“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We spent 6 nights in this hotel and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was small, but very nice. The bed was very comfortable. We were on the side street, second floor and it was very quiet, even with the windows open. The bathroom was roomy and very modern with wonderful hot water for a nice soak at the end of a long day. We enjoyed the elevator, free Wi-fi in the room, and the helpful staff. The location is perfect....the metro is only a short walk away and you walk past Rue Cler...our favorite spot. We could walk to many great restaurants from the hotel...The beautiful gold dome of Invalides was our beacon to get back to the hotel. I would definitely stay here again-we had a wonderful experience!!

Judged by Parisienne standards, the rooms are large. I even had a double bed!
Great view of Les Invalides and walking distance to Rodin, Eiffel and more in the heart of the 7th. Great choice - unless it's hot. This hotel is NOT air conditioned. Basic breakfast offered - primarily yogurt and croissant. Make time to dine at Chez Eux next door - a real gem with family style service.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room with a view of Les Invalides, on a high floor (to avoid street noise).

This gorgeous Parisian hotel could not be anymore perfect for a trip to Paris. It's location is close to most of the sites and plenty of local cafe's and shops. The staff are lovely and extremely helpful. The rooms are petit but beautifully decorated and everything is so clean. It's recently been renovated so it has a modern feel to it. Beds are very comfortable. For a great dining experience walk to Rue de Cler. Great choices for places to eat and a few local shops with clothing, fresh food and wine. All in all, I would stay at this hotel everytine I go to Paris. Highly recommended.

You don't come to Paris for the hotel room you come for Paris. That said hotel de France invalides worked well while in Paris.

Across the street from Napoleon's tomb and within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower. This is a great launching pad to see Paris

I've stayed here twice and will stay here again on my next visit to Paris

Have stayed there twice, once in 2007 and again in 2009 , and its a lovely small convenient Parisian hotel ideally located. Get a room with a view of the golden dome of Les Invalides, worth the price alone!

Room Tip: With a view of Les Invalides.

If you feel like a parisian, this is your place. Everything is neat. In front, we can see Invalides and the lighted night view is just wonderful. But if you expect American style comfort, this is not a place. The room is very small and not functional. My room'shower needed much muscle to get hot water. Also,the corridor is so narrow and I am worried in case of fire. As other say, the front desk persons are very frendly and ready to help. This is definitely a big plus for holiday travelers. Also, this establishment is quite close to UNESCO and French gov agencies, so it may be good for business as well. This hotel is definitely worth trying but I am opting for an easier choice even paying slightly more at next time to come to Paris.

Room Tip: Room facing invalids

We stayed for 3 days at the Hotel de France. From the front door the Invalides (tomb of Napoleon etc) is just across the road and the Eiffel Tower, Musee D'orsay and Louvre are in very easy walking distance. We had a room on the top floor facing onto the courtyard which was very quiet and entirely adequate with a generous bathroom. The front desk staff all spoke excellent English and were very helpful and friendly. We walked to the Eiffel Tower, Arc, Sacre Coer and Louvre in one day. Paris is great with everything being so compact and easy to access. Go to the Pantheon for some of the best views in Paris. Toward the Tower about 5oom away are some excellent small restaurants, patiseries and a supermarket.

Room Tip: The courtyard rooms at the back are nice and quiet.
