Price small room,old furniture, not clean towels, old carpet. Room below average of his category.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The spa room was unfinished and the ceiling had fallen through. Wires were hanging from the ceiling onto the wet spa room floor, Very dangerous. Rubble was left on the floor from the ceiling collapse which was very unhygienic and dangerous. We were bitten by bed bugs also. Disgusting.
short distance from railway station and very easy to find from the map provided
The hotel is very central and within short distance from Metro, would definitely stay again.
Parisian style with value for money
Paris Est Lafayette is a comfortable, good quality, reasonably priced, quiet and conveniently located hotel, only a five minutes walk from either the gare du Nord or the gare de l'Est. The rooms are equipped with a water kettle.
Excellent location (Gare du Nord), still quiet. Helpful staff. Ceiling corners could have been vacuumed more frequently. Hotel name is not displayed clearly.
There was no hot water on one of the mornings and the weather was freezing. Impossible to shower. Breakfast was simple, just bread and coffee. Room key cards were faulty. Lifts only reached till level 5 and had to climb stairs up to level 6
room quite small for a family.
Location for our needs Although our room was non smoking - it smelt of smoke and when we opened large windows there were piles of cigarett ends outside the window!
The tranquillity of the hotel.
Near the railway station Paris Nord and Paris Est, quiet street, good air-condition, tea pot on the room. Poor breakfast.
Near the rail way station The room price it's so expensive compare with the facilities that we received. But if the price is not the problems, I'll recomend to others traveller to stay in this hotel.
Proximity to Gare d'Est Railway Sation where we were arriving. Not good part of town, esp at night.
> Very convenient location to the Train Station and bus tours. > 30 min walking distance to the Pyramid/museum > Internet included > Reception is patient and very helpful > good restaurants within 5 min walking distance from hotel > Hotel is clean > I thought breakfast buffet -15 euro was expensive .. may be normal in Paris .. I brought my own cereal bars and took coffee outside
Closeliness to the Gare de l'Est and other attractions. Especially the carpet could have been cleaner and the room a little bigger.
It was very close to the station and quiet easy for nearby shopping The Room is too small there is no space to move .
Location was great, near lots of metro stations and close to everything. Easy walk to main train station that connects to Amsterdam. Comfortable, clean room. Our only issue was lots of noise (ppl on the streets) in the wee hours of the morning. If we stay again, we'll request a room not facing the train station. Very reasonably priced! We only stayed one night but were able to appreciate the courteous staff.
the hotel is very central of the city and near by the metro and bus and trainstation
Hotel Staff Unconfortable and old carpet.
quiet misplaced my luggage, breakfast was to expensive for the empty baskets and plates. Didn't take breakfast the 2nd day.
It was really cold in the bedroom, the heater didn't work properly.
It is not close to any of the tourist destinations. You had to take a cab or the metro to any of the sites. Our room was very small.
the position is perfect when arring at Paris gare del est
Its location across from Gare De Nord train & metro station as well as the convenient bus stops within proximity despite of the slightly rough yet safe neihborhood it is in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were spacious with a balcony overlooking the main street and the train station. Having many restuarants just outside the hotel was definetely a plus. We were extremely comfortable. N/A
overall okay + location expensive, but it is paris
Nothing Special, It was a normal hotel matching with the value paid. The internet is not free, The room was small as twin standard size, the room service was quite poor, the breakfast was not suitable for Muslim guests.
Comfort of my room (especially the bed - perfect support, guaranteeing full sleep at night; wonderful view over Sacré Coeur and silence from windows, despite station front). Closeness to station and transport connections.
how close it was to the station. the breakfast and the staff I booked a room for my self and husband and one for my children. The children were on a different floor from us and their room was much more spacious. After checking in the staff did offer to change our room but having taken credit card details etc it seemed too much of a nuicance.
Close to Train Station Bathroom extremely poor
Very convenient location room is small
very close to train station
Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Spoke excellent English too. Asked for and obtained very quiet room. Ideal. Opposite Gare du Nord No - all was fine, thank you.
Thank you for great advice on how to get to the airport, when to buy the ticket with no line, etc. Thank you for speaking French with me rather than assuming all Americans can only speak English.
Conveniently located across the street from gard nord and outside a metro station. Bars and restaurants close by. Comfortable bed. Amazing view of Sacre Coeur as our room was on the top floor. Wifi connection was good. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family. Water damage on the ceiling. Bathtub was a bit dirty. Remote control didn't work.
