Best hotel to stay in Paris: 25 Hours Hotel Paris Terminus Nord

My personal highlight: Paris Gare du Nord is as colorful as an African bazaar: a comfy, cosmopolitan mix of cultures and urban refuge just in front of Gare du Nord

You know I am a big fan of the 25 Hours Hotel. They offer surprising spots in several European cities. Their living concepts are designed to make travellers feel at home away from home. It’s a company philosophy, you get to feel right away when entering the door. The attention and dedication of their staff, the extras in the room as the best hairdryer in the world, or the bike you get for free to explore the city. Many little details make your stay pleasurable. Every hotel has its own story, so let me share with you the 25 Hours Hotel Paris Terminus Nord!

This is 25 Hours Hotel Paris Terminus Nord

The neighbourhood in District 10 is vibrant and colourful. Local heroes serve as the inspiration for the interior design concept. This is why throughout the hotel – in the lobby’s murals, in the objects on the shelf in your room, you cross this relaxing and playful vibe. From Gare du Nord you are close to every tourist attraction such as Montmartre’s Sacré-Coeur, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe.

The rooms feature colourful African-style elements and start with a size of 12 – 16 sqm until 30 – 33 sqm. My room had a super comfy bed. The cute teddy in the pic slept close to me 🙂  Thirsty or a little hungry? Use their mini-bar for free! Rain showerhead, Smart TV, Freitag bag, UE Boom Bluetooth speakers, and free high-speed Wi-Fi of course included.


The day starts best with a pain o Chocolat, right? Their breakfast choices offer much more, either fresh fruits, salmon, or omelettes to only name some. Make a reservation for dinner at their Neni restaurant to enjoy the Israeli-Mediterranean cuisine designed by Haya Molcho.


  • Profit to discover Paris on wheels by using their Schindelhauer bikes!
  • The 1. floor has a cosy working table, where you can spend some time in an open space to catch up on your mails surrounded by that vivid colourful African design.
  • 25hours Hotel Terminus Nord offers meeting and event facilities in close proximity to the Gare du Nord. These spaces offer an exceptional view over the historic railway station.  The hotel has two meeting rooms for up to 8 and 10 people which are directly connected to the Restaurant NENI Paris.
  • In the mood for a drink before heading to Montmartre? Have a stop at the Sape Bar and enjoy a Negroni. The design of the bar is made of bronze-coloured mosaic glass. The interior is classy and colourful reflecting once more the African style.

I felt a lot at home here. Thank you to the staff for this wonderful experience and for being part of the Lovefoodish travel guide. Find more of my 25 hotel experiences here.
