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. Plenty of lovely bars and restaurants around, a bar across the canal that sells lovely ales if that's your thing and really close to shops... More

We spent one night at the hotel and couldn't have asked for a better service from the front desk staff. They were polite, friendly and always prepared to help and offer advice. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, albeit a little small if you have children with you and are using the sofa bed to sleep on. It was a... More

Pros: Location is nice, away from City crowd, Canal view from rooms, hotel reception staff speaks english. Cons: Breakfast was average, not upto the mark. No eggs in breakfast buffet, have to order . Away from city centre, no direct trains. Staff at restaurant does not speak english. Fazit: all in all not so bad!

Its really close to the Gare du Nord, important for family with kids. Staff were friendly and rooms were clean and comfortable , we had a top floor with. Balcony over looking the river, absolutely brilliant. 3 minutes walk from Riquet or Crimee, along the way there are restaurants, cafe, bars and supermarkets.

I love everything about this hotel. It is good location, the view from the room is really great. It is not center, but metro station is very close. There are a couple really nice restaurants around, you can walk by the Canal. Rooms are comfortable and in the hotel they were all very very kind.

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.
