The staff there (a kind woman) is very very nice! She taught me the transportation to Paris Central, suggested me good restaurants, etc. It is very important to have a good guidance at hotel for solo traveller! I was really worried before I came to Paris, coz I heard from a lot of people saying that people in Paris aren't nice. But thanks to to this kind woman , I safely travelled Paris and enjoyed the trip very much! The location of the hotel is fine, it is near to Paris North train station (Gare du Nord), just about 10 min walking distance. It is also near to metro (10 min walk), so that you can actually take metro to central area easily. The hotel is also near to some famous places that you can walk there. However, sometimes I could hear some noises from train, maybe it is too close to train station? Generally, the experience of living in this hotel is awesome, I would suggest people to stay here! and the price is not very high!
