Oh my goodness, what a crazy weekend this was! Just a week before me and two other assistants - Brad and Kristy - decided we wanted to take a trip to Paris, where we would stay in a hostel with one of my friends from uni, Ed. Despite the long journeys and uncomfortable coaches, we had a blast!
We set off from Dortmund at 8.30pm on Friday night, after eating a very filling Vapiano's and buying lots of Süßigkeiten (sweets!) for the journey. At first the coach was ...
... the outside of the Louvre as the sun set...there I met a older lady from Denmark...we started talking. And she was also on vacation alone... very cool... we ended up exchanging info, to keep in touch. She was charming!
Finally the girls arrived and I met them at the new hotel...it was nice. Certainly a change from what I had gotten used to. It was nice to see some friendly familiar faces at this point...so we went up and settled into our room, ...
... translate most of the menu which included snails and frog soup. I ordered the terrine and a creme brûlée for dessert. In the cafe was an Aussie couple who I chatted to through out my meal.
After lunch I had to make my way to the coach station which I reached on time. I boarded the coach and was sat next to a nice Iraqui man who I conversed with for a lot of the trip in between sleeping. I made it back to London at 9:30pm Tuesday night and had to work the next ...
... was thrilling. The view from the summit was spectacular and with the spotlight shining from the top and the strobe lights flashing it was quite an experience. It was well after midnight when we finally descended and when we arrived at the Metro station to ride home we were surprised to learn that we just missed the last train home ! We then rushed around to the opposite platform just in time to climb aboard another train heading to ...
... Pasta restaurant where the food prices looked very reasonable. What we didn't notice until we were ordering was the price of the drinks. For two litres of Pepsi it was 30 Euros, or around $42 - WOW! Still, how many times are you on the Champs Elysees so we enjoyed our supper and had another wonderful tale to tell from our trip.
We wanted to be back at Gare du Nord with plenty of time to spare for our return train to London so we walked down the Champs ...

Historical Traveler Reviews New Hotel Gare du Nord Paris
Sleepless in Paris
We booked a flight and then discovered that there were lots of exhibitions on, hotels were booked up. We chose the hotel, not because of it's star rating, but because we had previously stayed in the general area. The location was good for Gare du Nord station and transport connections. We had a huge room with a strange bed a few inches above the floor. The reception staff were friendly. The shower/toilet was accessed through a swing ranch type door from the bedroom! Breakfast was adequate but measured.
On previous visits to Paris we recall seeing the double glazing being installed at the hotel. If you stay there be aware that there is noise 24hrs a day. Taxis, cars, ambulance sirens from the hospital, rubbish collections in the early hours.
This hotel is fine for a short stay if you want or need to be located near Gare du Nord. However, the area is not the most savoury in Paris (various men stand around apparently doing 'nothing' outside the hotel at all hours; it is also quite close to the sleazier activities).
Stayed at the hotel for two nights on weekend just gone. Arrived in Paris by Eurostar and Hotel is excellent to go straight to - about two minutes from stepping off the train. Reception staff friendly. Check-in was extremely simple. We had room 312. Room was typical of that price range Paris rooms. Older furniture but clean. Two double beds and air conditioning. Bathroom was clean (a bit of mould but nothing to worry about). Shower was good except low down so not so good for taller people. Didn't try breakfast (3yr old and baby slept in). Overall, hotel is fine for a short stay (1 or 2 nights) if arriving at Gare du Nord.
Will Never stay at New Hotel
I have recently stayed at New Hotel, largely due to good reviews the hotel received. I have to say I would prefer sleeping under the moon light at a park in Paris than ever sleeping at this hotel again! Bed sheet and pillows had yellow marks all over. Hope they are not one of those things I am stilling thinking of. I paid €70 per night during off-peak seasons. I have to say I could stay at a better place for this price...
A Little Gem in the 10th
A LITTLE GEM IN THE 10th
Living in a suburb of London, and being fortunate to take Eurostar to Paris at the drop of a hat, The NEW HOTEL is at a great location, because as you leave Gare du Nord,all you do is cross the street and there you are. I have been staying there since 1987, and I gave it 5 for the location. Right off Line 4, 5 of the Metro. You can be anywhere in no time!
Excellent value for money
We stayed at the New Hotel from 24th July for 4 nights. It's straight across the road from the Gare du Nord and if you use the Metro exit for Rue St Quentin the first thing you see is the sign for the hotel above you as you come up the steps. The station is a hub for Metro and RER lines so, although the hotel isn't near to the main attractions, they can be easily reached. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The shower room was on the small side, but spotlessly clean. It's air conditioned and the noise from the streets isn't intrusive as there's double glazing. The breakfast was fine. We got a roll, a croissant and a piece of cake each, along with butter, jam, coffee and apple juice. There's cereal available if you want it.
I'd definitely stay there again.
Spent a few days in London & then took the Eurostar to Paris in November 03. (Best way to enter the city.) It was great to just walk out of the Gare du Nord Station and right across the street to the hotel in the heart of the city. There's nothing fancy here, small lobby, small room. The front desk was helpful (maps, etc), English was spoken, and it helped.
Good location-cheap price
I've stayed here twice now. Both visits have been pleasant. These are basic accomodations at a fair price with a very convenient location. I like being able to get off the train and walk across to the hotel. I can dump my stuff and then catch the Metro to anywhere I want to be in Paris. The Metro is literally 10 feet from the hotel door. If you want luxury, go to a 4-5 star and pay the top dollar (Euro).
New Hotel - Great Location
We have stayed at the New Hotel several times. It isn't fancy, but it's a good two star hotel. The staff is helpful, friendly and multilingual, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's a perfect base for rail travelers (Gare de Nord with chunnel connections to UK and trains to Belgium across the street and Gare de l'Est a few blocks away). There is good food at reasonable prices in the area (especially near Gare de l'Est ). We don't always use the air-conditioning, cable TV or internet access, but it's nice to have them. We think the breakfast room is attractively atmospheric.
We stayed at the New Hotel because of its proximity to the Guar du Nord (train station) and also the proximity to the subway stop...about 20 steps out the door. The hotel is directly across the street from the train station. The rooms were good, clean and comfortable and even had an elevator - but nothing fancy. The breakfast was edible, but the breakfast ROOM which was in the basement was incredibly stinky. Must be located close to a sewer pipe. I would recommend the hotel for budget travelers.
