It’s all about location and price 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 rooms. Low rates.
Cons: Plain furnishings and basic amenities.
Planted next to a bank, an organic shop and a Métro station, the Hôtel Royal Phare offers a convenient home base and rates that can’t be beat in the neighborhood. If you plan to hoof it to tourist hotspots like the Eiffel Tower and the Rue Cler market, and don't mind a simple room, this two-star hotel could fit the bill.
What about the rooms? Well, they’re smallish and decorated in a no-frills, minimal manner. Perhaps a striped bedspread and coordinating curtains. Perhaps. Otherwise, they’re just dated, clean and a bit scuffed up.
All 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 quite clean, and their wall-to-wall tiles shine. Most have windows and bidets, and bathtubs are also available (request ahead).
Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Also, the hotel does have an elevator, but it’s so small that 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.
