Just returned from 5 night stay to Paris.What i was looking for was a clean,good located,budget hotel.I chose Hotel du Nord after reasearching in TA.
In order to book this hotel you have to either call or send an e-mail.
It's a small hotel with 4 kinds of rooms.Room for 1-2 people,room for 2,room for 3 and family room.
What i loved about Hotel du Nord :
-Proximity to 2 different metro station.Republique station which is served by 4 lines and Jacques Bonsergent station with 1 line.My advise : if you arrive on train and have bags,choose Jacques Bonsergent station.It's closer and simpler.
-Decoration and the feel of living in a house.It has something special that you won't find in a big chainy hotel.There are books in the lobby area that you can read and there are even books in the rooms!
-Friendly staff.People who can give great advice and share secrets of Paris.
-Clean!!! What more important when being away?
-Great bed!A good sleep is all you need after a full day in Paris.
What i didn't love :
-Room was quite small,however Paris is not famous for having big hotel rooms.(maybe in 4 or 5 star properties there will be big).
-Republique area is not that lovely.There are other nicer areas in Paris.However,it's not packed with tourists and there are many restaurants and fast food places.
-There was only one socket in the room which didn't help.
I really liked Hotel du Nord and i would go back in a next visit to Paris.It's a great value for money!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hotel is a small one with 23 rooms that are warm, cozy and attractively decorated. When our guests arrive, we give them a key to the entrance door to the hotel as well as a room key. Right away everyone feels at home or rather, in a guesthouse. Our rooms are all different, each one has its own style: Oriental, pop, empire, Pompei, and so on.... We take particular care with the breakfast, served in the basement with its old-fashioned stone ceiling. Our breakfast consists in croissants, the traditional baguette and whole-grain bread, made not by an industrial bakery but by our local baker. The jams are homemade, prepared by us using quality fruits. All the products we use are chosen and furnished by local shops. Our guesthouse is located in a central district animated by its residents. It is a popular district for Parisians that is famous for its picnics along the Canal Saint-Martin, its bars, its restaurants and small local shops. All around you will find many Parisian brands, boutiques, bookstores, and food stores. We have selected them and tested them before recommending them. For getting around in Paris we have bicycles that are freely available during your stay. This is also part of our approach. Whatever the reason for your visit to Paris, we hope you will appreciate the atmosphere of our guesthouse. ... more less
