Central location to metro system, Gard Du L'est,

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Location: Close to the metro and only a few stops in any given direction to sights of interest.
Hotel and rooms were clean. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were very small. Only continental breakfast served and expensive for that. The hotel on the whole is ok to use as a place to lay your head but has no amenities and is too small to spend any other time there.

Paris visit

Posted Aug 4, 2014
The hotel was too small and average comfort. The people in Paris were unfriendly and arrogant. Paris was a great disappointment and was very unclean. For a 50th birthday treat for a friend we were all disappointed and disillusioned and shall not be visiting again. Please don't drive in Paris as they are lethal and dangerous.

Excellent small hotel in Paris centre

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: The staff were very good, especially the young lady at reception. Lovely strong shower that was easy to get to the ideal temperature.
Cons: The bed was a bit like a board, so was not entirely comfortable for me.
Location: The hotel was very close to the Gare de L'Est and about a 5 minute walk from the Gare du Nord. There are a lot of restaurants and Brasseries nearby.
Very nice young lady at reception. Room pleasant, neutral colours and extremely good shower room (small but classily fitted out). Glad there was a safe for my passport and British money.

10 minutes to 2 stations

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Location, staff and comfort.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The hotel is 5 to 10 minutes from Gare du Nord and 5 from Gare de Est. Paris is yours for the taking !
We arrived at Gare du Nord and had an easy stroll down Magenta to the hotel. A small but bright and cheery reception area with English speaking staff. The lift took us up to our room which was also bright and welcoming,although small - but it suited us for one nights stay . The bathroom was clean and nicely maintained. We had good advice from the night receptionist who directed us to a perfect North African restaurant 2 streets away La Numidya was good value with perfect food and service.. Although our room was on the main street and we had the windows open,we had a good nights sleep..

Good location and nice, helpful staff

The Hotel Alane was good for our stay, reasonably affordable and convenient to Gare du Nord and 60 meters from Gare de l'Est. This availability is part problem as neighborhood between the Alane and Gare du Nord, at least along Rue de Faub.-Saint Denis was a little rough. Would not term it dangerous, just happy when it is behind you. Staff were unfailingly helpful and most pleasant. Room was small and adequate, relatively clean. Bathroom/shower painfully small and in need of a facelift. All in all, would still go back again for the convenience. TC United States

Great for short stay.

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Small rooms and bathroom, but if all you need is a place to stay for a couple nights to visit Paris and you are coming into Gare de Nore or Gare de Est it is perfect. Easy walk pulling a roller bag from either train station. Recently remodeled and clean. Desk staff very friendly especially Carolina she was real helpful. Also metro stop to go into city was just around the corner. I felt safe in area and there are plenty of bars/places to eat. Would definitely stay again if ever in Paris.

Tiny room but adequate and convenient

Posted May 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was barely big enough for the queen sized bed but the hotel was very close to four main line stations and some good eating places. It was only for one night and the price was good and the staff very friendly and helpful.

good

the front desk service was great, and the hotel is close to a metro stop, the neighbourhood was okay, but not great.
