Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 18, 2011

le citizen is the perfect hotel for people who are looking for a non-typical touristic paris experience. the staff, lead by the charming and charismatic sophie, is helpful, committed and very friendly. they advise on restaurants and cultural programs and give the guest a very warm and welcome feeling. each room is equipped with an iPad, which not only serves as a paperless communication device with the hotel staff but also as a nice and useful tool to explore the immediate surroundings and paris as a whole.

the small size of the hotel with only 12 rooms creates an intimate relationship with the the hotel staff. the room prices are not cheap but are in line with the average paris hotel fares.

over all we were more than happy and we strongly recommend this hotel for all lovers of the unconventional, the environment, interior design. but the best is the personal relationship with hotel staff. thanks for that. we will be back.

the rooms are classy & modern in an urban way, the people are very helpful and the location is superb especially for people looking to live in the hipper region around st. martin and bellevile. close to a couple of good bistrots. the receptionist makes reservations in selected restaurants well in advance for her guests, so you might be the one to be placed in a good spot withouth having to care to make phone calls (like us).

check out the "cambodga" around the corner for its great food or the hotel du nord to enjoy modern french cuisine while watching all the hipsters come and go. 10 min walk to gare de l'est.

We chose this hotel based on other reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were given a very warm welcome and coffee on arrival and offered local knowledge and help with resevervations at restaurants and events. It's well worth booking the tranfer from Gare du Nord/airport through the hotel. The Zen suite on the 6th floor was a great room, light and spacious with the comfiest bed and best shower! The Canal St Martin is a great area with cafes, bars and restaurants, away from the very overcrowded tourist areas, half an hour to 40 minutes leisurely stroll to Montmatre, Pere Lachaise cemetary, the Marias area and the Seine. The Carillon bar on the corner of Rue Alibert about 5 minutes walk is a good, relaxed place for a beer and have live music on a Saturday evening. The canal side on a Saturday evening was a favourite place for local people to gather for picnics and had a great atmosphere.

We would definitely return to this hotel and recommend the area as a good base for exploring Paris.

It was a great pleasure to stay in Le Citizen Hotel.
The rooms are very comfortable and the beds are from the best quality.
The neighborhood is very interesting and not to touristic.
The personal interest of the owners and staff is very warm and helpful.

All the guest get an iPad at arrival which gives you as a guest a lot of comfort, makes it easy to check surrounding and what to do.

A terrific location for a modern, stylish hotel. Compact rooms make the most of the building's small footprint. Every part of the stay was well thought through, from small details like room keys that you just wave over the locks to free supply of iPads for guests to use.

We loved the breakfast room with Japanese-style simplicity.

A MUST for all people who appreciate design and style.

My wife and I just returned from our six night stay in the Le Citizen hotel and absolutely loved it. The Zen Suite on the 3rd floor overlooked the Canal and provided plenty of space to stretch out while enjoying the view. The boats going through the locks of the canal were very cool to see once or twice a day from our comfy perch. The bathroom had the added benefit of having a rain shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water, which had been hit or miss on stays in other French hotels. Overall our room was well designed with a good size, for Europe, seating area, plenty of space for storage and a relaxing atmosphere.

The hotel is very well located, being about a 5 minute walk from the Jacques Bonsergent and 7-10 minute walk from the Republique metro stops. From these it is a short ride to any of the major sites within in Paris. There are numerous cafes within walking distance and a great little bakery down Rue Lancry which is fantastic for a morning snack before hopping on the Metro.

My wife and I thought the iPads were a good addition, keeping us minimally connected to the world and providing an Angry Bird fix if needed.

The staff was incredibly friendly and responsive to any needs we had. They ensured our stay was very comfortable and hassle free. We recommend this hotel very highly and can’t wait to return in the future.
