Grand Hotel des Gobelins

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very small rooms and beds, our Aussie husbands over six foot had their feet sticking out of the bed. One room had no kettle, no fan and the door to enter didn't open fully because of the bed. You had to walk in one at a time, close the door, walk around it and open again for the next person. The location is good though and a great bar next door and passterie over the road. Close to Latin quater

Lovely little hotel - was warming greeted every time we returned to the hotel and staff were always helpful and accommodating! Facilities are basic but clean and you have everything you need really. This hotel is a slight walk into town - the closest monument to get to os Notre Dame which was my favourite and its about a 25 minute walk. The only slight downfall is that the walls a VERY thin and so you can hear everyone coming and going through the corridors but its not really a big issue as it is a city after all! Would definitely recommend!

Booked two adjoining rooms for a family of five last July. The hotel is in good shape, the staff competent and attentive and it is very close to Jardin des Plantes. Within easy reach of the metro, and with a handy supermarket 2 minutes away. Compared to the prices offered by other hotels in that range, Grand Hotel des Gobelins appears to offer very good value for money.

This was my first time in Paris and I really enjoyed the Grand Hotel Gobelins. A good location near subway, bus routes, dining and such. Just up the block is a very well stocked grocery store. Room was small but adequate. A wonderful breakfast served at a reasonable price. The staff take pride in maintaining the property. They were also most helpful in providing directions and suggestions for seeing the city. The desk manager suggested a very simple way to get to the airport which was spot on. Lots of steps if you don't use the elevator that's part of the charm.

We spent 5 nights in the hotel. Family of 2 adults and 3 kids. I asked for 2 rooms next to each other in advance but i didn't't get. In the end it wasn't't to bad. Very nice and not big hotel .located next to a metro station. Nice small and clean rooms.

We loved staying at this hotel. The staff were very friendly, kindly, warm and helpful. Our room was clean and spotless. The location was great, 5 minute walk to the Gobelins metro stop. We will definitely go there again when we visit Paris. The concierge, Jean Marc, was particularly friendly and very helpful with any questions we might have.

the hotel itself is simple, with good bed and functional bathroom, What make this hotel super nice its the people at the front desk. Always ready to help even with silly questions! I will come back for sure.

The hotel is easy to find, just some 300 m from Metro Les Gobelins. The check-in was quite swift. The room was tiny, but enough for sleeping. Decently furnished. The immediate surroundings were nice, but nothing special. Quite a lot of restaurants, cafeteria and boulangeries. We didn't try breakfast at the hotel, but went out. The staff was friendly, the rooms were well cleaned.

We have spent two nights there. Nothing to comment on cleanliness and staff's politeness but the room was amazingly small. The bed itself occupies 90% of the surface of the entire room. Very difficult to live in two people inside that room. Same situation for the bathroom. Not worth for the money they ask for.

I would recommend this hotel if you are not intending to spend all your days in your room. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. What made this hotel special was the front desk staff, they were all very helpful and friendly. Also for a non French speaker it was a relief that they spoke excellent English. The breakfast was good, not possibly worth 9€ but as I was lazy I had it every morning. Be aware the eggs are raw and you need to boil them in a egg boiling device. As a location it was perfect for what we were there for (ice hockey World Champs) as it was close to the arena. The metro stops are close by so it was easy to travel from the area. It was a clean and quiet area so I would most probably stay there again and if so would definitely stay in the same hotel. We took a taxi from Montmatre and it was cheap. If I remember right it was about 15€ which was very reasonable. All in all very good, did the job, was very reasonable price and loved the front desk staff. Not a family hotel though!
