I have stayed there in oct. Close to the gar du nord train station. The price is a good value as is the breakfast option. The breakfast is good with a variety of choices. Close to another train station. There are restaurants and bars nearby. This makes a nice option for a few evening drinks and are open until 2 am. If you like action then this is your place. Close to the hitel as well so there is no drunk driving. The location is close enough to the attractions but far enough fir a good rate. It is a small hotel and the staff is very helpful. The room is a little bright but other than that comfortable. Some may be concerned with the area but I ventured out and it was fine. The staff will order a taxi if you need it. Rooms are clean.
we stayed here during our 3 days visit to paris. hotel and room is exactly as per the pictures shown. and its really close to metro, restaurants and bars. did not try breakfast here as there are plenty of cafes around the property. best part was the laundry just next to the hotel. the only bad/negative thing was the neighbourhood in the night, especially after 9 pm. be mindful of using metro or walking around after 9 pm or so, as lots of crazy people standing in groups on the side of the road and at the entry for both metro stations. no one really did anything to us, but i was not at all comfortable walking around with my wife. every evening when we finished dinner or drinks, we just took uber who dropped us by the door. so apart from that this hotel is the best value for money and staff is really friendly and welcoming as well.
Good Service from the people working at the front desk. We were there for a week and saw 3 different employees and all were welcoming and friendly. The elevator is slow and very small, 1 person and 1 suitcase at a time. Breakfast was good. Good location just be careful when you want to the nearest train station Chateau D'Eau. Felt a little uncomfortable walking through there and guys trying to get your attention. Good cafes and lots of places to walk from here. Le Louvre was about a half hour walk. I would probably prefer to be closer to the Siene but very good place and nice bathroom and view for the price. The walls are like portable stationary from by office so it was loud for people coming in late and rooms are small but hey that is paris. Overall liked it and have don't really have any complaints considering the price!!
Booked our standard room months in advance, luckily avoiding a massive price inflation in surrounding areas! We stayed for 2 nights, no breakfast. As i had noticed from previous reviews about eating breakfast in Napoleon next door.. it is much more affordable. Make sure your french is savvy though. Bed was a little hard, but from all the exploring we was doing during the day, sleeping on a rock would have been just as comfy. And also still quiet enough of an evening for a good nights sleep. We also found the light system in our room a little confusing, all the light switches activated all the other lights somehow, so spent a good 5/10 minutes trying to turn all of them off with 1 or 2 switches. Yes the elevator is a little small, but your in the heart of residential paris, what do people honestly expect? You can get 2 adults and 2 small cases in the lift easily. Didnt see this as a problem at all. All in all, i do believe this was a great little base hotel, 5 minute walk to the metro and with enough residential shops, bars & restaurants around everything you needed was not far away. Also loved the quirky reception area! Thank you for having us!
We needed a suite with separate sleeping area for our child which worked well. The hotel was a bit tired and cramped but cheaper than other options near Gare du Nord. Courteous and friendly reception staff. We went room only and got breakfast in the cafe Napoleon at the end of the road which was great
I booked two rooms. Paris is a oricey place and this was reasonably priced. The rooms were modern and pleasant....small but we spent most of our time outside. We did not get the buffet breakfast but had all meals in this crazy busy very French neighborhood. If you stay n a fancy hotel, there is not much difference from one city to the next but here there were parents walking children to school while we had coffee and croissant S outside. There was a tasty bakery where we picked up dessert after dinner. Staff is friendly and helpful
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! Small rooms, elevator big enough for your bags only, BAD, BAD dirty, noisy area! Drunks, homeless, and panhandlers abound. Staff unhelpful, and demanding. Manager and staff will overcharge you so if you stay make sure you get everything in writing. Hard to find, not close to anything including busses and Metro. Very expensive breakfast for what you get. Staff watch as if you are going to steal everything in the place. Difficult to get in and out of the tub to take shower. Very Noisey at night lots of yelling and fighting. This is not a three-star hotel, not even a one star. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY!
Came here for the weekend as a surprise for my boyfriend and have to say the staff were very helpful the room was cosy but big enough and it is within easy reach of everything as the metro station is about a two minute walk away. Really lovely little hotel thank you.
I spent 2 nights in the hotel. The first night was truly challenging in a tiny, noisy room and slightly smelling carpet. The 2nd night I got a new room, facing the backyard. It was bigger and the noise level was significantly down. The staff tried to help whenever possible, e.g. making the room change possible. Breakfast is solid but not comparable with the "classic" Best Western business hotels. The street in which the hotel is based is borderline but there are nicer areas near-by
This is a lovely little hotel from which to explore the city! Me and my girlfriend visited for a weekend and found the hotel most enjoyable. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but just the right size for somewhere to sleep because trust me you be in there much! The hotel is situated in the 10th district in the melting pot of lots of different t communities and cultures! Not what we were expecting and pleasantly surprised. It's also a short walk from the Gard Du Nord so not much call for a taxi! We would recommend getting a Big Bus pass for two days. We used this as our taxi for the daytime as the 2 routes take in most of the cities sights. You can just hop in and off as you please! Plus there is a stop the Gard Du Nord! As must see is the Eiffel Tower at night when it's all lit up. And on the hour it sparkles! Probably the best time I have ever spent with my girlfriend watching it from a park bench. Was just magical and romantic! We're looking forward to going again and staying at this hotel!
