Recent guest reviews

We stayed here on a 1 night stay in Paris. Leaving by TGV next day so this seemed best location. It was! Lovely building. Lovely foyer. Very nice staff and easy check-in. Room was very small but clean and functional and a very nice bathroom which didn't feel that small - sliding door into it next to bed - slightly unusual location but fine! Breakfast was grand. Small bit hot food which didn't try. Some meat and cheese, bread and pastries. Nice room. Only negative - no bar! Surprised when got back late at night - but found 1 open nearby after advice from night porter to try near station. Would happily use again.

This hotel is opposite Gare de l’Est and only 5 minutes from Gare du Nord, but better placed than those near Gare du Nord because the area is a bit nicer. Inexpensive, it offers basic, small rooms, clean but a little tired. It is just right if you are getting into Gare du Nord late and want a convenient hotel for site seeing. They have a locked luggage room, so we could leave our cases all day whilst we visited Paris , and picked them up en route back to Eurostar. Staff are really friendly, you can arrive late at night without a surcharge. They offer a 12 Euro breakfast, but bagels or croissants can also be found in the Gare de l’Est for considerably less. The rooms are relatively noisy, you can hear the rumble of the metro, the odd siren and the beds are firm making for a hard nights sleep. But location and price in consideration, this is a good place to stay for a night.

We chose Libertel due to its price and location near Gare de l'Est. It's a very short walk from the hotel to the train station which was very convenient since our train to Stuttgart left at 0630. We figured the location would make it a good hub for our short stay in Paris. The gentlemen at the hotel desk when we arrived and during our stay were very helpful and courteous as we made genuine, but feable attempt to speak French. They were gracious and understanding in dealing with our questions. The rooms were small but clean and comfortable. We look at hotel rooms as simply a place to regroup, recoup and sleep while we're traveling. So, for our needs these rooms were more than adequate, especially considering the price. The french doors/windows opened to a ledge/balcony with really cool wrought iron railings. This allowed us to step out and overlook the street below and the train station area. It was really cool and offered a beautiful night and sunrise view. The breakfasts cost an additional 12 euro, but the convenience and quality of the traditional French/European breakfast was well worth the cost. It was a great way to start the morning. There were plenty of places to eat within a reasonable walking distance. We enjoyed a late night meal at a cafe just down the street. So, my wife and I recommend this place due to the convenience, the quality of the room for the price, the breakfast and the helpful hotel team.

Stayed here to be close to train station. Came into Paris CDG and needed a place to stay close to station because we were catching a train in the morning to Strasbourg. Hotel was very nice and clean and comfortable, and almost directly across from station.

Tiny room. Tiny bed. Outdated bathroom. Very noisy. Not worth the price!!! The staff did not take our complaint seriously. They just told us that they did not hear it. the sliding door between the bathroom and bedroom does not give any privacy.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years, because it is comfortable, clean, and the staff is always welcoming and helpful. It is also in a very convenient area, just opposite the Gare de l`Est station. There is a great choice of eateries all around to choose from, including the very good but rather expensive Gare de l`Est Restaurant if you want a really good meal. Lots of convenient shops around too such as Monoprix just next door. Since I was last there, the hotel has been spruced up somewhat, and the rooms have been modernised - the bathrooms especially are a great improvement. My only criticism would be the breakfast-room, which has been down sized, with small tables bunched together and far too close together. The extra space has been turned into a lounge room which nobody uses. My last stay was most enjoyable as usual, apart from being stuck in the lift for about 10 minutes which I was promptly saved from. No problems about recommending this one.

I booked this holiday as a birthday present for my partner. The location was great as it was only around 20 mins from Paris attractions but was far out enough to not be loud and busy. Staff were friendly and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and valued.

We were initially given a good room but with a slight smell of damp so we complained due to our allergies, we were immediately upgraded to a suite and this room was excellent, with a great view, coffee machine, large bathroom, very comfortable. The service was great. We didn't try the breakfast so can't comment. Very clean establishment. Perfect location for Gare de l'Est or indeed Nord.

It was very valuable for what I paid. The hotel is just opposite to the Gare de l'Est, which is not far from Gare du Nord. There were many restaurants surrounding and the convenient tore (Monoprix) is located next to the hotel. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I was so lucky to get the room whose corridor faced to the train station.

This hotel is perfect. I was on a long journey (America-Europe-Asia-Europe-America), with a 3-day stop in Paris and this hotel ticks all the boxes, their staff is nice and polite, the whole building feels very modern inside, the room I got had a beautiful view to Gare De L'Est, it's clean, perfect size for a solo traveller, all the buses/metro/train lines literally in front of you. I didn't see any dirty carpet or broken items, on the contrary, everything looked brand new. Regarding noise, I live in downtown Los Angeles, I could sleep fine with my window open in a hot August night and never needed my earplugs (as I do in LA..). I can't speak for the breakfast but I found the delicious Italian restaurant on the left, the monoprix on the right and the bakery across the street to be a blessing, you really could not ask for a better location. There's nothing worse than being hungry and still having to walk blocks or do a lot of research online just to get something in your mouth. Or to be in a city that you know has great food, only to end up making the miserable decision of eating at the hotel. I've always found booking hotels in Paris to be a hassle, when they look good, they're missing something crucial like AC, quality wifi, an elevator, or even a restroom!, or when they look too good, they're missing a bit of soul and look too much like a chain that could be in Copenhagen or Nairobi for all you know. This hotel is probably more in the latter category because it feels modern, but the location and view, both undeniably Paris, creates a perfect balance. I'm so glad I found it because I'll skip all the exhausting searching next time and just book it directly.
