“Great find for an Ibis - ideal location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

This was a really nice find for our one night stopover in Paris, it is in easy walking distance of the metro, restaurants and gay bars.

The hotel entrance is grand and welcoming, the staff were extremely polite and helpful and the room was modern, clean and comfortable with a nice bed and bathroom. There were no views other than of the building works nearby - but we didn't expect it for the price.

We would definitely stay here or in this area again - it was ideal for night-life, restaurants, metro and gay bars.

Me and my husband, mom and in-laws (couple in their 70s) came here on Thursday, booked 3 rooms for 4 nights. We arrived on Thursday at 11 am and asked for early check-in which was not available. Left our luggage there and went to have lunch. Came back at 2pm and still nothing (check-in is supposed to be at 12). We waited another hour in the lobby for our rooms (only because I kept asking for our rooms).

Then on Sunday midday as *everything* nearby is closed (even breakfast in the hotel) we decided to go to the bakery around the corner and buy our breakfast there (given my in-laws were starving). Went back to the hotel's nice terrace and paid 10€ for 5 espressos. Took our bread out of the shopping bags just to be told (in French) that we couldn't eat there, even though the terrace and restaurant were *EMPTY*. Then this same person walked around near our table several times until we left with our bread to our rooms. Very rude.

The only good service was that from the cleaning leadies. Very pleasant and pret to help.

Rooms, decent sized and clean, location very good. If you want to have nice breakfast during weekdays for half the price, cross the street and go to the cafe in the left corner.

The hotel is in a good location, about 5 minute walk to Bastille metro where you can get downtown in only a couple stops. We chose this hotel because it was close to the metro and we couldn't afford the obscene costs of the downtown hotels. We also like to choose Ibis in general wherever we go.

The rooms are very clean (almost sparkling) but they are tiny. I can say that my ensuite washroom at home is the same size as this room and washroom. The washroom is tiny tiny, my husband hit his head on the wall at least twice when getting up from the toilet (the wall is right there). The water from the shower goes all over the floor. The beds are very short to, I'm 5'3 and my feet were right at the end of the bed.

There are tons of restaurants around, all in different price ranges. One place we got 2 cappucinos for 10 euro. Another we got 2 sandwiches, a crepe and a bottle of water for 13 euro.

The breakfast was 9.50 euro - very expensive by my standards, especially considering it was continental. But I guess this is normal in Europe. The food was good though compared to the other hotels we stayed at which included breakfast.

BEWARE! We asked the front desk to call our cab to go back to the airport. The cab started the fare at 20 euro!! When I asked why he suddenly couldn't speak English well and muttered something about it being because we got the hotel to call. It ended up costing us 70 euro to get back to the airport (20 minute ride) compared to the 55 euro is cost to get to the hotel during rush hour (1 hour ride). We would of taken the RER back if it had been open but we couldn't since it was 5am.

There are lockers by the lobby to store luggage, costs 2 euro per locker I think.

The wifi is very good, we never had any problems.

Overall I would stay here again.

Excellent location with nearby metro station and lots of cafes. open surriundings. No cogestion compared to hotels near opera garnier. very safe for travelling around even at 12 midnight. Small rooms but paris hotels are costly with small rooms. overall good stay.

Room Tip: Should have a cupboard

Whenever I go to Paris, it's my first choice. Close to Bastille Metro Station with an excellent connection to the entire city, straight lines from Gare du Nord and Gare de Lyon, walking distance to the Notre Dame and the Quartier Latin, straightn into the rest of the city, via Place de la Bastille. Tripping distance to Rue de la Roquette with all the bars and restaurants. So location-wise,very nice for a city trip.

Utilities at the hotel are good: small, but clean rooms, very friendly staff, nice bar.. I never use the restaurant due to all the restaurants in the area, incl for breakfast so no review there. But it is often quite busy, so that's a good sign in my book.
