Stayed 6 nights so we could do the sights of Paris. Hotel is close to metro lines, which makes it easy to get around. Champs Elysees back to hotel in 35 minutes by metro. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Usual continental breakfast. Eateries and some fast food reasonably close by. Room size was adequate. Does the job.

Room tip: Get a room on the higher floors overlooking the canal.

They will make sure that actions will be taken to improve our services and accommodations.

Great location, near two Metro lines (walking distance).
right on a nice canal that was small boat rides, and amusements for the children, zip line, carousel. We had 3 in a room and the lay out worked where we were not on top of each other, was a little alcove.
Not enough overhead light for reading.

On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff. Who even said Happy Birthday. The gave me a large room over looking the canal. The room was big and clean but very basic. Also the room had a large patio window that didn’t open. The other window opened a few millimetres. Although it looked out onto the canal there were steel strips that enclosed the whole building so it was not a great view.
The breakfast was disappointing and a limited choice.
The staff were lovely and very friendly.
The hotel was a bit far from Paris centre, but it was only a short walk to station.

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel. Our room although functional was clean and spacious. If you are looking for a basic no trimmings clean hotel then consider this hotel. Breakfast was continental and basic. The location is right next to a large recreational area on the Villette Canal which has some dodgy areas which are away from the hotel. There was security around and we felt safe. The hotel staff were helpful and for a 1 night stay it was adequate. If your budget doesn't stretch to a 4 or 5 star hotel in Paris, then we would recommend this one be considered.

A comfortable quiet hotel right on the bank of the Canal. Spacious room with a most double bed with a choice of pillows. Large bath room with separate toilet. Room has very good aircon plus tea/coffee making facilities. It is a eco friendly hotel but the quality of the room lights leaves you a bit in the dark! Very pleasant and helpful staff. Good reliable high speed WiFi. A decent continental breakfast is available at a good rate ~ hot dishes are at extra cost. Surprisingly there is no bar fridge.
