“Don't do it to yourself.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very pleasent English speaking receptionist but that is where the pleasantries begin and end. Here is a list of why you shouldn't stay here:
1. The creaky elevator which is coming close to collapse
2. The massive vomit stain on the carpet in the corridor outside the elevator of level 3.
3. The non English speaking receptionist and his rudeness as well as lack of knowledge regarding customer concerns
4. The permanent stench of sewerage in the bathroom which after a shower moves into the bedroom too.
5. The area!!! We thought we would walk up to sacre coeur to watch the sun set and had to turn back. We walked past three men urinating in the middle of a main road and one man even squatting while he took a dump!! The pavement is stained in urine trails and human feces and the smell is just as bad. This part of the city is just one big public urinal. Each time you walked past packs of locals hanging around which is seemingly the only way people move around here they stop and stare you down.
6. Next to a rail way so there is the constant sound of trains and there are two hospitals close by so you will never not hear a siren going off.

It's a really unsafe area and there isn't much to do or to eat around it so you do need to catch the metro into the inner part of paris and back at your own risk of walking back to the hotel at night.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

I already was TimHotel Paris Montparnasse, then i thought the TimHotel Gare du Nord may be good. Oh oh, I felt in error... The place is no so good because the noise opf the trains every hour, day or night. The region is ugly, but there are good restaurants, mini e supermarkets around the hotel. It is very good.
The wifi in the rooms not work. It is necessary go to reception to connection. Very, very warmth this room ... i ran far away every night.
The walls, curtains and carpets need a good maintenance... Very old.
When I took a shower, the water flown thru a role used as a knob to open and close the door box.
It's so bad.
I'm no recommend

If you are aiming for the big luxurious room with the hightec bathroom this is not the hotel for you, but if you are aiming for at place to crash after a day in Paris it is worth the price, but if you are XXL size you will not fit the shower. Breakfast is as so many places in large cites, you get feed. During our visit the temperature were 27-29°C and the hotel doesn't have AC so the room were pretty hot to stay in. The staff is friendly and there are Wifi that works OK. Only really annoying thing were that there were only 1 quilt many are used to 2. But that said we would stay there again.

Stayed for 6 nights. Wasn't looking for luxury to begin with as Paris is meant to be seen outside. Now I can't compare with other hotels in Paris, but I can compare with other hotels I have stayed in so I can definitely know what I am talking about if all you need is just a bed and breakfast.

Reached the hotel around 12pm on first day, they allowed me to keep my luggage while I take a quick look around. Came back around 1.30pm and saw other people checking in and getting their keys but apparently mine wasn't ready yet. Came back at 2pm and this time room was ready however the room that I had booked was a double-bed room and they only had twin-bed (side by side to look like a double bed) left. I had to say ok as after a long flight, I just wanted to rest. Advise to hotel: Please review your room booking system. I expect the room I booked, not the want you choose to give.

Room was clean. Toilets were not that small as other reviewers had said and were pretty okay for me. (Probably because in Singapore, most people live in a HDB Flat and the toilets are wickedly small). No bathtub sadly. Beds were quite okay, with additional pillows available in room and a really large blanket. 2 towels as well and some hand-soap. Please remember to bring your own body wash as none is provided.

Breakfast was not too bad, however, the same food is served daily with only 1 or 2 changes so you may get sick of it. (Didn't eat the last 2 days, I stayed) It usually comprises of a chocolate croissant, baguette (with cutting materials), additional type of bread, ham, cereal (Cornflakes & Koko Crunch). Tea/Coffee/Juice. Bread jam and butter as well.

Staff can speak English so non-french speakers are definitely felt welcome.

Hotel provides a transport from hotel to Airport which you can consider for the day you are leaving. Price starts at 18 Euro per person. The staff will book it for you, you just have to give them at least 24 hours notice and pickup time must be at least 3 hours before flight time.

All in all, if you're just looking for a place to sleep at night, this is good enough. If you're looking for quality, look for something else.

P.S. For those who are staying here and are taking the RER (B) into Paris from Airport, when you get down at Gare du Nord, follow the signs to the RER (E) Metro system at Gare du Nord. When you are in the RER (E) area. Take the exit at the top (there's both a lift and stairs). When you come out on top, turn left and you can see the hotel straight ahead. (Unless some vehicle is blocking of course.)

Room Tip: Stayed at Room 202. Was able to receive WiFi and didn't hear much train noises when window was c...

First the redeeming feature...the hotel is a short walk from the Gare du Nord station in Paris which takes to easily to all parts of Paris. But that walk can be a scary one as the hotel is situated in a pretty shady part of the town. The single room that I was originally checked into was really tiny and was forced to cough up 100 euros extra for a slightly bigger double room. The room might have been bigger but the bathroom was still tiny with hardly any room to maneuver in the shower. Then after reading the reviews had originally asked for a room looking up to the patio but it was just so depressing and gloomy. The lift wasn't working but the receptionist on the desk who checked us in was too rude to even admit it! The buffet breakfast spread and for the amount I eventually ended up paying I'll definitely expect a lot more.

Room Tip: The rooms in front of the hotel might be a bit noisy but they are far less gloomy!

This hotel gives you just what you need, a clean bed, a clean bathroom, a basic but nice breakfast. It is near to the train station so a good location. The staff were very helpful with all our silly tourist questions. There is just one problem, because it is so near to the station, the roads were a bit dirty and smelled terribly of urine, it was quite stomach turning, but this is not the hotels fault, the city needs to clean the streets.

We recenty booked a double room for a couple of nights (room 209), and we could not fault the room or the general stay! We only needed a place to sleep after exploring the city, and in our opinion this is an ideal hotel to do this - very affordable, polite and helpful staff, a clean room and en suite bathroom and a secure room to leave your luggage on your departure day (free of charge). The only very minor criticism is that the shower was a bit small, but this is something that can be overlooked and not much of a problem anyway. Yes, it is close to the train station but the room had double glazed windows and cancelled out much of the sound when closed properly.
We cannot comment on the quality of food as we did not have breakfast at the hotel, but the dining area looked extremely clean. There are many restaurants nearby.
Overall, the hotel is ideal for a weekend stay for a couple and I would definitely recommend it and will be staying here again next time we visit Paris!
