Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What and disgusting and horrible place with the worst service I’ve ever had. Do not come here. Go anywhere but here. The room was a joke. The bed was a joke. It was not clean. The hotel was a joke they charged us for parking but the lifts to the car park didn’t work. The lift to our rooms didn’t work. We was late for breakfast by 3 minutes and they charged me for the coffee. THREE minutes. We called the front desk and asked to to let us know when our food delivery had arrived and the receptionist said no I’m busy can’t call your room. What a pathetic disgusting joke of a complaint. The rooms also look like prison cells. No fridge in the room. They charge €3.20 per small bottle of water. Do NOT stay here. Oh and we could hear the next use the toilet.. because they have joining doors in the rooms.

Hotel's Favourite
Great location. 1 block from the Metro station. On the canal with lots of food options nearby. The neighborhood is largely residential with lots of little bakeries and very safe. Breakfast was fine with eggs, beans, sausage, several types of bread, cereal, fruits, yogurts, juices and coffee. The checking and out was super fast and no hassles at all. They arranged for our taxi on our last day (fixed price to the train station/airport). Staff very helpful and spoke fluid English. Rooms are standard but relatively new. This hotel is a good choice over the more expensive hotels in the historial districts. Lots of nearby parks that turned out to be remarkably enjoyable walks. The Park de la Villette houses the amazing Paris Phiharmonic. It is an architectural masterpiece that goes under the radar of most visitors to Paris. It is a super modern building decorated with Escher motifs. It feels like you are inside one of his surreal paintings. Also, the other nearby park, Buttes Chaumont has a Central Park vibe with the classical Paris elegance. It even has a transplanted giant sequoia that is doing very well in the Paris climate. From the center of the park you get a great and different view of Paris. Definitely would recommend this hotel and would gladly return on a future visit.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. It is in a nice area, near to riquet and crimee metro stops (metro line 7) We had a lovely view of the canal and thee was no noise. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was quite a lot of choice for breakfast and the wifi was good.

I am not sure why this place is rated so high, I have never seen such a terrible Holiday Inn location. Over the course of a 4 night stay, we had to switch rooms twice -- not ideal with two small children. The first room we got was not cleaned well and the washroom had mold. The vent in the room also had black mold. I asked to switch and we were moved to a different room. I wish I had taken pictures but Holiday Inn's have a reputation and I thought this was a one off... how wrong I was! On the 3rd night we discovered that our room had mice which had eaten through my snacks for my children and left poop behind! Now this is Paris and we were out and about exploring, walking over 10 kms daily with small children so after doing all of that, we had to pack up and switch rooms again on our last night there at 1 am in the morning! Not ideal at all. Now we were split up and given two different rooms. The washrooms were again gross and had bugs as well. I am not sure why this is rated so highly and why no one has posted images of the gross washrooms. I will post mine. The breakfast is nice but that's about it.

Responded 4 weeks ago
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Sharma, We sincerely empathize with the disappointment you experienced, and once again, we extend our apologies for any inconvenience encountered during your stay. Allow me to clarify some points. Upon your checkout, we already processed a 50% refund for the last night of your stay. Additionally, as promised, I reached out to you within 48 hours and proposed a further 20% discount for the third night, along with offering an additional room free of charge in an effort to address the issues and make amends for the latter part of your stay. Regarding the mouse, the special company did not find any evidence of infestation in the room. Given that the terrace is adjacent on the 1st floor, the mouse could have entered from outside. Although this does not excuse the situation in any way, we wanted to provide this clarification nonetheless and let you know we already took actions about this. We greatly value your time and feedback, which you have expressed across various platforms and directly to IHG, despite having my contact information and our prompt response to your concerns. We acknowledge that unforeseen issues can arise, despite our best efforts to prevent them. Since January 2024, we have been undergoing bathroom refurbishments due to the hotel's 20-year tenure. Room renovations were completed in 2019, followed by updates to all common areas in 2023. Renovations are an ongoing process, and we regret that you were unable to experience the completed bathrooms during your stay. It is always our endeavor to ensure guest satisfaction, as evident from the feedback regarding our team and service. Having dissatisfied guests is never our intention. Consequently, we have also applied a 50% discount to the first two nights of your stay. We hope to have the opportunity to restore your faith in our establishment in the future and provide you with the exceptional experience that we strive to deliver to all our guests. We still hope you can see our commitment to customer service before, during and after our customers' stay, which often distinguishes good customer service from bad when issue is raised. Warm regards, Chloé BUI

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights this month with my family. I would have given it 4 stars but that 1 extra star is only for Marc and Albane who were quite nice and helpful. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area with on the bank of canal where you can take a nice stroll. Metro and supermarkets are at walking distance which is very convenient. There is a police station nearby so the area feels safe. English breakfast spread is good. Only things is they didn't have a wardrobe in the suite room although there are some shelfs. Overall it was a good experience with holiday inn.

My family loved this hotel and location. Family of 4 in the room and it worked well. Easy to get to with Requiet metro 200m away. Staff were fantastic. Breakfast was very good. Very clean and warm, in December, and I would definitely stay here again.

This was my third vacation stay at this hotel. I just love the area it is located at and everything the neighborhood has to offer. The hotel staff are amazing and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasurable one. Breakfast in the morning will not disappoint you, one of the best I’ve ever had at a IHG hotel. Easy access to the metro station gets you to all Paris has to offer. Keep up the great work and will see you all again soon. Thank you all. Michael Rivers Lake Isabella, California.

A good random find. Good location not too far from amenities. Nice area to walk round being on a canal. Room was nice, size good, bathroom okay, bed comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. Staff were all great and helpful. No problem not being able to speak French as most staff have some English skills. For what I paid I was happy with the hotel and amenities. Bar was okay as well for a drink at the end of the day. Good lifts to the floors. Quiet enough at night. I would go back again if I had the opportunity.

The food in the restaurant was NOT great-breakfast and dinner. Not a lot of options so suffered through it. Very busy. Room was fine for one night. Was sent a document detailing transportation directions. Could not open the document. Fortunately found information from others on this site that ended up being perfect information. Very easy, and free transportation to hotel. A little walking but that is okay. Take the free train to stop PF then walk from there. This train is really for airport parking.
