This is more of a hostel that has been turned into a hotel. It's not terrible, but just very small. The room was clean but very small for 2 people. I was sharing with someone else and the bathroom was pretty much in the same room, we asked to change on the first night but they said it was all... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Hi-matic last November for a long weekend. We had read the reviews, and knew what to expect, but the reality of actually staying in one of the Hi-matic tiny cramped rooms was quite extreme. Worst that the lack of space (we had a mattress on a sort of crash mat set up on... More

Dear Elcy96, we thank you for your review on trip advisor website and we regret that your stay was not up to your expectations. This concept, is like "japan style" with a futon on the floor and optimising a relatively small space (like a lot of rooms in Paris) .Thids kind of room with a particular concept, is indeed appreciated...

I stayed in the HI MATIC, with my son, very friendly staff, very clean, the hotel was next door to a bakery and across the road from a supermarket, loads of cafes and restaurants and only 5 minutes from the metro. I loved the hotel and would stay here again

Hi There Mary ! we are really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. This concept has nothing to do with traditional rooms and we try every day to share this idea with our customers. Indeed, we've got an Ideal location next to the famous "place de la Bastille" which allows you to take advantage at the most of... More

The cleaning staff left the medication from the previous visitor behind the matrass, which shows that the room was not cleaned properly. The Food wasn't organic (As mentioned in their descripton) and also verrrry small. There was nobody to change the batteries of the safe, even after asking two times, so we had to hide everything. Our room was so... More

Stayed for 5 nights, was very comfortable and although it was very basic it had everything we needed. The shower was in the room and everything was very confined however we wernt 'pushed for space' as the bed area was very big and nice to chill out on. The staff were very friendly, didn't use many of the hotel facilities... More

Stayed one night, and very much enjoyed the efficiency and playful design of this budget hotel. The room was tiny, but packed everything in. The shower and toilet cubicles were within the room; the bed was formed of futon mattresses, and every detail is designed with fun, space efficiency and colour. We slept very well, though disturbed by rowdy people... More

This is not a hotel that I would recommend to anyone aside from people in their 20s or early to mid 30s, for the hotel has a style that caters to the mentally and physically young. The bright colors and low, japanese futon style beds are fun and great for people in this age demographic, but I imagine most older... More

We stayed here for one night and booked very last minute on a Saturday as we wanted to extend our stay in Paris. The price is decent for hotels in Paris and this one is very clean, we had breakfast included and the staff were very friendly. It is a cross between a hostel and a budget hotel. But doesn't...

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
