I stayed for 3 nights. I was expecting less quality and/or convenience due to the hotel price, but surprisingly I found a very good hotel with central location, very near to Gare Du Nord (the main transportation hub) with cooperative staff. The rooms space were excellent (I stayed in 2 different rooms), so as the bathrooms. We needed help several... More

This hotel is very well situated near Gare du Nord, so it's perfect for travelling around the city. The bedroom and attached ensuite we had (4 person room) were fine. This is where the positive points end however. The main problem I had with this place was the terrible welcome we received. When we arrived we were told that the... More

After reading the reviews on this hotel I was a bit apprehensive to check in - however I'm glad in took the chance as this hotel was beautiful! I think it has just been done up as the room furnishings were clearly brand new. Very modern, clean, Central hotel! Will definitely book this hotel again.

Grand (???) Hotel Magenta can be considered an option only if you don't find something better. A very, very basic Hotel, next to Gare du Nord, could be worthwhile if you are leaving from that train station very early in the morning.

Friends and I stayed here because we were catching the train from "Gare du Nord" at 6am and it was a 2 minute walk from the hotel. I would only recommend staying here for 1 night only, the beds are not to bad, bathroom had hot water and the toilet flushed, honestly I didn't think any of these would be... More

We chose this location because it was affordable for our group of six as well as how central it was located. When we got there, the staff were kind enough to keep our luggages as we went site seeing, because the rooms weren't ready. However, when we got to the rooms, it was a disaster. The bathroom were filthy, there... More

We were in Paris mid July 2014. It was hot a muggy. Hence, one star removed for this hotel because there was no fan. Other than that, it was adequate, it served its purpose. The bathroom had been renovated and had new fixtures. The floor was vinyl. I personally like this. If you are a light sleeper, keep in mind... More

Dirty, loud, outdated. If your looking to stay here, skip it. The place looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in years. The blankets and sheets were stained and dirty. No AC and there must have been 2 plugs in the room - which one of the plugs started a fire and fried our charger. The wifi is extra charge. You... More
