Staycity Aparthotels Gare de l'Est
Ranked #2 of 185 Speciality Lodging in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

We chose this hotel for family reasons. We have two children of junior school age and wanted a place where they were close to us and safe, but where we also had a bit of privacy (i.e. a partition between their room and ours, allowing us to have the lights on and talk while they were asleep). Finding interconnected rooms in a Paris hotel is difficult and expensive, so a holiday apartment seemed a good solution.

We paid 540 euros for three nights for a large apartment with effectively separate bedrooms and a reasonable size bathroom (with bath and shower), in mid-February (British school half-term). The room is basic, but clean and comfortable; soap, shampoo, towels, bed linen etc are all provided, and there is a kitchenette with crockery and a dining table. The bath and shower were fine. Everything works. There is also free wifi (although the arrangements for this are a bit fiddly, and we had to ask for a new log-in code every day - my only real criticism). There is TV in the room, but French language channels only. There is a 24 hour reception, with very helpful staff.

As for location it is not a particularly attractive part of Paris, but it is convenient. The Gare de l'Est metro station is just five minutes' walk away, and it is a 15 minute direct metro ride to Notre Dame and the centre of the city; 25 minutes or so to the Musee d'Orsay and the Eiffel Tower. there are also fast buses to the centre of the city. The Eurostar terminal at Gare du Nord is just 10 to 15 minutes' walk away, or a short bus ride. There are a few decent bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, especially around the Gare de l'Est itself.

Overall, for budget accommodation which is family friendly this is highly recommended.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at this property for three nights and booked online. We struggled to find it at first- it is located in a side road of a road opposite gare de l'est train station. The room was a studio room, and I put a request for a larger room ( just because of other reviews that were givin). We were allocated room 305, two floors up with a bay window making the feel of the room much larger. In all honesty, the room was basic, but had fully equipt kitchenette with microwave, fridge and hob ideal to make a quick and easy meal.
The bathroom was quite small with a shower. Again, basic, but fine for our purpose.

We paid in total £185 for the three nights which I think is pretty reasonable. Don't expect luxury, just expect a decent and purposeful room that is in a good location to transport connections for visiting paris.

What makes this stay city apartment good however, is the fantastic staff who work there. They are bi-lingual, friendly and very helpful. We checked in on Thursday 13th February gone 3pm and the gentleman on shift who checked us in was the height of professionalism ( I have stated the details above mainly for the hotels use, as I hope they can find who he was and thank him on our behalf!)

So yes, I would very much recommend this property for a convenient and cheap place to stay for a trip to paris!

Room Tip: We stayed in 305, it has a bay window. Although the view is non existent.

We stayed 2 nights in a 4 bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was exactly like the photos, really clean and brilliant facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful and so handy having a 24hour reception. Location was perfect. We walked from Gare de Nord train station which took less than 10 minutes and really easy to find. We travelled everywhere by metro and Gare de L'est metro station was less than 5 minutes away and so cheap and convenient. Would definitely recommend Staycity if you are on a budget and would like a modern and clean place to stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend in Paris and the location was great, central to most of what we wanted to do and in the middle of 3 very near metro stations! We had a studio apartment, which was clean and tidy, but on the cozy side - not that we minded. It did get very hot in the room though, so we left the 'balcony' door open when we were there.

The ensuite could use some work and we had a very loud group of girls down the hall from us the first night, but otherwise it was perfect for what we wanted - an affordable place to stay in Paris!

Dear Guest,

We thank you for taking the time and giving your feedback on TripAdvisor.

It is true we are in an ideal location and lucky to have multiple metro stops close by, as well as the hop on hop off bus tour route right beside us.

Although the studios and apartments are compact, they do offer greater space than most hotel rooms in Paris and have the added benefit of fully equipped kitchenettes. We are currently upgrading our bathrooms throughout the property and I hope that you will have the opportunity to come and stay with us again sometime in the near future, we would be delighted to welcome you again.

Thanks again for your positive comments.

Best Regards,

Sales Manager

We stayed 4 nights and this place was perfect for our needs, staff wonderful and very pleasant, and multi lingual so no problems there for anyone who stays. So close to all means of transport and tour/hop-on hop-off buses. Fully functional kitchen for the nights you don't want to go out, handy for our breakfasts and fridge needs ;) This place is clean, affordable and highly recommended and 24hr reception, it was a delight having someone greet you at the door on those long nights/early mornings out.

OK, Paris is a very expensive city to stay in - this place fits the bill as affordable. Positive attributes: large, windows that open. Small, fully functional mini kitchen, friendly staff. Easy walk to both Nord and Est train stations. Clean white bed linens.Lots of affordable bistro and cafe options close by.
Negative attributes: Very small bathroom, not much larger than an airplane bath (with a shower).
Towels were thread-bare. Doors in the room badly need to be painted. Limited housekeeping (you need to bring your garbage down yourself). Smell of smoke in the hallways with dirty carpeting.

Room Tip: Make sure the room does not have a joining room. You can hear everything in the next room through th...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor.

I am pleased to hear that you found our accommodation in Paris good value for money, and yes, the close distance to both major train stations is a real advantage for us. We do have some lovely cafes and bistros nearby as you mention, which is very convenient.

I am sorry to hear that you found the towels below standard, we will certainly check this and ensure they are removed from our stock.

In common with a lot of accommodation in Paris the bathrooms are indeed compact. We will soon be embarking upon a refurbishment programme in the bathrooms, which will improve the space.

The apartments are non-smoking. Sometimes this can be ignored unfortunately, however we do make sure that if brought to our attention we will ensure it is stopped. We do have a rotational schedule in place for cleaning carpets and painting and we thank you for your comments.

We hope that you will come visit us again and experience our new bathrooms. We would truly welcome another opportunity to have you as our guest.

Sincerely,

Sales Manager
