Has anyone stayed in these hotels...seem really reasonable...but if they're clean I may try one in St. Denis....anyone? thanks! Marilyn
Years ago on a school trip I stayed in a Formula 1 Hotel. It was clean and simple and a nice enough place to stay. Don't expect anything too fancy, but I'd recommend the place.
Formule 1 hotels are basic, but clean and comfortable budget hotels, part of the Accor hotels chain. One drawback might be if you don't like going down the hall to the toilet and shower. If you want an ensuite, try the next step up in their hotel chain, Etap, or the step after than, Ibis. All can be searched at www.accorhotels.com. We've stayed at all three types and, other than the bathroom situation, they're all great places to crash at the end of the day. The other concern would be the location. Saint Denis is outside the Paris Metro system, so you'd have to take the RER into central Paris. Possibly look for one located within Metro range....you may pay a few Euro more, but you'll save that on transportation costs.
