My husband and I were very pleased with our stay at the Hilton Paris. We loved its convenient location! The hotel is situated right across the street from the Eiffel Tower and is in close proximity to other major attractions. We also had quick and easy access to the Metro and RER, so venturing out was no problem. There were many nearby restaurants to choose from. The ones we tried had tasty entrees, delicious homemade desserts and friendly waitstaff. Our hotel room was clean, comfortable (we loved the down comforter and pillows) and contemporary with a nice partial view of the Eiffel Tower from the large windows. We didn't even have to upgrade to a suite to get this great view! We also appreciated all of the little extras the hotel provided, like the notecards informing us of the next day's weather and the chocolate truffles we received every evening. The cleaning staff was on point and the front desk staff and concierge were pleasant, courteous and helpful. The fine quality of service and accommodations we received added to our wonderful overall experience in Paris. We would definitely stay at Hilton Paris again!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel Hotel

Would love to stay at Hilton Paris again

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at Hilton Paris in July 2004 for four nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. The location is superb. Rooms were spacious with very nice view (Eiffel tower). Earlier, we had stayed for ten days in the Montparnasse area, but then decided to move near Eiffel tower to explore other areas. We read about Hilton Paris in a guide book and walked in without prior booking. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The concierge was very helpful in informing us about various events, shows etc. taking place in the city. We went for lovely walks in the peaceful and green neighbourhood. I loved coming back to our hotel at night after all the sightseeing and shopping. Breakfast was pretty good- the Hot chocolate and warm croissants were absolutely a treat! We would love to stay there again and we recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a classy and relaxing stay in Paris.

Blah

The hotel is very dumpy. I only stayed b/c i was able to use my hilton points. I wouldn't stay there again.

Anywhere else

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very overprized. The building is unattractive, showing signs of ageing. Rooms are relatively small for this category and of boring funiture. The Tour Eiffel is close, but it is the ugliest building if the whole Paris. The bar is dirty and stinky. The only good point was the breakfast.

Just Wonderful

from BruinGirl21478
We stayed at this hotel in May 2004 and just loved it. The location was so neat---our room's balcony looked over the eiffel tower. It was like a dream. The rooms were clean and well decorated and the linens were very upscale. I would recommend highly upgrading to the executive floor---each day they have a wonderful breakfast-- fresh breads, croissants, meats, yogurts, cheeses and specialty coffees that would easily cost $10 pp in a restaurant--plus there are tables overlooking the eiffel and the seine on a little outside balcony. In addition, to the great concierge service you receive, you also get a wonderful little cocktail hour that is complimentary and includes free sodas and alcohol (it really adds up when you're a diet coke addict and they charge 4 EU a bottle). It was really worth the extra money. Also, while you are a ways from Champs elysees, I found that I liked it better than being so close. Even though it's the Eiffel area, it feels so much less touristy that the Disney store/Gap/Movie theater infested Champs. Overall quite lovely.

Absolutely wonderful

from mduni
My family of four stayed at the Paris Hilton over the Thanksgiving holidays, and I have to say that I was so excited about our suite, the personnel and the hotel itself. We arrived (jet lagged) were whisked to our floor to check in and were shown to our room immediately (this was at 11:00 in the morning. We booked suite 1137 that overlooked the Eiffel Tower. Not only did the room overlook the tower, but our huge balcony did as well. My husband and I and our two kids went to bed each night laying there gazing at the Eiffel. The suite was huge even by American standards, it had not one but two bathrooms. More than ample luggage space, we even had a changing room off of the Master bedroom. We had access to the Executive Lounge that always offered some type of snacks and drinks (very good cappucino) my teenagers loved it. But, the best thing about the Executive Suite was the concierge type of service we received from the staff, all of which were very nice. Many thanks to Marianna. She was wonderful, she was always very willing to help with questions, directions and just general info. She didn't mind our limited French, spoke excellent English and was always welcoming after a long day of sightseeing or a wonderful nights sleep. The beds were extremely comfortable and sheets very nice. I cannot say enough about this suite. If you get the chance, spend the extra money and book 1137. Made a much anticipated trip to France the trip of a lifetime. It also made our hotel in England pale in comparison. As we went there after Paris.

