Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were for a week in Paris during Christmas. The best thing about this hotel is its' location - The Metro stop is like at the door step, which is a big relief particularly for families with young children. The metro line 7 goes from here, which takes you directly to city center (Louvre museum). Another big station is 5-7 minutes walk away, called "Gare du Nord" - there are further Metro lines and RER (long distance trains) from here. Near "Gare du Nord" one can find a lots of restaurants - from cheaper eatouts like MacD, Subway to authentic French cuisines.
Some well rated restaurants by tripadvisor like Figo and Abri are nearby. If you are a vegetarian (like me), a very good veggie joint called V-G was 2-3 min walk away on Rue de Lafayette. Furthermore, you can take a random walk towards North/North-west in the direction of Monmatre hill to find more options.
Supermarket and Bakery was also very nearby.
The hotel as such was good, room was of decent size by Parisian standard. Better check the room area before booking the room. Also note that, the room charges vary as much as by around 50% from one day to other.
The staff was very helpful, the hotel is new and so the staff was slightly novice. But they were throughout sincere in helping us.
In the room they had a water kettle with tea/coffee/sugar sachets, that was really great, to have first tea/coffee of morning at hand.

Room Tip: Better check the room area before booking the room. Also note that, the room charges vary as much as...

Everything about this hotel was very high quality: helpful staff, perfectly clean, excellent fabric of the bed linens and bath towels, comfortable bed, good location (It is close to Gare du Nord station and to the subway station).
I will definitely stay again and strongly recommend it!

Everything about this hotel was fantastic. We were greeted by Damien on reception when we arrived at 11.30. Despite being very early for check in, our room was ready and we were immediately upgraded - a great way to start our trip. The room itself was very modern with a cosy, comfortable and large double bed. Everything was very well kept and clean.
We visited Paris for 5 days and found that the hotel was in the perfect location for us. Less than a minute's walk to the Metro station Poissonnière and at €1.70 per single ticket it is easily the cheapest way to get around. There is a supermarket located near to the hotel stocking everything you may need and a nearby pharmacy.
We will definitely be returning to stay again!

Dear Jessica,

I am very pleased to see your lovely message.

We are always doing our best to provide rooms as soon as possible. Sometimes our guests come from very far and we understand they are really tired. The fact that you enjoy our service make us very proud.

The location where we are is perfect for people who want to reach each point of Paris fastly. Prices for public transportation are interesting, especially if you buy the daily passes.

We hope we will see you again pretty soon.

If you are going to Paris and wish to sleep without all the noise from the streets. Stay in this hotel in one of the rooms in the courtyard and you will explore silence everuy minute. Our room had a bathroom one stair down in the cellar and it was a little bit cold the day when it was -6 degrees in Paris. 50 meters from the hotel you will find the metro and if you wish to go shopping you reach Galerie de la Faytte in 10 minutes by foot.

Dear Sir Jan,

We are very thankful for this nice comment you wrote.

We are lucky enough to be in an attractive part of Paris but not a noisy street. As you said it, the rooms in our courtyard are very quiet, but even the ones on the street side are not noisy.

We hope to have the pleasure to see you next time, when Paris will be warmer maybe :)

We arrived tired on 28th November having left London at 7AM on the Eurostar. Our booking was for 3 nights and when we arrived at the hotel, Damien on the front desk already knew our booking and knew to expect us. He then informed us that the room was ready for us at 11AM despite check-in being at 2PM and also that we had been upgraded to a larger room courtesy of the hotel. Damien was then kind enough to answer all of our persistent tourist questions about restaurants and places to visit etc, with every one of his recommendations being excellent.
The room was modern, clean, well stocked with toiletries, tea and coffee and mini bar snacks. The bed was very comfortable, shower was great and room had very good climate control.
The hotel itself is located right beside the number 7 metro line which takes you right into town giving you very easy access to main attractions like The Louvré so the hotel is perfect for hopping on and off the metro.
All staff members were happy to recommend restaurants to us and every one of their recommendations turned out to be excellent. Café l'auberge, Les Philosophes both excellent.

Overall, i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an affordable, high quality hotel with instant metro access and fantastic, knowledgable staff.

As a travel agent for many years, I have come to trust the Best Western hotels in Europe to be consistently clean, well-maintained and professionally managed. This hotel is no exception. The rooms are designed to ingeniously use all available space effectively. The bed afforded a good nights sleep and the hotel was amazingly quiet. We enjoyed the substantial buffet breakfast to start our day and found everyone on the staff to be personable and accommodating.
Damien and Hassen pleasantly suffered our tourist questions and made our stay special. The only thing missing is an ocean view for us Californians! Great value in pricey Paris!

Our stay was excellent. Mia and her colleagues welcoming, always cheerful and very helpful. The rooms were spotless and lovely comfortable beds. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. A short walk from Gare du Nord. Metro 50 m away so everywhere really accessible. On first afternoon we walked to Sacre Coeur so for us good location. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you, excellent
