Nice hotelPosted 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.

Handy for the metroPosted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Situation was very convenient
Cons: the rooms are in need of a good clean and they really should get proper beds!
Location: Metro link into all the tourist areas just outside the hotel. Walk or Metro to the local park Parc Buttes Chaumont for a relaxing afternoon .
The hotel was a handy base for our 3 nights in Paris. Convenient for the metro as there is a station just outside and there is a bakery and cafe close by too. The room was very small with a lot of furniture crammed in it. The sofa bed was a bit uncomfortable. The bathroom was clean but the kitchen wasn't. The area was friendly and I would recommend taking a walk to the local park (or the 7 Metro line) as it is lovely and far more relaxing than some of the more famous city green spaces. To sum it up, It is a budget hotel so I was not expecting luxury, but I have stayed in better hotels for similar prices. It did not impact on the enjoyment of our holiday though.

Nice hotel, close to Metro station, friendly staffPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: Staff at the reception were friendly, close to metro station, rooms were neat and tidy.
Cons: Must maintain 'No smoking area' and 'Noise Free area' with strict instruction to everyone there during key handover time.
Location: The location is absolutely great, Metro station is just outside 10 meters away which is great.
Nice hotel with self catering facilities with all basic requirements like fridge freezer, cooker, oven, kitchen units/cupboard, cooking utensils, microwave etc. Staff at the reception were very friendly and speak reasonable English, we met no other service staff during our stay of three nights. Although it says 'Non smoking area', but people were smoking around the the corridor that made us uncomfortable, and people at the corridor made huge noise until midnight, hardly could sleep well. Major strength is that it is just 10 meters away from the Metro Station, was safe and quiet outside the hotel, good deal of restaurants and bars around, groceries for self-catering, WiFi whilst in hotel. We had to book at the last moment so was reasonably not that great cheap hotel.

reminisce of a roach motel...without the roachPosted Jun 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
it is really small. The bed is like that of a pull-out couch with two twin 4-inch thick mattresses with some sort of wood board underneath to keep it firm. The light in the foyer doesn't work. Only one key for two people. the walls are thin, so the noise from the other rooms can be heard into the AMs. The worst is the bathroom. The toilet seat is made of flimsy plastic. IMO, I don't think they clean the bathroom. If they did, they would realize the shower stall does not drain well. it takes one minute for the 2x2 feet shower stall to fill half way up the 4-inch deep pan. I had to turn on the water to wet myself then lather in soap. then turn on the water to rinse. quite disgusting thinking that it was not cleaned and serviced. On the plus side, the apartment is right by the Metro about 50 feet and the Internet is decently fast.

good enough for the pricePosted Apr 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
This place is ok, rooms are big enough not the cleanest. Very close to the metro station Ourcq in fact exit 3 from the station is at the front door, the area is good not many tourists so you get a break from the crowds.

Convenient to Metro, right outside the hotel doorPosted Jul 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
As my wife and I were on our honeymoon, and she has ciliac desease (can't eat any wheat, rye, etc.) we had to have a place that had a kitchen in it to prepare food for her. The place was small but would do for a 4 night visit. The honeymoon doubble bed was just two single beds moved next to each other and each of us could imagine us falling between the beds during honeymoon activities! The appartment was touted as sort of a delux place but upon arrival it was a dissappointment. It appears they MAY have used photos of rooms in their other fancier accomodations in other towns and cities but not the one in Paris. It was serviceable but certantly not delux.Main dissappointment was the bathroom-shower combination: there wasn't ANY separation, or shower curten, to prevent water from the shower from spraying all over the rest of the bathroom facilities . . . . after a shower, the entire floor was wet and so was the toilet, sink, and if one wasn't carefull, the towels, too. Best part of the place was its location. A few metro stops from the Gare du Nord and you were right in front of the place, making it easy to hop on the Metro and ride anywhere in the city. For the price we would up paying for the 4 night stay, I was expecting a beter place. Unless the place puts up some sort of shower curten, I wouldn't go back again. OR, they ought to lower the price.

Not impressedPosted Sep 30, 2009
The lobby smelled of dirty rubbish bins. The second day I had a serious leak of the toilet and was changed to another room where the TV did not work. It was very hot and there was not even a fan in the room. Last but not least I was not advised when I checked in that reception would be closed the day I was to check out and therefore what I should do with the key. I know it was not expensive for being an apartment in Paris itself but it was not worth one cent more than the asking price and perhaps a little less.

The Hidden HotelPosted Sep 28, 2007 on Hotels.com
On the main road of Av. Jean Jaures, you count down the numbers of the buildings, when you finally reach the hotel Appart'City Paris (#157). The hotel was secure and easy to get into, a perfect place to just put your head down and rest for the night. This isn't the sort of hotel in which you would spend a lot of time in because it is purely a 'basics' hotel. Don't get me wrong, it was perfect, clean and provided the information that we required, but this was only a halfway house sort of hotel. The sort of place that is perfect for a good nights sleep. The receptionist was more than helpful and every piece of information he gave us, he has previously done, so there was no complications or false information.

Very small, but very cleanPosted Jun 3, 2005
When my husband and I first arrived at this hotel, we were very disappointed, but we were also very tired from the long drive from Germany to Paris. Although I had read many reviews about the cramped hotels in Paris, I was still surprised. The room was very clean, but the bed was as hard as the ground and I had difficulty moving around in the tiny shower (I'm only 4'10"!) which had very cold water. As our trip progressed, though, we learned that our hotel was bigger than most, and after the long days of walking, we did not mind the bed...I slept sooo good. We also learned that there is a switch behind the front door that turns on the hot water...go figure! We were very thankful for the mini-fridge, stove, sink and microwave oven because we brought a packed ice chest on our trip to save on expensive meals in Paris. Also, the metro is directly outside the front door of the hotel...very convenient! Other benefits: there is private parking in a locked garage at only $8.00 a day and there is an amazing bakery just on the corner.
