Great location near a metro station that gets you anywhere you need to go. Walking distance to Eiffel Tower and the Seine. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby and the area feels quite safe. The lobby area is spacious and staff were polite and helpful but not exactly bursting with enthusiasm. The room was small but clean and nicely decorated. Bed was huge and comfortable. Bathroom was a bit neglected with yellow toilet and cracked tile. The shower was tiny with barely enough room to turn 360 degrees.

The wifi worked really well. Biggest complaint was that the front door was always locked so any time you want to enter (even in the middle of the day) you have to ring the door bell. The staff are always there to open the door but the fact that you can't get into your hotel at any time of the day is a bit ridiculous.

Overall a good place to stay in central Paris to access all the main sights by foot or metro.

This hotel is very nice and charming. It is old fashioned but very stylish. Near hotel (2 minutes) is metro station from where you can go to Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe...By walk you can reach Eiffel tower under 10 minutes. All around are nice shops, cafes, parks...Or if you are fast food fan - step away is Mc Donald. So the location is great and it is easy to find all major sights. Staff was helpfull and speak english. It is worth to visit if you are looking for nice and safe location near everything. Taxi ride from Orly to this hotel was only 30 €, so if there are 2 i thing it is better to take taxi instead of public transport.

wonderful hotel all the staff so friendly loved that they had staff on the front desk at all times very clean.Great rooms this hotel has tons of charm and would stay again.Very close to metro and Eiffel tower is 10 minutes away .Very safe neighbourhood. Did find that the breakfast was pricey but some mornings we went out and picked up breakfast .
Would NOT take the metro from the train station again would get a cab next time as we had problems with pickpockets.that followed us from the train stain and tried get into our bags a couple of them.

A very nice hotel located in a calm road but very near to a central metro station. Walking distance to the Tour d'Eiffel.
You can either have breakfast in the hotel (they have a nice patio, excellent for good weather) or in one of the many Bistrots near. There is a Monoprix across the street if you need to shop for food.
For central paris, it has very low rates - double room starts at 100€/night. You can't expect a huge room for that, but the rooms are decorated nicely and are clean.
It's the third time I stayed in this hotel, and I already look forward to my next Paris trip.

Hotel de l'Avre comes highly recommended from me. My wife and I had a lovely stay just after the new year. It's in a great location and is easy to get to any of the main sights in Paris, but still in an area that allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle as well. There is a wonderful garden out the back too. The rooms are very well kept and a good size too. The staff are excellent too. I special thanks to Victor at the front desk. More than happy to stay here again and again.

A lovely stay at this hotel while I was in Paris for work in early November. Very well located, the hotel is just a couple of minutes from the La Motte Piquet - Grenelle metro station, next to rue du Commerce, and also close to the Seine and to the Champs de Mars with the Eiffel Tower. Hotel rooms in Paris are generally small, but my room was more than adequate in size. Comfortable bed, a work desk and free wi-fi, windows looking out over the very quiet street, and a very clean bathroom with shower, and interesting and fun decorating touches meant that i enjoyed being in my room. Breakfast was in their little breakfast/dining area overlooking the hotel's back garden. A typical French breakfast there was the choice of hot beverage and juice, and then a plate with deliciously fresh croissant and baquette, little jam/honey, cheese, a delish yogurt (hence my request for honey) and apple sauce. Very tasty and soo fresh. I would have loved to have had a boiled egg, but that is not on their menu. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and pleasant and accomodating to requests. I would definitely stay here again and recommed.

Our first time in Paris, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect hotel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, even helping with my poor French. The room itself was gorgeously made out, whilst the food was typically French (not a bad thing). Would happily stay here again in the future, and would definitely recommend to anyone.
