I've been travelling a lot this year and have stayed in some lovely places run by great people with great staff and service. But this charming small hotel, on the corner of the beautiful Rue Cler, is one of the standouts. My attractive room was small but not uncomfortably so, and the bathroom was a decent size and immaculately clean... More

Seven of us spent 3 nights in this lovely hotel (recommended by Rick Steves). Because it is so small (16 rooms) we booked 4 rooms many months in advance and got great rates communicating directly by e-mail. Rooms were very small but clean and comfortable and AC worked well. Bathroom wa well lit. Breakfast was ok (nothing elaborate) in small... More

Friendly front desk and wonderful location, would definitely stay at Hotel Motte Picquet again the next time Rue Cler calls. Something about this neighborhood, with its street markets and cafes, makes the traveler feel like they've been transported back in time to Paris of yesteryear. This Hotel serves as a dependable homebase with clean, comfortable (and air conditioned) rooms, free... More

This hotel is well-located in the gorgeous 7th arrondissement of Paris, just steps away from the charming rue Cler and a short walk to more famous attractions like the Tour Eiffel. About an average size for Europe, My room was quaintly decorated and had amenities like an efficient air conditioner and a refrigerator, and a more modern bathroom and shower.... More

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
