Citadines Bastille Marais more than met our expectations. We had stayed at the Citadines Covent Garden in London previously, and liked having a little kitchen for making some of our own breakfasts and bag lunches, and storing cold drinks. We picked this Paris Citadines because it was the least expensive central Paris one with A/C, which we felt essential for summer. There are other cheaper ones that don't have A/C that would probably be fine in fall through spring. There are 2 Metro stations nearby that got us most places with no more than 1 transfer, and got us in with our luggage direct from Gare du Nord, and out with 1 transfer to Gare de Lyon. The #69 bus to Louvre and Eiffel tower stops across the street (search #69 bus tour on Rick Steves site). Staff were friendly, helpful and fluent in English. Room was an hour late being ready on arrival, but they compensated us with free in-house cont. breakfast next day. Breakfast OK but a bit high at 12e each. Free fairly good Coffee/Tea/Cocoa 24 hours in breakfast room. Room kitchen tiny but fairly complete. Sleeping area a bit tight, but typical for Europe. Bathroom fresh, clean, roomy, with a tub and 120v razor outlet. There were some cooking odors in the hallways, but we didn't notice them in our room. Room was on 5th floor on the main street, but noise level fairly low. In-house laundramat served our needs. Two grocery stores within a couple blocks, plus several restaurants. My wife and I would definitely stay here again.
