“Cute hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This hotel was fantastic. Our beds were always made and room cleaned. The staff were friendly and helped us with directions.
We loved the garden view. But however never had the breakfast as it was expensive.
Would stay here again, close to subway.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with family

The Vert Galant is in the 13th arrondissement, on a very quiet street directly across from a city park. The park and the neighborhood are not frequented by tourists; the Vert Galant is the only hotel on the street. The staff are fully bi-lingual and very helpful. The rooms are simple but complete, clean, quiet, and very comfortable. All rooms look out over the hotel's private courtyard, itself a small oasis of peace and quiet. Very nice petit dejeuner (breakfast). The hotel's restaurant, adjacent, has features Basque cuisine and is an affordable delight. I have stayed at the Vert Galant many times over the past 10 years and expect to return again and again.

I really wanted to like this hotel. It was a good price (for Paris) and the staff was very nice and accommodating. But it is showing major signs of wear. Apparently they are making renovations, but there is construction material piled up in the very neglected garden. Worst of all, you can hear a conversation through the walls from one room to the next, and the plumbing seem to go through the walls next to my bed. When someone upstairs took a shower, it sounded as if water were running right through the room. The location is a bit out-of-the-way, but there are major Metro stops nearby, so that is not really a problem. So - if soundproofing were added, new linens bought for the beds, and the rooms given a bit of a facelift, this could be a great hotel. But, at this point - not so much.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, and one that has been renovated.

If you want to be near monuments, museums and tourists this hotel is not for you. BUT.... If you want an authenic hotel in a quiet,safe and vibrant Parisian neighborhood with easy metro access to the aforementioned, book a room. Le Vert Galant is an unpretentious hotel in 13e. Renovations are underway but the hotel is clean, quiet and the staff professional (merci Christian, Harsh and Ulysses) and helpful. Good ethnic dining is within walking distance. Chinatown is a 15 minutes away. A fantastic Morrocan restaurant,Le Sirocco,is a few blocks north on 8bis rue des Gobelins. Italian specialties and tasty brick oven pizza are around the corner at Cesars on av. des Gobelins. Rue Mouffetard, famous for it's open air market, pedestrian way,bistros, fallafal take out and association with Rodin and Hemingway are 15 minutes away. We booked here twice...my suggestion is not to pay extra for a room with a kitchenette...It was my fault to assumed that it would include a toaster oven, microwave, coffee machine, a table with 2 chairs to enjoy breakfast...Mais NON! It was a disappointment...so don't pay the extra 10 euros...Ask ??? if you want one. Other complaint is the lack of a bathroom outlet in our other room....All in all..minor complaints. I'll book again when I return to Paris.

A "restful" symbol in the Michelin red guide and favorable comments here led us to Le Vert Galant, as I had a meeting nearby. There are renovations underway, so one might excuse the debris piled in the garden and the odd collections of furniture in the rooms and hallways. However, that does not excuse one's room remaining untouched by the housekeepers until mid-afternoon, the long wait to be let in the front door at 3pm, or merely warm coffee at breakfast at 8:30. The renovations themselves are questionable: hardwood floors in the ceilings and floors of corridors and rooms amplify noises; and in the 21st century one should have more than one electrical outlet available. On the other hand, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

Room Tip: Specifically request a large, garden room.

We love the South Bank and this area in particular. Near at least three Metro Stations. Basque family rn business who have an excellent restaurant next door. Madame was delightful and many of the staff have been there for years. Small garden at the back under renovations at the moment. Nice room. Good shower but odd lavatory ... very small.
We had lovely breakfast in the mornings. If you like small french hotels this is a one for you. If you want all the bells and whistles look elsewhere. We will return

Inexpensive hotel with pleasant staff. Some rooms are bearly acceptable, with moldy bayhrooms and smelly carpets. Breakfast copious if plain however back room for prep unhygenic - dishes piled in sink,open cartons unrefeigerated, cold food left on benches.... We requested and got a renovated, cleaner room. Corridor carpets smelly and discoloured. Neighbourhood - we felt a little unsafe - mother and teenage daughter. Metro closed one day due to a violent snatch and grab. Two good snack bars - clean and friendlynstaff - kebab and pizza. Also a good Chinese resto. All to left of hotel exit..
