"A Very Friendly Staff at Hotel Ares Eiffel..."
The staff at the Ares was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The room was updated, clean and everything was in good order. I was by myself and didn't spend a lot of time in the room, it was perfect for me but some may have found it a little cramped. I'd say the room is probably about 10'x12' with a small entryway and a bathroom that is about 8' […] x 10' with a tub, shower and a double basin vanity. The location is convenient to shopping, cafe's, the metro, the Eiffel Tower and if you don't mind walking ta bit o many other tourist attractions. I would definitely stay there again.

Small, luxury, comfortable hotel. Staff is very friendly. Excellent location. 1 block from subway. 3 blocks from eiffel tower. Highly recommended :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Hotel EVER!"
We had a great time in Paris and Hotel Ares was one of the reasons. We had a great view of the Eiffel Tower from our room. Hotel was super clean & the staff was superb and it was so quit at night. The best hotel I have ever stayed. Thanks Hotel Ares, look forward to staying again soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very accomodating. Found room too small with little space to place luggage and bathro toiletries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Staff was great- friendly and helpful. Had some difficulty with the room AC which was never resolved. Breakfast was basic but costlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Can't swing a cat in the rooms"
I have never stayed in that small a hotel room!!! We could barely fit the luggage in the room with us. The decor is great and looks beautiful in the photos but the size of the room made it very inconvenient. The room became super hot over night, and between the sound of other hotel guests arriving back at 1:00 am and the sound of the trucks outside, […] we didn't sleep very well!

"Value wasn't there for price"
Upon check in, I presented my Expedia Elite card but it was immediately dismissed, it was almost laughable. Beautifully decorated small boutique hotel and rooms, however, this was the smallest room we have stayed at while visiting Paris. The toilet was in what appeared to be a small closet (no sink or bidet). Bed, sheets and bathroom were quite comfortable. Sadly, […] the walls are paper thin. We heard EVERYTHING –every text, phone call, chairs dragging on wood floors all around us, children playing outside early am (must be a school nearby.) Bed slippers and Hermes toiletries offered, although - no robe. Tiny closet. My only request from the front desk was for wash cloths. I was told that ‘they don’t use those things in Paris’ (not a necessary comment especially from an international hotel) but we ultimately did receive our cloths. Climate control was out of our control. Although we had a thermostat, our friends called down to ask about the air and were told that the hotel didn't offer air conditioning, since it was ‘winter.’ I think the hotel shuts down the units at night despite your setting – there was undoubtedly no air circulation at night. No door man or assistance with luggage. This is typically fine with me, however, on every floor, there are a few small spiraling steps before the elevator= small challenge. You need to navigate your luggage up the steps, into a small elevator. Not easy to hail a taxi and/or for taxi’s to locate the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Hotel Ares staff and facilities were wonderful! The staff was very gracious and helpful, the building and rooms were beautiful. We had a wonderful stay! The hotel is very conveniently located only a few blocks from the LaMotte Picquet Grenelle subway station where you can easily catch a subway and be anywhere within Paris in minutes. Near the hotel […] are a number of cafe's which offer wonderful dining options at reasonable prices. The hotel is also near a number of small grocery stores and fruit markets which give you the option of purchasing fresh fruit or other items you may need. On Wednesdays, there is an open air market near the subway that you can experience. We had a wonderful stay and would definately recommend the Hotel Ares to friends going to Paris!

