France Eiffel Hotel, 8 Rue St Charles, Paris, 75015
Situated on the Left Bank of the city within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower (you can actually see its top spire reaching up across the street when you step outside the main entrance), the France Eiffel Hotel is a budget option that manages to deliver both in terms of location and comfort. It is notoriously difficult to find quality budget accommodation in Paris, with the archetypal cheap Paris hotel consisting of rooms the size of a wardrobe and decor fresh from the 1970s! The France Eiffel proves that the idea of finding somewhere decent to stay for an affordable price is not an impossible dream, with clean and attractive rooms of varying sizes available in the centre of Europe’s best-looking city for a competitive price.
The France Eiffel Hotel is located a few minutes away by foot from both Bir-Hakeim and Champs de Mars Tour Eiffel Métro stations, connecting the area to the rest of the city and giving it easy access to both the RER and the Métro. Additionally, the Eiffel Tower is practically on the doorstep of the hotel, meaning that you can take time to enjoy the majesty of the imposing structure both in daylight and at night, when a sparkling electric display lights up the Tower against the darkened sky. The river Seine is also only three blocks away, allowing you to have a stroll along its banks to view the Right Bank of Paris.
Location aside, the France Eiffel Hotel is also notable for its facilities and rooms. All 37 guestrooms have an en suite bathroom and are warm, stylish and comfortable as well as scrupulously clean, and although they are undeniably ‘city-size’ rooms are more spacious than those in a lot of other budget hotels in the area. The hotel has a walled courtyard, public WiFi access areas, a buffet breakfast room and 24 hour reception, and the staff are willing to help you organise tours around Paris if you so wish. For an extra fee you can also arrange parking with the hotel for the duration of your stay, should you be daredevil enough to attempt driving around Paris’ legendarily crowded streets!
