“One star hotel in a very good place in Paris”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I was looking for a hotel to be near the RER trains and decided to look for a hotel near the Gade du Nord. This hotel kis a 1 star hotel and an adventure started between us. I have been staying there a lot of times, from time to time trying another hotel in the same area and always returning there. The rooms are rooomy, but everything is cheap and not so well organised. The lights in the rooms are very sparce, and had difficulty reading anything or wprse - make up in the morningo Tried, as I
said, other hotels, but all were more expensive and not at all of the same level. Breakfast is very good and for 6Euros is well worth it.

Room Tip: Rooms 23, 43 were nice

The hotel was a disappointment. I know it is August in Paris but it was more expensive than it should have been for the quality of the hotel. Room was small and dirty - and very noisy even with an inside courtyard window. You can do better in the area. Gare du Nord is what it is. I never feel unsafe there but you have to be on the lookout all the time and I would avoid being out too late. Stayed in the area before and got a better deal - keep looking.

Good location as it is near the metro and train station. Room size is just enough for us. There's space to place our luggages and stuff. They clean the room regularly and change our towels everyday. I requested a room in the interior courtyard so it's not noisy. The staff are friendly and helpful. They even assisted to print our boarding passes for our next destination.

Stayed in Hotel Cambrai for 6 nights. It was relatively cheap when compared with other hotels so we ended up choosing this one. The location seemed perfect! It's just 2 minutes away from Gare du Nord, where several metro lines meet. The problem is that it is not a very well populated area. We never got any trouble, even at night! But we still speed up our pace to get to the hotel. Other than that, the location is great! There are also many buses right in front of the hotel. A nice walk away from the Sacre Coeur too! And there's a little Monop' market just on the other side of the street that was very helpful everyday!
The room was not gigantic but it was a good room, a double one, with a bathroom that was a good surprise. A big bathtub instead of a shower! Although there wasn't a shower courtain, it was still a good surprise! The room was clean and confortable.
The people were always nice, including the cleaning lady, all smiles and "bonjour's". But the guys at the reception wouldn't loose anything with a little more of english knowledge. We got along fine, but still...

The only negative thing I have to say is that we suspect there was a little mouse in the bathroom. We didn't actually see it but we saw a shadow and there was a hole in the wall beneath the sink. So yeah, that sort of got us worried. But we ended up stuffing a towel under the bathroom door and went on sleeping, stopped caring about it.

A 5 min walk from Gare du Nord, this is a great budget hotel option for Paris. Very simple and rooms pretty small, but it was big enough, was clean and even had a hair dryer! Location and price would probably bring me back.

When checking in, the hotel wanted us to stay one night in one room and the other 3 nights in another. This had been booked 6 months previous. Room was very small, but clean. Big negative was you could hear doors closing and convetsations on the floor above and below and in every room on your floor. There was some teenagers being teenages til after 3am, the noise was unbelievable but the hotel staff didnt want to know.

I spent 3 nights at Hotel Cambrai . Pros :1- The hotel is within a short walking distance from Gare du Nord . 2- It is reasonably priced . 3- Cordial staff . 4- Reasonably clean . Cons : 1- Hard mattress . 2- Squeaky floors . 3- Smoke infested . 4- Poor quality breakfast .5- Shower head with no holder , no soap holder . 6- Street traffic noise can be unbearable . This is my 4th. trip to Paris in as many years . I have always made price and proximity to the train station a priority . From now on , I would rather pay a few extra Euros at a DECENT hotel instead preferably close to the center !!