"Great travel hotel"
First time to Paris and couldn't have had a better experience. The hotel was beautiful, comfortable and everything we had hoped forGenuine Expedia guest review
Gret lcation near the Eifeel Tower and the metro. the staff was very helpfull and friendly -- couldn't do enough to help. Staff has excellent Engish skills if that is a concern for you. Rates were very reasonable and we felt we got good value for the money. Because the hotel has gotten such excellent reviews, rooms are looking a little worn. Not much […] storage space to unpack --especially if you are on a lng trip. Bathrooms do not have much count3r space in comparison to american hotels so that presented challenges as well. Free use of a gym just around the corner, free wifi. for us, they kept two bags in storage while we went off for a 6 day bike trip and then came back to stay for another night. We would definitely go back again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location in a quiet area"
Stayed there for a week. It is located within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and some of the other sites. Surroundings are relatively quiet. Plenty of restaurants and groceries in the area. Room was clean. Bathroom clean with adequate hot water pressure. Small cupboard refrigerator not terribly functional. Reception doubles as Concierge. Daytime […] employees more knowledgeable and friendly. Incoming faxes/emails do not always reach the intended guest-especially if these arrive during nighttime. If you forget a personal item behind in your room-retrieval not guaranteed. No opinion on breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beware of sofa bed!"
We selected the rate choice on hotels.com for 3 adults. The triple accommodation included a king size bed and a twin size fold out sofa bed. The mattress was thin with springs visibly pushing through the surface. It curled up on it's own. Needless to say it was extremely uncomfortable. For $500 per night and a booking of a 3 person accommodation, I […] had fully expected a mattress that was far better than this. Otherwise the hotel was quiet and clean enough. It is about 3 blocks from the metro and a good 15-20 minute walk from the Eiffel tower, which cannot be seen from the hotel. Their concierge assistance is limited. The room was cold, but we were told the heat hadnt been turned on yet because the weather had recently changed. The front desk suggested that we "close our door" if we were cold. Seriously? One more note of caution, be sure to get detailed directions. The directions they sent us concluded with "walk to the hotel from the metro station". I wrongly inferred that the hotel would be visible from the station or at least easily findable. We walked for 45 minutes, asking 4 different people along the way for help, all sending us in the wrong direction. It is on a small street, not well know to even local business people, so was really hard to find. It seemed that the french didn't want to admit they didnt know where something was, but would prefer to point us in a direction and appear confident. Not easy with luggage.

"Hotel Ares Eiffel"
The staff was mostly super- very friendly and helpful-especially Julianna- but all were very nice. The lone exception was the lady who ran the breakfast room. She was not exactly a ray of sunshine and I'll leave it at that. There were three of us in our room and my chair that made into a bed was not very comfortable- but I got by okay. The bathroom […] was small but very modern and clean. The location is near the metro and several restaurants and only about a mile or so from the Eiffel Tower. Hotel guests get to work out in a nearby gym only a block away and the gym has good facilities including steam room. The hotel breakfast buffet is all-you-can-eat and drink for 18 Euros. Not the best I have had but considering the high prices in Paris, not a bad deal. They could improve the buffet with fresh cut fruit instead of the fruit in light syrup and the eggs could have been better. I realize that Paris is an expensive city so you have to take this into consideration to give a fair rating and I believe the hotel is decent for the money. The highlight of my experience was the friendly and helpful staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for us"
We stayed here with our 9-year old daughter, they had a cute little pull out for her all ready when we arrived. The rooms are beautiful & very clean. Small, but really charming boutique hotel. I would absolutely stay here again. The proximity to the Eiffle Tower is brilliant.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect Stay in Paris"
We stayed at Hotel Ares in August 2013 and had a wonderful stay. The staff were beyond reproach, always friend, helpful, informative and assistive. From check-in to check-out they helped us around Paris, knew the answer to all our questions and made getting around Paris a piece of cake. An Expedia Plus upgrade was available and we were in Room 702 on […] the top floor. The room was exquisitely presented with Versace tile, Hermes products (generously provided), and lovely view to the interior courtyard which looked quintessentially Parisian. A large soaking bath and rainwater shower were a pleasure after a long day of walking around. There is an eccentric and arty sitting area off the lobby with books, newspapers, magazines and a computer available for use. The location was perfect for us; a short walk to the Eifel Tower (15 minutes), and the La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle subway station is less than 5 minutes away with easy access to M6, M8, and M10. There is also a taxi/cab rank by the subway, along with a number of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour. Great staff, Great location, Great room - about everything you want from your hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel close to Eiffel Tower"
This hotel was in a nice location just a short distance walk from the Eiffel Tower. It was in a quiet neighborhood. It was also super close to the metro, Starbucks, Haagen daz, and eateries. We enjoyed this hotel and would stay there again. The room is small and would not accomodate a family but it suited my husband and I just fine.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very conveniet hotel near Eiffel Tower"
We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Ares in Paris. The people were so nice and helpful, the room elegant. This was the best shower we have ever had in Europe and the bathroom was large and very modern. The bed, which was a chair pulled out to a bed for my 23 year old son was not the most comfortable which is the only negative of the review. We were […] in a 3 person family room. I would definately stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location in Paris"
Great hotel right by the Eiffel tower and 2 min walk from the metro station. From the metro you can pretty much go to all the main sites you need to see in Paris very easily. Right next to the hotel there are a ton of restaurants and little shops. Also there is a starbucks right there by the metro which is convenient. The hotel itself is very small […] compared to a new hotel but it is expected for a hotel in Paris. The rooms are literately big enough for the bed and there is a bathroom that is it. You can fit a total of 3 shirts in the closet is absolutely tiny. Also the toilet is in a separate tiny room not connected to the main bathroom which is a tad weird since you have to go in a separate room to wash your hands. The room is furnished with nice higher end type furniture and a very comfortable bed but you could see a little wear on them. Overall its a great hotel for Paris but its defiantly not the cheapest option. I guess for the price I paid I expected more but then again I guess that is what I get for staying in Paris in July during the peak of the tourist season. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Eiffel and Restaurant and Shopping"
The staff was awesome!! The room was clean and for most part was very comfortable. The AC wasn't that great but we were there when very hot. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near Eiffel, althought you can't see it from the hotel. But it iswalking distance as well very close to many restaurants and shopping. We were there on their Holiday […] so was crowded around the Eiffel and restaurants but there was great Concerts and Fireworks which we could see from outside of the hotel. Again the staff was Fantastic!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful stay for a quick trip!"
We had just two days to experience Paris. But this hotel made our quick trip so lovely. We were surprised when the receptionist informed us that we arrived on a National Holiday and that there would be a firework show at the Eiffel Tower! What an amazing experience we were surprised with on our arrival. The hotel is just a few short blocks from the […] tower being visible and a really relatively short walk to actually get there. While we were in Paris we did do a tour of the Eiffel Tower, The Moulin Rouge Dinner Show and we did the Red Bus Hop On/Hop Off transportation. Unfortunately, we had decide to go to The Louvre on Tuesday to only realize when we arrived that it is closed on Tuesdays. It was our only mistake and disappointment of the trip. The hotel is located by many nice street side cafes and it is easy to walk to many destinations or use the public train (which we did use to get to Montmarte and The Louvre). The front desk was always helpful to give us pointers and directions to anything we needed. I would definitely choose to stay here again or recommend it to any one.

