Great location, metro close so everywhere easy to get to. Nice room and bed comfy, lovely bathroom which was quite big for type and size of hotel. Clean and tidy. Reception very friendly and helpful. I did have one unsettled night due to noise from restaurant and mentioned this to reception the next morning. They moved me immediately so happy... More

We used this hotel as a stopping off point as it is ideally located close to Saint-Marcel on Line 5 so is in walking distance when arriving via Metro from Eurostar etc. The hotel was undergoing refurbishment when we arrived so the whole frontage was covered by scaffolding. This didn’t bother us unduly as we were not planning on spending... More

The location of this hotel is exellent! Cozy boulevard, nearby metro, and just a short walk to Rue Mouffetard and jardin Luxembourg. But, when we arrived and checked in, we were charged 15 euros extra (apparently new rules from the mayor), and we were told we could have no breakfast (apparently new rules from expedia). I said we booked the... More

Location is fantastic - nearest metro station is Des Gobelins and is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We had a double room which had an ensuite bathroom. Comfortable peaceful nights sleep. Breakfasts were fine, consisting of cheeses, salami, joghurts, croissant, bread, spreads, tea, coffee, fruit juice etc... Hotel was clean and reception staff friendly.

Small, friendly and close to some charming restaurants and easy-to-reach Parisian sights (Latin Quarter, Luxembourg Gardens etc) There's a handy market just down the street. The rooms are Parisian small - especially if you're travelling solo. Front desk service is helpful and tolerant of laboured French (a rare thing in Paris) The Gobelins Metro is just at the corner, but... More

The hotel is located in the middle of two metro lines and can easily reach all the major attractions in Paris. The room is small and quite outdated but the services was great and breakfasts were wonderful.

We rented 2 rooms, it was a family trip.Both of our rooms faced the front of busy street. The temperature were in the 90th and we could not open our windows due to the fact that there is remodeling going on with scaffolding on the front building. My room # 42 was large enough for 2 people but the bathroom... More

We stayed in the Grand hotel des Gonelins for about a week in june 2015. The lovation is great, just south of the Quartier Latin, whichis within ealking distance or 2 stops with the metro: the neatest station is about 4mins away. The hotel is clean, but small and a bit outdated, including procedures like having to leave the key... More

It was very well placed for the metro, could walk to city centre and near lovely restaurants. The hotel was quiet and clean. The continental breakfast was lovely and there was lots to choose from. The hotel was placed in the middle of two metro lines which was a bonus to get around the city. If you are more energetic... More

After reading the reviews, we were disappointed when we saw our room (6th floor at the front), which is probably the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in and the most sparsely furnished (a cupboard, a bed, but no chest of drawers)! We were advised when we checked in that a tile in the bathroom had been broken, and it... More
