... up the stairs...no surprise there....

Per the online suggestion, once we hit the second level we went straight for the elevator to the top floor and...NO LINE UP!!! We made it to the top basically without waiting in line at all.

Did you know - the Eiffel Tower was originally built as a temporary structure? They only decided to leave it assembled when it became a popular tourist attraction!

A perfect visit ...

Afterward, Daniel had picked out a restaurant to go to. I think I saw that it had been a Michelin restaurant. I think we spent 2 hours at lunch, but it was lovely to be out of the rain, and the food was delicious.

The evening was quiet. We went back to the hotel, I took a soaking bath and relaxed, and we had a delicious dinner at the hotel restaurant.

... and headed back to our hostel where we packed up our belongings and set our alarms for 3:30am to head to our second destination for Fall Break! We got in our taxi van at 4am and headed to the airport, where I got stopped in security and was embarrassed beyond belief for reasons I will not talk about. We waited around for several hours (you know how airports can be), ate some breakfast, and boarded our flight to Barcelona, Spain!

... in real life will impress or disappoint... this one definitely impressed. After all the touring, we were spent. We headed back to the apartment to cook dinner. Tonight we would be eating one of our usual, salmon and potatoes. I did some of the prep, but Dmitriy did all the rest. The dinner was very good, especially considering the tools we had to work with. I didn't sleep well the night before, so we called it an early ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel des Gobelins Paris

    Pretty good

    from

    Nice hotel and friendly staff. Room was a bit dingy. Breakfast room small and crowded. Breakfast is very basic. Location is not as close to Rue Mouffetard as one would believe, and the area is a bit away from things, but all in all good value for money.

    Its just just a perfect stay

    from

    We condidered our room comfortable, elegant and clean, small but adequate; but then unless you pay a fortune, all rooms in Paris are small. The only quibble I have is the description of the room as air conditioned when an old clunky fan was all that was provided!!

    The area the hotel is located in is quiet and elegant, which I was really pleased about.

    The breakfast is lovely - inclusive- and has a good choice for Paris - a lovely bonus. The staff are great and helped us a great deal.

    There is a super cafe next door on the left where we spent a great deal of time and fabulous restaraunts in easy distance at the Rue des Gobelins - where the metro is located.

    Go to the parc de Luxenburg - free and really Parisien.

    Friendly staff

    from

    Stayed here the last week of August 2005 with my husband.Booked through Eurostar website after checking Tripadvisor reviews. Very pleased with service, staff friendly, receptionists spoke English and were chatty. Location good, though noisy in the morning,Blvd. St. Marcel main route into centre. Room small, but clean, no air conditioning rather a large fan and free ice! Only one small niggle, shower attachment broken so head wouldnt stay high on riser bar, apparently due to staff holiday and couldn't be mended in the time we were there, (Mon-Fri). Over all good value and contintental breakfast included.

    Quiet and comfortable bed!

    from

    My wife and I stayed at Le Grand Hotel for 3 nites for 110 EUR/nite. Room was small but clean. Bathroom was newly renovated and had good water pressure in the shower. Bed was very comfortable. There was a small elevator by North American standards.

    Breakfast was not included in our price. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the Metro (Les Gobelins) A supermarket is a 2 minute walk. I would say the location okay given the Metro is close by. Internet is a 10 minute walk and hotel will provide directions. The hotel host in the day is very fluent in English. Nightime staff is friendly but their english is more limited.

    Need some change

    from

    The guy at the front desk needs a shower and a rasor. The hotel has a safety box that runs only during the day and is not safe. I didn`t fit in the shower case (yes, was a new bathroom with a glas case for the shower).

    There is no place for more than 8 people during breakfast. Nice neighborhod. Visit the near market at Moufetard street. Great place for dinner.

    Nice hotel for the money.

    from

    I, too, was not sure what to expect from this hotel. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The room (although on the small side, as can be expected in Paris) was very clean. The bathroom was clean and fairly modern and larger than expected. However, if you're a big person, you will have a hard time fitting into the shower. It was VERY small! The staff were very helpful at meeting our needs. The breakfast, which was included with the room, was sufficient and quick and easy. I would not stay here in the summer months as there is no air conditioning.

    The metro is a short walk away. If taking the meto from the airport or train station, take Des Gobelins from Gard Nord. It's closer than St. Marcel.

    Great stay at Le Grand Hotel Des Gobelins

    from

    My wife and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Le Grand Hotel Des Gobelins. From the previous reviews I was'nt sure what to expect but from our arrival the staff could'nt be more helpful and friendly. The room (a standard room) was adequate size for 2 people with a clean bathroom. The only negative thing I would say is there is not air-con, so if you go during the summer it can get uncomfortable.

    The location was excellent 5 minutes from the metro, we purchased a 5 day visitor pass which is invaluable when you want to see a the sights.

    Great location, terrible service

    from

    We stayed here for 4 nights in October. Our room was tiny (we are aware that Paris rooms are usually small but 3* are generally nice). It was dull, claustrophobic and with very poor facilities. Hotel renovations were going on - we were not made aware of this and staff did not seem to see the problem of being awoken at 7.30 am with workmen balancing on scaffolding RIGHT OUTSIDE our 5th floor window. We could not open our window because of this and our room was extremely stuffy. Scaffolding was also covered by sheeting therefore we could not see out our window.

    This may be bad luck but I would strongly recommend contacting the hotel re: renovations before you go.

    Well worth a look

    from

    Stayed three nights at the Grand Hotel Les Gobelins for our first trip

    to Paris. You never know what to expect so I was pleased to find the

    tripadvisor site, from what I read we could have ended up in some real

    fleapits. Not so with Les Gobelins, a small affordable hotel, very

    clean and quiet and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

    Paris is a must, we'll have to go back as a couple of days isn't long

    enough. We bought a Paris Visite metro / bus ticket for about ?15 each

    - well worth it, jump on and off where you like and go and see the

    sites. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

    Loved the Grand Hotel Des Gobelins - great staff and wonderful location

    from

    I've stayed at the Grand Hotel Des Gobelins several times. I've never been disappointed. Great, huge bathrooms.
