great strategic location!
I chose a deluxe studio room which was only a little extra in cost to a standard studio. It was well worth it as the view I wanted was guaranteed (the fountain view), there was a sofa in the room with some added extras. The view was great! Also, the location was perfect. It was right next to the Les Halles metro station and the Chatelet area with easy access to most locations. I used the Eurostar and it was only one station away from the Gare du Nord terminal - much better than getting the plane. The staff was more than helpful and very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped with general information about Paris - for example where to find certain restaurants etc. There is a seating area near reception with a free tea, coffee etc machine, TV, toilets. There were also complementary umbrellas at the main entrance for when it was raining. The Citadines is an excellent type of accommodation, as you can use the kitchen facilities to cook or just make cups of tea. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, a microwave and even dishwasher. There are supermarkets on the doorstep to get supplies. The area is well served with everything you need. Fabulous!
