“2 days in Paris!”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

We spent May 2 & 3, 2012 touring around Paris, spending the night at the Hotel Gavarni! It has old world charm with modern conveniences. It is very close to the Passy Metro stop and is within easy walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. The concierge recommended a wonderful restaurant, le Bistro des vignes a short walk from the hotel. There are many retail shops and cares in the immediate area. Everyone we met was super friendly and helpful!!

What a pleasure to be back at the Gavarni; I started using this fine hotel back in the early 80s when I made frequent business trips to Paris; the hotel has changed owners in the meantime, but the Gavarni has only changed to become even better. Its location in the 16th arrondissement in a quiet streed off the busy Passy is excellent and the view, available from the upper floor rooms, towards the Eiffel Tower perfect. I can recommend this hotel both from a price/quality point of view and from the excellent breakfast service. Another pro is the freely available WIFI system - a must in all quality hotels; regarding restaurant, as with almost all three star hotels in Paris you have to go outside. But this really an advantage: 50 meters from the Garvari you will find the restaurant La Petite Tour - an excellent traditional French restaurant, where you sometimes will find movie stars dining incognito. When I was first introduced to the Garvarni I was told that Hemmingway used to stay in the Garvarni - I suppose he also came to La Petite Tour for lunch or dinner.

A very last minute trip to Paris with no knowledge of the 16th arrondisemont provided us a very pleasant surprize with this little jewel of a hotel.
Located on Rue Gavarni accessable to Rue de Passey and Eiffel Tower area this
was beyond expectations! The staff was EXCELLENT! As helpful as possible with everything we needed, they were wonderful! I would go back again if I could as soon as possible.

Stayed here with my husband and dad for a quick two day stay in Paris. We had originally booked the apartment/ family room for a great price online, however upon arriving at the hotel for check in we were told there was a problem with the room and they asked if we would mind staying in the Eiffel Suite. The Suite was beautiful with a lovely view of the tower. The room was large enough with a pull out sofa, which wasn't ideal as we had originally booked the apartment for two separate sleeping areas. That said, the lovely room and view along with the amazing location made up for it. Also, the price we ended up paying for the suite was much less than they normally claim they command. As anticipated for Paris the bathroom and the lift were very small but not something that I minded. Another pro was it was an all green hotel. Two cons I could think of was the horribly slow wi-fi. So slow not even useable. Also as we drove parking was expensive at a garage around the corner. All in all a lovely stay and a view that took my breath away especially when the tower lit up at night. I can't say that we would have chosen or stayed at this hotel for the full price they advertise, but for the short stay and the way everything work out it was lovely.

Gavarni is a nice hotel. The best features are its good value for money, location and its reasonably priced breakfast. However, its rooms are quite small (unless you are staying in one of the suites) and the bathrooms are the most compact I have seen in a Paris hotel. I found the sound proofing in the rooms to be a a little thin (I often can hear people snoring in adjacent rooms)! There is cable TV in the rooms offering many non english language channels.

The lift unfortunately opens between floors meaning that luggage has to be hauled up or down the stair case to the relevant floor.

The reception staff are relaxed and I found most of them to be very helpful.

There are plenty of eating options nearby but as the 16th district is mainly a residental/diplomatic area, there is not the same range or abundance that can be found elsewhere. That said there are several good restaurants nearby and a small shopping centre - Passy Centre - about 10 minutes away.

The metro - Passy station - is also a short walk down the street.

Room Tip: The junior suites offer more room than the standard rooms. The standard rooms are quite small.

Bad points,
very small rooms, extremely small bathroom, no English tv channels, a bit overpriced for what you get.
Good points
Very friendly staff, very clean, very safe, lovely neighbourhood, brilliant location, would definitely stay again.
