Hôtel Bastille De Launay

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The most striking feature was the spotless cleanliness of the hotel : rooms, facilities , breakfast cellar, lobby. Second was the nice and very friendly staff inspiring this small hotel with a pleasant atmosphere. The room, though small, had all what is required to ensure a comfortable stay. The facilities are modern and sufficient. The free tea and coffee was a nice bonus. Location was good . Close to the Metro station Chemin Vert ( line 8), several bus lines, restaurants, bars, shops and stores including boutique ones; one stop from Bastille Opera ( 4 Metro lines) and a short walking distance to the quaint Marais Quarter with its endless attractions and beauty. To top it all, we, on the 4th floor, had our little spot to remember- a large window overlooking a staircase, a petite square with few trees and a lamppost, not as beautiful and romantic as Place de Furstermberg but lovely nonetheless. We put this hotel in our short- list for the future .

Stayed for a week just after the new year. The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming. They had an abundance of knowledge about the Marais area as well as the greater Paris region. The room was comfortable and impeccably clean. The hotel was a block from the metro station as well as dozens of restaurants and shops. It is on a quiet street which made for a good nights sleep.

Perfect little spot for a short stay, very clean comfortable rooms. Polite and friendly staff and perfect location. Walking distance to chic cafes, bars and restaurants. It would have been perfect with some complimentary tea or coffee in the room but no complaints otherwise. They do have breakfast at an additional twelve euros. Hotel is big on security so they insist on keys being handed over at the reception and buzzing back in.

The hotel is situated close to Bastile metro station with several others close by. It's attraction is the lively neighbourhood of bars, restaurants and clubs, as well as a substantial street market a few minutes away. Many attractions such as hotel de Ville, Pompidou centre, Picasso museum.... are just a brisk walk away Staff are always available at the hotel, and truly helpful. Rooms are quite small with compact en suite facilities, with a lift that serves all 5 floors. This was perfectly adequate for our long weekend break. We enjoyed a very enjoyable stay in one of our favourite cities

Nice modern hotel, very well located, minutes away from 2 metro lines. Rooms are small but in line with Parisian standards. Very friendly, professional staff Only downside is the soundproofing and one seems to have the choice between the noise from the lift or from the street. Being a light sleeper, I couldn't have slept without earplugs.

Minimal but clean and beauty. Bastille de Launay hotel has great location in the Marais and near m1 metro station. The stuff is very freindly, wifi works well and we would certainly come back next time we are in Paris

I was so impressed by my first visit to this hotel about 5 years ago that I readily booked it for a second time. Every member of staff that we met was welcoming and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Good beds and pillows and bathroom with both tub and shower. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment - plenty of places to grab a 'petit dejeuner' nearby. Really good location close to Bastille - two Metro stations plus buses very close to the hotel. Would definitely recommend it and hope to be back again before too long!

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.
