I stayed here one night with 5 of my friends and we booked 3 rooms. ***A warning to all other tourists, the taxi outside the gare du nord tried to charge us 100 euros to get to our hotel and the second taxi man charged us 60 euros (we were tourists who did not know better) and he took us on a big loop, we even saw the same landmark twice. The taxi trip should have literally taken 5 minutes and not have cost more than 15-20 euros.***
Anyway the hotel is little but quaint and the staff were lovely. Due to a misunderstanding we actually booked 2 instead of 3 rooms but the staff helped us book our third room with little fuss.
The rooms were alright, clean beds and enough space, and were also warm enough, although the staff happily provided us with extra duvets when we asked.
It's unfortunate the hotel is located in such a rundown area. When we stepped outside we found a homeless man lying on cardboard in the middle of the pavement fast asleep. Otherwise, the hotel makes for a comfortable stay. Another plus is that it's located really close to the metro.
My friends and I had an odd experience in the hotel, we took photos in the elevator (as girls do...) and in each of them we saw what looks like a seventh person with brown hair - bizarre! (I've uploaded the picture, see bottom left) I don't believe in ghosts or things like that but I still can't work out who/what is in the picture. Odd... :)
