Hotel Gavarni

Located near the Eiffel Tower and the OECD, 10min away from the Champs-Elysées, the hotel Gavarni, offers a haven of peace and refinement : 21 rooms and 4 luxurious suites, fully air-conditioned, free WiFi, a bar, a patio and a conference room...

The hotel is involved in an important Parisian ecotourism project for sustainable development and environmental protection. It is 100% carbon balanced, uses 100% renewable energy and 100% eco-friendly detergents. Moreover, it has a number of great 'green' details like the organic and fair trade breakfast.

Their commitment to the cause has allowed them to become the first independent hotel in Paris to be awarded the 'European Ecolabel', a certified label which rewards products and hotels that follow a strict criteria of efficiency and environmental protection.

Glad to see this hotel mentioned here. I've stayed there and I enjoyed the stay very much.
I don't know how they do it but they manage to have a very comfortable elegant hotel which is eco-friendly at the same time, awarded by the ecolabel.
I know how drastic the ecolabel is so congratulations!
