Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Styles Asnieres Centre Asnieres-sur-Seine
Little gem !
Bedrooms/bathrooms are small but rooms are spotless. Staff could not have been more helpful and buffet breakfast was excellent. 5 mins from the train station and nice bright suburban area with restaurants and shops. Would definitely stay here again as it only takes 20 mins to Paris by train/metro.
So much fun for so little cash!
I was a student studying abroad in cambridge, england for the summer when we decided to make a quick trip to paris--that turned into a full week.
we stayed at one horrible hostel and decided to never go that route again but also we were broke and didnt couldnt afford a hilton...so we looked through lastminute and found the hotel wilson.
VERY CLEAN, AMAZING BREAKFAST, FABULOUS and HELPFUL staff. not even 5 minutes from the SNCF rail station, and located near amazing boulangeries and a grocery store and cafes.
--one downer--we were told to take the asnieres metro stop so if you DO stay here, take any line to Gare St Lazare and then take an SNCF train up to the next stop and it will be Asnieres. It took no time at all getting into the city and they don't check for tickets on SNCF trains. Staff helped us get to EuroDisney for the cheapest deal among other things.
Charming area, felt very safe. Its kind of noisy if you get a room that faces the street but its relatively cool in the hot July and the breakfast is absolutely AMAZING. You'll love it!

