sat and watched the craziness, and kept finding amazing architecture to ooh and aah over.

You know there used to be a time in my life where I would bike to Herzstein cause I hate walking. Now, spending my semester abroad in Europe I’m walking soooo much. Every weekend I’ve been walking like crazy but even more in Paris. Whether it is raining or not it doesn’t matter. In Seville I just put my rain coat on and carried on. In Provins today it rained and it was also supper windy but that ...

It was bigger than mum thought it would be. We got all of the way to the front of the people to see it. The painting was amazing, you can see lots and lots of details on it. We wandered some more and then we all went home tired and sore from all of our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Paris Tour Eiffel Grenelle
Very nice, convenient hotel
My husband and I stayed here for a 3-night long weekend in February 2005. We booked the hotel through laterooms.com and paid €355 for the 3 nights, bed and breakfast.
We chose the area (15eme arrondissement) following a recommendation from a colleague who lives in Paris - the 15eme is a very 'French' part of Paris, and very central for doing all the touristy things (the Eiffel Tower / Champs Elysees and Louvre are all within walking distance of the hotel, and there is a metro stop - Dupleix - right opposite the hotel for when you're feeling lazier). There were a good few reasonably priced restaurants nearby (including an excellent Chinese called 'Lido' about 2 minutes away up a back street). There was a Sunday morning market just outside the hotel, which was great to stroll around on our last morning and very atmospheric!
Our room was very nice - small (but that's the norm in Paris) but with a lovely, comfortable bed with a feather duvet, powerful shower and very clean. We requested a view of the Eiffel Tower, which was really pretty - for the first 10 minutes of every hour it lights up and flashes like a huge Christmas decoration!
Breakfast was great and very extensive - gorgeous fresh croissants, fruit, bacon and eggs, cereal, pastries and cakes, cheeses, ham...... a fantastic start to the day. The restaurant staff, and reception staff, were very friendly and chatty.
Overall, we were very impressed with this hotel, and would definitely recommend it and return there ourselves.
A great location just opposite the metro and a scenic journey across the Seine to Trocadero only took minutes.
Rooms were clean, well equipped and there was a big duvet on the bed ! Very comfortable.
There is a bar that has a daily happy hour.
Would definitely stay here again
Comfortable hotel right by the metro
We stayed here 2 nights, 21st and 22nd December 2004 as part of a week of 50th birthday celebrations.
The break was booked through Airmiles and all ran very smoothly. Our Eurostar train back to the UK was not due to depart until late afternoon on 23rd and the hotel were happy for us to collect our baggage later at the hotel even though we had to check out a.m. It meant we could make the most of the 3rd day.
As mentioned in previous comments, the hotel is opposite a metro station (Dupleix) which was very convenient.
When we arrived I thought it might be noisy as we had a road facing room and the metro was overground and level with the room. I shouldn't have worrried. The room was very very quiet and in fact a market appeared below the metro on the 2nd day and we didn't even hear it being set up early in the morning and I am a very light sleeper!! The room was very clean, beds comfortable and plenty of hot water for a warm bath when we arrived on a bitterly cold day.
Breakfast was buffet style, a good selection with some hot options and plentiful.
I found the staff extremely helpful and friendly.
We had a view of the top part of the Eiffel Tower from our window on floor 2 and for 10 mins on the hour it became a dazzling display of twinkling Christmas lights.
Would certainly be happy to stay there again.
Right by Eiffel Tower
We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our tour in November 2004. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Eiffel Tower, one hour walk to the Louvre. There's a tube station entrance a few minutes walk from the hotel. Taking the tube to other part of city was fairly easy. The set up of our room is very unusual, the toilet is separated from the bath tub and sink, which is very inconvenient. The bath tub has a very small glass door which covers only 40% of the tub, water is splashed all over the floor. The Concierge was very rude. They got impatience when we were making currency exchange and asking about the internet access. Generally speaking, hotels in France are less expensive than most places in Europe, you can find better and cheaper hotels.
