Writing a review for everyone is rather difficult since we all have diverse wants/needs in a hotel/apartment. For instance, I generally look for something that is inexpensive, clean, safe, and quiet (and a place that has a gym/fitness room).
That said, here’s what you can expect from the Adagio/Tour Eiffel...
We are a family of four (wife and two teenage boys). We stayed at the Adagio last June/July for 14 days and nights. The room was a bit smallish, but that’s what I expect in Europe so this wasn’t a surprise. We had a one-bedroom apartment and we were fairly comfortable (the family room has a sofa that doubles as a trundle bed). The room has a miniature kitchen (microwave, fridge, pots, pans, utensils, etc.). In fact, this is principally why we chose the Adagio: we wanted to eat meals in the apartment to save a few Euros. Conveniently, there is a supermarket just a five minute walk down the street. We also had free internet access which was a pleasant surprise.
The Adagio is located in a quiet arrondissement. We certainly felt safe the whole time we were here. As mentioned several times on this website, the Eiffel Tower is a good ten minute walk (be aware of pick-picketers when you’re near the Eiffel!!!). The Metro is in the same direction and is perhaps only seven to eight minutes away. The rooms are air conditioned, but our room was always a bit stuffy (seemed that the A/C didn’t work quite right). Again, having been to Europe 50-60 times, this wasn’t unexpected, but my boys were not real happy about it (especially when the temps hit 32C/90F). The staff here was very friendly. We’ve all heard stories, or had experiences, with Parisians, but I found the staff, and Parisians in general, to be very pleasant. Then again, I try to say “Bon Jour” every time I walk into a shop or restaurant and that seemed to be appreciated (just learning to say “Hello” or “Thank you” in any country you visit seems to be appreciated from what I’ve experienced). One other thought, rooms are only cleaned once a week. However, they will provide fresh linen and towels upon request.
The pool is pretty small: you won’t be swimming any laps. The “fitness room” is laughable: it has two pieces of equipment that resemble an elliptical machine and a treadmill and no weights. This “equipment” is located in the same area as the pool. It’s Paris, why do you want a treadmill anyway?! Go out and walk along the Seine for a few miles and enjoy one of the most beautiful cities on earth! All in all, we were quite happy with the Adagio. We paid somewhere around $240 a night and that seemed like a bargain for a family of four in Paris in summer (most hotel rooms only allow three people in a room as you probably have discovered by now). Hope all of this helps… À la prochaine
