Great hotel, front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent location, very clean and perfect for the price. Stayed in a room overlooking the courtyard and couldn't hear any street/other room noise all night. Exactly what I was looking for!

Great place to stay. Very close to Le Marais and Place de Vosges. Hotel is very clean and staff is extremely helpful. Most of the staff speaks French, English and Spanish. Walking distance from Bastille circle.

Great little hotel, in the Bastille region of Paris. Hotel is clean& friendly -- Not ground-breaking or anything like that but everything you need/want for a city break. We loved being in this area of Paris, because you could still walk to many of the sights etc, but it felt more "French" and not quite so touristy. So Yay! :-)

3 nights in Paris, October 2014. Booked a late trip to Paris and found this hotel, looked good and decent price. Yes, location in great and very good value. Clean but small rooms (yes, you are in Paris). Quiet location even if you get a room to the street. Breakfast with good selection, 12€ - good value for a hotel... More

As the hotel's responses to previous "terrible' ratings indicate, the hotel management is incapable of admitting its mistakes and the notion of "customer is always right" is foreign to them. I first reserved 2 nights through an online service then additional 2 nights when the very nice reception clerk Cristelle offered a discount after I found a sublet at a... More

We were very pleased with the location of this hotel. Close to many restaurants, Boulangerie Beaumarchais 28 which must not be missed! The room was comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. They even checked us in early after a long transatlantic flight. Also very convenient to La Marais district which was fun to explore, not as "touristy" as around... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for just one night, but the staff and lodgings made quite an impression. We had originally intended to arrive at the hotel right at check-in time, but the Air France cancellation of our flight due to the strike and the subsequent delay of our train due to flooding on the tracks got...

Was recommended by an old friend who now lives in France to stay at this Hotel. Well, what can I say? Its interior is stylish. The rooms quite trendy. The overall "feel" is comfortable and above all, friendly. ALL the staff, from the reception, dining, housekeeping, are just fabulous. The reception staff are as good as you will find anywhere...

I stayed in this charming 3 star hotel near the Bastille/ Le Marais area...within 2 minutes walk to metro stop Chenin Vert and 5 minutes for Bastille metro making it easy to access all of Paris' landmarks. I had a harrowing time meeting and finding my pre arranged transport so was a bit cranky..all that disappeared once I got to... More

had a standard room while in Paris for a day for business. The Staff is extremely helpful and "très sympa". The hotel is situated quite central, however not in the "middle" of the touristic city. All the venues are easy reachable by metro or even on foot. Quartier Marais is just 10-15 minutes walk away. The famous Brasserie Bofinger just... More
