Situated directly opposite the main entrance to the Gare Du Nord railway station the Mercure Paris Terminus Nord hotel is ideally positioned for first time visitors to Paris who have travelled using Eurostar. It eliminates the need for taxis or the metro both which can be daunting prospects for anyone unfamiliar with the Paris transport system.
The hotel offers various room types but there are limited numbers available above the basic entry standard double or twin. Our room was a standard double.
One major bonus is the fact that the hop on hop off tour bus has a stop 20 yards to the left of the hotel entrance.
We were on the top floor (6th) with an outside aspect and veranda.
The room was on the small size with little room either side of the standard double bed but not a problem. There was only sufficient space for one armchair and a small table, a 20 inch flat screen TV and kettle with tea and coffee supplies were in situ. A decent size bathroom with shower above bath and hair dryer were to a reasonable standard. There is a safe in the wardrobe but unfortunately ours did not work and we had to use a safe in the reception area which was very inconvenient and our electronic room key failed everyday which was extremely frustrating.
All reception staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful, courteous at all times and more than willing to converse in English.
We opted to pre purchase what the hotel refer to as a continental breakfast and to our very pleasant surprise we discovered that it was far more than that. A good variety of the usual meats, cheeses, breads, fruits and preserves were supported by a cooked option of eggs (various) bacon and sausage each day all nicely presented and pleasant to eat.
A good mid range hotel but not quite 4 star at the standard level.