Just returned from a 3-night stay at the 4* Mercure Paris Tour Eiffel, and I could not have been more pleased. Exhausted after an overnight flight, my room - with a very comfortable bed - was available shortly after arrival. The room was spacious by what am told are Paris standards, and the bathroom was not only larger than I could have ever imagined, but also spotless beyond belief. A deal on lastminute included a buffet breakfast, which was relatively simple, but more than adequate. The front desk staff and dining room manager were all bilingual, and extremely service oriented. An added benefit was a wonderful Sunday street market a stone's throw from the hotel. Mercure Paris Tour Eiffel offers standard French amenities; however, do not expect wash cloths (thankfully, I brought my own) or access to an iron. Located within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower; metro just steps away from hotel.
Very nice spacious hotel
This was a lovely hotel approx 5 mins walk from the Eiffel Tower. There is a metro station right outside (Dupleix Ligne 6), and it is only one stop away from the RER which you can use to get to Disneyland, etc. The rooms are very large, we had a deluxe room which was more than adequate.
Room service is very reasonable, although the menu is quite limited, we normally got our food within 30 mins of ordering. When we visited, there were 3 english speaking TV channels (CNN, CNBC, and BBC World) but you get 4 pay channels too.
Staff are very friendly, and mostly English speaking and seemed more than happy to give directions to shopping centres, monuments, etc. It is not the most central hotel but I would definitely recommend it.
Impromptu Birthday Tea
This was a great weekend which went smoothly from beginning to end. The reason for our visit to Paris was to celebrate my father's 90th Birthday on the 18th July 2004. His dream was to go up the Eiffel Tower and have a trip on the River Seine. This we did on his actual birthday together with my mother who is 92. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience but now want to go back again to go up the Tower at night!!! This hotel I cannot rate highly enough as they were so attentive in all respects, room and service were excellent. I actually took a Birthday Cake with me and decided to have a cup of tea with the cake, so asked if I could borrow a knife to cut it. They took the cake away and before we knew it they had laid up a table with all the trimmings for the five of us in their patio area. This truly was the icing on the cake for my father and the whole Paris Experience is one which we will never forget. Thank you to all at the Hotel.
The Paris Metro at your hotel door
When booking a hotel room in Paris the proximity of a metro station is of utmost importance. But having it literally across your door makes a real difference. When you add to it an extremely helpful and courteous staff, and a spotless, quiet, confortable room, you feel happy for making the right decision. My wife, my 17 y/o daughter and myself spent six days at the Mercure Paris Tour Eiffel and in great part because of that we enjoyed a lovely vacation. Special thanks for the complimentary bottle of champagne and snacks we were treated with as an apology for not having our room ready when we arrived at the hotel (10:00 am!!!). Eiffel Tower is just a 10 minutes walk away through a lovely neighborhood.
Loved the view of the Eifel Tower
I booked a long weekend in this hotel for me and the misses for a special occasion. I booked thru ratestogo for 150 euros per night for a double room. Included was a half bottle of champagne, breakfast and a boat trip on the Seine. The Hotel was very nice. The room was clean and a sufficient size. The reception was extremely friendly and there was a view of the Eifel tower from our window. What more do you want. The Metro (Tube Station) is next door to the hotel. I recommend that you park your car in the hotel car park for 17 euros per night as the Parisians are crazy drivers. Use the metro to go everywhere - its 8 euros per person for a day ticket for all public transport - that covers all of central Paris. There is a street market at the front of the hotel on Sunday morning. Its a short 5-10 minute walk to the river seine and the eifel tower. Will
Beautiful Modern Hotel
My wife and I stayed here in September 2000 as part of a United Vacations tour package. The hotel is a contemporary styled hotel reasonably near the Eiffel Tower (hence its name). Don't go here if you are looking for lots of old Paris atmosphere as it serves a lot of businessmen. However, it is right across the street from a Metro station so you can get around the city very easy. The neighborhood is generally quiet but very typical of a French residential area. And twice a week there is a very large outdoor market held under the Metro tracks were it is very easy to get into the Parisian frame of mind.
The breakfast (provided as part of our tour package) was excellent and more than the typical continental breakfast that most hotels offer.
There is no other restaurant in the hotel (but there is a bar), but there are plenty of restaurants and brassieres in the area.
The room we had was large, clean and in good shape. In addition, it had a view of the Eiffel Tower out of the window. This was a wonderful way to wake up and also to relax in the evening when the tower was all lit up.
The staff was very helpful, spoke English well, and took care of our every need. I would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Paris.
