- The Characters in the painting
1. Napoleon I (1769–1821), is standing, dressed in coronation robes similar to those of Roman emperors. Others are merely passive spectators. In the actual painting it is possible to see the outline of what was originally painted: Napoleon holding the crown above his ...
... bed is definitely calling. It's just after 5pm now, so I guess that's not too bad. Considering that I haven't had any real solid sleep sice 5am on the 3rd (and I didn't really sleep the night before because I was so excited. My Computer clock tells me that it's currently just after 3 am on the 5th back in Australia. Heaven help me.
I know that this isn't my best work. I'll probably read this entry tomorrow and scream "What was I thinking!" Vive la France!
... sights. Padlocks on bridges. Special carparks where electric cars were charging, stalls along the side of the river selling art, books, junk (but cool French junk), cops on bikes in tight shorts and stab (bullet?) proof vests). We came across Marie Curie's house at one point. The money living in some of the houses was obvious.

We started off in Walt Disney Studios, the smaller of the two parks, and headed straight for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, the tallest building in the park, taking you up an elevator shaft and free fall dropping you faster than the speed of gravity. Nat was terrified (not a free fall fan) but we survived. I was actually a fraction disappointed it dropped you in stages rather than all of the way. Here ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Keppler Paris
North central Paris
The Keppler is a fine little hotel within walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. The room was small and neat, and on the whole the hotel was fairly forgetable, apart from the nice bar.
However, you don't go to Paris for the hotel. The location makes it a great base for exploring the city, and it very close to a metro station. It was also pretty good value for its location.
I would recommend it to anyone who is going for a weekend on a smallish budget, who is interested in the city rather than the decor.
Excellent trip and great value for money
the position of the hotel keppler is perfect for visiting all the sights of paris.we would definately stay here again. rooms a bit dated but closing soon for renovation i believe.very clean and staff helpful.
excellent value for money.
room with a view worth the extra.
only disappointment was breakfast...avoid....go round the corner to the bakery and have a much better experience.
Absolutely loved it
We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights in May 2005 at Hotel Keppler. Although Hotel Keppler may not be located in the most character filled neighbourhood (e.g Montmatre), it was still incredibly beautiful, safe and convenient. It was within easy walking distance of the Arc de' Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and tube stations. One downside about the location was the lack of restaurants and supermarkets nearby, we could only find one small local store that had some fruit and vegetables and other basics. A huge plus for us was that we could negotiate the price of the room. Other positives about the hotel include it's general cleanliness, friendly staff and character -it had a beautiful winding staircase and traditional French doors and windows. Only negative about the room were the sheets which had a stain and a hair on them. This didn't put us off, we would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here in a room with a view for around 100 Euros/night.
Pros: Hotel Keppler has a great location. It's right next to Champs-Elysee. It's old, but the facilities are well-maintained and it's very clean. The staff speaks English.
Cons: The rooms are not air-conditioned so that's something to watch out for if you're traveling in the summer. There is always a person at the front desk, but the doors seem somewhat flimsy.
I stayed at the Hotel Keppler with my husband and son for 3 nights in April and was pleasantly surprised. While I expected the room to be small, like most European hotels, it was actually quite comfortable. The triple room had two twin beds (pushed together) and a chair that opened up into another twin bed. I found the hotel to be exceptionally clean and well maintained, on a quiet side street. A walk to the end of the street, a left and then a right brings you right to the Arc de Triomphe. The only negative was that the bathroom was unusually small and, I believe, was actually a portopotty once inside. It was the same plastic walls, etc. that you get in a portopotty, but it had a shower and, once again, was incredibly clean. We really didn't mind it too much because it was clean and functional and provided us with a few laughs. The English speaking staff is friendly, while not obtrusive. I would definitely stay here again and found it to be above my expectations of a two star.
The mattress was too hard and old and we really missed a minibar. Also the metro station was not as near as we thought. The good part is that they accept traveller's checks (in euros, of course). The staff was helpful.
A great little 2-star
We have been to Paris a number of times over the past few years and stayed at a number of different hotels... this is the only one I have returned to stay at. For me the most important thing is context - Paris is an expensive city for hotels, and you tend to get what you pay for. Hotel Keppler markets itself as a 2-star but it is certainly better than some of the 3-star (and even "4-star") establishments we have stayed at.
It has some fundamental pluspoints for an English-speaking tourist. I found the staff friendly and accommodating, and willing to speak English. The neighbourhood is quiet, but within 10 minutes walk of the Champs Elysees (closest metro is Charles V) and it is safe - no strange characters lurking around like you get around the Gare du Nord area..! The rooms are a decent size by Parisian standards, though not very big. Most importantly, they are clean albeit a bit dated ... a bit like staying at your grandmother's place..!
BUT ... I would only use this hotel on two conditions ... only if it's not the heat of summer, or to stay in a street-facing room. The reason is that there is no air conditioning in the rooms (hence it's not a problem in winter) but in the heat of summer if you stay in one of the rooms surrounding the central courtyard, it acts as a funnel for noise ... and with windows open to keep the room cool, it's the cleaning ladies at 6am that wake you ... or that person who arrived back at the hotel at 3am and started chatting to her friend ...
A great hotel, but get a street-facing room - it's a side-street and it's quiet!
The price is right for the neighborhood
But I think some opinions of this hotel might depend on whether you opt for the "rooms with a view" aka "higher priced" (they even use a different elevator!...other side of the building) The lesser room I had for 95 E was adequate, larger than expected, teeny TV attached to the wall, bathroom o.k. but water pressure and temperature tricky.
Warm welcome, staff pleasant, and maid service for a 2 star very good. Location is Okay but not alot of close dinner choices without spending a bundle esp. in January when walking is not as pleasant. And the nearest metro's are not that near once again when the weather is not great. Ironically one of the reasons I choose to try it this time of year is because they don't have air conditioning but the area is prone to chilly hills and wind in the colder months.
If you are looking for a bargain, you're probably better off in another neighborhood. Otherwise spring for one of the better rooms, still cheap by Paris standards, and enjoy the 16th ambiance! Wouldn't recommend for a first Paris trip unless you must be near the Champs and expensive shopping!
New Year's Eve in Paris
A small, comfortable hotel within easy walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysee and the Eiffel Tower. The staff were efficient and interested, which added to the personality. Amazingly quiet for its location. Worth requesting a room with a view - the Eiffel Tower - which could be seen from our small balcony. No trouble recommending this hotel and are looking forward to returning ourselves. Suggest visiting the Baccarat Showroom which is only a couple of blocks away - the crystal chandeliers are superb - even in the washroom!
