Fun and stylish hotel with real character

Posted Jun 23, 2017
Pros: Fun decor, plethora of purple, warm and friendly staff.
Cons: Would have liked more mirrors in the family room and perhaps a fridge.
Location: Excellent location in Bastille. Huge variety of bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Area felt relaxed and unthreatening.
Delightful hotel. The decor makes a welcome change to the tired, faux plush drapery of most hotels. On arrival to departure we felt genuinely cared for. Lovely breakfast too. Didn't get the chance to use the honesty bar, but it's a great concept. Great access to all the major sites in Paris so especially good for a first time visitor.

Nice Hotel

Posted Jun 8, 2017
Pros: The Hotel interiors, the staff, and its location.
Location: The metro is nearby and the area is pleasant.
The hotel is unusual in a nice way. The staff are helpful and welcoming. I found the room a bit small (but this may be typical of Paris) the bathroom was lovely and all are kept very clean. I would happily return to this hotel.

Cute hotel

Posted Jun 1, 2017
Cute hotel with a metro stop right out in front. Staff are very accommodating. The rooms are decorated in themes. The only suggestion I would add is adding more light ot he rooms. Our room was very dark even with the lamps around th bed.

We stayed at the hotel original for two nights. The hotel is amazing and very quirky. The rooms are beautiful and each designed differently with theme.

Great location. Access to everything magical.

Good location for a tourist accommodations. A bit small if you have a lot of luggage. Tiny elevator that was unreliable at times. Overall, a good choice.

Great Hotel in a great location

Posted Apr 27, 2017
Pros: Location
Location: It is in the heart of paris near the marias and on a metro line that is 50 ft from the front door. Great little restaurants in the area.
This is a great little hotel right at the Place bastille and only steps from the metro stop. The staff was great and informed. It is a pretty funky hotel, so it may not be for everyone. Rooms were all decorated in different styles for example. I can't say enough about location and the pleasentness of the staff.
