Booked online via Orbitz and paid extra for the view of the Eiffel Tower. The view from room 602 was lovely. I only wish that the bed were on the oposite wall so that you could see the Tower from there. Small but comfortable room with a compact but very up to date bathroom. VERY dark hallway off of the...

We stayed for two nights at the end of January 2014 for my husbands 30th birthday. The location was perfect, literally outside the Cambronne metro station, a few stops from the Eiffel Tower & Arc de Triomphe. We actually managed to walk back from the Eiffel Tower one day as well which wasn't far at all (with the help of... More

Stayed in Eiffel tower view room on the 5th floor for one night with our two boys. Nice room design, balcony with three doors - who say Paris hotel rooms are tiny? Comfortable beds. Very friendly staff gave us good recommendations for eating out. After dinner stroll to the tower, about 10 minutes. Great!

Everything about this hotel was perfect- our Eiffel Tower view room, the helpful staff, and the location. When we first arrived we were disappointed there wasn't better parking. You have to find a spot on the side of the street and parallel park. When we went into the hotel we were kindly greeted with beverages and they let us check... More

This was a charming hotel with a great location. We stayed in May of 2013 for four days and really enjoyed the close proximity to the metro stations, the Eiffel Tower and shops and restaurants. My only complaint would be that the rooms are quite small, with very little space for luggage or clothing. It would be perfect for a... More

Brilliant hotel, great location and lovely staff. My partner and I were very impressed with this quirky boutique hotel. The staff went out of their way to make us feel accomodated and welcome in Paris. Zoca who checked us in, gave us the warmest welcome and was very helpful with ideas and recommendations for Paris. The rooms are small but... More

This hotel is ideal for relaxing in Paris, me and my partner enjoy to walk everywhere but you do have the convenience of an underground station across the road if you prefer. The station is well connected to most of the main lines, saves a lot of train hopping. The hotel its self is lovely, staff were great and the... More

The hotel is part of a row of shops. The room is quite small and facing a metro station. The hotel is overpriced and does not come with breakfast and there is no coffee making facilities in the room. However they gave me a kettle to come down and take hot water anytime. The breakfast area can only accommodate 10... More

Loved the look of this hotel online especially the super cute top hat lights and the sleek black colour scheme, it was a nice break from all the 'pretty french' accommodation we had been enjoying but... it has some faults and should be cheaper than it is. The room although non smoking smelt like cigarettes and cigars and the planter... More

After setting out our ideals with Flight Centre for our anniversary weekend we were very much pressurised by FC to select First Hotel Paris. Quotes used were "only one room left" "very few seats on flight", in hindsight i now recognise as great tactics to get you to commit. When booking I had limited time to research and decided to...
