Its a very nice location, near Military Station (subway). It worth to pay for the breakfeast, simple but good Croissant, orange juice, jelly, butter. The room was clean and suitable for two. I rate as a 8. It worth.

The only thing good about this hotel is the location. You can walk to Eiffel as and when you want to. Also its close to ecolai militaire metro station. So commuting within Paris gets easier. The room is over as soon as you walk in. At max it 'll accomodate 2 big bags of yours. There is only one plug... More

This was our third visit to Paris and we were happy to book far enough in advance to get rooms at the Kensington. Perfectly located and “nice enough” for a short stay when the hotel room is needed only for sleeping. We booked the larger rooms in the back, still small by USA standards, but we were not bumping over... More

Hotel Kensington offers very good value for a Paris hotel. The location is extremely convenient: it's near the Eiffel Tower and the Seine (great for evening walks); there's a nearby Metro station (Ecole Militaire) and a RER station (Pont de l'Alma on the C line, perfect for getting out to Versailles); and the Rue de Grenelle/Rue Cler shopping district is...

Have just returned from 3 night stay. First time I have stayed in a 2 star hotel but wasn't disappointed. Rooms and bathroom kept very clean (clean bedding and plenty of towels I'm happy) 5 mins away from Eiffel Tower. Some great coffee shops nearby and supermarket. Would definitely return again. The only thing I would change would be having... More

Situated very close to the Eiffel tower and to a metro station, this hotel offers the basics necessary for a short stay, i.e. long weekend - clean enough, reasonable price (even cheap for Paris and this location), great location. Don't expect anything posh. Small rooms, small bathrooms, but relatively clean. Book well in advance.

The hotel is very close to Eiffel, in very beautiful street. Excellent location to stay in the centre of Paris. The room was very tiny but cozy. The staff was very friendly. The price was not that expensive because it was booked in advance, so it the hotel is perfect choice for short stay in Paris!

Very clean, mostly friendly staff. Our room was more than adequate and the bathroom was quite large. The location is incredible with subway and bus stops nearby. But you can walk 15 minutes to all the great sights - the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and just two blocks to the lovely Rue Cler. So many wonderful restaurants just... More

This is a great little hotel, at a very convenient rate -approx 100 $- located at the very heart of Paris, near Eiffel Tower and Motte-Picquet metro station. Staff is great and helpful, rooms are tidy, wi-fi is free and fast... What else do you need? Oh yeah, the rooms are not very big... but the bathroom is fine. Didn't... More
