As stated in all of these reviews, this is a good hotel for quick stays in Paris. Across the street from the Gare Nord so travel around Paris is easy. Sure, it is a little noisy from the street traffic but so is the majority of Paris. The hotel has a classic charm of traditional Parisian wallcoverings and paintings. The rooms are normal sized (small) but relatively clean. The staff is friendly and everyone speaks english. Save your money on renting a nicer hotel, stay here, and buy a nicer dinner or a small souvenir. The only real negative is the late-night locals near station but they are relatively harmless if in a group or you act like you live here. Enjoy.

Under renovation

by A TripAdvisor Member

This hotel (which also goes by the names "Mercure Terminius Nord" and "Hotel Terminus Nord") was a disaster. Whatever you do, do not stay here until you know they have completed the renovations currently underway. We had booked by phone a few days previously and had not been told that the place was undergoing major renovation. We were astounded when we walked into the “lobby” which was about 30 feet square and consisted of a painted plywood desk and two computers. We had stayed here twice before and the lobby we knew was beautiful and spacious. We asked whether we were at the correct place. Indeed we were. There was little choice but to register, so we did. The two young guys a the desk were polite enough, but they were working from a very marred base. The next news they had for us was that the elevator (a service elevator) was not working and that we would have to wait until the repariman came, or lug our packs up to our room (mercifully on the second floor). We chose the second option, and made our way over plywood scaffolding and up a flight of stairs where the rug and the brass rods that were supposed to hold it in place were coming off. Finding our room in this cavernous place was made slightly more difficult by the fact that some numbers had fallen off the directional signs. The hallways were very run down. We could not complain much about the room, however. It too was frayed at the edges, but it had been cleaned, as had the bathroom. Two towels had been thrown on the towel rack. At least they were clean.

Update

The renovations seem to be over in the lobby and restaurant areas. Not sure if they are starting on the rooms soon. There are roadworks outside at the moment (October 2005), so could be noisy in the morning if you face the station. Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard/glass dome area. Much quieter.

Very convenient

by TripAdvisor Member higgib

Fantastic location - 10 mins after getting off Eurostar we were unpacking in our room. 20 min slowish walk to Sacre Couer (well worth a visit)and metro lines 4 and 5 right outside the door. Room small but clean,comfortable and quiet at the back of the hotel. Roadworks still outside (resurfacing) but could not hear anything in the room. Breakfast basic, but staff very polite and helpful. Decor a little bit tired in rooms and corridors (shabby chic!!!) but public areas all very nice. Some nice restaurants nearby. Terminus restaurant (Downstairs, but not part of the hotel - food good, staff a bit snobby(!) and tables very cramped - we made very intimate friends with the couples either side of us - the tables were actually touching!!!! Would stay here again.

Stay Away

The Terminus Nord is a horrible hotel. Even though I had gone on their website for photos, I was extremely disappointed when I arrived. The hotel lobby, described as elegant, was small and cramped. The lobby photos on the website are obviously of another hotel. The photo examples of the rooms were also misleading. Of the 6 rooms I went into, none were even close to the photos on the website. Our room was positively decrepit, and reeked of smoke and dust; we had to sleep with the windows open to breathe without coughing and sneezing (my roommate has asthma and I have allergies). Our tub had mildew on the walls and the sink was dirty. We were not given face towels, just hand and bath towels. When we called the front desk to ask about face towels, we were told they did not provide face towels for their guests. I am told they recently underwent a renovation and if this is true, I am very glad to know that we did not arrive prior to the renovation. Had that been the case, I’m sure I would have gone to the airport for a flight home rather than stay there.

This hotel, while convenient to the Gard du Nord train station, is in a seedy part of town. I witnessed drug deals and prostitution beside the train station while exiting the metro; there are also sex shops nearby. There were armed guards in the station with dogs, and while that should have made me feel more safe, it only served to make me feel very uneasy about our location. Added to that there was a major construction project going on in the street in front of the hotel, which made it even more dangerous to get into the hotel.

This hotel is old, musty and not worth the money. They will definitely not see me on my return trip to Paris.
