The Eiffel Trocadero Hotel, located opposite Trocadero Gardens, a short walk from the Eiffel Tower, is an 18th-century structure that has been redesigned into a funky mix of contemporary design. Its 19 rooms combine modern furniture with traditional French design. Hotel rooms include a mini bar, coffee maker and free wi-fi. The bathrooms have refined marble tiles and most have whirlpools. The onsite restaurant serves Asian French dishes. There is also an elegant meeting room.
Housed in an 18th-century triangular building, the Trocadero Eiffel has a distinct style. Its compact lobby is a melange of influences from the old world like a wooden desk painted in grey-silver and spatial spaces hang from the ceiling.
The restaurant features a black and white, neoclassical chairs on shiny black tables and a ceiling dotted with lights.
The Eiffel Tower Trocadero Hotel is within walking distance to many of the city's sights - it is just a 13-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. The Jardins du Trocadero, a 23-hectare sculpted landscape created in 1878 for the Paris World Fair, is a 3-minute walk away. The gardens house the Palais de Chaillot (four minutes on foot), which houses the Musee National de la Marine and the Musee National des Monuments Francais.
The Arc de Triomphe can be reached in five minutes or by taxi, while the Louvre can be reached in nine minutes. For business travellers, La Defense is around 15 minutes by car, depending on the destination of the neighbourhood, or about half an hour on the subway. Charles de Gaulle Airport is about half an hour away.
