Hotel du Nord - Le Pari Velo
Ranked #849 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Stayed three nights in this modest but very tastefully furbished hotel. Friendly staff and free bicycles on request. Beds were comfortable if a little short in length. Very pleasant atmosphere and surprisingly quiet for a centrally located hotel. Not cheap but good value for the district.
Didn't avail of breakfast so can't comment on the cuisine.
I can definitely recommend this hotel.

This was our first trip to Paris and we wanted to explore as much as possible so we booked this hotel as we found out it was close to the metro but instead of using the metro we ended up cycling around paris on the free bicycles the hotel offered which was awesome! we got to see paris in a whole different way! the rooms were clean and nice. If i remember correctly we payed around 70€ for a double room which is cheap for Paris. There was also free Wifi in the rooms which is always a plus. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel.

staff was friendly and kind. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice and affordable hotel in Paris close to attractions.

Friendly staff, small but comfortable rooms, and a beautiful breakfast room in the cellar. The hotel is convenient to Metro stops, and also to the Gare du Nord. As others have mentioned, the neighborhood is a little sketchy, which accounts for why the front door is always locked, but I wouldn't call it dangerous. We enjoyed our stay, and I'd stay here again.

Found this place via TripAdvisor. Rooms were comfortable I would call the rooms small but while staying in London our rooms were smaller than these. We stayed in a double for 71Euro. Room had a queen size bed, a small table w two chairs and a nice size bathroom. Everything was clean and that is very important to me.
What I liked best about this place was 1 Location and 2 staff was very friendly.

LOCATION:
You are half a block from the #5 Metro And a 20 walk away from Gare du nord (in case you are arriving by Eurostar like I did ) . The street the hotel is on is very quiet but close to a busy road filled w places to eat, drink, espresso, wine you name it, its close.

If you want a clean, comfy bed, in a nice location then look no further, this place is for you.

Very friendly staff, decent rooms, perfectly located, good money's worth – for a weekender in Paris, this is all one can ask for. And make sure to rent out the complimentary bicycles and explore the city that way. Very rewarding!

At first it seems a nice place but I was really dissapointed by their attitude towards me as a customer. You see, these free bikes are not well maintained at all. The lights don't work (quite dangerous in the crazy Paris traffic) and the bicycle chain is worn out. Which means, when you apply some force climbing one of the many hills of Paris, the chain gives away and your feet shoot forward, which makes a very loud noise. It's also tiring, totally uncool and a not fun way of riding a bike.
So when I asked for a good bike, first they told me they had no time to look for one. After I complained in a very polite way, they told me to go to a commercial bicycle-for-hire shop down the road. That was their concept of service.

I will never come back here and I would urge anybody not to visit this hotel, which clearly only wants your money. They don't care about you at all. A total let down.

Another thing, often there is nobody at the reception. You get your own key of the entrance so you can get in. But it didn't feel safe at all. It would be quite easy for a criminal to get in unnoticed.

Room Tip: Ask a room that does not smell like mine did, because it was near the kitchen. Very early in the mo...

For a two star hotel, this hotel provide the basic need. The room is small but very clean. the bed is comfortable and firm. It feels like a Tempur-Pedic mattresses. The bed cover on some of the picture was velvet red looks a bit out of fashion, but it is very comfortable and vivid.

I stay in the twin bed room with bath facing courtyard for one night and double bed facing street for three night with shower. The twin room is rectangular shape. The double room is square shape. I like the double room more than the twin room. It is facing the street. However, it is on a very quite street. Therefore, there are minimum street noise. In each floor, there are only four rooms. Therefore, there are minimum noise from other guest room.

This hotel is about twenty meters from subway Jacques Bonsergent. Therefore, if you would like to minimized walk, you should always change to line 5 and exit here. In addition, this station had only two entrance toward the hotel direction. Jacques Bonsergent is only two stops from Gare Du Nord where you could take REB B to CDG.

Jacques Bonsergent is also bus stop for bus 65 that would reach Gare de Lyon. It is very convenient if you have luggages that you do not want to make subway connection change.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our hotel is a small one with 23 rooms that are warm, cozy and attractively decorated. When our guests arrive, we give them a key to the entrance door to the hotel as well as a room key. Right away everyone feels at home or rather, in a guesthouse. Our rooms are all different, each one has its own style: Oriental, pop, empire, Pompei, and so on.... We take particular care with the breakfast, served in the basement with its old-fashioned stone ceiling. Our breakfast consists in croissants, the traditional baguette and whole-grain bread, made not by an industrial bakery but by our local baker. The jams are homemade, prepared by us using quality fruits. All the products we use are chosen and furnished by local shops. Our guesthouse is located in a central district animated by its residents. It is a popular district for Parisians that is famous for its picnics along the Canal Saint-Martin, its bars, its restaurants and small local shops. All around you will find many Parisian brands, boutiques, bookstores, and food stores. We have selected them and tested them before recommending them. For getting around in Paris we have bicycles that are freely available during your stay. This is also part of our approach. Whatever the reason for your visit to Paris, we hope you will appreciate the atmosphere of our guesthouse. ... more   less
