Great for the money.

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: The price; location, considering the price; kitchenette and fridge.
Cons: Tea pot in the kitchen; air conditioning or fan.
Location: Walking distance: Canal St. Martin, couple of nice parks. 30 min max by Metro to any sight (or anywhere) in Paris.
Great budget hotel for those who don't mind small rooms and no maid. Our room had a kitchenette and a fridge. Hotel is located on a noisy street so if your room is on the street side, you will have to keep the window shut (no air conditioning). 10 yards from the Metro station, 15 min by Metro to the center; we actually walk to the center once. Short walk to couple of parks and canals. Bakery is next door, grocery store, many restaurants and cafes are near by. I would stay there again, but if you don't like making up your own bed and taking out your trash, you will need to find something more expensive.

not a hotel exactlyt

Posted Jun 1, 2014
it's not too bad, inexpensive option, convenient to airport. Wifi costs extra and is intermittent and low bandwidth.No clean towel service and you have to take out your trash, wash dishes before you go to avoid extra charges. Just wasn't what I was expecting, thought it was a hotel, but if you know what's coming, cost is low, so you decide

good location for a place to sleep!

Posted May 29, 2014
Pros: great location, outside of town but accessible to all downtown area by metro. Just bought a 2 day unlimited pass and was off seeing everything.
Cons: seems like the shower could have been scrubbed. Wore my sandals in the shower and bathroom at all times.
Location: lots of food areas, with markets for fresh fruit very close. restaurants galore everywhere.
take out your own trash and clean all the dishes you use if you use them. Other then that its a hotel with old style keys. Don't lose it as it is 40 euro to replace. there are 5 rooms each of the 8 floors in the front. in the back i am not for sure but seems like a lot more. Windows are large with no screens and can open up all the way on the top portion. Our room had a table with 2 chairs, a double bed, a night stand in one room with a door, in the other "room" it was a hallway really that had the kitchen with 2 burners, a noisy fridge, and lots of pots and pans and dishes. 2 pillows on bed, 2 more in closet behind the bed. the bathroom was cozy and had some little areas for all your toiletries. the shower is very small but it was easy enough. Very hot water which is nice. Elevator to the floors could be heard from our room and we had 1 room between us and it. The room had a view to the outside street. Right next to the Ourcq metro #5 which was excellent to get anywhere. Great food areas all around and just down the street north a little bit towards the rail station. not to many cars, could leave the window open at night and still sleep with the background noise of the city. has a locked door after 8PM to the lobby (which closes also at around 8PM or something). Lobby is closed in the middle of the day and after 8PM and doesn't open till 8AM. if you want to check out earlier you just drop you key. Be prepared to pay a tid bit for internet and electricity bill 2.5 euro a day

Stay away from this place

Posted May 14, 2014
Pros: Nothing; hate it all.
Cons: They should close down.
Location: Too far from city anyhow, even with a metro station by their door.
Worst experience ever recorded. No hot water, no one available on holidays. The rely on information on their website. They lie. People that work there are as bad as the facilities. They claim that to come stay with them, a working cell phone is necessary. Listen to our experience with them on youtube, search for their name "Apartcity paris la villette"

Location

Posted Apr 26, 2014
The best thing about this apartment was the location - the metro was literally right on its door step. This meant it was quick and easy to get around to all the sites and less time dragging all your suitcases around! The staff are also very friendly, helpful and spoke great English. If you arrive before check in time you can leave your bags at the reception for a small fee of 1.50€. The apartment itself was quite old but quite roomy. We were on the 8th floor so the groan from the ancient elevator could be heard all night. There is a hospital nearby so there are lots of sirens going off, however, they can usually be drowned out when the windows are shut. The bed was a thin pull out sofa bed which squeaked with every move. The bathroom was small and there seemed to be a foul smell coming from all the drains, not sure if this was the apartments fault or just Paris in general. We had to keep our bathroom door shut majority of the time. Overall, the size of the apartment, the staff and the location of the hotel made up for it's other faults. Although I wouldn't want more than two nights on that sofa bed!

Very convenient for Metro and in a nice area.

Pros: Great location, direct link to Gare du Nord. Really good shower for a French appartment.
Cons: Provision of a kettle and toaster would have been handy.
Location: See comments above
Beside the Metro, bakers, supermarket and restaurants. Nice friendly neighbourhood with new things to see. E.g. Parc La Villette, Canal St Martin.

Nice hotel

Posted Dec 2, 2013
This hotel was located literally 10 feet away from a Metro stop (Ourcq) which was probably what made it such a nice stay for us. We are college students and only wanted a place to rest our heads for the night. The bed was comfy. The room was very clean. The bathroom was nice and also clean. It also came with a kitchen, fridge and cooking utensils which make it a really great place to stay for a week visit and to save some money on eating out. The price was really great for us as well. I'm very surprised that it was as nice as it was for the price we were paying. The metro system is very quick (feels quicker than London) and we were able to get to wherever we wanted very easily. There is also a really great and authentic restaurant just down the street called Le Brasier des Ternes. The waiters were very friendly, it's very cozy and has great French food! The only unusual thing about the hotel was that the reception was closed on Sundays so when we checked out we had to leave our key in a box. It just seemed a little bit strange because what if we had had a problem with the room or anything on that day. Luckily we didn't so it really was overall a great visit and place to stay.

For the price we pay you got nothing in Paris. Location is great as we have the Metro (subway) exactly at the door. There are several cafeterias, restaurants and supermarkets at a few yards. Office personnel very helpful.
