    Fabulous hotel!


    My sister and I stayed at the Hotel Eiffel-Kennedy May 17th-May 23rd and it was so wonderful! The hotel met and exceeded all of our expectations, as did the area it's located in.

    The room was an average size for European hotels. We were in room 212, in a spacious double bed that was very comfortable, clean and the pillows were great. There is a desk in the room, and under the desk you will find the outlet. The room was very clean as well. The drapes kept the light out and the windows kept the noise out (not that there was much noise, the area was pretty quiet for the most part.) It was great to look out our window every morning and watch people walking their dogs and parents walking their children to school, and then gaze out the window at the Eiffel Tower at night.

    There was an individual air-conditioner in the room that worked great. Just keep in mind it works on Celcius! The TV got CNN and a few French channels.

    The bathroom was very clean. I'm VERY picky about bathrooms and this one was very good. There was a little pipe leakage behind the toilet, but only water. We loved our room too much to say anything, and it was not a big deal at all. The shower had really great water pressure and you could take a bath if you wanted. It wasn't cramped. The hair dryer works - it looks old, and it doesn't have the air pressure that our American blow dryers have, but it gets the job done.

    The walls were a little thin, but that's like every other hotel in France and probably Europe.

    The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. They bid us Bon Jour, Bon Journee, Bon Soir and Bon Nuit whenever we saw them, and were very nice to chat with. When our voltage converter broke and we asked where they could be purchased, the staff brought out a box and tested our products with their own voltage converters until they found one that worked! They let us use it for the rest of the trip free of charge.

    I absolutely adored this hotel. I will stay here again and again!

    Unique Quality: There is free internet on a computer in the lobby. And free Wi-fi access in the hotel rooms. The elevator will hold two people with some bags, or one person with large luggage.

    Under the hotel is Cafe a la Fontaine, it's open until 11:30 (23:30) at night. Their food was really delicious and the staff was very accommodating. Prices were good too. Also under the hotel is a liquor store and a Tabac.

    Across the street is a Bakery (with DELICIOUS chocolate croissants), Butcher, Pharmacy, Convenience Store (open late late late too), ATM, Asian restaurant, and two days a week there is a Market. Down the block a little is the Post Office and a small grocery store. You have everything you need right there!

    The area is quiet and charming. It is only a 5 minute walk to the RER station Pdt du Kennedy, and a 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station Ranelagh. If you walk about 20 minutes up Rue Raynouard to Rue Passy, you will find a Monoprix and Passy Plaza - an indoor mall with a grocery store, Gap, H&M, and Zara among other stores. You can also walk to the Eiffel Tower from the hotel! It takes about 25 minutes - but it's a REALLY REALLY pleasant walk. Take the Allee des Cygnes (Alley of Swans) island on the Seine - which is a pedestrian area - to Pont Bir Hakeim. Cross the street to a lovely rose garden walkway that takes you right to the Eiffel Tower.

    Directions: In the 16th Arrondisement, opposite bank of the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.

    Great Location, Great Staff, Great Price


    Perfectly located close to the Seine, but not surrounded by stifling traffic, the Eiffel Kennedy is a great little hotel with the most helpful staff you could wish for.

    The rooms are a bit on the compact side, but tastefully decorated. They are sound proofed so once the windows are shut, the traffic or street noises are no problem.

    One little gripe would be that the AC unit was a bit ineffective, plus there were no tea or coffee facilities in the room.

    Unique Quality: The staff were great - very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is great too, only a 10 to 15 minute stroll to the Eiffel Tower, close to metro stations and lots of good cafes and restaurants.

Loved the Hotel Eiffel Kennedy

by TripAdvisor Member daisy77

I stayed at the Hotel Eiffel Kennedy for 4 nights in July 2006. I would definitely stay here again. It was a lovely, clean and comfortable hotel. The weather was unbelievably hot in Paris when we went and it was great to come back to our air-conditioned room in the evening. The hotel staff were extremely friendly especially the lady who served the breakfast. She was run off her feet every day but was still very friendly to everybody.

