“Wonderful experience with aparthotel”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was our first experience staying at an aparthotel and I would recommend this location to anyone. The kitchenette allowed us to pick up local baked goods at several of the various bakeries along rue Didot and local cheeses from the neighbourhood shops to eat for breakfast in our room. Since the weather was so hot, often we only felt like a light meal or some ice cream at the end of the day and felt very comfortable dining in our room. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They have a computer in the lobby for anyone who forgets to bring a device with them. Laundry is in the basement but the dryer takes two cycles to dry a light load of socks and underwear (expensive). Close to trams and metro, lovely for walking at night and Les Artistes restaurant is close by for dinner at 60 rue Didot (excellent!). This hotel really made our stay much more comfortable and memorable.

First star: the welcoming staff...very courteous, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable

Second Star: The excellent position of the hotel...near Metro Plaisance (Line 13)...near lovely convenience store and supermarket...Boulangerie across the street with extraordinary bread and croissants...Sorry, but don't bother with the hotel's breakfast...I tried it once and despite being a buffet..I did not feel that the quality was there...No fresh fruits, pastries were below average and juices tasted like flavored water...

Third star: the sheer comfort of the beds and practicality of the kitchnette. I loved being able to make my own coffee in the morning and being able to have everything I need from silverware, mugs, a microwave, a fridge...The Wi-Fi was excellent

Four Star: The value is truly outstanding

Why not fifth star: I found the hallways to look either very dirty or in dire need of a new carpet. The breakfast really needs improvement.

We stayed here in a one bedroomed apartment in September 2013 and thought it was fantastic!

There were four of us all together - my husband, son (18 months old) and my sister. So my husband, my son and I took the bedroom while my sister happily slept on the very comfortable sofa bed in the living room.

The kitchen was much bigger than I thought it would be, although as we only stayed for four nights we didn't prepare anything beyond sandwiches. Still it was great to have the option as Paris can be very expensive, and we would have cooked had we stayed longer. The fridge was very handy to keep water cool and store yoghurts, cheese etc. We were very surprised to have a bath, which was an added bonus.

We had a lovely view of a the huge jungle like courtyard which backs onto a separate apartment block, full of tall tropical trees.

The Metro, like other people have said, is only a 10 minute walk and there is also another Station about a 20 minute walk away with an RER which takes you directly to the Gare Du Nord and CDG Airport if you don't fancy too many changes on the metro with luggage (which we didn't).

There are a selection of Bakeries to choose from for breakfast and a days supply of baguettes, and the hotel is right next door to a large supermarket with another on the way to the Plaisance Metro. There are also a few nice Restaurants on Rue Didot, and if you walk towards the Denfert Rochereau Station there are plenty more, plus a huge highstreet full of shops.

Overall we thought it was a brilliant location, very friendly service and an extremely comfortable place to call home for four days. We will almost certainly stay here again, when we inevitably end up going for another trip to Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which backs onto the Courtyard for a nice view and probably less noise too!

More expensive than some other hotels on our European tour, but for Paris it was good value, especially if you pay in advance rather than on arrival.
The apartment was a reasonable size, simply but comfortably furnished, with a small kitchen and all necessary equipment and utensils.
Location is on the south side of the inner city but right next to a bus route right into town, and 10 mins walk to the metro.
Service was helpful and polite and also English-speaking. Parking was available but for a rather hefty Euros25 per day.

Our family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights at the start of August and we happily booked here for our return leg home. We found the 1 bedroom apartment suited the needs of our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and having a kitchenette made for a cost-friendly stay too. The hotel is conveniently located with a grocery store in the same block along with many bakeries within walking distance as well as a cheese shop and deli shop. As a result we are are now suffering from baguette-withdrawal now that we are home!

We made our way in to the city centre by making use of the tram and bus- we bought the book of 'carnets' for 13.50 euros which gave us a pack of 10 tix that are transferable on tram/ bus/ metro in a 90 min window of time. There is a bus stop directly in front of the hotel and the tram is a 2 min walk. The neighbourhood was very safe and we felt comfortable walking about in the evening, especially coming home after our full days of sight-seeing in Paris. The wifi in the rooms was sometimes spotty but that was ok as the lobby's wifi was always stable....and frankly it was nice to be disconnected too! It was lovely for us to stay in a 'typical' Parisian neighbourhood and loved the experience so much for the front end of our trip that we happily booked again.

We had booked our first stay at the hotel via the hotel's website and making use of a website promo rate of 120 euros/ nights. For our second stay we booked via expedia. Value for money as the kitchenette and having 2 separate rooms for the 4 of us made for a very comfortable stay.

Special mention to Celine and Eloine for making our stays so stress-free. We booked our airport shuttle through the hotel and made it to CDG without issues.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the garden were very quiet

I am in the hotel using the super fast free Internet.
The room (one bedroom plus living room) is nice, as large as needed not spotless though (smells a bit bad in the toilet and small kitchen could do with an extra scrub) but far from being dirty.
Rooms are well stocked with everything u need in the kitchen from pans to some dishwasher tablets.
Location is great for what we wanted (hospital) but still a stone's throw from supermarket and restaurants and cafes...
Great value for money. Not the 4 seasons but u get what u paid for. Would recommend.

We stayed at the Citadines Porte di Versaille from Aug 3-14 2013. There was a huge mix up with our trip provider (Trip Central/Air Transat). We will not book with them again!! The staff were wonderful. They really looked after us. They straightened everything out for us!!t They went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. The beds are very comfy. The kitchenette is perfect for cooking meals. The area is perfect. A little grocery store next door. The metro is a short walk (5-10 mins) and the bus stop is just across the road.The Thai restaurant up the road has awesome green curry chicken with coconut milk. Get the sticky rice as well!! We had an awesome time here and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a one bed room apartment. Lots of room for two people.
