Great find in the charming neighbourhood of Menilmontant/Belleville. Newly renovated and spotlessly clean. The little kitchenette was well-equipped. About a 10 min. walk from metro stations Couronnes or Menlmontant.

Fantastic little place only a metro trip away from the centre of Paris.
Lovely room, clean, warm and in a non touristy location so you can appreciate 'real Paris'.
We had a room with a kitchenette which was very handy. We also appreciated the extra touches such as complimentary fresh fruit, water and soft drinks and a chocolate on the pillow!
The shared bathoom was very clean and had nice powerful shower.
Would highly recommend this to anyone.

This place is an absolute gem. In the suburb of Menilmontant, it is very local, with few tourists.
The accomodation was an oasis for us after a long day of travelling.
We travelled with our 5 yo and had booked a junior suite. The accomodation, renovated this year, was fantastic. They have retained the traditional stone wall to the rear of the apartment which gives an olde world feel, in contrast to the modern decor. It is clean, functional, and very comfortable and has everything you need to be fully self catering. There was an extremely comfortable sofa bed which was discretely made up whilst we were out for dinner.
The check-in was wonderful and seemless and we were made to feel very welcome.
The in room information was very helpful, the in room heating under our control, and the bathroom
huge and modern.The shower was fantastic.

We were pleasantly surprised to recieve a basket of fresh croissants each morning. We had the
usual tea and coffee supplies, but in addition we had fresh fruits supplied and soft drinks in our
fridge inclusive.

We tried the nearby Entrepots restaurant which we would highly recommend and the another pub/restaurant in the square, which was pretty average.
Transport wise , we were very close to the Metro and buses. On leaving the Metro to find the hotel, be sure to walk UP the hill past KFC , (don't mistake BLVD for RUE). Having said that, we found some great little bars on our tour de Blvd de Menilmontant ;)

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It provided service above and beyond, the accomodation was wonderful and the location too.
Finally, thank you to the wonderful managers at Hotel de la Mar, who made our stay so wonderful......

Room Tip: The suites are at the back of the hotel on the ground away from the street side, though I doubt the...

Single room is of a nice size, very clean, comfortable bed. Useful to have a fridge, kettle and 2 hob rings to cook on, good amount of cutlery, plates, mugs etc. Tea/coffee provided. Towels lovely and large, bathroom was only a short walk along the corridor. Location is quiet far out of the centre but is near to a metro stop so this was not a problem. There are lots of supermarkets nearby and the area generally felt safe although I would be cautious about walking down some of the quieter streets late at night. The accommodation itself felt very secure. Staff were friendly and helpful and provided you with plenty of information. A couple of negatives - the fridge could sometimes be noisy at night, I couldn't leave the window open at night as it was door sized so let too much noise in if open, as it was hot when I stayed this was a bit of a nuisance. The shared showers flooded the floor of the whole bathroom area, also you had to unlock the bathroom door with a key which was a bit fiddly. Would have loved a sieve/colander in the kitchen area to drain pasta in. Overall this was a good place to stay whilst visiting Paris for a few nights.

This hotel is truly value for money! I stayed in a single room at the ground floor facing the street. The room has en-suite bathroom and kitchen. Every morning, I got delicious bun from the staff. I could too access internet with the free wi-fi.

Location wise, it is very strategic. Cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, grocery shops, bus stop (bus #96) and Menilmontant metro station are within walking distance. The #96 bus has direct access to Saint-Michael where Notre Dame is located.

However, if you reach Paris via train arriving at Gare du Nord, it is advisable to take the bus rather than metro, especially when you come with big luggage. It is hardly to find lift or elevator in Paris metro stations. I made a mistake when I arrived. I had to carry my 20kg of 28” 4-wheel luggage walking up and down the stairs while taking metro. Bus is much more convenient and easier. From Gare nu Nord, walk out from the station, across the street, take a bus #26 with direction to Nation. Get off at Pyrenees-Menilmontant station. Then, you can easily take a bus #96 direction to Hotel de Ville / Gare Montparnesse or to walk to the next station – Henri Chevreau. From the Henri Chevreau bus stop, just walk down, along Rue Henri Chevreau till the fist junction. Turn left and you could see the small signboard of Hotel de la Mare.

This hotel is strongly recommended.

Overall service has exceeded my expectations.
The staffs were very friendly and professional, so that the hotel atmosphere is very comfortable.
The Rooms were well equipped and very new and clean. They changed sheets every day. The shared bathroom facilities are very clean.
Although the bed would be slightly shaking and made sound when turning, it has not significantly effect on the quality of sleep for me.

The accommodation experience let me have a better impression of Paris.
If I had the opportunity to travel again in Paris, I will also consider staying here.
