Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DD1113 Wonderful hotel and staff
This lovely hotel is across the street from Gare de l est which was the historic start of the Orient Express. Just cross the street and catch the Metro to any of the amazing places in this beautiful city. I was amazed how quiet the room was with all the activity in the street outside. It was comfortable and pleasant.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Especially Awa. She is the best.
We will definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4fevrier A convenient hotel right across from Paris Gare de l'Est train station
We were in Paris for a holiday. Arriving with TGV from Strasbourg, this hotel was very convenient since it's right across from the train station. It is also relatively convenient to walk around the up and coming neighbourhood of Canal St-Martin with its hip cafes and bars.
The hotel was undergoing renovation when we were there, so we managed to get a very good rate for Paris. We were given a newly renovated room. it's quite small, which is to be expected in Paris, but the nice surprise was the spacious bathroom that has glass doors opening to an inner balcony (good for smokers, not much of a view).
Reception was not the most pleasant, even for Parisian standard and the reception area is a bit drab. I'm assuming it will get renovated also eventually.
All in all, a good stay. Would consider staying again if coming from by TGV from the east.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TCUFAN Staff made visit worthwhile!
Yes there is construction and renovation going on outside the hotel at this time. But our room had renovations recently completed and it was worth it. Great location – nothing wrong with the neighborhood – and metro and rail are directly outside front door. But most importantly, the staff was the most friendly and helpful to a nervous traveler that I have ever encountered on a trip to Paris. English was spoken adequately to excellent by all staff that we talked to and they were all very helpful to us no matter what the time of day (or night) we stopped by the front desk. The staff really made the stay worthwhile. I recommend this hotel to other travelers.
