Moderately priced stay near the Eiffel Tower
The capital of France is simply the most visited city in the world. According to a survey conducted by the firm Global Market Insite to 14,000 people, Paris is ranked No. 1 from 60 cities in terms of beauty and dynamism, but falls into the classification when it comes to assessing the quality of the hospitality and the prices. It is real fact, it’s a city where the cost of living is very high, especially in districts where the monuments, restaurants, museums and large stores are everywhere.
My focus is now on the Eiffel Tower. After the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, this is the most visited tourist site, with 6.7 million unique visitors in 2010. Yet the Eiffel Tower was not always in the heart of Parisians. Indeed, the tower, which opened its doors in 1889 for the Exposition Universelle, did not fuel the curiosity of visitors for very long. In 1901 the visits dropped so much that some even suggested the idea of destroying what will later become the emblem of Paris.
Today the neighborhood of the Eiffel Tower is a real gold mine for tourism. How many times the words “hotel near the Eiffel Tower” were typed into the Google search box! Some hotels take the opportunity to charge extra, and many tourists fall for it.
That’s when I intervene! After taking advice, researching, and scouring the reviews from former clients, I have found 2 hotels near the Eiffel tower, which I think are good values for money.
Hotel Valadon Colors : This hotel offers spacious rooms, and even a family cottage which can accommodate up to 6 people! Plus, the Valadon has just been redecorated, the decor is modern and contemporary, and the rates are really reasonable, for such a location. Hotel Valadon Colors, 16, rue Valadon, 75007 – Paris. From 115€/night.
Hotel Palais Bourbon : The Palais Bourbon is located close to the Champs de Mars, and near the Orsay museum. It has different kinds of rooms, from single to quadruple. The decor is welcoming, with wooden furnitures and light colors, and it’s really moderately priced! Hotel du Palais Bourbon, 49, rue de Bourgogne, 75007 – Paris. From 90€/night.