An excellent stay at Hotel Eiffel-Kennedy!!!

by TripAdvisor Member Maltese_family_of_4

We spent 8 unforgettable days at the hotel. On arrival, we received a warm welcome by the friendly staff and were given 2 adjacent rooms as requested. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, they are well air-conditioned and all have a window overlooking the street. The breakfast is not to be missed..it is delicious!!

The hotel is found in a quiet and safe neighbourhood. Opposite the hotel there is a bakery and a butcher, and very close to supermarkets and groceries. Various metro stations are in the vicinity and the Eiffel Tower is a 25-minute walk away (a very pleasant walk). This makes the location excellent!

The thing which impressed us most is the effecient service being offered and the most helpful, english speaking and friendly staff who made our stay an unforgettable one. Thank you Hotel Eiffel Kennedy!

So misrepresented

by TripAdvisor Member TorontoDee

We stayed at the Eiffel Kennedy in Paris August 2006 for two nights. The photos on their website must have been taken on their Grand opening many, many years ago...or else the photo shoot was taken elsewhere. The hotel did not look anything like the photos portrayed on their website. Not even close. Although we were just looking for a little hotel to crash in....we still were hoping to have a wonderful romantic setting. The Eiffel Kennedy is so not that. It is soooo outdated, so in need of some repairs. The bathrooms were at least very clean, which we were greatly for. Although we got the hotel at a cheap price, I now wish we had saved up and stayed at a more well-known hotel chain. If you're looking for a romantic, luxurious, or updated hotel...this is soooo not it. Although the staff were very friendly, I feel they mislead travellers with their website photos. I would not recommend staying at this hotel unless you've been to Paris so many times that you don't care where you stay. This is not the hotel for a first-timer looking for that romantic Paris package. We are a young couple in our early thirties who travel often, for those who are wondering. I hope this review helps travellers.

A brilliant stay

by TripAdvisor Member muminamillion

We stayed at the Eiffel Kennedy in August 2006, having taken ages to choose an hotel on the internet. As we were taking two young children, who had never visited Paris before, we wanted to be very careful to find a place which was family friendly.

The hotel made us all feel very welcome from the moment we first came through the door. We thought we had booked two interconnecting rooms, but as it happened they had already been taken, so we were given two adjoining rooms on the fourth floor, easily accessed by lift, or by a chic spiral staircase, the healthy route. As this level appears to be separated out into separate "spurs", our two rooms were set aside from other pairs of rooms, so it worked well for us - we could leave the doors ajar if necessary and feel very safe and private. One room had a great view of the Eiffel Tower - take a look on the hour once it's dark!

The hotel was very quiet, thanks to the double glazing, and very airy - there was room-controlled air-conditioning if we needed it. The beds were very comfortable, lighting was good, and the minibar useful. There is a convenience store just across the road which sells anything else you might need.

Breakfast was amazing! Anything from eggs and bacon, cooked specially, to toast and jam, with cakes, cereals, fruit, flans, cheese, omelettes, brownies, croissants etc etc, with hot chocolate, good coffee and a selection of teas. It was a real bargain at 10 euros, and a great start to the day. The breakfast room is very charming, and the staff really lovely.

The free internet usage in the reception area was very useful, especially for booking return flights and checking departures.

Cleanliness throughout was superb, with fresh towels and toiletries every day. Reception staff are very friendly and speak excellent English, but will also cope with your bad French!

The neighbourhood is very quiet and unthreatening, and the river is a short walk away. It's easy to walk to the Eiffel Tower too. The transport connections are good, although the closest Metro station was closed while we were there. We walked to the Musee Marmottan in the opposite direction to the city centre too.

Our children enjoyed Paris, but they loved the hotel, and now think that every hotel should be like this one. They loved their room, the luxurious bathrooms and being treated like grown-ups in a special place. We will no doubt be returning, but for now we are left with some very lovely memories.

