The hotel is situated over the canal which provides for a nice view and a you can walk by the canal which gets lively in the evenings. Very limited options in the breakfast for vegetarians. Its situated away from tourist places, but you can walk to the nearby subway station and get wherever you want to.

Great Service, room, and value close the Metro. You will enjoy canal and park view ( La villete). A short ride to Central station ( 5 mins) and Opera (10 mins). The hotel has great packages and value for your money including European Breakfast.

We stayed here for three nights with our four-month old daughter. The hotel was right next to the canal and was beautiful to walk around. The room was clean and not as small as we were expecting it to be. There are a bunch of cute eateries/bakeries near by and the metro is about a 5 minute walk. Breakfast was... More

It would have been five stars for this little jewel, if it wasn't for the broken down coffee machine and the overall poor breakfast. Oh, the WiFi service could use some attention too. Other than that, it was exactly what I expected. Maybe even more!

If you are looking for a very economical hotel just to crash the night and have a light breakfast, you may want to consider this hotel. A few minutes walk to the metro while you have a refreshing walk besides the canal.

This hotel has a superb location, just outside of the busy city centre so you can soak up some real Parisian life. It's right on the canal so you can watch the boats going by.

Staying in La Villette

Neighborhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the center.
