The hotel is located on Rue Amelot, in Marais. Its four blocks from Bastille metro station, which is perfect for those arriving in Paris via Gare du Nord (take line 5, six stops, takes approx 12 minutes to arrive). The location is central but the street itself is fairly quiet and the area doesn't feel too 'touristy'. We requested a room with pink walls as we liked the look of it online and the staff accepted our request. However, due to strong smell of paint in the room (there's some work going on in the hotel however it did not impact on our stay, seemed some of the rooms were being freshened up) we asked if we could change it. The staff did not have a problem with this and we got a different room straight away. We stayed in a superior room on the first floor. It was decent for Paris standards (approx 13square meters) with comfortable bed, flat screen tv, air con, small desk with chair, large mirror, safe, mini bar, large windows plus several shelves and railing for the clothes. Wi-fi was free of charge, you get a password at the reception: we watched a movie online and it worked fine so the speed wasn't an issue. Bathroom was quite small but spotlessly clean, with shower and free toiletries. Breakfast was payable extra and we thought was quite expensive (12€ per person) so we did not have one. However, there is a bakery at the end of the street as well as a small supermarket so this wasn't an issue for us. Place des Vosges is a lovely spot nearby and Marais in general is a very pretty neighbourhood, I almost wished I didn't spend so much time in hectic tourist spots! There's a lovely restaurant nearby called La Vache Acrobat where we had two splendid meals. Overall a great stay.
