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.
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.
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.

... before. We admired the energy around us but were not inspired to join in especially as the day was proving very humid as well as warm.
Our walk was basically an exercise in getting lost and finding new things along the way in a purposeful manner as we find that this is where you can 'get local' as far as sight seeing goes for a change from hitting the tourist spots. Also as we have done most of the key tourist spots already on our last trip, we can ...
... pursuit of the finer things in life--the mecca of fine art, cuisine, and fashion -- is at the same time the centre of human rights and justice in the world. It's an interesting paradox that just might help me rationalize my own selfish pursuits in this place without feeling the soul-diminishing "shouldn't you be doing something more meaningful with your time" pangs. Not quite there yet, but very willing to keep on trying.
Started in rainy Bruges. Caught the train to Brussells, and then the high speed traing to Paris.
Clocked this on my GPS with an average speed of around 290kph- but very smooth.
Arrived safely in Paris, and had our driver waiting for us at the end of the station platform.
Dropped us off right at our door, and our aparment people let us in. 4 locks, and a pass number, and then 60 ...

Leaving the museum Steven shared with me a thought he had about how the art world is basically a cult. His rationale for this theory is that you care about it and it makes sense to you when you're in it (the arty people) but from the outside (the rational people) ...
