I was very happy with this hotel, having stayed in a few different ones over my time in Paris.
Unique Quality: The hotel is super close to the eiffel tower, and at 65 euro a night is excellent value. The hotel was definitely as good as the 3.5 star place I stayed in the night before. The beds are firm (an absolute must). The staff were both polite and helpful - one even took me for a drive around Paris after he finished work, to show me the sights!
There is no air conditioning or fancy overheads, but it is a pleasant and clean place to stay. They do have a machine in the foyer with items such as combs, toothbrushes etc for sale. The double rooms are by no means huge in size, but then, so far my experience in Paris is that none are! The single rooms are truly tiny, so I would recommend lashing out on a double even if you are alone.
There is a narrow staircase, but also a small elevator. Breakfast is typical; bread and jams, tea and coffee.
There is a cybercafe around the corner, some very good restaurants too, and a late night shop as well. Location gets a definite 10 out of 10; you can't get much closer to the Eiffel than this! The street is quite quiet which is also a big plus over many of the other hotels in Paris.
Directions: Catch the train to station "Ecole Militaire" it is less than 5 minutes walk from there.
Do be warned that It can be a little difficult to find the place if you don' t have a proper map because the little free tourist maps dont show rue de Gros Caillou.
