A great area for seeing another non-tourist part of Paris. With small shops, restaurants/ cafes and a lot of bakeries, it's a good place for getting a break from all the tourists

A visit to Rue Cler is well worth your time when on the way to the Eiffel Tower. The street itself is one of only 5 or 6 in Paris that must remain untouched by time and probably looks about the same as it did...More

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.

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.
