... time, Paris was heralded throughout the world as a cosmopolitan city of luxury and fresh ideas. The 600+ works displayed in the exhibit re-create the atmosphere of the Belle Époque period in Paris, and include paintings and other works of art, costumes, posters, photographs, films, furniture, jewelry and sculptures. The layout and flow of the exhibit are very well done, and the creatively-designed lighting techniques provide a subtle ...
... Tower. Everyone was excited and, although keen to get a closer look, were we desperate to get to our hotel and drop off our bags.
Mike, keen to see some more of the “lesser visited” parts of the city took everyone on another adventure to find the hotel. He knew the general direction so we headed that way…stopped…walked again…stopped…asked someone…they didn’t know but pointed us to a possible ...
... Once the tour was finished, we got to smell some of the different perfumes. If we wanted to buy anything, it was at factory price. Awesome! What about that budget again? Oops.
After cracking out my credit card, I headed back to Maxim's for the tour. There were quite a few French people this time, I think I was the only foreigner. I was also the youngest by about 15 years. I'm really lucky to have stumbled across this as not many people can actually say that they've ...

... We had a similar experience at the Palais de Versailles, where the crowds matched the outsized ego of the Sun King, Louis IV, whose image in the form of paintings and sculpture can be found around every corner. When we arrived with our on line tickets in hand we were greeted by the biggest line up we have every seen. It snaked up and down the gigantic square in front of the palace gates. That was a two hour wait, with the extra stress of fighting off que ...

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.
