    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.

It sort of looked newer than a lot of the other buildings we had looked at but it was finished in 1790 so is still quite old. We were given tickets for a free tour to climb 80 steps up to the top balcony section. It was a good view looking down. We headed home after this and had a siesta.

    Eli booked tickets while we were at home for a boat trip on the Seine. A boat left every ...

Tomorrow will be on to some hop-on/hop-off buses to see the main sights, we know we won't have time to see everything but it's giving us more of an idea if we are ever blessed enough to have a similar chance in the ...

    Yoyo's T & T

    Many years ago when I was in the USAF I was stationed in South Carolina and lived off-base near a junkyard called Yoyo's T & T, supposedly for trash & treasure, although from my observation it leaned heavily toward the former rather than the latter. What Yoyo's lacked in quality it made up with honesty. The sign at the entrance proclaimed: High Prices, Shoddy Merchandise, and Poor Service. A poster child for truth in advertising.

    So it was with ...

    Bike Tour!

    Dennis had to fly off to Frankfurt today on business so I booked myself on a bike tour of Paris. I know, sounds risky, right? I was originally booked on a bike tour of Versailles but the trains were on strike today so that tour was cancelled. The tour company knew about the strike a couple of days ago so they called and offered me the Hidden Paris tour with assurances that it was perfectly safe! Since I had a little time to kill before my tour, I walked over ...
