I stayed just beside another hotel in the same pathway just opposite, called Hotel Bristol, on the first night as I found the room to be a single room with a sink and radiator and a view of the street from above. However, even as I stayed somewhere else I did take a good amount of help from the staff. One fine black dude (we did not exchange names) gave me the brochures and a good explanation of the metro system as well as what to see in Paris. I wanted to keep my backpack for the 3rd day in Paris at the locker below. Mind you its not really 24 hours 3 euros deal for the small locker (quite big actually), its actually only for 6 hours (check when you press "I am staying" to see what is your time limit left) after which the machine will ask for overtime payment of 1.80 euros depending on when you take it later in the day. That was a bit of a ripoff, but as you can see its business well done. The bag and the lockers are a very good facility, but just be aware they are also there to make money. I had a 'resurrection meal' for breakfast before heading out for the day. Its ,mainly fried eggs and beef steak, plus a drink. I would say its ok, cos I was feelin hungry in like 1 hour again. The wifi is good, no frills and fast. The photo machine can go wrong sometimes, just request for the manager for a refund. Very helpful staff and all young people around :) I would certainly log in next time around. The Gare Du Nord area is a little india of sorts, you get to find lots of banladeshis and srilankans. Its the busiest station in Europe. Good base place to start visiting all of Paris.
