“Two Sisters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

Loved the staff and the location of the hotel. Direct metro line to Gare du Nord and RER. Only 2 stops to the Musee d'Orsay!!! Substantial breakfast in the morning, croissants, fruit juice, cereal, all served with a smile. We asked for a quiet room but as the hotel is located front and back on busy roads, little could be done but we did sleep with windows closed. the people at the hotel were very helpful.

Fantastic location - metro station just around the corner, excellent restaurants in the area, supermarket a few doors down. Staff was friendly and speaking English was never a problem. Breakfast was great - cheese, cold meats, croissants, bread, jam, tinned fruits, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice. The room was somewhat dated and the bed was a little uncomfortable, but the bathroom was large. Could be noisy due to street traffic. Wifi worked well.

Would stay here again based on location, breakfast, and value.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 60 which had a view of the Eiffel Tower!

Hotel was clean, staff were helpful, and check in and booking were straightforward and without any problems. Bathroom was lovely. Room could benefit from tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast is continental and was perfect to set you up for a day of exploring.

I agree with most of the recent reviews: The rooms are well furnished, pleasant decor, clean and with good shower facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was good. Even though it was on quite a busy road, the double-glazing kept out most of the noise. The interior noise of people in the lift or on the stairs is a bit of a problem, but this is fairly standard to the design of hotels in Paris. I also agree that the breakfast buffet could have been better, especially if you needed a vegetarian option. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for the price. However, if the managers are reading this, please do something about your pillows! Almost every hotel I visit, even if they have the most comfortable beds (as mine at Gobelins was), they have saggy cheap pillows that give an uncomfortable night's sleep. Hoteliers of the world, buy better pillows!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on a higher floor as you are less likely to be disturbed by people traffic on the...

This was an excellent 'stop off' hotel in Paris. The accommodation was clean and very acceptable - 'though folks should be aware that in the triple rooms there is only a bath with overhead shower available, and our bath was too high for an elderly friend to access. However, staff were very helpful, breakfast was ample, and all in all I would be happy to return if ever in Paris again.

I have just returned from a lovely trip to Paris staying at the Grand Hotel des Gobelins. I had a single room, small by North American standards, but it had a very comfortable, firm mattress, it was immaculately clean with Parisian shuttered windows and one of the best showers I've ever had on vacation. The staff were friendly, pleasant, and helpful. Breakfast is included with a selection of delicious yogurt, two different fruits, two varieties of cheeses and meats, two different juices and lovely French crusty rolls and the most delicious croissants. It was a great start to every morning! The hotel is about a block from a metro stop and has a grocery store about four doors down the street. Due to the proximity to the metro, it is a very reasonably priced hotel to access all of Paris. I stayed there for nine nights and it felt like my home in Paris. Next trip, I will definitely stay there again.

I give this hotel "very good" because of it has good location, it is clean, free Internet, newspapers and workers are friendly. Rooms are small but expected. Breakfast could be better and that's why I take a star away from excellente. Value is acceptable.
