This hotel was very rude to me on the phone and wouldnt refund or even partial refund a room when I cancelled it with 5 months notice in a time they will have no issue getting the room rebooked (July). I had a medical emergency and they didn't care. The only option when booking was nonrefundable. Do not book with them beware. They are uncaring and unkind and only care about money.

ATROCIOUS. I called the receptionist (Nader), a few days before arrival (in perfect French) to explain about one of our guests in two rooms arriving earlier than us. His response, in French: “yes but what is your question”. Perfect example of Parisian hostility versus hospitality. Next: our guest arrives at 1600, is not allowed into her room even though it was past check-in time, and her room isn’t “ready” says “Nader” with no apology. Our guest leaves her luggage with the hotel and they send her luggage to the wrong room!!!!! Again, no apology but only Parisian arrogance. Beautiful city, horrible customer service unless you pay for the George V hotel. Please do not ever step foot in this terrible tourist trap of Paris - and certainly not the Kipling Hotel - unless you have no expectation of service or you are wealthy enough to buy courtesy.

It is a nice looking hotel and very conveniently located. Good for travellers who come in from Gare du Nord! The Parisian man who greeted me for check-in was very interesting and hearing him explain the amenities of the hotel in his Paris accent was a highlight. The rooms were comfortable. I did not get a balcony, which would have been epic. The location is great! Lots of bars around and good food! Breakfast was continental. I personally am not a fan of continental breakfast! Which continent is my question!? But the croissants were fresh! Each room had a Nespresso machine, which is a delight! The shower was excellent. The water pressure was a surprise and it soaked the bathroom and hallway floor. Maybe Poseidon was mad that day at me like he was with Oddyseus! They have this towel heater in the bathroom which is a French thing. I inquired with the receptionist and couldn't believe I never seen one in my life! It makes the bathroom warm! Which is good, especially on a cold winter day! I have two complaints. The elevator was always blocked with vacuum cleaners multiple times to transport towels. But stairs are good for the heart, maybe they were looking out for me! My second complaint is I was constantly asked what my room number was. I am a very unique looking client during my stay! Night receptionist was interesting. If I were to go back, I would most likely stay there again. Also when googling your hotel name, its in Chinese for some reason. I forgot how to read Mandarin!

Had an amazing time spending 4 nights at this lil hotel in. Fantastic location within 2-3 minute walk to the moulin rouge right up the street. The neighborhood is buzzing and there is always something to see and do. Also close to all the major attractions weather by walking or a short taxi ride. Hotel staff was amazing. Very friendly and helpful. Had a few different ones while I was there and they were all equally warm and welcoming. Bed was a nice size and very comfortable. Cons: no fridge in the room No drinking water in room (free water was available in the lobby) No iron for clothes Toilet was very tiny. Like unusually tiny and the light inside didn’t work so I had to keep the door open when I would use the toilet. (The actual shower is separate )

The staff was amazing, super helpful and very professional. The service was also amazing. The location is great. The only issue we had was the size of the rooms. We could not open the door completely because the bed was behind the door and our suitcase didn't fit on the floor next to the bed properly because the room was too small. Also, my partner said the room was a bit too dusty in comparison to what we could expect for such a place. The decoration was great though and the location is also very good.

Due to a mix-up with our Airbnb, we had to book a place to stay last minute in Paris. We booked late at night and still were able to secure a room with a comfy bed. Staff are friendly and the continental breakfast was good. The hotel itself is in a very walkable area and close to metro stations, restaurants, and other shops. The rooms also feature air conditioning. Overall we had a good stay at this hotel. Plus we enjoyed the complimentary evening wine and snacks in the lobby. Yum!

Great hotel, double glazed windows meant it was very quiet, location was great, 100m from Moulin Rouge, great variety at breakfast, free coffee and tea in reception throughout the day, modern spacious bathroom. Rooms are small but expected for Paris hotel. Also pod coffee machine in room was appreciated.

Three friends in 3 single rooms and each one perfect. Adequate size wise, very comfortable large single beds with lovely linen, bed has a socket and light switches in the head board, great bathroom with shower and toiletries. Big wardrobe, full length mirror, kettle,tea,coffee, desk and seat and Air Con. Our rooms were on different floors all with a courtyard views so we had very little noise. Water, coffee, tea also available in reception. This quirky hotel with its unusual decor is a 5 min walk from Moulin rouge and it has a bus stop right outside, the 68 bus takes you down and across the seine, we used it most days. We didn't take breakfast but it is available. Staff all very helpful and obliging. I would definitely stay here again as just in a perfect location.
