Mercure Paris Gare Du Nord La Fayette
Ranked #1,028 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The location of this hotel is very close to Gare du Nord and del'Est with national and international trains as well as metro lines stopping there. If you arrive at CDG airport and use the RER traing to town, Gare du Nord will be on this line. Only about 5 more mins with RER to Les Halles, 20 mins for walking to Sacre Coer. We chose this place, as it was much less expensive than the Mercure Gare Du Nord Terminus, which is opposite the station Gare Du Nord at a much higher price point.
Booking went ok through HRS. I called in a few days prior to have my reservation confirmed, which has been answered very friendly. Also on arrival there was a very friendly welcome and quick check-in, which is not always customary in France nor in Paris. The hotel is not large. I had a room to the main street on third floor. Of course this is noisy during the day with the street and also the arrival and departure of trains at Gare del'Est station opposite the street. However at night when closing the windows, it was relatively quiet and good for a comfortable sleep.
Unless other reviewers I didn't feel unsafe in the streets at night or a "Ghetto" style. This is a very typical Paris neighborhood and relatively safe. Of course it is not Munich nor Hamburg.
One evening I took a hike to Sacre Coer in about 20 minutes or so and kept walking until I reached the famous Moulin Rouge after another 20 mins or so.
Compared to other places in Paris, the room was not too small at all. It was well appointed, nicely renovated. The only thing was the shower was missing a curtain or door, so some water spilled on the bathroom floor. You'd better take a short shower only.
Breakfast in the ground floor of the hotel was quite good, not too busy, had a large selection of items (muesli, boiled and scrambled eggs, healthy food, pastries, rolls) and a nice atmoshpere. At 14 € not quite cheap, but OK for what you get, and a good breakfast is a solid start for a long day at an exhibition. Other members of our team got much less breakfast at the station.

Room Tip: General tip for all Paris hotels - highest floor to avoid the street noise. Room to the back street...

I needed a place to stay in Paris before catching Eurostar back to London and this place caught my eye despite the mixed reviews on here. I booked online via the Accor Hotels site and had to opt for the only type of room available, a Privilege room with a double bed.
On the day of arrival I received a phone call from the hotel at lunchtime to confirm my booking and ask for my estimated arrival time. I found this reassuring. I arrived there in the evening and found it easily after a 5 minute walk turning left from Gare du Nord. The man on reception was welcoming, efficient and informative. Within a couple of minutes I was in the lift up to the 7th floor at the top of the hotel. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable and there were some nice touches: free soft drinks in the fridge, dressing gown and slippers, ipod docking station. There was a big screen TV but no English channels. Well, the tedious, in my opinion, BBC World was listed but no picture appeared. The view over Paris was very pleasant.
Anyway, I had a good night's sleep and the noise level was very low but I was irritated by the noise of the air-conditioning which was on continuously. For me, that was the only bad point about the stay. Maybe it's my English sensibility, but I did find it strange that the sliding door to the bathroom was in clear glass giving good view of the toilet from the bed. As I was on my own, that was not a problem.
Check out time was noon which was convenient for me. The man on reception was very friendly and did the business quickly. So, all in all, a hotel I'd be happy to stay in again.

Very helpful reception staff, handy for Gare du Nord & l'Est. All happy with rooms - typically small, but well modernised - only disconcerting item in one of the 3 rooms only - bathroom glazed to room, but obscure to wash basin & shower area, and clear to wc! Seemed the wrong way round? Good breakfast with big choice available, but lighter continental can be found opposite Gare du Nord for half the cost

Firstly..location is ok..close to train station but street outside is basically ghetto style...felt unsafe at night.
Travelling in a group of seven and booked three rooms. Were told when booking that one adult and two kids in a room was ok..it was if you wanted to sleep on the floor...literally...only two single beds and no couch..asked for a pullout bed....a straightup NO

Airconditioning doesnt work..when I asked about it, they shrugged their shoulders..is 27 degrees plus in the room

Room is cramped with no facilities...exdept for the overpriced mini bar

The shower/toilet combination has a glass door..which didnt open or close..no privacy whatsover and no screen on the shower..when we were finishing showering, the toilet had water running off it as did the basin and we had to put our towels on the floor to stop water running out onto the floor and dry down the toilet. Of course after that, we had to walk through water to use any amentities.

No ironing facilities so went to reception to ask for an iron and board..got handed an iron..when asked if they had a board...another NO. Seeing as how all our towels were no either soaked or used to wipe down the toilet...could only iron on the bed which was useless..

Thats the first night..we're still here and have asked to change rooms..we'll see what happens

Room Tip: If given 201....walk out

very tiny room, but extremely comfortable, with excellent amenities. Can only recommend for location, style and service.

Loved the mini bar, safe in room and excellent TV. Lighting was the best I have seen in a hotel room in many years.

This is a very convenient quiet hotel just a few hundred yards from the station. It is away from the bustling crowds around the station. It has recently been modernised to a high standard and in good taste. The hotel is quiet and staff at all levels are welcoming and pleasant. It only has 40? Rooms so early booking is required.

We stayed there with family (2 adults nada child 4 yo). Standard room with large bed. Staff were very kind to provide us with the quiet room - windows to the quiet street. Th hotel is clean and new. There is another Mercure just across the street to the Gare du Nord and that one looks terrible. But for us it was unusual to have small room, but that is normal for European hotels. Breakfast was good. Staff welcome. Wifi might be better - connection was not stable and required to watch commercial regularly. Also, the advantage is the close location of the Metro/RER/train stations.