Great Hotel Great Location

by TripAdvisor Member Idgey

This was our first trip to Paris and we were very pleased with the hotel and the location. We were warmly welcomed as soon as we stepped through the door. The receptionist provided a map and excellent information and travel tips to all the major sites before we even asked. We arrived at midday and our room was ready. The hotel room was very small and the bathroom only had a shower cubicle, which was tiny and no bath. I can imagine that some people would find this a problem, I wasn’t sure that I would fit into the shower, very pleased that I did, Just. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, the sheets and towels perfectly white. The only problem was that it smelt of smoke and we are non-smokers and requested a non smoking room. Reading other reviews it seems that this is quite common in parts of europe. The breakfast was great, a selection of quiche, croissants, breads, yoghurt, cheese, cakes, cereals, butter and jams. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate and fresh juices. Omelette, fried eggs and hams were also offered. Breakfast is served in a small room in the basement, which is, clean and well laid out and self service. All the staff were extremely helpful and polite and we felt very comfortable. Our stay was for one night. The location we felt was great. We arrived by metro from the airport and the hotel is a 3 min walk away. The river and the statue of Liberty are at the bottom of the road and from there you have views of the Eiffel Tower, which is approx 10 min walk. With little time to spare we took the bus to the end of the route next to Notre Dame and the Latin Quarter where we spent the afternoon. From there we took the metro to Monte Marte – Sacre Coeur, pretty streets with artists, Salvador Dahli exhibition, dinner in a lovely restaurant, walked past windmill down to Moulin Rouge then back up to see Sacre Coeur at night and spectacular view. Then took the Metro to Arc De Triomphe and walked down Champs Elysees cutting down George V Street to the river and the views of Eiffel Tower at night. Walked to Eiffel Tower absolutely stunning lit up and then back to hotel. The following day quick bus trip 5 mins to Place De Concorde and then onto the Louvre. Fantastic. To save time we took a cab from the Louvre to a restaurant on Champs Elysee for lunch (5 euros) and then a cab from there to the hotel to pick up our case (6 euro). The taxis are all metered and fairly reasonable and get you to your destination very quickly. As you can tell we didn’t spend a lot of time in the hotel but it suited our needs very well. We will be coming back to finish the Louvre and probably again with our children. We would definitely book the Eiffel Kennedy again for both future trips, but probably request that they air the room.

Lovely, friendly, huge hospitality. You can see all this starting from reception

Nice friendly family hotel

by TripAdvisor Member un bicchiere di vino rosso

My wife and I stayed here from July 25th until the 29th. emails to the hotel prior to visit were quickly answered and provided accurate information ie taxi to hotel from CDG airport about 40 euros was spot on. Reception is very friendly and the room, number 212, was smallish but perfectly adequate. I had opted for the option of a cheaper rate with room allocated on arrival. The wardrobe was slightly awkward as when the door was open it blocked access into the bathroom so we required some co-ordinated moves while washing and dressing in the morning.

The room is beautifully air conditioned and was a god send in the extremely hot weather at the time 40 degrees one day. As it was our wedding aniversary I had asked the hotel to provide flowers and champagne on arrival and they provided the most beautiful bouquet of 18 roses in the room follwed by the champagne on ice a few minutes later, wonderful.

Because the hotel is on a corner the room shapes and layout vary and this included differences between rooms on different floor levels. Our room did have a view of the Eiffel Tower and each room has flowers outside the window and a blind that can be lowered and raised to provide shade. The double glazing is extremely effective and kills traffic noise completely.

The staff could not be more helpful and the location is fine with a number of restaurants near by which are not touristy. Ranelagh is problably the closest metro station and you also have the number 72 bus which takes you right into the centre of Paris via many attractions. A carnet of metro tickets just over 10 euros for 10 tickets can be used on the bus as well as the metro, very handy.

The breakfast room is small, holding around 20 people but the lady operating it kept on top of things so if you did have to wait for a table it was not very long. You can go elsewhere and have breakfast out but you would be missing the wonderful home made food on offer.

A very enjoyable few days in Paris and I would be happy to return to this hotel any time.

It's in a nice area and convenient for sightseeing. You could check reviews on Tripadvisor; they are associated with Virtual Tourist and have reviews on nearly every hotel with a web site. http://www.tripadvisor.com

Have a great trip.
