Hotel De La Tour Eiffel (17, rue de l’ Exposition, 75007 Paris, France) is a quaint 2-star property in the heart of Paris. It is located within walking distance from Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Invalides and Ecole Militaire. It is in the expensive 7th Arrondissement in Paris and is near metro stations for easy access to the other places of interest around Paris’ city proper.
We stayed in this property from Sept. 2-4, 2006. We booked a standard triple bedroom for Euro 109/night inclusive of taxes without breakfast.
What I like:
The friendly staff who were willing to converse in English to provide us tips on how to go around the city on foot and by metro.
Its location is superb! You traverse certain streets and next thing you know it, you’re standing at the foot of Eiffel Tower or walk further down you’ll see Trocadero and if you walk either to the side of Eiffel, you’ll see Ecole Militaire.
There are plenty of groceries and restaurants nearby so you can buy your necessities or have a bite of the Parisian gourmet.
What I don’t like:
For a triple bedroom, I expected to see at least 3 single beds or 1 double and 1 single. We were provided 1 queen-sized bed and a folding bed for the 3rd person. My daughter took the folding bed since she was still small then and the bed could carry her weight.
The room is small for the 3 of us. There was barely a space left to place our 2 big luggages. There was a small cabinet near the door so we took advantage of the space inside and placed one luggage in an upright position just so we could move around the room.
With a small room comes a small a bathroom.
The stair is a bit small and dimly lit.
Aside from the little nuisances, we were still satisfied with our stay there for the fact that it was in a quiet area but near major attractions.
I recommend this to couples but not to families with kids or teens unless you are booking another room in the property. Otherwise, you may consider another bigger hotel. However, you get what you paid for and I think it’s a reasonable amount for a 2-star property in the heart of the City of Lights.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pictures of the hotel nor the room we got. The photos in this review are taken from Tripadvisor and credit goes to the photos’ owners.
