We decided on Hotel Eiffel Seine due to Trip Advisor so its only fair to return the favor. The stay got off to a bit of a rocky start but ended well. The first night we arrived late and were greeted by a friendly staff member who helped us check in. Side note: Don't think one staff member at reception during the day is quite enough but we were never waiting long to drop our key off or get suggestions. After getting to our room, an adventure b/c the elevator is TINY which makes getting large luggage in an adventure. So I put the bags and wife in the elevator and ran up the flight of stairs. We were on the first floor, street view. Room was small but manageable. Bathroom was nice, room was very clean. The next part was our problem. We located the thermostat to reduce the temperature, which was about 75 degrees and extremely stuffy due to no air movement. Being I sleep at home at about 66 I was pretty uncomfortable however we couldn't get the air to function at all, no fan, no ac, nothing. So we decided we'll just crack the window and get some air flow. Well, the hotel is adjacent to a large intersection and directly across the street from a metro station. While that is very convenient for navigating the city its terrible noise when the window is cracked. So for the rest of the night we battled a stuffy room vs noisy street. Needless to say I didn't sleep at all. The next morning I addressed the issue with the first desk and was informed only the heat was functional this time of year. Thats reasonable, its November, I'm very warm natured, so I asked if we could move room to a courtyard facing room so opening a window wouldn't include the outside noise. I offered to pay any upgrade fees associated b/c I understand, to an extent, their situation. I was first met with a NO, but after then suggesting we'd need to switch hotels b/c I couldn't go through another 100% sleepless night, she found a room that we could upgrade to. 4th floor, courtyard, much larger room, same bathroom, very clean, same tough elevator situation. The rest of the stay was delightful. The staff recommendations for dinner, directions sight seeing were spot on. They continued to be very helpful. I enjoyed the honest bar, wife loved the hotel cat.
Location: Its very convenient to the Metro and Eiffel Tower. I would give the location 4* although next time I would likely pick a different area but that's no reflection on the hotel itself. I just preferred a few other areas.
Ask for a courtyard facing room and avoid the 1st level street side rooms.
