“Nice experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Been there for 5 days with a friend, a very nice stay I would say.
Rooms are comfortable, clean and funny designed (even if not large, as usuale in buildings in the center of Paris). Everybody was kind, polite and efficient. Perfect location, a few steps to Place des Vosges and Le Marais. Breakfast not included, you need an overprice...but I think it's not essential in Paris because even breakfasts are amazing in this wonderful city!

Stayed 3 nights. An ideal location to explore the city being close to Bastille metro. Room comfortable with a great bed and everything we needed if a little small. This is Paris! Shower was fiddly - next time we would request a shower only. We stayed in a Silver room. Would recommend the hotel for a short visit. Friendly staff and quiet.

Room Tip: Go for a shower only. Some rooms have walk in showers.

Hello,
Thanks for having shared your Original experience. We are glad you did enjoy your room decor, your great big bed and our personnel too. Indeed, parisian standards in regards to room size is....well, what it is :) But that does give a bit of charm being Paris as some do tell us. That said, we do have bigger rooms at the Hotel such as our Executive rooms and our Familial rooms.
We hope you had a good return home and yes we do hope to have you back at some point and we can for sure have one of our other room atmosphere, just as fancy and Original as the one you had, and with a standard shower :)
Sincerely,
Fabien

Have stayed 3 times now, every time in a different room, each with its own theme and decor.
Comfortable, well designed, and just a little bit different making it a pleasant change from the norm (I stay in paris at least 10 times a year)
As with every hotel in Paris, breakfast is extremely expensive, so I can't comment on quality.
The style of hotel would make it ideal for a couple staying for the weekend.
Two minutes stroll from Opera, so virtually on the island at Bastille, easy to get to absolutely anywhere in the city. Took about 10 minutes to stroll to from Gare de Lyon, where you can take the air France "Les Cars" coach direct to the airport.

Room Tip: Tried 3 different so far, all good.

Hello,
Thank you so much for the great comment :) Great to hear from you! Yes, it was time to write us a little note too I see. You have a big hello from all of us and it is indeed always a pleasure to have you back amongst us :)
Well, we still have a few room decors you will need to try so....let's see which one for the next time :) Not to worry, as you saw, they are just as unique and quirky as the others. Take good care and see you soon for the 4th round at the Original!

A good sejour in this Hotel. The price for breakfast is correct and the "Metro" is near the Hotel.
The bed was very big and the room was nice.
Just 1 mini bottle of water, that's not enough.
The bathtub is difficult to use for a shower

Hello,
Thank you for having shared your experience amongst us. Great that the size of the bed and our Original atmosphere did please you. The tub is a nice feature, which pleases most, but it can get complicated at times for showers this we do understand and we hiope this was not too hard though... Next time we'll have to specify and have you for a nice room with a stand up shower....the decor just as surprising for sure :) This would mean, and we do hope, to have you back for some more adventures at the Original Hotel. Do take care in the meantime.
Sincerely,
Fabien

Found this hotel through Trip Advisor. Booked a month before and got a god rate.

We stayed in a Gold room on 4th floor. Nice street view. We requested a twin room so we got a superkingsize bed. Very clean & very comfortable. Great rainfall walk in shower and separate WC. Great quirky décor.
We arrived by Eurostar and found our room was ready at 12.15pm. Everyone at the hotel spoke good English and made us feel very welcome. Flat screen TV, but only English speaking station is BBC world news. Free wi fi occasionally lost signal. We did not have breakfast or room service, but the breakfast room looked very nice. There are plenty of reasonable priced restaurants in the same road & a McDonalds just round the corner.
We enjoyed walking so found it a nice walk to Eurostar station & attractions. There is a metro station at Bastille 2 mins walk. Not far to walk to the river Seine where you can get a hop on off boat.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor. we specifically requested a room with a shower rather than a bath.

Hotel Original Paris is not a 5 star full service hotel. There is no one to take your bags, there is no real lobby to speak of, no bar, no restaurant, no gym, etc. However, Paris is not a city where you tend to hang out in your hotel anyway. What this hotel IS, is a wonderful place to call home when living in Paris for a few days. The hotel is clean, the rooms are pleasant, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the location and price can't be beat. You are a few steps from the Bastille Metro which has many lines running through it. You are 1 block from Places des Voges and La Marais which is full of fantastic shops and restaurants. You are also 1 block from Au Levain du Marais which is an unpretentious wonderful bakery run by a cranky old lady. The pastries are amazing! There is always a line and a few surveys have ranked it the best croissant in the city. But i digress, I highly recommend Hotel Original Paris if you want a boutique hotel with minimal services at a great price.

Room Tip: Request a double room, singles are too small and request the first (really second) floor - otherwise...

Hello,
And thank you for having taken the time to share your Original experience :) Indeed we are a small Boutique Hotel, quite designed in a fancy quirky trend, and not a 5 star Hotel this is correct. We are glad though that your stay amongst us was enjoyable overall and we thank you for calling us "Home" :) This is great!! Shame that you did not use our Honesty Bar in the Breakfast Lounge, it is a self service bar with everything up front for your use at any time.
So you did meet the cranky olf lady :)! Good little addresses around for sure.
We hope to have you back indeed and have a try at another unique and just as quirky atmosphere.
Sincerely,
Fabien

Stayed here for 4 days and found our stay extremely pleasant.

Seconds walk from the Bastille metro which can get u pretty much anywhere in Paris via 1 connection and is very handy for the link to the Gard du Nord which is the station that links u with the overground train to the airport.

Great restaurants on and around Beaumarchais Rd which the night porter recommended to us.

Only complaint would be that the room was a bit on the small side but that is to be expected in a boutique such as this. Rooms were extremely clean though and showers and toilets were too.

Staff went above and beyond to improve our stay. Even let me use their scanner and computer for work purposes.

The breakfast is fine if u just want a quick croissant or bowl of cereal before u start ur day.

Would definitely recommend it to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

Hello,
Thank you for the great comment you have posted. It was indeed our pleasure to have met you and been able to assit you during these few days :) Great that you enjoyed your stay amongst us overall. We do know that parisian standards in regards to room size are not the biggest....some say that gives a bit of the charm of the city of light, in the reshaped but old buildings. Glad to know our cleanliness was up to expectations and we do hope to have you back here at some point in the near future...we take you up on this :) Thanks for the recommendation to our readers and do take care in the meantime.
Sincerely,
Fabien
