We know and love the Hi Hotel in Nice... Of course the place could not be as large since we are in Paris but still the room was minuscule for the luggage and we had to take off our shoes to walk to the other side of the room since we had to walk on the bed. The concept is... More

Three of us (female friends) booked this not knowing what to expect. It is so cute! A really lovely place in a lively area, which is great value for money for location. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

Hotel location is great, close to the metro, lots of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants nearby and not an expensive neighbourhood. The whole experience is automated and efficient. Not a traditional style hotel and is in itself an experience, that we found amusing. The rooms are compact and open plan but there is enough room for washing, dressing and sleeping. I... More

Too small in every regard. I felt clasteophobic in every part of the hotel. Room is so tiny it's almost funny. Had to walk across the bed to get to the bathroom, which is no more than a shower stall smacked in the corner of this tinny room. Basically, a human doesn't fit. And I'm not a 200 pound American!

I read some negative reviews about this hotel which had me thinking whether I had made the right choice by choosing to stay here. Yes I did choose well. It's a great place to base yourself for a short break in Paris, the location is ideal, with a Metro stop a short walk away, and lots of interesting cafes and... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights. This is the worst place I have stayed in , in whole life. Bed is 5' away from toilet and shower. You can not use the sink if you open shower or toilet door. Bed is on the floor and it is very noisy. And in the elevator only one person with... More

If you want a hotel with a standard design this isn't the place for you! It's quirkily designed for sure as the pictures here demonstrate Now the upside! - Rooms have an MP3 player dock - The free WIFI works like a dream - Breakfast is more than decent - The staff are very kind and helpful - The neighbourhood...

Good location, 5 min from the metro and from a bus that takes you straight to the Louvre and another to Gare du Nord. Lively street with plenty of cafes and bars, most open until 1 am. The hotel staff is helpful and the room very clean. It is indeed a bit cramped but if you spend all day outside... More

On positive side, fair to say that I had an acceptable stay. It's relatively cheap and booking with 6 hours notice did what I needed to be in town. The design is interesting. Highly stylised. Great colours and interesting approach to room design. Breakfast is basic but satisfying and a nice room to eat in. Wouldn't go back but it... More

I booked it by Internet without checking the details. The room is a cabin. Not bad IF the architect had given some thoughts about the guests, not only a quirky design. No bed. Mattress on the floor. The room could have fitted a bed if they wanted to. The furniture is in wrong places. Which makes it uncomfortable and cramped.... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
