Kyriad Paris Sud - Porte d'Ivry
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Ivry-sur-Seine
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Stayed at Kyriad Porte d'Ivry for one night during a business trip in November 2011. Needed to pick this one because it is usually tough to get a room in Paris, and this trip was especially short noticed. The room rate was 130€ without breakfast (discounted company rate) for a room of approx. 10m². That is definitely expensive, but then again it is Paris which is known for being overpriced.

The location of the hotel is, uhm, quite urban and well connected regarding traffic, with one of the major motorways (Boulevard Périphérique) passing by the hotel - but it something like 13th arrondissement, so still some way to the "heart of Paris" (Tour Eiffel, etc.).

I checked in late (10pm) and was told that the hotel staff could not cater for any food anymore since the restaurant would close soon. A bottled beer was still possible, but you could feel the staff's general annoyance about clients and their calls for service.
The room itself was on a higher floor (4th?), was rather clean with a great view of the motorway and noisy ventilation. Windows were well noise insulated so that you could find sleep despite of the traffic outside.

Overall, this place provides a shelter for the night in case you really need one.
If you come for business and this would be your only option to stay, consider flying in and out on the same day - might be the better AND cheaper option.

Located in 13th arrondissement, this hotel is on a major highway and not near the city center. BUT, on other side of highway is huge "China Town" area with excellent cafes and stores/markets. Near the hotel is a charming neighborhood area with historic windmill that has recently been improved with fountains and outdoor seating. Metro lines are about 5 min. walk and you are in city center in 15 min. As with any hotel I've visited in France, the staff can't be called charming. However, all were helpful and the property is well managed. They seem to do a lot of business with large groups. There is a bar and a breakfast area. Rooms were decent and clean. We paid about 25% of the price of hotels in city center, so consider this property an excellent value.

Overall, this hotel was nothing special, I came with a large group of people and they all felt the same. The surroundings of the hotel was like a building site and there was pollution everywhere I looked. It took ages to be told which room we were in which I found rude, especially when they knew we had a 7 hour coach journey to get there. When we finally got to our rooms, in every bathroom the shower was covered in hairs, which is extremely disgusting as I'm sure most people will agree. At night, the receptionists would constantly complain about the noise we were making, even when we were just walking across the corridor. On the second night, people who we didn't know that were clearly overly drunk, we're shouting along the corridor and knocking on all of our doors and then when we complained they didn't believe us. The meat in the hotel's resturant was pink, and 2 of the people I was there with got food poisoning, also most of the food was cold. There were a few nice things about the hotel aswell, like the staff in the hotels restaurant were absolutely lovely! The man that served us was making jokes and checking every now and again if we were ok, and the food came as quick as a flash. Other than the hairs in the room, the hotel was quite clean, the rooms were cramped but acceptable, but I probably wouldn't stay there again and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

We use this hotel every time we travel for work - brining senior high school students to Europe conducting site studies for History. The appointments are very good and the value for money is excellent. Breakfast is great and the location close to the Metro is very convenient. Local restaurants (good variety) just around the corner also make this a very good place to stay with groups.

The hotel's receptionists were EXTREMELY helpful and accommodating. Upon my arrival I had to change the number of nights I would stay at the hotel, and the staff was very helpful and patient with me!!
The location is not bad: about 15 minutes on the metro from the center and about 10 minute walk from station to the hotel. I was alone and did not go out during night time, but the area felt pretty safe during the day.
The room was clean and nice.

We ( 2 females) stayed here for 2 nights. Upon arrival we got a free map of paris, and there was a small waterboiler in the room with free tea and coffee - decaf though :-) , and a small bottle of water. And even more cheers: free wifi in the room! The room (419) was comfortable and warm, clean, as were the sheets and pillows. Staff was okay, only spoke to them for check-in and out.

Porte d'Ivry metro is a short 5 min walk, we preferred the Olympiade metro (10-15 min walk) because it is cleaner and the ride is shorter. Never felt unsafe, not even at night. People in this neighbourhood aren't rich but that doesn't mean they will mug you. ( I read some of the other reviews..)

We enjoyed our stay here, the only negative thing is that you cannot take hot shower after 16.00 h, the water isn't warm enough anymore.

Stayed just one night but was an excellent deal...just 55Euros! Around 15mins walk from Porte D'Ivry metro station and quite a deserted route to walk at night with family. Free Wifi and excellent rooms. Breakfast was also very good. Would definitely stay there on a repeat visit.
