We had a wonderful stay at the Royal Phare Hotel. Our room had a view of the Eiffel Tower and was just a few blocks away for an easy stroll. Market street Rue Cler was on the next block which made for a delightful afternoon collecting items for a picnic in the gardens by the tower. The hotel was perfectly... More

This hotel certainly lives up to it's name, Phare meaning lighthouse. The internal staircase simply goes around and around forever! Quite quaint. And this place without a doubt wins the award for smallest elevator in the world, it had gone seen to be believed!! One person at a time! An experience indeed. The room was quite old looking, but we... More

If you're looking for a really cheep place to stay in Paris this is your spot. It's sorta clean and the rooms being extremely outdated make it appear even less clean than it is. Fine if you're backpacking with your bros through Europe. Bottom line its below the minimum I would expect from a 2 star hotel.

I'll say what everyone who has stayed here is thinking but hasn't had the guts to say: If this hotel were anywhere else in the world, you would call it a "crappy motel." We spent six nights of our honeymoon here and the only nice thing we have to say is that it's in a great location and has a... More

When we emerged from the metro we found the hotel right away, and there were numerous restaurants nearby. Our room was on the 3rd floor, so we were grateful for the small, but functional lift. Naturally the room was small, as most hotels are in Paris, but we had a view of the Eiffel Tower from our window! It was... More

I've been to Paris many times, and stayed in a range of hotels (from five-star to small basic ones). So I came to appreciate value - as many hotels in Paris are ridiculously over-priced for what they offer. Thus I recommend going to a basic hotel in a great location, paying a fair price and splurging on experiences and food... More

We had just one night in Paris, so we wanted a great location to be able to see as much as we could in the short time we were there. The Royal Phare was perfect for us. We could easily walk to the Eiffel Tower and the river as well as many great cafés and side streets. We stayed on... More

Very good location. Short walk to Eiffel Tower and even shorter walk to Rue Cler and Metro stop right out the front. Immediately around are a quite a few nice restaurants and a supermarket is right next door. Room was very small and basic but had a view of the Eiffel Tower. Have to buzz door 24hrs to get access....

Pros: many amenities nearby, including restaurants, bakeries, Kozy cafe, etc. generally quite clean, friendly staff, free wifi, fridge, room us small but typical for Paris. Good value, right beside metro stop. Cons: warm in the summer, no AC but there are fans, tiny elevator. We stayed here 4 nights.
