Budget hotel in a tranquil green setting in central Paris
Paris is a lively and busy city and the 11th arrondissement on the Right Bank is especially so. The Bastille-Oberkampf areas are trendy and popular with locals, they offer an authentic Parisian atmosphere – but, unlike the adjoining Marais district, without the crowds of tourists, without being overpriced. Having fun and enjoying the nightlife is one thing, but when it comes to choosing a hotel a quiet location is more than desirable. The charming Garden Hotel has it all, the best of both worlds: it’s close to the action and there is good access to all the sights of Paris, but its location is a green and lush haven of tranquility in the center of the hustle and bustle of the city. Standing in a quiet street overlooking a beautiful park, the hotel provides an ideal setting to relax and wind down after a busy day or a night out.
It’s a cheap 2-star budget hotel, but nevertheless very stylish, with that unique Paris boutique hotels feel. It is in a charming Haussmann residence, with rooms ranging from single to triple and quadruple. The interior design is simple but elegant, contemporary and practical. Rooms are airconditioned – which is not the case in most 2-star hotels – and there is free Wi-Fi, television and phone in the rooms, windows are double-glazed, the bathrooms are modern and clean. The rooms overlook the green park and some have their private little terrace – an ideal place to have your breakfast in the morning, listening to the birds sing.
The Garden Hotel is great either for young or older travelers, individuals, couples or families. It’s a family friendly place and a baby cot can be provided on request. It’s an ideal base to explore Paris, to visit the sights, monuments and other attractions, to enjoy excellent cafés and restaurants, to have a great night out – everything is close-by, yet, you’re in a quiet and calm setting. And, best of all, it’s very reasonably priced, you definitely get value for your money!
