At the beginning of March, Christine and I went on a weekend trip to Paris, and since it was our first time in the city, we wanted to stay close to the famous Eiffel tower. So, our choice fell on Novotel Tour Eiffel, which is within walking distance to the Eiffel tower and a metro station!
Here’s a full review of our stay at Novotel Tour Eiffel in Paris, and what you can expect as a hotel guest over there!
Short description of Novotel Tour Eiffel
Novotel Tour Eiffel is a 4-star hotel, and a member of AccorHotels, just a few minutes walk from one of the world’s most recognized landmarks. Here you can enjoy the great standard that comes with the Novotel brand without breaking the bank while visiting Paris. From Novotel Tour Eiffel you’re also close to the metro station Charles Michel and RER Station Gare de Javel.
The hotel is a great place to stay for shopping and sightseeing. Check-in time is from 14:00 and Check-out time is at 12:00.
Room Standard – Standard Room with Queen Size Bed
There are 4 room types at Novotel Tour Eiffel, and the Standard room is their entry level. It’s available from around 200 Euros per night. The room is spacious, has a comfy bed, a desk, and a bathroom equipped with a bath tube.
The toilet was located next to the door, which is quite nice to have separated from the bathroom. The TV is a modern flat-screen and comes with several channels. Most of them were in French, but there were also quite a few in English and Italian.
The Standard room is great for business travelers, couples or solo travelers. The Queen size bed is comfortable and big enough for 2 people. The pillows were nice as well, and I woke up rested and fresh the next morning!
We had a great view from our room where we could see the Seine river and the city.
This Is What You Get When Booking A Standard Room with Queen Size Bed

|Tea/Coffee maker||Complimentary Water|
|Bathtub or shower||Electric kettle|
Another thing that caught my attention, is the fact that the toiletries offered are Fair Trade, which is important and a great initiative.
The Breakfast at Novotel Tour Eiffel is a standard continental breakfast. It’s served daily at the same level as the lobby. Some of the highlights were the freshly made baguettes and croissants.
What We Could Choose From The Breakfast Buffet
- Scrambled Eggs
- Pan Au Chocolat
- Orange Juice
Outside The Room
The hotel is quite big with 30 floors, and there are two main general areas where you can sit down and relax. One is in the lobby, and the other one is downstairs at entrance level where you can find sofas, games, and chairs. Novotel Tour Eiffel also has a restaurant and a café where you can get some snacks and food.
If you want to relax after some shopping and sightseeing in Paris, you can go to the Spa section, where you will find an indoor pool. Here you can also find the Gym for exercising.

The Staff at Novotel Tour Eiffel were always friendly and helpful. Room service is available, which we called to get a wine-opener. When he arrived, he offered to open the wine for us and also gave us 2 wine glasses. I think it took about 5 minutes after we called, so I will say great and fast service!
At check-in, everything went smoothly and we were welcomed with a smile. This was also true at the Breakfast restaurant as well as during check-out. If you need any tips and recommendations for Paris, you can always talk with the hotel’s concierge.
The Wi-Fi connection at Novotel Tour Eiffel worked great throughout the property, and we had no issues at all. Speed was pleasant, and we could even watch Netflix on our laptops without a problem.
The location is ideal for first-time visitors who want to be close to the metro as well as the Eiffel Tower. From here you can walk to Trocadero and you also have some shopping in your proximity. In addition to the Metro system, you can also walk to a close-by RER station.
It’s easy to get here from Paris Orly Airport as well as CDG Airport and Beauvais, where low-cost airlines such as Ryanair flies to.
