Cheap hotels near Gare de l'Est in Paris, France

Located in the 10th arrondissement just east of the even-busier Gare du Nord train station, the Gare de l’Est is one of the oldest and largest railroad terminals in the city.

The Gare de l’Est first opened its doors (and tracks) in 1849. Marked by an impressive main entrance and foyer, the terminal was also a first departure on the Orient Express train going to Istanbul. The station served to transfer French troops during World War I.

Today, the station sees lots of high-speed TGV action, as well as plenty of SNCF regional and national trains. The “Gare de l’Est” Metro station serves lines 4, 5 and 7.

Hotels near Gare de l’Est: Not surprisingly, there are lots and lots of budget hotels located near both the Gare de l’Est and the Gare du Nord. Those hotels in our list closest to the Gare de l’Est are listed below, although you can click into our “Gare du Nord” neighborhood to see many more options.

Remember that hotels around big European train stations tend to not be the most romantic options you’ll have in the city. The reasons to stay here are usually limited to two things: convenience (you’re catching an early-morning train or arriving late, and want to have a hotel near the station), and price (these are often among the cheapest options in the city).

This neighborhood is busy and can seem a bit bleak, with all of that station hustle-and-bustle. However, the area is well-served by the Metro, and it’s easy to roll off to other parts of town. The Gare du Nord RER station makes it easy to get to Charles de Gaulle airport on RER Line B.
