Hotel Abricotel (19th)

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 16, 2012

This is a no-frills two-star hotel located in the northeast corner of Paris. At first I thought it was a bit far from the center, but after I knew the way it only took me 22 minutes by Vélib' bike to get back to the hotel from Place de la Bastille.

Of course if you had business in Auteuil or Javel, at the opposite corner of the city, you would probably want to stay there and not here. But if you want to explore the Canal St. Martin, Les Buttes-Chaumont or La Villette Park (with the Music Museum, Cité de la Musique and Cité des sciences et de l’industrie), then this is a convenient place to stay.

Second photo: Vélib' station 19012, with 58 attachment points, is only half a block from the hotel across from a pleasant little square at 5 rue Lally Tollendal. I always found a bike here when I needed one, and always found a free attachment point when I returned in the evening.

Note the Wallace Fountain in the middle of the little square across from the Vélib' station. This is one of the sixty-five remaining "large model fountains" in which the roof is held up by four women representing kindness, simplicity, charity and sobriety. The water falling from the roof is safe to drink, in fact that's what it's for.

Third photo: My room at the Hotel Abricotel was small but perfectly adequate, and at 57 Euros per night was not unduly expensive. The continental breakfast cost seven Euros extra, but you could decide each day if you wanted it or not.

Fourth photo: The street, rue Lally Tollendal, was named after the Marquis de Lally-Tollendal (1751-1830), a politician who was active before, during and after the French Revolution.
