We stayed two nigths at this hostel. It was reasonably good especially in terms of being close to the station and many touristic destinations. We reached our destinations including Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Montmartre by walking. Although the room was clean and warm, its furniture was quite old and basic, particularly the cupboard and the bed. In addition, it was...

Our room was a bit dark, but the radiator (once we figured out how to make it work) was much appreciated. The bathroom was very small (especially the shower) but it worked. Bed was comfortable and the staff very nice and welcoming. Would recommend the patisserie towards République station, and Pizza Pino in République has amazing creme brûlée.

I went for solo traveling and stayed at the dorm room. I enjoyed it perfectly. 1. There is an elevator but small. 2. The room is nice, clean, not too small not too big, and it's always cleaned every day. 3. The breakfast is the champion. My favorite of all. For a price like that the breakfast is more than...

The Hostel is in the center. Listen, there's no better place to stay! Nice hotel, excellent service from all staff, with highlight to the reception. Lots of people complaining about the elevator. I arrived and used the elevator without any problem. The double room is comfortable with good size, very clean bathroom. If I were to suggest anything serious, an...

It´s in a great location and the staff is really friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fine, you get quite a bit, and if you eat outside, just coffee and croissant sets you back about 8 Eur.

So you have to remember this is an inner city 2* hotel so things like tired decor and basic furniture are expected, though bathroom looked new so they are obviously attending to this. But everything else about the hotel is 5star, clean, comfy, friendly polite staff and an excellent location all for a good price for centre of Paris, all...

Staying in Canal Saint-Martin

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighbourhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
