“Charming old small family Hotel. Good breakfast excellent Auberge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

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..

The hotel was being renovated when I stayed end of October and I got one of the newly renovated rooms that was right in front of the garden. The room is really spacious by Paris standards! They redid the rooms in a modern way, or at least that's what my friend said who got a non-renovated room on the upper floor. Breakfast was basic in their small reception area, with croissants, pain au choco, baguettes and butter and jam but you can also ask for yogurt, cheese or a piece of pie. The staff is really wonderful and friendly, especially Mr Christian who was always in a great mood. My only gripe is their wifi. It kept dropping on me, and the code I was given which is supposed to work for 7 days became invalid after 2 days and I had to get a new code and in the end didn't matter since I stopped connecting due to the constant dropping. A colleague was unable to connect at all. It's a 10 min walk to Place d'Italie and Chinatown which is more like Vietnamese town with tons of Pho noodle places. There is also a large shopping mall at Place d'Italie with a supermarket if you forgot anything for your stay. All in all, a very wonderful stay aside from the lack of reliable wifi.

We found this hotel in a book about travelling to Paris with kids. It's a bit off the beaten path, but in walking distance of metro stops. We loved the garden and the home-like feel of the hotel. The rooms open up to the garden. The staff were very friendly. Even when there was an issue with the wi-fi, they went out of their way to make sure we had internet access. The breakfast was pricey, but we had a kitchenette in the room and there was a bakery a block away. The rooms were small, but that's not unusual for Paris. We made it work as a family of 4. We did like the neighborhood it was in, the quiet park across the street. We found this a very affordable hotel for Paris.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the garden. Ask about the kitchen, if you want one.

I spent four nights at Le Vert Galant while I was attending a conference nearby. It is very convenient for a variety of metro stops and a short walk one way to the Place d'Italie, where there are shops, and a short walk another way to the rue des Gobelins, which is an attractive and busy typically Parisian street with lots of restaurants. The hotel is small but comfortably furnished, with a very pretty garden where you can read or sit and chat. My room had a useful alcove with desk- I had no trouble with the wifi at all. The staff were pleasant and helpful without being pushy. It isn't a cheap hotel, and I thought 10 euros was a bit steep for the breakfast, considering that although there was a full basket on each table, it mostly consisted of pieces of bread, which isn't expensive. However, I wanted somewhere that was pleasant just to sit and rest in and this hotel is ideal for that. It was also raining very hard much of the time, so one needed to be comfortable in one's room. It is wonderfully quiet at night and in a pleasant, quite leafy part of Paris. The Basque restaurant next door was delightful and for a cheaper but still good quality dinner, La Touraine, a couple of doors further along, was less busy and good value. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to backpackers or people on a tight budget, but for a restful stay, enjoying Paris without being too touristy, this is an ideal place.

Room Tip: Ask about the size of bed: I was alone on this occasion, but had I been accompanied the bed, suppose...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We had a five night stay at Le Vert Galant in April. We have a friend who lives in the 13th so we chose this hotel to be near her apartment. The hotel is located on a very quiet street across from a lovely park, so the setting is quite ideal. It is within a five minute walk of several metro stops and not far from both the Gobelins area and the Place d'Italie area ... and so convenience and location both get an A+++. The hotel itself is ... nice. Frankly, it is likely time for a little update of the rooms, but it was perfectly clean (well, nothing's perfect!) and the bed was certainly comfortable after long days of sightseeing in Paris. Room opens up onto a small garden area which, in summer, is likely very nice and quite unusual for Paris. The staff at the hotel were outstanding - both weekday staff and weekend staff - very friendly and accommodating. Free WIFI was excellent also. Breakfast was nice and convenient, although frankly 10 Euros seems a little high for bread and coffee. One major minus ... the walls of the hotel are paper thin and thus you can hear the neighbour's conversation word for word - day or night. Overall, a nice choice for a three star in an otherwise confusing maze of in the hit and miss hotel market of Paris.

Room Tip: Room 2 was close to the entrance and adequately sized.
