          Historical Traveler Reviews Eiffel - Kennedy Hotel Paris

          First time in Paris. Last time in the Eiffel Kennedy!!!!!!


          Below average!!!

          Must agree with the review below. We have just got back from the Eiffel Kennedy. (13 & 14 Oct) The hotel looked ok from the outside. When we got to the room, the first thing we spelt in the tiny room was the stale cigarette smoke. I'm really not against the smell of smoke but this was unreal. We turned the heating up and opened the windows all the time. But it didn't really work. The day we left it was just as bad!

          The guy at the reception was quite a nice man. Although very disappointed in his recommendation of restaurants. Must have been the same one of the other reviews. (LA ROTONDE) If you are going to stay here. Find somewhere nice to eat. Apart from my wife getting food posioning, the food was just eatable!

          He must get free meals or something for recommending it!

          So to sum my first visit up of this hotel. paid 95.00 stg per night. Very much a 1 star hotel!!

          Oh yes I forgot to mention. Don't pay for bed & breakfast unless you like stuff like jam sponge and cakes for breakfast!

          Awful eiffel kennedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


          As the seventh reviewer of this hotel on this site at the time of writing, I am amazed at the previous six reviews.

          The Eiffel Kennedy that myself and two friends stayed in for four nights just gone, was nothing like their website, nor the previous reviews described.

          I found the hotel through searching Tripadvisor. We booked a triple room back in April 2004. The website showed some very nice and appealing pictures of the accomodation. The only one that stands out as being true from my stay, was the picture of the keyring that your room key is kept on!!

          We were in Paris for a World Cup soccer match between France and Ireland.

          We paid €130 per night for our room. It had three single beds crammed into a really tiny room. Two of the beds were the same size, but the third was much smaller! The bathroom was clean and a decent size. The hotel is meant to be a ten minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. In reality it was a good 20 minutes. You could see the Tower from the bedroom, but given it's size, that's not saying much for the hotel location.

          As a regular traveller to hotels across the USA, Britain and Ireland, I can safely say that the EK was the worst ever. It bills itself as a 3 star hotel. In comparison to the 3 star properties I have stayed in in the past, it's more like a single star property.

          I found the website misleading when I looked at the photos displayed on it, compared to what I actually saw during my stay there.

          The satellite TV advertised was music channel MTV (in German!!), BBC World News and CNN. All other channels showing were French. No Sky Sports like so many other hotels have available.

          Upon checking out, the male receptionist 'forgot' that we had already paid the first night's accomodation back in April of this year, when he was calculating the bill. Good job I had my printed receipt with me. He also asked me if we had taken anything from the minibar!! I said no, as we had not, but wondered how amateur this system was for keeping track of the contents.

          I guess I should have known that things were not going to be good when the receptionist, upon our arrival, laughed when she saw our three suitcases and told us that Paris hotel rooms were tiny. She was correct, as we had to keep one of the suitcases in the wardrobe, one in the bathroom and one at the hotel room doorway. Thank God there was no emergency situations that may have needed us to leave the room swiftly.

          I could not recommend this property at all. I hope you do better than we did should you decide to stay their.

          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!!

          Decent, conveniently situated, clean hotel


          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

          Highly Recommended


          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.

          We took a day tour to Versailles, the palace of the Sun King Louis XIV, principally to see the gardens as we missed those on our last visit in 2008. Palace of the Sun King would seem appropriate as it was 35 degrees and very uncomfortable in the gardens. Fortunately there was a lot of shade in which to keep out of the sun but that is where it was 35, in the sun was much warmer.
          I booked the tour through France Tourisme to acquire skip the line tickets. The booking included skip ...

          ... at the front door. Inside the merchandise is located around the walls, often in glass cabinets and the middle of the store is an open void with stairs to each level. The only lighting is behind the clothes at the wall so it is rather dark. There was pumping music and perfume in the air. It felt more like a night club than a shop.
          This experience was closely followed by Sephora which was the beauty section of Myers or Dj's on steroids. ...
