Reviewed May 5, 2014

I stayed here two years ago with my husband and kids, and I came back this month with my Mom and sister, and as long as the current owners run this sweet retreat, I will come back here every othe time I come to Paris!

Location, location, location ... the Rue Cler neighourhood cannot be beat. Everything at your fingetips from cafes to pharmacies, chocolates to cheese, boutiques to post offices ... and the Mtero is right there. Close to the Eiffel Tower and yet quiet enough to sleep with the windows ajar.

Cute, cute, cute ... well appointed but not fussy. A good breakfast, and also breaky around the corner if you prefer. Lovely beds and quiet rooms. Lift is good and A/C a real asset. Nice showers etc.
N
People, people, people ... and this of course is the real reason for perfection ... everyone at the hotel was so kind and so helpful. We wanted for nothing and got everything!

I could not have asked for better and have no reason to ever search for a more delightful place to call temporary home in Paris.

My wife and I had a fantastic time here, mostly due to Mo's great help in orienting us to the city. We wouldn't have gotten on the Seine boat tour if he hadn't brought it to our attention (and sold us tickets right there in the hotel). The room was small, but the bed was comfortable; since we had no intention of hanging out in our room during the day, it was perfect. The hotel breakfast is nice but a little pricey-- if you're not in a hurry you can get a great meal at any of the sidewalk cafes on Rue Cler. Also, make sure to try some macarons at the little chocolatier across the street... very good!

Room Tip: Don't worry about rooms on the street side... they say they're noisier, but we didn't he...

Thank you for your message. We are happy that you were satisfy about your stay at the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet and appreciated your room and the wonderful location of the Hotel just by rue Cler.
It is great if you liked our breakfast, we try to propose the largest variety of choice of fresh products (fruits, eggs, deli's, cheeses and most of all breads and viennoiseries). The cafes around the Hotel are fantastic and the bakeries offer delicious croissants, pains au chocolat, breads, brioches... We love rue Cler.

Yummy !

My husband and I spent 8 nights at this wonderful hotel. The location is excellent but the best thing are the people that run the hotel. They truly made us feel like family. When you're in a city that you're not familiar with, staying at a place where the staff truly wants to help make your stay perfect is a priceless advantage. I thank everyone for being so wonderful to my husband and I during our 8 night visit. You are all amazing!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April, but I wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel itself is in a great location - a five-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and less than half a block from the nearest subway station. It is also right around the corner from Rue Clare, a street that is full of cafes The room was cozy and comfortable - not large, but it had everything we needed and the free wifi was a HUGE plus. As others have said, though, what really separates this hotel from the rest is their outstanding staff. We were always greeted with a warm welcome and a smile, and Mo gave great recommendations for places to eat, things to see, transportation, etc. For a pleasant stay in Paris, stay here!

Dear guests,

Thank you so much for the kind message you took the time to wrote about your stay at the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet. If we helped in any way to make it unforgettable than we accomplished our duty : to offer pieces of Paris to our guests. These pieces are suggestions of restaurants, amazing chocolate shops, short ways to join Versailles or any information that you would need. We are happy you felt home with us, we felt like family with you ! Next time you miss the rue Cler and its small cafés, don't hesitate, the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet and its whole staff waits for you !

Take care !

A wonderful location very close to the Metro. Rooms are small, but very clean, The bathroom could use additional shelf space, and the closet space is very limited. Mo and Vanessa were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is not included, but may be purchased for 12 Euro.

Dear guests,

It is a pleasure to read the comment about the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet. As you mentionned, we are indeed very lucky to be so well located just a few minutes from the Eiffel Tower, by the Invalides and the Ecole Militaire, at the corner of the most adorable and typical pedestrian street, the rue Cler, It is loaded with cafés, bakeries, cheese shops and its fresh market is astonishing : fresh fruits and vegetables from every part of the french country, deli's, breads, pastries, flowers...
Don't forget to come back !

Cordially,

Mo

This is a small and comfortable hotel walking distance from the Eiffel Tower. The staff were extremely helpful and gave us some great recommendations on places to visit and eat. The room was comfortable and the wifi was complimentary. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to stay close to the Eiffel tower.
