Quick thoughts on staying near the Eiffel Tower

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to take my DD (age 9) on a surprise trip to Paris in late March/early April (the week before Easter). I've been thinking about a way to have some special mother/daughter time since DD has been having a rough time adjusting to a new school this year. When I happened to see sale fares to Paris, I thought this might just be the thing!

I'm having a little trouble making a commitment to a hotel though. I want to make reservations in the next couple of days to make sure I can get the best deal possible given that it's just two months away. I was settling on Hotel Muguet which seems to get very good reviews, but then began to worry about staying in the area close to Invalides and the Eiffel Tower thinking that after the first night or two, there might not be a lot to do. Rue Cler is close, but I'm not sure how that stacks up with some other areas and if it's more hype than quality.

When I was in Paris a few years ago with my older daughter, we stayed near the Odeon in the 6th. I liked the hotel and the area very much but was hoping to sample a different part of the city. I looked for hotel options in the Marais, but haven't yet found anything that seems right. I did find another interesting looking place in the 5th, but it's actually rather close to the place I stayed before. One idea I was toying with is to stay at Hotel Muguet for 3 nights and then move to Hotel des Grande Ecole for the last two nights. Is that just asking for a headache?

Thoughts? Other recommendations? I can get a double at Hotel Muguet for 140e/night. Since this trip wasn't planned, I'm looking at "value for money" hotels -- ideally I'd love to get something more like 120e/night.
