Nght reception could use improvement in their people skills. Location was excellent; turn left when leaving the hotel, left again at the corner and within minutes you are at the base of the Eiffle Tower. The travel service next door was more accommodating than the hotel staff. Breakfast was expensive for the meager options. We used the local shops. The room was small but clean and certainly met our needs. Overall, our visit was outstanding.

Rooms were clean and location perfect! If you need wi-fi, the only place where it worked was in the lobby. Also the patio was under construction. This was hugely disappointing. I would have expected better during the tourist season. I set up a taxi on my last day. It was 70 euros - taxi didn't accept credit cards - ran thru CDG airport to find ATM. Still a great vacation but I will pick a different hotel next time.

The hotel was in a great location and the staff was pleasant and informative. We had an enjoyable stay and would come back again. It was a great value for the price. We did not partake of the breakfast but rather went to a local café. For some reason the terrace was not available while we were there so we could not use it to enjoy a glass of wine. No big deal.

Our group of 5 really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location was excellent. There were plenty of affordable restaurants around the hotel. The metro was very close so we were able to get around Paris without any problems. It was nice that the front desk was staffed 24 / 7 with very friendly individuals who spoke English very well. I certainly would stay here again.

The hotel staff was very nice and all spoke English. The rooms were really small, but apparently that's what you get in Paris. The price was great, relative to other places, but still expensive...it's Paris! AMAZING bakeries (two of them!) are within a 30 second walk from the hotel which made breakfast a great experience. Best croissants EVER!

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was not what I would consider 3star...more like a 2star hotel. The bed was hard and low to floor. The day that I was to checkout, I took a walk and came back about 30 minutes before checkout and the maid was already cleaning my room with my stuff still in the room...I did not like that! Trying to arrange shuttle service from airport to hotel was very difficult...finally had to get Venere.com involved. The front deskclerk also followed up to ensure that I at least knew where the shuttle was to pick me up at the airport. The shuttle that the hotel uses to pick up guest from the airport was 2.5 hrs late because of traffic. And the driver took me to the wrong hotel at first. Maybe the hotel should look into getting another service. I arrived at the airport around 7AM and got to my hotel 5 hrs later because of the above issues. The hotel is most convenient and in a great location...just need to upgrade their rooms to be a 3star hotel.

Upon check in the desk staff member was professional, but I would not say outwardly friendly. He gave us our key and told us the floor but did not mention there was an elevator so my poor boyfriend carried our 2 heavy suitcases up 3 flights of stairs to only at our room discover that there was a lift. The room was small, but that did not bother us as when you are in Paris you have many better things to do than sit in a hotel room. There is a bakery at the end of the alley that has the BEST breakfast! We spent each night with a bottle of wine laying in the grass looking up at the Eiffel Tower (approx 5-10 min walk). Upon check out the young lady desk worker gave us very good directions on how to get to the subway station and which trains to take. Overall, it was a good hotel but expect no frils.

Good family-owned restaurant around the corner, 1-1/2 blocks, toward the Eiffel Tower. Elevator broke the last day as we were carrying out our luggage.

I will say that the location is the BEST part of this hotel! I found the hotel itself to not be a 3-STAR as stated. I stay in many 3-STAR and above hotels and this is not. There were not clocks in the rooms, hair dryers, very dark hallways and stairways. However, it is a European hotel and and I knew the rooms would be small (which mine was) but that was ok. For the price I did not expect to much. So, it was a fine place to stay a nite, maybe two. I would not want to stay to long. The location is very nice. The reception at front desk was moderate. They did help me arrange transportation to the airport. Which was very helpful and more affordable than a taxi!So, If I were to go back, I would probably pay a little more and stay somewhere else.

A wonderful, small hotel in the Rue Cler district. Very close to everything. The room was simple, small but adequate. It was on a quiet street and sleeping was not a problem (though I was there in winter). The 5 flight walk up may be a problem for some, though rooms on lower floors may be available.

wow, okay where do i start!! if you have never been to paris before, then look no further, this is the place to stay!! its situated 2 blocks from the eiffel tower and is located in the area that you definitely want to stay. The streets are clean, its romantic, its the nice part of paris. no sketchy people, no smell of urine, no beggars, no thieves etc. just beautiful paris. the staff of htoel de'l alma are warm and helpful and stay out of your business. the rooms are a little smaller than normal but you get what you pay for. our room had a very clean, modern bathroom and a window which had beautiful views. the hotel is located in a quiet lane, there are no clubs or bars around so you will get a good nights sleep. we were able to get a really good deal through venere and were very happy for what we paid for. We had friends who stayed in another part of paris and were afraid to leave their hotel and when they came to our hotel were very happy with hotel de'l alma. strongly suggest this place for people who want dont want to spend a fortune, but would like to be in a nice part of paris!!

