“Lovely Little Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2006

This is a delightful little hotel and in an excellent location. The rooms and bathrooms are small, but the decorations make up for it.

Okay the bathroom is miniscule, but the plumbing works great! Also, the room is immaculate, nicely decorated, and quiet. In the morning, the fresh-squeezed orange juice, coffee, boiled eggs, pastries, yogurt, and cereal make for a delightful continental breakfast. The surrounding neighborhood, the toney 16th arrondisement, if not the most tourist friendly, is very walkable with good shopping, and the nearby Bois de Boulogne, Trocadero, and Marmottan museum make you feel as if you have stepped onto the set of Gigi. There is easy access to the metro, and the hotel seems great for business travelers.

This is your typical small hotel in Paris. Rooms are small and so are the bathrooms but this is what you should expect for a two star hotel with a rate of ~120 euros a night. The room have character and bathrooms are very clean. If you can, get a room facing the street so that you don't hear the neighbors at night. The hotel is 5 minutes from the metro station and a pleasant 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower/Trocadero fountains. Even though it is located in a high rent residential area, there are shops and restaurant around but you are not in central Paris and need to take 15 min metro ride to get to the center.

I have stayed at the Hotel Gavarni on two trips to Paris. Both stays were excellent, in a quiet neighborhood and as a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe. The staff was very accomodating. If you want value for less, in a clean, cheery environment -- this is it! Close to Passy Metro as well...

I stayed here for one night, on recommendation by a Charming hotels book, but I was not too impressed. It lies at a walkable distance from a metro station but the neighbourhood is quite average. There are many nicer areas to stay in.
The ladies at the reception are Asian and like most Asians nice and friendly, but not very knowledgable. I tried to send an email at their free PC, but only found out after writing the mail that it could not be send, and they should have known that. And the website of Gavarni said something about a free Seine cruise and they knew nothing about that.
The rooms are VERY small and noisy. I could literally hear what the American woman in the next room said during an early morning phone-call.
The roooms are quite nice though and cosy. Bathroom is very small too, but has even a bath, although one where you can only sit in.
I paid a high price for the cheapest room. Would never spend any money on their suites. For a bit more you can go to the Ritz!!
No, next time I will prefer a hotel in or near the Marais.
I did not have breakfast. Too expensive.
Liked the Gavarni toiletries in the bathroom.

We stayed here a few years ago and it was wonderful. It is in a residential area, so it was quiet and had a grocery store nearby and pastry shops. The service was excellent, the person at the desk made train reservations for us and took very good care of us. We did walk to the Eiffel tower which was a nice little 15 minute or so walk. The rooms were small but very nice.
