This lively cobblestone street effectively preserves the ambience of Paris of old and is home to countless small shops.

Located near the Eiffel Tower, we visited due to the many great tripadvisor reviews. However in August a lot of the shops/vendors were shut up for the summer and the street was really very short, so literally spent 5 minutes wandering up and back down....More

Some restaurants are tasty but all are way to expensive and this is caused due their distance to the Eiffel Tower. Also standard high price food stores are here. Only a few locations provide real fine ingredients.

For about three blocks this is an intense experience of food shopping. My favorite was the cheese shop of hundreds of kinds of cheeses beautifully displayed. Fun place to shop near the Eiffel Tower.

With it's many shops this street is an ok place to see on the way to a touristic attraction. In itself is not much.

Can probably count on most places on Rue Cler opening by 9:00am, most close around 6:00pm. A few stores close mid day for an hour or so. Most bistros open all day. Most everything, except bistros, close about 6:00pm.

We stayed in an apartment in Saint Germain (which is a great area to stay in) so I don't know anything about the apartments you are asking about. Rue Cler is in the 7th Arrondissement / Eiffel Tower.
