Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Jardins d'Eiffel
The Voice of Reason for a Great Value Hotel...from DBFISH
That said, overall this hotel is very, very good. The location is nearly perfect (a small quiet street that meets Rue Ste. Dominique with many fine shops, 2 blocks to Rue Clerc: a street with open-air markets and shops
INCLUDING a cheese shop called La Fermette that will rock your world with
it's fine selections), only a 10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower IF you have the willpower not to window-shop.
The staff were all very pleasant and they were as helpful as possible when
handling my questions, etc. NOTE: I speak a little French, and the entire staff at Jardins speak English quite well. We were gracious and so we were
treated wonderfully. HOWEVER: I'm sure that if you are arrogant, pushy
and demanding, you will get the same treatment that bad behavoir will
get you anywhere in the world.
The hotel is NOT NEW, but it is renovated to the most modern standards that common sense and the physical restrictions of a crowded city can bear. There is ONE elevator and it hold a MAXIMUM of 2 people w/ luggage.
100 years ago there was no air conditioning or internet service, so you will occasionally see an afterthought pipe or wire that might visually interrupt a wall or baseboard. They made sensible upgrades without tearing up all the
walls and ceilings!
REQUEST ROOM 401. It is probably the best view of the tower, and we slept with the windows open and felt that the city's night noises were barely noticeable from our room. Take a few seconds to roll the beds 18 inches from the headboard and you can watch the light show of the Eiffel Tower as
you drift to sleep. Rooms are fairly small, but clean. Our room was roughly
10 feet by 11 feet and the bathroom was closer to 5 feet by 6 feet. This room has a fairly small armoire in it rather than a closet. If you have big luggage, the luggage will not comfortably fit in the armoire. Either bring soft-sided luggage that you can store under the bed after you unpack, or ask the hotel to store your empty luggage after you have unpacked.
Although it is offered (and looked popular, judging by the crowd) we did NOT have breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast buffet is coffee, tea, toast,
fruit, muffins, and "boil-them-yourself" eggs for 13 Euros a person. We elected to walk 300 yards to a good modern coffee shop to enjoy coffee and baked goods for 5 Euros each (we wanted to spend more on wine!)
The hotel does NOT have a current relationship with a shuttle service to
Charles de Gaulle Airport. Taxis are approximately 55 Euros each way.
That is not bad for 4 people sharing a cab, but a little steep for 1 or 2.
Train service is available from CDG to the Metro, and there are Metro stops
within 500 yards from the hotel, but after a long flight, we just bit the bullet
and paid for the taxi.
We looked at the prices and lobbies of several other hotels in the area, and the others all seemed too fake and it looked as if they were probably VERY
noisy at night.
I honestly cannot imagine another hotel in the area that can combine such
a level of honest, quiet, quaint lodging with the price we paid.
I fell asleep watching the lights of the Eiffel Tower shining past the wineglasses on the windowsill for 5 nights of perfect weather... not bad.
Excellent bang for the buck!
(I don't work for the hotel, or any travel agency or anything- but I will be glad to offer free, honest advice for your trip if you want to e-mail me.)
Great stayfrom DrJerry
Good spot but the service could be better....from A TripAdvisor Member
Our room was over-priced for what we got though, nothing flash and hence we moved hotels for our next three nights in Paris. Air conditioner + fridge worked well, but the safe was broken.
Only one of the three staff we came across were helpful and this was disappointing because good advice in Paris is essential for budget travelling.
I would stay here again on Bastille Day but not otherwise.
Do not stay at this hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The welcome we received was anything but warm - the receptionist barely looked at us. She didn't tell us anything about breakfast timings, facilities etc.
We booked through an online booking agent, and the voucher was for a double room. However when we checked in, there was no double available and we were given a twin for the first night and told we "can try again in the morning".
Throughout the stay, we found the reception staff to be rude, impolite and very unhelpful.
My credit card company told me the hotel had taken an authorisation on my card, but the hotel refused to acknowledge this. I asked to speak to the manager, but as it was Sunday they said the manager was off and wouldn't even call her for me. They also refused to call the booking agent to try and sort it out.
We weren't able to leave without paying the bill, so we had to pay and were left to sort out the matter when we left the country.
I called the agent and the hotel again the next day. Both the agent, and again the hotel denied that they had taken the authorisation.
I insisted on speaking to the hotel manager, whereupon I was told that she was too busy to deal with this, and instead I had to speak to the Booking Manager. He told me he would investigate and call me back, but he never did.
Mixed reviewfrom A TripAdvisor Member
1. Great location
2. Quiet at night
1. Poor service - we asked to have our safe fixed twice. Assured it would be and not done. Stayed for seven nights - they did not seem to take our request seriously.
2. Outdate- could be a bit more modern
3. Constant key card problems
Would I stay again? Probably not but would def. stay in that same neighborhood.
Great Location - Very Poor Servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
We thought that maybe it was just our experience but after speaking to other guests at the hotel, it seems that nobody had a nice thing to say about the service.
To finish off a bad experience the hotel tried to overcharge us for our stay, when we informed them that we had already paid for the hotel room through our travel agent, they tried to dispute even though they had our travel voucher in their hands!!! They soon realised that they could not charge us and told us to get out with no apology offered.
The city is beautiful and to my surprise most people on the streets are very friendly and helpful, however at all costs avoid this hotel.
lovely view of the Eiffel Towerfrom annelou
oh man...from A TripAdvisor Member
OK, but not greatfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Advantages: the location, air conditioning
Disadvantages: internet access is available but expensive (5 euro for 30 minutes on a clunky connection). They do normally offer wifi but it was not working when I was there.
There are probably better value deals around. Better suited for tourists than business people.
Good hotel in a great location.from Billbr123
Top Local Tips for Paris
Eiffel Tower It was best to go up the Eiffel Tower at night. The queues are much shorter. We waited 40 minutes to go up and during the day the queues were up to 4 hours wait.
Batobus Do Purchase a day or Two day Batobus ticket (it is a hop on hop off boat that travels up and down the Seine) - they stop at eight convenient locations for sightseeing (Louvre, Champs Elysee, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower etc) and run approx every 15 mins. A great way to rest your tired feet and way cheaper than taxi's
Paris: The city of Romance? Paris does have some romantic aspects to it, but its not really the most romantic city I have ever seen. I found Paris quite dirty and a little over-rated in some parts, but really it depends where you are in Paris.
