This hotel offered all you need for a city break stay in Paris - nice, modern rooms, well-located in the Rue Amelot and well-served by the metro and great value for money. Walking distance to Bastille and Place des Vosges and the surrounding area quite interesting and not full of tourists.

A good option for staying in Paris and a great one for staying in Le Marais. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, central but not on a noisy street, the Bastille de Launay has everything you want as an active tourist to enjoy Paris! This was my first trip to Paris in which I did not stay at the Latin Quarter and... More

Would I recommend this place? Absolutely. Here's why: - Location: close to Le Marais, Places des Vogues, Canal St Martin. Great place to stay in Paris. - Price: good for the location. Marais is not cheap - Room: small (this is Paris) but clean and well maintained. If you are in Paris, all you need is just a good bed... More

This hotel is situated in a relative quiet small street near Marais. The personal were very friendly and although my reading lamp didn't work on arrival, they called the electrician as soon as it was possible to repair it and apologised profusely. The coffee was the best I've had at a breakfast buffet in a hotel in the twenty years... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, would NOT call this 3 star. the room was smaller than rooms in NYC and Tokyo, where i paid half the price and had much better locations. Room service was simply a microwave sandwich or snack delivered to your room (that we had to microwave ourselves!) so if you get in late go somewhere else.... More

This hotel was a great find - best place I've stayed in Paris, excellent value for money, and the staff were absolutely delightful. Wholeheartedly recommend. The only slight issue was the striong smell of paint in my bedroom but that was only because they'd just decorated so really a very minor quibble!

I have always found Parisian levels of service to be very high and this hotel was no exception. Friendly and courteous staff made a great first impression on arrival and were helpful throughout the stay. The hotel and rooms were spotless and the bed incredibly comfortable. Some people have said the rooms were small, well yes they are not spacious... More

The hotel is located in one of the hip and cool city areas: Le Marais. Lovely dinning opportunities and lot's of shops. Walking distance to the Louvre. The room is small but recently renovated so everything was very clean. Staff is friendly as well. We stayed for one night and didn't stayed for breakfast, so no opinion on that. Will... More
