Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Small hotel, located in a quiet street in one of the nicest areas in Paris. Rooms are small and very basic. Nothing good or bad to say about them. Beds are reasonable. Very small bathroom. Very clean. If the only thing you need is a clean room to sleep at, then this is a great place to stay at. Location is perfect. Front desk staff seemed nice as well (didn't use them much). One issue I had was that They didn't have irons to borrow.... So had to go to work with a wrinkled shirt.... I will probably be back.

Pro:
Safe place to stay (which is one of the most important)

Clean bedroom, bath room and towels change everyday. excellent for its price.

Mr.Zild will go beyond front desk to help you book the taxi, find good place for dinner, print out your reservation! his caring service just beyond 5 star hotel. Thank you Mr.Zild ( if I spell his name right)

you won't go hungry cause there are tons of lovly café and late market stores open.

BHV mall just around the corner and Hotel de Ville metro just across the street.

Soap and shampoo (no hair dryer)

This is the basic hotel to put ur belonging in the room and go out enjoy Paris!

Cons:
The hotel is right where the action is! maybe too close to the action as the street noise can get to you even pass midnight. Le Cox just one street down.

Tons of lovly gay bars and café so if you are homophobic then you shouldn't travel.

Overall:
if you looking for romantic bed of roses fancy hotel then this won't do for you. but if you want to save money for safe stay basic hotel then this one for you.

Let's face it, it's expensive to visit Paris! But when we contacted Vieux Marais 3 years ago, we found an affordable place in a great neighborhood. So we came back to Paris this May and stayed at Vieux Marais again and were just as happy as the first time! Some major renovations have been done to the rooms and the lobby and both are beautiful. This is not the Ritz, but the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is big and sunny. The concierge helped us find great restaurants in the neighborhood and pointed out sights and places to shop.
The area in Paris called the Marais is the best place to stay in Paris. It is trendy, unique and a great neighborhood to wander in. And the Louvre and other big sites are within walking distance! I highly recommend Vieux Marais if you want a comfortable place to stay without breaking the bank.

Excellent.
Top location super close to Place des Vosges and Notre Dame in Marais.
It has been renovated on a cozy style.
It is clean, with rather ample smart room and bathroom and it is not costly.
They gave me a double room for the price of single just because they were not fully booked, really touchy.
I am definitely coming back!

Could not find a better location in the centre of the Marais for the money! This Hotel, while is modest in its accomodation, is really at the heart of the Marais and just steps from Rue des Archives with its eclectic mix of shops, cafes, bars and street life , yet Rue des Platre where the Hotel is situtation itself is very quiet ! A small but enchanting reception leads straight away to the lift and steps upstairs - rooms are small but very comfortable - queen sized beds, and the bathroom a delight! Curtains are heavy so obscuring the morning light if you like a sleep in and the sheets and towels were changed everyday mmmmmm!. There is no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and no formal breakfast but there are adequate shops and cafes metres away on Rue des Archives. We found Marie Helene and her family team at reception really helpful - Marie Helene even did a midnight tour of the immediate district for us showing us where she lived in one the Marais's infamous olde 'Hotel Particulaires' and the studios of the designer of the Pompidou centre (immediately opposite the entrance to Rue des Platre on Rue des Archives) . We were asked did we require breakfast in our room but we declined as we loved breakfast at 'Le Pain Quotidien' just around the corner in Rue Des Archive - its an amazing bread based cafe with loads of home grown/made vegetarian options (gets busy but a short wait will be worthwhile and there are plenty of other cafes next door on Rue des Archives to entertain your appetitie and even a Daily Monop a fresh food supermarket outlet!) From the Hotel its walkable to beyond Les Halles, Rue des Rosier (Jewish Quarter), Louvre, Place des Voges, Hotel De Ville (and its Metro), Beauborg, Left Bank, Pantheon, Paris Mosque, Jaredins des Plantes, Bastille, and all round the Marais - also recommend 'L' Imprevu' Cafe on Rue Quincampoix a few streets away - its a cool repose for you with teas, beers and cakes - especially late at night the crowd is appealing! Approach the Hotel from Chatelet Les Halles or Hotel de Ville metro - taxis can be hailed from either end of Rue de Platres. Enjoy ! :-) PS the hotel also has a beautiful spriral staircase ! PPS For the best Choc Eclairs in Paris try 'L'Eclair' on Rue Pavee nearby!

Room Tip: Two rooms on each floor have windows to the rear and will be very quiet but have no street views. Th...

We had rented an apartment in the Marais for 4 people but found when we arrived that it was only suitable for 2 and we needed very quickly to find a hotel room in the same neighbourhood We luckily stumbled on the Vieux Marais. The staff could not have been more charming or helpful and the room was bigger than we expected for the money. It was clean and comfortable and the public areas very appealing. We would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Our room on the 4th floor was lovely and quiet and had a skylight .
