“Good value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Nice hotel, good location being close to the Gare du Nord. Recently refurbished/decorated rooms.
Good continental breakfast, with as much as you can eat. I would definitely stay here again. Lift a little bit too small but at least there is one! Staff friendly and polite and spoke good English.

If you're considering staying at Avalon it is probably for the prce. For that price, it is as good as you'd expect.

Pros
Breakfast is all you can eat and offers diversity
Cleaning staff are very good
Close to Gare du Nord
Very friendly staff
Rooms are large enough and beds are comfortable
Good internet service

Cons
Very dark rooms
Very noisy rooms, internal and external
Breakfast can get stale from day to day and good patisseries are cheap and abundant...
Apart from Gare du Nord, Avalon isn't that close to much else and it is a bit seedy (though this is more of a cleanliness thing than safety, I felt quite safe).

The hotel itself was pretty good, I had a single room, but it's pretty tiny for how much you're paying. The breakfast was decent & the staff were very helpful.
The major downfall is the area...it's great for the close proximity to the Gare du Nord station, but if you are female and traveling alone or with one other, the men in the district are very overwhelmingly forward and downright creepy. Other than that the hotel itself was pretty good.

This hotel is within walking distance from the Gare Du Nord train station, so it is very convenient as we had taken the train from the airport. We arrived with a sick child at 9.am and the front office was very firmed in stating that check in time is after 2pm. But she relented and seeing how sicj my child is and got the housekeeper to clean our room as a priority so we got into the room qucik smart and my sick child slept for 20 hours on his first day in Paris.

I thought that the ability to be flexible showed the hotel is run by human and not some robotic staff, which meant that I am very happy to recommend this hotel to everyone.

The room we took was a family room, with attached bathroom. It is tiny but very clean and the furnishing is all very modern and good standard. Bathroom is cleaned everyday and towels changed. We had a room facing the street so it is a bit noisy. The hotel must be closed to a hospital, because the wailing siren of an ambulances do interrupt my thoughts every so often. But I am always happy to hear it receeded when it got to the hospital and always praying that who ever was in that ambulance was OK. Interesting where an ambiance of a place takes you.

From Gare Du Nord, one can virtually go everywhere- we took the bus to Galleries Lafayette, Notre Dam etc, it is surrounded with shops and restaurants - even a halal restaurant, so it is very well located.
