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.

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.
