“Excellent gem away from the mobs”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Terrific location near Canal St. Martin and Bastille yet 5 minutes from Gare De Lyon. Impeccably clean and worth the few extra Euros for a larger room. Face the back courtyard for quiet - you can open the windows and not hear a thing. Excellent breakfast. helpful staff. Stayed two nights week of June 17 (Paris Air Show) and while the room was not cheap, it was not as exorbitant as some of the hotels we have stayed in on past visits. We sort of lucked into this as our usual haunts were full and we wanted to try some of the new restaurants in the 10th,11th and 12 arrondissements.

Room Tip: Have heard that there are some tiny rooms - reserve early and ask for a bigger room.

Took a chance on this one after reading a review and it came up trumps. Very easy to get to from Gare de Lyon (don't bother taking a taxi) and close to Bastille. Clean, modern room in back of hotel. It has a good feel to it and the art work gives it the edge. The bathroom impressed us. Small room, but it worked well for us. Didn't go for the breakfast as it seemed pricey, but looked good and buffet style. Lots of cafés around for cheaper. Staff were helpful and gave us good recommendations for restaurants. Would definitely book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the top of the hotel, although it is a quiet road, and it probably doesn't matt...

Been to Paris many times and always so, so about the hotels.

Marceau Bastille is wonderful. Clean, hospitable, stylish and central enough within a quiet area on the edge of the bustling Bastille.

Our standard room was compact but beautiful and lovingly maintained.

Staff were very helpful and gracious.

We didn't bother with breakfast as there's a plethora of choices within a few minutes walk which suited us.

Definitely would stay here again.

We booked a standard double which was okay just for 2 nights as the room is TINY!!! But location of hotel is good - round the corner from Carrefour supermarket and within 10-15 minutes of Gare du Lyon. Breakfast was very nice with a choice of scrambled eggs, bacon and saussage and an assortment of cold meats, cheeses, bread and pastries as well as fruits and yoghurts. Staff very courteus and professional. Bed was comfortable and even though bathroom was small there was a bath/shower with plent of hot water - perfect for having a soak after a busy day seeing the sights. We caught batobus 10 minutes from hotel on the banks of River Sceine which was hop on/hop off and a great way to see the sights of Paris. Notre Dame is about a 20 minute walk. If you're staying longer than 2 nights book a bigger room!!

It was a last minute booking, and we were really pleased with the hotel. It was a snowy,freezing four days in Paris but the hotel was warm and inviting even though a modern minimalist decor. It was clean, the staff smartly suited even for table waiting, and the breakfast was a plentiful selection buffet style, including good quality bread and pastries, not long-life over-processed stuff often found in hotels. The bed was large, comfy and solid with good pillows; the bathroom clean and fresh, a good hot shower and an efficient loo! No noise from other rooms, no noise from outside. Robes and slippers provided. I've harshly deducted one star becos the wifi was intermittent.

A great hotel. Nothing to complain about. Very quiet, nice rooms, very good breakfast. This is also set in good location for sight-seeing in Paris. Would recommend and go back. The hotel is near to the Bastille Metro which is very handy and close to other sight seeing areas

Great hotel, very modern and clean. Loved the artwork! Very close to all the attractions in a safe neighbourhood which is probably more a residential area however this was great for finding hidden authentic french restaurants. The hotel staff were great at making restaurant reservations for us and providing recommendations. 5 mins walk from Bastille metro station which is on the same line as Gare du Nord if travelling via Euro star. Would definitely come back to this hotel if staying in Paris again!
