Hôtel Bastille De Launay

Recent guest reviews

I was travelling for work and found the Bastille de Launay hotel at a time when it was almost impossible to get hotel rooms due to the exhibition season in Paris - and I was glad I did. The price was high at 200€ including breakfast but it was not bad given the time of year. The hotel is quite central, near to metro stations and only a short walk from Place de la Bastille, and also near the Marais area. It is suitable for business and pleasure, though most people staying were tourists. A good breakfast buffet was set in a surprising underground room. The staff were welcoming and the service helpful. The rooms are small, but comfortable and sound-proof. There is also a menu in the room for ordering food from outside the hotel. After a busy day in Paris (which it generally is), you can get a guaranteed good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. Bastille de Launay is a nice option in the middle of Paris. A lovely little boutique hotel!

Really great location- right on the border of Le Marais and close to many metro and bus stops. Incredible service! Olivier so kindly upgraded us and the room was on the top floor and courtyard facing so very quiet. He also explained exactly how to get to places and provided us with plenty maps and detailed directions. The room was clean and spacious and the bathroom had both a bath/shower. The AC was handy for the heat of Paris as was the mini fridge in the room. Breakfast had a good variety and the selection of French pastries were delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

Me and my daughter stayed for a week. We enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. It wasn't big but well organised. The location is great. Near the metro station and walking distance to the mare and to restaurants. The stuff was very helpful and friendly. We defenitely recommend this place and hope to come back again.

It was my first time in Paris, and I was glad to have stayed at this lovely small boutique hotel. The staff are really warm and friendly. And there is a nice personal touch here, which feels very different from staying at large hotels. For Chinese people or singers who need to be constantly drinking hot/warm water, there is no kettle but they kept bringing hot water to my room : ) The room is really clean. Size is decent considering its central location, and the room is nicely designed. Location is excellent, right next to two metro stations (you can also easily walk to Bastille, which is the big station that goes to anywhere). This has nothing to do with the hotel, but it is located in the nice and posh Bastille area, where food and drinks tend to be quite expensive. On the other hand, you can walk to the Louvre or jog to the Eiffel Tower! Overall, a lovely stay at a charming hotel. Merci beaucoup!

Right around the corner from the Chemin Vert metro stop. Great breakfast every morning, and the staff were super friendly and wonderful. Also it's right in the middle of the Marais - a fantastic area of the city. Would definitely stay again.

This hotel was incredible. It was clean, all the staff was friendly and willing to do anything for you. The breakfast was amazing and there was a great variety! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone!!

I only stayed in this hotel for one night but I am glad I did. It is located in a quiet street very near Les Marais and Bastille. Great location for walking and exploring the area. There are two metro stops nearby; the Brequet-Sabin stop is on the 5 line which goes straight to Gare du Nord, if you are arriving by train or RER from Charles de Gaulle. The room was small (average for Paris) but comfortable for one person, clean and modern. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, and a small supermarket. Particulary recommended: Maison Bastille, a nice cafe for breakfast/brunch and Cuba Compagnie, a really cool bar. I was there during Fête de la Musique and the atmosphere was amazing. Music in every corner, people dancing (jazz, rock, Cuban, classic, celtic...). The area was buzzing. I also recommend a walk in Place des Vosgues (my favourite), which is just a few minutes from the hotel. It was extremely hot in Paris during my visit (36 degrees C!!) but the hotel had superb air conditioner and very fast internet. But the best part was the staff; they were all very friendly, smiley and very helpful. They made me feel very welcome.

My wife and I found this little gem of a hotel through my daughter, a Botanist, who had stayed there in January during an EU conference on invasive species. When she was invited back to another panel discussion in late March and early April, we decided to join her and her husband and stay at the same hotel. While the rooms are small the charm of the hotel and professionalism and warmth of the staff is expansive. The location, one street over from the Marais District, is perfect. The included breakfast is well supplied and tended to and is delicious, especially the coffee and pain au chocolat. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the maid service is excellent. And, the concierge staff is helpful, very friendly and professional, as I stated above. My wife, who speaks French, and I, who do not, had several engaging conversations with members of the staff, especially, Flora, Olivier and Mattheus. Writing this review and reflecting upon our visit to Paris, made all the more pleasant by the staff of Hotel Bastille de Launay, makes me long to go back. If you are going to Paris, I strongly recommend staying there.

Great and charmant hotel! Beautiful place, clean, and in a very strategic position situated in the neighborhood of Marais one of the most beautiful place in Paris. Employees are very kind! I suggested this beautiful hotel!

Located on a side street it covered all of our basic needs and then some. Within a 5 minute walk we would discover an abundance of cafe’s, restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, the Sunday market, movie theatres, 3 separate metro lines, various bus lines including plus many photography stores, and a movie prop house. We felt right at home. A great part of Bastille De Launay was the staff. Incredible 24 hour front desk service. From the cheerful helpful greetings everyday, to the fabulous referrals & information delivered with charm and great humour, to the extremely helpful and always smiling night staff who added the extra special touches providing me with my own thermos of hot water every night so I could make a cup of tea before bed. ~ We loved this place!
