Citadines Bastille Marais Paris

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great room (big) in a great location in Paris. One tiny complaint: there was a problem with inconsistent audio on the TV's English-language channels.

We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is conveniently located, the staff is helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Great hotel that reminds me of a Staybridge. Ofcourse being from USA you may want to bring an outlet adapter for France. Friendly cozy and very hospitable. Everyone speaks French. Beware thou continental breakfast is not free. Room has fully loaded kitchen with dishwasher, convection microwave with full compliment of utensils.

My experience was very pleasant and relaxing, hotel was in very good location for touring the sites via the metro. Room was very clean and comfortable, staff and housekeepers were very helpful and pleasant all the time. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends with a limited financial budget traveling to Paris!

Don't think twice about staying here as I did. I'm so glad I made the choice. It's a great location and right near the two metro stops. Lots of options for food within 5 min walk. I don't know if all rooms are renovated yet, but ours was. The room is great and has all you need.

Was looking for a great hotel in bastille/marais area at the last minute and at a great value. I was lucky to come across this hotel. It is in a GREAT area of town - literally right next to a metro stop, so it was easy to get around town. Close to the Marais - so I could easily shop and stroll the streets and be back to my hotel in no time. Staff was super attentive and helpful for anything i needed. Room was small (like you'd expect in Paris) but had everything I needed. I didn't spend too much time in the room, but I had no complaints. Great hotel at a FANTASTIC value!

just stayed one night in order to catch plane back home. rooms were clean, staff friendly, nice balcony. overall, pleasantly surprised.very close to richard lenior metro stop. easily walked to notre dame, strolled along the seine. plenty of restaurants nearby, from bistros to mcdonalds.

I had not understood that the hotel was half residences, with people living there full time, and congregating at the entrance and in the lobby. The room itself was very basic, with a fold-out couch rather than a bed, which I also did not expect. The internet only connects through DSL and through a complicated system, and they do not have a staff they can send for assistance with this. There is a small, relatively stocked kitchen, but few groceries/bakeries in that area. Also, lovely that it's on the promenade (market on Sunday) but it's also surrounded by social housing projects. Again, it was cheap for Paris, and not as offensive as it could have been, but I wouldn't stay there again, and I certainly wouldn't agree with the 4 star rating it had here.

We lucked out and got a giant patio with our not so giant apartment. The bed was not so great but after a bottle of wine we passed out and I woke up with a stiff neck. Great deal for the price and we saved big time by buying groceries and cooking. The subway is right outside the hotel and it took 30 minutes to get to the Eiffel Tower. if you don't mind public transportation this is a great deal. There is also a farmer's market in the park across the street on Sundays in the summer.

The Staff at the Marais Bastille were extremely helpful. We arrived very early (long before check in) but they let us stow our bags. Their English was great and were friendly to us poor Anglo-Canucks. They were also great at pointing us in the right direction around the Hotel and how best to get about. They ordered a cab for us and it was in and on time. The room wasn't huge of course (it's straddling the Marais and Bastille districts) but very comfortable with air conditioning. Right on the Metro (Breguin Sabin stop on the 5th line; don't take a cab from Charles de Gaulle, just get on the RER [train] B line and transfer to the Metro 5 line at Gare du Nord heading towards Place d'Italie). It's a short walk to the Bastille circle. The Breakfast is a bit pricey at 13 Euros for an "extended" continental breakfast but the coffee was fantastic and the food was fresh and good. However, Paris itself is pretty pricey so it wasn't out of the ordinary. When we go to Paris again we will go here. Affordable compared to other Paris Hotels even with the 175 Euro price tag.

We just came back and stayed there for 8 days. The hotel itself is very quiet, near lots of supermarkets and bakeries. The staff is pretty nice especially Jerome. The only downside was the sofabed, lumpy, in the living room and the fact that the rooms and bathrooms need a facelift. A little old but clean. Do not forget they only clean and change towels once a week in the Citadines hotels. In our case they cleaned after we there 4 days. The hotel location is excellent, a few blocks from Bastille metro. Very fast to get around the city by foot or metro. If you like the opera try to see an opera at Opera de Bastille, right near the metro Bastille. Great architecture.
