0.17km from Le PurgatoireI was surprised by how lovely this hotel was. Very close to Gare du Nord but it fellt like an oasis and the area still had a local residential feel. It's opposite a small park, just tucked behind Rue Lafayette. My room was on the top floor, thankfully there is a lift. The room was a good size for Paris and spotlessly clean. In fact the room was much nicer than I think the images on the hotel website suggest. White wooden floorboards and walls and white bedding. The bathroom was very small but the shower was not cramped. The whole room was tiled and there were bath and hand towels. The hairdrier wasn't too bad for a hotel. Toiletries good, Aesops, if minimal. Just one shower gel and one shampoo. Small flat screen TV but only French channels. The bar area is really nice both in decor and atmosphere. They do fantastic cocktais and the breakfast (I just had coffee and croissant) was as good and same price as cafes. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. Only one one gripe and that was price. I booked last minute and what was probably a €120-150 room a night cost me over €300 a night. It was the same situation for other hotels. They hike last minute prices in the summer, so they were not alone in this. However, thats why it gets 4 stars not 5. Final slight negative was that the bathroom tiles were getting mouldy in some places and there was a small patch of damp on the bathroom celing. It wasn't awful but a good hotel should keep on top of this. Overall, I thoroughly recommend this hotel and would book again.
