Charming, Delightful, Convenient & Welcoming

Posted Sep 14, 2017
Pros: Edgey Design Honesty Bar Check-in & Service Staff Bathtub in Room View of Eiffel Tower Comfy Bed & Great Location
Cons: nothing
Location: A short stroll to Place des Vosges which is surrounded by exquisite architecture, late night cocktail bars and art galleries.
A well maintained boutique hotel offering sitting on the edge of the Le Marais Arr. Walking distance to great bars, art galleries and cafes. Thoroughly enjoyed myself while on my recent stay. Coming back to my 6th Floor City View Room where I could watch the Eiffel Tower light up at night was breathtaking. Thank you to the Staff for this beautiful room and the impeccable service I experienced during my 3 night stay. When I return to Paris on future travels I will be sure to book the very same room. Thank You

Great find, friendly staff, and close to subway

Posted Sep 12, 2017
The rooms were comfortable, the subway was a half block away, and the neighborhood had lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff was always friendly and helpful, breakfasts were great. A good value for Paris.

Lovely little boutique hotel. Great location and I loved the funky decor. Everything was brand new and well-thought out. The room was not large but perfect for a quick weekend in Paris

Great Hotel well located

Posted Sep 4, 2017
Booked for 2 nights. Nice room very clean and well maintained. Well located and spacious. Loved everything except the idea of having to leave a key at the front desk every time I stepped out . That annoyed me in 2017 that they should have access to my room while I am away. As well night shift people were less than friendly almost like I was disturbing them askkng a bunch of questions before they handed me my card. I get Why the questions, just be more pleasant! Overall still recommend but suggest they move into this century with key management. No hotel I have ever stayed in any major city In the world asks us to hand it over everytime.

Hello, Thank you for this great rating and comment :) It was our pleasure having you at the Original for your Parisian stay. We have well noted your point about the key and the inconvenience this did create. It is purely a point of security and as well to have our guest come by reception so we can interact and see you all :) Rest assured if one wants to keep it with him/her it is totally understood and fine. We hope there will be a next time and why not in a totally different decor :) Sincerely, Fabien

Lovely boutique hotel in a great area of Paris!

Posted Sep 3, 2017
My girlfriend and I visited Paris for a long weekend away. We were welcomed by very pleasant and helpful staff who maintained these qualities throughout our stay. Having paid a little bit extra for an 'Executive Room' we were allocated 'The Crystal Room' which was a beautifully decorated white room with ever-changing fibre-optic lights and crystals ("") on the walls. The room was beautiful, as was the en-suite which was open to the bedroom. One downfall to note, which was not a problem for us but may be for somebody else, was the shower. The shower itself was incredible - powerful and easy to fathom. However, the space was a little small and as the shower door opens inwards, this made it slightly difficult to get out of the shower. I know that had my Father been staying in this room, he would not have actually been able to get into and out of this shower as he is very broad. I doubt this can be altered but worth noting, nonetheless. We didn't take advantage of the €12pp Breakfast, however having eaten out every day this seems like very good value. Hotel is great for getting around, with Bus stations outside the front door as well as the Bastille metro station which is a direct line to the centre of Paris, great for attractions such as the Louvre etc.. Overall I would happily recommend this hotel to my friends who are looking to get away for a few days!

Unique hotel by the Bastille

Posted Aug 9, 2017
This lovely boutique hotel made our first trip to Paris even more memorable. The staff and concierge service were very helpful, we had a free breakfast included every day, our room was spacious (for Europe), beautifully decorated in an "Alice in Wonswrland" theme, clean and comfortable. The Metro is outside of the door and it's a short walk to numerous restaurants, shops, a lovely park, the Seine and Notre Dame. The Metro was easy to navigate, safe and uncrowded - and can quickly get you to anywhere you would want to go in Paris! The whole vibe of this place was fun and charming.
