Nice hotel in a pretty new building right next to a little canal. Rooms are clean and functional, the breakfast covers the basics and there's a parking garage if needed. That being said, it didn't get me excited for some smaller but still noteworthy reasons: there was no power outlet next to the beds in my room (which is annoying...

A nice, basic, clean room with everything you'd expect. The area isn't necessarily the nicest (as you approach) but you might be lucky enough to have a nice view of the canal (as we did.) The staff were polite and friendly (and spoke English.) The breakfast was fine, and included in the price.

Great little location with restaurants and bars along the quayside, very close to the metro(5 minute walk) and professional staff. We were staying for The Paris Half Marathon which wasn't massively nearby but worked well for us, given the metro, restaurants and shops nearby and easy access to the RER at Gare de Nord.

I have traveled around the world and have been to over a thousand hotels. As a frequent traveler and a frugal one you realize what hotel managers really care and the ones that don't. This hotel is not in the best neighborhood or in the center of Paris but it's safe, affordable and close to many metro stations. The staff...

The hotel is only a short walk from the metro Riquet. The friendly staff greeted us warmly and the room was very clean. We had a charming view of the Seine from our window, which we loved! Breakfast was very good with an assortment of croissants, baguettes, cheeses, salamis, scrambled eggs, sausages, cereals - and the coffee was wonderful. I...

Very good hotel for a short city trip right between Paris-Nord (trainstation) and the cultural zone around the "Philarmonie". Bed, room, breakfast, TV, ... everything as I expected. Free safe, on demand next to the reception. And last but not least: I especially liked the staff's profesionnality and friendliness. Good job!

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
