This Mercure hotel is located just minutes from the Eiffel Tower, meaning you are right next to the one thing every visitor to Paris wants to see. While this is a bit removed from both the Marais gayborhood and central Paris landmarks, the city’s trusty Metro means that nothing is ever very far away. There is a great Thai-themed gay sauna about 25 minutes away, and there are sometimes gay events at nearby Palais de Tokyo.
The hotel has been recently renovated and all the rooms are looking stylish and modern. The Eiffel Tower is a recurring theme in the rooms, with large murals of the monument overlooking every bed, but the decor is otherwise simple and minimalist. Most of the rooms look alike, but differ in size, amenities, and view – the Eiffel Tower view in certain rooms never gets old. Privilege rooms have additional luxury bedding, iPod docking, and Nespresso machines, while the suites have heavenly essential oils diffusers in the showers.
The downstairs restaurant is airy and extremely pleasant, and also features a terrace for sunny days. Breakfast is tasty, varied, and good value – especially since cafes in the area are likely to be very pricey. The fitness center is small but has perfect views of the Eiffel Tower, making your workouts in Paris that little bit more special.
