Reviewed 19 February 2012

We picked this hotel due to its close proximity to the Eiffel Tower and I must say that it was excellent for that purpose. It's a mere five minute walk with plenty of eateries and two supermarkets along the way from e metro station. But, when we turned up at 2pm the room was not ready and we were asked to wait for fifteen minutes. The room was not even ready at three! The very welcoming chap at the reception offered us free coffee for the inconvenience but I must say we were really dissatisfied. We had dinner plans and nowhere to change!

Tips for travelers - ask for a first floor room, the lift cannot manage more than one person and rarely works. The walls are so thin that we had the pleasure of our neighbors sneezing throughout our stay - barring that - excellent location.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor! The lift is of no use and the red carpet does nothing to your trek up the windi...

Visited Paris for a weekend break, wanted to find a hotel from which we could easily access all the major sites. This hotel was well placed, a short walk to the Ecole Militare metro stop (5 mins) meant we could easily jump on the metro and travel all around the city. You are also only a short walk from the Eiffel Tower, and also within walking distance on Champ Elysees, Notre Dame, Louvre, Latin Quater and much more.
The hotel itself was nice, but the rooms were very small and basic. Breakfast was not included in the price of our rooms, which I was expecting. Also the greeting on arrival was pretty hostile.
We arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport and went on the RER to Notredame where you can change onto the metro and change at another station to get to Ecole Militare. We got a taxi from Notre Dame which cost around €9.
All in all a well placed hotel but I think if you really searched you could probably find more for your money, but suited our needs.

Was planning a trip to Paris for multiple days and I wanted somewhere which was both very cheap and incredibly near to landmarks [difficult to find]. When it turns out this hotel was just about 70 euros a night and within a 3 mins walk to the Eiffel tower, I was thinking, surely the hotel itself might not be so great. Turns out I was wrong. The service staff were extremely helpful and friendly and didn't mind helping me sort out destinations and venues. Furthermore, despite locking myself out of my room a few times and having many queries, the staff did not mind one bit and were more than pleased to assist. Also, internet is wifi and FREE which is just incredulous given the price. The room was cosy and well-furnished, serviced well daily and very clean. If there's a gripe about this place the only thing is that my room's toilet is outside even though the bath is within the room but this is very much offset by the great service, the location and the ridiculously great prices of the hotel. A definite must-stay if you wanna enjoy your trip in Paris!

Room Tip: Choose a room on upper storey, should be quieter than mine on the ground floor.

This hotel was absolutely perfect.

The location could not have been better. A five minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, 20 minutes to the D'Orsay Museum and about 30 minutes to the Louvre. A little longer of a stroll and you are at the Champs Elysee. Just amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was great, the bathroom was a good size compared to most. The room was serviced daily and always was left clean and done promptly.

The breakfast left alot to be desired and you could easily go to a restaurant or bakery close by for a bit less money. However, I am a cofee drinker and the staff always made sure they would accomodate me.

Be sure to take advantage of the shuttle service to the airport instead of taxi. It's about half the price and the front desk will set it up for you.

I will most definately stay here again.
