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!

First time in Paris and couldn't be happier with our experience at Bastille de Launay Hotel. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful - they all spoke English fluently. The buffet breakfast was delicious. Free wifi is always a positive. Only negative would be the size of the bathroom - the shower was quite small to move around in and our towels were hanging on a hook over the toilet paper. Overall, however, it was a positive experience. Daily room cleans at no extra cost. And, the area surrounding the hotel felt very safe to walk around at night.

The hotel is a clean, welcoming hotel with good sized rooms, a decent location and decent services. The first thing you notice about the hotel is the fabulous welcome, it is that over the top, enthusiasm gone wild, nothing is too much trouble welcome you expect from the US but rarely see in Paris. Really puts a smile on your face. This is all the more welcome because the street the hotel is on is a little run down and bereft of Gallic charm. The rooms are sizable for Paris as is the bathroom, the beds decent and all is very clean and proper. The hairdryer is one of those stuck to the bathroom wall, steel racking replaces the cupboard but these are small issues. The location is good as you are within 5 minutes of the fabulous Place de Vosges, the Marais and Bastille. The Metro is very close. One gripe is that the next road along is Boulevard Beaumarchais, no picture postcard itself, seems to act as a racetrack for the entire night, so if you have a street side room the windows have to remain closed; although the sound proofing prevents noise seeping through and the aircon is good. In summary the hotel is well located to visit the Marais but it would be better to find a hotel in it, the other side of the Beaumarchais, however if there is limited availability and prices are high this hotel is nice and the location not that much of a problem.

The room- perfect! The continental breakfast- delicious! The location- fantastic! The staff- absolutely amazing!! Everyone was so friendly and nice to us even though we could only say about 2 words in French. Lots of great places to eat nearby. If I ever get the chance to return to Paris, I wouldn't want to stay in any other hotel. Seriously, it was awesome.

As a tour guide, hotels are my life. The HOTEL BASTILLE DE LAUNAY is one of the best in which I stay every year. The location, just off the Place de Bastille, is excellent, near the Metro but still very quiet. The rooms are modern and efficient, the breakfasts very good and the desk service the best of any hotel in all of Paris.

I found this hotel very good. It served all the needs for myself and wife. It had a business section. Where i could use a computer. Itvalso had free wifi. It was a 5 min walk from station. There was a very nice market place close by and a supermarket. Great service. Food was lovely and fresh and the price was right.
