Smart Place Paris

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

This place was great - close to Gare du Nord, within walking distance of the Seine (30-45 mins depending on how fast you walk) and the sights, nice and clean. The bathroom itself was nice but the shower was tiny. Lots of really great bakeries and grocers around too and close to Montmartre so going out late at night is 10 min walk down the hill. Doesn't provide breakfast

It is just close to Gare Du Nord; 5 minutes walking distance to the hotel. It is cheap and clean room with attached bath. Staffs are friendly; they described the places of tourist attractions for a visit. They have free wi-fi service at lobby. It is great value what you paid for.

Very close to Gare du Nord, and a short walk to Sacre Coeur and Montmarte. The rooms are small but clean and nice, the staff was very lovely and gave us great info on places to eat and visit. The WiFi is limited to the lobby but the signal was good. Could hear some noise from other rooms, but really it IS a hostel. Nothing too loud though.

Found this place online when we were looking for somewhere cheap for the weekend. Wifi in reception, small communal kitchen and luggage storage for the day you check out.

Local to le Gare du Nord station (2mins walk), Boris bike stands just metres away, and plenty of bars and restaurants. Stumbled on a Brazilian place called Churrasco just up the road - great steak!

Smart Place also had an internal courtyard where we were able to lock our bikes up while we were there, great peace of mind knowing they were secure.

Great atmosphere, good location and very friendly and helpful staff, just a little problem with the thermostat seems the room is too warm for some reason but after spearking with the staff the problem was fixed when we came back. All in all a cozy hotel in great location

Excellent hostel. I'll be back. Clean, organised, close to train station and sites, helpful staff - what more would you want in a hostel! Rooms are very small but a minor inconvenience compared to the benefits.
