Reviewed April 30, 2012

Spent a long weekend in Paris, and stayed at Hotel Altona, with my girlfriend. Room we stayed in could've done with a lick of paint, but, our bed was accommodating and comfortable, and the sheets and towels were changed every day. We found the staff very friendly and helpful; one of the twins, who own the hotel, on arrival, helpfully carried my girlfriend's suitcases to our room and even recharged her BB & her cell phone, during our stay. Breakfast was sufficient, if boring, but, hey, it's a two star hotel. We never had to queue. Nothing was too much trouble for the pleasant and very friendly maitre d'hotel. As an alternative to using the dining room there is a friendly Algerian eatery two doors away, on one side of the hotel, that serves delicious food, and a well stocked convenience store on the other, where, when we bought our nightly bottle of vino, the shop assistant helpfully removed the cork for us. How's that for the service? We liked the neighbourhood. Lots of decent eateries. We saw youths hanging about, but, never found them frightening. A smile goes a long way. It is close to the Gare du Nord, which made our arrival from England on Eurostar hassle free. Convenient for buses and the Metro. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting basic but reasonable accommodation. Saved Euros were channelled to some very nice meals accompanied by fantastic French wines!

My girlfriend and I stayed there last week (unfortunately, the booking was made for us by somebody else who unfortunately had not consulted this site or any others) and my girlfriend got covered in bed bug / flea bites. The room was absolutely awful, as was the welcome. Internet extremely slow, if it works at all. Dingy and depressing. And not even that cheap... Avoid at all costs!

I didn't like anything about the hotel, and I would definitely not recommend to anyone to stay here! The hotel is in a totally dodgy area of Paris. The room was extremely dirty and aged, it looked like a 50 year old room that hasn't gone through any redecoration since it's been built... The towels were properly dirty, the door of the shower couldn't be closed (it was too big for the space), there was no real hot water, only warm, only 2 plugs were working out of 4, the room is dark, the breakfast is poor. Terrible experience!!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor in a double bedroom, that was completely awful, I don't know abut the...

We arrived here for a 2 day rock- concert trip.
Well, overall just not where i want to stay.
Like mentioned we decided to sleep in clothes to nor get bitten by bugs.
Hotel needs renewal , then maybe it can be much nicer.
Will not try breakfast , since shops are around .
Worn out rooms , dirty carpet, useless furniture.
Good feature is free wifi, which allows me tto share my opinion with you.
