Breakfast was cold and most mornings there was no juice or coffee mugs. Always check your bill as they over charged us.
Staff are lovely

Arrived in hotel after a long day of traveling to Paris, finding that my room AC was not working. Informed the staff, staff came in and said they "fixed" it. So I left the room because I thought it will take some time to run. Toured Paris, had dinner, came back to my room after a hot day in Paris, and my AC was still not working. Informed the staff, and they said they can't fix it and no compensation for it. All they said was they will inform the supervisor. Meanwhile I slept in a hot room in Paris (or shall I say "tried to sleep." Other than that, the location of the hotel is great, just right outside the train station. In fact there's even an entry to the train, literally on the sidewalk of the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Touta21 Best Place in Gare de L'Est
Best location , the underground is just outside the hotel where you can reach anywhere in Paris. The overall of the hotel is OK. Staff are very helpful.The hotel is very clean. Very convenient for people traveling with the train from Gare de L'est.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stephen09 Nice place with friendly and professional staff
I always stay at this hotel for my business trips in Paris. It's very convenient as it is just in front of Gare de l'Est and a Metro station. You can find easily few good restaurants in Rue des Recollets which is few mn walk (don't try the ones next or close to the hotel...)
Most of the staff is friendly and professional.
It is missing a fitness room...
the turn over is too high and the new staff doesn't know how to deal with platinum members. I've asked before my arrival to be in a quiet room and she put me in the worst one which is in front of the elevator...
During my last stay(27/28th may) i had to wait about 25mn !!! to check out, this is too long ! That was because of a lack of staff and an inexperienced staff as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LeoJb Good location & good value
For me & my wife, we would say that our short stay in Holiday Inn Paris Gare De L'est was quite good, we stayed here 2 nights for our short holiday trip in Paris. This hotel is located just across Gare De L'est train station (walking distance from Gare du Nord train station). So it is easy to reach if you will be traveling from other cities/countries outside Paris by train. The Metro station is exactly in front of the hotel, and since the Metro service operates till late midnight making the location of this hotel is very convenience for those who like to travel using Metro, and bus station is just at the corner of this hotel. Free Wi-Fi is one of the services in this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ados Excellent Experience in a different part of Paris
Somewhat puzzled by the not so positive reviews. I have stayed in this hotel on my own and with my family and every time, we have received excellent service and felt comfortable in the rooms and around the neighborhood. The hotel is brilliantly located and close to the Jardin Villemin, next to a very pleasant canal. Not to mention that it is across the station and in an interesting, multicultural neighborhood. I have walked from Les Halles at 2:00 AM and at 2:00 PM and never have felt unsafe!. I highly recommend this property and the staff is always helpful and welcoming. We are coming back in early May and looking forward to it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overdreamer 8 Exxxcellent Stay
I stayed there to enjoy my getaways. I reserved with Christmas offer. However, to honor platinum member, the hotel give me a suite room and breakfast with the late checkout!
Well, suite room is not a "real" suite room that I thought(it was like a connecting room with separate table), but I reaaally satisfied with it. I never treated like this stay before and after. Thank you for your generous upgrade.
Good location for the train departing from Netherlands and Belgium(Gare de Nord) and Germany(Gare de L'est).
Also, metro station was right in front of the hotel.
Staffs are nice. But I cannot open my room after the noon(the staff said that the room key is only available until the noon and it looses its function automatically.)
Again, thank you for the all staff, and I really enjoyed it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderfull55 good sleeping experience
Very helpful staff. Not the best location, but very useful if you need to reach quickly Gare de l'Est ou Gare du Nord for Thalys or Eurostar.
Cleanliness and confort are more than expected for an Holiday Inn, really a very good surprise.
Have a drink at Brasserie around corner for a real multicultural experience and very parisian

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BloorVA Clean, Easy Accessibility, Terrible Wireless.
Needed a more budget-friendly place to stay for a quick weekend in Paris (ran the annual marathon). A typically small room, but with lovely windows, a comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom (a bit outdated on some of the fixture upkeep). Hotel staff was very kind and hotel is very accessible, directly across from Gare du L'est train stop. Wireless service, however, is completely useless. We were not able to successfully connect (and when we did, horribly slow with nothing to load) on any of our devices. We were only on the third floor, so I was shocked such a problem. If you need to do business I would suggest elsewhere until they fix the problem.

Didn't have particularly high hopes but was pleasantly surprised - lovely light clean room with little balcony. Really comfy. Lovely and quiet on the Friday night but sadly very noisy on the Saturday night. All in all not bad though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by chris990 Comfortyable room let down by reception staff
I stayed for 3 nights ideally placed for Eurostar. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I slept really well. The breakfast buffet was the usual suspects and was fresh and enjoyable with plenty of choice.
Unfortunately I found the reception staff poor, they did not make me feel welcome and they did not appear approachable. That aside I did enjoy my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wow beauty Communication is very important
I was very disappointed when I checked in.
The lady who worked 7 to 3 was not very helpful.
The lady who worked 3 to 11, the one with the ponytail
gave me back my confidence with Holiday Inn...
She was the one who gave me the key to my room.
It was not because she gave me a suite room (519)
I do not need a suite room since
I was out all the time
It was the way she talked to me.
She was very sincere in letting me know
what happened to my room.
She has a very pleasing personality and
The young man at the bar is also worth mentioning...
day was Mar 17, 2014
He always went to the FD to follow up my room
without waiting to be told.
He always smiles to every guest and
talked to everybody who passed by...
even if he had problem with the English language
GOOD JOB young man...!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andigatica Bab information
The overall experience was good, but we had a problem with the recepcionists. We had to take a flight to Rome from Beauveais AirPort, and we knew it was far from the city center but we didn't know how much or how to get there, so we asked three different recepcionists for help. The three of them told us different information and non of them were actually right. For their uninformation, we almost lost our flight and we had to pay an enormous amount of money in taxi to get to the airport as fast as we could because the receptionist told us on first place it wouldnt take long. We had a very bad time and all because of the receptionist doing their jobs wrong.

