How to Get There
I stayed at the Kipling in September and enjoyed myself. Mehdi was very kind. On day one, he even mapped out the different touristy places I can go to. He gave me the best recommendations to restaurants. One morning, I missed breakfast. He ran to get me some croissants so I don’t go hungry.
He had arranged for an alternate taxi at half price because the first taxi left me stranded at the airport. Mehdi is an excellent host. It is like being with a favorite , protective big brother!
The rooms are quaint , European style. I’d have loved a bit more counter space in the bathroom. I did not have table light in my room and it was brought in the next day. I kept the windows open at night. The windows faced the interior. So it was calm. The location near Moulin Rouge and Montmartre was perfect!
We stayed here for four nights. Staff were really nice and helpful. Room pretty small but great view from 5th floor. There’s a cute little sitting area and the breakfast does the job, albeit basic. It’s a great area with good bars and the Moulin Rouge close by.
Downsides were that the shower flooded the bathroom due to no curtain or door.
Would stay again.
This hotel has or claims a four-star rating, I find this very hard to believe. My room was dark, with chipped furniture and a roughed over paint job, and the room had an unpleasing smell emanating from the plumbing. The only plus is the people who staff the hotel, both the reception and the breakfast room, very pleasant and helpful. Personally I also found the immediate neighborhood sleezy with sex shops surrounding the Moulin Rouge.
