Campanile Paris 15 Tour Eiffel, 30 Rue Saint Charles, Paris, 75015
For location alone the Campanile Paris 15 is an unbeatable budget choice, situated in the 15th arrondissement and a mere five minutes walk from Champs de Mars Tour Eiffel Métro and also from the Eiffel Tower itself. The hotel building is on a traditional Parisian street with many levels, yet manages to escape some of the pitfalls most commonly associated with budget hotels in Paris – i.e. that they are cramped and old-fashioned! In contrast, the rooms in the Campanile are certainly compact but are also functional, and most travellers shouldn’t have a problem feeling comfortable during a stay here unless they are arriving with a lot of extra luggage. Each room is clean and features an en-suite bathroom, double bed, kettle, flatscreen TV, radio, hairdryer and WiFi, and the rest of the hotel mirrors this emphasis on comfort and practicality with a TV room, 24 hour reception, breakfast buffet room, safe and lift access all available.
However aside from the great facilities on offer to each guest the main star of the hotel is its fantastic location, which opens up Paris to all travellers, from the most intrepid explorer to those who just want to experience the main sights. The Métro stations for both Champs de Mars Tour Eiffel and Bir-Hakeim are a short distance away from the main entrance, enabling city visitors to travel across Paris with ease and offering easy connections to slightly more out of the way attractions such as the Palace of Versailles or Disneyland Paris; however, given its central location the hotel is also a great base from which to explore the city by foot, beginning with the Eiffel Tower which is just around the corner and can even be seen from the street on which the hotel is situated (although it should be noted that it is unlikely that you will have a view of the Tower from your room, due to the height and positioning of the surrounding buildings).
With friendly, English-speaking staff who won’t make you feel small when you can’t articulate yourself in French, attractive and comfortable rooms and a five-star location, the Campanile Paris 15 is an excellent budget option for travellers who want to stay in the heart of the city rather than its cheaper outskirts.
