“Friendly Place with Great Value for Money”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

The rooms in this hotel are small, that is true. But it's quite usual for Paris. The location near the Republique is also not perfect. Yet the hotel is very charming, friendly and new. The rooms are well equipped, the staff is very helpful. Given the affortable price, Ho Marais is probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in Paris in terms of price/quality ratio. I do recommend it without any doubts.

My wife and I recently spent three days in the Hô Marais, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The room was small, but very intelligently designed, beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom roomy and very well equipped. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The sauna and steam-room in the basement ( a rather beautiful range of stone-walled medieval cellars) can be reserved at an hour's notice (no additional charge), and provide an excellent way of relaxing after a day's sight-seeing. There are no tea-making facilities in the rooms, so we used room service to order two trays of morning tea, for which we expected to pay extra, but were told on leaving that there would be no charge for these. We did not initially take breakfast in the hotel, as we were in Paris meeting friends, and also because we had read a disparaging review of the hotel's breakfast facilities. However on the morning of our departure, the hotel offered us a free breakfast to 'compensate' for a defective lamp in the room which we had not used, anyway! We accepted, and found ourselves in a very pleasant small breakfast room, with one of the best buffets we have encountered anywhere, including a device -- which actually works -- for soft-boiling eggs!

Room Tip: All rooms good

I recently stayed in the Ho Marais Hotel, which is situated in one of Paris' trendiest and hippest neighbourhoods, Le Marais. It is my favourite arrondissement in Paris with small, winding streets that have cafes and shops lined throughout.
The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the area, which means a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Marais, but the walk is a pleasant one taking you past cafes, bars and boutiques. There is, about a 3 minute walk from the hotel, a metro station in case you fancy testing out the local transportation. I always love the Paris metro as it makes you feel like a local in the city of lights!
The hotel is a small boutique hotel with quite small rooms, HOWEVER they are equipped with everything that you will need. If you're seeking space and lavish rooms with grand bathrooms and balconies, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. However, if you're looking for friendly service, unique little rooms with quirky decor and all the amenities you seek in a small space... Ho Marais Hotel is for you.
Quite frankly, it's a little gem that I loved and will definitely be returning too. If not for the location, for the free Nespresso machine located in the lobby, which all guests could help themselves too.
Great hotel... Comfortable stay... Merci beaucoup!!

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. You will love it by the first glance. When we arrived a very friendly receptionist welcome us and he informed us that our room isn't ready but he proposed us to wait for it in the lobby and meanwhile he offered us a Nespresso Coffee. The room was very nice, very nice decoration and a quite large TV. The hotel at all was very clean. The breakfast was wonderfull offering fresh juices, pastry and other delicies. The Hamam & Sauna was nice and was included in the price. The hotel is situated very near the bus station and the metro station and there are a lot of nice restaurants around. We recommend this hotel 100% and we will came back in our next visit in Paris.

Hotel is very stylish, good located at about 2 minutes from Metro Station "Republique". Staff is very welcoming, there is young but elegant atmosphere, rooms are not enormous but extremely clean. There is a wellness area with gym tools, sauna & hammam. Would choose it once again without hesitation.

This is a lovely small hotel just on the edge of The Marais. The two rooms we had were on the small size but this is as we expected. The beds are wonderfully comfortable with high quality linen and the rooms lovely and clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the ability to use the sauna and steam room was much appreciated after a long day's walk around Paris. Two small negatives - no complimentary toiletries which I would have expected in a hotel of this kind and the breakfast is incredibly expensive so we went into the Marais and ate for a third of the price. Apart from that we would stay here again without hesitation (in fact we are already planning our next trip).

Dear Lucy,
We thank you for your comment which helps us to improve the quality of the hotel.
We, also, are very pleased to see that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our hotel.
Concerning the complimentary toiletries, in order to respect environment, we are trying to limit as much as possible the packaging. Otherwise, please let us know which kind of complementary toiletries would delight you for your next stay in our hotel. It would be a pleasure to provide you this service.
Then, our breakfast, cost indeed 16€, but it’s a full and large unlimited breakfast buffet whose product are highly selected.
Our buffet menu is composed of:
Hot sausage, scrambled and soft boiled eggs
Charcuterie and cheese plate
Variety of pastries and breads
Cereals and yogurts
Our Juices are freshly squeezed so as the fresh fruit salad.
Then our coffee machine can provide several types of hot drinks, such as espresso, cappuccino, chocolate and tea.
Maybe, you could tell us which kind of breakfast, you’re looking for when staying in a hotel, it would probably help us to adapt to our guests.
Do not hesitate to contact us for your next stay.
Best regards,
