The hotel is located a few metro stops from the city's main tourist centre and is close to the Bois de Vincennes, where you can enjoy a morning run or a lakeside picnic with your children. From the hotel, you can walk to the centre of Paris along the ancient Roman viaduct, transformed into an elevated garden best known as the "coulée verte". Numerous bus and metro lines near the hotel offer quick, easy access to the city's top tourist attractions.
Despite being on the edge of Paris, Porte Doree is quite close to many type of public transportation - Tram, Metro, RER - hence I found it very convenient. Wifi was better than quite a few other Paris hotels I've tried over the past few years.
The room was not very big and, being located on the last (4th) floor, had some sloped, low-ish ceilings which might have been a problem if I were taller - luckily, I'm quite short. :o)
Extremely friendly and helpful receptionist offered me two glasses of delicious fruit juice at arrival when I told him I'm thirsty ( I arrived straight from Eurostar , very tired by taxi late in the evening , in the pouring rain ) . I had wonderful comfortable room with beautiful decor ( antics and real oil paintings ! ) beds were very comfortable ( I stayed alone in double room trying them both ) , all spotlessly clean , there were even toys for kids in the baskets in the wardrobe and magazines to read in another basket. In mezzanines book shelves and vases with flowers ; this great hotel have wonderful atmosphere and style of passed time , just as I love it. I am giving maximum rating for all ! True gem !
There was nothing I didn't liked during my stay and complaints of others about noise of metro passing underneath are greatly exaggerated as it was not louder than traffic outside ( well..i stayed on the first floor with windows on the courtyard and it was late evening , but slight vibrations caused by metro were not disturbing me at all and after midnight it has stopped anyway ). no complaints at all then :) It's also near the metro station and was very handy for me as early in the morning I just took metro to get to the Gare de Lyon railway station to catch train to Nice.It was really handy :) We had laugh with receptionist when I told him I'm Polish as he found my name Arabic sounding ( he's North African I think , really friendly person)
twenty four hour reception
messy roadworks at front of hotel but realise this is beyond your control.also the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in room
Located right across Stephane Vandermeersch Bakeries.
Metro is audible from the ground floored rooms which makes it a little noisy.
loved the decor of the hotel hallways and original features, nice pictures and tasteful furnitures. Friendly staffs, only one minute to get to on the metro.
It is a bit noisy as I heared the metro during night time.(!!)