My first time in Paris and with Hotel De l'Alma inmidst of real PAris, wonderfully located in a sidestreet to rue grenelles, the bus round the corner, the sites and metro 5 minutes away. the personal was very friendly and helpful. I did not have breakfast in the hotel, but there are many nice cafes just round the corner! My room was to the street, of course I heard some noises, but the view outside the window to the parisien surrounding was very nice. I took a twin as a single traveller, and the room was then big enough for me, the bathroom was anyway not small. conclusion: fine location, pricerelationship totally ok, I can recommend it.

The room was small but perfectly adequate for a short stay in Paris. It would be too small for a longer stay as there is very little/no space for luggage. A hairdryer should have been provided but wasn't. The location of the hotel is excellent! Very central, some rooms have view onto Eiffel Tower; at the same time it was quiet and peaceful.Staff was professional and polite. There is a lovely little Italian Restaurant around the corner on Avenue Bosquet called tina's; excellent food and good service. And very reasonably priced.

The manager and hotel's staff didn´t help me to find a solution and so I went to the Paris Police in order to make an ocurrence. Even so, still today the hotel didn´t give me any solution for my case. I didn´t recomment a hotel where you can´t let your stuff inside the room without any safety.

Great staff and terrific area, with a slightly different, "real" feel when compared to the more tourist-centered places to stay. Rooms were tight, but that's par for the course, and the walls were a bit thin, but good restaurants and cafes nearby, a British pub was close, and a terrific shopping street a few blocks away. The subway was close, but you had to make a change to get to any of the more popular areas.

I am confident that there are thousands of better hotels to stay at in Paris that this one! I have been to Paris three times and stayed at a variety of hotels in Paris varying from hostels to one and two star hotels. THIS HOTEL IS BY FAR THE WORST HOTEL I have had to stay at, no question. I was afraid for my life in the elevator and the doors opened to absolute darkness where I had to feel around for doors and light switches while my eyes adjusted to the low light. Thankfully I did not stumble to close to the open staircase right next to the elevator... In true Parisian style I was not warned of this or I would have taken the stairs. The entire hotel including the room had a very strong cigarette smell mixed with what I can only hope to be a cheap cleaner. The bed was uncomfortable. I felt dirtier coming out of the shower than going in. There was no clock in the room and the so called automated alarm system you are supposed to program with the phone did not work so I had to argue with the fellow at the front desk for a wake up call in the morning so I could make it to work on time. The two night guys were absolutly the rudest people I have met in Paris and the manager only worked from 9:00 to 15:00 so there was no option for money back or canceling my reservation for the second night since I had to work. This place is not even a half star hotel but advertises 3 stars. The St. Christopher's Paris hostel N.E. of Gare du Nord station which I stayed at later in the week was a luxery palace in comparison to Hotel De l'Alma!

There is little correspondence between photographs and reality. The hotel is old and shabby. The rooms (single, double and common areas) are really small up to the extent that you cannot comfortably seat on the toilet and three people cannot have breakfast together in the breakfast room. The breakfast is too simple and disorganised. The bedroom was extremely noisy the first night. Although the problem was fortunately solved (otherwise we would have seriously considered looking for another hotel)still some noise remained. Thus, never again.

quite expensive.you can reach easily the tour but the rest of the city is quite far.you need to take the metro or RER but you have to walk for5-10 minutes. It is also far away from the Paris Expo. The stuff was quite friendly.

The only thing I would recommend is the location. I stayed for one night for a business trip stopover to Barcelona. Since my intention was to do a quick sightseeing, the location was excellent. The room is extremely small and very poorly illuminated. It was quiet though... Overall cleaness was so-so. Check-in and out were OK, if you can speak French.

Con mia moglie abbiamo passato 4 giorni a Parigi. L'albergo è carino senza pretese. Le camere non erano pulitissime e davvero piccole. La prima colazione non era compresa nel prezzo. Per il resto il personale è gentile e abbastanza disponibile.

