I have stayed in over 8 Hotel Ibis in Paris and this has to be my favourite one. There are lots of reasons why it shouldn't be (or rather why other Ibis hotels should be considered better), but I really didn't want to leave here.

The location is so-so... as I have visited Paris 18 times and lived there for 4 months, location isn't really an issue for me, but for any first-time travellers, this probably isn't the place to stay as you are quite north of the city which can be a pain for tourism. Also, the hotel is in quite a rough neighbourhood of Paris, but personally I think that adds to the experience. I didn't get mugged or harassed etc so don't worry, but you may see the odd drug deal or the police arresting suspicious youths (a common occurrence in these parts of Paris).
It is right next to the Zenith, so if you fancy seeing a concert during your stay, this could be the perfect place.

What I LOVED about this hotel was its view. It is right on Parc de la Villette which, in my opinion, is beautiful. The river separates the hotel from the park, but the views from the rooms are truly wonderful. It's lovely to be able to come out of the hotel and immediately be walking along the river Seine. Given its location, it's also very quiet and tranquil (it is set back from the 'rough streets' I was talking about earlier, but close enough (2 minute walk) to the main street where you can find anything you fancy whether it's fast-food, restaurants, supermarkets, cigarettes etc.

The hotel itself was extremely clean with a good-size room and bathroom. No complaints from me at all.

This hotel is on the waterfront immediately opposite the Cite de Science accessible over either of two bridges in about 10 minutes. Modern interior, large rooms, good beds, aircon, wifi etc. Range of food not extensive but adequate. Small bar on corner opposite does a very good meal and not too expensive, otherwise walk down the side street to the main street. Staff are very helpful. Internet access in foyer. It got very full and a bit noisy in the dining room in the evening but otherwise no problems.

Room Tip: Front and back both quiet as off main road. Disused railway line at back and canal basin at front...

A standard budget Ibis with small, outdated rooms. The hotel was undergoing some repairs during our visit. Free wifi available throughout. Nice location close to the interesting Cité des Sciences and only 10mins from metro. Would stay again.

This a fairly large hotel with basic but adequate facilities. Only stayed for one night. Hotel was full and they had double booked our rooms when we arrived. This was quickly sorted out. Rooms were small but clean and adequate for short stay. Tiny aeroplane like bathroom with tiny shower and no room to move. Very hot and no aircon. No tea or coffee making facilities in room which I missed a lot. No english tv channels either. No wardrobe just a small hanging area for 2 or 3 items. Comfortable bed. Bar closes at midnight. Breakfast was good with ham, cheeses, croissants, yoghurts jams and cakes and serves up to midday. This is basically a hotel to just get your head down and head out. There is no reason to want to spend time in the hotel, In the surrounding area there are bars and restaurants along the canal. Metro is 5 minute walk away with easy access to any where in Paris and Gare du Nord. All in all good budget hotel for a short stay.

Stayed for 5 nights recently in this modern IBIS hotels. I will summarize the features of this hotel in Positives and Negative list below.

Positive:
1. Reasonable Rate
2. Super Amazing bed
3. Modern interior, look and feel
4. Situated about 5-10 mins walk from Metro Line 7 and 5 mins to supermarket.
5. Staff understood English (to a reasonable extent)

Negative:
1. It takes about 30 mins to reach centre Paris (including walking time from Hotel to Metro)
2. The area appears dogdy and I would be cautious in the night, esp. while walking alone
3. There is no airconditioning in the entire hotel, something to be aware of while going in summer months. There is a ventilation system in the hotel, which cools down really slowly, it is unlikely that you can get a sleep without opening the window.
4. There is no cupboard or safe in the room
5. The closet can at best store a max of 6 shirts hanging
6. Room has perhaps the smallest bathroom, I have ever seen in recent times. It's roughly twice the size of a regular aeroplane toilet (Not a joke, literally true!).
7. There is nothing to see in the 19th district where the hotel is located, except immigrants.
8. Windows in the room are not sound proof.

If I visit next time and get something a better rate in the central Paris, I would avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: The river facing room have better view but can get really noisy in the dark as there drunk people sh...
