Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel

I chose this location thinking it would be very romantic. Of course you can’t go wrong with a Mercure property. They are clean, usually very modern and never once have had a problem with the service. After seventeen hours in the air and arriving at 7am I was ready to get my body moving and off load my luggage. As always the Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel took my bags and put them in a safe place until my room was ready. So off to grab a Parisian croissant and coffee before heading out to explore the city.

We got back around 2pm and our room was ready for us. Although we didn’t pay for an Eiffel Tower view the room was still very nice and quiet. Inside was a small minibar which we use to keep our water cold for the next day. The showers were immaculate and the bathrooms had nice decor in them and included amenities. The room had a very comfy bed, night tables with clock, TV, a Nespresso machine, and they had free WiFi.

A little more about the Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel

The breakfast was a little better continental breakfast than the norm. You have the choice of bacon, croissants, pancakes and eggs. They also have assorted French pastries and the coffee was good. It’s unusual that we were able to eat breakfast since my husband is an early riser and out the door before the sun comes up. Breakfast starts early here. I

If you are married to someone who can get by on 5 hours sleep a night, not to worry, there are plenty of nice restaurants and cafe’s nearby. There is a supermarket just around the corner so you can stock up on essentials for a decent price.

The location was good a short walk to the Eiffel Tower and you really have a great view from the hotel. It’s also close to the Trocadero and Metro is just a minute or two away. But being walkers we very rarely use the Metro and prefer to use the Velib Bicycle system instead.

So what did we think about the hotel?

I give this hotel a huge thumbs up and would recommend it to anyone looking for comfort and good service in Paris.

  1. Last time I went to Paris I wen’t for a boutique hotel and stayed at my friends place. Staying the whole time at a hotel can be quite expensive!

      Staying at a friends place would be great! You can live like a local and they probably knew places to see and restaurants the normal tourist would miss.

  2. The Eiffel poster behind the bed…my fave too! We had shortlisted this one, but chose a Best Western property instead. Highly regret it.

      That was a definite perk having the Eiffel poster! That’s too bad about the BW, they are usually nice properties too.

  3. The Mecure is always a great place to stay no matter where you are in the world! That must have been ideal being so close to the Eiffel Tower that it probably didn’t even matter not having a Tower view from your room anyway!

      Mercure’s are good, you can always count on a very clean modern hotel. You are so right, the view didn’t matter to us, we are never in our room except to sleep when in Paris! 🙂

  4. Good to know where to stay. We were were unable to stay in Paris when were in France a couple of months ago, but we do plan to go back so that we can see the sights and take in this city. All we saw of it was a rat infested bus “station” which in reality was just a big parking lot. I would love to see something more appealing.

      That’s terrible Rob, wouldn’t leave you with the greatest feeling that Paris is as great as it is. Definitely go back but stay away from that bus station! Also I really do like the area that the Mercure is in. Also love the Hotel Champs du Mars, its very cute and surrounded by good restaurants and shops and a 2 minute walk to the Metro. Which btw has not rats! 😉

  5. If I’m not mistaken, that hotel is in the 15th. It’s a quiet area, mostly residential. I imagine this hotel is a good choice if you don’t want to be surrounded by tourists, but also don’t want to stay in a flat.

    • twotravelfanatics@gmail.com

      Yes, you are correct Leah it is in the 15th Arrondissement and is less crowded than other areas in Paris. It’s only about a 5 minute walk to Champs du Mars with many good restaurants and cute local shops that have the real Parisian ambiance. And of course very close to the Eiffel Tower.

  6. Wow…looks luxurious. I am more of thrifty traveler and prefer hostels but going luxurious once in a while won’t hurt.

  7. Love the Eiffel Tower touch in the decor- definitely a nice detail for the Eiffel Tower loving visitors!

    • twotravelfanatics@gmail.com

      Couldn’t agree with you more it’s a nice touch. Would love to have something like that in my bedroom at home!

  8. Great photo tour! Mercure properties are always very nice. I’ll definitely keep this one in mind next time I’m in the City of Lights 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  9. This looks like a wonderful place to stay. Great location if you are near the Eiffel Tower. I always enjoy breakfast included, makes traveling so much simpler

  10. What a beauty room! How were the prices? We stayed farther out when we visited Paris to save some money, but sometimes the convenience of being right in the centre of things is worth it!