Very cute boutique Hotel. The room was small but very nice and clean. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. A/C, free wifi, and 4-5 English channels on the TV.

"Stylish boutique hotel"
Overall I rated excellent score because i loved the style, cleanliness and the bathroom was very modern with Versace tyles and Hermes shampoo but there are a few essential things missing like wash clothes, coffee maker, ironing board and dressers for your clothing (though there was a closet and non-alcoholic mini-bar).Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel is about 1mile from Eiffel Tower, convenient close to train station, friendly staff but dont deserve their prices. When we arrive door was closed, one woman that also runs reception did the bellboy work, no concierge, the installations no meet the price. Hermes Amenities, premium TV bang olufsen branded. they tried to show like a boutique hotel […] but they dont are, very uncomfortable elevator and stairs, no sound insulation, across the street is a school or day care so you can heard everything In conclusion this is just a Ok hotel, dont worthy the big bill Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The staff was wonderful: friendly, helpful and spoke English. They recommended the Paris Visit travel pass which served us well and saved us money. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We loved the rain shower and large absorbent towels. The bed was great and the curtains blocked the light which enabled us to sleep in when we wanted. The room service […] was a nice treat when we were too tired to go out. The last day we had breakfast in the hotel which was delicious.

"Easy access to must see sights"
This was a splendid hotel not far from the Eiffel Tower. It was an easy walk from most locations and just around the corner from several cafes and the metro. Most importantly was the staff. The hotel staff were friendly and quickly got to know our names. They always greeted us as if we were long lost friends and helped make our stay something magical. […] The rooms were always clean and tidy for us when we returned from our daily outings and the price was good compared to other hotels in the area. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

