... to ours, asked us in halting English whether we were British or American. When we told her, she asked whether we knew what day tomorrow would be. I finally realized she was speaking of D-Day, June 6, 1944. As she gently squeezed my hand as she took her leave, it became clear she wanted us to know how much the French of her generation appreciated the sacrifices of those Americans who lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy, 70-years ...
... Centre - a place we first visited about 35 years ago!! As it didn't open for another 2 hours we enjoyed window shopping before sheltering from the rain in a cafe for an early lunch for Rupert - I was saving myself for a patisserie! As the rain stopped we decided to hunt down another place from the past - Bofinger Restaurant, which is where we ate with Derek after the last time we went to Paris with him for the France v England rugby match. It was still where ...
... of his places in Italy and know more about Wisconsin. This was funny because we had now had two very pleasant experiences with French people and everyone warns that they are very rude to Americans. We found the cafe and they told us that it would be a 1.5 hour wait, but we had gone all the way there and couldn't turn back now so we put down our names and went in search of a cafe to grab a drink and relax until it was time. We found a small cafe (literally maybe 8 ...
... through time!). My nose is runny from the heat of my dish, but the cheap bottle of red that i have on hand smoothes it out for me. So ends my final evening in Paris. I end up writing the previous day's exploits until 2am again, putting off the tidying and bag packing for tomorrow morning. A four-day stay in the city of lights was, evidently, somewhat ambitious. But i am tired and ready to slow my pace down. My time in the Loire Valley begins tomorrow. The final leg of my journey ...
... around before we headed down to the second level. I was so glad we made it to the second level safely and was more excited to enjoy the height from there. Of course, Ez had to pee and wouldn't you know it, they have a bathroom on the Eiffel Tower on the second level. This is a good thing because he would never have made it otherwise. We ended our night by going to a hill, Trocedero, that has a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower at night, plus ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Timhotel Tour Eiffel Paris
Small yet compact yet comfortable and clean
We found the tiny lift highly amusing. 2 people one bag and a rucksack - its was jammed full. no kidding! Stairs nice and wide. We had hoped for a view on the 4th of 6 floors, of the Eiffel Tower - but sadly didn't.
Bathrooms and bedroom very clean and BBC prime on TV. No extras in bathroom. Great location for most things - esp metro. Eiffel 10 mins walk away. Open air market on Wednesday 2 mins walk. Highly recommend the Italian restaurant across the road. very friendly, quick service and good food. not expensive either. We would definitley book this hotel again as staff were very friendly and helpful. It was literally somewhere to sleep as there were no other facilities in the hotel - but that all we needed.
Good clean hotel in a nice location
Stayed here in May 2004. Twin room had everything we required. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Very convenient to Eiffel Tower - a lovely walk at night to see the lights. We were going to Roland Garros for the French Open Tennis Championship and this hotel was ideally situated for the metro. Plenty of good restaurants in the locality. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a fantastic trip!!!!!!!!
The Timhotel was just as the reveiws stated. Great for the price, Great location 10 mins. from the Eiffel Tour, resturants, supermarkets, cafes, atm machines, internet cafe, all in a 1-2 block radius. Metro 2 blocks away and bus line at the corner. The hotel room is small just enough room to walk around but well furnished and very clean.The lift is tiny (only enough room for 2 poeple without luggage no kidding) The maid was very thorugh each day clean towels and linens each day were wonderful after a full day of sightseeing. Didn't eat hotel's breakfast (it wasn't included in our room fee 8.50 eur. each) We ate at Mcdonald's for about 7.00 eur. for both of us. (3 blocks left of hotel door) This was our first trip to Paris. It was great the staff speak english and where so helpful and friendly.We would definitely stay here again but would like a room on the 6 floor we here it has a veiw of the Eiffel Tour!!!! We stayed 12/25 - 12/31 There's also a laundry mat across the street. It's the prefect spot if you don't mind the small space We didn't!!!
Small, but great for the price
The Tim Hotel Eiffel Tower in Paris is quite small, but the staff was friendly and most spoke English well. The rooms were VERY small, but more than adequate if your plan is to see Paris and not hang out at the hotel. There is no air conditioning so keep that in mind for warm weather. They do offer a computer for the use of the guest with a small internet access fee. The breakfast was the same everyday, but more than enough to get you started on your day of sight seeing.
Terrible! dont expect much service they ran out of croissants!
I took my father and recently widowed sister here for three nights in feb 2004.
we went for a rest and relaxing few days. the area was good for getting about and the hotel was clean and comfortable.However the noise during the first two nights mon & tues was terrible. People were running up and down the staircase from about 2am!
a market had appeared under the metro at dupliex around the corner and as there was hardly any breakfast left at 9am we presumed the traders were staying there.
laughably on wednesday night a security gaurd knocked on our room amd told us to stop talking this was at 11pm. complaints to reception were met with blank faces. never again.
ps my father is 80 and both my sister and I are heading for the big 50 so we were hardly raving.
Great Hotel for the Money
I was extremely happy with this hotel. I have stayed in quite a few tourist class hotels and this was superior. The location is perfect, walking distance to la Tour Eiffel and directly on a metro stop. Great little "homey" neighboorhood with a bakery, wine shop, grocery and an open air market within the block. The hotel rooms were small (typical for the city) but extremely clean. The housekeeper did an extremely thorough cleaning EVERY DAY... I mean spotless. Service was great. Lovely little breakfast of pastries, meats, cheeses and breads. Everything you need to enjoy your trip on a budget. I highly recommend.
Great Location! Great Experience!
Small room but it was Paris. The location was perfect, safe, with a lots of convenient food options around. Convenient metro access. It was a clean, well-kept facility. We will stay there again.
Nice hotel for the price
My wife and I stayed here for a week during March 2004. We payed 75 euros a night. For the price, we found it to be a good value. Now don't expect a grand lobby or any of the usual U.S. amenities. The rooms are very small - barely enough room to walk around the bed. The elevator is incredibly small - 2 persons are a tight squeeze. But the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are good-sized and very clean. The staff (mostly students) were very courteous and helpful. Our only disappointment was no English-language TV. The best feature is location. About 10 minute walk from Eiffel Tour. About 1 minute walk to the Dupleix metro station. And lots of neighbordhood shops and restaurants all around. We would stay there again.
It is located about 10 minutes walking from the tour eiffel, it is clean but the rooms are very small, for the same price we stay in a very big rooms in other cities of europe. so it maybe a little expensive.
