Historical Traveler Reviews Relais de Paris Eiffel Cambronne
Great location, overall very good
We stayed at this hotel at the end of May '05 and for one night in June and I can honestly say I was expecting less and was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and the location of the hotel. I would stay there again when I go back.
Good Clean Hotel, With a Great Location !!!!!
Me & my girlfriend have just got back from spending 5 nights at the "relais de Paris Cambronne" (7th April - 12th of April), and I have to say that overall we were very happy with the hotel.
Firstly the location for this hotel is great, its right near a road crossing where about 6 or 7 roads meet & cross (but dont let that put you off, as we couldn't hear any traffic from our room). In this "square" and roads near by you will find a number of different bars/restaurants that serve good food at good prices, I would recommend the "Royal Cambronne", we ate there on more than one occation's, and its only a stones throw from the hotel. Also in this little square you have a "paper store" which sell's french, english and american papers, and a lovely "Patisserie", I would like to recommend the chicken salad baguette, the bread is amazing.
Another great point about this square is that you have the "Cambronne" Metro stop in it aswell, which is great, i would recommend to anyone to use the metro to get around the city, it is cheap, quick and reliable.
The hotel is quite cheap in Paris terms to stay at, and it is very clean, you have all the basic's you need and the staff are very helpful. If I did have to give any negatives, I would say that the rooms are quite small, but you will find this a lot in Paris unless you spend good money to stay at a big name hotel, and I would also recommend you skip breakfast in the hotel and by your morning food from the local Patisserie, that will save you a few euro's, and the food is better too.
So all round I would say for the price you are paying and the location you get, you cant really go wrong with this lovely little Paris hotel.
A good location, not the Ritz, but enjoyable overall
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights (March 12/13/14, 2005). The staff here were excellent and helpful, the breakfast in the morning was quite sufficient for our needs (juices, coffee, pastries, cheeses, etc). True, the room was a tad small, but hey, all you do is sleep in it anyway...what more do you want. The Metro is very close. The Seine and the Eiffel Tower about a 15-20 minute walk. Lots of little cafe's and restaurants a few minutes walk from the hotel, ATM's are in the area. Overall, an enjoyable little stay in a quiet little area.
Good budget hotel
Good location (away from tour groups) - You can walk to the Eiffel tower. Metro (train) stop is a couple of blocks away. Laundromat is around the corner. Nice location if you wish to see Parisians who live in the area coming home from work, going to the local bars, post office, grocery, etc... Located in a more residential area. Not on any main strips with shops, restaurants or tourist attractions. The area is relatively quiet, but unfortunately some of the hotel guests were not (luck of the draw!). My husband and I quite liked it (for a budget hotel). Breakfast was basic but good (yogurt, some of our hotel guests were not (I guess you take your chances). We went in July and the room had air conditioning (it wasn't the greatest, but better than nothing - thank God!). The reception area is teeny tiny. The elevators are teeny tiny. The room was teeny tiny. The bathroom was teeny tiny - but this is NOT UNUSUAL for a Paris hotel. For the price, I would go back again. There is no night life in the immediate vacinity - a few local restaurants. But get on the Metro (subway train) and you are in the heart of it all. Paris has a TERRIFIC train system. You only sleep in your room anyway, get out and enjoy one of the world's greatest cities!
Very good value for money
Having booked this hotel within a package, we didn't expect much, but everything was of very good quality.
The rooms were fine, bathrooms always very clean and modern, whilst the breakfast was very nice.
Location-wise, the hotel was perfect, being only 5 minutes from the Eiffel Tower and 2 minutes from a métro station.
Overall, if you're looking for a nice hotel on a budget, choose here!
I know that budget hotels in Europe usually provide small rooms, but this was ridiculous! Absolutely no room to move - no place to put a suitcase (not even floor space)! We had to climb over the bed to get from the bathroom to the door. The showers are so small - about 30 inches square - and unless you're a size 2, it's impossible! Buffet breakfast was slightly more expensive than local restaurants, and offered less. The location was alright, but I'm sure I could have done better at another hotel.
Great cost/location combo!!!
My wife and I just returned from a 2-week trip to Europe where we spent time visiting London, Paris and Rome. While in Paris we stayed at the Relais De Paris Cambronne, and I have to say that we were very pleased with the accomodations. We paid approx. $105 a night (before taxes) for the stay, so obviously we weren't expecting a 5 star hotel. The front desk attendants and staff were all very pleasant to work with and the room was very decent and clean. It was close to the Metro, and there are lots of restaurants, shops and Patissarie's in the general area to visit.
What do you get @ the Cambronne - great location (not that far from Le Tour Eiffel), somewhat small but very decent room, 13" television, nice and clean bathroom.
What don't you get @ the Cambronne - 5 star accomodations, a great view from your room (we had no view).
Suggestion - set up your accomodations through Hotels. They gave us the best price on all of our hotels and we had no problems once we arrived there!
Walking to the Eiffel Tower
We stayed at the hotel in July 2004, we were pleased with their location. It's located in the middle of 3 metro stations and it's within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. Room although is very small, it's got everything you need inside like TV, phone, hair-dryer, and coffee maker. The shower is small even to my standard (I am wearing size 2) but overall it's very clean. Breakfast was decent. I would recommend it if you are travelling on a budget.
Great budget hotel in great location
This was my 4th stay at the Relais de Paris Cambronne. The previous 3 visits were under the old Hotel de la Paix name, and the changes made are brilliant. Although the rooms are small, they are spotlessly clean including the bathrooms. The staff are efficient. The breakfasts are quite adequate, although I do miss Le Tahar restaurant with its huge leather banquettes, where breakfast was served in the past.
I always stay here because of the great location, within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and the Seine, and La Motte Piquet Grenelle station practically outside the door, with choice of 3 metro lines. All of Paris is within easy reach. For the money, this hotel is perfect for a budget stay in Paris. I hope to return in the not too distant future.
A really Tiny Shower!
We stayed at this hotel for five days and overall it was OK. The breakfast is great and the location is wonderful in relation to the metro, three stops within a block. Even though the train passes in front of the hotel, the sound insulation works perfectly and we were not disturbed.
The size of the room was small even for Paris but the shower was miniscule. Neither one of us could turn around in it without getting the curtain stuck to us. We are average sized people (I wear a size 8 dress) so I would hate to think of anyone really large trying to use the shower.
Lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood. Swiss Village nearby with great antique stores.

