  • I've been to many countries and never have I experienced such low standard generally speaking. The whole station looks like it's gunna collapse and it stinks of PISS everywhere. Not to mention certain...  more »
  • 早上6時從巴黎市中心到巴黎北站,北站地鐵內突然有人很熱情的想帶我們到車站,當然所指示的方向是錯的,如果跟了他後果不愖設想。但車站內的指示和査詢處很充足 
  • Not a patch on St Pancras, please bulldoze and start again! No redeeming feature, smelly, and not fit for purpose.

  • Fast-service burger chain. Decent if you are heading to the Eurostar without much time.
  • My fries were cold and the burger very small and nothing like the picture. I will go to the MacDonald's next door next time.
  • Far superior to McDonald's
  • Food, milkshake taste bad, couldn't complete it. Macdonalds is better and cheaper!
  • Unwelcoming staff, clearly they didn't like me asking if they had pomotions for students. Hm ok.
