Very convenient location for those travelling from Gare du Nord.
Nothing it was a very small room with no connection to internet (although it was sold as such) very noisy
Not a succes and below the standard - it's not worth the money
Overall we are happy with the hotel, very close to Paris Nord and we were not disturbed by the traffic in our room. French breakfasts are normally poor, but here it was ok. The coffee in the machine at breakfast was bad, but luckily the service people made very good strong coffee in thermos..
Dirty carpet in the room. Elevator very small. WiFi did not seem to reach 2nd floor, but we found other free network.
Convenient location, near Gare du Nord; tired room with dirty carpet; breakfast just about okay
Bedrooms & bathrooms were clean & tidy. The breakfast was pleasant.
The lifts were very small and did not work on arrival
Never ever go to avalon during summer no a/c or electric fan at all it's a waste of money
No a/c and the food is crap
friendly staff, nice breakfast, excellent location, decent room
Good location, bus station in front of hotel, metro Gare du Nord 5 min. Walk, very good breakfast, clean room, no noise in the evening it is very good for sleep, recommend to all..
The location was perfect; breakfast was included in the price; breakfast offered plenty of choice. The room was spacious and the bathroom clean and also spacious. There was adequate linen in the bathroom. The facilities we needed were available: safe, baggage storage for the day of departure. The building has character and Parisian charm. Thank you!
The street brawl in the small hours of the morning was probably a downside of the location.
Hotel clean, friendly staff, and the breakfast was very good. Very near the Gare du Nord so very good for sightseeing
Located in a very convenient location, and provided with free wi-fi and breakfast.
Near the local train station (Gare du Nord) - 5 min walk and international train station (Gare de l'est) - 20 min walk..breakfast (I like the croissonts and cheese they have served)..bathroom is clean..
Crowded location (environment is uncomfortable), room and bed are too small for 2 persons (but enough for single occupancy), not enough lighting (too dark)..I have no good (first) impression because of the unfriendly reception but the night reception is more friendly..unsafe luggage room (suggestion: dont forget to lock your lugage if you want to left it there.. small elevator (max.3 persons without lugage)..
The location was great, so close to the Metro Gare de l'est. Has some local shopping, great restaurants and a mini market that is open quite late.
Generally the room was clean but there was some stains on the flooring and bedspread and dust bunnies up on the top of the draperies..but nothing we couldn't handle.
The hotel was right near the train station, which is why I chose the hotel - we had an early train out the next morning. The breakfast buffet was great, far more substantial than I anticipated and better selection than most European hotels.
There was some train / street noise, but we anticipated that and it was the tradeoff for being so close to he train.
Location very good, near Montmarte and Moulin Rouge...Good hotel for short time visit in Paris.Good communication point with other parts of Paris.
