We have just got back from our Parisian stay at the Eiffel Seine. It was a nice hotel in a good location for the Eiffel Tower and good metro links to visit all the other major sites. A great place for those that like art nouveau.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by a friendly member of staff at the front desk, who checked us in very quickly and gave us all the main details required to navigate around the hotel and be able to use the amenities available. We were also given a map of central Paris with a metro map, which was very useful throughout our trip.
To our surprise, the lift was very very small. Both me and my husband are of medium build and fitting both of us in the lift with one suitcase and two backpacks felt like a squeeze.
We had a classic Seine-facing room, which was an average size for those found in European cities and it met our needs. The room and bathroom were both nicely decorated, comfortable, and the balcony was nice. As this is a three star hotel, I was not expecting any complimentary toiletries in the bathroom, which was a nice surprise. The beds are comfortable and the room has an air con temperature control panel, which heats and cools the room.
The only problem we had with the room during the stay was the noise of the traffic and metro station across the road that we could hear - despite being on the top floor of the hotel. However, do not let this deter you, as it is mainly background noise. You could always ask for a courtyard facing room.
Our stay included breakfast, which was a standard basic continental breakfast consisting of bread/toast, pastries, one juice, a choice of teas, coffee, two cereals, meats, cheeses, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages. The selection of food provided a good start to the day. However, a choice of white and brown bread would have been nice.
In terms of location, the hotel is less then 5 minutes walk to the Eiffel Tower. Perfect if that is where you want to be. In terms of restaurants and the locality, we felt very safe in the area at night and if you come out of the hotel and turn left, there are some restaurants on the main street and side streets.
Regardless of where you stay, you will need to use some form of transport to visit all the major sites as they are quite far apart from each other. Either get the train or very very comfy walking shoes! The train line outside of this hotel (RER C), is fantastic for seeing all the sites. The line takes you to the train stations nearest to Napoleon's Tomb (Invalides) and Notre Damn & St Germain (St. Michele), Versailles château, as well as others. It also has great links to other lines, allowing easy travel.
All in all, a good hotel. I would recommend it.
We stayed in a Seine facing room. This was okay, but be warned that this also means your room will b...
