The ibis Paris La Villette Cité des Sciences 19ème hotel is situated in northeast Paris, 547 yds from the Ourcq metro (line 5) and Corentin Cariou (line 7).

The hotel has 284 rooms, including 6 rooms for guests with reduced mobility, and free WIFI. Other amenities include 2 meeting rooms, an ibis Kitchen Pizza&Pasta restaurant, a bar, 24-hour snack service and parking (upon reservation).
The restaurant was nice, and had a variety of options to select. Close proximity to public transit (bus, metro, navette) Staff spoke a good amount of English
The room was not very spacious. The pitiful size of the room was only emphasized by the bathroom. I say bathroom because it contained a sink, toilet and shower - but it was the size of a closet. In order to enter the shower, the bathroom door must be open. An awkward dance involving three doors just to take a shower. This could have been easily corrected during the most recent remodel (probably in early 2000's) with a solid curved shower door that slides back in towards the shower. (Keep that in mind Ibis, next remodel you should look for those)
