Great staff. Clean rooms. Impeccable bathrooms. Great beds. Small elevator. A little far from the Metro but fine and safe place to walk at any time day or night. Breakfast was fantastic.... It is a small venue but the place was perfect. I am planning to return in the fall of 2016

Rooms were typical Parisian size but so clean and good to look at. Our room was so quiet at night which meant a good nights sleep. Lovely powerful shower and a fantastic view with our own balcony. The buffet style continental breakfast was just perfect. The staff were very helpful with good recommendations of places to eat. The hotel is... More

We travel to Paris often and this was the first time we stayed in the Bastille area. We had lots of fun exploring new areas, including the viaduct arts area with the garden promenade above. It was only 5 blocks to the Marais district, and the bus access was great. We loved the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over new year. Close to the station and easily accessible to many local attractions. The hotel is small yet modern with fully equipped rooms with everything you need. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here in December 2015. Lovely warm welcome on arrival. We stayed in a first floor room, which was comfortable, but small. Nevertheless the bedroom facilities were fine, and the bathroom had a good shower. Breakfast was ok each morning.

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

Neighborhood Profile
Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
