... by the time we joined it was about 12. We were wondering if it would be worth it. There was a guy in front of us who had been there before and said that it was worth it. So we resigned ourselves for the wait. We wouldn’t be getting to the sewers, which apparently aren’t that exciting anyhow. Mike and Kyria went off to get some breakfast as they hadn’t had anything while we waited in the line. Then when they got back we swapped over.
... my first 3 hours than it did the entire month I've been here! More than rainy Ireland and England! I got lucky with the metro and surprisingly found my stop on the first try... Ok... I lied... I had the directions screen shot on my phone and was looking at that... Not going to repeat my past mistakes! It was probably my first time actually finding everything on the first time. Usually, it takes a few circles around the block. The hostel is located in an ...
Today marks the last full day we'll have on this continent, where we've spent the last four weeks in complete and total awe of how precious little we know about the rest of the world. The difference between the last 36 hours and all the days that came before it is that we had the absolute pleasure of getting lost in Paris with Zackie, Wajzma, and Madina for the second day in a row. We had a lot on our plate today, and Wajzma and Madina stayed ...
... fast as possible with 10 minutes to spare. It was 11.30 by the time we got back to the accommodation and I was exhausted. However, with the possibility that I will miss my international flight I was anxious to book a flight ASAP! I booked the flight from Paris to London and slept peacefully knowing I wouldn't be stressed in the ...
... you call it), a long hallway with beautiful chandeliers. There was also a library and museum that you could explore. It would be so cool to actually see a show here. When I was done visiting the Opera, I walked around for a bit, and checked out some of the shops. Then, I caught the train back to Ide's place. Tomorrow, I will be exploring the city with Cristine, and another sister who is visiting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carofftel Gobelins Paris
Basic ammenities but very good value for the money.Extremely clean. Hotel was recently renovated. Rooms are comfortable and so is the matress.Clean towels every day.Bathroom has heater and hair blower.Three bus lines stop across the hotel.The owner, Christine is an excellent host and gracious lady, full of French charm and warmth. She speaks perfect English. The staff is also very accomodating. Famous Rue Moffetard is just two blocks away, excellent bakeries, fruit stands, grocery store,etc right on that street, is a colurful street market. Very entertatinig seating at a cafe and just watch the locals going about their daily activities.
A lovely budget hotel in a good part of Paris. Convenient transport links (though the closest metro, Gobelins was closed for renovation when I stayed there, the nearest was only a few hundred metres). The nearby buses will take you to places like the Musee d'Orsay and Luxembourg Gardens. Fabulous market and shopping street, rue Mouffetard is only a minute or so away on foot.
excellent value in a non-touristy neighborhood, clean.....but we did have to beg for another petit bar of soap! Staff helpful.....we had a room with a balcony from which we could see up & down the street & all the way to the Pantheon.....Moufftard & it's outdoor market nearby as well as some wonderful patisseries & boulangeries
Good Value and Excellent Location
I stayed at the Carofftel Gobelins over Thanksgiving break and would stay there again. The hotel is basic but spotless; and literally two blocks from the Moffetard Market (a strip of restaurants, bakeries, cafes and other shops). It is also very convenient for buses that take you directly to the Musee d'Orsay and the Le Marais. The neighborhood brasseries are also way above average; I ate at the Brasserie Gobelins two nights in a row because the food was so good.
Nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed at Carofftel Gobelins this September. This was our first trip to Paris and I would definitely return. The hotel is conveniently located near a pedestrian friendly street market, metro stops as well as numerous cafes. The staff was very accommodating (maps, local knowledge) and spoke English well (much better than my French). If I had any complaints, it would be that the shower is very small. It didn't bother us, but other (larger) people might find that a useful piece of information.
