Avalon Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Recently stayed in July 2017 for 5 night stay. Hotel very clean and comfortable, excellent continental breakfast and staff very helpful - in particular Clement. Just a 3 minute walk from Gard Du Nord Station and 5 minutes to the Metro. Also coach trips to Versailles and Disney land pick up outside bakery 1 minute walk. Excellent budget hotel centrally based to explore Paris.
The Avalon on Rue de Magenta is comfortable, quiet and serves a great basic continental breakfast. Our room had a small kitchenette and a great bathroom, a reasonable bed and good air conditioning. The neighborhood is colorful and fun with lots of interesting cafes. You have easy access to the bus system (the stop is right in front of the hotel!) the metro is an easy walk and there are two train stations nearby. For our four night stay this was an excellent choice.
We stayed here with our two teenage kids this summer for couple of nights and it was nice that all of us had 3 separate sections in our quadruple room. No air conditioner but once we opened all windows, there was a nice breeze in the room. The hotel is in a bit scratchy area but you can expect that from being close to the train station. We were travelling to Germany after so thought would be good to stay close to train but I wish we stayed a bit closer to the centre as every day we either had to walk for 30-40 minutes or take Metro to get to all the action.
Took a chance on booking this for our 3 night stay as was fairly last minute. Very close to Gare du Nord- approx 5 min walk, which was excellent as we'd taken the train from the airport. Not the largest of rooms but very clean, bed comfy and shower , w/c and basin en suite. Great value for money as close to metro too so easy to access all sights/museums etc. Good selection of restaurants nearby. Only negative was lack of air conditioning which given warm nights, resulted in poor sleep . We slept with window open, but took a while to get used to road and city noise. However would definitely recommend this hotel.
We stayed in a double room on the first floor of this hotel overlooking the street. Whilst good to have a view the noise was terrific! There was no air conditioning in the room so we had to keep windows fully open all night allowing the noise of Paris into the room and by heck, we might as well have been sleeping on the street itself. We found it very difficult to sleep and were there for five nights. There was no kettle or complimentary coffee/tea in our room though you can go down to foyer and get one. The room itself was clean and the shower etc., Staff were pleasant and the breakfast fine - self service. Unfortunately I wouldn't go there again because of the noise and area generally which was loud - a fight outside the hotel one morning, lots of shouting. So kind of atmospheric if you want to be in a boisterous part of the city.
This has got to be the worst hotel I have ever been to !! It is in the red light district ! The room was awful to be honest we left our bags there and went and found another hotel. There was no way I was going to sleep in that room it smelled like salt and vinegar crisps!! The sheets were stained with, well god knows what to be honest I wouldn't have let my dog sleep on them !! Avoid at all costs !! Lovely hotel a few stops away on the metro called 7 Eiffel 100% better for not a lot more money try there first xx good luck x
Nice hotel very close to Gare du Nord station! Very friendly staff! Clean rooms! Good amenities in bathroom! Safe box in room! However no air con availabke which is difficult in hot days! If you stay in the top floor you have to climbe stairs with your luggage! However this is common in Paris!
Just a 5 minute walk from the Gard Du Nord station it was a good location. Staff were friendly and check in was easy. Complimentary water and wifi welcomed. Whilst the room was modern and clean with high summer temperatures no air con or fan made for an unpleasant sleep. The room was unbearable to be in. Breakfast was simple but nice.The bonus was paying a little extra to keep the room for a late check out as our flight was in the night.
This hotel is close to the stations Gard de Nord and Gard de Est. both within walking distance. We had a room upgrade because the double rooms were not ready which was lovely. Had Ensuite bathroom with shower which had the complimentary shower gel and body lotion. Room had a kettle and tea and coffee. The hotel is on 6 floors and seems to be set out nicely the decor is good. Breakfast was buffet style with cereals pastries, fruit and yoghurt , bread meat and cheese. Coffee machine and juice machine was easy to use. Hotel had a mini bar by reception. Nice area to seat and relax. Free wifi throughout hotel. Internet room with computer is available. It was ashame there was no air conditioning as the room got very hot and we had to keep the window open at night but it is on a busy room so was very noisy with window open
A real pit stop trip to Paris wherein I didn’t venture much further than from the immediate Gare du Nord area but the Avalon hotel was a good choice. You can throw a stone at the station so it couldn’t be more perfectly placed. The rooms weren’t huge but space was amicable but the bed was comfortable for a good nights sleep. The room was clean. Given we booked really late, the triple room was prices and definitely value for money in what is a very expensive city. Breakfast was included but we didn’t make use of it due to an early start heading home and there was a small bar in the hotel; 7 beers between us later though and they had run out!!! They definitely need a bigger fridge. Fortunately the hotel is surrounded with eateries and bars. No luxuries here but a pleasant hotel and would absolutely recommend to fellow travellers. Would happily return.
