3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly helpful reception, good location for two Metro lines which lead to main attractions in Paris - clean and comfortable beds. Also with free WiFi ! A good, reasonable priced choice- plenty of places to eat breakfast locally too.

A very welcoming hotel with efficient helpful and friendly staff, situated in a bustling area but close to Metro links to all of Paris, I would certainly recommend this hotel for its convenience for cafes, bars & restaurants.

Really well located ha lots of shops and restaurants nearby plus easy Metro access to all the major sites. Room was nice and clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and staff very friendly and helpful.

The Standard Design Hotel have a good location and good accommodations. The diferencial is a hospitality. I recommended for my friends anda my family because the experience is unbelievable. Salut Paris.

Great location near La Bastillie Staff was very nice and helpful The room inside was nothing close to design. Nothing special.. The carpet in the room and in the hallway is full with stains looks really bad. In the shower not all feature even worked (upper tap in the shower. The elevator is the smallest I have seen in my life. I gave them Average only because of the nice staff and the location. Otherwise its a poor hotel for the price they charge.

I have been staying in this hotel for several years now for business as it is accusable on the metro. The night life is wonderful and the staff are courteous, polite and professional. I think this hotel is good value for money

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.
