The room was a good size for a French hotel. Very easily accessible for the metro. There was a nice little market close buy.
The room was clean, but it did smell a bit like cigarettes.
I loved the spacious shower.
We had breakfast at the hotel as well which was really nice, plenty of choices.
The staff were really nice and helpful.

Dear MarcelaIosif,

Many thanks for your very nice review, it is very much appreciated.
Indeed the market is very pleasant to visit, and just front of the hotel. ( Every thursday and sunday).
We apologize for the cigarette smell, however the hotel is entirely non smoking!

Hope to welcome you again soon.

Hôtel Best Western Marais Bastille is a wonderful hotel close to a lot of attractions in Paris. There is a Metro station only a couple of minutes walk away but we walked ourselves to many interesting and beautiful sights, such as Notre Dame.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, even giving us luggage tags when noticing our bags didn't have any attached and storing them in a locked room when we wanted to sightsee on our day of departure.
Breakfast was excellent, with a large variety of pastries, fruits, yoghurts and eggs cooked for you.
We thought it was a good idea to hand in your key when going out as keys can get lost and other hotels charge for lost keys and there is someone at reception 24 hours anyway.
We would stay here again, no problem.

This hotel is located to the east of (and not within) the Marais. The area is not smart but it provides a perfectly acceptable base for exploring the city, with metro station Bréguet-Sabin close by. The bedrooms are comfortable, tastefully furnished and well insulated, with free wifi. The hotel respected my request for a room facing onto the internal courtyard (rather than the busy boulevard) and I slept well. The reception area has a pleasant lounge where guests can read newspapers. The service is correct, though not particularly warm or welcoming. I would stay at this hotel again.

Our trip started with 2 nights in Paris and stayed ate Hotel Paris Bastille. Which was ok. then went off to Italy for 8 days and back to Paris. We decided to stay at a different hotel and was very glad to have found Best Western Hotel Marais Bastille. When we checked in, we were upgraded to a higher floor with a balcony over looking Blvd. Richard Lenoir. It was a treat to wake up and look out at boulevard below and the Bastille Monument to the left and the rooftops of the Marais and Bastille neighborhood. The offered daily breakfast for a fee,forgot how much. But we were happy to find coffee shops and had our breakfast. The room was larger than the first hotel and again, we had a great view. Staff was friendly and helpful. So,to BEST WESTERN Hotel Marais Bastille, Merci for a great stay! I TOTALLY RECOMMEND this hotel.

We had a fabulous stay @ this property. On the outskirts of Marais but just 7 minutes walk to Bastille stop on Line 1, numerous yummy cafes/bistro before stop. We used this stop because it was a direct line to lots of Tourist stops, Great A/C!
Pros:
Breakfast, euro style, hard boiled egg with pastries (of course croissants), yoghurt, fruit salad, coffee, lattes
Very clean, newer sheets, duvet, flat screen tv
Great Value

Cons:
Shower has no enclosure, water everywhere
Rooms very tight/small
Wi/Fi not strong enough for video/picture text

very clean rooms, 24 hr staff, best shower I had in France (big and roomy with great water pressure), comfortable beds. Yes a bit small on the rooms, but you are in Paris. Metro stop right across the street. Plus on certain days the square across the street has a phenomenal market - can have fresh crepes and coffee for two for 12 Euros to start your day. There is also a comfortable lobby if you are looking to enjoy a bottle of wine you may have picked up with some brie for an afternoon break. And although the hotel is on a busy street we found the soundproofing in the rooms to be excellent!

What a litte gem! Goes above and beyond any other 3 star hotel I have every stayed in throughout Europe. It should be 4 star! Small rooms, yes (but that's Europe) however super comfortable beds and an excellent shower! Modern and extremely clean, this is more that we could have asked for for our last night in Paris. Just across the road from the Metro station, it is very conveniently located. The weekly market are held right across the road too! Definitely recommend!
