This place is hands down the WORST hotel I have ever stayed at. I understand that when booking a cheaper hotel in Paris you will come across some problems, but this place had so many issues that I don't even understand how they could let it get to this point. First issue is that you actually don't get to keep... More

Me and my partner stayed here as part of a month travelling around Europe, luckily it was our first stop so it didn't sully the rest of the holiday. The location wasn't too bad, but the hotel itself was pretty poor - I would take some of the hotel pics with a pinch of salt! Poorly aired and very small... More

This hotel represents every thing you wouldn't want on your short break. The road it's in is really busy and is plagued with some pretty unsavoury looking people. The hotel front is dilapidated and representative of the inside. The rooms are tiny, the furniture is old and dysfunctional and the mattresses are so old they look like hammocks.

As many have said location is really good but very noisy, rooms are not as represented on their site - mine was dark, shabby, mould in shower, tv tiny and most channels not working. I paid for a double and this was small, so I wonder what the singles were like. Wifi was good however. Receptionist very pleasant and accommodating.... More

Can not understand why there are so many negative reviews of this hotel. Stayed here for a week, beginning of October, was half dreading it due to previous reviews on T/A .(to which i do not take all reviews in to account as some people will moan at the slightest thing and make a mountain out of a mole hill)...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!! It should be reported to the health authorities. The carpet was filthy, bed sheets were dirty and the bed had hair in it.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighbourhood.

“Stayed on 5th floor and had a wonderful view from the balcony of the Bastille and the street below. ( Views were just like the photos on the website) Only let down was having no lift and having to walk up so many flights of stairs, quite challenging when you smoke 30 cig's a day, but i did it, and had a bit of exercise!”
