Recent guest reviews

Hotel perfectly located near the historic center but modernized perfect location to get around the city

The hotel, it self, is good, The rooms are realy small, but has all you need for a short stay. Bathroom is too tight and uncomfortable, but has a good shower. However the staff is the worse ever.

Stayed in a triple room, with 2 twins and a sofa bed. Size of room was ok, not the smallest in paris. Location was close to gare du nord for airport. Not in the best neighborhood for tourist, but easy public transportion. Booked this hotel because read review of hotel being recently remodeled.

Overall the experience was good. Apart from the age of the building which is obvious from its exterior and the old carpets in the common areas, the room was renovated and in good and clean condition. The staff was friendly and helpful. The amenities average and the TV... French, but after all we didn't go there to spend any time in the room other than having a good night's sleep. The location is perfect to go anywhere you wish. I would recommend to start from Monmartre and the Basilisque de Sacre Coeur which is only two stations from La Chapelle metro station, two minutes away from the hotel.

We had a great room--stayed in Paris for 485 Canadian for two people for 5 nights. Great Value! It's. Lose to Nordic de Gard train station- so you can take the subway anywhere. Yummy ethnic food in this area.

I had an early flight from CDG and the hotel proximity to the La Chapelle RER B made the experience painless The bed was comfortable and the room temperature controls allowed me a very restful night despite the heat of Paris in the summer

Hotel was below average. There was an odor in the room and it wasn't in the safest part of the city.

The inside of the hotel is fine and it is nice the north station and Metro are very close but the hotel is not in a good part of town to see the best of Paris.

The Hotel was clean and the staff was nice. The locations was very convenient for the trains.

These pictures make this hotel look much better than it is. It is slightly in a sketchy neighborhood, its staircase is dark and occasionally uneven, elevator is too small to lift more than 150kg (wherein a wheel chair might not fit) and TV in each room is extremely big compared to the size of the whole room (which might not be negative for some) and some thing in the room does not quite work perfectly (but not bad enough to report). I noticed how some of the motion sensor light switches didn't quite work and their hallway is narrow and extremely dark. The first room with a queen size bed had a very thin wall and you might need to close the bathroom door and then volume up TV not to hear anything from the next room. BUT if you are a type of person who needs a place as a base camp for going around the city of Paris, I will still recommend this hotel. It posts four good points:1) location, 2) staff, 3) basic cleanness, 4) price. It is located ten minutes walk from Gare du Nord and two minutes from La Chapelle (line 2). You can basically go around the whole city of Paris counter clockwise from taking the line two et al or go straight to the heart of it or other parts of europe by using Gare du Nord. Staff did not strike me as being professional but all of them were friendly and helpful. That's, I think, a huge plus in this city. They bring you clean sheets and clean towels. That's all I ask from a good place to sleep. Finally, it's very affordable. You pay this price and they leave you alone. You don't have to think about how much tip you have to give to the porters and make some small talk with the staff. They leave you to whatever you need to do in Paris and I am glad that I stayed in that place.

Check in was easy! I had shown up really late and was told to pay. I had already paid months in advance and this was clarified with a phone call. Room was super small, great T.V. but no channels, no bathroom door. Elevator was the smallest I had ever seen, no plump people allowed, people in general questionable. Near Gare Du Nord and metro. No deposit required. Staff were friendly and helpful!

The hotel stated that the airport shuttle was an amenity. I sent several emails to request information prior to leaving for the trip. The email replies did not mention a fee but mentioned that I can take a shuttle from the airport. There were no shuttles at the airport when I arrived. I had to pay $50 for a taxi to get to the hotel. That was not the way I wanted to start my vacation. I provided the hotel clerk with a copy of my email to which his reply was "We do not have airport shuttles". So why is it listed as an amenity?

there were No outlets, the place was located in a weird part of town and the staff was not that friendly

The location was great, just a few minutes walk from the Gare du Nord. The room was clean and had air conditioning, a plasma TV, and a private bathroom. The only drawback was a strange shower "curtain" that made it impossible to shower without getting water on the floor, but outside of that, we had no complaints. The staff was helpful and friendly to two non-French speakers.

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the train station and advertisement of a business center. I needed to do some paperwork during my stay. Unfortunately, there was 1 computer near the front desk for internet use, but no printing or other business center features. When I reported my room phone inpoperative to the front desk, I was simply handed the desk phone to make my calls while standing at the counter, and no possibility to receive calls. Also, I arrived by train before check in. The luggage storage area for guests checking in is the floor next the check in counter. No security at all for unattended items. The hotel in inexpensive and fine for those just looking for a cheap room. But, if you've got business I wouldn't recommend it. The staff was as helpful as they could be with what they had, so another plus. The location just a few blocks from the train station is convenient for transient guests.

The hotel was walking distance from the train station (Gard) right in the Indian section of Paris. Great for getting your curry fix. But the hotel consists of two separate buildings. We had to go to one a few doors down to check in and get assistance and our building housed our room and the breakfast. There was remodeling going on so the common areas were not nice but our room was just completed and although small it was nice. Staff was terrific. Easy access to mass transportation. We used Chappelle. Fantastic fresh from the oven chocolate croissants and other baked goods in the a.m. along with juice, coffee, and cereal.
