“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

This hotel has a good location close to several metro lines and easy access from the airport on public transport. The staff at reception all speak English well and are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little small and could do with a comfortable chair, but if one spends most of the day out and and about not a huge problem. The bathroom was very clean, if small. Excellent water pressure and lots of hot water. Rooms are not well sound proofed so take earplugs. There are lots of places to eat in the vicinity. I did not have brerakfast in the hotel as for 10 euros it is more fun to go to a local cafe or bakery for breakfast. I would use it again.

Booked well in advance on-line for three nights in November 2013. Although the hotel is called "Le Relais du Marais" it is not in the Marais district. It's more Temple/Republique. Don't let this put you off! The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was small, but quite adequate as we were out all the time. The room and shower were cleaned and tidied every day. You can easily walk down to Marais or along to St Denis - if you have a decent map you can't go wrong. For a small hotel there was very little noise - even the church bells weren't that annoying. A hotel along the road was charging two and a half times the price, so this is a real bargain. Great stay on a budget.

A clean cozy hotel and very helpful staff. The staff were very accommodating. The hotel is not really close to center but it is 2 min to a metro stop so very convenient. A lot of restaurants around the area; try the La Massara, which has an excellent pizzas. The only minor comment I have is the rooms which are located on the side of the street can be very noisy in the evening; so bring earplugs. Or ask them to give you a room on the other side.

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-September and had modest expectations given the average Parisian hotel, the hotel's two star rating, and the reasonable pricing. We were pleasantly surprised!

Overall the hotel has a cosy homey feel to it. The room, while small, was perfectly adequate, clean, and comfortable. You don't need more than that when you spend most of the day touring the city.

The staff was helpful and spoke English well. They provided a map of the city, stored our luggage, and booked us a taxi to the airport.

And of course, the location is excellent; very close to the Republique metro station, from which it's easy to get anywhere, and within walking distance from Le Marais, which is probably the nicest area in Paris.

The downsides are: Not many facilities (but normal for 2 star hotel), (one) small, slow elevator, and small room (but very typical of Paris, I've seen smaller). Definitely great value for money.

For a few nights in Paris, this is a great place to stay, as it's in the centre of the city - close to quite a few of the main "tourist attractions" and very easy to get to the others from here. Yes, my room was small, but let's face it, if you're in Paris for a few days, you're not going to spend much time in a hotel room. It was clean and nicely decorated. The staff here were extremely helpful and friendly and the cost was very reasonable for the centre of Paris. Will definitely go back the next time I'm there.

A very nice hotel, renewed and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The area is good and close to the subway, but you can walk to many historical spots as well. The only negative thing is that it is expensive for a 2* hotel.

We stayed at this cozy little hotel for a week back August. At first it was a little difficult to find because we could not find the sign. All we could see is a bleu sign that said Hotel ** (two stars). At arrival the room was ready and the receptionist (David) was gracious and very helpful. we were very surprised to see how small everything was, but also functional and clean. the bathroom was newly renovated and very clean. we appreciated the dual plugs (European and American)for the hairdryer and electronics. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. the Wi-Fi worked just fine in the room, we were given new codes to access it every three days. the neighborhood has everything you might need and more. a pharmacy, many coffee shops and restaurants and a sizable metro station (Republique). we had fantastic coffee every morning; we bought sandwiches at the local north African "creperies"; we were even able to find a local Laundromat not to far from the hotel. the rooms are not sound proof however, which is the only downfall at this wonderful parisian gem. Thank you to each and very one at "Le Relais du Marias" we will be back.
