“Modern hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel - we reserved 3 rooms for 3 couples. The rooms were clean, the staff very helpful and the location was central to everything. A few things to note: There is free wifi, there is a lift/elevator, the front desk was super helpful and speaks English very well, and continental breakfast is offered for additional price.

Room Tip: Room 22 has 2 balconies and overlooks Blvd Richard Lenoir

This was a fantastic boutique hotel. It was a last minute find and well worth it. The staff were great, the room just right and the bathroom, though a little small, though normal for Paris was just fine. Nice and clean and safe. Breakfast isn't included but not too costly if you wanted to eat in.

Marais, close by was a great little find with the shops and cafes and restaurants around, and it is really only a skip on the Metro away from everything and walking into the city was easy enough if you like to walk.

My only problem was the Metro near by where there is only steps down and up to it, ok if you travel light but since it was my daughter and I in France and the UK for 3 weeks we had to lug our suitcases and cabin bags up the steps. I did find that the French men were very helpful with assistance without being asked. But none of this is the hotels fault, just thought that I would let you know if you were travelling there by the Metro.

But I thought that it was a great find.

So in summary, the room was small, the view was shocking, the price was on the higher end. That said, the room was clean and the staff were friendly. Would I go here next time - nah!

Breakfast - not included in the price and cost 13 euros (which for Paris is pretty reasonable), although that said there are some nice Bakeries on Rue de Rivoli where you can pick up a pastry and a cup of coffee for 5 euros!

The rooms - pokey with a view of a wall but they were clean and kept clean on a daily basis. The room had a small safe and had a hair dryer and some tea making facilities. Was it worth over 100 pounds a night - nope!

The staff - friendly and on hand 24/7

Convenience - not as city centre as some of the other Best Western Hotels but pretty reasonable to get too. Near Bastille Metro station (about 200m walk) and easy access to the city centre. It is a metro ride to the tower and arc de triumph but if it is a nice day it is a beautiful walk along the river.

All in all, it probably is not worth the money paid and you could get a better deal elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room!

great hotel in a great location. This hotel ticks all the boxes, clean and comfortable, all the amenities and really helpful staff. The hotel is a great spot. 5 minutes by foot to Marais and right in the heart of Bastillle. Bastille is a bit of a hidden secret, not to be missed. This hotel was exactly as our party of 6 could have hoped for.

Stayed there alone for a few days of shopping on my way to a seminar. The hotel is located close to the Bastille, not on the most lively street (mostly motorcycle shops) but close to the action, so you get the best of both worlds: a good night of sleep and everything within a few minutes' walk. Efficient and courteous check-in, which pretty much sums up the quality of the service throughout my stay.

The room is surprisingly large for a Paris hotel, nicely designed and well appointed. And again, can't underline it enough, very quiet. I had breakfast in my room, it was a tasty continental breakfast.

There was only two things that bothered me during the stay and one of them wouldn't be a problem for most guests. 1) The smell in the common areas. As soon as I walked in the hotel, I felt a very strong, unidentifiable smell that really disturbed me. I think it may have been from recent renovation work in the common areas. Fortunately, my room didn't have such a smell, otherwise I would have had a problem. But I must admit, I have a very strong sense of smell and it's a real handicap. Just wanted to have it here, so others like me are informed. 2) The safe wasn't large enough to hold a computer. I locked mine in my suitcase, which fitted nicely in the cupboard (not bad for Paris!) and that was perfectly ok for me, but for some this may not be an acceptable solution.

Would I stay there again? Why not. I really had a good stay, felt welcome, slept well and had plenty of space. Usually I try to test new areas of the city whenever I am in Paris, but if I had to be close to the Bastille, I would definitely stay at the Marais Bastille again.

Clean, quite -although the road in front of the hotel was central but had no traffic!, nice view - a park is lying beneath- has all the necesary things that a traveller needs- boil machine, coffee,sugar etc- is very close at least at 2 metro stations, a grocery store is at the previous corner. All the attendants in the reception were far too kind and pleasant ( discreet). We look forward to stay there on our next visit to Paris!!!

Room Tip: Last floor is magnificent
