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.
HOTEL EIFFEL CAPITOL REVIEW
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 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.
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 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.
Things to know before you go to Paris
- We LOVE this camera for our travel photography.
- For a cheap, easy and compact camera, we use this to vlog and take photographs.
- We use this travel drone (but make sure to check drone laws in your chosen destination first).
- This is our favorite travel insurance because it covers so many activities and travel situations that could arise on longer trips but also offer year coverage.
What to pack
- No matter where we travel to, I always take these trusty hand sanitizer’s and a mini first aid kit.
- We love these toiletry bags (especially great for smaller bathrooms) and choose a laptop bag like this as our hand luggage.
- We keep our devices charged on long travel days with these lightweight battery packs and bring these worldwide travel adaptors on all our trips.
- I still struggle not to overpack so stick to using an expandable suitcase like these, over backpack and always take my trusty luggage scales to avoid being charged at the airport.
