I don't usually bother with hotel reviews - I am pretty certain this is my first ever. Keep in mind I am a person who has slept in their car dozens of times. I also frequently camp in a tent in the winter, in Canada. So I am not necessarily hard to please. The WORST part of the hotel is... More

This was my worst hotel experience ever and I've traveled a lot. The hotel is very unusual. The room reminded me of a classroom for pre kinder kids. The mattress was basically on the floor and to watch television I had to do it from the bed. But the worst part was the rude behavior by the afternoon manager. There... More

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback about your experience at Hi Matic Hotel. We are very concerned to learn that the decoration was not to your taste, despite the fully description on our website. The PC located in the reception is not a self-service one. It is actually the workstation of our receptionist... More

So sorry to see so many average reviews. It's a great place for young people, with limited budget. Great location, rooms were clean and fancy. "Organic" breakfast was an extra, that not all hotels were including in price. I would recommend this place for travelers in their twenties.

Much too small for my taste. To get to the toilet or shower you must step over the mattress on the floor. There was not enough room to sit at the fixed 'desk'. I had to sit at an angle. Lighting is inadequate for reading. I don't think I have ever seen a light bulb that dim. Wi-fi was good.... More

Thank you for the compliments about the staff Matic hi :). Indeed, the strength of a hotel, it was his staff and service, is not it?. When you say that the staff is less "useful" to check out, this is actually the check out was so just thought (simply handing over the key automatically in the terminal). Again, your comment... More

I stayed at the Hotel with my girlfriend for two nights and it did meet my expectations, which were not necessarily high for this Hotel.

While on a business trip in Paris, I had to extend my stay with one day and one customer visit near the Bastille, and this place intrigued me. The location is good, public transport, including hire bicycle station just on the spot. Music clubs and bars are all just next-door, average age "before the kids", stimulating for a person "after...

We picked this hotel for a 5-night stay based on price and location - but we were also intrigued by the quirky concept. In reality it's not that quirky, and some of the 'eco' ideas don't quite stand up; however, with some caveats it's a great place to make your base in Paris. Location is perfect, with three Metro stations... More

Interesting concept "ikea" style rooms. Hotel is 8mins from Charonne Station, and about 15mins from Bastille. Rooms - are reasonable clean but small, big enough for a couple with not much luggage and who are not 6ft plus! The rooms are small futon mats which you roll out to sleep on and roll up during the day. Little clothes storage... More

I stayed at Hi Matic hotel recently on a business trip. I decided to book there as I have been fed up with my usual hotels near Porte Maillot and thought I would try something totally different on the other side of Paris.
