We chose this Hotel as we were visiting friends who live in a tiny flat on the same street. The reception staff unkempt and rude, most unhelpful. We booked a twin but the 2 beds were together and we had to move the beds ourselves.. the blankets were worn the towels of very poor quality. The breakfast service was cramped... More

So, I was in Paris for 24 hrs, with plans of not sleeping. However, things died down Monday night, so I decided to get a hotel. While I passed several decent places, I settled on this place for 110 Euro/night. While it is a basic room, it's location is fantastic as it is minutes away from the Eiffel Tower. Also,... More

Warm welcome, but a basic hotel. Got a good price just walking in off the street and rooms were very clean and comfortable, ideal for the major touristy bits. Tried other hotels in the area and this was the best price by far, lovely restaurant / bar a few doors away. Would revisit

This little 2-star hotel is conveniently located very near the Eiffel tower, in the 7th district, one of Paris' gratest neighborhoods. It is reasonably tidy, although rooms are tiny. Wi-fi works only at the reception and do not expect to watch anythign else than French TV. Rooms/bathrooms are tiny, but I guess this is what you get for approx 140... More

The hotel is in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Make to ask for a room with a view of the tower. We watched the twinkling tower lights from our window. The rooms are the typically small size we have experienced in other Paris hotels. The bathroom was large and everything was clean, the stairs are a bit daunting to... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Immediately upon check in I was having second thoughts. The staff are rude and demanding. The room was the size of a closet with the furniture and fittings very very old. I should mention that I paid extra to have a larger room. The shower did not drain and made... More

The hotel was conveniently located near the Eiffel Tower and lots of cafés. A 5 min walk to the metro. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the women who worked daytime weekdays. My only complaint is that there was only one electrical outlet and it was not in the bathroom. The bathroom did have a hair dryer. If you... More

I'd recommend if you absolutely have to book this hotel and there's no other choice, call them after making your reservation to ask if you can get the "bigger" room. We booked online and when we got there, we got a room that is so tiny, I literally could not fit in the shower. I am 5'9" tall and 155... 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.
