Rue Cler Paris: Hotels, Restaurants, and Market
The Rue Cler neighborhood of Paris has been made extremely popular by a certain travel empresario that hales from Edmonds, Washington. Rick Steves, an American travel writer lists the Rue Cler area among the tops when suggesting places to stay while visiting Paris.
We decided to take his suggestion. And, we found ourselves staying on Rue Cler to see what all the fuss is about.
Located in the 7th (7éme) arrondissement, the same as the Eiffel Tower, on the Rive Gauche, or left bank. Everyone who loves Paris, and many that don’t as well, know the Left Bank.
Rue Cler is one of the most popular market streets in Paris. This is a pedestrian street these days and is lined with a variety of specialty food stores, patisseries, butchers, delicatessens, cheese specialists, fishmongers, greengrocers, chocolate shops and cafés.
The above video offers a real good feel for the street on a pretty quiet day.
There are a number of comfortable hotels in the neighborhood, and the streets that surround it.
Located at 7 Rue du Champs de Mars is where we hung our hat for the four days we were in Paris. Located as it is so close to the Eiffel Tower and other sights, it’s a great location.
Our room, over-looking Rue du Champs de Mars, was quite clean and comfortable and afforded us a bit of a view of some of the goings on down the block. I must say however that it was a bit of a tight squeeze for us.
The room was a tad on the small size. A double room with a large bed, like ours, will set you back between €130 and €170 a night as of the date of this update.
The hotel serves a continental breakfast as well. That runs you €10 each. I am not a fan of eating breakfast in most hotels unless it is included. Usually, you can get a better price elsewhere.
