Located on the market-lined rue Cler above a café, fromagerie and a wine cave, the two-star Grand Hôtel Lévêque provides a comfy, central base at reasonable rates.
Pros: Charming market street location near the Eiffel Tower. Mod design in some rooms. AC.
Cons: Street-facing rooms could be noisy. Dated design in some tired rooms.
The Lévêque is undergoing a slow floor-by-floor makeover, converting its 50 rooms into newer, slicker ones. Renovated or not, all rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a television, phone and free Wi-Fi. Toiletries are also included in all rooms.
There are currently two floors of new “superior” rooms, which are small, but audaciously outfitted with funky lights, mod chairs, leather headboards and sleek, matching desks and mirrors. Bathrooms are also big on modernist design, with over-sized tiles and square fixtures.
The less expensive “standard” rooms are old-fashioned and rather drab, with walls in need of a fresh paint-job. Bathrooms are medium-sized but clean.
Rooms facing the street boast seasonal flower boxes and panoramic views of the Rue Cler and its bustling mini-markets. They’re great for people-watching, but remember that where there’s activity, there’s usually noise (pack earplugs if you’re in need of “Zs”).
Breakfast is served downstairs in the swanky lounge for a not-so-Cheapo €9.
The rue Cler is a charming market street located a 5-10 minute walk east of the Eiffel Tower. The location will be ideal for guests who want to fling open their windows in the morning to see morning shopkeepers hustling and shoppers bustling. It’s also lined with hotels, cafés and restaurants. This area will be mostly quiet at night, as most sights (save a very famous tower) are located in more central neighborhoods.

About the Grand Hotel Leveque neighborhood
Many of the surrounding streets offer up storybook views of the Eiffel Tower, still the tallest building in Paris. Another striking monument is the 18-carat-gold dome of the Invalides, that glimmers along the Seine's left bank, just east of the Eiffel Tower. Notable museums include the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée Rodin and the Musée du Quai Branly.
