“Good hotel - GREAT location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

It was a bit expensive but we arrived on Bastille day and stayed for 4 nights.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. English was spoken well at the front desk. We tried our best French but in the end, all communications went better when we stuck to English.

We had requested a quiet room when we made the reservations and were glad we did. The room was on the courtyard on the 2nd floor. Very quiet indeed.

Breakfast was plentiful and very good. We enjoyed an assortment of cheese, pastries, yogurt, cereal, scrambled eggs, bacon, and coffee every morning until 11am.
The location was only a couple of blocks from the Eiffel Tower and less than that to a Metro stop.

We'd stay again if we ever return to Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

Hotel is in a great location. Eiffel Tower and Le Musée de L'Armée are within walking distance as well as several restaurants. Hotel staff spoke English and were very helpful. Room was clean although a bit disappointing, decor needed updating. Breakfast was very good and included hot items.

Room Tip: Front rooms may have a view of Eiffel Tower however will experience traffic noise, rear rooms are qu...

This is a wonderful small quaint hotel near the Ecole Militaire Metro station, a 5 minute walk to Rue Cler and 10 min to the Tour Eiffel. The rooms were simple but very comfortable, the breakfast buffet was excellent. The hotel staff all spoke english and were very helpful. The combination of the location, breakfast, friendliness of the hotel staff and the room give this hidden gem a 5 star rating.

Stayed here for 5 days. Staff was helpful, nice, and always available. Location couldnt be better. Room was a good size, with AC, and a decent sized bathroom. Wifi was absolutely terrible. Had to sit in the stairwell to have my phone work. Terrible Wifi seems to be a French thing more than a just this hotel mind you as we had this issue all over France. There was another traveller complaining in the lobby about the same thing at one point so it isnt just us. They do have two computers that are great and we used quite a bit with a printer so we could print our boarding passes. That was a great thing to have. Only thing holding the hotel back from a 5 star review is that the price is very good for the location and the staff is great. For 200 euro a night and then another 30 euro a day for breakfast it just cant add a great 'value' to the review as it is still a bit dated inside but you cant expect the world or for the hotel to lose money so you cant fault them. I would definitely recommend and will probably stay at this exact hotel again.

We had a very pleasant stay at this Hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel is a bit "tired" but nonetheless very clean and most things in working order. The WIFI services were terrible and very unreliable and only really accessible in the reception area. Despite this little inconvenience, it made our stay in Paris very pleasurable. It is in a great location (walking distance from the Eiffel Tower, Napoleon's Tomb) and the rates are exemplary for Paris. I would recommend it.

Excellent location, relatively big trippel room with very nice bathroom, clean and quiet, good breakfast (10 euro per person for families of 3+) and friendy staff. 5 min walk to the Eiffel tower, close to metro station, market with wine, water and food right next door, many restaurants including the excellent 7eme vin right around the corner. Will definitively stay here again if we come back to Paris, highly recommended!

The hotel is old - no doubt about that but was very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was excellent. The hotel served breakfast which was very convenient especially when travelling with children, they had a good selection of fruits, cheese, pastries and cereal for breakfast. More than anything else, is the location, the hotel is conveniently located near subway station, Rue Cler market place and a host of restaurants.

Room Tip: Able to see the Eiffel tower from room window on upper floors>
