My Paris Favouritefrom PatrizioYorkU
In any event, you can't beat the proximity of this hotel to many of the great sites of Paris, and it is also close to the Ecole Militaire Metro station. The rue Cler offers food and shopping from A to Z. This hotel is to be highly recommended. Contrary to other reviews I had no problem making reservations, nor did my brother who visited this past Christmas season.
Average hotel in quiet areafrom A TripAdvisor Member
Next time, we will probably stay somewhere a little more centrally located, even though you risk the chance of noise.
Great little hotel at a resonable pricefrom DowneyTraveler
The Hotel du Champ de Mars was the best value in all the hotels we stayed at. The room is small and the bathroom is tiny, but room is clean and comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance from the Eiffel Tower and the street market (restaurants, bakeries, chocolate store, shoe stores, wine store, cheese store, etc.) is right there. The metro and bus stations are right there as well.
For those of you complaining that you cannot make a reservation, well too bad. The hotel is small (only 25 rooms or so) and the demand is high. I do think the owner should invest in an online booking service, so he doesn't have to spend all his time rejecting reservation requests.
I've been to Paris 3 times and the probability of getting rude service in Paris is very high compared to other places. I want to make it clear that I have encountered nice people in Paris, but without a doubt you will encounter rude service in Paris. In my opinion, the hotel management is not too rude but they are not exactly charming.

Top Local Tips for Paris
Le Menu vs. La Carte Eating alone at brasseries and bistros I learned the distinction between "Le Menu" and "La Carte". "La Carte" is the comprehensive printed list of dishes, with the price for each. It can quickly add up to 50 Euros. "Le Menu" is written in chalk on a blackboard: you can select two or three dishes at a fixed price for the lot: e.g. entree (1st course) + plat (main course) + desert. At one place I saw the waiter obligingly carry the blackboard over to the table. Being alone I found a bottle of wine too much, and even a half bottle; so I took to ordering a 1/4 bottle size "pichet" (pitcher). As I fine-tuned this strategy my dining bills dropped under 20 Euros (wine included + service compris) without any noticeble compromise in quality and variety.
Getting good service The French have a different conception of public and private space to a lot of western countries - going into a shop and ignoring the sales person as you start browsing is equivalent to walking into someone's home in your own country and starting to read books off their bookshelf without saying hello, ie. it's considered extremely rude. Make an effort to say "bonjour" to the salespeople whenver you walk in and you will get MUCH better service!
Vacationing in Paris If you've been to Paris, like I had been, during high season and were disappointed that it was so crowded and sites were hard to visit or closed, definitely consider going in the winter. There are literally no lines for anything and everything is open. Buy the Museum Pass ahead of time and skip the ticket line. You'll walk right in to the Louvre and immediately get 10 feet away from the Mona Lisa, and any other art in any other site as well. Restaurants are now non smoking and not crowded. Outdoor seating is heated and people watching is at its best. Pick pockets were few and far between, and the Parisians were lovely. I tried to speak French, and they graciously switched to English. Make the attempt and you'll be highly rewarded.
