Had some probs finding the hotel - not helped by the reviews here and on booking.com which implied it was opposite the Gard du Nord or close to Disney!
The hotel is actually in the buildings of Gard du L'Est about a ten minute walk from Gare du Nord, not the Kyriad hotel you can see opposite Gare du Nord.
You have to look quite close to spot the Kyriad sign above a pair of double doors on the outside of the station building and looks nothing like a hotel entrance which made me quite nervous. You go in and climb about ten stairs to the lift which is not huge but not as small as some reviewers make out and go to the second floor for reception.
The reception staff are all friendly and speak English with differing degrees of fluency but this would not be a problem even if you cannot speak any French. Our twin bedded room was what it says on the tin- a twin bedded room. It was not overly large but perfectly adequate for our needs, clean and enough room for cases, desk and room around the beds. Bathroom was clean and even has a bath shower. It has good air con which was great in temps of 30degrees plus.
We didn't try the breakfast as you can get what you need from the station forecourt below for much less money.
Train noise was not a problem and the double glazing eliminates the road noise.
There are lots of restaurants around and it has wonderful access to bus and metro as you'd expect of a mainline station. You can join an open top tour of Paris very close by - it passes in front of the station.
If you're looking for a basic, clean hotel with good access to the metro and buses this is ideal - would stay here again!
