I'm a little hesitant to divulge a well kept secret. Bastille de Launay is a great hotel,slightly off the beaten track but close to the best things in Paris. Rooms are small but immaculate,good beds and showers and the staff is very helpful. Breakfast not included but worth the 12 euro supplement.

I was so pleased with this hotel, from the moment that I stepped inside the door. Fransico was the name of... More

We learned later there is another stop on that line close by, but it seemed like just the same walking distance. It would have been... More

We had a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean (although quite small) and the staff was extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again. The area was great. The hotel was walking distance to a variety of restaurants, museums and shopping.
