This hotel is in an amazing location, you can walk to the Ile de la Cite in 15 minutes, great restaurants nearby, lively neighborhood with attractive French buildings. The hotel itself is in a beautiful building, the window in our room is picture worthy, what you would expect to see in Paris. The gentleman in the front desk was very... More

This was a perfect location in Marais, you can walk to the Louvre or Notre Dame in 10 minutes. the owners are very helpful and recommended many good places to eat. Metro stops were close by and restaurants and bars and shopping are right around the corner. I will definitely stay here again.

I spent 4 nights here and am glad I did. The staff are all friendly and helpful everyday in every way from providing good advice, to ordering my taxi to the train . We began in French each day, and often continued in English. The breakfast in the room was a terrific start to the day and worthwhile as it... More

The pictures that were put there by other users reminded me of my room exactly. Cracks, mildew, patches on the walls... The room was so small that I could touch the walls on both sides of my single bed while lying in it. The free WiFi was there, but only in the lobby. I still enjoyed my stay there. The... More

Very friendly and helpful staff! Rooms are small and very basic, clean, practical, no decoration. The shower was not ideal though, the drain slope was not very good and the water tended to pool everywhere, we ended up mopping the floor with the towels. Our other room was facing the street and had a bath with shower and curtain. The... More

Great location in Marai. The hotel has a very nice exterior and wonderful lobby. The room was very clean, good size for Paris, warm, with practically no decoration (reminded me of a hospital room). There was no street noise in our room (it was facing inner courtyard) though you could hear next door pluming or people showering. The bed was... More

Location is super, in the middle of the Marais. But the staff is very rude, unfriendly and cold. You can read about this issue in many reviews about this hotel on Trip Advisor, and they are right! You can find tons of better hotels in the area for the same prices, where people have learned that kindliness is the key... More

Loved the location of the hotel,a 5 minute walk from main metro stations that connect Paris. A bustling busy area, but when at the hotel you sleep without any noise. Large rooms compared with other hotels, the toilet is clean and new. Every day the rooms are cleaned, and linen changed along with the towels

I would prefer a duvet instead of a blanket. The owner lady is very kind and happy. The location is great because it is very close to the city hall in the Marais area and close to many different ways of transportation

This is a charming, family run, clean, no frills hotel in the heart of the Marais. A few blocks from Hotel de Ville and Rambuteau metro stations, this hotel is close to restaurants, bars, and shopping without being so so central that the crowd or traffic noise is overwhelming. I will definitely stay here again.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
