Cafe Hotel de l'Avenir
Ranked #1 of 1 Saint Ouen B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2013

After 30 hours travel, we appreciated the warm welcome from Amahl, and his helpfulness. Our 3rd floor en-suite room (steep stairs!) was clean and comfortable, overlooking a neighbourhood park and the local church. We enjoyed a traditional breakfast each morning, and dined at the hotel cafe on three occasions. The staff were always friendly, and in spite of little English being spoken, we managed to communicate without too much difficulty. Being greeted with handshakes and a warm "Bonjour!" each morning was a delight. The location across the road from Garibaldi Metro station provides easy access to all parts of the city.

Room Tip: Request ensuite ...just a few rooms have this.

El hotel está situado a las a fueras de París, pero no conlleva ningún problema, ya que justo en frente, 20 metros hay una parada de Metro, Linea 13, en 10-15 minutos te encuentras el Los Campos Elisios. El barrio es un poco oscuro, parece ser un barrio de gente trabajadora y inmigrantes, pero si ningún problema. Además, si se tiene previsto visitar París, prácticamente no estás en el Barrio, nosotros solo pisamos el paso de cebra que separa el hotel del metro.

Es un hotel sin recepción, es un Bar, Restaurante, Pub con habitaciones encima. Llegamos, nos ofrecieron de beber gratuitamente y nos subieron las maletas a la habitación; el personal muy muy amable, cada día al llegar al hotel, nos preguntaban si había algún problema, si nos gustaba París... muy bien. El hotel no dispone de ascensor, nosotros estábamos en el tercer y último piso, pero las escaleras no son duras de subir. Por lo que se refiere al bar, durante el día sirven comidas, hay menú de comida y cena todos los días a un precio de 11 o 13 euros, con 2 platos y postre o café, muchísimo más económico que cualquier restaurante del centro de París. (Café con leche 2.5 € al centro 4-5€, Creme brulé 3.5 € al centro 7-10€). Por la noche había música para gente joven, en ningún caso se oía desde las habitaciones.

Por lo que se refiere a las habitaciones, son pequeñas, pero nuevas y bien decoradas, creo que se hicieron en el 2012; son muy acogedoras. Disponen de un pequeño lavabo con ducha y aseo, no tienen wc, este es común en cada planta. Tanto los pasillos como el wc estaban muy limpios, y no había cola.

Esto es común en París, para estancias más largas de 3 noches, solo limpian la habitación, y cambian sabanas una vez por semana. En este hotel pasa lo mismo. Cuando nos fuimos, nos ofrecieron guardar las maletas en el hotel.

Sin duda después de buscar muchos hoteles en París, creo que hicimos una elección genial para visitar la ciudad, y si volvemos, no dudaremos en volver a ir al l'Avenir!!

Dear all,

the hotel is 10-15 minutes away to the Champes elysses with metro. The metro station is near to the hotel, at 20 meters, only crossing the street. Is on neighborhood workers, there are some inmigration. But is not a problem, because if you want to visit París, you will stay in this zone only to sleep.

The hotel hasn't reception, is a bar-restaurant-pub with rooms. When we arrived the employees offered us something to drink, and brought the baggage to the room. The employees were very friendly, every day ask to us if there were any problem, and if we was liking our visit to Paris. The hotel hadn't elevator, we was on the third floor (the last) and the stairs wasn't to much heavy to up or down. During the day, the hotel was a Bar and a Restaurant, with a Menu every day very cheap, 13 € two plates and or coffe or desert. Other prices was cheapers than the center in Paris. At the night there was music, but it couldn't listen it from the rooms.

The rooms was small, but news and with a great decoraton, very confortable. There was a shower and to clean the face and hands, there wasn't wc, it was shared, one in every floor. It was clean.

the clean service if you stay more than 3 nights is one in the week, it is usual in Paris. Last day the hotel offererd us to keep our baggage in the hotel.

without any doubt after we search a lot hotels, i believe we made great decision, and if we will visit again Paris we acommodate another time in Avenir Hotel!!

Really there is nothing negative to say about Cafe Hotel de l'Avenir. Even the location, which is a little bit outside of city center is not a problem, since this hotel is located right in front of the metro station. Also, Monmartre is very close. Stuff was very friendly, bed was comfortable, room was very clean and everything looked like brand new. There was a bathroom in our room, and shared toilet in the hall. However, there was no crowd, so miss-location of the toilet wasn't a problem. Finally, the price is more than cheap, giving all the aforementioned reasons. Lovely place to stay!

lovely place with "garibaldi" metro opposite makes the commute into paris easy and quick. Staff extremely friendly and rooms although not large a good size. Shared toilet which we did not find a problem as we were not in the hotel for long and it was always kept clean. Given a complimentary drink and helped with luggage. Free wifi. We had a couple of evening meals there which was really nice - do 3 courses for 11 or 13 euro. Concern was regarding smoking, there was an ash tray within our room and one morning we could smell smoke which came from another room, also had a cigarette burn on the duvet. The hotel was clean and room tidied each day. felt staff did go the extra mile, I believe its a family business. had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend it!

I don't speak French, so it was comforting to arrive and be able to communicate a bit with the hotel check in. They were very friendly and offered to buy me a drink as soon as I put my things down. They also gave me a double room without extra charge, so I had my own toilet and shower. It was a very tidy room, and the location is just off the M13 line which is great. The only issue I had was that they allow smoking in the hotel, and I could often smell the smoke which would wake me up. Other than that, great hotel!

Room Tip: Smoking is allowed in the hotel, so be careful if you don't like smoke!

This little gem is brilliant! You arrive and your welcome drink of your choice is at the bar waiting! They carry your luggage up stairs so you dont have to. There are 4 floors and everything has been refurbished recently. The rooms are great size with tv, nice windows, really warm room,shower and such a comfy bed!! The service is quick and polite with good french simple food!! We really had lovely a meal and good breakfasts! Good french bread!
The establishment is run by a family of brothers and the house maid goes out of her way to clean and tidy! Better than 5* hotel cleaners!!
Its in good neighbourhood right next to metro. You must get familiar with the metro system for you to have good transport links. But the area has a mc donalds for ease if you looking for a late snack or there are 24 hour shops near by. There are markets every other day and a supermarket very close by.
We had freedom to come and go as we please, the bar/cafe is open everyday from 5am till 12am and free wifi to top it off.
As you can see we cant rate this place enough. The whole stay was soo good and for the price its really worth it! We are going back this year because they made our holiday experiance great! Highly recomended!!
