Absolutely fantastic hotel in Paris
Reviewed 27 September, 2021
We were blown away by this excellent hotel. We stayed in the hotel for 3 weeks because we did not want to take any risks by staying with our elderly family members. Full disclosure before you read on: we benefited from a long stay rate.
We absolutely LOVED IT.
The room are great: clean, comfortable, with big windows.
The staff is incredibly helpful. From giving us a tea kettle for our stay to helping me find my misplaced wedding ring we thought was stuck behind the headboard, they went above and beyond what we would have expected from hotel staff.
This hotel is also dog-friendly, a rare thing to find in Paris. Our dachshund was beloved and we really felt "at home" during this tumultuous time.
The location is ideal if you arrive in Paris by train. Gare du Nord is very central and you can be almost anywhere in Paris in 20 minutes or so. A lot of sights are 30 to 45 minutes walk maximum.
Having stayed there 3 weeks, we got to observe a lot of interactions with guests. Here's why we would stay here again without even evaluating another option:
- the rooms are spacious and have a distinct style.
- the staff is REALLY organized and courteous. You can go to the reception at 9AM or 2AM, there will be at least two people there to assist you.
- it's super convenient: we have seen some folks walk in after having train issues and be welcomes warmly.
- we have seen some folks be incredibly rude to the staff and yet, they were ALWAYS able to diffuse the situation.
- they speak perfect English and French.
- some senior train staff and airline staff use this hotel and these folks are experts at finding good lodgings.
- huge bonus for us: there is a co-working space you can use as a hotel guest.
Wonderful hotel in highly convenient location

This hotel is excellent. It’s location right opposite the Gare du Nord was highly convenient for Eurostar. Our room at the front directly faced the station and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony admiring its grand architecture - all that wonderful sculpture! Our room was very comfortable and the decor was interestingly quirky. Excellent and quiet air-conditioning too, so we slept very well. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The new manager was charming and enthusiastic - he permitted us to leave luggage there after checkout and to continue using the hotel facilities. We intend to return next time in Paris. It was a real treat!

Great hotel with really friendly staff. Fun, quirky rooms which make great use of space even in the smallest room.
Great location just seconds from the Eurostar
Only suggestion would be to install some international sockets and possibly to replace the light switches with something less confusing!
Marvellous Hotel, lovely staff

Due to a mountain of online bureaucracy in order to return to the uk via Eurostar we had to stay overnight in Paris. This hotel was recommended by a helpful staff member. What a find.. clean, comfortable very ECO friendly with a super restaurant. I couldn't find a fault. Lovely helpful staff on the desk and in the restaurant. I plan to return when less harassed. Highly recommended and opposite the station for an early train journey... Perfect.
Another solid 25hours property

While it may not be as entertaining as other 25hours properties, this one is certainly the most convenient, as it sits directly across from Gare du Nord. So if you have an early train departure or flight from CDG (via RER B), this hotel would be a logical choice. However, it doesn't have as many fun common spaces for the guests to simply hang out. While the hotel does feature a requisite Neni restaurant that serves sumptuous breakfasts and great dinners, and an adjacent plush hipster bar, it offers few additional amenities, such as lounges with comfortable sofas, or mini libraries for the guests to browse. But then again, you are, after all, in the middle of Paris, and the Metro is literally at your front door. It may be wrong to be wasting your time in a hotel, no matter how attractive or cozy it may be.
As expected, this establishment covers all the basics: cleanliness, competent housekeeping, helpful and friendly staff, adequate room temperature control, noise levels under control (at least from the 4th floor-- if you don't close your windows, be ready to be confronted by continuous honking taxi horns until 9.00pm), comfortable bed, good water pressure and water temperature controls in the bathroom, adequate toilet pressure, decent operable variable lighting schemes available in the rooms, enough electrical outlets to charge your piles of modern junk, and workable wi-fi. (Incidentally, we experienced a particular stomach flu that was plaguing the entire city during the time of our visit to Paris. The front desk staff was able to arrange for a good physician to visit and treat us in our room. This was much appreciated, and very necessary.) So ultimately, while this location may not knock your socks off, it is not a bad choice either, which is the case at all the 25hours we’ve stayed at so far.