Overall good experience at the Holiday inn Gare de l'Est. Good location in front of Gare de l'Est main entrance. Internet connectivity and quality of breakfast should be seriously improved.
As a platium member i was upgraded to an executive room (Suite). Thanks, but with a suite they need at least give a bottle of water.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ben-D Nettes Personal, schwacher Service
Das Hotel ist gut gelegen, direkt an der Metro des Gare d'lest.
Es war ein Executive Zimmer gebucht welche auch teilweise Renoviert sind. Zimmer war absolut ok mit schönem Blick auf die Stadt. Leider fährt jedoch nur einer von drei Aufzügen die 7&8 Etage an, daher ist oft umsteigen nötig da man sich natürlich keinen Fahrstuhl aussuchen kann.
Das Personal ist freundlich aber wenig hilfreich. Sowohl der Wunsch mach einem zweiten Bademantel als auch die Bitte um eine Flasche Champagner bei Anreise als Überraschung wurden nicht erfüllt. Eine Antwort auf meine E-Mail bezüglich des Champagners erhielt ich sogar erst nach Check-In.
Das Frühstück ist sehr lecker und mit einer guten Auswahl. Durchaus empfehlenswert.

Hotel give us room at member floor and executive room which is twice bigger than normal room but no view at all. Anyway, we just come back and rest sleep bath at night time. the whole day tour outside with full of pick picketers around the Paris train metro line at Eiffel tour tourist area.. We lost Samsung Galaxy Note 3 S$1098 by pick pocket at Eiffel tower. Reported to police also couldn't help. I saw many tourist who kenna pick pocket at police station. French police should ambush and catch them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David76 Smell
The smell of the room was horrible. The bathroom floor was coming up. He carpet was stained. The sounds from out side would keep you up even after a long day of sight seeing. The staff in the lobby never greeted me I was always the first to say hello. I never got the upgrade I requested and never was asked or thanked for being a priority club member.
Our over all experience was not good. But it was a good location for the metro and train to the airport.

I have stayed at this place more than 5 times now. The staff is always co operative, but it was very strange during last stay that the internet service was very poor and had hard time downloading my emails. This needs to be improved and at least in this modern era, they should provide wifi in the rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rock'n Roller Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis
Liegt äusserst günstig direkt gegenüber des Bahnhofs GARE DE L'EST und erspart umständliche Wege gepäckbeladen zum Hotel. Personal ist freundlich, hilfsbereit und sehr aufmerksam.
Das Zimmer war nicht zu gross, aber absolut ausreichend, zweckmässig eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Die Zimmer zum Innenhof sind ruhig (wohl im Gegensatz zu denen, die zur Strassenseite hin bei geöffneten Fenstern, aber für eine Grossstadt wie Paris normal); nur hier kann es unter Umständen zu Geruchsbeeinträchtigung durch das direkt benachbarte Restaurant kommen, dessen Küchenabluft wohl auch zum Innenhof herausgeleitet wird.
Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in dem Bereich rund um das Hotel sind vielfältig, genauso wie zahlreichen Bistros, Restaurants und ein paar Bars. Erfreulicherweise ist auch eine Metrostation direkt vor dem Hotel, so das von hier jegliche Unternehmungen bequem gestartet werden können.
Ein gutes Hotel mit sauberen Zimmern, zuvorkommendem Personal und verkehrsgünstiger Lage, welches auch im Vergleich mit anderen Hotels in dieser Kategorie gute Preise hat. Gerne wieder!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulVic Excellent value
When i researched a stay in Paris like London I found it very expensive at 4 star hotels with an abundance of cheaper hotels but most around 100 euros a night
I was amazed to see the Holiday Inn at such good value so being a frequent stayer booked this Hotel
It was easy to reach from the Eurostar terminal and right outside was the entrance to the excellent Metro system and one of the key lines which lead directly to the main tourist places .
There were also some reasonable priced restaurants near although generally the area isn't the best in Paris so I kept within the hotel area which is over looking the main line station
I had an upgrade to an executive room as I am a Platinum member and this had a separate lounge and a king size bed
I would prefer next time a higher floor as it was sometimes noisy from the road outside but generally an excellent stay
The staff were very friendly and the bar man excellent
Breakfast not the best but typical and adequate
I ate there once but other times had brunch when out as like to eat at French restaurants or cafes
There is not an evening meal facility but an excellent restaurant underneath which used to be part of the hotel in the old days but now independent
Free internet down in bar area
