This is a friendly affordable perfectly located hotel! We were like the Three Little Bears in our room overlooking the avenue, mere steps from the Eiffel Tower, great restaurants, the Seine hop on-off cruises, and the Metro. Hotel staff kindly speak English as do many of the nearby shopkeepers and restauranteurs. The decor is a bit dated but all else more than compensates, not least the breakfast (included). We booked two walking tours at Vayable.com ... recommend a search of this site for Paris tours. We enjoyed a traipse round the famous bakeries and patisseries with one guide, and a journey to the edges of Paris for the antiques market with another. With their help we saw corners of Paris we would not have found on our own. We would not bother again with the hop on-off bus tours ... take the Seine cruise option instead. The river goes right through the heart of Paris and you will be able to hop on and off at any of the central sights you would like to see. We booked lunch at the Eiffel Tower restaurant but would not recommend this; while the food was good, information about how to access the restaurant for our reservation at the right time was inadequate, and staff at the Eiffel Tower were unhelpful. See the Tower by all means, but skip the restaurant, buy a baguette, and explore the neighborhood instead. We found a well stocked superette a few doors away from the hotel for fruit, cheese and drinks, to keep in the fridge in our room. At night we could crane our heads over the balcony to see the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower. Highly recommended!
