I stayed one night at this hotel with my family. It wasn't bad for one night but would have some drawbacks for longer stay. Our room was very small and has no window (besides the one opening to dark center hall). You wouldn't want to be in it except sleep time. May be other rooms could be better. It had an LCD TV with main intl. channels. The room and beds were clean. The bathroom was very small too. There wasn't a bathtub, but a narrow shower cabin. It was clean and had enough towels and other stuff. Staff was OK but they didn't want to give me any suggestion about car parking. Perhaps didn't want to take responsibility. Yes, there's a parking problem if you have a car. But it's usual for Paris, not specific to this area. It's close to Gare du Nord and metro station. So it's so easy to get there and go around. Area is quiet and seemed safe.

Room Tip: Ask for a street-side room

Just booked this hotel by means of Neckermann / Thomas Cook for a few days on my own in Paris. Had a superdeal but didn't really know what to expect. Was quite amazed by the quality of this rather low budget hotel in Paris.

I was kindly and correctly welcomed by the staff. They seem to be helpfull and are also in for a small talk. You can deposit your luggage in case the your room isn't ready yet (from 14.00 on).

The rooms are rather small. Small double sized beds, but it seems enough. You have a small wardrobe to put some stuff in. You have a separate toilet. The shower and slink are located together in another place, but in a way you really can handle it. The room was very (very) clean. The bed was made up every day, the waste paper basket was emptied and it seemed as if the washing place was cleaned when I returned. There is a small television (LG Flatscreen) on the wall and you have about 18 channels, most of them in French. But some of them in another language (German, Spanish, Italian). My room was located on the third floor. There is no airco but most of the time you don't need in Paris and the staff made sure that the window was opened, so you had fresh air. At night it's better to close the window, because the street is a bit noisy. I was frightened a bit, becaused I read in some reviews (here or on other sites, I don't remember) that it would be very noisy in the hotel ... And yes: if the neighbours are really loud (laughing, having fun, ...) you can maybe hear it, but it's really not that bad. I experienced allready other stuff in other places. I slept really wel in fact and I'm a bit sensitive to noise. I think the hotel also attracts more quiet people cause of the location (see further on).

The breakfast was very basic: orange juice, one croissant, one sandwich, some butter, some jam, a bit of cheese and rather real good coffee.More typically French in fact and I think you can't expect more for this amount of money. And they don't refuse if you ask an extra leaf of bread.

The location is near to 'Le gare du Nord' (less than 10 minutes walk and easy to find). Some people told me before it was maybe not that good, cause stations have their own problems (and other stereotypes). Living in Brussels myself, I can tell it can be really worse in the surroundings of the stations (e.g. hookers here, etc). You can freely walk around and I had a really safe feeling in the neigbourhood even at 12.00 o' clock at night. But I also have to admit at evenings I wouldn't walk further than metro Barbès - Rochechouart (métro de Paris), but maybe it was coincidence I saw some funny guys that night. And it's a big city anyway.

The location is splendid for visiting Paris and Europe. You're near to the metro and near to an international train station.

You can eat at really low prices in the surroundings of the hotel: microwave Chinese restaurants (like you find them a lot in Paris), Mc Donalds, ..., You can also find better things to eat at fare prices. A hint for your Paris trips: go and eat something in the sidelanes and not on big squares or avenues. Can really differ in price. (Even for a coffee with milk 2.30 euros <-> 5 euros). The location of the hotel is near to Montmartre (10 - 15 minutes walk). There you can find many restaurants and cafes. The location is not that well if you really won't to go out till about 5 o' clock in the morning. But certainly well if you're with two and just want to spend some nice time.

Would this hotel have been three or four stars, I would have given it really less than excellent (9 out of 10 in this case). But I think you can't really get much better deals. Don't expect too much luxury and lots of comfort and total service, because then you'll have to pay for it. Seems logical. And Paris is not cheap. But if you just want to have a pleasant stay at a fare price and you're not going for total night life: this is really a place to be. I've seen many parts of France and slept at a lot of places (mostly Chambres d'hôtes), but this one is a honest and certainly clean deal.

Room Tip: Try to have a floor on the higher level. There is an elevator.

Hotel very close to Gare du Nord station so getting to all the sights is really easy.

Most hotels I have been to that I have arrived at an hour before you meant to check in have your room ready - 13:30.
We had to wait 30min which is no problem when we got to our room and it was not clean. All we wanted to do was shower and then they could clean (we had an 11 hour flight).
On asking the cleaning lady for 2 fresh towels she got really angry at us and went to speak to the man at reception, eventually we got our towels with a look of disapproval.

We had to be at Orly at 5:30am and when asking a man at reception what is the best way to get to the airport at that time he said the metro (which only starts at 5:30), his response to the metro start time was its the only way. When asked about an alternative option he denied there was any. Later on that day we discovered airport shuttle flyers posted near the desk - another man at reception assisted us with this.

In conclusion, the hotel is ideal for a weekend get away in Paris, however I feel the hotels level of service to guests need to taken up a level.

Excellent for a weekend in Paris by Thalys. Gare du nord at 300m, several metro stations within walking distance, close to Monmatre and Sacré Coeur,but also a nice little hotel. Clean rooms, a bit outdated, but hey, look at what you pay. Nice little breakfast, and VERY nice and friendly staff! Rooms are a bit noisy, but after a day of heavy city-tripping, you'll sleep through it.
