Good budget optionPosted Aug 10, 2014
Pros: The location of the hotel is good with the metro and plenty of shops and cafes nearby, and with the kitchen facilities we can prepare our own food.
Cons: Noise from lift and plumbing kept me awake. Lift.corridors all smell very stale and sometimes quite bad. Dustbin area at entrance smells foul too!!!
Location: Park de la Villette disappointing. Things closed or inaccesible, deserted. Basin villette much better, Paris plage and free stuff for kids.
Our room was very pleasant and clean. The twin beds were very comfortable, and bedding and towels provided were great.

Just stay in this hotel if your budget cant afford best hotels. The only good thing that I can write is that this hotel is in front of a metro station.

AwfulPosted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: Location was next to a Metro station
Cons: Don't even bother
Location: Police station was nearby and easy access to Metro station
Awful hotel with terrible service. Reception person was dour and unfriendly. While checking into the hotel my husband backpack was stolen (lousy neighborhood). Person working reception REFUSED to call the police when I asked him to, telling me I should go out into the street and locate police myself. The room was set up so that I could barrel get passed the bed to the only area where you could place your luggage. Too much useless furniture in a small space. There have got to be better hotels for the money

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 exactlytPosted 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 placePosted 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"

Tidy and finePosted Apr 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was a clean, small room, fine for our use of sleeping at night between our Parisian adventures. Nothing expansive but the fridge was helpful for us keeping some breakfast stuff in the room. It's also right across from the metro station Ourcq which made getting home at night a breeze, though we walked to our destinations in the mornings so as not to miss out on stuff, and even that was not too bad a distance.

LocationPosted 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!