It is in centre, very convinent for travellers, Bathroom needs to maintain,specially room no-521.
Good, easy handling at reception desk Bed blanket directly dirty, very little space
Very cold. No proper duvet and no heating on the 6th floor. Shower is horrible.
The hotel was awful, the lacking basic facilities such as light and the electricity was cut off twice. THe staff were unhelpful during the 2 power cuts I disliked the whole experience
The breakfast was nice, quirky lift in the building, good location. The picture they advertised on the website was not the room we got when we arrived!! I would not have stayed at this hotel if i knew what our room was going to be like.
location and comfortable stay. Tea facility was missing in the room.
breakfast was good for French standards; availability of information about Paris/maps; location next to Gare du Nord; rooms were clean; possibility to pay by debit card (Maestro); quite noisy if you open the window (looking out on Boulevard Magenta); a sort of air freshener was used which was quite annoying;
The Avalon Hotel is located conveniently with a quick walk to Gare du Nord. The hotel staff was very friendly and stored our bags when when we arrived in Paris early.
Location near Gare du Nord.
close to the train station and metro, very well priced, very good breakfast,again reasonably priced....overall good value.
Nice breakfast, basic but good, good location. This is the second time that I chose to stay at this hotel for these two reasons. Wi-Fi did not work in the room. Floor and wall was quite thin, could hear people moving around in the corridor and staircase. Sometimes the TV did not have a connection. Depending on the time of the day, the shower was not hot enough for winter. Room was dimly lit.
Friendly staff, modest but nice breakfast buffet (good price/quality), clean room (although small, but that's Paris), very good location (very close to Gare de l'Est and a 5 min walk from Gare du Nord) Reservation was originally for a twin room and we got a double (we haven't made a complaint as it wasn't that important to us)
Location ideal for train and metro sations. Neat rooms and helpful staff. Very small balconies but gives a good view to the local street and station. Reception open till 1 am and can welcome guests almost 24 hrs. Breakfast may cost extra.
They allowed access to room early; small, but well designed hotel room - good for category; easily accessible Gare du Nord. Good experience. Would definitely stay there again if needed easy access for Eurostar. air conditioning was not good; warm during the night; lighting could be brighter.
Excellent location opposite the Gare de L'Est train station, clean comfortable rooms and very helpful staff. Deserves to be a three star hotel! Wished there had been tea/coffee making facilities in the room
Convenience to everything including transportation and daily needs. A very budget-wise hotel and location. Friendly and helpful staff. Secure area during our stay. Merci beaucoup! Not being able to speak enough French. Je me suis vraiment bien amuser (moi et ma femme). Paris was how you say C'est magnifique!? Your staff (Arnaud and Eric) were very helpful and understanding in that regard. My wife however did take a fall when decending the staircase to the lobby when we first arrived. She thought she had reached the main floor when the carpet run ended thus falling over the remaining steps of the marble staircase. Fortunately, she wasn't injured seriously and was helped by a relative who happened to have walked through the door as she was falling. I thought the staff could have responded to this situation a little better although they might have been busy or preccuppied with other concerns.
Value for the location - more than acceptable room and bathroom for the price, staff efficient and professional, everything worked.
The location is excellent, within easy walking distance from the Gare de l'Est, even closer to the Metro station, and next door to the Monoprix supermarket- very handy if you need to buy a mains adaptor at 2100h. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room comfortable, and the bathroom spacious and airy. Being English I would have welcomed tea-making facilities in the room, but being Paris, there are plenty of places nearby to get a drink.
Access to nearby stations Grimey streets; street noise as windows had to be left open so as to ensure adequate ventilation on two warm summer's evenings.
We chose the hotel for its closeness to the Gare de L'Est station in Paris, you coudn't get a better location.
Staff is very helpful, location for travellers via Eurostar is nearly perfect, comfort is good.
The easiness of reach The price : much too expensive for the size and facilities of the room
location room too small
Close to Gare du Nord; Wireless Acess Price very high to qualitity. I paid the price of an Hilton and have an Hostel.
Good location of hotel. Room was nice, but very small. Room wasn't clean, dust every where and a terrible smell. Propably not used for a long time
The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, location was easy to get to from the metro. Breakfast was 8 euros extra, room was rather small.
