Table of Contents
The service was good, we had to wait a short time to check in. But once we could check in, the check in was smooth and quick.
The staff are pleasant, friendly and can speak very good English.
As we purchased our accommodation and Eurostar under the same booking, the price to stay at Hotel Ibis Gare du Nord was quite reasonable, especially for its location.
The hotel is set to a good standard, which is reflected in the price.
The hotel is very clean, tidy and to a very high standard. The room was designed nicely, the bathroom was well stocked with all the amenities and clean.
The bar area is quite small, but was kept to a high standard of cleanliness.
The one thing that impressed us with the hotel, was the basement. Lockers are located in the basement, so you can store your luggage on check out. There is a small deposit, which you pay at the locker to release the individual key. This deposit is refundable on return of the key and obtaining your belongings. We loved this feature, knowing that our personal belongings will be safe.
There is a small bar, providing drinks and light dishes, whilst the breakfast room was of a good size.
There’re also car parking facilities in the basement.
The hotel is in a prime location, only a couple of minutes’ walk from the Eurostar station at Paris Gare du Nord, and a few minutes’ walk from the metro station.
The metro station has great links to Paris city center, and other connecting lines, to get you around Paris and to the major attractions.
Our room was small and basic, but had everything we needed, e.g. table and chair, small coat/clothes rack, TV and bed.
The bathroom was of a good size and stocked with the main amenities.
Whilst the room may have been quite compact, it doesn’t neglect the fact that you are only sleeping in the room, and do not need a large room or space.
Food and drink
The food at the hotel, was good. We had the breakfast in the morning, but there wasn’t much of a range.
Breakfast consisted of the typical French breakfast such as eggs that are to be boiled, cheese, ham, bread, fruit, yoghurt and a small range of cereal. Tea, coffee and fruit juices are available.
In our opinion the breakfast could have been a little better, but it wasn’t terrible.
Overall, our stay at Hotel Ibis Gare du Nord, was a good experience. We love that the hotel is in a very good location. We didn’t feel unsafe walking back to the hotel in the evening, and the room had everything that we needed. The selling point for us would have to be the location, and the lockers in the basement to keep your belongings safe. In our experience, not many hotels have these facilities. If you need to leave your belongings, normally its left behind reception. If, unless you are completely happy to leave your belongings with the receptionist, then the lockers are something that puts your mind at rest.
Would we recommend you staying here? Yes, we would! If we were to return to Paris, we would stay at Hotel Ibis Gare du Nord again.
