“A lovely hotel in the heart of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Agreed totally with previous reviewers. Right in the heart of Paris, with Eiffel Tower just a few minutes away. Invalides Metro station is only around the corner. A lot of choices for dining, also local cafes.
Service is good and hotel staffs speak English. Please note that this is not your major chain kind of hotel, there is a rustic feel to it. However it is very clean, commendation to housekeeping staff.
A small, older style lift is available if needed.

Stayed here from 24 April 2013 for 4 nights. Really loved it!! Location is very good and pleasant, near 2 grocery stores and lots of cafes and near to the Metro too. Nice walking distance to the Eiffel Tower :) Requested for a room with Eiffel Tower view, simply love it. Will definately stay here again.

Our family enjoyed staying here in may 2013. The hotel is pleasant and well priced for its location. We were able to walk easily to the Eiffel Tower. Even got a sneaky view from the room window. The Metro is only around the corner. Beds were more comfortable than most hotels. The bathroom was very large.
I was a bit worried about the windows opening so wide. An unsupervised toddler could easily fall out. Just stay close to your children. maybe when they renovate they might think about modifying the windows. The reception staff had enough English to direct us to good carparking. Was very helpful to know that street parking is free in the weekend.
From this hotel there is no point driving in Paris. Park your car and take public transport or walk.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as we thought the price was a little steep. But there were some nice restaurants nearby.

First visit to Paris with family. We are very happy with the service. The staff was very helpful, friendly and made an effort to speak English. Very close to the Eiffel Tower. centrally located.
Nice breakfast buffet. Worth the money.

This was our family's first visit to Paris and we wanted a central location to visit all of the sites: this was a perfect location! Close to the Eiffel Tower, restaurants, Metro stations, grocery stores...everything! Front desk personnel were very nice; very helpful, and did not mind speaking English with us (some family members could speak French). They recommended nice restaurants for dinner within walking distance. Very nice breakfast in the hotel every morning. Room was clean, large, with a separate sitting room; nice sized bathroom, also.

I would definitely recommended this hotel.

My husband and I just finished spending a week in Paris at this hotel. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and they spoke English. That was great since that is our first language. The room was clean and much larger than I expected for a European hotel. We were able to use the WiFi provided free for the guests. They had a nice breakfast. (cost 15 Euros per person) They did little things like mail my postcards for me. They called a taxi for us when we were leaving for airport on return flight. We were able to walk to many of the sights and enjoy the neighborhood. We could see the Eiffel tower from our room. It was only about 4 blocks from us. For a first time visit to Paris, it was ideal. I would recommend it and I would stay there again.

This was my second stay at La Bourdannais and again, it is situated so well for someone who is only there for a short time and interested in seeing all the sites. You could easily see the Eiffel Tower out of the bedroom; it is only a 5 minute walk to a major Metro station (Ecole Militaire); there are markets very close by to pick up cheese, baguettes and wine for light dinners and lovely bistros surrounding the neighbourhood. The hotel is typically European - meaning small and not appropriate for very large people as you would not be able to get in and out of the water closet but it is charming and all that you need. The staff is amazing - SO helpful and willing to go out of their way to accomodate your needs. We booked taxis and trips through them and everything was smooth as French butter. The prices are quite reasonable and certainly worth the investment. Oh by the way, if you have to order a taxi - try VIA CABs (like the large old British taxi cabs) viacab.fr 01 83 77 83 77 - they offer fixed rates for airport pick-ups and local trips.
