Rooms were small but expected that in Paris and good value for the money. Just a great location so close to Eiffel Tower and the Metro. Very nice neighbourhood with services nearby. Breakfast not included but did purchase it as were short on time. Fresh but not a lot of options but typical for Paris. Would go back though as... More

I stayed at the Kensington in September. I had a single on the top floor. I had to go to the lobby to use the wi-fi. The bed took up about half of the floor space - so this may not be a hotel for everyone. But the location is great. It is within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower,... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Kensington. The location is excellent--close to the Metro and to the Eiffel Tower. We loved the neighborhood. We walked over to Rue Cler for picnic fixings and then over to the Eiffel Tower to enjoy the view several times during our stay. The staff were friendly and courteous. The hotel was small, but clean... More

It's a great, little budget hotel, few steps from Eiffel tower, great for a short stay in Paris and night walking. Choice of restaurants nearby, small rooms. There is a place to leave a baggage, use computer, print. Very good relation cost / quality. Staff very helpful, choice of maps in the lobby.

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
