Paris: Arrived in the evening and feeling a sense of confidence after successfully navigating the tube in London we decided against a cab and took the Metro in to Paris. We finally found our hotel after a few wrong turns, but we did get our first peek at the Eiffel Tower by night! We dropped off our stuff at Hotel Keppler (kind of shabby-chic …

We board and leave about an hour late but we had given ourselves plenty of time and we gain an hour crossing the channel. We tool along at 300kms an hour and in a little over 2 hours we are at St Pancras in London.

Inside the building was no exception and we enjoyed sitting and taking in the ambience. Still the tourists chose to ignore the multiple 'no flash photography' signs and snap away. I wish I was security in the place.... Would be ejecting them 5 at a ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
