      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Garance Paris

      Love the hotel and neighborhood


      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.

      I would not hecitate to stay at this hotel again.My wife and I had coffe every morning at one of the local cafes. In the evening is completely different picture, the market closes early and all the bistros and brasseries

      open up with tables and chairs outside.

      Fantastic value


      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.

      There are lovely boulangeries and cafes nearby for breakfast supplies, as well as the fresh food markets and supermarkets of rue Mouffetard.

      Management are efficient and helpful (eg calling a cab) without being obsequious or obtrusive. I was VERY impressed that after arriving straight from a 30 hour flight and connections at 9am, and fully expecting the room not to be ready til afternoon, I was told that although the room was not ready, I could take my bags up, rather than leave them in a public place, use the toilet, change if necessary, and that the room would be ready in an hour! Great service.

      My room was a single overlooking a quiet peaceful courtyard. The only noise was the occasional coming and going of other guests (a problem of all older style hotels!) .

      The small room was nicely and freshly decorated, the bed was a king single, and comfortable, so not depressing like some pokey singles can be. The bathroom was nicely tiled and spacious, although the shower cabinet was so small my elbows kept banging on the screen.

      I would definitely stay there again.

      Non-touristy area


      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.

M says: it is a long time since I have been here (1985 actually) and in my mind I might have romanticised it a bit! Point of interest I forgot to mention - French and particularly Swiss, cars are small, clean and newish. They have laws/systems in place to keep old cars off the roads!!! Well we've ...

      A day in Bayeux and a night in Paris

      We decided to spend the morning and afternoon in Bayeux and then head out to Paris for the night. We all just loved the quaint town of Bayeux, it was full of character. It was fun to see shops and things we would never see in Minnesota. We went by a full on fresh fish store...seriously, fish on ice ready to buy and eat. It was quite smelly, but really cool to see all the different types of fish. They even had squid and eel! They are able to have lost of fresh flower stores, it was ...

      Our evening cycle tour was great! We were fitted with bikes, given instructions about signals and made to feel like a team! We were to ‘DOMINATE’ the road at times; use our hands and faces to express our power over the traffic; keep in front of the ‘derriere’ rider; follow our fearless leader Alexandria; enjoy the lovely weather; stop to take photos; buy a great ice-cream and listen to historic commentary and take in all the ...

We didn't go inside, because of the free entry the wait was about an hour so we may go back on Tuesday to look at the paintings. After finding some lunch we walked to the Musee D'Orsay, the old railway station with a huge glass roof which I really wanted to go to, but once again free entry meant at least an hour wait so ...

      ... into town and strolled to the Eiffel Tower. It was cold and windy but the rain was quite light at this point, thankfully I had purchased an umbrella that morning. The queue wasn't too bad probably due to the weather. I was happily going to take the lift and as I was waiting I was reading the sign ahead which advised the top floor was temporarily closed, needless to say I was a little disappointed however as ...