What a great hotel! Locationwise, we couldn't have asked for better. Fairly close to Ecole Militaire metro, and only a couple of blocks from the Eiffel Tower and the Seine. There were some great little restaurants nearby (and reasonably priced if you don't go to the ones on the tourist trail). At the end of the street is a great patisierie (sp?) where we breakfasted each morning. The room was comfortable and was well maintained. Only challenge was there was only one English channel on the television (CNN), but as we didn't spend much time in the room that was a minor problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a great experience for us.

Rate Q/P very bad, we change to another hotel (in the same street) at the 2nd day and we paid 25 less euros (for the same quallity). The hotel is little, the only difference with a 2 star hotel (this is a 3 star hotel) besides the price is the "frigo bar"....

The room was absolutely tiny (which was what I was expecting, I guess.) It was really difficult to open or lock our door, as the handle of our door was in horrible condition; I couldn't get the key out and had to get someone to help me! Hotel staff gave us incorrect and unhelpful information. (For anyone's future reference, there is no longer a consigne (left luggage) at Gare de L'est!) The location, however, was brilliant. I loved the neighbourhood we were in, even if the beds were exceptionally uncomfortable. Next time I would try another hotel in the same area, I think.

This is a small and cute hotel in the heart of Paris. It is situated on a very quiet street close to different shops and bakery stores. It is 5 minutes away from the Eiffel and depending on the angle of the room, you may even have a view of the tower from your room. It is a few minutes walking from the Eiffel, the river and a metro station. All other main attractions in Paris are only 2-3 station away on the metro. The hotel staff is very nice and friendly. I recommend this hotel, and I will stay there again upon my return to Paris.

Very, very disappointed in this hotel - for Three Stars - it was awful - Hotel Caladrez Cambronne for two stars was far superior. We had room 34 - walls dirty, rug dirty, looks like an amateur renovated bathroom - very poor quality renovation - never recommend to anyone

The rooms were small but comfortable - we booked twin rooms but were allocated doubles, but the helpful desk clerk (Krimo) managed to find some twins. Good location near Eiffel Tower, a few late night bistros nearby.

I went to this hotel expecting just a cheap dirty room, but i was pleasently surprised. the rooms were clean and tidy, and quite pretty. the location was excellent, close to the train station and very easy to find. the staff were helpful and spoke reasonable english. the surrounding areas were good, with great places to eat all around. the price was reasonable considering the quality of the rooms. Overall i was very pleased with this hotel, and if i am im paris again, then i'll make sure to return.

Terrible! For starters, be careful of the elevator. It sinks when you step into it with your baggage. This place was terrible! No A/C but be careful of opening the windows because the bats might fly in from the courtyard. Safe doesn't work. Shower nozzle and base broken. Gaudy color scheme of bright orange and red for the room colors. No space to move around in the room. Saggy bed. Housekeeping likes to walk in on you without knocking. Toilet difficult to use because of its orientation with the wall. Bring your own toilet paper; unless you'd like to use little pieces of pink kleenex provided. The only thing this place has going for it would be the close location to Eiffel Tower and cafe. Great room if you just need to crash, and don't care about comfort.

The hotel has a quiet but central location in the 7th and we found the staff very nice and helpful and the price reasonable for the room which was small but I have seen much smaller. We would stay here again if we were looking to be in this end of Paris.

We booked 2 rooms...one for my wife and I and one for my parents. We stayed 4 nights. The location is excellent...easy walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, Rue Cler shopping, and many resturants. We had two complaints. Firstly we felt that the rooms, particulary the bathrooms, were not cleaned as thoroughly as they should have been. Secondly, we had a fairly bizzare incident that proved, without a doubt, that someone was going thru our belongings while we were out. Let me describe what happened: One of my parent's suitcases had a small lock on it to which they haven't had a key for years. It is attached to one side of a zipper and when the zipper is closed it appears, at first glance, to be locked. One day when they returned to their room the suitcase was actually locked!! Someone had opened the lock, assuming that the suitcase itself was locked, presumably examined the contents of the suitcase, then relocked the suitcase!! My father took the suitcase down to the front desk and explained what happened. They simply shrugged their shoulders and offered to cut the lock off for him. Nothing was taken, as all of our valuables were in the room safe, but there's obviously a security problem and that makes us reluctant to recommend this hotel to others.

This is a quaint hotel in a wonderful Parisian neighborhood within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, shopping, banks all within walking distance.

Elevator in the hotel was broken so we did need to climb 5 flights of steps. However, generally it was a perfectly good hotel, great location and excellent value.
