Many plusses, but some problemsfrom MamaAyinde
Great Service, Lovely Hotelfrom UncleTravellingDan
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 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 stayedfrom EasterTraveler
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 Pricefrom Youhoo
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 Aresfrom fotogrrrl
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).
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 morefrom Vladaros
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
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.

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
