Historical Traveller Reviews of Ares Tour Eiffel Hotel

Many plusses, but some problems

from MamaAyinde
I actually loved this hotel for its spacious room, comfortable bathroom, close proximity to the Metro and a grocery (great for traveling with small kids) and fantastic location on a quiet street. However, continental breakfast (2 croissants and a hot drink) was overpriced at 9 euros (no discount for even little kids), and the elevator was out of order on 4 of the 6 days of our stay. When I suggested that there should be some accommodation for not having an elevator (as it was an essential part of my requirements when booking a room with small kids), I was told on the second (or third) day of our stay that they would find me another hotel, but that was all (i.e., take it or leave it). As I was traveling with two small children (ages 2 & 4), had already unpacked and had gotten acclimated, I didn't consider this a realistic option, especially for a 6-day stay. When I asked for a late check-out on our final day (2:30 pm, as opposed to noon), as a small concession, I was flatly and very curtly refused. Otherwise the service was very helpful. Finally, the cleaning staff was very, very good, but very, very noisy, talking loudly among themselves down the halls and up and down the stairs in the mornings. No problem if you're an early riser. In sum, many plusses, but I'm not sure it was worth the price.

Great Service, Lovely Hotel

from UncleTravellingDan
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Ares Hotel for 2 nights in June, 2006. I chose the hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed in the slightest.

We were surprised with a very large room (2 double beds!) with a beautiful juliet balcony overlooking a pleasant, quiet typically Parisian street. The bathroom was roomy and the power shower always had hot water.

The hotel is only about 10 mins walk to La Tour Eiffel and 1 minute walk from the La Motte Picquet Metro station which had excellent links to the Latin Quarter and Place de la Concorde.

The staff were extremely friendly, very helpful and seemed genuinely interested in helping us. The hotel was accessible 24 hours with a night security guard letting us in after 3am one morning.

The breakfast was well presented and delicious (Croissant, Pain au chocolat, yogurt, coffee, orange juice & bread/cheese) although if not included in the package we booked we would not have paid the 9 Euros - there are some lovely places to eat nearby.

Overall Ares Hotel comes highly recommended - if you are after a quiet location with great transport links, pleasant service and extremely comfortable beds and rooms you'd do well to find something more idealy suited.

Good Size and Very Clean Definately Recommend!

from Tiggs20
The hotel was round the corner from La Motte Picquet Grenelle Metro so very convenient.

The staff spoke good english and were helpful. The lift was small but could 2 people with travel cases in.

We had booked a four bed room and it was above the main entrance but the hotel is on a very quiet street away from the main road so we werent disturbed at all. The room was big enough for 4 people and the bathroom was the biggest Ive seen in a Paris hotel. It had a shower unit rather than a bath but was big enough to swing more than a cat! The decor was bright in yellow but the room was clean and the beds were comfy.
We didnt have breakfast as we chose to attend a local cafe.

All in all I would definately stay again as its location to the Eiffel Tower was great at night - near enough to wander down to look.

Glad we stayed

from EasterTraveler
My two daughters and I found Hotel Ares to be a wonderful stay. We stayed on a first floor triple.Enjoyed the fresh air from our french window that overlooked an unatractive inter court. Lots of space and storage. Clean large room with a big clean bathroom. The girls loved it. Easy access to the metro stop and close to grocery stores in a neighborhood of antique shops. While we were there last week they had an outdoor antique market with over 20 booths just two blocks away. Picked up some nice old postcards of Paris for 1e each. We did not use the hotel breakfast. We loved the neighborhood spots to enjoy outside dining in October and watching daily Parisian life.

The hotel staff and front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. I wish we had been able to spend more than 2 nights here. For a small hotel the two sitting rooms across from the front desk were a plus and a nice place to read a book or write post cards. I hope we can return to this hotel on our next visit.

