We had a lovely first stay at the Le Citizen Hotel and I'm sure it wasn't the last. The double room (with a super comfy bed!) was spacious, fresh, clean, contemporary Nordic chic with a view towards Canal Saint-Martin and the buzz over there. The breakfast tasty in a nice environment, and the staff super! It was easy to get to the hotel (from metro Jaques Bonsergent a 5 min walk) and there was a lot of small, really nice restaurants in the neighborhood. If you go to Paris, stay at this hotel!
Wow where do I even begin? This place is fantastic.
Location – along Canal Saint-Martin, an extremely vibrant and up and coming area with great restaurants and a wonderful vibe.
Rooms – we booked the smaller room for 19 nights. The design was brilliant as it allowed for us to still have some storage space. The beds were extremely comfortable and we absolutely loved the rain showerhead. The view of the canal was wonderful. The room was always clean and these were always fresh still and sparkling water in our fridge. Cleaning staff was very meticulous and the room was always very clean.
Breakfast – All items are included with the room rate. I had the best French toast! All items were made to order and always very fresh. I especially loved to avocado toast and the freshly squeezed orange juice. We often skipped lunch due to being so full.
On site restaurant – I recommend popping in for lunch or Happy hour/tapas. The food was fresh and had a unique South African flare. Kudos to the Chef. The sesame chicken and the cauliflower dish were my two favourites!
Staff – all were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They also were happy to assist us with anything we needed, even if it was not related to the hotel or our room. They helped me find a 24 hour pharmacy when I need it, helped us with cell phone issues we were having etc. The staff were all very charming and helpful and really brought our Parisian experience to a whole other level. We would love to come back and see them all again.
Bottom line: cosy hotel with exceptional service in a very trendy area. What’s not to like? We are already saving our pennies to come back and will not consider staying anywhere else!
Thank you Sophie and Team, hope to be back soon!
We have just returned from a 9 night stay in this hotel. on arrival we were upgraded to a small suite and made to feel very welcome. The style of the room was clean and modern. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. Each room is provided with an ipad which provides access to the internet and is preloaded with lots of information about the area. The breakfast was really good, eggs pancakes were made to order. Freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit were also available. We enjoyed the film service on the TV which was a great way to relax after a busy day sightseeing.
The hotel is in a good location beside the Saint Martin canal. Great place for picnic.There are lots of interesting bars and restaurants nearby. The nearest metro station Jaques Bonsergent is a 5 minute walk away.
To summarise this is lovely hotel with good facilities, helpful staff in a great location. I would definitely stay there again.
