I have stayed in Residence Hoteliere Le 300 around Easter and was overall very satisfied with my experience. The rooms are brand new and spotless, if a bit small - which seems to be the norm in Paris. The staff are all young, friendly and helpful. Check in an check out was a breeze with no hassle whatsoever.
Residence Le 300 is a 5 minute (10 if you're really slow) walk away from Bastille and in the middle of a quite interesting residential area. Walk south to Place d'Aligre for a non-tourist residential area with local bars and restaurants, east to Rue du Faubourg Saint Antoinne / Rue de Lappe for bustling nightlife, west to Marais for, erm, more bustling nightlife or north to Bastille for local landmarks. So, you're in the middle of the action and still in a quiet side street.
The rooms are not only clean and new, but they also include a small kitchenette. Very handy, if you want to save some money. I had my breakfast "at home" mostly and got all I needed in a Franprix around the corner. Don't forget to buy a dishwasher though or the hotel will charge you for clearing your dishes. Odd that they don't provide the things you need to avoid that...
Other than that, I felt that the residence had two minor downsides: it is no hotel, so don't expect room service - I didn't have one throughout my 5-day stay and I felt that at least every 2-3 days someone should have looked after the room, restocked toiletteries etc. Also, the house is a bit clairaudient and I woke up in the morning by the noise of slamming doors (the room doors are very heavy and loud!). Maybe someone should do something to make them a bit less noisy?
Nevertheless, I felt that I got great value for money. A brand new apartment with a kitchenette in central location for prices for which you would usually only get a shabby 2* etablisement (and I have heard these can be pretty awful in Paris!). So, I would definitely think about returning to Residence Le 300 on my next trip to beautiful Paris.
