First time to Paris and had only 3 days/ 2 nights as a side trip from Barcelona in early September. Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and at the time it was ranked #10 for hotels in Paris. The immediate area around the hotel is white collar residential and "shuts down" between 9:00 and 11:00 P.M. so there was no discernible traffic noise, party noise, etc. and made for a good night's sleep. We felt very safe at night walking the neighborhood and returning to the hotel from the Metro station, which is truly only one block away. This is not in a touristy area but no matter where you stay in Paris you will ride the Metro, so having the station so close was a bonus. Less than 20 minutes to any part of Paris. Our thought was to stay in a safe, clean, out of the way area and just ride the Metro and Tour Busses to the attractions. A very good plan, in retrospect. This Metro station is only 2 stops away from the major RR, Metro, and Bus Station at Gare Montparnasse, so taking the train to Versailles and transport to and from the airports is very easily accomplished. (Yes, the hotel will allow you to leave your luggage before checkin time and after checkout time) We didn't fully realize what a good choice we had made in Hotel Eden until we did the loop on the tour bus that took us through the Montmarte area where we had reviewed quite a few hotels on-line. The area around Hotel Eden is far superior. If you are a first timer to Paris, before arriving, get familiar with the Paris Metro map and don't hesitate to explore using the Metro and the Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour Bus. So there are many advantages to this location. Now, the hotel itself. Staff could not have been more personable, professional, and accommodating. Yes, the room is tiny by Texas standards, but I guess that is the norm for Paris. Very up to date and clean, though. The bedding was superb, quality mattress and linens. Room 604 was very quiet with no noise from the street, the elevator, or nearby rooms. Perfect. The room had a small refrigerator and hair dryer, but no coffee/tea ability. In the basement, there is a steam room and some fitness equipment. Nice after a long day of walking and sightseeing, but the shower room outside the steam bath needs the floor to be "re-sloped" as the water accumulated uncomfortably. The available breakfast was skimpy for 11 Euros. Just around the corner, we found a cafe that offered a 4 course brunch for 13 Euros which was large enough to split. Quite a few cafes, bakeries, and a Starbucks nearby, plus the aforementioned supermarket. Don't bother with food, coffee, or beverages at the hotel. I was going to give a rating of Very Good as I believe Excellent would be indicative of a true 5 Star Hotel, but all things considered, if and when we return to Paris, we wouldn't even bother looking for another place to stay..... we would just book here. I guess that deserves Excellent.
Do not expect a typical American sized suite, otherwise you will be shocked upon entering your room.
