Nadaud-Hôtel Paris Reviews
Reliable, affordable, friendly and good value hotel in Paris Jun 30, 2014
N48°51.909' E2°23.691' Paris is known for many things, but the quality of hotels is not one if them. Our task was to find a reasonable priced, modern and clean hotel room with private bathroom and no bad reviews online, four months in advance. Many top choices were already unavailable. B&B's didn't differentiate on price with hotels and many were not more than a bedroom with shared bathroom in an owner’s apartment. I noticed Nadaud Hôtel by its high rating and very modest price for Paris (€85 per night without breakfast) and checked all the reviews to discover the catch. There wasn’t one.
Nadaud Hôtel is near cemetery Du Père-Lacháise in the non-touristy 20th arrondissement of Paris. Take exit 4 or 5 from Gambetta underground station or take bus 26 from near Gare du Nord directly to Place Gambetta and walk 100 meters. Due to heavy traffic the underground is probably faster, but you have to change at underground station. République. From Gambetta you can reach the centre of Paris in minutes.
The friendly owners were very helpful with making reservations. They speak English. At confirmation, you have to pay one night in advance. We requested room 629 on the 6th floor with the best view of Paris. At arrival room 630 was available with the second best view of Paris. In the evening we enjoyed the view of the illuminated Eiffel Tower.
Room 630 isn’t huge, just enough space to walk around the bed, but has an excellent double bed, flat television, safe box and split air-conditioner during our stay in June 2014 for four nights. Room 630 is in the loft under the roof. We didn't use the air-conditioner, but during summers we expect it can be hot under the roof. The private bathroom with shower was excellent. Wi-Fi reception too, only the code was not displayed in the room, but available at the reception. There is no tea or coffee maker, nor mini fridge in the room. Room service is non-existing. If you want something, bar & restaurant Les Foudres is around the corner, open for diner till 23:00 and drinks afterwards or go to fruit shop, grocery store or bakery nearby. The room was cleaned everyday. Towels were changed, but not the bed linen.
We ordered breakfast everyday for €8 per person. It’s served in the room at requested time, because Nadaud Hôtel doesn’t have a dining room. We loved the fresh coffee, croissants en baguette.
Some may argue that Nadaud Hôtel is a budget hotel without many amenities and luxury. Americans may complain that the room is small and their obese bodies do not fit the shower, but Nadaud Hôtel for us is a clean, modern and affordable hotel. Very recommended.
