Editorial review:

This is a lively hotel strategically located near Gare du Nord. It is a fun place to be and since it is close the Gare du Nord train station, if your next place to visit is north of Paris you are already well poised to move in that direction to your next destination. All of the 34 rooms in this lovely hotel are larger than average and quite comfortable. The single rooms don’t have showers but use of the communal shower is included in the room rate.

Verified Reviews:

  • Room was very basic - Sheets clean - No tea and coffee facilities in room
  • Close to city attractions - Walls were like paper - No fan or air con
  • Rooms are small - Bathrooms are clean - Breakfast was ok
  • Excellent staff - Close to gare du nord - Rooms are always clean
  • Heart of the city - Metro station right next door - Poor infrastructure

    This hotel is close to Gare du Nord & Gare d' eLest (train stations).

    This is my first stay in Paris, but the price seemed high for how run down things were. The stains on the bed comforters made everything else seem dirty, however the sheets underneath did looked clean. There was supposed to be free Wi-Fi, but it was password protected and there were no instruction on how to connect. Dialling zero did not get an attendant, and I did not feel like walking back down or up 6 flights of stairs to ask the attendant. Over all I was disappointed, but that is compared to similarly priced hotels in the U.S.

    Very near Gare du nord

    It s not clean and I feel unsecure.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The staff were helpful and the location was very convenient to Gare du Nord.

    The room was a bit tired as were the stairs, but not unreasonably so given it's a two star hotel, close to a major railway station in an old building. The lift was very 'petite' as Parisian lifts can be.

  • Couple
    4.2

    Would be adequate for 1960s Morocco - small room, no bathroom door, tiny TV high up on the wall, 1st floor on a busy street, window not closing very well

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    only good thing about that hotel is location

    very untidy and stinky rooms, dirty bad covers.. extreemly small room

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    Good location, near metro but dirty rooms, really noisy and uncomfortable. During the night, do not walk alone around the area of this hotel, because it seems dangerous!

    Cleanliness, comfort and do something about the noise.

  • Single

    rooms at the road side (rue la Fayette) are quite noisy because of the traffic

  • Single

    close proximity to the train station 'Gare du Nord'

    not a thoughtful taken care of things ;a sloppy impression. It misses the extra touch of caring.

  • Family with children

    The rooms were comfortably warm for December. Breakfast is croissant and rolls but you can buy pains au chocolat from nearby bakery and bring them into the breakfast area.

    The rooms had a strong musty smell and the carpet was quite old. The bathroom door handle was broken so we couldn't shut it completely and when we did someone had to be on the other side to give it a good shove; in a triple room with young teenagers a bit of privacy is necessary. We never felt it was a room for relaxing in. We booked our taxi for the airport at the hotel desk. We were charged 95 Euros which worked our 40 for the hotel, upfront and 55 for the driver. Never again as we found out that it was a shuttle service and the driver made a stop without even a word of explanation.

  • Family with children

    It's very near the metro, very convenient. Cheap hotel in terms of price, but service is very good. I wouldn't say it has good value for money but hotels in Paris are really expensive and this has one of the cheapest rates we saw. Rooms have sufficient space, hot waters always available, staff cleans up room everyday and replaces the toiletries everyday. Wi-fi is always available, but sometimes the connection is slow.

    The neighborhood is not that safe -- on our first night we witnessed someone get arrested right on rue La Fayette (the street of the hotel), the community around the area is mostly immigrants and at night it can be really noisy. The elevator is so tiny, maybe not even 2 m area. There was just one electrical socket in our room--and it's connected to the TV plug! Good thing we brought extension cords. Some chipped tiles in the bathroom, peeling paint on the walls -- small maintenance things the hotel could definitely improve on. The restaurant in the hotel has expensive prices; it's better to eat outside.
