I stayed here in July 2014 for four nights whilst studying at The Sorbonne. The hotel was perfect for what I needed (a) 24 hour reception as I arrived in the early hours, (b) great breakfast, only continental but good range of items and quality, (c) a nice room with balcony and good furnishings. No air con just a fan... More

We checked in and had to sit in the room for an hour while they re-keyed the door. They advertise air conditioning... it was a fan. The bed was two horrible twins pushed together, they don't stay that way. It is incredibly loud in the room from the street. The breakfast was supposed to be included, they charged us €12... More

When I booked this hotel for 3 says, I was astounded by the price, but even more astounded once I had checked in. The hotel is as basic as it gets. No frills. The reception staff were extremely rude, except for the gentleman who checked us out on the last day. The superior room was TINY. No space for two... More

Upon our arrival the indifferent desk clerk simply handed us our room key, pointed in the direction of the elevator and that was it, She did not provide us with any information about our room or the services provided by the hotel. For example, she did not tell us that we needed to insert our key card into a little... More

I stayed here for 9 days in April, and my friend and I were thrilled with the location and quality of service- especially for the great price. We had a room with 2 twin beds that was more than adequate for storing our belongings and sleeping, which is all we wanted. The shower was extremely small, but there was tons... More

Just back from a three day trip to Paris. We stayed in the Classics and found it to be clean, safe, quiet and well-located, close to the metro and lots of reasonably priced restaurants. The continental style breakfast was good quality and plentiful with great variety. We had a room overlooking the interior courtyard and wouldn't have known we were... More

My mom and I just spent 4 days in Paris and we wanted a hotel that was close to the Metro and budget friendly. Classics was clean and the staff was very helpful. Our room was fine for 2 of us and we loved how big the bathroom was. Definitely a rare sight in Europe. The breakfast buffet was delicious... More

I traveled to Paris in February with a school group. Our budget was tight. We needed a clean, safe, reasonably comfortable hotel at a price we could afford. Bonus points for proximity to major sights. This hotel fit the bill ... the rooms are small but immaculate. The breakfast buffet was a major convenience and a cost-saver -- the sunroom... More

Yes, it really was impossibly small. If you are a medium-size-large person (maybe 200 lbs or so and not tall) getting in and out of the tiny, square shower was a tight squeeze with elbows hitting the walls, etc. That being said, the hotel is small and comfortable. We booked two triples, which provided two lovely beds together and one... More

Classics Hotel Bastille is a small charming 3 stars hotel with 35 contemporary-styled rooms. It is perfectly located between Place de la Bastille, Place de la Nation and the Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Marais and the Louvre Museum are only at a few bus stops. At the Metro stop Charonne, 100 meters from the hotel, you can reach the mains touristic places of Paris like the Department Stores, Champs-Elysees Avenue and Eiffel Tower. The rooms have all been renovated and offer the modern comfort of a 3 stars hotel (free internet wireless, LCD TV 82 cm, safety deposit box, hair drier). One single room is equipped for guests with reduced mobility. Buffet breakfast is served below the veranda. If you wish, in summer time, you can enjoy it in our garden.
