The Residence les Gobelins is a small hotel on a quiet, cobblestone street in the 13th run by Jennifer and Philippe Poirier. It has an adorable garden patio, elevator, and brightly-colored rooms with satellite TV, direct-dial phone (with no extra surcharge fees!), and tiled bathrooms. The entire hotel and patio are non-smoking. Rates are from €75 for a single, €87 for doubles, €98 for triples, and €110 for quads. Breakfast is €8, or you can wander up a block to the famous Rue Mouffetard market street. NOTE: It’s on the tiny RUE des Gobelins, not the busy AVENUE des Gobelins!

We stayed here for 5 nights in October 2007.Staff was very friendly, the location is very convenient and the price is less than half of what one pays in a more touristy area. The hotel is entirely non-smoking! The rooms and lobby are a bit spartan, but clean and entirely satisfactory to us.
