if you're searching for a budget hotel, this place is it.

this hotel is near by the metro and easily accessible from
CDG airport, its about a 5 minute walk from the gare du nord stop.

it's about a 40 minute train ride on th B line(blue color on the map). i also purchased a week passed when i arrived monday, the cost was around 28e, additional 5e for
the passport size photo for the pass. visit parisbytrain . com, it's a great website with info and photos on how to find the train after exiting customs, where to purchase tickets and take the photos.

the hotel has a big Hotel D Amiens sign outside of it. at first glance of the location upon arrival, the area looked sketchy but it really isn't. plenty of people everywhere during all hours, i was out till 4 am almost every night and didn't feel threatened at all. there are several women beggars with children nearby though.

the check in was quick, about 5 minutes. i was handed one key and a piece of paper with the wifi info.

my room was on the third floor around the corner from the lift. the hallways are narrow and the walls are thin. doors seem to slam open and close through out the night as guest comes and goes, or brief conversations in the hallway. for the most part, it was fairly quite till about 10 am, that is when the cleaning begins and the guys outside my window begin their daily conversations with music.

i had a full size bed(two twins together)it was perfect for me, it's on the firm side. the blankets, sheets, and pillows all smelled clean/fresh but i didn't have any towels.

i walked downstairs and asked for towels, 5 minutes later, my towels were delivered.

the room is small but it's good for what i paid for. there were no ventilation control for the a/c. there is a window but no screen, you can also here the guys down there talking and playing their music while they do work. i don't think it's construction because i didn't hear any tools or loud pounding, just talking and soft music.

the room does not offer a clock, fridge to keep food/drinks cold, no coffee or hot water maker in the room but available all day downstairs.

the bathroom is also small but it comes with a small sink, toilet, and a stand up shower only - what else do you need in a bathroom. it also has a hairdryer with a 220v and 115v power source on the hairdryer unit. the rest of the outlets in the room were 220v.

the room also had a flat screen tv mounted on a wall in front of a desk and chair next
to the open cabinet. the free wifi worked well in my room during early mornings and late nights.

i wouldn't say this hotel is nearby to any attractions, the closest one was the palais garnier

it was about a thirty minute walk from the hotel, from there i kept walking and found myself somehow at the musee de louvre. i just walked and wandered around on foot, it was a lot of walking but i also discovered different areas on my on pace - avoid the hop on off bus.

plenty of restaurants near
the hotel, chinese fast food that closes at 22:00, LaCantina which seems to be open all night, japanese and several halal places. my favorite place was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, it's a pizza place called picolla pizza.

if you're on a budget, book this hotel. it's near the train so it's not difficult from getting to and from the airport, the area is safe with plenty of restaurants.

The hotel was fine. I stayed 3 nights. I wanted to be close to the train stations and this fit the bill. Walking around in the afternoon and evening it is a little bit sketchy with large groups of men hanging out on the sidewalks in the area. Didn't give me a good vibe.

Clean and maintained, very nicely located near Gare du Nord. No special luxury, but fair prices. Breakfast not included. The room felt very new when looking at wallpaper and furnitures, but for some reason the bathroom ceiling was detached.

This hotel is ideally located for both Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est. We were able to check in speedily after a 5 minute walk from Gare du Nord and were out and about sightseeing within about half an hour of stepping off the Eurostar. Staff were friendly and efficient and the room was clean and comfortable. The only slight issue was the continental-style round pillows which my son found less comfortable. However, we enjoyed a good night's sleep in a convenient location.

I was in Hotel Damiens for holidays 4 days (2011). The receptionist called Rachid is very nice and helpful. The hotel is very well located and you can easily travel around. The area also has many places to eat and coffee shops.
