“great position”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We chose BLC on the look of the rooms on the website. We were a little anxious about being outside of the main tourist areas but were more than happy with the position of the hotel when we arrived. The bastille is an easy 10 minute stroll through an area with many local bars and restaurants but not a tourist area, a further easy walk takes you to Notre Dame. The metro is a 2 minute walk making the rest of Paris easily accessible. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly, if I return to the city I would stay at the BLC again.

Room Tip: Room was small but had everything needed. Some road noise as on front of hotel

A lovely hotel, great location to the metro (5 mins), clean room, comfortable bed, great breakfast, friendly staff. An enjoyable Easter weekend. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants peace and quite on the outskirts of Paris but easily accessible to the metro. Plenty of bars, cafe's and very good restaurants in the area and only a short hop on the metro to the main Paris attractions.

I booked the BLC Design Hotel as it was one of the many options that came up with our Eurostar booking - so glad I did, great hotel, very clean, friendly and efficient. Good location (5 mins walk to metro) 30 mins walk into city centre. I wanted a 'different' hotel and not something in a chain, this hotel was very much of it's own, practically everything was white and shiny and mirrors - very mod, very chic -loved it. The rooms had Sony Bravia flatscreen TVs and Ipod docking stations (that were also a mood music and lighting station). The breakfast bar area was great, a lot of choice and some of the best coffee I drank in Paris! Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a rain forest shower - bliss. I borrowed a hair dryer from reception so didn't have to pop mine in my small suitcase. Our room (505) had a small balcony too - which was a lovely surprise. The reception desk was always manned and they were always happy and friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and fresh. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something modern and different and we'd use it again.

Room Tip: Level 5 had small balcony.

It wasn't easy to find the hotel even in a taxi with Sat Nav, but once there the room was excellent. The breakfast area is a little cramped with only one table available, the rest of the seating is on bar stools and I didn't find it that easy to sit down.Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hair dryers had to be obtained from reception, safe in the room, lots of towels, efficient room cleaning, newspapers in the breakfast area. Coffee was excellent, bread, pain au chocolats, croissants were all fresh and warm. The shower was fantastic.