Great for Bastille day celebration

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were fortunate to stay in deluxe accomodations and tried to move to the executive level, but due to the time of year (July), the hotel was quite full. The employees were very welcoming and accomodative of our needs. Concierge was absolutely great and we found a wonderful local seafood restaurant "La Shaloop" (sic), which was recommended to us.

We experienced one of the most spectacular fireworks displays from our room, in celebration of Bastille Day. The Eiffel tower is lighted during the evening and every night we were entertained by the artistic display.

Visiting the city from this location is very easy, by cab, bus or metro.

Fantastic views

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is worth visiting just for the location and view alone, it is fantastic! Looking out of our hotel window to the Eiffel Tower at night was perfect.

We spent 2 nights here in September 2004, booking at the last minute we got a room on the executive floor, which I would recommend to anyone. The club lounge had its own balcony where you could take your snacks and drinks and watch the world go by, and in the evening the hourly illluminations of the eiffel tower. The snacks and drinks in the Executive lounge made it excellent value for money, however both stopped at 10.30pm, which was disappointing.

We also ate in the hotel restaurant and have no complaints about that either. It is also easily accessable by public transport with the train station being a 2 minute walk away. All in all this hotel is worth a visit.

Look elsewhere

from travelintheroadgirl
If you are looking to stay in Paris this may not be the hotel for you. We have traveled extensively through Europe and Asia and this was a bit of a dissapointment. Yes, it states that it is a 4 star property but I would say more like a 2-3 star. The rooms were in desperate need of renovation. The beds were very hard and the furniture needed updating. To be fair, we did not stay in a King deluxe but opted for a regular room - run of the house. One would think that the quality of rooms would be equal, that being furnishings, bed quality etc. The extras for upgrading would be view, bed size, larger room space. So we decided to accept the run of the house room. When we checked in the room was dingy, in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint, peeling caulking around the tub and very tired looking furniture. If we had booked a 1-2 star then I would be satisfied with the room. We asked the front desk to upgrade but to no avail the hotel was sold out. They did however moved us to at least a view room. We decided to stay and make the best of our vacation. How much time do you really spend in your hotel room. I would suggest if you have your heart set on this hotel then book a deluxe room with view. That would make it worthwhile to pay the hefty tariff at this hotel. Everything else was pleasant enough. The staff is truly helpful and all speak perfect English. The location was great as it was located 1 block away from the RER and the subway -Bir Haikim. The restaurants were within walking distance 4-5 blocks. And of course, it was wonderful to see the Tower lit up at night lying in our bed. We chose this property based on reviews on this website, in all it was ok. I would definitely choose the deluxe rooms though. Do not think that all things are equal. One more thing, don't make the mistake that we made. We made a local phone call, we read the hotel info book stating its charges on phone call. The rate was 0-15 mins = .50 euro. We assumed that it meant for one phonecall of 0-15 mins the charge was only .50 euro as long as it did not exceed 15 mins. NOT SO! It means .50 euro per minute. Needless to say, we did not make that mistake again.

Loved the free champagne!!

from woodhurst
Stayed in this hotel for the second time in the last 2 days. Location is wonderful, unbeatable perhaps. When you know your hotel is next to the tower it also helps when you are out and about and need your bearings!

When I last stayed here I thought rooms were "tired". This time had executive room on floor 10 where access to lounge with free drinks and snacks are available. This lounge is quite small and snacks ae just that - maybe a bread roll and a few small bits of salad and small cakes, but drinks were fine with constant champagne that my girlfriend and I made great use of. It was very quiet in the lounge and being small when one person began smoking a huge cigar it made the whole room smell in seconds!

The staff were really efficient, spoke superb english and the front desk were just so helpful it was untrue. Nothing was too much trouble and before setting out for anywhere it was great to check in with them who would always have suggestions for "Whilst you are there why not try this place" and tips for the taxi and where to find a return.

