Neighbourhood
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.

Beautiful hotel! Great neighborhood, close to the Metro. Quaint restaurants and right on the canal.. so lots of Parisians hanging out doing what they do - relaxing, etc.... The restaurant was good, but there were many neighboring restaurants for the authentic French meal....

Dear Korstick, First, we would like to thank you to share us your feedback. It is very important to us to know the opinion of our guest about their stay to improve the quality of our services. We are happy to learn that you liked the hotel area and the size of your room on the 6th floor. We do apologize for the inconvenience you suffered during your stay when you discovered the stains on the carpet and the bad odors. I can perfectly understand that it can be very disturbing for have good time and to enjoy the room. Regarding your feedback about the front desk team, we really do apologize.

Be assured that we take in consideration all your comments about the hotel and that we will do our best to improve what is bad. Kind Regards, Inès, Guest Relation
