hotel eiffel capitol paris

Heading to Paris? We share a review of the Hotel Eiffel Capitol Paris, our favourite little budget hotel in the heart of the city.

Sleek, modern and perfect for a romantic getaway, Hotel Eiffel Capitol was an ideal choice for our visit to Paris. When booking a half term break to Paris, I spent hours searching for a decent hotel with a good location that was affordable on my cover teacher wage. This isn’t a big popular chain and at the time, had very few Tripadvisor reviews but I booked anyway and here is why.



Rooms at the Eiffel Capitol Hotel


The rooms are well decorated with a sophisticated, modern look. The room isn’t cluttered with lots of furniture, meaning we had plenty of space for our luggage and personal items. The bed was large and comfortable and the room had a long window that gave us that ‘Chic Paris’ view of the surrounding streets and the tip Eiffel Tower in the background.

The Staff


The staff were incredibly friendly and were able to check us in early. The gentleman at the front desk always greeted us and wished us well when entering and leaving the hotel.


The Location


Perfect! The hotel is just a 12 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and a 2 minute walk from the Dupleix Metro Station, which can whisk you to all the top attractions of Paris. The area is peaceful and charming, with some lovely Parison restaurants aside your typical fast food places and chic bars.

The Value

The hotel cost us €112 a night with prices being higher than average because it was half term in the UK. Special offers are available from the hotel’s website and a buffet breakfast option is also offered. For an expensive city, we felt this was good value considering its great location.

  1. 12 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower sounds pretty amazing to me! Looks like a perfect place to stay!

  2. This couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m heading to Paris in March and want something close to the Eiffel tower. This looks like the perfect hotel for a quick getaway. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hey Maggie, have a great time! Yes we were only in Paris for a few days and this hotel meant we could get around easily and quickly!

  3. Any hotel in Paris that leaves a lot of room for things like luggage is a win for me! This looks like a great hotel with its proximity to all of the popular locations. Will check it out next time!

  4. I’m living in Dublin now and am looking to visit Paris next year. This hotel sounds perfect, especially being so close to the metro.

    • Oh have a fab time in Paris, it is a stunning place! And yeah we always look for a hotel near the metro as it makes travel so much more convenient.

  5. This looks like a good option for that area. It is always hard to find decent affordable accommodation in Paris.

  6. That really is one of the most difficult parts of planning a trip to Paris; finding affordable accommodation that’s close to the action and you certainly seem to have discovered one. I keep telling my girlfriend her over reliance on TripAdvisor isn’t always a good idea and this seems to prove that. Great find and I’m sure others will soon be following in your footsteps.

  7. Oh, I wish that you had posted a view from out of your room!! But 112 Euros really isn’t all that bad to stay so close to the city! I usually stay a little farther in some other arrondissements, but sometimes do splurge to be in the thick of things! Maybe during off season!

  8. Seems like a great place for its proximity to everything! I hope to get to Paris sometime in the near future, so I’ll have to save this recommendation. So many gorgeous photo spots there 🙂

  9. Short and sweet, love it! Looks like a great place to stay and that price even tho higher than usually is not bad at all 🙂 Thanks for sharing – I’ll check it out next time I’m in town!
