Paris – if you haven’t already been there, you simply have to go; and if you have, then you’re probably ready to go back. No matter what you’re into – art, architecture, fashion, food, nightlife – this city usually ranks among the best in the world. Of course, the iconic landmarks are waiting for you, like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Notre Dame, but even strolling through a quiet park or sipping coffee at a quaint café, you’ll immediately feel the magic that has led countless people to fall in love with the City of Light.
Set in the charming 15th arrondissement, Hôtel Gustave has been quietly making a name for itself among in-the-know travelers. Swanky Left Bank location aside, what gives this place its trendy edge is the Paris Exposition Universelle-themed décor by architect François Leblanc and noted French designers Patrice Henry and Marie-Agnès Louboutin. Housed in a 19th-century building that was renovated in 2015, each of the 32 guest rooms showcases this aesthetic and will send you to sleep each night dreaming of the Belle Époque.
Each of the rooms, outfitted by noted designers Patrice Henry and Marie-Agnès Louboutin, mixes fashion-forward furnishings with statement-making, Eiffel Tower-inspired artworks, themed around the 1889 Exposition Universelle. The soundproofed Classic room comes with a double bed, a generous list of mod cons and a private bathroom with shower. Designed to the same high standard, the larger Deluxe room looks directly out at the Eiffel Tower.
While there is no on-site restaurant, buffet-style breakfasts, loaded with sweet and savory French delicacies (breads, pastries, cheeses, meats and eggs), are served in the elegant dining room every morning between 7:30-10:30am. On the other hand, if you feel like just lounging in bed, room service is available.
Staying in the 15th arrondissement, on the city’s Left Bank, you’ll be close to the Eiffel Tower, the Champ de Mars, the Seine river and the Trocadero. City must-dos include stocking up on fine French cheeses at the Saint-Quentin Market, visiting the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, window shopping on Rue Saint-Honoré and taking a stroll through the stunning Luxembourg Gardens. We also recommend marveling at the Monet, Renoir and Cézanne masterpieces at the Musée d’Orsay, seeking out the excellent chocolatiers in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and admiring the world-famous Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and Winged Victory at the Louvre.
How to Get There
Stayed at short notice here after my flight was delayed by over 24 hours. It is a little expensive but I firmly believe you get what you pay for in most cases. The hotel is very well furnished, immaculately clean and staff are friendly, polite and accommodating. The location is excellent and meant that my flight delay soon resulted in a sight-seeing day in Paris!
There were three adults during our stay, and we chose to get the family suite. I would highly recommend this because it had two rooms and two bathrooms. It was perfect for the women! The hotel room was very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. The hotel staff was friendly and super helpful! They called us a taxi to the airport, and also helped load our luggage into the taxi. I read other reviews saying that the hotel was about 10-12 minutes walk from the eiffel tower, we were there for such a short time that we didn't walk there. It seemed more of like a 20 minute walk to me when I googled it. We also had to uber to a sit down breakfast restaurant since there was only a bakery across the street. The metro was also really close by, but we didn't hear it from our room. I would stay here again for the room and service.
The hotel had a great location. The room we stayed at (64) was quite small but the bathroom was a decent size. The wardrobe was barely enough for one person and we had to keep half the clothes in the suit case.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over Easter and have no complaints at all.
We thought we had booked an Eiffel Tower view room through Ebookers but when we contacted the hotel we hadn’t but they upgraded us anyway to a Special Gustave room with a perfect view of the Tower. Just be careful if booking through Ebookers (Expedia) because they sold a deluxe room to us describing it as having a tower view when in fact it doesn’t.
The room was small, as with any city hotel, but had everything you needed. The hotel was close to the metro (their rail/underground) and within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. We landed at CDG airport and got the train through to the hotel, that was simple enough. We also got the train down to Disneyland Paris (45 minutes away).
The staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful.
The hotel was small but absolutely fine for what you need a hotel for on a city break - resting! We didn’t spend long at all in the hotel so the size didn’t bother us.
There are shops/bars/bakeries nearby.
We would love to return.
Myself and my husband booked this hotel for a weekend in Paris. I can not recommend this hotel enough; lovely staff, clean, close to local metro stations and a 10 minute walk to the famous Eiffel Tower.
The room was perfect for a weekend stay and facilities fantastic. My husband had emailed to ask them to do something special for our first wedding anniversary and we arrived to a lovely romantic setting with a room overlooking the Eiffel Tower.
