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).
A very unsafe hotel!
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.
The hotel cleaning personal robed us!
We went to take the breakfast at the hotel facility one morning and my wife make the mistake to leave the purse in the room.
The hotel has a safe in the room but is so small that even the airline ticket must be fold in order to fit inside. We are usual afraid of thefts from outside but being at the 4th floor we didn't think that something bad could happen that morning.
So, when I come back from the breakfast, I notice that our door was unlocked, but didn't see anything moved in the room. Only until my wife looks at her purse, the zipper was in other position and when she looks inside notice that 50 Euro are missing from the wallet. We have just counted the money a night before so we know that for sure.
I made a complain at the hotel desk and the clerk call for the cleaning lady who had the other key of the rooms (a white woman which is also the cleaning personal chief). She admit that she had all that time the other key but with a big contemptuous smile asked us if we see her coming out from our room. So you have no proof, she said!
The Police take us a declaration but this was only for the hotel assurance company which by the way will not give us the money back because we had a safe in the room and our complain is not accepted.
This hotel has a very well organized thief crew, and I think they are doing this daily, because they are taking only small bills thinking that the tourists will not notice the missing. It should be some one at the breakfast room who is checking the tourists while the other person is operating in the room.
I'm very sure that the police are not making any investigations so the thefts are still working in that place at this moment. Also the hotel manager is a very rude person who is not interested in client satisfaction and he didn't even take time to come to speak with us. So, I advice you to stay away of this hotel!
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.
Do Not stay at this hotel under any circumstance
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.

Today we met with our friend Alban who travelled from his hometown of Lyon to meet us. First we walked to Notre Dame cathedral which was two minutes from our hotel. The inside was beautiful with a huge stained glass windows. Next we stopped at a local cafe for coffee and croissants (Alex was dying for caffeine!) We then walked through the streets of St Germain to Ladurée for coffee, tea, ...
... for dinner, and had spaghetti bolognese (salad for me) followed by gāteau ganache. On the way back, we stopped at the supermarket and bought water and snacks. The tap water here tastes pretty unsavoury! It’s Lauren’s (also from Aquinas) and Anneke’s (another New Zealander from Devonport) birthday, so we gathered (or tried to gather!) in Lauren’s room for unwrapping before turning ...
... its magic on us and reminded us that we really are cultural neophytes, we needed to take stock and reflect on the hours passed. A trip on the Seine again was just the trick before we found a cafe near Notre Dame for a really late lunch.
For dinner we cruised the shops for cheese, bread, antipasto and cider. Heaven - a room with a view and supper for two.
Tomorrow we will either bring ourselves into the 19th century at the Musee ...
... was coming, why not give them the room I'm moving to? Anyway, the upgrade is a bigger bed, but I preferred my old one. It was off to the side, so was very quiet and adorable. This one is nice, but apparently lumberjacks are staying above me. And the bed is much harder. Anyway, in my new room, I wring out my jeans in the shower, then take a shower and lie on the bed. My legs, feet and back are aching and I'm tired. I watch a John Wayne movie and fall asleep for a ...
Some of the things that strike about this city -
- I've eaten nowhere where crockery isn't broken by accident - maybe a good business for someone. The waiters carry so much they inevitably drop and smash something. Becoming the expectation as well as regular entertainment!
- the smoking does my head in. The cigarettes are strong and really smelly and they love to share by blowing it right at you. While they don't smoke inside the restaurants the doors are all open ...