Location - close to Gare du Nord and Paris shops When showering water goes on floor- no screen.Breakfast 8euros should include hot dish, E.G., omelette or similar. (Lorette Opera breakfast for same price is much higher standard)
Great location - just a walk away from the Gare Du Nord as well as the Gare Du Est. Nice, smiling people at the front desk and clean, comfy rooms ! I stayed for 2 days and on both mornings had an early start - so didn't try the breakfast...the staff at the front desk charged me Euro.20 less ! Haven't seen that happen in too many European hotels ! I would come back here for sure ! Well..obviously the toilet could be a bit more bigger...!
Convenient location very near the station
The room was very good. The breakfast was not at all good. There was no good bread, there was no egg items, etc.You can add some more options to the breakfast menu.
Upon arrival we were met by an unfriendly, unhelpful man in reception. No Wifi in room. The location is not very good for tourists but is next to the Metro
Very clean and modern. Staff were great Rooms were tiny, walls were thin, location was a bit out of the way.
This is definitely a solid four star hotel. Extremely comfortable bed, nice room, friendly and well spoken front desk personnel including a major league hottie. I liked everything.
We had an executive room with 2 levels-bed on ground floor and bathroom on lower level. It had enough room for the bed and space to walk around the bed. Although it was small, but a decent size for Paris! The room and bathroom were very clean! Parking that was recommended was a no-go. Seemed to be inside a mechanic garage and supposed to leave keys! No thanks! We paid 40 euros a day for different garage.Location a bit far from center but metro stop right on corner.
The location. The front desk staff were very nice and informative. Our rooms weren't properly cleaned during our stay. One day the old towels were removed but new ones weren't replaced, and the glasses and cups we used weren't cleaned. the floor was never vacuumed in four days. The hotel did not seem like a four star
The location was very good because it was right next to the train station and the metro as well as a bus stop. not alot of power outlets
The staff were polite and helpful. The room was basic but good value for money for the central location.
Handy place to get a night's sleep before changing trains
Clean, comfortable and close to transport connections. Good Value in an expensive city. Rooms are a little small but htis is a budget hotel
Location was very nice. Wifi was weak.
Position (between two station) Cleanliness Comfort Breakfast
Not a luxurious hotel, but good value for money and convenient location
Very Good location, nice staff,well organised, easy checking and checkout The room was very smelly of humidity, no air conditioning, no vending machine in case someone needs a drink or aa sandwich late at night
Location poor noise insulation, hear what is happening in a neighboring room and the corridor, it is difficult to fall asleep ... not have Wi-Fi...
I like the room service. At first, I didn't expect that I will get a nice room service in everyday. I cannot use the heater when I feel cold. I ask the staff but they cannot also find the way to use heater.
Smoking room was given and the guy at the reception did not ask if i want non-smoking room. There are a lot of noises from neighbouring guests
Free wireless connection in rooms The location, small rooms, to expensive for what it offers
The area of the hotel was very bad. It was not safe.
hotel staff- very friendly, speak very good english, very helpfull. the walls are very thin- you can hear anything going on in other rooms.The bed wasn'r very comfortable.
Central Location, good hotel at cheaper rate. Slightly dodgy area.
1. One or two the hotel staff is extremely helpful, the rest couldn't speak enough English but seemed nice. 1. Some major prostitution streets lie between you and the tourist areas. I felt fairly safe, but uncomfortable. 2. Our room was extremely small, barely big enough to fit two twin beds. 3. The area of town feels kinda shady initially, but I got more comfortable as I went along 4. We listened to a loud buzz everynight that would cut on and off about 20 times in a row (each noise for 5 seconds). I think it had something to do with the air conditioner outside. 5. Internet costs 12 euro's an hour! Come on 6. It has a small tv with about 7 channels total (2 english speaking)
It was clean, had free internet, was close to Metro stations, restaurants and had a lift - although the smallest lift I had ever seen. Still it worked. The rooms were not sound-proofed and there was some noise from other guests.
the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with all our needs the area is located close to restaurants, and public transportation which was great. the elevator and the rooms were very small, had to put luggege in elevator and have friend walk up to 3rd floor to pick them up. and the rooms were tiny.
Cheapest Hotel in the area... Basic and Clean... Good for a quick trip, but not a three star Hotel... Very basic... I don't understand how it is awarded a three star rating...
Stuff was ok, bed was comfortable, shower was working properly, hot water all the time, well positioned very near gare du nord and that made easy coming from charles de gaulle airport because i did not need to go into metro with suitcasses. poissoniere metro station a few steps away will take you diretctly to louvre and centre. room in the basement with no daylight at all, so next time i will ask for the room in the floor. recommend for budget travelers with no luxury needs.
