The hotel is very basic and staff are just okay, but what draws me to this hotel is the price and that it is very conveniently located next to Rue Cler street and the Eiffel Tower, which is what we look for. The metro is also a convenient distance away, as well as the post office and some grocery stores....

Great location near Eiffel Tower and Rue Cler. Room was small but clean and reasonably priced. Stayed 14 nights. Very quiet. Front desk was helpful and not intrusive. Bus route 69 ends in front of hotel which is very handy after a long day of site seeing.

Definitely not a fancy or recently updated hotel, but we didn't care about that. Bed was comfy and the shower had good temperature and pressure. You do have to leave the key with the front desk every time you leave, but that is typical. The free wi-fi was good. The location was the best part! This hotel is walking distance...

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...

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,...

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...

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...
