“Very good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Campanile is a hotel chain, and the one in Bastille doesn't look very exciting from the exterior. There's nothing fancy about it, no beautiful Parisienne architecture with iron balconies - it's just a modern square block with large windows and big sliding glass doors at the entrance, sitting on a crossroads.

It's basic in appearance and pretty basic inside. The rooms are pretty small as are the baths, although they are deep and the instant hot water fills them very quickly. The welcome cards in the room promote the fact all their beds have "Simmons top-of-the-line mattresses and box springs" and they are particularly comfortable, however the pillows are not. They are pretty solid and too high for some.

All the rooms have flat screen TV's and despite the numerous channels available it's pretty difficult to find something worth watching. However the hotel offers free WIFI and we used this any time we wanted without difficulty.

The rooms may be smallish but you have everything you need and we were plenty warm enough. They do state that they have air con in all the rooms and much as we tried to operate it - it didn't seem to be working in our room, but it didn't matter as we didn't need it

Cleanliness is something this hotel can be proud of, we were given clean towels and a bath matt every day.

The staff were always friendly and helpful. There is a free luggage store room for you to leave your bags and if you arrive early as we did, if your room is ready - they let you check in early, we were a couple of hours early.

Breakfast looked overpriced but it's overpriced everywhere in Paris and we didn't bother. You can make a tea or coffee in your room and then pick up a pastry for a couple of euro from a boulangerie.

The hotel is very close to the metro - Breguet Sabin is the closest station - a 2 minute walk away. Also beside the metro is a great market open on Thursdays and Sundays ( I can't comment on Mon - Weds as I wasn't there then). The market sells fruit and veg, hot food, pastries as well as some clothing items. it's well worth wandering around.

All in all this hotel is in a safe area, close to the metro and fantastic value for money. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back that overlook the garden are the quietest.

The hotel located 5-10 min walk from Bastille, where you can take metro 1 to many tourist attractions.

Room is small. No closet to put your clothes, only open shelves and hanger. Nice looking to my taste.
If you come in summer time you can enjoy the nice balcony.
No bath, only shower. Shower is big and seems to be new.
Room is very clean. Carpet saw some better days though.
One day the room was not cleaned and made. Front desk had no explanation.

Continental breakfast is good and worth the extra 9.5 euro. For sandwich and coffee you will pay 6-8 euro.

Don't miss the Richard Lenoir market (Sun. And Thu.) and the street flea market at beaumarchais street (weekend)

My rating is based on the value for money

good location for the center of Paris and close the Marais area. A good breakfast to start the day at reasonable hours. Rooms mixed in terms of updated decor but the older style still clean tidy and comfortable. Be sure to shut any inner doors the room may have to keep out corridor noise.

good all rounder but especially for the location - feels safe and plenty with easy walk to soak up the culture . Be sure to check out the Sunday market ..

Room Tip: ask for room with an inner door to cut down on corridor noise

Its a Campanile .... so you get what you expect for a budget chain. Everything works, and is clean. Breakfast is OK, and pretty much 'all you can eat' and at under 10 euro per head is fairly priced. We drove to Paris, so using the underground carpark at the hotel was a plus. Again not cheap, but safe and secure. The staff are variable. The lady who checked us in could not have been nicer, but the lady the next evening was a little surly. But all in all, for a short family break, it is excellently sited and 'does what it says on the tin'. Would I recommend it as a budget place to stay in Paris - Yes. Would I go back - Yes

Just returned from a two night break. Hotel in a quiet location and very convenient for the metro. Clean and comfortable for a basic hotel. Staff very friendly & helpful. Cheap & cheerful. Breakfast very good value for money; good selection of drinks and cereals, yoghurt s, bread, cheese & ham. Fresh fruit salad very good too.

The location of this Hotel is perfect for the traveler who wants to discover Paris. It's very close to 3 separate Metro lines which means you are never more than 20 minutes from most of the main sites. The Hotel itself is very basic where the expression 'you can barely swing a cat' comes to mind when describing the rooms. Saying that the rooms were warm and very clean and again are perfect if you are just going to use them to rest at night. The breakfast is decent enough and a perfect way to start the day. I have to say my experience of the male receptionist was very poor. When we arrived it took him nearly a minute to even acknowledge us even though we were standing right in front of him. Even then his attitude was such that we felt as if we should apologize for disrupting him. It was a very bad first impression.
Overall the location itself would be the main reason for recommending this Hotel.

Unless you go to the outrageously expensive kind, Paris hotels almost never offer value for money. This one is no exception. The rooms are tiny (the beds cover 50% of your room space), the materials are the cheapest imaginable, the walls can use a new coat of paint, the hallways look like you're in a nursing home. And you get all this for about 90 euro a night (which in Paris is not such a bad deal).
And hey, it's clean, the beds are ok, the water is hot, the staff is friendly (by Parisian standards), and it's very conventiently located just a couple dozen of meters from not one but two subway stations, and a 5 minute walk from place de la République and the opera. So if you need just a place to take a shower and crash at night after exploring one of the greatest cities on earth, you might as well pick this one.
As I said: no reason to go there, no reason to stay away.
