A wonderful studio apartment!!
Posted 19-Jul-2016 on Hotels
We chose the studio apartment as it had a kitchenette and a washing machine. The bathroom was beautiful and large by European standards with great water pressure. The apartment was very clean, the bed was VERY COMFORTABLE, the best thing about my stay!! The kitchenette was awesome with a coffee machine, large fridge and hot water kettle. The room and apartment security was great, the front door has a code and the doors are all very secure. The neighborhood is very safe.
Gambetta is a great neighborhood to come back to after a long day of sightseeing and this hotel is extra convenient to the buses and metro. There are local grocery stores (Monoprix, the larger store is on Avenue Gambetta, and there are two Franprix on Rue des Pyrenees) You will also find some great food stores on Rue des Pyrenees for cheese, fruits and vegetables, etc. There is also a Jeff de Bruges chocolate shop further down this street. On Saturdays there is also an outdoor market near Rue Belgrand which is fun to visit.
If you are taking a taxi back to the airport after your stay, be sure to ask the concierge to book you a taxi the night before- they have a service that is cheaper then the taxis that line Rue Pere Lachaise. (around 38 Euro)
When arriving at the airport in Paris, be aware that there should be a fixed price for a taxi into the city, around 50 Euro.
I would 100% stay at this hotel again!!
