New Hotel Gare du Nord Paris Reviews
Across from Paris' Gare Du Nord Oct 20, 2007
The New Hotel Gare Du Nord in Paris is quite popular, based on the sheer number of online reviews from people who stayed there and the chaos in the extremely small (but snazzy-looking) lobby during check-in. Many reviews are scathing. The rest think that the hotel is simply adequate for their needs. Although I don't normally do so, I'll try to highlight the positives of the hotel while stating the obvious: this place is not going to help you leave Paris with any thoughts of romance or fond memories.
We had arrived from Brussels that day by train and simply had to cross the street after leaving the Gare du Nord to find the hotel. Very convenient! The check-in staff was very friendly and almost a bit cheeky. Despite the building being quite old (or historic is another way to put it), there was an elevator (lift). It was hilarious, though, as it was only (and barely) big enough for one person and a bag at a time. The winding stair case was not any easier though.
The room had Internet access (another important aspect for us), but the pictures of the rooms online were very misleading. When I looked at the pics again, I could see that it is the same room...just that the pictures had more decorative items around it. Our room was stripped bare of any nonessential item and was quite small...particularly for the price we paid.
There are a number of restaurants and cafes around the area, though. And taking advantage of the train station allowed for us to get around Paris easily. Plus, the buses in the area were convenient and easy to figure out.
I probably would look to stay elsewhere if I return to Paris, but I wouldn't not recommend this place to others, as this could be a very convenient place for some people.
