... soak up some of the Parisian family atmos. Cute kid was very busy watering the grass filling her bucket from the fountain water.
After the Ferris Wheel I wandered up the Champs Elysees. There is currently a Christmas street market at the Tuileries end and it was fantastic! I got my roasted chestnuts (I managed to get a photo of that one!).As I was walking down the ususal street part I got to use my French on a very impertenant young lady collecting for charity. They sucker in people saying "Do you speak English" Then ask you to sign a "petition", but it's not a ...
Croissants and pain aux chocolat for breakfast, and we worked out how to use the Nespresso machine in the apartment. And then we headed off – getting lost getting to the metro station. We asked someone – which was very funny, as she knew she had seen the metro sign, but couldn't recall where. We kept walking and eventually saw the sign and the woman we had asked was next to it yelling out to ...

But Jacks and I didn't worry because no one else seemed bothered either. They do strange things in Paris...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jardins d'Eiffel Paris
Cozy comfortable hotel
We recently spent 5 nights at Les Jardins des Eiffel located near the Eiffel Tower. The room was small and clean and faced the street which is really a side street. The complimentary continental breakfast was excellent. Staff was pleasant but could be more helpful. Street noise at night was occasionally an issue. Bathroom is tiny but functional. Very limited closet space.
Great Place for Romance
I stayed here on my honeymoon and was very happy with the service and the hotel. The room was small but clean and brightly decorated. The staff was not overly friendly nor rude. The breakfast buffet was fresh and well stocked. Best of all, the street was quiet as was the inner courtyard (garden).
I highly recommend the hotel for serious tourists who prefer to stay in french hotels while in Paris (rather than an American hotel in France).
Jardins D'Eiffel is a hotel with a good location (some rooms have a nice view to the tower), but unfortunately is not a safe place to stay in Paris.
We stayed in one of the older rooms. It was ok. The newer rooms may be better. However, we had access to a roof top deck and had excellent view of the Eiffel Tower. We could watch the light show on the Eiffel Tower every night from our bed. The hotel was about four blocks walking distance from the Eiffel Tower with many cafes on the way.
Just do not even think about staying here. The hotel owner/manager has to be the most rude obnoxious individual that you could ever dream of meeting. Because I did not get allocated the room that I had booked & paid for I requested to be moved. The ladies on the recption were happy to do so!! At 1.10am at night I was woken up by a man screaming at me demanding to know why i was in the wrong room. Next morning I expalined what had happened & the lady was really apologetic. When I returned from dinner later that night the same man was on the reception. I asked for an apology & this inbelivable torrent of abuse was let loose. As I was only staying one more night Ijust couldn't wait to get away from his threatening behaviour. Guess what there he was again the next morning. I asked for my bill & noticed he had overcharged me. He told me I had no other choice than to pay up & if I didn't he was going to call the police!!. He actually locked the doors to the hotel. my taxi was waiting for me & I was running late so I had no other choice. BE WARNED. This man is seriously disturbed.
Good views but thats about it!
We had one of the best views in the hotel directly facing the eiffel tower, which was good. The hotel staff were not very pleasant, at check in they didnt tell us anything just room number and breakfast times and we felt that they just wanted to get rid of us as quickly as possible. We were only told on the final night of our stay that you were supposed to give the key to reception every time you left the hotel and the guy seemed very rude as though we had done something wrong but we were never told. We felt that they were not helpful at all unlike what we had read in the hotel website.
I went to Paris in July 2001 and stayed here. I thought the hotel was lovely and the staff friendly. They spoke broken English which was a nice break from the rudeness I got from almost every other French person I spoke to in English (I tried French but it just wasn't working!). They were very helpful with things such as where to book train tickets, how to get places, what means what in French etc. The breakfast's were delicious and the rooms nice for the great price.
Loved having air conditioning during the heat wave! We arrived at 7am from the airpost and they had a room ready for us an hour later while we sat in the lovely fairly quiet waiting area with a drink. Great experience overall thanks to lovely staff.
