I found Grand Hotel des Gobelins through expedia. It was a great deal and what prompted me to look at this hotel was that it talked about being on the fringe of Latin Quarter and with a Metro on the corner. It was a great deal and also offered free wifi and breakfast. This hotel is located close to a... More

It is a nice small hotel I usually visit, with a very good location in a quiet quartier, good trasport facilities and good value for money rates. This time (June 12 to 16) they were through heavy maintance work and change of management, and the quality of service was affected. The kindness of many employees were not enough to compensate...

As far as hotels in Paris go, this hotel offers good value for money and an excellent location. Close to all the sights but in an area which is not as expensive as central Paris. The rooms are decent sized and offers everything you need. Very helpful and friendly staff.

A typical small French hotel situated on edge of Latin quarter. This hotel is bright and well maintained. Rooms are on the small side if you are wanting storage and seating. Rooms are pleasantly decorated and clean. Bathroom similarly so. Breakfast is simple continental. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful at all times. Luggage room available after checkout.

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.
