Timhotel Tour Eiffel
Travel Blogs from Paris
Paris....so much to do, so little time. First stop was of course the Eiffel tower. We could have taken the lift but it was much more fun taking the 2000 or so steps to the top....even with Trav's bad knee (love those painkillers). The view is worth it though; you get spectacular views of the entire city. Another must do was the Musee de Invalides; …
This is the fourth time I visit the amazing city of Paris! and undoubtedly the most wonderful time of all
We were lucky to see the beginning of Christmas in Paris, Avenue des Champs Elysees had hundreds of Christmas stalls with waffles, crepes, souvenirs and a lovely holiday lighting! We always spent our final …
... area and a bar to the side. They did have little stations where you could rate and review the airport which was amusing, and matched with what I imagined of Singapore.
The next flight was on one of the new airbus A380 planes. This seemed exciting at first, but turns out once your on board it's pretty much like every other plane, unless maybe you're in first class which I suspect was upstairs and from what I could see of the stairs and ...
... toward the Arche de Triomphe and the general direction of the hotel.
The Arche was spectacularly lit, telling the story of the Tour and thousands staying to watch it.
Eventually we found a metro train station and jumped on for the last 4-5 stations to our hotel at La Defense - the end of the line.
A shower, a brief planning meeting (let's talk over breakfast at a civilised 8am) and that was it for the night, the TDF and our Polka Dot ...
... selling Eiffel Tower miniatures ( are these guys everywhere, or what? ), Romanians selling god knows what? And very second person trying to sell you beer, straight out of the slab, which had probably been knocked off earlier in the day.
Just a grubby area.
So....back on a packed train home, crepes and beer for tea, and on other full day completed.
Along day planned for tomorrow, so off to bed.

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.
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.
