Stu, our guide, presented French history, in particular Louis XIV, XV, XVI, Napoleon and the Revolution. with such humor and originality and used our tour mates as characters to explain the story. He is a young guy from London, well credentialed in French history, and speaks good French. Anyway, We ...
This morning we had another complimentary breakfast by the hotel, this time cereal and a chocolate croissant with Nutella! Nom nom nom!! We then jumped in a taxi and headed off to our first stop of French desserts cooking class. The kitchen was so cute and our chef teacher Emmanuelle was so nice. We shared our class with three Russians, I think only one could really speak English but we had a great time! We cooked creme brûlée, chocolate tarts, hazelnut ...
... Tower to light up, took some photos, and then headed for the Louvre to take photos in the square. Eerily, a crescent moon appeared between the clouds over the Louvre as I was taking photos. Bad moon rising.
We headed for home from the Louvre at around 11.15pm, and arrived home around 11.30pm.

Raining again today.
First place to visit was Notre Dame. Can't say anything that hasn't been said before - took many pictures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre_Dame _de_Paris
Second place to see was the Eiffel Tower. It looks just like the pictures and I'm sure it was very impressive 'in the ...
... included dinner at Sultan's (within walking distance of the hotel). It was a Turkish restaurant, and the food was chicken with rice. Toward the end of the meal, a cop suddenly ran into the restaurant and then a bunch more followed. Within seconds, the whole place was full of police and we had no idea what was going on. We found out afterward that it was just a routine raid (because apparently that's normal?). At least it made the night memorable, haha.

Historical Traveler Reviews Eiffel - Kennedy Hotel Paris
As the seventh reviewer of this hotel on this site at the time of writing, I am amazed at the previous six reviews.
Nice Little Hotel
My wife and I stayed in this hotel Oct 1 through Oct 5. I agree with the comments of the other reviewers. We used a 3-day Metro pass for our trips from the hotel. The Radio France RER stop is 2 blocks away. Each night we walked to one of the restaurants in the neighborhood, never more than 6 blocks from the hotel. The only one that disappointed us was the one the hotel recommended. One word of advice; DO NOT use the phone in the hotel for calling the States. My wife made 3 calls: 1 was a no answer call; 1 she left a voice message; and 1 she spoke about 5 minutes. Total bill was over $135. Despite that, we loved the hotel and would ceretainly stay here again.
Great hotel for first visit to paris!
Hotel Eiffel Kennedy is great. Location is perfect for a city break in paris- only 15 mins walk from the eiffel tower. Staff very friendly and breakfast nice. You can pay a lot in Paris for a horrible hotel but eiffel kennedy is reasonably priced and comfortable. The room is quite small but so is every other hotel room in Paris! The bathroom was large and clean. I would definately reccomend this hotel!
Charming with wonderful staff
I just got back from Paris and stayed in the Kennedy Eiffel. This was my 7th trip and if you know Paris and want to stay close to the attractions with a wonderful staff then this is a great deal for the money.
It is in a residential area with no tourist or other hotels around. Which, is great for someone who doesn't want to be surrounded by tourist.
The owner and staff are wonderful people. I had an unfortunate incident on my holiday and their kindness, consideration as well as understanding was wonderful.
Great Value for the money!!
We stayed at the Eiffel Kennedy in February and had a wonderful time. 3 of us shared the "apartment" which is 2 rooms connected together, which had 2 bathrooms(very important for 3 ladies). The rooms are small, but you are only sleeping there, so it really doesn't matter. Our breakfast was included, and was WONDERFUL!! The owners wife prepares it every morning, and she is a great cook and absolutely delightful! Everyone there is super friendly,and you are in walking distance of a bus stop and the metro. It's not luxurious, but was a great value for the money!! Great First experience in Paris!!
we stayed at the Eiffel Kennedy in October 2002. Very nice hotel, not hip, not luxurious, just what you need: a decent, estethic and clean place to stay. Excellent location. Notice that bus no. 72 (which has a halt within walking distance) takes you to nearly all the most famous places, like the Eiffel Tower, Concorde, Tuileries, Louvre, PontNeuf, Notre Dame.... From Ile de la Cite u just walk over to the Latin quarter. No need for lots of fuss and stres in the Metro. For breakfast: Use the cafe just next to the hotel, no use paying a lot for breakfast in the hotel. THis cafe is typical Parisian. Across the street you have a wonderful bakery, and just some yards away from hotel, a small convenience store. Receptionists speak English, almost disappointingly well - you don't get to practice your French!! We will return in April 2004 Nannette&Chris, Oslo
I, too, was concerned about the hotel. Although I read a good review of the place, I was still skeptical because it was very affordable. Good thing I took the risk and stayed in this hotel. The staff can speak English. Trust me, it is very helpful. Everything is within walking distance like the mini statue of liberty and one bus ride to Eiffel tower. It was great! You get to learn the local's way of life because of the surrounding neighborhood. There is a patisserie, a pharmacy, several groceries, restaurant, literally steps from the hotel. The room is small but very clean. The breakfast buffet is great! I highly recommend this place.
Eiffel Kennedy a suprise
We were booked into the Eiffel Kennedy as a part of a package. We had no prior info on the hotel and were a little concerned. What a suprise!
The Eiffell is a great little hotel in a wonderful neighborhood. The front desk staff spoke english and were very helpful with all of our questions. THe room while small was nice and the bathroom was immaculate. Breakfast was in the wine cellar and always good. You are within a 2-3 blokc walkto the bus, metro and literally right behind Radio France. There is a patisserie, charcuterie and little grocery store allwithin 1 block. We recommend this hotel highly to anyone who might consider it.
