Stayed here for one night after watching the final of the tour de france in Paris. You can access the hotel from the underground car park opposite the train station. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the train station where the TGV will get you to Paris in 50 mins.
The hotel is modern and clean. Reception staff are friendly. We paid £60 for a twin room with breakfast. The room has a double and a single bed, so would be good as a family room. I asked and was told that kids would stay free.
The room was clean and comfortable with free wifi (rare in France). The only English TV channel is the news. The only bad point as the shower. The tap is a bit misleading, it indicates a right turn for cold, when this in fact gives you hot water. I got a bit scolded!
Had a good sleep and an excellent buffet breakfast. Only an hour from the euro tunnel, so a great place to visit the war sights, a great base to get to Paris for a day trip, or nice to visit the Xmas market, or the Arras music festival. It is a short walk into town.
To sum up, a great bargain hotel.
