A friendly welcome, but that's all.

We got a very pleasant and helpful welcome to the hotel, and initially it looked like any tourist class hotel we've stayed in before. However when we got to the room it was shoddy, cramped, with no air-con (in sweltering heat), grubby carpet, no wardrobe or drawers, and just about big enough for the bed. The bathroom was similarly tiny, no shelves for holding anything. The place was clean, but it was dark, and because the room fronted a communal path, (shoddy American motel style) there was lots of foot noise. The hotel is across the road from a huge railway junction, so the squealing of trains was non-stop. I know Paris is expensive and accommodation can be touch-and-go, but Tim Hotel Gare du Nord was a step too far in the wrong direction. I would challenge anyone fortunate enough to have the means of holidaying in Paris to stay in this hotel and enjoy it. Thanks but no thanks m

Stayed at this hotel towards the latter end of my trip to Paris. Room, Bathroom were small but given that I wasn't going to spend much time in the room, it did not matter. Train station is 5 minutes away. Staff was extremely helpful.

Convenient to train station

Average hotel with a nice view. They advertised free wifi but it was only available in the lobby and not in the room at all. The staff was helpful.

bad choice

Aside from the helpful and friendly staff who spoke English well, the hotel was a poor choice. The location is in a rough and noisy area with constant police sirens. After nightfall the walk from the station to the hotel is best avoided. The room was bare-bones. No air conditioning meant the windows needed to be open and making the outside noise much louder. The pictures in the advertisement are misleading as it depicts a quaint and cozy scene that is anything but. We checked out the next day and stayed in better accommodations in a safer and cleaner location for roughly the same price. Overall, it was overpriced. For what it was it should have been much less.

Clean, but small

A little distance from the main part of the city, but very close to a metro stop, which is most convenient and cheap.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Lots of restaurants at walking distance but beware of Chettinadu they are a bunch of crooks. Hotel has breakfast if you don't book the room with the breakfast it will be €13 per person for continental breakfast, better off going out.

Very good location for train travel. It is within walking distance of Gare de Nord & L'Est, Being on vacation and in Paris, you do not need to stay in your room. Get out and enjoy the city. This hotel is meant for having a place to sleep comfortabily. Only down side was the bathroom was small and had some problems with the shower door.

Short stay in Paris

Great for short stays. 5 min. or less walking from Gare de Est, so the rest of the city opens up to you. Only down side is the in-hotel breakfast, very expensive for what is offered. I would expect more for 13 Euros. Room is clean and suited for "no files" travelers. Shower was a little small. The old phone booth had more room. Bed was comfortable. Heater worked well to keep the room warm. Not a room to stay and relax in, after all you are in Paris, get out and experience the city! Don't just hold up in the room.

Chez Papa is a good place to eat and drink. The Oldarki beer is now my most second favorite beer (Guinness is still #1 to me). It beat out the German hefeweizen in my book.

Good location, so-so neighborhood, decent facility.

My wife and I are budget-conscious travelers in our 30's. This hotel worked well for us overall. Its best virtues are its relatively-reasonable price, and its proximity to Gare du Nord Station. We arrived from London to Gare du Nord via Eurostar. 20 minutes after getting off the train, we had dropped our bags at the hotel and were ready to tour Paris. As for the hotel itself, it's in good enough condition. Every front desk attendant we saw spoke English and were polite and helpful. The breakfast options (free) consist of coffee, juice, yogurt, 2 types of cereal, small slices of ham, croissants and other pastries. Our room was typical for Europe: Very cozy with a tiny private bathroom. The shower was smaller than a phone booth, and might present a challenge for people with disabilities. BBC was the only English-speaking TV channel we got. There was no alarm clock provided in the room. There is free wifi, but the connection was slow and frequently interrupted. The neighborhood was a mixed bag: There are things like Adults-only shops mixed in with a diverse array of nice restaurants. We saw a handful of people who looked homeless, and saw some sketchy-looking guys hanging around the train station late at night. No problems though. There are mini-supermarkets nearby where you can pick up drinks, snacks, beer and wine at relatively reasonable prices. There is an Avis/Budget rent-a-car place nearby, which also had English-speaking attendants. The hotel's proximity to Gare Du Nord paid off for us again at the end of our stay because there are express trains to CDG airport which depart from there. We made it from the front door of the hotel to CDG in about 45 minutes. If all you need is a decent place to sleep and shower, this hotel is fine.

Good visit to Paris

A nice hotel situated centrally in Paris. Chateau Landon underground station is nearby. The nearby railway posed no noise problem. Breakfast was ok. When we returned to the hotel around 4 in the afternoon the rooms weren't done. There were some loose tiles in the bathroom of 116. Great value for the price.
