Shabby but friendly

You do get what you pay for. My friend and I were on a budget and this hotel suited our needs. Reception: the people were friendly and the lobby has free wifi (always a plus). Lobby is small but has a few comfy seats and a TV in the corner. Room: our room was somewhat shabby, with one bright blue wall and an orange surf-themed decal on the wall as decoration. The TV looked new but hadn't been set up - not that it mattered as we were barely there. Bathroom: essentially clean and up-to-date, although the loo appeared to be slightly leaky and some of the tiles were a bit cracked. Location: about four minutes' walk from Gare du Nord, so very easy for Eurostar travellers. Also very close to Barbés Rochechouart, ten minutes from Sacré Coeur and with good connections to the heart of the city. The main disadvantage was the fact that the area round there isn't so friendly & I'd suggest to travellers to keep their senses alert, simply as a security measure. The hotel is in the 10th arrondissement, nearly the 18th; I've lived in the 4th which you really can't beat for friendly and unintimidating. On the whole, it was perfectly ok, but I don't think I'd stay there again.

The best thing about my stay was...

The proximity to good public transport connections

Booking messed up

They had booked me in for November instead of October (their fault not mine) so they took me to another hotel-same type but ended up with a smoking room which I didn't want. Hotel staff were apologetic and personally took me to other hotel near by. Lots of men around at night in the area trying to sell things which made me feel a bit uncomfortable, a few gangs hanging round the metro too. Close to metro stations so that was a bonus.

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to metro station with easy access to city centre attractions and Roissy Airport Bus

Very eventful

Convenient position for Gare du Nord,its a bit rundown but has had some improvements which are mainly evident in the entrance area. When you go to your room you then get a true picture of the run down state of the building and rooms,worn carpets.flaking plaster on walls and ceiling and a general impression of a poor hostel.On entering the rooms you will find very cramped conditions and the same worn out feel from the corridors and stairs. Our party of 6 went out and had a great night in Paris but on our return 2 of us found our room was next door to a disco and it was impossible to sleep so we had to sleep in the room of 2 others in the party. The more serious complaint was one member of the party woke up on the first morning to find she was covered in bites(bed bugs). The management were told but had no available rooms to offer as a replacement.

The best thing about my stay was...

The breakfast
2/10 Okay

grotty

booked for 1 night stay while waiting for eurostar home, read some of the reviews and thought it would be ok for 1 night. big mistake, upon entering you could see how bad it was, dirty. went up to room and as soon as we opened door there was a large brown stain on carpet, which had not been hoovered in weeks. windows would not close properly large hole in bathroom wall. the grottiest hotel ever, upgrade if you can. we didnt spend the night we found another hotel across from the station which was really nice. the outside of the altona hotel is the nicest thing about it. needs a major facelift and a good cleaner.

The best thing about my stay was...

finding a nice clean hotel across from gare du nord

Review of Altona Hotel

This is a no frills hotel suitable for anyone wanting a fairly cheap stay in Paris.Basic but comfortable rooms,adequate breakfast and a decent location for travelling around.Don't believe the the bit about sound-proof rooms,this is one of the noisiest hotels I've stayed in(but it did seem to be full of school parties,so perhaps we were unlucky!)If you can afford to go more up-market I'd do it.

8/10 Great

Ideal for cheap cuty break

We were booked into the Altona but were actually taken to a different ten minutes walk away which was actually a much nicer area and we had a lovely little balcony. The Sltona when we arrived was surrounded by noisy groups and people were leaning out of various rooms and shouting to each other so yes you get what you pay for but im very glad we were moved. Location is perfect for the Metro which at £1.50 a trip is the perfect way of getting about.

Value with Basic service

Our stay was from 04/15/09-04/22/09 accommodations were adequate and fair for price paid. breakfast was fine, croissants and bread was fresh. if you are pinching pennies to go on vacation this would be the place to go. It is centrally located near the rail stations. However, if you can afford to upscale, you should do so. It pays to look around. The people who run the hotel are very accommodating and helpful. My husband had the unfortunate experience of being pickpocketed on our last day. The Manager of our hotel was very helpful in getting online to get the necessary phone numbers to cancel our credit cards. Helpful hint; make sure your money is secured while traveling in Paris.
