I've been wanting to write a review of this hotel but hasn't got round to it. Hopefully this is still not too late. Stayed 6 nights in the Ecolo Room at this hotel in April 2012. Eventhough we booked a double room, the room was very small. With a double bed and a very narrow built-in table top, there was very little space on either side of the bed. We had a difficult time trying to find space to open up the 25" suitcase that each of us carried. The bathroom was very tight. If you're petite like me, it is a challenge getting into the bathtub for your shower. You have to be 6 foot tall to get in and out of the bathtub without tripping over the side! I tried to ask for a room with a shower cubicle only but was told that all the rooms have shower over the bathtub.
There was no kettle in the room, so we had to ask Reception for a pot of hot water every night to make tea. It was just as well we brought our own tea bags.
The hotel is located about 15 minutes by foot to the Gare de Lyon station. If you're carrying a light and small suitcase, it is OK walking to the hotel from the station. However, it is pretty tricky if you're carrying a bulky suitcase as the taxis will not take you once they find out that you're going to Le Marceau Bastille Hotel as it is not far enough for them to make it worth their while.
