    A Quiet Safe Convenient Location


    A well-located hotel in Paris is a comfort and a luxury. Although getting around Paris by metro and bus is easy, it is better if you are in an area where you can safely wander around and enjoy local restaurants (recommended by the attentive and friendly staff). The immediate neighborhood is composed of up-scale early 20C condominiums. The Eiffel tower and Champ de Mars are just 1-3 blocks away. There is an "in-Paris" type supermarket around the corner at the Av. La Motte-Picquet (handy for all needs and right next to the entrance to the Metro). We have stayed there several times. Another advantage: if you plan to use a car to tour France, there is a large pick-up and drop-off garage for most vendors under the Esplanade des Invalides just a few blocks away; it is easy to quickly enter Paris and be there with a minimum of low-traffic driving and easy luggage delivery to or from the hotel. Its appointments are what you would expect a 3* hotel to have.

    Directions: (Line 8) Ecole Militaire station; 1 block to Champ de Mars.

    Simple Elegance


    I was very impressed with the room and the service offered here considering the relative inexpensive price in such a great location. The staff here is very friendly and always there to help with anything, from recommending the closest good restaurants to serving coffee at all hours of the day and night in the lounge. The coffee was a highlight of the hotel actually, at 3 euros for about 2 cups, its much cheaper than any of the local cafes, and tastes excellent as well. The big breakfast here, however, was 10 euros, and definitely not worth it. You could get a few croissants and jelly for about half that, but you'd better go out for a really good breakfast.

    The rooms are above average size compared to many European hotels and the bathroom is very spacious with two full sinks. The location cannot be any better. Just half a block from the Ecole Militaire metro station and 3 blocks from the Eiffel Tower. There are dozens of good restaurants of all types within a few blocks-the cheapest being the Vietimese/Chinese restaurants, which are actually very good. The beds were very comfortable, but they have these funny cylindar-shaped pillows that are too small for most people, so make sure you have normal pillows in the closet.

    Unique Quality: The round-the-clock coffee was always a plus, and the lounge area was unique and decorated with what I am guessing is 18th century furniture and artwork-not too fancy but still elegant and tasteful.

Comfortable Accommodations for family of four at Hotel Bourdonnais

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I stayed here with our two children (11 and 8 years old) during March of this year. It was our first trip to Paris, and we made the rookie mistake of thinking we could "hang out" until our room was ready at 2, after having arrived at 7 that morning. We passed a couple of frigid hours exploring the neighborhood and then dozed in the hotel's lobby until noon. The hotel was very good about speeding up the cleaning process so that we could get into our room earlier than the customary check-in. The room was adequately sized, with a lovely bathroom with shower and w.c. in a separate room. Bedding was comfortable (especially the coverlets we found in the closet.) We replaced neck roll pillows with standard American ones (could have used another two). Service was indifferent -- neither especially chilly nor warm. The breakfast, though a bit on the expensive side, was lovely. Neighborhood (Rue Cler area) was wonderful. Just wish there was more room to eat a picnic lunch -- two chairs and a tiny desk -- made it difficult to bring goodies back to the room. Would stay again.

Name of tiny restaurant?

by JRLankford about Around the corner from Hotel La Bourdonnais

A really tiny French restaurant with fabulous food in walking distance of La Bourdonnais hotel in Paris. Leaving the hotel you turn right, go to the corner, turn right again then left at the next street, I believe. The exterior has glass windows and perhaps green wooden trim and it might be called Chez something. They have only a very few offerings per meal but each is wonderful. Can't remember the name. I was last there in 2001. Whatever they cook.

