The pictures on the site are not representative of the hotel. The carpets are heavily stained, along with the bed covers and the whole hotel needs a massive input of TLC. very disappointed, will not recommended or stay again.

My sister and her husband recently had a midweek break of 3 nights in Paris with their two children (3 and 9 yo). After they had booked the hotel, they read some of the reviews and were really worried...to the extent that they were going to look elsewhere. However, common sense prevailed and they decided we'd just go out and... More

Very close to Gare du Nord station and several reasonable Brasseries. Friendly staff with some English. Wifi works. On the down side, expensive €150per night, my bathroom had hairs in the shower and sink that were there for the three nights I stayed in Paris. Small rooms, in desperate need of a facelift.

The pictures on their website must be 30 years old, and the hotel has not been updated since. It was dirty, hot, and noisy. No air conditioning and the window opened into an air shaft looking into other apartments. Not worth half of what they charge. A total disappointment.

We didn't actually stay there, however we were suddenly arriving in Paris without a cell phone and couldnt find a pay phone. We happened upon this hotel to inquire as to where we could find a pay phone. The gentleman at the front desk was very kind and helped us immensely. He actually called the numbers from the front desk... More

We booked this hotel as a package deal through Eurostar and only read the reviews after booking. Expecting the worse we discovered that all the negative reviews in no way reflected our experience. We had four nights of excellent sleep in very comfortable beds. The room was basic but clean and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful in... More

The room was small and stuffy, I did not sleep all night because it was so hot, even with the window open it was still stuffy (I came back to the UK with a cold) The walls are extremely thin I could hear a couple in the next room from 2am-6am constantly, with the headboard hitting against the wall!

Not exactly the nicest place I have ever stayed but it did the job. A place to sleep and a shower. Was up early to catch a flight back to the airport which was 50 euro in a taxi and took approximately 30 minutes at 5am.
