Hotel du Nord - Le Pari Velo
Ranked #854 of 1,809 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2012

My family stayed here in late June. The family room we had was up under the eaves, and we were pleasantly surprised to find it was actually two small spaces, one with two twins and one with a double bed, separated by curtains. It was good value for the price. I will say that the neighborhood was...urban...lots of tourists, traffic, a bar on the street below open til late. The street the hotel is on is also a little sketchy looking, but was safe enough. We're city people so that wasn't too bothersome but I can see it being a problem for people not used to a bustley city. There are two Metro stops within a short walk. It's right near the Place de la Republic, which is undergoing a huge renovation right now and should be very nice when they're done. Although we didn't use them, the hotel supplies bicycles for borrowing. It was a decent base for exploring Paris. My one issue was that breakfast was very French, bread, butter, jam, coffee and juice, and kind of expensive (7.5 euros per). We ended up eating at a little cafe on the corner which had English breakfast (more friendly for those of us on a Paleo diet) or getting yogurt from the Marche Franprix .

The hotel is very charming, the keepers and staff are very helpful and speak very good english. Noteworthy is that they have a really cute dog in the reception (but is harmless), and that definetly adds a bit of soul to the hotel. The breakfast is excellent and the location is superb. The rooms were also quite clean (as was the entire hotel).

I will be definetly be coming back to it on my next stay in Paris, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a simple and charming hotel.

Ever since I "discovered" the Hotel du Nord several years ago I have been staying there regularly whenever I am in Paris. The staff is helpful and friendly, the breakfasts are good, the location is convenient and in an interesting neighborhood, and the prices are very reasonable. There is free wi-fi.

We stayed in two different rooms for a total of four nights, as our trip started and ended in Paris. This is a great value hotel. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is interesting and has a lot of quirky charm. The location is excellent, within walking distance of lots of nice restaurants alongside the canal, and just steps to the nearest metro stop. We also took advantage of the free bicycle rental to cruise around Paris on a late Sunday afternoon, which was fantastic and highly recommend. The only reason we don't give them 5 stars is because the rooms are very simple and small, even compared to other European hotels.

Room Tip: Breakfast is excellent

A really lovely little hotel about 15 minutes walk from Gard du Nord. Close to nice bars and Canal St. Martin. I just wish we were staying in Paris longer so that we could have made us of their bikes.

The staff we met were friendly and helpful. The rooms are not big, but they are afterall, just a place to stay. Ours was furnished nicely with some good books available. The bathroom was spotless - I know this is to be expected in a hotel - but it was really clean! As other people have said, you'll need shampoo etc because there is only hand soap.

A good place to stay if you want somewhere cheap with easy access to central Paris

If you want a cheap deal and stay in the center of paris that's your Hotel. The location is really nice, close to Canal St.Martin, not touristic at all and it's well connected with the underground.
The Hotel itself and his retro atmosphere add an indubitable value to your stay.
All the furbishment come from flea markets and everything is put together with style.
Breakfast is served in the basement where you are surrounded, like in most part of the hotel, by old luggages, retro train seats, vintage hotel name plates and all sort of travel retated features.
Staff is nice and helpful and...moreover...you can have their bikes (aroud 15 available) for free!

Just remeber to bring shampoo or shower gel as the room bathroos are equipped just with soap!

I stayed here for five days with my teenage nephew, we both loved the hotel. It's on the rim of the tourist part of center, very well connected with metro and not even that far by foot. The hotel has everything it should have: it's clean, not very noisy, beds are fine and long enough (even if you're a bit taller) and the staff is kind and helpful. Breakfast is homemade. They rent free bikes, but you have to be a pretty good cyclist for riding through Paris (beware of traffic!). I've been to Paris several times and have to say this hotel nicely adds up to the french experience. Would (and did) recommend it to a friend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our hotel is a small one with 23 rooms that are warm, cozy and attractively decorated. When our guests arrive, we give them a key to the entrance door to the hotel as well as a room key. Right away everyone feels at home or rather, in a guesthouse. Our rooms are all different, each one has its own style: Oriental, pop, empire, Pompei, and so on.... We take particular care with the breakfast, served in the basement with its old-fashioned stone ceiling. Our breakfast consists in croissants, the traditional baguette and whole-grain bread, made not by an industrial bakery but by our local baker. The jams are homemade, prepared by us using quality fruits. All the products we use are chosen and furnished by local shops. Our guesthouse is located in a central district animated by its residents. It is a popular district for Parisians that is famous for its picnics along the Canal Saint-Martin, its bars, its restaurants and small local shops. All around you will find many Parisian brands, boutiques, bookstores, and food stores. We have selected them and tested them before recommending them. For getting around in Paris we have bicycles that are freely available during your stay. This is also part of our approach. Whatever the reason for your visit to Paris, we hope you will appreciate the atmosphere of our guesthouse. ... more   less
