It takes 40 minutes on foot then Metro to central Paris and proved difficult to find at first due to a complex road system. We learned later that buses 153 and 302 ran from Gare du Nord/Porte La Chapelle and stopped fairly close to the hotel although 302 only runs until about 8pm. The neighbourhood was multicultural but not particularly threatening, or maybe we were just oblivious to the dangers! We ate in central Paris on two nights, but as local cafes did not look appetising ate deli in our room on one night brought from the wonderful food shops in Le Marais. The room was large and well equipped for the price in Paris, but despite recent refurbishment was already dilapidated with a chewed up carpet and burned table.
Service was mediocre; the request for a taxi was not met on time despite the request for 5 additional euros booking fee. No soap was provided in the room despite two requests. The room was not made up until past 5 in the afternoon and only after a call to reception. The carpet was not vacuumed during our three day stay. The gratis massage provided on a |Thursday was a pleasant interlude.
In summary; you get what you pay for.
