    Take Care

    from

    We had booked two rooms 3 months prior to our visit. Arrived late evening but hotel overbooked so we were sent to another hotel for the night and returned the next day to take up the rest of our stay.

    Rooms basic but reasonably clean - hotel advertises satellite TV but I couldn't find any channels on our TV, just white noise. Telephone in room also didn't work.

    No towels in room on last night. Asked receptionist for towels, who explained a problem with the cleaning but would provide towels in 20 minutes. We were still waiting the following morning when we left.

    If all you want is something basic, to use as a base and can put up with polite but totally incompetent staff I suppose this hotel is ok.

    Don't do it!

    from

    I booked a room in hotel altona for a fews nights but I only spent one night there and that was too long. I would not recommend this hotel. The staff were very ignorant and had hardly any english. The lift was broken and no one even offered help with our bags up the three flights of narrow winding stairs. The room looked like it had been broken into at some stage and security was not one of their top priorities. The room was skanky to say the least, the T.V. didnt work and there was a view of backs of buildings. We didnt feel safe and I couldnt bare to stay another night. The area looked like the film 28 days later. There are no shops or resturants nearby and you have to get the metro everywhere and you are lucky then to find a decent place to eat. When we cancelled the rest of our stay we had problems getting our deposit back and there should not have been any. Overall I cant stress enough not to go here no matter how cheap you want a hotel. This hotel is classed as 3 star and is not even 1 star. Dont believe the pictures this hotel is a disaster. Just don't do it!

    Great

    from

    Very frendly staff, very basic room but not there for a long time, if you like a cup of tea or coffee take a kettle etc. Clean small rooms. would stay again, great value for money.

    Convenient Connection

    from

    We visited Paris August 2004 and stayed at the Hotel Altona. It is just five minutes walk from the metro station Gare du Nord, which is directly connected to Charles de Gaulle airport by fast train. Very central location also for tasting French cuisine, buying souvenirs (Sacre Coeur) and siteseeing .

    Rooms are clean (clean sheets and bath etc) and though a bit cramped, OK with light luggage.

    Serves good continental breakfast. Helpful, friendly staff.

    Internet connection was "out of order" .

    Not Bad and Cheap

    from

    The hotel was very cheap and a very short distance from the metro and walking distance from sacrecure and monmarte. The room was a good size and had a tv, the bathroom was also very clean. However some of the bedsheets were not very clean, and the overall decor of the room was quite shabby. However the staff were quite helpful. Not bad for two nites and very near gard de nord station, the hotel also allows you to leave your luggage in the lobby.

    Cheap, clean but shabby

    from

    We stayed at the Altona Hotel on the 19th and 20th June, 2004. We wanted a cheap break and so didn't have too many expectations! The Hotel bedding was clean, also the bathroom but the room itself was very shabby and in need of a good overhaul - damp on the walls and ceiling and a large crack on one wall, paint peeling and dirty. The theme was the same throughout the Hotel and had we been staying longer than 2 nights, we would not have stayed here. In its favour, the Metro was a very short distance away and only one stop from the Gare du Nord and the RER for the Airport. Also within walking distance is Monmartre.

    Not Recommended

    Terrible!

    Rooms were not clean.

    Small, yet friendly & cheap

    from

    We stayed in the hotel Altona in Feb. 03 and while the rooms were small, for the price you couldn't find better in Paris. The location was a bit out of the way, but near a metro station so we still were able to go wherever we wanted to. The hotel is also within walking distance of the Gare du Nord, which has several cheap cafes, clothing shops, and currency exchanges around it. The area is a bit run down, though during the day there are several markets open and many pedestrians around. The staff, though not knowing much English, were very friendly and let us store our baggage after checkout until our flight. The room was small and tidy, and had its own bathroom and TV. We paid $50 a night including breakfast and I think similar deals still exist if you look on the internet. The only complaint I had is that the rooms weren't very soundproofed and the windows didn't open. The view was nice though, and the area was quiet at night. Overall, it was a great place to have as our base, though if you're planning to spend a lot of time in your room or looking for a lot of amenities in a hotel you should pay the extra money and go elsewhere.

    Hello Paris! We had a fantastic time today in this wonderful city. This morning we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and made our way into the city. We took the RER Train into the city changing onto the Metro to take us to our first destination, the Notre Dame Cathedral. Nathan and Traci researched numerous forums and websites about the best options for travelling around Paris and in the end the easiest and most cost effective was ...

    ... along with coffees and orange juice. This is nice. Parisan's don't eat much breakfast. They usually have a coffee and croissant. I basically Loaded up on everything. I am starving, since I managed to ask for a Nutella Crepe for dinner last night... Haha Finished breakfast and put 2 apples in my bag. 1st stop today is Le Catacombs de Paris. I walk to the metro and proceed to buy a carnet of metro tickets. Not a bad price. You get 10 metro tickets for 13€. Be ...

    Early the morning of the 30th we packed up, got diesel in the car, and dropped it off - 2nd car safely returned with no scratches! The rental car place held our luggage so we could walk around Reims until time for our train. We found a place for coffee and pastries. David got a raisin sweet roll and I got a Tarte de Sucré - basically like a flat doughnut. Cannot wait to have an egg breakfast! Once in the Gare (train station) we had about 1.5 hour ...

But found out there had been an 'accident'. So the trains werent running. Talk about incapable people, noone was informing anyone that the trains werent running or what to ...

    Crowded Sacre Coeur

    ... this reason we decided not to go into the basilica, but i feel the area itself is just as much the attraction as the imposing basilica. Amazingly, you can even catch a funicular to the top of the stairs rather than walking the 10 or so steps to the top yourself! After a little while relaxing we pushed through the hoards of tourists who were flooding out of the metro station to retreat to our little apartment.
