With the Gare de L'Est -sorties- (exits) 4 and 5 leading right into this hotel, the Holiday Inn Paris - Gare de l'Est is understandably in demand. The balconied exterior reflects the grandeur of the 19th century railway station opposite, while rooms have been brought into the 21st century with contemporary light fixtures and flashes of red on the walls. Internet, secretarial and courier services are all on hand for business travel, while families can save a few Euros as kids eat free here. Drink in the atmosphere - and the local red wines - at the Lobby Bar, beneath original stained glass windows, while planning your days and nights ahead in the City of Light.

Neighborhood
The 10th arrondissement neighborhood which surrounds the Holiday Inn Paris - Gare de l'Est is transport-central because, in addition to Gare de l'Est across the street, major railway hub and Eurostar terminal Gare du Nord is less than a mile from the hotel. Wander along the nearby Canal Saint-Martin for choice Parisian restaurants, or stray a little further into Montmartre - home to the stunning Sacre-Coeur Basilica and the famous red windmill of nightclub Moulin Rouge - situated just over a mile from the hotel.
Hints and tips
Note that if you wish to avoid passing train noise, ask for a room above the seventh floor or one that does not overlook the street.

Dining options are numerous, but for home-cooked Italian penne and filetto, try Piccola Italia - close to Gard de Nord - for unpretentious eats and a genuine family-run atmosphere.

Good choice!!

The rooms are small but everything is small in Paris and the price "the best". The rooms were clean, front desk was very helpful on everything. I did not expend much time on the hotel, only nights. You got everything you need around: restaurants, pharmacies, metro station (tickets), taxis, restaurants, banks. You are middle of everything (10 to 20 minutes on metro to any place) We got three rooms, we got a A/C problem with one of the rooms but they sent somebody right away. I will be back next time.

GREAT!!!!!

The hotel was great! We went to Paris to travel around the city and it was great that the Metro station was just a short walk away. The staff was very helpful and spoke great english. The rooms were a bit small but nothing that makes it bad. We loved the stay the rooms were very quiet to the outside world.

Very Pleased

The hotel was recently renovated, and had great style. The location couldn't be beaten as it was directly across from a major train/metro/bus stop. It was very easy to get everywhere we wanted. The room was very neat and clean. Very happy with the service. We had a great view from the 8th floor that included Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur.

Meals seemed to be a bit cheaper in restaurants in this neighborhood than the main tourist neighborhoods.

"Tres bon" stay

We really liked the hotel, although the rooms were very small. They cleaned the rooms everyday, the staff was very helpful. I probably would have liked it better if breakfast was included. As such, the breakfast that they did offer was very expensive, and we chose not too eat at the hotel. We didn't think it was noisy at all. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much.

Don't eat at the hotel, there are plenty of 'brasseries' close by, especially by Gare de Nord, where the food is great, and the price is much lower.

Great stay!

Stayed at the hotel for four nights. As mentioned by others, easy trip to CDG airport. I didn't see anything wrong with the location: 15-20 min walk to the Seine/ center city. Rooms were clean, didn't spend much time in the room, so the small size didn't bother us. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was 15 euro, but who would eat at the hotel (expensive services are a given at any hotel) when you're in Paris? Great value for the money paid.

Paris Hotel

Overall excellent location next to train station with lots of restaurants and shops close by. Hotel was clean and nice. Misunderstanding with hotel staff. We were told "everything" was prepaid and led to believe breakfast was included but it was NOT.

Very handy to all forms of transportation (bus,metro and train)Charles deGaule airport 35 minutes by Metro. Buy Bus/Metro pass for Euro 5.50 per day, get off / on where,when you want. We think best way to see Paris.

great location and price

The location was great, easy to get to from the airport and downtown. It is possible to walk to centre of the city, it takes about 40 min. The subway is much quicker, and there is 3 enterences to the subway station literally infront of the hotel. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Only downside is that the internet isn't free. Though there is a free wireless access if your in the lobby.

Paris: Prime location

We didn't stay much at the hotel. We just needn't a place to rest and store our stuff. The receptionist was extremely friendly but housekeeping wasn't that nice. She actually woke us up and when asked if she could come back later, she handed us towels, took the garbage and said she couldn't. Well, all in all, I would stay in that hotel again due to its central location. Right across from the metro. I do have to mention that breakfast was quite expensive 15 euros.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Use the metro. It is cheapt transportation. 24 euros for the whole week and ask directions from the information counter. If you can walk, then I don't recommend renting a car.

great location, metro right outside

I got there at 9 am after an overnight flight and was able to have the room right then. Gare de l'Est is right across the street and Gare de Nord is 10 minutes walk, ideal for taking the RER to Charles de Gaulle Airport. Ride to airport takes barely 30 minutes and runs every five or so minutes. The location in itself is nothing to brag about, so take a metro to better parts. I used to choose hotels near the Opera because the Roissy bus goes there from Charles de Gaulle. Those hotels were always hidden in a nearby street and hard to find. This location is definitely better.
