A group of 6 of us stayed here for a short weekend break, wanting to see the sights in Paris. The hotel is around a 20 minute walk from Gare Du Nord, however id recommend taking a Taxi straight to the location. This hotel is an exactly what it says on the tin type of hotel. They tell you it's basic, and basic is exactly what you get. If you're expecting champagne and truffles on arrival then you may be slightly disappointed.
Staff (man) was friendly, good English, more than happy to help with any problems. It's a 24hr reception, so he sleeps and takes (Pat) Naps in there too. No lift, just one spiral stair case, so this would be a complete no go, if travelling with pushchairs or if unable to use the stairs.
Room was a fairly large double room, decent bed, simple bathroom and TV. No fridge, safe box, Air Con, and if your window closes, lucky you!
For me, I don't have too many issues with the hotel, its a bed for a night, and that's it. We were out for most of the time in the centre of Paris, and it is a beautiful city.
If in a group and want a crash pad then go for it. Safe to say if I was by myself, I don't think I would be writing this review!
All in all it was a great weekend, don't hold back from visiting Paris, and the hotel is .. unique.
