The hotel is at a walkable distance from Louvre and Notredame (2.5kms) and has a bus stand and metro stations in the vicinity. To and fro from the hotel is easy. The hotel is quite close to major stores like H&M, C&A etc and has tons of restaurants, pubs around it which adds to the convenience. The hotel is right next to Lidl which allowed us to purchase a lot of basic items easily. A couple of Indian restaurants next to it helped us immensely! The rooms are basic and a bit cold but adequately furnished for a short stay. Do not expect luxury here. The staff is pretty courteous and helpful. Breakfast is a basic spread. Costs about EUR 60-80 from Airport depending upon the time of travel. Recommended for a stay is looking to stay on a budget and would like a hotel with good connectivity.
I was booked into this hotel for a small conference, so it was not my choice right off, but when I arrived it seemed clean and reasonable, if a bit over designed. The first night it was a bit cold out (50F/18C) so I turned on the heat. In the middle of the night I woke up shivering with cold. The heating system had been set to 28 and yet it only blew out icy cold air. When I informed the staff of this on the second night they claimed they could not fix it that night because there was only one person to "man the desk" and this was at 8pm. The second morning I awoke to a cold shower. I let the water run for 20 minutes with no change in temperature., and they do not handle laundry on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. As further annoyances their WiFi is free and terrible, breaking several times per night as I attempted to do conference calls The staff seem uninterested in addressing any of these issues. I will not stay here again.
Hotel is good. Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights, our room was a cozy little room with basic facilities of air conditioner, coffee maker, locker. Bathroom had hair dryer, was amazed and amused to see no door for the bathroom...lol.. Breakfast was Good. Breakfast area looks small and cute. Very helpful and cheerful staff at the breakfast area. For indians, there are many indian restaurants nearby, the nearest being just next lane. The hotel is very close to the train station which is a good thing. Seems little unsafe during the evening but it just seems....we never faced any issue. Hotel staff was welcoming. We even got breakfast packed as we had to leave very early. Overall a pleasant stay..:)
very disappointed. We usually try to stick with Best Western hotels when we travel as we like a clean reputable establishments without having to break the bank, but this location was a true disappointment. Pictures look very nice, but infact very dirty. They febreeze to mask the musty carpet smell. Their breakfast room is small, which is fine, but there is no little air circulation and the sanity of their food items are questionable. Some of their staff are very helpful, while others answer you with the bare minimum. Advised by a local taking us to the airport at the end of my trip that tourists should stay away from this district as that is not the safest (actually the worst district) to be in. Even though we were quite close to all major destinations, one should try to find a place closer the arc du Triomphe. There are no nearby amenities to buy water, fruit or snacks as the hotel does not have vending machines to accommodate. It is not safe to walk the streets in the evening. There are very few restaurants to get a quick bite if hungry. Definitely not a place for female and children travelers. As regular travelers and open to all cultures, I did not like the location at all and felt that is was not a safe place to be. We didn't open the curtains at all. One of the main reasons why I picked this location is bc we are loyal to BW and bc they allowed a 3rd person in the room when all other hotels asked us to book a second room. If I knew what I got myself into, I would have gotten a second room at a different location.
This hotel is in the heart of Paris. If you think the heart of Paris is the Eiffel Tower or the Champs Elysee, you probably don't know Paris that well. A couple of minutes from Strasbourg Saint-Denis, you are at the lively heart of real Paris where people and cultures and foods and nightlife mix to create a fantastic place to be. The hotel itself is modern and well kept. Our room as a decent size for Paris - which means that if you are not used to Paris, you may well think it is small but, the more you come here, the more you understand the architectural and structural reasons that hotel rooms are not the size that they are in other countries. As it is, it was a good size and had good facilities including a Nespresso coffee machine. The beds were comfy and the aircon worked! The bathroom was smart and they had a good selection of shampoos and *hurray* actual soap bars (take note other hotels!). At night, the area outside was quiet - which is rare in this area of Paris but is a benefit of this hotel being off the main road and not on it! Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. A buffet affair served in the cellar with bread, meats, yoghurts, cheeses, eggs and cereals. If I had one gripe, it wasn't with the staff or the hotel - it was with the other guests. Before you start shouting at the staff for things like hot milk - actually shouting at them - firstly, check your manners because they are people just like you and could do with being shown some respect and, secondly, maybe check the big thing of hot milk yourself? Some people could really do with a crash course in how to behave when out in public! Anyway, back to the hotel. All the staff were generous with their time and information. They were friendly and only too willing to help. My usual preference is for Accor hotels (Ibis or Mercure) and I think this is my first Best Western - certainly my first in many years - and it has made me rethink how I book. I would come back here in a heartbeat - in fact, I can pretty much guarantee that I will be back this year at least once. My son rated it 10 - even when I told him that the scoring was out of 5!
The hotel os well located an near the gare de l'Est and Notre Dame. At check-in we were friendly welcomed. The hotel has a modern appearence but you notice that it's become old and a renovation should be done. The room was very small. When we arrived the coffee machine and dishes in the room were dirty. In the toilet no soap/shampoo in the shower. After the next day cleaning in the morning the soap/shampoo bottle was still empty. A toilet brush was also missing. I had to ask for one in the reception. The receptionist wasn't very friendly and gave me a improved, dirty brush. Breakfast is in the cave. Only a few tables are available and if you have bad luck you don't find a free place (was our case on one day). Options are very limited: some juices, coffee and milk, bread (baguette croissant and toast), some yoguhrts and cooked eggs. All in all I don't think this hotel deserves the 3 stars. It is more 2-2,5 stars.
Mostly adequate hotel about 15 mins walk from Gare du Nord and 30 mins from most north bank tourist stuff. Sketchy area, but convenient. Clean enough and the rooms, while tiny, are adequate. Big problem is the wifi. You have to fill out log-in forms on every device, each day. Then, if you're nonactive on any device for 5 minutes, it logs you out and you have to log back in again manually. If you depend o being available to people calling on Skype or other VOIP apps, this hotel will not work for you. Even if you just want to surf the net and check mail, it's a problem.
Hotel is in a good location had the metro + buses and shopping near by and good bars + restaurants the room in the hotel was very clean and had a coffee machine for the morning time the continental breakfast was not bad either + the hotel staff very good & helpful
Super Service Minded Staff & Clean Rooms! Right from the moment we arrived the staff was not shy to ask us questions about our stay and what we planned for our visit. They then took the initiative to research the best and most affordable ways to go about our sightseeing, leisure activities, routes on where to walk around the city, bus/train routes and restaurants They helped my husband to find places to play poker and helped me to find the best way walk to get to my course at L'ecole Vancleef & Arpel. Having them google search for us in French made our trip so much more relaxing because it was less headache for us because then we didn't need to think about if we were making the most affordable and logical choice. Wonderful Staff!!! The rooms were clean and tidy, nothing out of the ordinary spectacular but cozy.
This is a convenient hotel if you are keen to have Indian Food only...then a visit to Passage Brady ( I have done a separate review of a Pondicherry Restaurant) which is 2 streets away from this Hotel. Apart from that some rooms in this Hotel are very small and none have any cupboards...so Ok for short stays...Coffee machine is very helpful in the room with refills everyday....Very close to Starsbourg--Saint-Denis Metro.. and good connectivity to most attractions in Paris by Metro or Bus...Do but a 2-3 days bus pass since there is lot of travelling by these modes to be done.
- Close to Galeries Lafayette and Forum des Halles
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
- 24-hour business center