Friendly, helpful staff. Very good breakfast (for Parisian standards). The room was very clean. Nice neighborhood, lot's of restaurants nearby. Good value for your money. The room was a bit small. The bathroom was small, and not practical (loose shower head and wobbly shower screen).
The location was great, there was a lot of restaurants around. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. They even have a lift.
No Comment Not my Kind of Hotel and false advertising on the internet/
A bit dark inside of the room, and the bathroom's airconditioner didn't properly work
really friendly staff, good location
Very conveniently located near to Gare du Nord, and the Metro system. The reception staff (especially the female) were extremely pleasant and helpful. Very small TV in bedroom, and we would have liked to have at least one TV chanel in English. There was no shower curtain. There was a tremendous amount of traffic noise - Air conditioning would have been much appreciated, so we could then have kept the windows shut.
Nice staff. They did not hesitate to give me a double room the first night because there was something wrong in mine. Helpful, understanding and nice staff. Clean and comfortable room. Non.
Cleaniness of the room, nice staff. Good location. no cold water in washer in suit, not repaired during out stay ( 4 nights).
The staff is friendly. The cleanliness is not good in the bathroom. There are hair in the walls (not mine) and the sit cover of sanitary vase was dirty.
Clean, comfortable and convenient for Gare du Nord No complaints.
Location to the Gare Du Nort Railway Station and Metro Stations. Very friendly and helpful english speaking staff Our bathroom had a slight smell to it and the shower water was very slow to run away
Proximity to Gare du Nord, quiet location, friendly staff, and decor. Bathroom sink and computer were broken. In the past that has never been a problem -- I am not sure what happened.
Free internet access and breakfast were provided. Within walking distance to the train station.
good location nice new bathroom suites friendly staff
The room is nice and clean,breakfast very good...hotel near metro station 5 minutes by walk.Hotel staff kind and helpful.
It was very close to the subway and train station which made it easy to get around.
Good spacious shower room Hotel undergoing refurb, but even so, corridor carpet was disgusting.
It was very central. The staff could have been more welcoming. I found them rather stand-offish.
Only the bathroom Everything was bad .from the reception to the room. Service was bad,staff not friendly & not helpful especially we have 2 kids with us.NOT Value for money at all.
good servide not so good facilities carpet of the bedroom was in bad condition, but they had uprated the on suite, which was nice.
Good location The room , although clean, was rather dingy and overdue for re decoration.
placement in the city small room
Can't say anything good! Shower - too awkward and small. Unfriendly staff. No customer service - I left early before breakfast to get the train - no discount offered, not even a piece of bread. Far too expensive (85 euros).
a fair price and not far from the station/ parking facilities
Comfortable, clean, and close to metro. Staff was courteous, helpful, and friendly. People loudly congregating and smoking in front of building literally all night.
Room 302 of my colleaqe was infested with Punaises; (Wanzen;Cimici)
the shower wasn't working properly
The staff. They were very kind. The corners of the room were dirty and the toilet had large stains inside. Other than that, the room was comfortable.
People in the neighborhood are very loud at night
nothing about this hotel was even close to good, complaints have been officially made. there is so much to go on here, its a building site which should come with a hard hat when booking, the reception has cement and bath tubs in it, the room had a coat hanger holding up the shower, the flooring was broken and there was no towels, the breakfast was beyond basic, a stale bread stick with stewed coffee or tea, the walls in the room 507 where damp with mould and like i say the list is endless and an official complaint has been made!
Good location, reasonable price. room was small and quite dark. Some confusion at check in.
Having one family room. The bathroom was horrible.... the smell of mold was so strong we could not stay in there for long. We could not bathe due to this strong smell.