An outstanding place to stay in a quiet suburb of Paris.
My wife and I hail from Texas, travel to Europe once a year, and stayed at the Hotel Wilson on an airline deal for a week in early November of 2005. This place is a travelers treasure, offering great service, value, and a friendly accomodating staff. The rooms are clean and much of the facility seems newly refurbished.
The facility is located about 5 minutes walk from the train terminal (exit clock side) down one of the most pleasant streets in the Paris area. At the end of a day spent battling the crowds on the Paris streets and metro stations returning to Asnieres and the Wilson was like coming home for the evening. A complimentary internet portal is provided in the lobby and the courtyard is an oasis of good landscape design. We'll be back.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October 05 and was pretty impressed. I based my choice on some of the reviews here. Recently the lobby and breakfast room have been refurbished to a high standard (stripped floors, flat screen TV's etc.) with a nice garden terrace area to sit in as well. They also have free internet access and I read that the hotel is WiFi enabled) Breakfast was 7-10am and the usual continental affair but very good. Rooms seem to have had a bit of a redecorate with new curtains and bed spreads. Staff on the desk were fluent and friendly and there is a luggage room to use if you have a late flight. Check in is 3pm but we turned up at noon and our room was ready. Check out is noon. Double rooms were 75 euro but you can get better deals on the web. The room was a little small but then again most seem to be in Paris. Also, you don't go to Paris to stay in the hotel all day do you? They were clean with a TV (BBC Prime and CNN are the English speaking chanels) but my only complaint was that the walls were a little thin and we could hear the (wall mounted) TV next door early in the morning. Also, for disabled travelers there is a lift to all floors but it is very small. You may just get a wheelchair in it but nobody else.
It is not central but all the better for it. It is on a quiet side road just off the high street. Here there are shops, bars, McDonalds etc. a proper little nice suburb, and a 2 min walk to the railway station (SNCF) at Asnieres. It is 1 stop (5 min) to Gare St Lazare with many connections on the RER and Metro. If you are coming from Charles De Gaulles airport allow 1 - 1.5 hours transfer time. Best way we found was to get the RER line B (blue) from the airport to Gares du Nord then walk through the station to RER Magenta (Magenta) for one stop to Gare St Lazare, the walk up to the Iles De France SNCF platforms and catch a train to Asnieres.
Journey times to Paris centre (e g Opera) from the station near the hotel take about 15 mins if you meet all the connections but trains are frequent and run until at least 12.30 am.
We bought a Paris Visite rail ticket at the airport that gives unlimited public transport travel plus some attraction discounts. By buying at the airport you will need the full 5 Zones and for 3 days it cost 37 euro but it is well worth it as you will use the trains alot.
In all, I would seriously consider staying here again if I was in Paris.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Wilson for 2 nights and were very impressed with the hotel. Although the room was small it was very clean and was a brilliant base for our weekend.
The breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Excellent train links into Paris, what more can you ask for?
Great place to stay to explore Paris
The Hotel Wilson in Asninères is a fantastic place to stay to explore Paris. It's only about 3 minutes from the SNCF station in Asnières, and from there it takes about 8 minutes to reach Paris Saint Lazare train station for connections to everywhere in Paris on the métro. The hotel staff is very friendly and welcoming and the rooms, although small, are inviting and perfectly adequate with all of the basic facilities that you need. There's a smart little breakfast room with a nice buffet breakfast (probably worthwhile taking) and a small (reasonably priced) bar. The town of Asninères itself is a good place to stay as it's so near to Paris, but it has it's own good selection of bars, restaurants, cafés, shops etc. meaning you can easily spend the evening there. It takes a good hour and a half or so to reach the hotel from Paris CDG airport, and I'd recommend buying a 'Paris Visite' ticket which enables you to unlimited travel on the metro, bus, RER, local SNCF services within the Ile de France and the funicular in Montmartre, for 1,3,5 or 7 days. Buy it at the airport as soon as you arrive so as to make it really worthwhile. Overall, a great value for money hotel in a great location.
Very Small Rooms
We were at this hotel for 4 days summer 2005, the rooms was very small, and the bathroom only had a shower which has no curtin and the shower wasn't hung up it was very annoying. The bed was also very uncomfortable. The evening staff were more helpful than the day time staff and the location means that there is a train ride into the metro station. However it was clean but we wouldn't be staying here again.
Do Not Take Infants
after reading the reviews of this hotel we were happy with it, it sounded ok had a nice price :) and generally we were not let down
the hotel location for me was fine 2 mins from asnieres train station close to some shops and resteraunts
we stayed here for 4 nights , 1 night we had a fight outside our room (on the main road), 1 night some rowdys from the petite paradise down end of the road but overall no problems at all and i dont think something which happens on a regular basis.
the site we booked from (last minute) said the hotel were very happy to accomodate children and now i can confirm CHILDREN not INFANTS, there was no cots / cribs at the hotel, the lift was a little too small for our buggy and one day we randomly got told by a grumpy member of staff we could not take the buggy into the dining room for breakfast,
paris in general in my opinion is not suitable for wheelchairs / buggys
anyway all in all the place was ok, try and get a room away from the main road.
Great for the price!
For what you pay for this hotel is good. The rooms are quite small, literally a bed and an en suite with little room anywhere else, although checking the floorplan it seems that some are bigger than others.
My girlfriend and myself had quite one of the smaller rooms it seemed, and due to the size of the bathroom (and the peculiar design of French showers wherby it sits on the same level as the rest of the bathroom, with no shower curtain etc) the floor in there had to be mopped with a towel whenever anyone had showered.
However, we did recieve a very large double glazed window (though the binmen did there best at about 4am everyday), a fairly comfortable but creaky bed, a tv, a skinny dressing mirror, a radio, ethernet connection, hairdryer, sort of work ledge and a very clean room.
The staff spoke more than enough English to direct us to places and offer advice. There was a nearby grocery store and supermarket, several restaurants, pizzerias all in a clean and safe (we had no trouble at all during our stay)
Breakfast was more expansive than I would have though and the dining room was modern and clean with a large plasma screen showing the news. The staff were very helpful and suggested places for us to go to. The station was less than 5 minutes walk away and the train to Gare St. Lazare was approxamtely 10-15minutes.
I believe for what we paid, our hotel was very good.
My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay in the Wilson Hotel. The hotel although only rating two star far outweighed this rating.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Although our room was small it was very clean and fresh with a nice bathroom.
The continental breakfast had a good variety.
The hotel was not in the centre of Paris but easily reached by train which only took about five minutes - a very regular service - costing 2 euros.
All in all a very pleasant hotel which my husband and I would recommend - and let me tell you we have had a few bad experiences.

... and I couldn't complain about anything. Show was flash and an experience. Considering when we buy something through a 3rd party you usually pay heaps more, it was a pleasant experience to pay less than the official site. Second day we decided to see the Bastille day parade. Waited for about an hour before the start, behind the 2nd barrier from the street. Watched people getting scanned for security to get behind first ...

We left the boys asleep as me met her friends at a restaurant near the Louvre. We had typical ham and cheese French sandwiches again. Love them! After lunch, we told the boys we would meet them at the Sacré Cœur at 2pm so we made our way there. We got there around 2:05 and the boys were no where to be seen. We were afraid the were still ...

The palace gardens are also massive. The rooms and decor were very elaborate and very similar to the Vatican museum. We figured out today that we are getting burnt out on museums and churches.

First up a visit to the Perigot shop for a couple of Christmann presents then Jeff wanted to visit the Boss store for jeans.

From the cruise we got to get close to a number of the buildings whilst hearing some additional history, most notably that ...
