Hotel Gavarni, 5, rue Gavarni
As stated before I am booked at a hotel in LaDefense. I have found the above hotel that will comfortable hosue 3 adults for 5 nights. How is the area? Anyone every stated there or known someone who did? Merci
RE: Hotel Gavarni, 5, rue Gavarni
I've never stayed there but IMHO it's a much better location than La Defense. I "googled" it and it looks like a lovely hotel. Bon chance!
Hey! I have looked and looked at all types of hotel, however, for three women
staying in a room (smaller than we are probably used to) for five nights I like
the Hotel Gavarni 5 rue Gavarni--16e. I have a friend whose sister lives in Paris and she said that it is a upscale, residential and dead end of town. What do you think about the area--Village Passy etc. Are we far from shopping and good restaurants?
I think this area is too residential and would be a bit boring for 3 young women.
Have you checked the hotel reviews on www.tripadvisor.com?
There are other neighborhoods which would be more lively and fun than the 16th arrondissement.
You can check CALSF page on Paris. She has some great hotel recommendations.
In Paris you are never far from shopping and good restaurants!
That said, you can always take the Metro quickly to anyplace you want to go. If you like the hotel, find the nearest Metro stations and you are all set. See if there is more than one station nearby because connections are easier on some lines than others. You can get a Metro map when you get your tickets. (Get a carnet of 10 tickets that you can share around.)
You can also view the Metro map at http://www.ratp.fr/
You can also check http://photos.pagesjaunes.fr/ and type in the hotel address. You'll get a photo of the hotel and a little map. Under the photo are arrows. If you click on each arrow, you will see the buildings beside and across the street from your hotel and also up and down the street. It gives you a feel for the neighborhood. You can also check the little map for Metro stations. The only one I noticed nearby was Passey #6 line so you may have to use only that line to and from your hotel.
RE: RE: 16e
This is a very quiet, residential area. You are far from shopping and busy city center! Also note this area doesn't provide many supermarkets if you need to grab something. And the area is expensive.Try the Latin quarter, central, cheaper, and much more going on. Perfect for young girls!
RE: RE: 16e
I wouldn't agree on the supermarket issue as there is a smal/medium supermarket (Monoprix) next door to your hotel. Regarding shopping, there is a fair number of clothes shops (Zara, Muji, Women secret..) next door again. On the other hand, I agree that it is not a lively area but as another member mentionned it, you have got one metro line very closed by (line 6).
RE: RE: 16e
In terms of liveliness and comparing the 16th with the 4th through 6th districts, for example, it's totally a dud. It was great staying near the Eiffel Tower but we found it tiresome taking the metro. There are limited restaurant choices too. If you stay in the center you can pretty much walk out of your hotel and be right there at the sights and cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, etc. in no time.
