Excellent location (Gare du Nord), still quiet. Helpful staff. Ceiling corners could have been vacuumed more frequently. Hotel name is not displayed clearly.
Near the railway station Paris Nord and Paris Est, quiet street, good air-condition, tea pot on the room. Poor breakfast.
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 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.
The tranquillity of the hotel.
The hotel is very central and within short distance from Metro, would definitely stay again.
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.
Parisian style with value for money
Price small room,old furniture, not clean towels, old carpet. Room below average of his category.
short distance from railway station and very easy to find from the map provided
room quite small for a family.
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
the hotel is very central of the city and near by the metro and bus and trainstation
> 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
It was very close to the station and quiet easy for nearby shopping The Room is too small there is no space to move .
quiet misplaced my luggage, breakfast was to expensive for the empty baskets and plates. Didn't take breakfast the 2nd day.
Closeliness to the Gare de l'Est and other attractions. Especially the carpet could have been cleaner and the room a little bigger.
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.
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.
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.
Hotel Staff Unconfortable and old carpet.
the position is perfect when arring at Paris gare del est
Proximity to Gare d'Est Railway Sation where we were arriving. Not good part of town, esp at night.
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.
Very convenient location room is small
It is in centre, very convinent for travellers, Bathroom needs to maintain,specially room no-521.
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.
very close to train station
Close to Train Station Bathroom extremely poor
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
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.
overall okay + location expensive, but it is paris
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.
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.
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.
Location near Gare du Nord.
Good, easy handling at reception desk Bed blanket directly dirty, very little space
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;
close to the train station and metro, very well priced, very good breakfast,again reasonably priced....overall good value.
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.
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.
location and comfortable stay. Tea facility was missing in the room.
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.
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
Very cold. No proper duvet and no heating on the 6th floor. Shower is horrible.
We chose the hotel for its closeness to the Gare de L'Est station in Paris, you coudn't get a better location.
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
Staff is very helpful, location for travellers via Eurostar is nearly perfect, comfort is good.
Value for the location - more than acceptable room and bathroom for the price, staff efficient and professional, everything worked.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very close to metro lines -- poisonnaire station is about 3 minutes away. No stand up shower. Room was very compact, hardly any space apart from bed.
This was an incredibly well designed hotel, with all the charms of a french b&b but with the efficiency and attention of a boutique hotel.
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.
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...!
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)
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
location room too small
Convenient location very near the station
Close to Gare du Nord; Wireless Acess Price very high to qualitity. I paid the price of an Hilton and have an Hostel.
The easiness of reach The price : much too expensive for the size and facilities of the room
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.
Very clean and modern. Staff were great Rooms were tiny, walls were thin, location was a bit out of the way.
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.
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
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.
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 staff was very friendly, the room was clean with modern furniture the room was under the roof and far too small, a lot of dirt was in the gutter outside in front of the (small) window. breakfast was very average for the price
Close to a Metro Station. Clean. All facilities are new. Good Service. Breakfast Include!
Location, and very comfortable rooms
Very comfortable bed . . . had a window that opened to the outside . . . . very modern bathroom facilities.
proximity to Metro station
The location and design of the hotel. The room was very very small.
some noise(next room)
Friendly and helpful staff; clean room Quite small room
Beautiful clean room, free wifi and quiet considering how close it was to a main street. Didn't take breakfast as 15euros a bit expensive.
staff were very helpful and efficient
Location, clean room Breakfast not included, spartan furniture & bedlinen
nice outlook to park staff was unfriendly, room small and extremely hot, had to access stairs after getting off lift with heavy bags, no overhead shower - had to step in and out of bath, park noisy at night
Location only A lot:dirty, smelly and small rooms
Location TV channels
I liked the clean, modern and updated bathrooms; the location was good and the staff was helpful. No.
staff was excelent!! room smel/stack like cigarette smoke, noise from people in the park through out the night
I like the location of the hotel.It's quiet near the metro station, 15 min.walking distanse to Opera.The size of the room fnd bathroom is good for Paris. It would be nice to renovate the room and to decorate the walls.
Nice location, close to the metro and shopping. Walkable to some sites (Louvre) but quite far. Nice staff. Good rooms. Rude and slack cleaning staff. Had to ask reception for towels when they constantly didnt give us any
Friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location Bed was as hard as a rock and pillows so lumpy unable to sleep on them. Breakfast not really value for money. Very cramped and erratic shower.
Location, close to Opera and just few minutes from the metro station. The areas has got many shops and place to eat. Dirty... I found some hairs in the bath tub (it was obvious that the bath tub was not cleaned), bath room and on the bed sheet.... I don't know if the towels had been changed. Noises from the bus lane and a park in front of the hotel. Noises from the park lasted until after midnight and early morning, I was woken up by people yelling.
Position (between two station) Cleanliness Comfort Breakfast
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
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
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
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.
Location was very nice. Wifi was weak.
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
Not a luxurious hotel, but good value for money and convenient location
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 poor noise insulation, hear what is happening in a neighboring room and the corridor, it is difficult to fall asleep ... not have Wi-Fi...
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).
really friendly staff, good location
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.
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).
No Comment Not my Kind of Hotel and false advertising on the internet/
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.
A bit dark inside of the room, and the bathroom's airconditioner didn't properly work
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.
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.
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.
good location nice new bathroom suites friendly staff
good servide not so good facilities carpet of the bedroom was in bad condition, but they had uprated the on suite, which was nice.
Free internet access and breakfast were provided. Within walking distance to the train station.
It was very central. The staff could have been more welcoming. I found them rather stand-offish.
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.
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
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.
Clean, comfortable and convenient for Gare du Nord No complaints.
The room is nice and clean,breakfast very good...hotel near metro station 5 minutes by walk.Hotel staff kind and helpful.
