at the heart of Paris
Very good location
The location was great, the room very clean and quiet.
Some trouble with the whole checking in process that caused more stress than it was worth but eventually sorted itself out.
Provided what can be expected for the price
The Hotel is 5 minutes walk from Gard Du Nord Station and 15 minutes walk into the centre - perfect if you are coming to Paris on Eurostar. The room was a very good size and the buffet breakfast pretty good for a 2** Hotel. The staff were helpful and the free wi-fi in the lobby area was useful.
We stayed in rooms 211 and 212 Oct 2010 - both bedroom floors were filthy! and the rooms were generally tatty. While staying at the hotel we were biten by fleas and we've carried them home! Bathrooms were immaculate, shame about the bedroom floors. If you are allocated either of these rooms do not stay in them! I will not stay at this hotel again and would not recommend the hotel to anyone. I have complained to hotel but have not had a reply to date.
Hotel staff were friendly (the majority) and willing to assist with questions of left luggage until departing on the Eurostar. The rooms were basic but clean and the beds comfortable with soap and toilet paper, clean towels in the bathroom. I have recommended this hotel to several people. The only drawback is the safety of the area at nights if alone. It is advisable to use a taxi at nights if alone.
If you have to have the window open over the street, it is very noisy as there is an all-night restaurant directly opposite and the voices/traffic from the street is loud.
Location , all we needed was there , quiet hotel and street ( most of the time ) The breakfast was sufficient .
The ensuite in our room was ready for a makeover , but clean ...the ensuite our friends had was much better.
The staff, the size of the room and the cleanliness of the bathroom
No air conditioning and the uncleanliness of the duvet.
good location, best breakfest
Location to Eurostar
Convenient location near Gare Est and Nord train stations. Relatively quiet street location. Lots of nearby restaurants and store. Easy access to Metro. Hotel is under renovation, so new bathrooms. Beds are simple foam matresses, which are actually very comfortable and much better than sagging springs.
This is a two star hotel, so set your expectations accordingly. When renovations are complete, it will be nicer, with new carpets etc. (still underway in mid Aug 2007). No AC so occassionally noisy with windows open in summer. No exhaust fans in bathroom. No wireless Internet, but some open networks nearby...
