I stayed here for business in room 544 for 3 days because of a trade show around the corner.

What I liked
+ good restaurant
+ good breakfast
+ friendly staff that goes above and beyond (really!) - this is really a +++ here
+ free Wifi
+ free breakfast
+ free parking (*)
+ large bed
+ clean room
+ fast elevators that are secured with room keycard

What I didn't like
+ rooms tiny
+ bathroom even smaller - I was unable to turn myself around in it
+ tiny shower - I needed to open the bathroom door to get into it
+ I had 3 hours no energy in the hotel ... don't know what happend

As for the parking - to reach the hotel's garage you need to turn left BEFORE you reach the hotel before the pedestrian traffic light. The hotel has only 15 garage spaces which are VERY SMALL so you need to be a good driver to get into there and out there without scratches to your car. The hotel is not advertising the garage because it's so small. If you miss the turn into the garage you will need to make a big circle to get back there because all the roads are one way.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the river are the nicest ones

The staff looked after us well. The hotel is close enough by tube but a around 16 stops from the centre. However it only takes 20 minutes to get into Paris. We walked in stopping at the cafes etc and it took around a hour.

Very enjoyable stay, great friendly people to look after you.

It's a typical Ibis, conveniently locted near Le Zenith and quite close to the Metro station.

The staff is very helpful, although very poor with English.

The breakfast is rather poor, especially for its price.

The rooms. Well. I know that it's quite typical for Paris that hotels have small rooms. But COME ON! I mean I could not open my suitcase inside the room. I could not hang 4 shirts. And the bathroom? It's actually tough to sit on a toilet if your higher than 180 cm.

The rooms are tidy though, the internet is OK. If you get a good price and you are less than 180 cm - why not.

We stayed here whilst making our way between Madrid and London. The hotel is clean and comfortable and had some of the only truly friendly staff I've ever met in a french hotel (a rarity).

This hotel is ideal for those passing through for a short stay, being close to two of Paris' major train stations (Gare de Nord and Gare de l'Est).

As an Ibis hotel, it strikes the usual balance of comfort and value for money.

The restaurant is a great choice for a quick meal as well, being a cheap but filling option to find pizzas and pastas.

A hotel where the only lights are fluorescent tubes, where the toilet is molded from one plastic piece that seamlessly becomes the wall, where you don't get a key but a six-digit number for the door... But: Location is not bad for this part of the city. The wi-fi is faultless and fast. Breakfast is surprisingly edible and plentiful, especially from Parisian standards.
How to judge this place. Given the price, I suppose I should give it 3 out of 5, but ok, the toilet alone deducts a point, even though it (and the rest of the hotel) was spotlessly cleaned every day.
