About Derby Eiffel Hotel
Situated in the 7th Arrondissement, the Derby Eiffel Hotel is close to many historical monuments in Paris including the Ecole Militaire and its former drill grounds now known as the Champ de Mars where the iconic Eiffel Tower is located at the opposite end.
Located on a one-way street, the Derby Eiffel Hotel is set within a typical Parisian building spread over several floors and many other popular Paris tourist attractions are within very easy walking distance as well, just like Les Invalides with its canons, museums and the Tomb of Napoleon.
Having been refurbished including all rooms and the lounge by a designer, the Derby Eiffel Hotel now offers more comfortable and contemporary styling throughout for a pleasant and enjoyable stay with 3 star facilities, whether you are in Paris for business or pleasure. Yet please do not get this hotel mixed up with another which is one of the 5 star hotels in Paris that has a very similar name, but is in a completely different area of Paris.
Derby Eiffel Hotel Facilities
There is a 24 hour reception at Derby Eiffel Hotel with staff able to speak English as well as French, who are there to help you get the most out of your holiday in Paris, whether it be booking a taxi, organising airport transfers and much more.
You will find a comfortable lounge area with sofas and arm chairs where you can sit and read a newspaper and keep up to date with the news, or utilise the WiFi to keep in touch with family and friends back home.
Additionally, something you don't always find in 3 star hotels in Paris is the fact that you could enjoy a drink from the contemporary bar, non-alcoholic or with alcohol such as a nice glass of French wine, and even one of the various cocktails made up for you, so you can end the day on a relaxing note, although this area is actually open from 9am through to midnight!
Breakfast at Derby Eiffel Hotel is served buffet style within the breakfast room every day from 7am through to 10:30am and on offer are the traditional French baguettes, croissants and delicious pastries along with accompaniments such as honey and jams. In addition, there are eggs, cheeses and a charcuterie selection of cold meats, all of which are of French origin plus there are of course cereals available as well. But let's not forget hot beverages and fruit juice, just as you would get with any typical French continental style breakfast, even at one of the many cafes in Paris.
