“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights 2 weeks ago. We read the previous reviews so were unsure of what to expect. In our opinion....what a Gem! The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Gare du Nord. The staff are friendly and efficient, if you arrive early or need to leave late they will happily hold onto your luggage for you. You are provided with a map of Paris on check in. Situated just a two minute walk from Bonne Nouvelle metro station with the metro simple to use and an easy way to get around Paris. However if you want to walk everywhere it is perfectly located too. The room had tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge, a safe, free wifi( you pick up the code on a daily basis from reception), sat tv, hairdryer, iron, bath and shower, king size bed. To be honest If you want somewhere to stay to spend all your time in with 5 star service and facilities then this is not the place, why bother. However If you want somewhere to rest your weary body after sampling the incredible delights of this city then this is just perfect. It is clean, the breakfast is an all you can eat buffet, it is friendy and had everything we needed. We will stay here on our next visit and will reccommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: As my partner is over 6'5 we upgraded when we booked to an executive room as it gives you a king...

This hotel is in an interesting location: lively and central (but not near the opera!) The room we had was quite spacious with a bathroom that was very clean and recently refurbished. We had use of a safe free of charge, and there was a fridge in the wardrobe with a strange request 'not to put any of your own food in it for hygiene reasons'. We were puzzled as to why it was there as it was not a minibar and we used it anyway.
The breakfast was very good and served in a beautiful dining room. The hotel has a small bar but there was nobody else in it when we went down for an evening drink. There was no mini-gym (signposted in the hotel) and a strange basement computer room where I think you could access the internet using a credit card.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and the general atmosphere was very good. The only negative point was the fact that we could hear our next-door neighbours as if they were in the room with us. I think connecting rooms are particularly affected, though we could hear people on both sides. For this reason, I have only given the hotel three stars.

Room Tip: You could ask if there are any rooms with views of the street. We looked out on other windows and a...

Although the room itself was in need of decoration, it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is wonderful. It has character and charm. The staff are very friendly and extremely efficient. Everyone is very willing to help and advise the best way to get around.

The hotel is situated a very short walk away from the extremely efficient metro system which will take you into the heart of Paris in a very short time. Other sightseeing attractions such as Montmartre are even closer. The Gard Du Nord is very close, we chose to use a short taxi journey to get to the hotel.

I would have no hesitation to return to the hotel.

We did not eat in the hotel as there are so many restaurants, bars and cafe's nearby.

Room Tip: I understand the hotel is to undergo some decoration. It maybe worth asking if the room is refurbish...

I wasn't sure what to make of this hotel after reading some of the reviews but I was very impressed, you couldn't ask for a better location - I walked to and from Gare du Nord which was about 15 minutes away, it's almost central to most of Paris in walking distance to Opera, Montmartre and The Louvre, close to metro stations and bars and restaurants.
The entrance and the lobby itself looks newly decorated but for a four star hotel I wouldn't say the same about the rooms, they look dated and tired and could do with a good refurbishment and didn't have amenities such as tea and coffee which might be expected from a four start hotel. On the other hand it was clean, the bed was comfy, staff were friendly, the wifi was free and didn't have any problems with connection on the 6th floor, they have an in room safe and a mini fridge (although there is a notice saying anything left in there that isn't hotel property will be removed). If you're looking for a room to use as a crash pad in order to explore Paris this hotel is perfect for price and location.

Was disappointed with some of the reviews that people had written on here as the hotel is in an excellent location and provides clean, comfortable rooms that are very reasonable (considering that this is Paris)! You get free WiFi and a self service hot and cold breakfast is included to help set you up for the day.
We stayed in room 514 which is located to the back of the hotel where we found it quiet. Yes the hotel could do with freshening up a little with a lick of paint, but it was clean and had a real Parisian style to it which we really liked. At the end of the day you are there to enjoy the sights (and shops) of Paris and not to spend it all day in your hotel room. We would stay there again and hope to do so in the future. One tip however when making your way back to either the airport or train station is to NOT book a taxi at the hotel reception but to walk for two minutes to the taxi rank outside McDonalds opposite Rex Cinema as the Taxi will only cost €8.00 (to Gaud de Nord) If you let the hotel book you one then it will cost more as the taxi meter is activated from whether they are travelling from to get the hotel.

Had stayed there some 10 years ago and this hotel was already VERY shabby. Having said that, the location is excellent with the metro close by and a good breakfast. knowing the hotel's condition,we chose an executive room and got a room at the back - very quiet. They are starting refurbishment soon. We will certainly try the place again after it has been renewed. Reception was VERY understaffed with just one person on a Saturday morning at check-out time ! The poor man was dealing with the telephone, guests and other visitors (taxi etc) not fair on him and on the clients. Hotel has an arrangement with the nearby REX (very nice)car park where you will pay EUR 23 instead of 42 for a 24 hour stay. Don't forget to ask your voucher at reception.

Room Tip: Spend a little bit more and take a superior room with a 2meter bed. Ask for room at the back.
