It’s all about location and convenience at the two-star Royal Phare. With rates that are consistently some of the lowest in the neighborhood, we’d call it a Phare deal.
Pros: Great location convenient to the Eiffel Tower. Clean, comfy rooms.
Cons: Plain furnishings and basic amenities.
Planted next to a bank, an organic shop and a Métro station, the Hôtel Royal Phare offers convenience and rates that can hardly be beat. If you plan to hoof it to touristic hotspots like the Eiffel Tower and the Rue Cler market, and don't mind a simple place with very basic furnishings, this two-star hotel could fit the bill. Location is its greatest asset.
The Royal Phare’s 34 rooms are on the small side and furnished with standard wooden headboards, desks and closets. Striped bedspreads play nicely with fan-shaped light fixtures and 1950s-inspired peachy walls.
There is no air conditioning (a fact that some previous guests have complained about), but rooms are equipped with a fan, TV, telephone, mini-fridge and double-glazed windows. Two rooms have balconies, and a few of the top-floor, courtyard-facing rooms have views of the Eiffel Tower.
Private bathrooms are spotless, and their wall-to-wall tiles shine. Most have windows and bidets, and bathtubs are also available (request ahead). Toiletries are included.
Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Also, the elevator is so small it had us in stitches (metaphorically, and almost physically!). Breakfast in the sunny dining room costs €7.50.

About the Hotel Royal Phare 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.
