Staff is friendly, location is very convenient, price is ok (Paris hotel are basically expensive), breakfast is sufficient, rooms are small, but neat. We liked the balcony. It really is a nice experience to observe Paris roofs and streets from the height of 6th floor. There is airport shuttle bus service available.

Main problem for us was the size of bed. It is small both width and length. We are quite tall: myself is 185 cm and my friend is 200 cm. So bed size is approximately 140 maybe 150 x190. Shower is very narrow as well.

Thank you for your comments. We are happy that you had a good stay with us and liked the location and services. Our hotel is traditionally built with French design and the bed sizes are quite small .However, we do have suite rooms with slightly larger space that cater for travellers with families and you may consider booking your stay in a suite room in future visits. We hope to see you again.

Our room is facing the courtyard hence quiet from any street noise. Room is clean but small and feels cramped with our luggage. Breakfast at the hotel is fine with the usual pastries, eggs etc. Location wise is great with the metro station very nearby. The hotel is ok for us since we were out most of the day. Internet connection is intermittent. The staff at reception are friendly and speaks excellent English. They arranged for us for a shuttle taxi from the the hotel to the CDG airport which cost 18 euros per person.

Holiday Villa is central - easy access to Metro, Eutro-train, Gallery Lafayette, shops and supermarkets. It's a small hotel and the elevator is even smaller which can carry one person with luggage! We had a corner room for the three of us. It's comfortable with enough space to move around. This room is at 4th floor, so it cuts out some noise but make sure curtains are drawn when you are changing because it's facing the block of apartment across the road. The staff is friendly and helpful and willing to help whenever requested. The restaurant is also small but food is good. Staying here makes it easy to move around in Paris. Gallery Lafayette, the biggest shopping gallery offering branded goods will delight big shoppers. It's just a walking distance away from the hotel. I enjoyed staying here but there is no lounge for guests at the reception. I would stay here again if I come to Paris.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. I didn't like it at all. Our room was tiny, the bed was more a 1,5 person bed than a double, the blanket was thin, so I was cold, people were all the time shouting in the corridor + there was some drunk guy messing around. The wifi was not working the first day. The receptionist was friendly, but that was the only positive thing for me.

The room is small but it fit us,small family with young under 5year old. Nil electric kettle provide in room only basic amenities. So near with metro station Cadet and easy to go around the city but ensure to hold Paris Visite pass and it make even more easier. About 2 metro station to Gare Du Nord train station.

They didn't answer my early question about traveling child with family, during arrival they ask me to upgrade to bigger room with extra bed for child but it will cost me 30euro per night for child but i just insist for the small room without extra bed and they allowed that.

This hotel was nice and central. The meto runs underneath the building so whole place shook every time a train went through. My daughter and I had a room with two single beds but the beds were really narrow. Rooms were very small, lift only able to take one person and suitcase at a time. Staff very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms facing street have little balconies who you can open up and let breeze in.

The Paris underground train line runs under the hotel, every three to five minutes the building vibrates like there is an Earth tremor as each train passes underneath. The first room they offered was next to the lift and had a shower in the broom cupboard and the room looked out over a very noisy street. The second room offered was better, a real but small bathroom and a view over a quite (except for the train tremor) courtyard.

Everything in the hotel was cheap and worn. The continental breakfast was basic and uninteresting. Unfortunately we were locked into a three nights stay through a travel consultant. Ther are far better hotels for this price so be aware and don't stay here.