Explore the Musee de l'Armee

by hquittner

Since our hotel (La Bourdonnais-See Hotel Tip) was in easy walking distance of the Invalides, we decided to take our 10 yr old grandson to the Dome Church and the Museum. Having spent part of my career as a coroner's pathologist and having been spared a beach-head invasion by Hiroshima, I have an extreme distaste for methods of human destruction, but we went. To our child, Napoleon was not yet at the level of George Washington. His schooling on methods of warfare had not yet begun (the next year at Williamsburg he could lecture on flint-lock mechanisms). He enjoyed the knights and their armor and climbed on the ancient cannons in the courtyard (timidly imitating the French kids). Conclusion: know your child's previous exposure to weaponry and war before you go. There are collections from every military period.

Home in the *7e

by shrimp56 about VBRO apartment #9528 -- NOT RECOMMENDED

The second time I stayed here the drain in the tub did not work and there were dust bunnies under the bed. I heard from a later renter that things had only gotten worse. So I no longer recommend this apartment. Which is too bad, because properly maintained this apartment would be a gem.
A friend invited me to share this apartment with her and her mother last October [2005]. It was bit tight for 3, but it worked out just fine. The apartment is in a secured building on Ave de la Bourdonnais. There is both a numeric pad as well as several keys to use on the way in. I did feel very safe here. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very light.
It was my first time in an apartment and I'm still weighing the pluses and minuses. On the plus side you can have your coffee and breakfast without having to face the world. And cheaper than at a hotel or cafe. Also on the plus side is the sense of privacy. On the minus side you make the bed and clean up!
The price was excellent for the quality of the apartment and the neighborhood.

Very convenient Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just got back from spending 3 nights at this Hotel. Location was great. There were four of us in our room and it was tidy and well-kept, although a bit narrow. I' ll surely come back again.

Seemed a little shabby

by TripAdvisor Member kylijia

We stayed in this hotel, but we not very impressed. The door to the bathroom didn't fit snug and the interior seemed worn and shabby.

It was located near the Eiffel Tower and we did feel safe in the area. There was a deposit of 80.00 euro to use the room safe, which I felt was crazy.

Probably wouldn't stay here again.


by A TripAdvisor Member

myself and three friends stayed in Paris for five days and loved the Hotel. The property is small, but great. the location is A+++ The hotel is just a five minute walk to the tower and many stores/cafes.

Nice hotel close to Eiffel Tower

by TripAdvisor Member anapapa

Our family of 4 adults stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The room was a little tight but manegeable. The bathroom though was very spaciuos for European hotels, bright and clean. The location is great in the 7th district, very close to Eiffel tower and close to Metro station. I recommend doing the Fat Bike Tour. The office is very close to the hotel.
The doors did not shout correctly but was not a big deal. The only problem was that the clerk at the hotel desk sent an international call to another room. However, I would stay here again.

Decisions, Decisions about hotels

by iluvtrvl

3 of us will travel in September to Paris. Which would be better, Hotel De La Bourdonnais near the Eiffel Tower or Hotel Central St. Germain? The latter is about $50 less per night, but the first one reads better on the web......our primary interests will be Louvre, Orsay, St. Chappelle and Notre Dame, with a stop at the Eiffel (can't come to Paris without a look at the Eiffel Tower, right?).

Re: Decisions, Decisions about hotels

by omisan

I'm not familiar with either hotel, but personally I would favor the St. Germain de Près area. It's closer to the points of interest you've listed - except the Eiffel Tower, of course, which would be one metro line away.

The area is probably more lively, with all the great little Latin Quarter shopfronts, bars, cafés, etc. It's also pretty much at the center of the city, so if there's anywhere else you want to go, you just radiate out! :)

Re: Re: Decisions, Decisions about hotels

by SmilesFromCanada

My choice would be the Hotel Central St. Germain.... this district is close to all your primary interests except the Eiffel Tower....which is just a short metro trip away. The St. Germain district has awesome food, great shopping, and wonderful walkable streets. You can take the metro to your primary interests or walk there easily, stopping to eat along the way. The biggest deciding factor for me would be the atmosphere.......
St. Germain is amazing.

St. Germain it is! Thanks a bunch for the helpful information!
