Amazing hotel in a beautiful area

Posted Dec 4, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful. After having spent a few days in a more tourist-y part of town, staying near the Bastille was very refreshing, quiet, and down to earth. Definitely stay here for a more "storybook" Paris experience. The hotel itself was clean, the breakfast was wonderful, the room was spacious, and the decor was intriguing (in a good way). Definitely a nice spot to stay alone or for a romantic getaway.

Good location

Posted Nov 28, 2016
Pros: Location.
Cons: Amenity, facility.
Hotel is within walking distance to many of the top attractions, which was very convenient. However, I was not notified of some charges, such as the rental of an adaptor, when I checked in. The fee (10 euro for rental, which I could probably just buy one with a similar price) didn't come up until I saw my bill during the check-out process. Other than that, there was no coffee maker or water kettle in the room, which was quite disappointing. Among all the hotels I have stayed in the past, at least one of these, if not both, would be available in the room. The staff said that I could get coffee or tea from the bar area, but those aren't free. There is definitely room for improvement when it comes to overall amenity.

Déception!!!!!

Posted Nov 15, 2016
Chambre qui d'après le descriptif du site de l'hôtel ne correspond pas à la chambre que nous avions réservé!!!! Chambre soi disant "executive", petite, très peu fonctionnelle, inondée à chaque douche!!! La télé s'est le miroir, pas ou peu d'insonorisation sur le boulevard, par contre elle est jolie et originale la décoratrice s'est fait plaisr, mais elle aurait du y faire un petit séjour.... Personnel très sympathique, efficace et toujours souriant Hôtel très bien localisé Prestations d'un hôtel 3 étoiles...

Bonjour, Nous vous remercions pour votre retour concernant votre expérience à l'Original et surtout de nous avoir fait part de ces quelques points de déception que nous avons bien pris en compte soyez en sûr. Votre chambre au deuxième étage était bel et bien une Exécutive sous le thème de la Forêt Enchantée. Vous avez d'ailleurs soulevé un point très important car il y avait en effet une erreur de présentation sous la catégorie de nos chambres Exécutives sur notre site : vous avez donc permis à sa résolution rapide. La description que vous avez pu lire correspondait à une de nos chambres de première catégorie sur le thème des 7 pêchés capitaux : catégorie inférieure à la votre, & de plus petite superficie. Nous devons nous excuser encore une fois pour ce désagrément et surtout pour cette impression trompeuse que vous avez ressenti une fois arrivé dans votre chambre. Les descriptions et d'ailleurs l'ensemble de notre site a bien été revérifié et validé. Comme vous l'avez peut être constaté, nous avons des chambres pour tous les goûts, clair, sombre, coloré, avec douche, baignoire et même baignoire ouverte au beau milieu de la chambre, comme la votre. Nous vous aurions volontiers proposé une de nos autre chambre plus à votre goût et confort si nous avions été informés à la réception. La déception est partagée compte tenu de votre retour, seulement une fois l'hôtel quitté. Nous aurions, sincèrement, aimé résoudre ce déconvenue en direct. Nous espérons que vous gardez au global un agréable souvenir de votre séjour parisien. A bientôt, La Direction

Bellissimo Botique hotel in piazza della Bastiglia

Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: L'hotel,comodissimo all'uscita 9 di piazza della Bastiglia, è una piccola botique arredata e ristrutturata in un misto tra il magico e il modernariato. le camere sono ampie,e spaziose. Il letto nella versioen King size è qualcosa di incredibile. Doccia capiente in un bagno non troppo grosso.
Cons: Purtroppo in Francia il bidet non è contemplato, e oltre a ciò l'assenza del bollitore per caffe/ te in camera. per il resto tutto perfetto!
Location: Comodo alla metro, presenta nei dintorni il mercato della bastiglia, diversi ristoranti e bar.

그다지

Posted Nov 10, 2016
Location: 바스티유 오페라가 가깝게 있고 바로 옆에 극장이 있어요 근처에 식당도 많구요
너무 춥고 좁고 힘들었어요. 객실이 정말 조그맣고 밤새 건조해서 목이 아팠습니다. 위치는 메트로 가까이여서 좋습니다. 밤에 근처에서 음식을 먹거나 하는것도 편했구요.

Hello, We thank you for getting back to us in regards to your original experience. We are very surprised about the situation in your room. We could have shown you how to operate the heat in your room should we have been informed and even provide an extra heater....shame indeed as you had to endure the cold during your stay. We are very sorry to hear this only now. Hope you are better and the return home did go well. Sincerely, Fabien

Stylish hotel in a nice neighbourgood

Posted Nov 7, 2016
Pros: Nice staff, great location, great design.
Location: The area itself is fantastic, with a lot of restaurants, cafes, interesting shops. But also it's very much in the city center, close to all sights.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Hotel Original, even if it was only one night.
