We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2018. I didn't know quite what to expect.

I had heard that rooms in Paris were expensive and cramped. All my accommodation research had told me to avoid tourist traps but also stay close enough to the city centre to avoid being out in the middle of no-where. Finding the perfect place to stay was fast becoming an overwhelming and difficult task, all the while places were getting booked up for our travel dates!

I came across the Hotel Exquis by chance, the price was good, the rooms looked fun and it seemed to be in a decent location. We booked one of the larger double rooms because we were staying for three nights, and I'm pleased we did as it was still quite a squeeze - perfectly reasonable but you don't get a lot of space.

We loved the room, especially the shower with little twinkling led lights in the tiles. Everything was well thought out, although some people might find the layout a bit too intimate. The shower cubicle is next to the bed, you can pull a curtain across if you want to shower in private. The toilet had its own space around the corner from the rest of the room. Everything was clean, the shower was sparkling, it looked brand new it was hot and powerful. The bed was large and comfortable and the rooms were cleaned each day. The one thing that could be improved is to provide means to have a hot drink. There was a kettle in the wardrobe, but no cups or tea bags/coffee. There is a coffee machine in the breakfast room, with an honesty box (suggested price for coffee was €3 I think, which seemed steep).

The decor might not suit everyone's taste, but it had way more character than a big chain hotel in the same price bracket. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the whole place has quite a relaxed feel to it. We also loved the view from our room, out onto the street, the weather was beautiful during our stay so we had the windows open quite a lot. There are lots of bars and restaurants on the same road, there's a lot of people about, so it could be quite noisy, but shutting the windows did also shut out the noise. The room has air-conditioning if desired.

The location was perfect, there are two nearby metro stations (5ish minutes walk) it felt like a very safe area, with lots going on. There were plenty of good places to eat and drink just outside the hotel doors, we tried a different place each day. Also one of the best patisseries is around the corner, which we visited for Sunday morning breakfast. I would definitely stay at this hotel and in this area again, it was perfect - close to all the sights and tourist areas are in easy reach but it felt authentic and like a proper living part of Paris. There was even an antiques/market set up all along the street on Sunday morning, you could spend hours wondering around all the stalls.

The Hotel Exquis was a great little hotel, I recommend it without reservation.

We stayed here while on a business trip. Upon walking into the hotel I was presently surprised at how well it was decorated. The rooms are small, but the decor makes up for it. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel is in a really trendy location with cool shops, bars, and restaurants. What really makes this hotel stand out though is THE SERVICE! Between Jean- Baptiste & Tidiane they helped us with practically everything from directions to get to our conference to helping us at the post office. These two are by far some of the nicest people I have ever met. I will be staying here whenever I come back to Paris!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Exquis. The location was brilliant...close enough to get to all of the sights and had excellent restaurants / bars / bakeries on the doorstep. Loved the rooms and how much thought had gone in to the design. Thought the sparkly lights in the bathroom were a great touch. Staff were very helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.

We spent 2 nights in this lovely hotel. Loved the colours, design and friendly atmosphere.
The rooms are small (it's Paris) but well designed. The breakfast much, much more than coffee & croissant. A good breakfast buffet (despite being Paris).
We will come back!

If you are looking for a true Parisienne Hotel experience, this is where you stop your research and book immediately. Everything was perfect for my stay in this joly good hotel. Right from the rooms to the Breakfast. I have had the opportunity to experience breakfast at many different parisienne hotels and i can say with confidence that what this hotel offers is the best in class. Where most hotels in Paris offer just the traditional french breakfast like orange juice, cafe and a croissant , they have a great variety of spread to serve people with all kinds of diet.

Location wise it is situated at a stone throw distance just a mere 5 to 7 minutes walk from the heart of the bustling streets of Bastille, yet at a calm street where you can find all the calmness you need for a good nights sleep. Not to mention the kind and super friendly team of receptionists who were ready to help instantly 24 X 7.

My 100 % recommendation to all without any hesitation.
