The pictures I saw posted online led me to believe this was a very nice hotel with private Terrance's and views of the Eiffle Tower. The rooms were not spacious or special. The bed was comfortable and we had a big window but no air circulation and the room had just been painted and smelled awful. While it is close to the train station on which we arrived it's far from everything else. The sourrounding area didn't feel safe. Two staff members were especially nice but all others were not.

I loved my room on the 5th floor because the windows opened directly onto a tiny balcony nestled in the tree leaves.

Very handy to the station, rooms were very clean and quiet. Great to have air conditioning when its so hot! Pain to have to carry your bags up narrow windy stairs but that's Paris!

My only complaint is that the room was very cold and the radiator didn't work.

Easy to find. Clean and good value. Except lots of traffic and ambulances at night (close to hospital). Quite loud if you're on the side facing street.

One of the nicest places I've stayed during my four month travel around Europe! Location is convenient with buses and metro near by, not at all "seedy" like some of the reviews may have mentioned. The hotel itself was beautiful and clean, and we were upgraded for no extra cost! Staff was friendly and helpful and the wifi worked great. They also conveniently held my luggage all day even after checkout. I definitely recommend this place for your next stay in Paris!

I had a wonderful stay at Avalon Hotel in Paris. Staffs are very professional and helpful. They put me on a spacious room with comfy bed. Location is perfect! close to International Eurostar Train Nord Station. I would like to stay in this hotel again and even recommend to all my friends.

The area was a bit ghetto. Insufficient signage so we couldn't find our room as it was behind an unmarked closed door. Room stank a bit when we got back. Lift felt like it was going to fall.

THE HOTEL WAS ONLY 5 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE PARIS NORD & LYON STATIONS, FREE UNLIMITED WIFI. ALWAYS HOT WATER, ROOMS WERE CLEAN BUT NOT VERY BIG( NOT LITTLE EITHER), GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. THE STAFF MEMEBERS ARE HELPFUL BUT THE OLD MAN IN THE EVENING IS NOT OFFERING TO HELP YOU BUT HE WILL HELP IF YOU ASK. WILL BE BACK .

Had a great time. Close to many transport options, all amenities required in room, with a clean ensuite. Only issue was with the closed window it was too hot, with the open window it was too loud. Choose what works! I went with hot. I would return again as the quality was fantastic, but the price is a little steep. You get what you pay for.

The staff weren't rude, but not very friendly or welcoming either. We found Paris in general to not be very welcoming to tourists (or maybe it was because we were Americans).

Made a mistake of booking in advance!!! I paid 192 Euros for 2 nights in a standard twin room, but when we got there, I found out that the rate on that day was in fact 140 Euros for the 2 nights. We tried to get the receptionist to change the payment amount to no avail. For a student, 52 Euros is ALOT of money!!! Moreover, we called Avalon Hotel the day before we arrived and the receptionist told us that our due amount was 142 Euros. Hence we were pretty confused with the situation!!

It would be very good if the room can provide a portable fan especially during summer time.
