So the Hotel is nicely located and the staff is helpful. But for a 3 star hotel it really isn't up to the standards. Nice small room that needs reconditioning (old carpets, flaky walls, old looking bathroom). The hotel is nice and it's location is well placed as well. The walls that they used for building are really thin but we've found that lots of hotels in Paris are cheaply build that way (other cities too). Overall, not a bad place to have a short stay but they need to keep up with the building's maintenance if they want to keep their 3 star status.

Rooms are somewhat small, but nice, breakfast buffet great, internet access reliable, desk friendly

The hotel is perfectly located in the Bastille quartier. Rooms are modern and lovely designed, staff very friendly but the bathroom could need a proper cleaning. All over we had a great stay! Thank you and happy New Year

I really liked the hotel and especially where it was located. It was a bit outside the tourist areas (east of Bastille) - it was more in a residential area which I prefer. And because of that, there were some really good restaurants around. Plus there is a Metro station right around the corner, which is a great and easy way to get around Paris. As for the rooms. When I first booked the hotel, I read a lot of reviews about the place. The biggest complaint I read was that it had paper thin walls. However, I did not hear any of our neighbors. But since the doors were heavy, you can hear people opening and shutting them. But otherwise, the noise level was at a minimum (except for the one night with some drunk girls outside!) As for the size of the room... like all boutique hotels, it was small, but manageable - very much like NY hotels. The bathroom was also small, but the shower was great! It had good water pressure and a waterfall-like shower-head imbedded in the ceiling!!! But it did get the bathroom a little wet all over. They did clean the rooms everyday. The bed was comfortable... really, if you're in Paris, the only reason to be in the hotel is to sleep and shower. The only thing we did not do is eat their breakfast - complete rip-off! As mentioned, there are plenty of restaurants and bakeries around, you will find plenty of places to get a good breakfast at a fraction of the cost at the hotel. It's definitely a hotel I would book again!

The hotel is nice and a convenient location but small, and some of the staff was a bit rude. The shower flooded the bathroom and into the bedroom area, and when I went to ask for an extra towel to clean up the mess the man at the front desk was very unhelpful and blamed me for causing the flooding and was reluctant to part with even a towel.

We enjoyed it. Near the RER and metro stations. Near cafes and bistros which we love!

My friend and I stayed on the 4th floor of the Color Design hotel a few weeks back and had an extremely enjoyable experience. The room was not too big but proved to be extremely comfortable for the two of us. The bed was fantastic with plenty of big, squashy pillows. Loved the plasma tv and iPod docking station. Favorite part of room was definitely the shower, which had EXCELLENT water pressure with a nice hand-held option in addition to the in-ceiling showerhead fixture. Slightly strange was the clear bathroom door, but it did not make too much of a difference for us. One negative about the hotel was the soundproofing - could hear people in room next door. BUT, the price, location (tons of bars and restaurants nearby), cleanliness, modernity, and helpfulness of the staff countered the soundproofing issue. I would definitely stay there again.
