Mercure Paris Gobelins Place d'Italie

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was tired and smelled of smoke. This was clearly an issue as the concierge had a machine to deal with this issue and said it happened a lot. Although this was supposed to be a no smoking room. The bathroom was tiny, if you’re overweight you wouldn’t be able to get in the shower. There was nowhere to put your own toiletries in the shower and there was a problem with the drains so an awful stench in the whole room every evening when we got back. Breakfast was mediocre.

Although perhaps a 'little' further out of town than I'd prefer (for pure convenience of being 'IN' town), it was very close to a Metro station, so everywhere was available. The hotel entrance is set back off the street with its own courtyard, which meant that it was lovely and peaceful. Having said that, the area seemed to be very nice, so I would have thought it would be anything other than peaceful. There are a few cafe/bar/restaurants on the large square, and a very impressive bakery!

We have just come back from a 4 night stay at the hotel... The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean and tidy if a little small but u expect that in a capital city. Bed was massive great shower... And WiFi generally good... However small paper cups to make tea and coffee in is a bit rubbish and plastic cups for water isn't great for the environment... And when u say if u leave your towels on the rail we will not change them then don't change them!!! Location was quiet... The breakfast was good with regular coffee and a tassimo machine and a reasonable food selection... Although we would never have paid the full price the hotel charges for the breakfast!!!

We had a conf at pierre et marie curie faculty of medecine ,the hotel location was 5 min walking. Also the hotel situation near place d'italie was perfect for metro 6&7 line .near z hotel there was also a mall (italie 2)huge with many shopping stores&carrefour inside. The hotel team was so friendly & kind helping us in many question about touristic issues.rooms small a little bit but fair enough.breakfast also nice. I recommend it👍🏻

I stayed here twice in 6 months, it was PERFECT. Loved the location, felt safe, great restos near by.... an easy choice! The room was the perfect size, clean bathroom, dark at night, quiet... it was just right!

It was hard to find the hotel because the entrance is in a small open-gated area but once you find it it is well kept. The front staff is friendly and speaks english. The elevators are clean and small and so was my room. The room had good air conditioning, a small refrigerator in the lower cabinet near the door and plenty of counter space. The beds were comfortable with good lighting and there were many electrical outlets. The bathroom is small but with just the right amount of counter space to put your toiletries. The water pressure was great with plenty of hot water. Maid service was daily, however, just the minimum amount of towels are stocked in the room when we asked for more each day by writing a note for the maid to see. We found out that the maid could not read english writing. There is no laundry service at all at this hotel. We were told that there was a laundry mat a few blocks away from the front office staff. :( The hotel is just a few minutes walk to the metro and there is an indoor mall nearby with a small grocery store to stock up on food and drinks. There are also plenty of eateries such as Subway, KFC, McDonald's, and a few outdoor cafes that are reasonably priced.

This attractive hotel is surrounded by several small gardens. The staff spoke good English and handled questions and problems well. The breakfast was excellent value. There was a very attractive courtyard where breakfast could be eaten in good weather. My room was clean and comfortable. I liked the Place DÍtalie area - it felt safer than some areas of Paris and there were good restaurants, a supermarket and many shops nearby. There seemed to be regular markets in a nearby street. Altogether, I thought the hotel was very good value and I will certainly stay there again on my next trip to Paris.

My Fiancé and I spent a lovely weekend at this hotel. It was easy to get to from the Metro, and in a quiet part of Paris, with cafe/bars close by. We found the staff friendly & welcoming, the rooms were lovely, although not the biggest, they were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely, with plenty of choice, especially nice being able to sit out in the courtyard. I would stay here again without a doubt.

Went to Paris for a long weekend and stayed at this hotel. Went to our room to unpack, and unfortunately was not ready. Went back to reception, and their response was very quick and positive. Upgraded us to one of their Privilege Rooms with a free mini bar ( soft drinks) Did not expect that with a view of the Eiffel Tower as well. Triple whammy, we could not of asked for anything more. Would like to have given them four and a half stars, not sure how you do that. However would have been 5 stars if not for the wifi. I did not find it powerful enough. We did feed this back to the team and they took it in the right spirit and said we should have pestered them. How good is that. Thanks for the way you looked after us.

We recently had a long weekend in Paris and opted to stay a little further out of the main city centre. This hotel is 20 minutes Metro ride from the centre of Paris and a short walk from place d'Italie Metro station (5 mins). For that you get a good size room not like some in the city centre where you can bearly swing a cat in. It was very clean and tidy and the staff very helpful. For instance, we had brought the wrong adapter to charge our phones and they had one which we borrowed. Breakfast was pretty good doing the normal Continental breakfast and also small French sausages, scrambled eggs and chopped smoked bacon. Coffee at breakfast came as a Nespresso machine and was excellent. Various types of tea and juices. The air conditioning in the room was very welcome as was hot on our short break. The bathroom and shower were very good and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