"Excellent hotel! Would stay again."
From the moment we arrived, everything about this botique hotel was fabulous. The staff were all amazing - particularly Isabell! Very comfortable & convenient to the Metro, bakeries, a Starbucks, and cafes. We'd stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed 7days this month and could not have had a better experience. Prior to our arrival, I corresponded with the manager by email and her responses were always prompt, helpful and accurate. Upon arrival, we could not have been more pleased with our choice. The hotel was located in a great neighborhood, minutes from The Eiffel Tower, metro and numerous […] shops and restaurants. EVERYTHING you could want was easily within a short walking distance including a laundromat. The hotel was beautiful and exceptionally clean. We had an executive room for one adult and two kids and had more than enough space in the generously sized room. From the moment we arrived, each person we met was extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel seemed to have been recently renovated and the bathrooms were gorgeous! The staff was helpful in every way. They gave us directions whenever we needed and suggestions on local events that we would otherwise have not been aware of. One afternoon in a terrible thunderstorm, my son lost his phone and I went out looking for it. Unknown to me, the front desk person came out after I left the hotel and on my way back I found her looking for the phone on the streets in a complete downpour. And speaking of rain, the nice touch of all of the hotel umbrellas at the front door always came in handy. The kids loved the computer in the library! I really can't say enough about this hotel and it's staff. After this visit, we will ONLY stay here when we visit Paris again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Clean hotel close to metro, Eiffel, cafes."
Enjoyed our stay at the Ares Eiffel very close to a metro station with 3 lines, we walked to the Eiffel tower every night. The staff was very helpful and spoke english and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was very clean, had air conditioning, modern bathroom with two sinks. We had a large bed that was very comfortable. The room […] itself was small compared to rooms in the US and the closet space was minimal but was tastefully furnished. They offered room service for dinner and they offered a buffet breakfast for 18 euros per person. We enjoyed continental breakfast around the corner for half the price. A number of cafes and bistros very close as well as a couple markets. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Gluten free in Paris."
This was our first trip to Paris requiring dietary restriction. The hotel staff was extremely helpful making reservations at restaurants and suggestions for dining. Our room was beautiful, clean and a comfortable size. The mini fridge is stocked daily with water, Orangina, Perrier water, diet Coke and regular Coke for one inclusive fee. This was a bargain […] and nice touch. The provided Hermes products are wonderful. The hotel is near a metro stop that connects three lines which made getting around Paris so easy. We ate the breakfast our first day after traveling from the airport. The selection was good and food was fresh but costly. We missed eating the wonderful breads. Visit Helmut Newcake Bakery for excellent gluten free food, Laduree for macarons and tea. Le Timbre and La Gauloise both were excellent restaurants that prepared gluten free options for us. La Gauloise is close to the hotel, suggested by hotel staff and we ate there several times. We believe the hotel location and helpful staff made our vacation stress free and we would definitely return. We were pickpocketed on the metro but the staff helped us make the needed phone calls. The thief was assisted by a crowded metro and a luggage heavy family with small children, stroller, huge backpack on mother that created confusion and distraction. Do not try to be helpful in a crowded metro. Even innocent travelers will provide thieves with opportunity. Our Paris experience was otherwise full of friendly wonderful people.

This is a small boutique hotel where the guest is king! Great location -- right by the Eiffel tower, next to a train stop with 3 connecting train lines, close to lots of restaurants. Staff is extremely helpful -- setup an airport pickup for us, show tickets, even went out of their way to find a store for us specializing in mascarade masks. Room is very […] clean -- bathroom is brand new, TV with lots of programming in almost every major language, room is cleaned daily and at the times when it is convenient for you. Rooms are small -- as all European hotels -- so take Superior room and you will be satisfied. Overall -- love it so much that my parents booked it for the September vacation in Paris!

"Great Boutique Hotel in a Great Location"
The Hotel Ares went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we had hoped for. Just a short distance from several cafes, brasseries, and restaurants Hotel Ares Eiffel is only a 5-10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and just 5 minutes from Ecole Militaire and Invalides. It is also very close to several shops, banks and markets which makes […] it very convenient. The Motte Picquet Metro line is close by with access to several lines which makes it great if you want to utilize Paris public transportation which is a breeze! The rooms themselves are very spacious for Paris standards. We stayed in a Superior (Room #55) and it had 2 windows (3 if you include the bathroom). The room was very clean, nicely decorated, and the extra touches (chocolates, slippers, and Hermes bath products) make it very nice. Everyone on the staff was great and the owner even introduced himself and asked if everything was to our liking. Julianne goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. We did not eat at the breakfast as we opted for a local café each morning or Starbucks if we were in a hurry. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone.