Good Hotel for the Price

from Youhoo
Went to Paris for the weekend of Oct 1-2 and was a little anxious after seeing some of the reviews and never used a none chain hotel.
We had three adults, my wifeand myself and our adult daughter who is a student in London. We found this hotel to be just what we needed. We had three beds in a junior suite with room for all of us. Our room opened into an inner courtyard and any noise reverberated throughout but that was a mild inconvenience. Our room was at the end of a hall so we did not hear anything from other rooms or the hallways.
The location is great, there is a metro stop just minutes away, and plenty of restaurants around the corner.
There is also a superb farmers market on Sunday morning.
The staff was most courteous even though we spoke little to no French.
I can recommend this hotel without reservation.

Quite happy with Hotel Ares

from fotogrrrl
We had a good stay at this hotel. I had worried whether it would be too far from central Paris, and if the room and bed would be big enough for me and my husband (It was. He's 6'5", a little over 200 lbs., I'm 5'2"). I'd read that Hotel Ares' rooms have a little more room than most Parisian hotels, not including the four stars and above. The room was small, but roomy enough for both of us. We had a room on the first floor, known as the second floor to Americans. The key was a little tricky to figure at first, and you have to also use the key from inside to lock and unlock the door.

I'm not sure about the other rooms in the hotel, but ours was quite pleasant and charming. Ours was a pretty powder blue. Inspection of the modern bathroom was satisfactory; except for some faint mildew stains on the shower curtain, I was satisfied. The hair dryer was a nice thing to have, though it reminded me a small, wall-mounted vacuum cleaner. It worked well enough. To shut it off just replace it back onto the unit. They also have a small amenities kit which includes two small soaps, cotton pads and swabs, shoe polishing cloths, shower caps, and a shampoo/body wash gel.

The weather was mild during our stay in late September so there was no need to use the small electric fan that sat on the desk. When we wanted fresh air we opened the french door-like windows. Fortunately, since it's not a busy thoroughfare, noise wasn't much of a problem, except when the garbage trucks came by or if you're a light sleeper. The walls aren't paperthin, but you can hear noise from the hall and adjoining rooms.

As for storage, there was no drawer on the table, but there were two small closets, maybe about 1-2 feet wide, on each side of our double bed, and small built-in niches within arms reach, handy for a book or alarm clock (not provided). The bed was firm and the pillows rather flat, so if fluffy pillows are important to you then you'll have to improvise.

There was also a small minibar and television with satellite channels.

The staff was friendly and very courteous, and someone is always at the desk even if you get in late at night. For safety, you leave the key with them whenever you leave the hotel and ask for it when you return, which I liked. The staff spoke English, which was helpful since most of the French I learned back in high school has been forgotten.

Location was very good: very close to the La Motte-Picquet metro nearest Avenues Grenelle and de la Motte Picquet. It only takes two metro lines, 4 and 8, to reach from Gare du Nord. It's in a more residential area, which is nice if you want to blend in a little more with the locals, yet close enough to plenty of eateries and stores. And only a 10-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower (by the way, go see it at night, it looks amazing).

We have in the past relied on the opinions posted on Tripadvisor for hotels in Dominican Republic, Las Vegas, G/Canyon and Los Angeles. Thankfully ALL have been excellent hotels as recommended. So we obviously looked on Tripadvisor for an hotel in Paris. We can honestly say that we wish we hadn't. I'm not sure if the people who posted the earlier reviews stayed at the same hotel as we did!
I've heard that the hotel rooms in Paris are small but I didn't realise how small they can be! The bedroom was a double with only just enough room for what looked like a rather small and very hard and uncomfortable double bed. There was very little storage for any clothes for our 4 night stay. The room although clean had a large stain in the carpet and looked as if it hadn't been painted for at least 5 years. The bathroom was clean and although small proved adequate, with plenty of hot water on tap at all times of the day.
There were no windows in the room just a large set of French doors that we had to leave open as it was in the mid 80's during our stay. Outside was noisy at times, but I guess that applies to many hotels in Paris. Thankfully the hotel provided us with a large fan that kept the room temperature to a bearable level. The walls appeared paper thin, but thankfully people around us seemed to share our waking/bed times. The brakfast was well worth the extra cost being a typical continental affair served at your table in a small brakfast room.
The hotel is a good 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and only a few minutes walk away from a well connected Metro station. The staff were generally hepful and reasonably friendly. Overall we would say that the hotel was no more than adequate. I find it hard to believe that there aren't other better hotels in Paris at the same and probably cheaper price.
My advice is to carry on searching Tripadvisor for another hotel.

