Hotel have amazing location to reach Eiffel Tower. Few min walk. Another few min till metro station. Rooms are very very small and average. Good point is they have just refresh the rooms, our room had a new furniture. Toilet and shower was very poor. We overpaid due to high peak of Ester break.

+ The only thing good about this hotel is the location. You can walk to Eiffel as and when you want to. + Good WIFI connection - Rude staff (except of blond short hair woman). During the checking the woman was phoning 15 minutes and don't care about me. - After I got the card, I asked about safe box....

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...

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.
