It is in a great location - easy access to the Metro and just a few stops from downtown. There are local shops and restaurants frequented by those who live in the neighborhood so you get a feel for the city away from the big attractions. The hotel is bright and clean and modern. The included breakfast is extensive and... More

It is one of the good Holiday Inn Express that I ever stayed. The quality of the breakfast buffet there is compatible with a 4-star hotel. Initially I have concerns about the security issues posted here about this hotel. But I found that they have a security guard at night, they ask for guest room numbers at the breakfast area,...

I selected this hotel as it seems to be the only HIEX in Paris, not sure why. Location may seem far at first look, but it was extremely convenient from start to end. Train station for Eurostar service was 2 metro stations away and line 7 connects directly with Louvre without any changes. Other attractions were only a metro line... More

Requested and received a room with a canal view. Very comfortable bed and good bedroom and bathroom amenities. Quiet. Unpredictable and slow wifi which was so bad I would not recommend this hotel to other travellers if they need reliable or fast wifi. 10 minute walk to Zenith along the canal.

This hotel is in the northern part of Paris and only a 5 minutes' drive away from Porte de la Chapelle. It is beautifully situated near Canal de la Villette in a quiet neighbourhood.

Great new property with easy access to Central Paris. Extremely helpful and smiling staff. (One of the biggest positives for this place.) The hotel is situated on the banks of a canal. We got a lovely clean room with a great view of the canal and crossing bridge. Part of the restaurant on the ground floor is on a deck... More

Staying in La Villette

Neighborhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the center.
