I have traveled around the world and have been to over a thousand hotels. As a frequent traveler and a frugal one you realize what hotel managers really care and the ones that don't. This hotel is not in the best neighborhood or in the center of Paris but it's safe, affordable and close to many metro stations. The staff...

The hotel is only a short walk from the metro Riquet. The friendly staff greeted us warmly and the room was very clean. We had a charming view of the Seine from our window, which we loved! Breakfast was very good with an assortment of croissants, baguettes, cheeses, salamis, scrambled eggs, sausages, cereals - and the coffee was wonderful. I...

A very good choice for your budget trip in paris. (75 Euro per night for a big single room). The hotel is located not far away from gare de l'est (with line 7 of metro, station Riquet, only 5 minutes ride)(Riquet metro station is 2 minutes walk from the hotel) on a line that crosses the city and you can...

Very good hotel for a short city trip right between Paris-Nord (trainstation) and the cultural zone around the "Philarmonie". Bed, room, breakfast, TV, ... everything as I expected. Free safe, on demand next to the reception. And last but not least: I especially liked the staff's profesionnality and friendliness. Good job!

This property is exceptional. Paul, who checked us in, was excellent, following up on our questions immediately. The manager was extremely pleasant and accommodating each time we encountered him. The building is immaculate, and it provides exceptional waterfront views of the beautiful Parisian canal. The complimentary buffet hot breakfast is superb. Paul and Pierre assisted us with our luggage upon...

The first impression was excellent... reception staff were brilliant to help with my very late arrival and sorting where I could go to eat... even at quite a late hour. The room was large, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Great shower also makes all the difference. For me this is an "above average" HIeX both for the chain and for...

This is definitely not a place for families, but the hotel overlooks a canal and provides a great view of the setting sun. The amenities are basic, and mostly for folks who are not going to stay in the room for any longer than a couple nights. The location itself is a little shady with post-bar crawl crowd just kinda...

Very clean room with great view of the canal..The breakfasts variety was not huge but you could find all the basic and the price/quality ratio was fair enough. Wifi free of charge. Staff very friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend it.

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.