Easy access from Gare du Nord. A good night view from the top floor and an enjoyable breakfast for all the family. Some nighttime outside noise
Location. Friendly and efficient reception; cleanliness; daily room service; ample [very] hot water in the bathroom. Most rooms are inwards facing at the back - hence no outlook, but very quiet. Guests generally well-mannered. Price! Building and minimal furniture generally in a tired and well-worn condition. Very limited communal sitting area in the reception. Breakfast area too small for the large number of guests - resulting in some queuing [but not too bad]
I liked the staff and the place - it is really 1 minute walking from the metro station Gare de l'Est
Very good placed, close too many areas and many metro lines. Breakfast is not good. Yes at Paris hotel's, generally, this is an issue but in here it is worst.
very handy to the metro and close to most tourist spots.
the amiot is well located with the metro station virtually outside. A bit 70's inside but clean and comfortable. we had a quadrouple room which was in the attic on the 6th floor. lift only goes up to the 5th floor. we had an excelllent view which took in both the eiffel tour and the sacre couer. room service available but not before 7am so on our last morning we could not have a drink in the room before our trip to the airport we did however get one just before we left but downstairs in reception. we would stay there again. we did not like the lift which is very tiny and a bit noisey! the stairs up to 6th floor were on a slant but we saw the funny side of this and felt it added to the charm of the hotel. it was good value for money.
Very helpful and friendly staff. A great location very well connected. Comfortable and adequate facilties. No kettle, and no bath.
For our one night in Paris the location was great, the hotel was just what we needed. A clean room with breakfast included, quiet considering the location!
Location was great, wi fi was working fine, cleaning was active till late One night the reception person was rude without a reason. Breakfast can be improved as well as blankets.
For me,Location and staff are good point of this hotel.This hotel located really near the train station.I used Eurostar,and from my station(Gare du Nord front)to this hotel is only 6~8min walk.And it's really easy to find.And bus station(to CDG airport) is just front of this hotel!! That's amazing for me.And,staffs of this hotel were really really helpful!So kind and frendly and really helpful!!!That two things,"location" and "staffs"are good thing for me.
It is close to RER, Metro other public transportation. Good point for city tour.
situation near Gare de Nord wifi is not working
nothing! it was the most awful hotel where I stayed: dirty walls, small rooms, very bad bathroom with old and dirty equipment for very high price. Never recommend this hotel!!! close the hotel or totally renew it
location to train station It was old, poorly decorated, mold in the bathroom and very noisy. The neighborhood was scary.
At least it was clean More lie a student bedsit
There is nothing particularly impressive about the hotel. We don't really like the neighborhood and at feel safe at night.
Hotel staff spoke good English and were friendly. The beds are comfortable. There was a lot of street noise and noise from other hotel guests in the middle of the night. The beds had worn out blankets. They could be replaced by duvets.
Warm,clean room, price Constant whistle from the central heating
The staff were very helpful. Water flowing down wall from peoples shower in room above.very dusty,they obv have no vaccum.its a gd hotel for roughin it
i do't recommend any one to stay in this hotel...& its v expensive for its quality....i took the room for rate of 90 euro...but really 10 euro at max.really low quality hotel...even it was v cold outside..& they didnt operate the heating system....they said after 5 days we will start heating, bad smell for bed...all over very low quality hotel
Close to Gare Du Nord Main Train Station in Paris and free internet The Bath
The hotel is located very conveniently, opposite Railway station, Subway and many restaurants around. Bathroom/shower is old, but steamy hot water and good pressure. Have experienced less performance in more expensive Paris hotels. Free channel with "nature movies".... Tiny elevator, holds only 1 person with samsonite. You have to queue if you don't want to drag your suitcase up to 5th or 6th floor.
Near the station nice staff
Near to train station Very helpful manager
Promity to train station right opposite
Friendly, good location The room smelt of cigarettes, presumably from previous guests...
The hotel room was nice and spacious and the people at the reception were pleasant and ready to offer advice. Since the hotel is just opposite Gare du Nord, I could quickly leave my baggage and visit the city. The only problem is that I got a room next to the lift and the lift door bangs. Or maybe its the room doors which can only close with a bang when one exits. So, after midnight sleep becomes a problem. Since I had the misfortune to get a room next to the lift in Brussels just before, I felt I had made up for all these years when I never had to suffer this.
Stayed for 1 night because of good location (close to railway/subway). Clean room, comfortable bed.
It's very close to the Gard du Nord for Eurostar, RER and the metro.
Friendly, bilingual staff. Great location, less that 5 mins walk to Gare de Nord, which gives you access to the entire city. Also a number of great places to eat in the surrounding streets. Also has mid day checkout if you need time to rest.
Location is good, staff friendly, all is acceptable for the given price, except below, which are very important Very important ; carpets extremely dirty (both in room and corridors) this is not acceptable, walls dirty - this is also not acceptable, matresses have springs feeling on your body. Simpler details ; no shower hanging hook, no soap shelf on shower.
