Holiday Inn Express Paris-Canal de la Villette

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights in early November 2013. We found the hotel to be perfect for our stay. The price was right and it included breakfast.

The hotel is on a canal a short distance from Paris center. We arrived by train from CDG airport at Gare De Nord train terminal. The train fare also included metro fare in Paris. The metro stop is about three easy blocks to the hotel no steps after leaving the metro station. The staff was very easy to talk with and they even recommended we eat our breakfast either early or late the next day as a large group was leaving the hotel. The breakfast was adequate with hot or should I say warm eggs and sausages, cold cuts, cheese, cereal, fruits, breads, croissants, yogurts, and choice of coffee. More than enough to satisfy, however not very special.

We toured Paris from the hotel using the metro system. Buy the ten ticket carnet and share it with a travel companion, it is a good value over the single ticket price. We found the distance from the hotel to the metro stop to be an easy walk and we were in Paris in a few stops.

The hotel provided a premium room for us as IHG platinum members. The room was large and had a balcony and view down the canal. The bed was not very good and in need of replacement. We mentioned our displeasure with the bed and we were told new beds were ordered.

I would stay at this hotel again depending on the price.

Room Tip: Near a metro stop in a quiet neighborhood.

We were 3 adults who stayed in this Holiday Inn hotel 4 days in October 2013. It is not a very big hotel but all about our stay was excellent. The spread at breakfast was plenty and varied; one will always find something to eat whether hot or cold. The desk attendants were always helpful at all time. They helped us get to the metro and gave us some advice on where to go at the time we wanted. They were quite attentive with our every need.
The room was kept clean every day and the bathroom, new, was spotless.
Although the hotel is not in the center of town, it is nonetheless accessible to two nearby metro stops. I have already recommended friends to this hotel and will return without hesitation>

Room Tip: I cannot help in this instance.

The view on the Canal de la Villette in the busy city of Paris is a relaxing moment in itself.
yet in the morning it is not relaxing to try to get your breakfast as the breakfast room is apparently to small for the hotel and most of the time crowded and therefore noisy but otherwise the location and the facilities of the hotel are well.

Room Tip: check to get a room with a view on the canal

Dear Kagb666,

Thank youfor your review of our hotel. Please excuse us if the Breakfast Room seemed to small for you. Our Breakfast Team takes extra precaution to ensure that all guests are seated as soon as possible and are able to relax while eating breakfast in the morning from 7AM to 10AM. Sometimes, we do have a lot of people who arrive at the same time, but we open up the TV area and Bar so that everyone is accomodated.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your room, with its wonderful and relaxing views on the canal. It is a rarety in Paris and we take pride in this.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience with the breakfast room and they have been notified to ensure that all guests are satisfied when eating in the morning.

We hope to welcome you once again in our hotel so that you may see just how good our services are.

Kind Regards,
Daryl Cruz

The hotel is located five minutes away of two metro stations (Crimee and Riquet) and we found very easy to get to most torist area in around ten minutes. Good breakfast and perfectly cleaned bedrooms, but for sure, what we really enjoyed, was the customer service at the reception desk, where we always found the best advise from the staff, all of them speak two and three languages, so no problems at all and were always ready to help with a very nice attitude. 100% recommended

The Holiday Inn Express Paris-Canal de la Villette is a very nice property in an excellent location.
There are three (3) Metro lines within walking distance. While some may feel that the hotel is a distance from the sights, in reality it is just a short Metro ride to anywhere. Additionally, the main train station Gare du Nord is a 20 minute walk from the hotel or a very short Metro ride. The hotel is right on the canal making for an interesting view and the exterior of the hotel is uniquely different. The rooms are typically Holiday Inn Express Europe. The front desk staff is excellent. The breakfast was very good and included. Our only complaint was noise. From our room you could hear partying all night long. Still, would stay here again but ask for a room facing a different direction.

Room Tip: Select a room away from the party areas.

Dear Jwkrengel,

Thank you for your review regarding your stay in our hotel. Your kind words are very honest and are very accurate about the hotel's situation in the city of Paris as well as the metro!

We do indeed have wonderful views of the canal, which we love, as this is an exception in Paris. Adding our excellent staff, you could only have excellent service and a relaxing time in our hotel when you are not busy visiting the city or going to your meetings at the company's that are near the hotel.

We are very sorry to hear about the problem with the noise. Please note that our staff and the Director's Office is aware of the situation and will do its best in order to ensure this does not occur for future guests.

Again thank you so much for your wonderful review and we do hope to welcome you in our hotel again. Please do not hesitate to send us a message if you do have your reservation set!

Kind Regards,
Daryl Cruz
