I only stayed at theis hotel as everywhere else I normally stay was boked up. It was bordering on unaffordable for my company but the meeting I attended was important. A very well appointed hotel, the beds are very comfortable and the rooms clean although you can see the fabric of the hotel is getting a bit tired now in places.
Good facilities including bar restaurant and a gym. Internet was free (so it should be for the price!) Whilst the location is convenient, I was lucky to get an inside room as the main road outside can be very noisy. It is close to Gare du Nord so don't go wandering there on your own at night as it is close to the red light district, although the area around the hotels is quite safe.
I nearly had a heart attack when I went for breakfast as it was 27 Euros!!!! yes you read that correctly. My evening meal in a restaurant with beer and sweet was the same amount. If I had not been on a business trip I would have gone elsewhere. How can you charge that amount for a breakfast buffet? The Holiday Inn which is also IHG is half that price for the same fare!
I did not use the bar, restaurant (apart from breakfast) or the gym so cannot comment.
So, if you are willing to spend the money then this is a very good hotel but, there are chaeper alternatives that give you just as good a night's sleep and store your bags just as well.
P.S. What is going on with the TV remotes? They are the most user unfrinedly items I have ever used. To change channel you have to go back through a complicated menu.......Not channel surfing friendly at all.
