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

My best friend and I visited Paris for the first time. We were very pleased with our accommodations. The room was spacious to us and the wifi was fast too. The entire staff was very helpful. We will definitely stay at Classics Hotel Bastille the next time we are in Paris.

The location of the hotel was perfect for us, just a minute away from Charonne metro station and the main attractions were a short distance away. The area appeared safe and we had breakfast most mornings from the two bakerys on the road, both were amazing. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable, the room was small but manageable but...

The hotel is very good for its category. It is not a four or five star hotel, but it does the job. The hotel is in a good location, two blocks from the metro. It is also well located in regards to Charles de Gaulle airport. The hotel offers airport transfers, but we found the taxi to be reasonably priced--... More

This hotel was located near the metro. The cafes in the area were not typical tourist traps because the hotel is tucked away from the major tourist areas. We really enjoyed the breakfast! The downsides: The brunette at the desk (taller one) was very rude and not helpful on our first day when we were trying to buy metro tickets.... More
