For a weekend, this hotel is a good choice. It has all the basic needs and is not too expensive. For 72 EUR per night, you'll have a decent small room with bathroom and TV. For 6 EUR per person extra, you can have a buffet breakfast.
Unique Quality: The hotel is close to Gare du Nord (5 min walk), interesting for those who come by Eurostar, Thalys or TGV, and close to the metro stop 'Chateau Landon' (100m).
After check-out, you can leave your luggage in lockers provided by the hotel.
I've already booked:
Ibis Paris Sacré Coeur
100, Boulevard Rochechouart
83 eu per night.
How far is it from the center on foot? Maybe I should book another hotel in Paris?
Thank in advance,
We just returned from Paris and stayed at the "Hotel Du College De France". It was very close to everything and was located in the Latin Quarter. Just a few minute walk to Norte-Dame. It was just a block from the Sorbonne University. We paid 93 Euros. The hotel is 2 star but very personable and the rooms are fine. If we return to Paris we will stay there again.
Sergei, you are at the base of the hill that goes up to Mont Martre / Sacre Coeur. As you go North on Rochechouart it turns into Clichy on which is located the famous Moulin Rouge. However, the area is known as the Red Light district. OK during the day, but at night all the sex shops open and there are more petty thieves, etc. around. You have to be careful of some of the bars as they entice you in, then force you to order drinks. Some say they have been forced to spend $100 on a few drinks. Last September we walked down from Sacre Coeur through this area and found many cool places to stop, small shops, etc. But at night I would avoid it. You are a short walk to two metros that can inexpensively take you anyplace in the city. Karl
Thank you very much!
Most probably I'll stay there because it's cheap and close to undeground... but will be careful=)))
If you want to travel the metro and the buses, get a carnet of 10 tickets from the metro.... it's cheaper and saves time...
If you want to check the area visually, go to http://photos.pagesjaunes.fr/
Type in the address and you will get a photo of the hotel and a little map of the area. Under the photo are some arrows and you can see the buildings on either side of your by clicking on the arrow pointing that way, You can also click to see across the street.
You an click your way up and down the street with the arrows . . . or you can click on the little map and it will show the building where you have clicked.
It gives you a feel for the area if you are worried about it. It's fun too.
Thank you very much! I haven't thought about trasportation yet=) So I would like to come back to this question a bit later.
The web site you advised me doesn't work... I'll try to view it tomorrow. Thank you!
