In many cities, the idea of getting a hotel near a major train station isn’t an appealing one. But sometimes, whether it’s because those are the only hotels with vacancy during a particularly busy time or you just need to be close to a station for an early morning departure, staying near a train station is what you have to do. In Paris, there are several train stations scattered throughout the city – and one that many people end up staying close to is the Gare du Nord.
The Gare du Nord is the Paris end of the Eurostar train that connects the French capital with London (read more about how to get from Paris to London) – and although the neighborhood around the Gare du Nord isn’t exactly Paris’ loveliest, there are quite a few hotels nearby from which to choose if you need to stay nearby.
On the map below you’ll find a few hotels marked by blue icons that are either just down the street from the Gare du Nord or a few minutes’ walk from the station. You can find out more about each one by clicking on the icon itself on the map, or by scrolling down below the map to read a brief description of each property.
Hotels in Paris Near Gare du Nord Train Station
Paris Hotels Near Gare du Nord
Hotel Maubeuge Gare du Nord
The Hotel Maubeuge Gare du Nord is, as the name suggests, a stone’s throw from the Gare du Nord station. It’s a 2-star hotel with 30 rooms; they’re definitely on the small side, but for a short stay that may not be an issue. Amenities are limited, but each room has a private bathroom and there is an internet access point in the lobby. The hotel has an on-site bar and continental breakfast is served in the bar/dining room each morning.
Hotel de Paris Nord
The Hotel de Paris Nord is just down the street from the Gare du Nord station, and not far from the nearby Gare de l’Est station, too. The 2-star hotel has 42 rooms, each of which has a private bathroom (some with a bath tub, others with a shower). WiFi is available in the hotel for free, but you’ll need to pay extra for breakfast.
Hotel Eurostars Panorama
The Hotel Eurostars Panorama, part of the Eurostars hotel chain, is one that’s not right next door to Gare du Nord – but it’s a relatively short walk away. It’s a 3-star hotel with 43 rooms, and every room in the hotel has a private bathroom, air conditioning, and free WiFi – and many of the rooms have balconies. Breakfast is available, but costs extra.
Hotel Paris Liege
The Hotel Paris Liege is located just across from the Gare du Nord station. It’s a 2-star hotel with 34 rooms – most of which are small, but all of which have private bathrooms, air conditioning, and free WiFi. A continental breakfast is served every morning and is included with the price of the room.
The Hotel Kuntz is about 100 meters from the Gare du Nord station (and 300 meters from the Gare de l’Est station, too). It’s a 2-star hotel with 35 rooms – the rooms are sparsely decorated and small, but they have private bathrooms. And the rooms are definitely on the budget side, so you can’t complain too much about the lack of amenities. WiFi and breakfast are both available at the hotel, but both cost extra.
The Hotel d’Amiens is a 3-star hotel between Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est stations. There are 53 rooms, each of which has a private bathroom (some with a bath tub, some with a shower). WiFi is available at the hotel for a fee, but breakfast (served either in your room or in the breakfast room) is included with the price of your room.
