Mercure Paris Bastille Marais

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was afraid of the size of the room being too small but it was descent for a Capital. Team service was kind. Breakfast was good. I recommend this hotel. Being close to Bastille there are numerous restaurants to please your taste. also PARKING around the area was fairly easy compare to other districts of Paris.

This is an excellent hotel - well run and attentive staff. It is also well placed to go almost anywhere and explore local restaurants if one arrives late at the weekend! . It is comfortable and welcoming especially since our two daughters arrived (from London) quite late.

Well, We've come as a couple for 4 nights in Paris and we made a pretty good choice. Staff is very lovely and willing to help, rooms are clean and sufficiently large (for Paris). You get some Tea and Coffee in the room, slippers and robes and the rest of a regular 4-Star hotel. Breakfest was VERY expensive (20euro pp??) so we skipped and grabbed food outside. The only thing which was unbearable was the WIFI, or should I say, the lack of it. There is no internet at this hotel, at all. They said they had temporary issues, but 4 days...? comeon. In any case, it was so horrible that even the PC they provided in the lounge was unbearbilty slow to surf. So to cut it short, nice hotel, but if you need WIFI (we did) this is NOT a hotel for you.

The hotel is in a good location and was very clean too but the staff was so so rude. They did not have any manners to speak to their customers. The receptionist was jumping down my throat when I couldn't understand her. The other receptionist kept calling us and was speaking in a boisterous harsh tone to tell that people are complaining of the noise from our room whereas we were just talking. It's not our fault if your walls are thin. We were on holiday, can't just quietly sit there. Places are made from people and if people have this sort of altitude then tourists wouldn't care if you have Eiffel Tower or Disneyland.

I was initially given a room on the 1st floor, right next to the lift, which would be noisy,so I went to request a better room and was given one on the 2nd floor away from the lift. So although the room didn't have much of a view, it was really quiet at night. It was small but did not feel cramped, and I really liked the plush pink and grey/ silver colour scheme.Excellent shower, bathroom looked recently refurbished.However, the loo roll was somewhat awkwardly positioned, (digging into my arm!) Only wall-mounted shower gel. Really comfortable bed, and adequate provision for simple herbal tea or instant coffee.I didn't opt for the breakfast,which was 17 euros. The best thing about staying here was that not only is it moments away from the entrance to Voltaire metro, it is also pretty easily walkable to Place de la Republique, the Marais ,Place Bastille (via Rue de Roquette, which contains a number of good breakfast options such as Cafe des Anges and La Fee Vert), and a little further on to the Ile St Louis and the Seine, if you like a walk.It's in a busy , working neighbourhood with boulangeries and supermarkets, so feels like "real" Paris, while being easily accessible to all touristy areas. The staff were unfailingly helpful, and the whole place felt clean and safe. Would stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It is situated near Metro station Voltaire (footstep away), connecting you everywhere throughout the city. The neighbourhood is rather calm but you’re a few blocks away of “Place de la Bastille” where you’ll find lot’s of possibilities for evening activity. We had a spacious room on the top floor (paid a little extra), with a comfortable queen size bed. A little balcony (accessible) with a nice view over the neighbourhood. Room was equipped with a nespresso machine offering me every day 3 delicious coffee moments. Very clean well maintained bathroom with shower, toilet , and a spacious sink with hairdryer. Staff is very kind, and every time of the day someone was available at the front desk to help you. Breakfast offers both savory and sweet food. Cheese, ham, eggs, bacon, sausages , jam, bread , viennoiserie , coffee , thee , juices , fruit , …. Everything you need to boost your energy before discovering this beautiful town. For a couple of years I’m quite a fan of the Accor concept. They offer a broad range of hotels with each individual concept offering correct value for money. Staying at this hotel was again a confirmation of my positive Accor opinion. Thank you for the service during our stay.

I recently visited this hotel for four nights with my teenage daughters. We had a first floor room which was spacious, modern and clean. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of choice and an abundance of food. The best part, however, was the friendliness of the hotel staff. They did everything to ensure our trip was enjoyable, and I can't thank them enough. The hotel is outside of Voltaire metro station so very easy to access all of Paris. There are also plenty of restaurants nearby and a Monoprix supermarket within 2 mins walk.

This is a very nice hotel compared to other ones with similar budget. The room was small but very nice decorated, simple but pretty and clean which is difficult to find in Paris (usually old furnitures,rooms or decoration if you look hotels with similar rates) it's perfect for solo travel or couples not sure if they have bigger rooms for families. We stayed 6 nights and were very pleased with the location (not very near the principal attractions) but the Voltaire metro station was just across the street and it took around 25 minutes to get to trocadero or the Seine river. There are many restaurants around the area and specially a little place just in front where they sell really good paninis and pizza for a lower price than regular restaurants and until 1 am. The breakfast is served until 10 am so you need to be early there to find a table but that's the regular schedule at Paris. I personally didn't like much the scrambled eggs maybe that's the way Parisian eats it not sure but at least they served a little variety like eggs, ham and sausages ( another hotels don't) The staff was very nice and helpful and we were very pleased with them. If you are looking for a good rate and planning to move around by Metro this is a very good option.

Stayed here for 5 nights on our visit to Paris. Wanted a Queen or King (USA sizing) and got it. Room was nice, including free drinks for our stay. Best thing was the front desk staff. They were very helpful and accommodating, and we certainly test them . . . Next best thing was the location. Metro 20 feet from door and supermarket 5 minute walk as well as numerous markets and restaurant. McDs 20 yards away (we never ate there). Breakfast was only place where we felt improvement could be made. Very small kitchen for large buffet spread. Eggs went from watery at open to dried out at end of morning. Bacon (not american style) was under-cooked or missing many mornings. Rest of extensive buffet was of good quality, so if bacon & eggs is not your thing (it is mine ! !) you will likely be happy with the offerings. Staff was delightful and I think they did best they could with the very small and limited kitchen facilities (no other meals are offered).

We stayed for 3 nights and although the front office staff were pleasant there were some short comings. The room and bathroom were small and there was a lot of noise coming from the inside garden. There was no bacon and sausages left one day and the waitress refused to replace them although we were early for breakfast. (Every morning there was something missing, coffee , water or other products and it was taking ages for them to be replaced ) It was a convenient location with Voltaire metro stop next door. Overall it seemed a limited service hotel and probably we won't return as there are other Mercure hotels with more amenities to offer.
