Just off the busy road between two metro stops and very close to the Bastille Metro. The rooms are small but all the rooms in Paris are small. What was most impressive was the room was very clean with a very comfortable bed.

I realized that Paris real estate is hard to come by, but the rooms there were tiny! Good sized bathrooms, lots of hot water. The breakfast was very nice, in the basement of the hotel that looks like a cave. Great selection of food. Location of this hotel is great, close to restaurants, the metro, and bus lines.

Excellent hotel! This is a little gem. Spotlessly clean, beautiful room, helpful staff, close to the metro, (but we walked to the main sites of interest,) easy walking to the centre of the Marais with all it's quaint streets and diverse restaurants. The perfect place to return to after a day site seeing.

I was so happy that we booked the Bastille de Launay and our stay there really helped make our Paris trip special. The room itself was immaculately clean and quiet with a comfortable bed - it looked exactly like the rooms in the pictures shown by the hotel - brightly coloured walls and white bedding. The room was a little... More

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.

We stayed one night here on our way back to England from Bordeaux. I reserved this hotel on the basis of previous reviews. It was ideally situated for the Marais district of Paris. It was spotlessly clean, very quiet and the 2 receptionists who spoke excellent English could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was traditional french. I would not... More

I stay in hotels as a part of my employment - so when I take a holiday, I find it hard to avoid it feeling like I'm still at work, unless I book in to some out-of-this-world 5star+ hotel. I was so pleased with this hotel, from the moment that I stepped inside the door. Fransico was the name of... More

We stayed just 1 night on a last minute stop to Paris. While the hotel is close to a metro stop, it is several blocks from the Bastille stop that the airport metro stops along. 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