Good location and nothing more

from Vladaros
We spent 4 nights in this hotel in a double room, and I can say that the room is relatively small but fairly clean. The bath room was just functional. The rooms (at least the ones at the first floor) are extremely noisy and uncomfortable.
People with in wheelchairs or with mobility difficulties forget this hotel; to access the small elevator (in all floors) you have to climb a 4-5 steps narrow stairway.
A good thing about this hotel is the location, situated at 5 minutes walk from "Champ de mars", and 10 minutes from the Eiffel tower. There is a subway station close the hotel (1 minute walk) with direct lines to the Triumph arch and to the Notre Dame "area". The Hotel area has several coffee shops and restaurants, supermarkets and a pharmacy.
The Hotel is not cheep considering the alternatives nearby.

Great hotel, great location!

from Monks-in-Miami
Our family of four stayed here for five days in early June. This is a very quaint hotel with very spacious quad rooms (two double beds, desk, tv, mini-bar) and a big bathroom (shower, toiletries, hairdryer, and all the amenities of a larger hotel). The staff was very helpful and friendly, from the time of our first email to check-out. The elevator was tiny, so be prepared to take multiple trips with your luggage, or to go up the stairs. The kids enjoyed running up and down the five flights of stairs!!

The location is great: just a five minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and the Champs de Mer, 10-minutes to Rue Cler, two metro stations within a five-minute walk, and multiple bakeries and cafes. A very good continental breakfast is also available at the hotel.

In addition to this, the price was very reasonable: 150 Euros a night. We would definitely stay here again.

est Magnifique

from A TripAdvisor Member
Words fail me as I relate the absolutely wonderful time and accomodations that my wife and I enjoyed during our 7 day stay at the Hotel Ares Tour Eiffel. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and were filled with excitement like two children. Our experience began with emails that we sent to the hotel asking questions about various things in Paris and about the hotel weeks before our arrival. The hotel personnel were so kind in answering back each and every question that we had. Upon arrival, Isabelle was a beautiful smiling face that assured us we had made the correct decision about our lodging. We arrived very early on Monday morning and were so pleased to have our luggage stored for us until later in the day when we could check in our room. The room itself was beautiful, large, very clean and generously supplied. The beds were very comfortable and the bath facilities were very accomodating. Even though we were there in late July the evening temperatures were very comfortable with our large room windows opened wide for a great breeze. Isabelle, Severiene and Phillip were so, so very accomodating in helping us plan additional activities and make reservations upon Bateau Mouche for our 30th wedding anniversary celebration cruise. The hotel location is perfect in that you are really in a French neighborhood and enjoy the sounds and sights that most visitors to Paris might miss. It is close to all of the buses and metro as well as the Eiffel Tower that my wife and I used as a star in keeping our directions straight during our daily trips out into the city. We felt very safe and secure in this neighborhood and absolutely will stay at Hotel Ares Tour Eiffel again for our next trip to Paris!

Top Local Tips for Paris

use a metro its cheap and easy to get around just like london tube stations.

The Louvre If you only want to see the Mona Lisa then try to time your visit for a Wednesday or Friday evening after 6pm when the entry price for Adults drops by 3 Euros.

Charles De Gaulle Take the right time to plan your transfer to CDG, traffic is terrifing
