Left Bank Charm: Hotel Vic Eiffel
A big thanks to ParisInfo and Hotel Vic Eiffel for the lovely stay! As always, all opinions are our own.

Hotel Vic Eiffel in Paris, France

Finding the proper hotel is important to us; our criteria are stringent - and a bit eclectic.

We love neighborhoods, places where we can soak in the culture and the atmosphere of a destination. We prefer locally-owned to large chains, cozy to ritzy, and little touches to heavy-handed luxury. We want to walk outside and be where we are.

Hotel Vic Eiffel in Paris fit the bill - and more.

From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home.

We were warmly welcomed by the Vic Eiffel manager, Nathalie, who gave us a quick tour before settling us in our room.

After filling Nathalie in on our long journey to Paris, she suggested some local cafes for a quiet dinner… after a much needed nap.

Our room was truly a haven from the busy city surrounding us - quiet, nicely sized by Euro-standards, and fitted with blissful black-out blinds.

Add in an uber-comfy bed, Wi-Fi in the room, and a jammin' in-room coffee machine (took a bit for our American selves to figure out how to make it work - but so worth it when we did!) a GypsyNester's dream.

<-- Oh, we forgot to mention the view!

The downside of choosing a neighborhood hotel -- as opposed to one in thick of a city -- is usually the lack of ease of getting around. This was not the case at Vic Eiffel.

The lobby of the Vic Eiffel Hotel

There is a metro station right across the street (think quiet Paris trains - not NYC subway loud!). We used it on those days that we didn't leisurely (yeah, right) stroll the lanes of Paris.

After our crazy days sightseeing, it was so nice to return to surroundings with the warmth of a family-owned inn, but fully furnished with the modern amenities that travelers have come to rely on.
