Stayed there for two nights in August with two teenagers. The hotel is ideally located to visit Paris, the area safe, pleasant and one street away from local shops and metro.
The hotel itself is spacious and clean, with good facilities and the staff provide...More

We stayed for 3 days toward the end of March 2018. The location was a bit out of the way. But it was the most economical hotel for us. The hotel was in a residential neighborhood with apartments, bistrots, cafés. You could tell this was...More
We used our IHG points to book this hotel in the summer months , high tourist season and were not disappointed.
It is a nice HI Express on a great canal and area. The breakfast was typical but French and free so it was a...More
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.

I would call the hotel and ask. If they do not provide this service, it is a short distance from Gare du Nord to the hotel, so it should not be expensive. Instead of walking out the front of the Gare, looking for a taxi, follow the signs inside to the taxi stand, which is on the side. This is where they line up to receive travelers and there is someone employed for the purpose to direct you to the next cab. This may not be a guarantee of protection from overcharging, but the valet on duty should be a caution to those who queue up to get riders. I have gotten taxis here and never felt overcharged or that anyone tried to take advantage of me. I have noticed in the last 2 years that cabs now usually have some kind of GPS on the dashboard that has a map telling the driver where to go and how to get there, so that may allay fears. Also, remember that what might seem to be an easy trip as the crow flies may take longer because of one-way streets.
It's only a few kilometers to the Gare du Nord. You can walk to either the Stalingrad or Laumiere metro stations and take a direct metro line (Number 5). It would be about a 10 minute walk and a 10 minute metro ride, I... More
It's only a few kilometers to the Gare du Nord. You can walk to either the Stalingrad or Laumiere metro stations and take a direct metro line (Number 5). It would be about a 10 minute walk and a 10 minute metro ride, I believe. But with kids it might be easier to take a taxi. The hotel will be glad to line one up for you if you request it. Even though the Gare du Nord is not far, give yourself plenty of time - you never know with Paris traffic.
