How to Get There
My wife and I traveled to Paris for our first time and decided to stay at Le Metropolitan; it did not disappoint.
The hotel is very well hidden amongst the residential buildings of the 8th ARR, which add a very local feeling to your stay. It's a small boutique hotel with English speaking staff that offers a small swimming pool in the basement, a steam room and spa services and an award winning restaurant that serves fantastic food at reasonable prices given food prices in Paris.
Room sizes are typical European sizes with a separate toilet and shower area and two twin beds were pushed together to create a queen bed. We found with two carry on luggage's and 2 checked luggage's the space was a little tight, but it did not feel uncomfortable.
Complimentary use of the in room Nespresso machine was a nice touch with refill pods provided daily. Additionally the complimentary cell phone provided by the hotel offers guests the ability to make local calls for free and and LTE data (which is helpful if you have the Paris Metro App), although we found it slow and opted for a tourist SIM card from Orange. The daily water bottles provided helped us when walking the street of Paris.
Guests can take comfort in knowing that there is a grocery store less than 2 mins walk (200M) from the hotel if they want to make food, buy water, or alcohol.
Trocadero Metro station is less than a 10 min walk from the hotel and is a great Metro station that has many direct lines to popular tourist destinations.
Major tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elyees, Palais de Tokyo are all largely with a 10-20 min walk from the hotel, most of which is downhill.
The neighbor is safe and well lit with people walking around at all hours, we felt comfortable walking back to the hotel from late night drinks at 1230AM.
All in all, this is a great hotel within walking distance of many tourist attractions. Its proximity to the Metro make getting around Paris simple. We easily come back and stay at Le Metroplitan again.
We stayed for two nights in the Eiffel Tower view room. It was very nice and clean. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. Definitely worth the stay. Close to everything you want to do. Only about a 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower.
I would definitely stay here again on a future trip to Paris. It is an easy walk to the Trocadero and the Eiffel tower. Three of us walked there from the Arc de Triomphe also. There is a market in a nearby building that has a great selection of groceries and wine. We had a view of the Eiffel tower from our rooms which was a treat. The staff were friendly. The hotel was very comfortable, although yes the rooms are small by US standards.
The service at the front desk was what really stood out about this hotel. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I had a junior suite which had a separate sitting area. Friends had a smaller single room (small based on US standards). The bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast was enough food for me (cost €20). There was a larger selection plus a list of additional items available for breakfast (additional cost).
I styed there for a weekend in February. The rooms are nice and quiet, and the pool/wellness area downstairs is really confidential and pretty.
On the down side, the curtains in the bedroom are not 100% blackout so bring your sleeping mask. The bathroom shower door is not leakproof which i had the bad surprise to discover when i took my first shower in, and there is no ventilation in there so it gets really humid.
I had a couple of minor issues with the front desk: i requested an iron which never came (when I called to remind them an hour later, they had forgotten...) and since there is no concierge, the staff make no effort to give any kind of valuable advice. They were unable to help us on several simple information requests like a good restaurant nearby or a place to buy wine (spoiler alert, we found both within less than 300 meters of the hotel) and we were speaking french. Before us was a couple of Russian people and the staff was completely unable to even understand them, and they made no effort to try to communicate, like to use google translate or something. It was obvious they had absolutely no interest to go out of their way to provide acceptable service.
