Hotel Standard Design3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Small rooms, minuscule closets (we had to put our clothes around the room which made the room feel even smaller) the bathroom light didn’t work, every other day we had cold showers (no bathtub), thin walls (we could hear the cleaning ladies every morning and we could hear other guests walking up and down the stairs and hallways), theres a church right next door so there are constant church bells ringing (I didn't mind the bells that much but some people might want to know beforehand). Positives of this place was the location next to Bastille and many bars/restaurants conveniently located next door. Not worth the 3 stars they claim to have.
We stayed in the hotel for 7 nights in October 2017. The neighborhood is nice, the metro station Bastille is near, there are bistros in the area. Everything was fine. The hotel itself is nothing special, but it is clean. Our problem was in the bathroom; no place to hang towels! In any case, since we were on vacation we did not care about that. One evening we were expecting for the receptiomist to return to the hotel for about 10 minutes out in the street. But what made me to change my mind for the hotel and not recommend it to other travellers was the following: Our last morning we arranged for the shuttle bus to the airport. The girl in the reception was trying to persuade us to hire a taxi instead. We still wanted the shuttle bus, which was cheaper by 20 euros. She gave us a voucher and we left the hotel. In the afternoon, when we returned, just in time to catch the shuttle bus, the same girl told us that the shuttle bus presented a mechanical problem, therefore she had arranged for a taxi, without knowing whether we could afford it. the driver was in the hotel waiting for us. I have to say that I agreed to use the taxi only because we had no time to use the metro. We paid more than 55 euros. And I strongly believe that the receptionist cooperates with the taxi company since she did not call us when "she learnt that the shuttle bus was broken". I do not recommend this hotel.
Price is fair. Rooms are small Neighborhood is fantastic, but noisy. Good access to wherever you want to go in Paris. Staff is rude and unhelpful. The night guys is the only one who seemed cool and friendly; wish I remembered his name.
This hotel has a great location in the very lively area of Bastille - it's on a direct metro line if coming from the Gare du Nord, and there are many restaurants and bars nearby. I got a very good deal with breakfast buffet included. My room overlooked the street and there was noise from traffic amd a nearby church bell which chimes the hour (although this stops overnight), so I thought I might have trouble sleeping, but in fact I slept very soundly. Cons - the tiles in the shower could do with better cleaning to remove staining. There was no hair dryer as advertised in the room, so I had to spend 5-10 min in reception with wet hair while one was located.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are very friendly and helpful - they will translate to English for those of you who struggle with the language. We arrived about 1pm hoping to to leave our luggage but were able to get into our room after 10 minutes thanks to the accommodating staff. There's a hairdryer, towels and toiletries provided - handy for those only travelling with hand luggage. There's a TV but only 1english news channel (not that you need to watch TV). We were on the 3rd floor and the stairs and room floor are rather wonky but this adds to the character of the hotel. One negative - not great WiFi in our room - it was intermittent and had to stand at one side of the room to get it. Top tip - use Bastille metro station to access anywhere in the city. If staying for 3 nights or more, ask at the metro station for the navigo decouverte semaine card - unlimited use of the metro for around €27 pp.
Very friendly and helpful staff including receptionists , housekeeping staff and the lady in the breakfast room was extremely friendly. This is the second time we have stayed here. Room was smaller than previously.
Quality hotel, located near the La Bastille with everything necessary to have a very nice trip to Paris. The reception was perfect, very kind staff. The room spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was a plus. Very recommended
We were in Paris for a week. this hotel was everything we needed. The room was very nice an clean/ The service was very friendl We liked the GREAT location, it's close to the metro station. there are many restaurants the street.
We were only in Paris for a couple of nights and this hotel was everything we needed. The room was nice and spacious, the breakfast buffet is not great but it has the basics, the service was very friendly but we kept having to ask for more water bottles. I personally liked the location, it's close to the train station and although it is a walk from the tour eiffel and other touristy sites, it's still a busy area. I would recommend it but don't expect too much.
All time Angry, with poor level of English. No body knows nothing... I never have found this kind of persons as a receptionist. The hotel very poor, small rooms, broken furniture in WC, poor breakfast...Only have a good location... for the rest...try to find other hotel. I will never recommend this hotel.
