Hotel with a Park
A safe little hotel with a sunny park. I stayed for a couple of weeks at the Gardette Park Hotel exploring everywhere in Paris by foot. Within an hours walking from the Gare du Nord train station (train from the airport) the hotel offers a friendly retreat. The rooms are kept fresh and clean and there is a breakfast area on the ground floor. The staff all seemed to understand my English which is so relieving given my French. The room has a tv, phone, kettle and the free wifi worked great.
Rooms stairs and lift could be considered a little small, however the comfortable bed and clean bathroom provide for basic needs. The shower was hot and the fresh daily towels perfect for the worn-out traveler as was the changed bedding. There is a closet with a few hangers and a safe for valuables. My favourites were the old water heater, great for drying out socks, and the hot red tiled bathroom. The added bonus of a small veranda on my room was awesome with a park across the road.
I never actually stopped for a breakfast but it did look and smell yummy as I walked past each morning. There was always someone at reception no matter what time I left or returned and they were always helpful with my questions.
The main attractions in Paris are each about an hours... walk from the hotel with the metro and bus just a couple of short blocks away. Heaps of cafes in the area with the Salt restaurant across the road serving a awesome degustation for dinner.
So overall a great stay.

Thank you very much for posting this positive review about our hotel and your time spent in Paris. We have really enjoyed hosting you at the hotel. We agree with you : the quarter around the hotel is very pleasant and tipically parisian.
