Me and my family stayed at the Liege Strasbourg for a long weekend before our main holiday. The hotel is ideally situated close to the Gare du Nord and Gare su L'est train stations. The area is best described as ethnic, yes there are large groups of people who hang around, particularly on a Saturday night, but we never felt threatened by them.
The hotel itself is 2* nothing more, nothing less. We stayed in the quad room, the room was a decent enough size for all 5 of us, clean and with 2 large french doors leading onto small balconies, the only negative is the weekend we stayed, Paris hit a record 42c!!!! The hotel isn't designed to cope with these temperatures, no ceiling fans, aircon or air for that matter made the nights unbearable, but we coped. The hotel is going through an update but it is progressing at a typically euro' rate, a bit whenever, where ever.
The breakfast room, unfortunately was closed for referb' which meant a treck down some ancient stone steps into what felt like a dungeon! Incredibly small room, packed with sweaty bodies, no windows, no fans, if it was 42c outside, you can imagine what it was like down there.
The area leaves little to the imagination but literally 5 mins walk away there are resturants to suit every taste and budget, also there is a bike hire bay to the back of the hotel, which is fantastic at night, the bikes are lined up for you to hire for as long as you want.
The hotel also benefits from being on a great commuter route, be it the metro (which we didn't use because I don't like taking the kids down there) or buses (these are the best way to see Paris) Do your homework before you arrive, if arriving like we did, by plane, purchase a Paris Visite Pass from the airport. This gets you on all the trains, buses, metro and more. By purchasing one that covers zone 1-5 it gets you to Disneyland aswell. Just watch the gates as you put the card in, sometimes it eats the ticket and the staff aren't willing to help.
Would we go back to this hotel, probably yes. But not in peak summer time. The Liege Strasbourg is a great, typically Parisian, little hotel. You get what you pay for.
