“Good Location and Service, Small Rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The hotel is close to three Metro station and within a walking distance from the Opera, Gare du Nord, and more. The staff was friendly and efficient and breakfast was reasonable. The room was small with a low ceiling and we felt a little claustrophobic in there. We didn’t spend much time in the room so it wasn’t a big problem.

Room Tip: Avoid the upper floors (4+). The ceiling in the room is very low.

My husband and I stayed at the Ibis Grands Boulevards in May. The location is good. We actually were able to walk from the Gare du Nord, while lugging (or wheeling) heavy luggage with us. Probably took us 15 -20 min bc of the luggage, but saved ourselves the taxi fare. also the hotel is located just a short walk from the Le Peletier station and we were able to use the metro to get everywhere from there.
the staff was very friendly and efficient. They handled any questions we had politely and with a smile.
However the hotel itself was another story. the lobby area is very misconceiving, it's nice, bright, spacious. the rest of the hotel is not so much. we get off the elevator to go to our room and its like we're walking through Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory, you know the hallway that just keeps getting smaller and smaller. It was literally a winding, narrow hallway where the ceiling just getting lower and lower. we felt a little relief when we finally got to our room. but the room itself wasn't that great. We knew to expect a small room . But there was not enough space to even open our bags more than one at a time. compared to the room and the bathroom was actually a decent size.
Will be staying at another hotel next time in Paris, because we felt like the quality and size of room did not justify the price we paid.

next to metro stations, RER and very good service. Some rooms are a bit small, but that's alright. recently, the WiFi with acceptable speed is for free too. quite clean and close to so many resturants and cafes

Had a few nights here recently on a trip to Paris to see Bruce Springsteen at the Stade de France. We stayed at this hotel about 5 years ago. Its a really good location. Close to good metro stops (Cadet, Le Peletier) and really just 20/30 mins walk to the Seine and all its attractions. The room we had was quite small but clean and OK. It fronted onto the Rue Faubourg Montmartre which is the main street the hotel is located on. Its a busy bustling street. If you are a light sleeper and its a warm night (i.e you would like the windows open) then its probably best to get a room at the rear of the hotel if that is possible. Personally it was fine for me and my wife. Yes, there is the noise of deliveries and garbage trucks and a few cars and motorcycles going past but it is is in the middle of Paris so its hard to expect otherwise. My advice on booking. Try and book well in advance and get a good rate. We left it quite late and it was about 120€ a night. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around. The pizza place across the road is great. The Lebanese just down the road on the left is friendly and good food. Would I stay here again? Definitely.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask to be put in a room away from the main Rue Faubourg Montmarte street...

Must have had the smallest room available !! situated in the corner of the building . unwelcoming bedroom , no proper carpets and smelt ! though there was Wifi in the hotel ! we could only get it by sitting on a certain part of the bed and not moving lol !

It was situated in the old part of Paris which was handy for restaurants and bars, but apart from that we were disappointed with it being an Ibis the quality of the bedroom...

Room Tip: Corner rooms are very small

Reception staff great, always good to be well greeted and all questions answered well and friendly. Position of hotel great, lots of restaurants, bars, shops all on your door step. Good walking position to much of Paris or easy access to train service. We loved staying there and would recommend. The rooms are a bit quirky, building old, but so is this part of Paris. We were on 6th floor ceiling height in passage problem if your much more than 6 feet tall!. Our son stayed in another room in front of building and he found that quite noisy with traffic and bright light from sign. we were facing into court yard and that was quiet and no bright lights. highly recommend and would stay there again.

Room where clean but quite old, walls are paper thin (literally hear people having a shower or walking above you) and very small room. Bathroom was tiny! Centrally located but definitely not worth the price. Only one working lift which can be quite a wait in the morning. There are a couple of bars located close to the hotel so it can be quite noisy late at night.

Stayed at a few Ibis hotels but this was the worst by far. The only good thing was free wifi.

If you are planning to catch hop on and hop off bus then there is really no need to stay here, as most buses have numerous stops all around Paris. And this hotel is not near any of them closes stop is the Opera house.
