“Excellent choice in Paris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Original and would recommend it above other similarly priced options in the area. The area was great with heaps of good cafe/restaurants, and the staff impeccable in their attention and friendliness. The room was quite extraordinary, lots of space with a sitting room on the upper level and 2 toilets, great bed, a treat in Paris. We would definitely stay again.

Hello,
Thank you for having shared your quite Original experience and for the great rating. We were all pleased to have you amongst us and you have a big Hello from the staff here :)
Great that the room did please you, and its size! Normally parisian standards in terms of size are not a subject of much ravings so this is good indeed :)
You are welcome for the attention and behavior of our staff, quite the usual and really our pleasure...rewarding to have such feedback too.
The location is well liked and indeed plenty of good little addresses to eat and enjoy, bars and cafés, some with their "terrasses", well, the busy Bastille and the authentic calmer Marais district right in front. Hope you had a safe return home and we do hope there will be a second round at the Original.
Sincerely,
Fabien

All reception personnel was very friendly and helpful. Answered questions, suggested breakfast spots, always made time for us. The traditional elevator was a bit tight, a bit slow, but did the job...and stairs are available for the impatient and sporty types. Windows are double paned in our 4-bed room and faced the inner courtyard. Easy to fall asleep after walking paris cobblestones all day. The themed rooms are the "original" part, but of course we only stayed in one: Alice in Wonderland... was roomy for Paris, with separate toilet and bath rooms.. practical for a family/group of 3 or 4. Modern bathroom fixtures, lights and flat screen TV (didn't turn it on... we were in Paris and had more interesting stuff to watch!! Non?), and free Wi-.Fi.

Location is just next to multiple Bastille Metro station entrances, and a 10 minute walk from the Gare de Lyon.

Hello,
Thank you for having taken the time to share your Original experience....and Original it was as we can see :)!
We were pleased to have you all here for this short parisian stay, great that the Alice in Wonderland room was yes, Original, and up to standards :) On the TV, shame, we would have maybe done a reset for you as we have no trouble with them at the Hotel...we see you survived in the end :)
Thanks for the mention of our Service, always glad to help and talk yes that is us alright!
The location we must agree is quite convenient, with shopping, cafés and restaurants literally all around, the metro just steps away and the quiet authentic Marais district in front of us.
We hope there will be another time and rest assured it would be just as Original and fun overall!
Sincerely,
Fabien

Stayed in Hotel Original from 21 -24 June. Location was exellent and just two mins walk from Bastille metro and a 5 min walk to Place des Vosges. We were in a yellow room on first floor facing main street. At first I thought it would be noisy but excellent double glazing. The staff were really helpful and pleasant. Room was quite small and although we had asked for a room with shower we had a bath actually in the room - separate toilet. Bit quirky but not that great if you just wanted a shower as the water still managed to get on surriounding floor.

Carpet in bedroom and toilet was a bit grubby - everything was carpeted rather than tiled. Honesty bar for drinks tea and coffee was useful. We didnt have breakfast in hotel as it was cheaper to eat out in the many cafes in the area. Would stay again probably but it wasn't a low cost option. But it is Paris!

Hello,
Thank you for having taken the time to write up your experience at the Hotel.
Great that our location was up to expectations....and fun too :)!
Thanks also for the little comment on the double glazed windows of the Hotel, this sometimes is a point of concern prior to one's arrival and in the end there is no problem whatsoever :)
Yes indeed the rooms and our universe are Quirky, Fancy and well liked by most. We are sorry to hear that you had a preference for a shower, we actually did not have any comment to that effect prior to your arrival but neither once here....or we would have done something to accomodate your needs....as we regularly do when possible :) So I guess this will be a next time and so as to give you the opportunity to enjoy a different theme just as Original :)
A Big Hello from all of us here!
Sincerely,
Fabien

The reception people Fabien and Nathalie were excellent. The Sunday gal is a little grumpy so beware- Sunday being a change over day. The rooms were fun, well kept, clean and good bedding.
I would recommend this hotel especially for those looking for an experience apart from the normal hum drum tourist spots. We had liked the latin quarter and stayed in similar 4 star hotels near Pantheon, so this hotel and neighborhood were new territory. I was glad we discovered this neighborhood- Definite good recommendation for all types of adventurers -

