Charming, small hotel in the residential 15th arrondissement
In a quiet Left Bank district, Hotel Eden gives a taste of residential Paris, yet has easy access to sights. Paris-Expo is 20 minutes on foot or 2 stops from nearby Vaugirard Metro Station, which also has direct connections to the Musée d'Orsay, Champs-Elysées, and the Louvre.
Eiffel Tower: 25 minutes
Paris's ultimate icon, the Eiffel Tower is a pleasant 25-minute stroll across the Champ de Mars gardens. For a different kind of view, you can take the metro direct to the 1970s Tour Montparnasse, and admire city views from the 56th-floor observation deck or panoramic restaurant.
Breakfast on the patio
The hotel is full of character with retro touches and a Garden of Eden inspiration, from tulip lamps at reception to fern wallpaper in the breakfast room. It has an honesty bar, where you can help yourself to drinks, a sauna, a small gym, and a delightful flower-filled patio.
Cool 50s decor, free WiFi
The 37 air-conditioned guestrooms are decorated with fashionable 50s vintage touches in tables and chairs, and unusual wallpaper, lights, and tiles. All have free WiFi, iPod® docks, flat-screen TVs, and powerful rainfall showerheads, while top-floor rooms also have a balcony.
