“Fine new hotel in booming Paris quartier (Paris 10th arr.)”
Reviewed February 28, 2011

On 66, quai des Jemmapes (Paris, 10th arrondissement) , along the Canal Saint Martin and not far from the illustrious 'Hotel du Nord', you'll find the new Citizen Hotel, a small hotel with only 12 rooms. We had the "Suite Zen" with a family of 3 and that did the trick! The room was fitted with trendy and practical beautifully designed wooden furniture, made to measure. Beds were lush. Isolation from street noise and inside atmosphere regulation (airco) excellent. A croissant breakfast with good coffee or tea is included. With its very pleasant atmosphere, this hotel is a true gem in the Paris hotellerie world.

We are just back from a very enjoyable short break to Paris. This hotel is a rare find. The location is perfect, with the metro a short walk away and the velib bicycles 20m away. We were able to hop on the bicycles and cycle straight into the city centre in 20 minutes - very enjoyable. The area is non touristy and very french, with a handful of very good local cafes and restaurants within 100m of the hotel.
The staff are very helpful, the rooms well designed, soundproofed from street and immaculate. Ipads were a nice touch. We did not avail of the breakfast but in hindsight we really should have as it was good value and in a lovely setting which would have set us up nicely for the cycle into town.
Well designed, very safe, great location, lovely staff, very clean and comfortable - in short Perfect.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone and we can't wait to get back again for another short break.

My partner and I wanted to discover a new side of Paris.
And finding this hotel was the icing on the cake.
Canal St. Martin even in grrrrr cold December has so much
charm and warmth.
Le Citizen Hotel with its very personalized and really caring service
made us feel so "at home". A Boutique Hotel at its best.
Great Price, Great Location, Excellent Service.
We look forward to spending a Parisienne Spring or Summer here...

I was stranded in Paris two nights by ice and snow and a friend recommended I try this new little hotel on the canal St. Martin. That has truly saved the day. Not only this is one of my favorite quartiers in Paris, but waking up blessed with such beautiful (snowy) views of the canal has made me forget my shouting arguments with Eurostar personnel and that I ought to go back to London.
I have attached a picture of what Sophie - the delightful and ever-helpful hostess - has prepared for me on my third trip back from the Gare du Nord (the hotel is conveniently 15mn walk from the station).
Everything is lovely and thought through, and made to be felt like a home away from home.

On a previous visit to Paris, we discovered the Canal Saint-Martin area. A "tres" hip area that is popular with Parisians but where few tourists venture. It's unfortunate - but at the same time if the tour buses started to arrive - it would lose its charm.

In the spring and summer you will find lots of locals flocking to the banks of the Canal St. Martin. Couples pushing baby carriages, people riding bikes, and simply sitting in a Cafe or along the canal watching the boats go by.

To learn more about the Canal St. Martin and the area, take a look at this video:
http://www.geobeats.com/videoclips/france/paris/canal-st-martin

On our latest visit, we decided to try the new Le Citizen hotel directly on the Canal and recently opened this fall. Wonderful experience!

Although it is located away from the tourist crowds, it is a short metro ride to all the major tourist areas of Paris.

Comfortable beds, chic design, and accommodating staff (yes in Paris!). For the price (remember this is Paris) we found this hotel to be fantastic value.

Stylish design + Comfortable beds + Reasonable Price + Great location = GREAT STAY

If your thinking of going, book ahead as this is a small hotel, about a dozen rooms, and I'm certain it will fill up quickly as more people learn about it.

Great night's sleep in this new design hotel, just 12 rooms including some great suites, all overlooking the canal. Good shops and restaurants in the area and easy access to anywhere you want to go in Paris. Fantastic hotel breakfast and friendly service. Would definitely go back, you will not find better value in central Paris for somewhere this stylish and comfortable.
