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.

This Hotel is located in the Marais. It is small boutique hotel. Very clean and cozy. The rooms are romantic and beautiful. Not so expensive relatively to what you get. I recommend it to all my friends!

My fiancé and I stayed here for four nights and it was lovely! The location is perfect, close to metros and the Marais district, restaurants and shops. Our room was perfect for our needs--had lots of shelving for clothes, stocked mini-bar and plenty of outlets. The bed was super comfortable and the housekeeping was immaculate! The staff was also wonderful.... More

This was a great little hotel. Small, clean and very friendly. A block away from the Bastille cafes/bars/restaurants. Great price for really good quality. The room was small, but big enough to move around. Clean and comfortable bed, great shower etc. The breakfast was included and was very nice. The staff was excellent. I would definitely stay there again.

Hotel de Paris The good reviews are true. This is a great place to stay in Paris. A big highlight and differentiator was the staff. They were extremely helpful and kind, spoke perfect English and answered all of our questions and requests with kindness. If you don't speak French visiting Paris can be extra challenging but Christelle, who worked the... More

The hotel is located on Rue Amelot, in Marais. Its four blocks from Bastille metro station, which is perfect for those arriving in Paris via Gare du Nord (take line 5, six stops, takes approx 12 minutes to arrive). The location is central but the street itself is fairly quiet and the area doesn't feel too 'touristy'. We requested a... More

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
