It takes a really bad hotel for me to rate it a 2. On a budget, the area around Gare Du Nord is unfortunately one of your options. It's a safe, but truly ugly neighborhood which makes you wonder whether you are in Paris at all, but that is not the hotel's fault. What I found awful is that renovation is ongoing and in the room we received (206), the only thing we could smell was paint and polyurethane (floor finish) and sawdust. The room must have been very recently finished because the smell permeated whether or not we had the window open, since they are finishing the first floor still. We were greeted with an odd courtyard outside our room with construction garbage thrown about and plastic being the only thing separating us from the ongoing renovation (see photos). You can see sawdust lying around on the common floors, but I think the fumes were enough to make us sick. The room itself is renovated, but in a very odd way. The closet is plopped right in the middle of the room so it feels even smaller than it is. They could have put a shelf or something in the bathroom for toiletries. There is one towel hook, so we had to use the closet as a drying rack. Wires were sticking out of the wall. My partner and I just had to laugh off what a disaster this hotel is. I have stayed in a few Paris hotels before, so it is no shocker that the staff gives you a "Who cares?" attitude. We were amused when one of them locked the front door so he could take a nap in the middle of the day as we rang the bell repeatedly. In case it is not apparent, I would not recommend this hotel.
