In a city where there is much choice and range of standards, the BLC stands out for location, service and value. The package includes a very clean room, modern bath facilities, and comfortable bed and linen. The metro is nearby and the neighbourhood is walkable and has some quirky shops. It's a more 'real' Parisien scene, not so touristy. I... More

Our stay was very pleasant, made especially possible by the kind staff. The room amenities could be improved by offering hand soap, daily bottled water (not just on arrival), iron and ironing board, and a closet. The toilet and shower placement are awkward. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Pleasantly surprised by this reasonably priced 'boutique' style hotel. Crisp white, cute & cosy interior, though a fairly compact room. Located in the ideal spot of Bastille in a quiet street yet easily placed to reach all our touristic needs - a hop skip and jump away from Charonne and Voltaire Metro Stations which go directly to the Eiffel Tower...

The location is excellent, Rue de Charonne is full of great restaurants and the 11th arrondissement in general is my favorite in Paris, not crowded by mass of tourists but full of nightlife. Room is intelligently designed, with drawers under the bed, a on wall desk where I comfortably worked with my laptop and a comfortable bed. I also liked... More

Room is all white, no separate door for shower space. No dryer for each room which is inconvenient, the location is ok and supermarkets are nearby. Only provide one key card...this is super inconvenient for us who have 2 people.

We stayed here for two nights! Only a 2 minute walk from charonne metro station. Plenty of cafes nearby. The room was big and bed comfy. Modern and clean. It was annoying having to give in key card every time we left the hotel. The wine at the hotel is rank!

I spent 10 days in this hotel whilst working at an Event in Bercy. The rooms are very clean (all white therefore hard to hide any dirt). The bed was comfortable with a small but well designed bathroom area. In particular a good shower. The hotel is located close to Charonne Metro to allow easy transport around Paris. Although I...

Very nice clean and I was very impressed with the quality of the breakfast even though was not happy with the quantity, and it has a 4* feel more than the 3* it has compared with other 4* hotels in that area. recommend it strongly.
