    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.

    ... min flat! I don't think we've ever gone faster thru passport. They didn't even ask any questions - just stamped the passport and off we went (carry on only so no luggage to wait for)...into the chaos of people trying to fly out of CDG. There was some construction going on...the hallway at the front of the airport wasn't very wide and was full of people waiting in lineups to check in for their flights...and full of ...

    ... located in the Latin Quarter on the left bank and within 50 meters of the St Michel Metro station. Of course there is a café/bar on every corner so Dannielle and I sat back and enjoyed our first Aperitif while waiting.

    Kim navigated the metro system and arrived in need of refreshment after that experience, so once she had settled into the hotel we were off to explore the St ...

    Pickpocket on the loose!

    ... to St.-Germain-des-Pres! We had just finished eating lunch at one of the cafes on the Place du Trocadero, which sits directly across the river from the Eiffel Tower. After purchasing some tickets in the Trocadero metro station, we boarded the ill-fated bus, which was jam-packed and standing-room-only throughout the entire journey. This no doubt aided and abetted the pickpocket, as there was considerable jostling among the standing riders, especially as more and ...

    ... the change of language and culture here from London; Paris is still a very international city, but French is the official language, so it's forcing many of us to step out of our comfort zones and learn some common words and phrases to get by.

    Shortly after we arrived in Paris, we visited the more central part of the city near St. Michele for an authentic French dinner. My fellow travelers and I enjoyed ...
