“Adequate and well located”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Even for ibis standards this is an average hotel. The main issues are the very basic rooms, the awkwardly shaped bathroom (depending on which room you get, there might not be any leg room when you are using the toilet), the small TVs, no kettles in the rooms and not user -friendly wifi.
The rooms are clean but the area outside the entrance of the hotel is used as a smoking area (not good first impression) and there is rubbish (including used condoms) on the top of the canopy over the entrance (obviously thrown out from the windows).
There are quite a few positives as well though. This is amongst the cheapest chain budget hotels in this part of Paris. The location is very convenient, only a 5' walk from a choice of three metro stations (Louis Blanc, Jaures, Colonel Fabien) with excellent connection to the network and easy access to Gare du Nord.
Even better is the access to the St Martin canal, literally around the corner, which is ideal for an afternoon/evening stroll and for dining with its wonderful bistros and restaurants. We had two of our five meals in Paris in this area!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms x04 (e.g. 204, 304 etc) as the toilet is very poorly designed with no legroom.

Stayed here because of its proximity to a music festival we were attending. It's not in a particularly touristy part of Paris, but very accessible to such areas via the metro. You can be at the Arch de Triomphe in about 15 minutes once on the metro. The hotel itself is not terrible but definitely not nice. Our room was so tight that the door did not open all the way to get in. I found sitting on the toilet challenging given how close the wall in front of it is to the throne itself. If you have loud neighbors, you will definitely hear them. Finally, the fire alarm went off two days in a row around 8 AM in the morning, which I almost think was a tactic to wake you up to pay for the breakfast buffet (which we did, and was pretty decent). But it is clean and very inexpensive, so you get what you pay for. But don't expect anything romantic or cool, it's just a place to lay your head. If it's not cheaper than places you consider to be nice, go for that other place. This place is worth staying in when you are looking for maximum economy.

There was no plug in the bathroom and the toilet seat was square but other than that, this is a good hotel right on the canal and close to gare du nord and gare de l'est. They had some theft problems in the past but the friendly receptionist informed me that the recently installed key card system in the elevator and in the stairwell has solved that problem. It is not luxury and the room was small but if you don't want to pay top dollar in Paris, that is what you're going to get.

This place is walking distance from Gard Du Nord train station, and checking in was incredibly fast, less than one minute, by a friendly receptionist. The room size is ok, the room very clean and smart with modern fittings which were all working.

This is a good hotel if you are in Paris for a work trip or basic holiday, but not if you want something special or romantic.

The staff were all friendly and efficient. The area is very quiet, but not dead. Across the canal are cafes and shops, and a bit down the road by the canal is a supermarket.

For lunch/daytime eating very strongly recommend Le Cafe Prud'H at 208 Rue du fauberg, less than ten mins away. A very friendly place with wonderful reasonably priced food. They don't do hot meals in the evening.

Didn't have breakfast there as lots of cheap cafes etc nearby.

Only three small downsides. The bathroom is small (shower only) and the toilet was jammed sideways into an alcove meaning you have to use it sideways! See picture. Very odd design.

Also, the doors have an automatic closing and really thump into door frames when they close, which is very noisy late at night. Another thing, small really, but it sounded like the extraction fan in the bathroom came on every few hours overnight, loud enough to wake me up as I am a light sleeper.

All that said, if I had another work trip with meetings nearby wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It was a lot nicer than several other places I stayed at in Paris over the years,