Hello,
Well this is so great to hear from you and thank you for having taken the time indeed to post your Original experience. It was our pleasure having all of you here amongst us for your parisian stay. Glad to hear you did enjoy our rooms and their unique character. Thanks also for the recommendation to our readers....for all adventurers hein? :)
Great that this new territory satisfied you....indeed it is quite varied with the busy lively Bastille area and the Marais area with its authentic little streets and shops and Place des Vosges just behind.
We hope your return to reality went well but I think the adventure was not quite over yet if I remember :) Take good care and all the best till next time we will have you back....because we do expect you here for further Original adventures :)!
Sincerely,
Fabien

I love this hotel! The unique decor is surpassed only by the fabulously helpful staff! I felt as though I was staying at a friend's house. I went to Paris for a long weekend -- by myself -- so I was a bit nervous; however, that all disappeared the moment I checked in. FABULOUS staff, especially Fabien! The Bastille area is PERFECT! I fell in love with Marais! The Metro station is right in front of the hotel. Tons of cafes, bars, and restaurants! Perfect area! FABULOUS hotel! I canNOT wait to return!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Gold Room (002). It is beautiful and has a great bathtub! It is in the back of the...

Hello! :)
Well we ought to thank you for your lovely and charming comment! We all read it here and I must say....we smiled :) It was our pleasure knowing you and having you amongst us for these few "Original" days. Great that the Golden room pleased you and great that the loaction was up to expectations :) Indeed Bastille and the Marais offer different atmosphere while being next to each other...and we happen to be right in the middle :) So we do take you up on your words and we hope to see you soon indeed! :) All the best in the meantime and do take care.

The hotel is exactly what it is called-Very Original. The decor and design is very unique and was a nice change from the sometimes monotonous typical hotel setting. The staff is very professional and warm, and was always helpful with making dinner reservations or anything else we need. The location is nice in an upbeat area with restaurants, shops, and easy access to various types of transportation. We were here on our Anniversary and they upgraded us without me even asking for it! Will stay here again. The only minor inconvenience (for us. it may not be an inconvenience for others) was there was no separate shower stall. There was a nice bathtub with a shower curtain going around it, which I had never used before. Other than that, I found all of the usual comforts that I would expect.

Hello!
A big warm Hello from all the staff here to both of you and thank you much indeed for the great comment about your stay amongst our "very Original" atmosphere. Great that it did please you overall. Well noted on the point of the tub...as you know, we have several themed rooms some with showers and some others with tubs. When we do know the preference of a coming guest we do make it a point to have that request fulfilled. So for the next time we do know what to do :)
Great that our location and the lively surrounding was enjoyable...indeed the Bastille is lively while the Marais and Place des Vosges on the more quiet and authentic side....and just in front of us :)
Hope you had a safe retrun home and to the pleasure of having you back here for a round two at the Original :)
Sincerely,
Fabien

This hotel was perfect. The Bastille area was absolutely wonderful and the hotel could not have been closer to a metro stop if it tried. There was a small market next door that carried a decent selection of wine and beer. We stayed in the enchanted forest, the room was HUGE. Two levels with a separate living area and two toilets. It was very dark even with the lights on, but if you opened the curtains during the day, it brightened up. It was also very quiet since it faced the courtyard. The shower was awesome. The bed was very firm, so be prepared for that if you prefer a softer sleeping experience. The hotel staff was excellent and helped us get an airport shuttle for our extremely early flight out of Orly.

Room Tip: The enchanted forest room was excellent for a couple. Big bed, quiet, right off the lobby. The bed w...

Hello,
Thank you so much for your great comment and your high rating! Always rewarding for all of us to hear such good feedback :)
We are glad you enjoyed your "huge" room, the great bedding and the calm in your room. The Enchanted Forest does pleases much and it surely does change from the ordinary.
Great that you also enjoyed our location. True the metro stop is steps away and you are just a couple minutes away from the charming Place des Vosges. Walking to Notre Dame is also pretty straight forward and about 20 minutes by foot.
We hope you had a safe return home and we were all happy to have had you for these few days amongst us and our Original atmosphere :)
Sincerely,
Fabien