The room was smaller than I expected but what a view! You can actually hear people on the lower deck of the tower if the wind is in the right direction - amazing!

To be fair I would be upset writing a review which stated anything else as the room cost a fortune! Cheap is one word that does not come to this hotel.

Great Hotel, Great View of the Eiffel Tower

from RonANorthCarolina
My wife and I chose this hotel after initially booking a more traditional "charming French" establishment. We chickened out on that one and chose the more familiar Hilton brand instead when we began reading reviews suggesting that our original selection was undergoing charm-robbing construction.
As it turns out, we made a great choice. The Hilton at the Eiffel Tower is a wonderful place that provides the best of American and French features. We stayed there for four nights in late May of 2004 and couldn't have been happier. The cost--$340 (280 Euros)--was not low by American standards but was pretty reasonable on the Parisian economy considering what we got. Aside from the king-size bed, we got an amazingly large, tastefully deocrated, well maintained room with a balcony and a close-up view of the nearby Eiffel Tower. The room was quiet, comfortable and pleasant. The modern bathroom, tiled all around from floor to ceiling, was especially nice.
This is a very nice hotel and don't let the xenophobes from the USA who cringe at anything costing more than $60 a night convince you otherwise.
The staff was unfailingly friendly and polite. The conceirge desk was especially helpful. The location was wonderful. From the hotel we walked easily to Luxembourg Gardens and on to the Latin Quarter for dinner. On a more ambitious day, we walked along the nearby Seine river to the Louvre and on to the Arc de Triomphe. The walk was wonderful though, my wife and I, ages 58 and 59 respectively, were pretty pooped at the end.
The hotel is also very near a boarding spot for Seine cruises. We chose a one-hour one just as darkness fell and it was quite nice.
The Eiffel Tower towers over the hotel and is a beehive of tourist activity, albeit not a distracting or annoying one. There are many pleasant sidewalk cafes in the general area and the food and ambience at all that we sampled were fantastic. The hotel has a ground level terrace bar with a great view of the Eiffel Tower. At night, be sure to stick around long enough to see the sparkle lights fire up on the Eiffel for ten minutes each hour on the hour.
The hotel indeed provides a big, varied "American breakfast" but frankly it isn't worth the cost (about $30 per person). A better choice is to venture to one of the nearby cafes for coffee and pastry or even an "American style" breakfast there. It is much less expensive and the atmosphere is a lot better.
In short, we would return to this hotel without hesitation. We've already recommended it to our adult kids. Although staying in a small "charming" traditional French hotel is undoubtedly a worthwhile adventure to be had, there is much to be said for finding a hotel that takes all the hassle out of the lodging part of a trip to Paris. It frees the mind and the body to truly enjoy a great and beautiful city.

Top Local Tips for Paris

General helpful info Carry you money and important papers in a money belt. All major cities have a pic pocket problem especially around the Eiffel Tower.Buy a ticket for the Paris hop on hop off bus. Great way to see all of Paris, drivers very helpful. Brassiere 95 four blocks from Hilton Paris very good food, wonderful french onion soup and great grilled lamb chops Main course average 17 Euros.

Live and Learn If you are touring Paris, the hop on Hop off bus is a waste. Try to book a comprehensive tour like Cityrama, stay away from isango.com. Their tour was okay, but the included lunch was horrid! The two day museum pass was nice. If I had to do it over again, I would take the public metro bus, the hop on hop off bus is okay because you do see all the sites with an audio explanation, however, this can take forever because traffic is so heavy and you want to be able to stroll the streets of Paris! Several restaurants are a must: L' Escargot www.escargot-montorgueil.com, Restaurant De La Tour 6 Rue Desaix Paris 75015. Of course Cafe La Flore in St. Germain is a must.

Best location The most lively nightime (clubs, bars, restaurants) parts of paris are the Bastille area, saint paul and latin quarter all within in close proximaty of one another in the 1st arrondismant. Also alcohol is very expensive in paris - between 7- 10 euro for a pint of lager and the same for sprits with mixers. Many bars offer happy hours between 6 pm and 9pm so take full advantage.
