Pleasant local, family run hotel

Posted 12-Dec-2016 on Hotels
Hotel Paris Gambetta is convenient for the Metro. It is close to the main entrance to Pere Lachaise cemetery is you want to visit Oscar Wilde's grave amongst many others. The area is good for bars, restaurants and food shops.

Very helpful and personable staff, easy access

Posted 03-Oct-2016
This hotel is in a great location not far from the freeway and a very short walk to the bus that takes you right into the center of Paris. The staff were amazing, very friendly and helpful.

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!!

Apartments are great but watch the shower

Posted 24-Nov-2015 on Hotels
The apartment was lovely - had everything i needed for my stay and was a very comfortable experience. The only issue I had was that the shower had a hole at the bottom and so when I showered in the evening, the whole shower room was flooded with water. As this was night time, I had to walk out the apartment, cross the road tot he hotel, get a mop and then mop the floor as I was wary it would cause a longer term damage and I didn't want to be charged anything extra on that. Because it was in the evneing, ther was only one person at the desk and so they couldn't leave their post and so I had to sort out the problem. So be wary with the shower, I later moved to just using the shower with low power and standing in one corner.

The hotel room looked nothing like the pictures. The room was clean but had a foul odour.The air condition was not working and they did not have a fan to give us.We had to try and sleep in sweltering conditions.Luckily it was for only one night. The only positive about this hotel was the friendliness of the staff.They were estreamly helpful with the baby and providing information on the attractions available. I would not stay in this hotel again it was not worth the price they charged.

Hotel Gambetta, Parisian Charm

Posted 30-Aug-2013
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful, and always available. It was close to the metro and city bus. There are many good places to eat and walk to.
Cons: It was on a noisy street, a fan would help block out the noise, it was very hot and we had to have our windows open. It was very difficult to sleep.
Location: Gambetta neighborhood , the famous cemetery was a stones throw away, a must see.
The Staff was very helpful, eager to help with directions to sights, WiFi use, etc. The room was small and clean, but traveled in August and found the room very hot.To cool the room off you must open the large windows to the street,which quickly fills the room with the bustling sounds of Paris. The room echo's the sounds of dishes clinking, Parisians partying and taxis coming and going. You can even hear fist fights that break out in the night. For a moment it is romantic, but quickly fades to annoyance. A small fan would make the hot nights more tolerable. Still , the experience was one I would never forget, and enjoyed our stay besides the noise from the streets. The staff was terrific, and you are conveniently located to the metro and the bus the 69 that goes to major attractions. There are plenty of good cafe's and the cemetery is a block away and a must see.

Pros: Location, functional, clean, helpful, friendly staff.
Cons: Hand held European shower with short hose.
Location: Alive with authentic local life. Many places to eat. Wonderful Saturday market nearby. Close to town hall on World music Day meant huge street party.
Comfortable, very Parisian, well situated near Metro, modern bathroom. Friendly staff. We were there four nights and were entirely satisfied. Close to the town hall, cafes, restaurants. Has a sense of being among real French life.
