What an amazing sleep in the Novotel! I was not going anywhere - had intended to run but instead stayed in until 7.30 and showered and went to inhale the buffet breakfast. We have been eating very well on this trip. Once we had more than enough to eat we went to meet Rocky at the tower as it opens at 9am. We passed lots of flash bikes and riders …
It was snowing when we came into land in Paris. I left Sunday night and arrived Monday morning.
Was happy to see snow fall. I'd only seen snow fall once for about 5 seconds where my grandmother used to stay in NZ. It never snows in Auckland. I'd seen snow before but not out of the sky. I even had one in the shape of a …
Today mum and I decided we needed a relaxing break so we went to Guerlain Spa for a girls day. On our tour we have some free time to do what ever we want for 4 days and this is what we really wanted to do. We got dressed and ready by 8:00am so we could be there by 8:30am. We have a 8 hour and 15min treatment, it is called the Sublime Deluxe. Today …
Today we woke early to get down to the buffet breakfast before everyone else did (because normally all the croissants are taken!). Lucky only the early crowd was there so we could stuff our selfs with yummy patisseries. Once we had eaten we met up with our tour group in the lobby. We all said a quick hello until we were whisked away by our own …
My mum and I woke early this morning to go sightseeing all around Paris with our tour group. First today we went to the Eiffel Tower. The views from up there were amazing!

Good Times in Paris
I stayed at this hotel from July 1, 2004-July 4, 2004. I had a very positive experience. The staff was helpful and very knowledgeable.
The first room that I had was supposed to be non-smoking but when I got there it reeked of smoke. So, I went back down to the front desk and complained. They switched me to a different room right away (as it turns out the second room was much bigger than the first).
If we ever needed anything we asked and we got it. I didn't have any problems and I would definitely recommend this hotel. For us, the location was perfect. The Eiffel Tower was easily visible from the hotel and there are two Metro stops less than 10 minutes away.
This hotel was very nice. It was one of the top two that I stayed in during my trip to Europe. It is very conveniently located near two metro stops and close to the Eiffel Tower. The rooms were a great size and had a large bathroom. The rooms were clean and housekeeping was very helpful. The concierge desk is also very useful.
Well, I'm surprised at some of the negative comments regarding the hotel. My fiancee and I spent a very nice week at the hotel and we didnt even get one of the larger rooms. Nevertheless, the room faced the Seine and was very clean and well designed. You can definitely tell that it was a former Nikko hotel, not only by the modern interior designs, but also by the hordes of Japanese tourists meeting each morning to hop on another tour. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I worked out in the fitness center which was oddly located in the same area room as the swimming pool - sure was humid, but manageable.
Bad Location, Bad Hotel
I booked this thru Priceline. The rate was low for Paris, but the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Metro, and is out of the way. The Eiffel Tower is a 15 minute walk.
My room did not have A/C, was small, smelled and was last decorated 10 years ago. Also, the windows don't open.
I would never stay here again. In fact, I left a day early because it was so bad (even though I had prepaid thru Priceline).
More for the business people
Clean/very close to the tower and subways. Nice lobby. Our room had a partial view of the tower. Big market and small mall nearby.
Located in 1970's complex of other buildings. One had boards in all the windows and appeared to be closed down. An eyesore.
Tubs are small and the shower doors only go half-way across the tub.
Heard they are common, I hated them since the entire bathroom floor got wet. No real coffee included just a pack of decaf instant. Will not provide you with non-decaf. Extremely hard time getting an iron for my clothes. Tour gude had to complain. Not a family oriented hotel.
Not so nice.........
The lobby area definitely rates a 4, but the room we stayed in barely registered a 3. A smelly corridor, worn-out furniture and fixtures, clanking plumbing, and no coffee/tea making equipment contributed to a less-than-satisfactory experience. The hotel appeared fairly empty so either the room was typical or they were saving their better rooms for higher paying customers. We paid $120/night via Priceline and concluded that it was no bargain and that we would not come back ever again.
Very pleased with my stay
I was the same as the other reviewer - I booked through Priceline and then was nervous I couldn't find a write-up anywhere. I was overall quite pleased with my stay - there was no construction going on, everything was clean and modern, and the service was very polite and prompt. The metro and E. Tower is close by. I didn't have any problems with pickpockets, etc. I would recommend the hotel if you dont mind being a little bit off the beaten path, but want to have easy access to everything. P.S. I thought I got a great rate through Priceline.
Just Fine and Better than Many!
We were worried when we booked our pkg at the Novotel Tour Eiffel and then we couldn't find it in any guidebooks. But it was a perfectly fine place to stay and the concierges/front desk people incredibly helpful and eager to please. Formerly a Hotel Nikko there are still bizarre Japanese touches everywhere making you wonder if you are in Paris or Tokyo. I understand that renovations were commencing shortly after we left so maybe that's all gone. This is a large chain but I think that helps it stay consistent. The neighborhood around back of the hotel is the Real (not touristy) Paris and we met so many cool people in the bars, restaurants and grocery store there.
iHotel is near Eiffel Tower. There 5 minutes walk to 2 RER stations and 1 Metro stop. If you plan to take RER or Metro, you will be able to see Eiffel Tower every day. If you are fit, you can walk everywhere. When you are too tired, you have the option to take RER C line. RER C goes along Seine River where all the major attraction are. That makes it very convinience. You will also have the option to take the boat ride because the hotel is by the river. The smaller Statue of Liberty is right by the hotel. There is a large supermarket near by and a shopping center a block away. The tub is very deep in the bathroom. Room is small but nice. There is stairs on the front entry way, but it did not bother me because there is esculator stairs.The two stations RER and metro are the stations for Eiffel Tower attration, there are many tourists exiting on the station. You need to be very careful with your purses or wallets because there are thiefs in those two stations. We witness a lady's wallet got stolen. This hotel is one of the fews hotel that is part of the vacation packages deals at Priceline. You will be able to get very reasonable rate. Also there are many website that will help you obtain reasonable rate. I enjoy the stay there and hope you will too.
The Hotel is currently under rennovations. To get into the hotel there are "killer stairs," not fun after a day of walking!! Staff was pleasant and helpful. Room for Europe was large with a separate sitting area, bath with tub, hand held shower that sucked and a bidet. Corner rooms are larger, ask for one of them. None have a view of the Eiffel Tower, other buildings are in the way, great views of the Siene if you are on that side of the hotel. Elevators are quick and fast. Full buffet breakfast expensive, 20e, if not included in the rate, go to the Seine Bar for continental breakfast 6e. Location is ok, but a walk to get everywhere!! Tube is about 6 long blocks away. Lots of groups at the hotel, lots of Asians and families as well.
