On a recent trip to France, Barge Lady Stephanie checked into the Hotel de Londres Eiffel for an overnight stay.
Read all about her experience at this new Barge Lady favorite!
Located in the heart of the bustling 7th arrondissement, the Hotel de Londres Eiffel comes with a fascinating backstory. Due to the location’s proximity to the Eiffel Tower, it was originally built as a rooming house for the iron workers who bravely built the iconic monument.
Now a chic boutique hotel, it’s just steps away from the major attractions in Paris, such as the Musee d’Orsay and the Hotel des Invalides, making it the perfect choice for those who enjoy both local flavor and tourist activities!
Upon checking in, I was immediately impressed by the whimsical decor, popped with lots of colorful design and a veritable cornucopia of artfully placed flower arrangements within the lobby. Flowers! Everywhere! Adorable!
I then swooned over the small enclosed garden in the darling dining room, AND could not get over the the library wall filled with lots of fiction, biographies, and historical literature. A bookworm’s paradise!
The front desk was staffed with a most cordial fellow, who immediately handed me a map, as well as a curated list of nearby landmarks and, and best of all, the staff’s picks for where and what to eat! I also loved the quiet jazz music piped into the lobby, adding further to the modern and marvelous ambiance.
My room was equally as delightful, with cheerfully printed wallpaper, another smattering of flowers, and, most charmingly, a vintage rotary telephone. (This hotel had me at the vintage rotary telephone.) I happily settled in for a quiet evening of rest and relaxation, especially enjoying the comfortable bed and premium sheets.
A quick shower the next morning proved equally as delightful, thanks to the spacious washroom, fluffy towels, and L’Occitane toiletries. Magnifique!
I had the most enjoyable experience at the Hotel de Londres Eiffel, as you can tell, and cannot wait to recommend it to the Barge Lady’s guests.
Merci “BOUQUET”, Hotel de Londres Eiffel!