... Le Soufflé restaurant in Paris. The restaurant’s soufflés were quite good, but the ones that we made under Alison’s expert gaze were spectacular (especially the lemon soufflé when served with raspberry sorbet). Slightly gooey in the centre and (almost) as light as air……can’t wait to try them out on friends at home.

... accordions and the like cut the silence. All of the routes we searched beforehand involved multiple changes to get around the closed section of RER C between Ile de la Cite and Invalides so we took it as a chance to get off at Chatelet and walk through Paris, past the Louvre and down the Seine. All things we had seen before but much more enjoyable than seeing more of the inside of a metro station. It was a nice stroll. How could it ever not be in Paris. We ...
A hearty buffet breakfast then down to the Metro station only to find it and the next 3 stations were closed for track maintenance, with buses replacing the trains. Redirected to the bus stop but no buses there so decided to walk about 1km up to the RER station to catch train to Versaille, arriving there about 10am.
Big queues and unfortunately this was one of the few museums not giving priority entry so spent 90min shuffling along the lines ...

They walked down to the Pont des Arts and found a position to set up their picnic of French champagne, frommage, crusty baguettes, fruit and to add an international flavour to their picnic, sushi. They sat and talked for a couple of hours then a fifteen piece brass band set up opposite them.

He asks if I want to exchange information, so we can keep in touch. I said, verbatim, no that would be weird. He doesn't understand. I mean, we literally just met, why would we keep in touch? I barely keep in touch with people I know. After that, I head back to hotel for another shower and then bed. Strange but successful ...
