We chose this hotel because it was close to the Eiffel Tower, but ultimately did not end up liking the location so much. The hotel was on a back street where no other cabs could find which made it frustrating at times though we did also take the subway which was easy to navigate. Our room was comfortable and quaint. Great shower and heated towel rack were a plus. Bed was comfortable and a full size mattress (not like other european hotels where two twin beds are shoved together or even separate). Overall a fine experience - the hotel staff were particularly good, pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast was OK. There were a lot of nice little cafe's in the area but I would look to stay somewhere more central next time.

All about location. It has a very good staff who are costumer oriented. Slightly noisy at time day time as there is a school very close. There are many cafes within a couple of blocks from the hotel. The metros were a big plus at la Motte-Picquet. We were in a small room but could manage.

Great location. Average sized rooms for the price. Located close to metro stations, which was a huge plus. Walking distance to the Eiffel tour and river. Best part was likely the morning and day staff. super friendly and helpful. Large range of prices and hotels in paris. I would stay here again.

My husband and I picked this hotel due to its good location (close to centre and Eiffel Tower) and the fact it looked so inviting. We weren't disappointed. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly by the receptionist who took our details and gave us our room key.
The room was small but perfectly acceptable and decorated in a beautifully elegant fashion. The rooms and hotel are very clean and the staff very friendly and attentive.
The only potentially negative point I would raise is the cost of breakfast. For a continental option it cost around 18 euros each so we decided to go and have a look at what was available locally, of which there are quite a few options depending on what you fancy.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would have no hesitation in staying here again or indeed recommending this hotel.

It's a small boutique hotel close to the Eiffel tower. You definitely get what you pay for, and more. The staff is a little bit exaggerated. Rooms and hallways could use some more space.
Don't expect scenic view as you see neighboring buildings through the windows (at least we did).

The overall impression is: pretty nice Parisian hotel near the Eiffel tower for a nice price - would recommend it if you don't want to spend too much money on accommodation (and take a 5* hotel).

Hotel Ares was a lucky find, and a perfect hotel in every respect. The staff were outstanding, and thank you to Severine, Juliette, Isabella and Beddredine for making our stay wonderful. They were cheerful, helpful and went out of their way to look after us. This is a very small, elegant and immaculate hotel. Our room was spacious and clean, the bed and linen perfect. The bathroom was very modern, with Versace decor. Location, location, location is what is important, and we were centrally located, around2 minutes from a Metro stop and numerous bistros, brasseries, patisseries and more. There is no in house food available, no coffee or tea facilities in the room, which we normally require, but that didn't matter, as the eateries were literally around the corner, and all were perfect (see reviews). Their coffee was better than we would have made ourselves, that's for sure! It was maybe a 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and the Seine. The Metro is so easy to figure out and use after a few trips on it, so we were ted to go, if we weren't able to walk. It was literally a Metro line or two from everywhere we wanted to go, including the airport, which saved us around 50€ !
This is an independent hotel, and the major chains could learn much from Hotel Ares. If we ever return to Paris we wouldn't even bother looking for a different hotel. Bonjour, Hotel Ares, and au revoir.

This hotel was very noisey. We did not get any sleep the whole week. For the price we paid, we expected the hotel to be quiet. The rooms have hardwood floors and the walls are very thin. We could hear our neighbors conversation as if they were in our own room, and by neighbors I mean the people next to us, down the hall from us, and upstairs from us.
