Hotel Original Paris
Ranked #163 of 1,802 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Myself and my partner stayed at this beautiful and original hotel for 4 nights. I have never been to paris so found this hotel on expedia and fell in love with this boutique hotel. I had no idea where the best place to stay was to be near all tourist attractions but as there is a metro station pretty much outside the hotel thought this would be more than Suitable given the affordable price. I am so glad I found this little beaut!!!!

We arrived on Monday and checked in, greeted by Katia (who is so lovely, professional and very knowledgable of the area) we were celebrating my early 30th birthday. I had asked for a higher level room and a room with a shower rather than a bath, first thing katia made sure was that those requests were adhered to, which was fab. Not only did they match my requests they upgraded us completely free of charge! What a lovely surprise and a beautiful room! We had the crystal room which was completely white, very beautiful, very clean and perfect for us. We were more than happy with our room and slept very well.

The area of Bastille is nice, not a lot there but everything is close by and a beautiful walk along the river seine. We used the metro a lot as my partner had broken a bone in his foot before went oops! I loved the smell of our room in the hotel and had asked katia what the scent was, she took note of my question and that I liked the smell and on the Wednesday presented me with the hotel candle (which was the scent of the room) I mean how lovely is that! I felt so well looked after and so did my partner, the hotel staff couldn't do enough for us, we felt like royalty! We had the breakfast one morning in our room which was lovely and very filling!

I can't thank the hotel and katia enough for our amazing experience and would return again. What made it all more special is that my partner proposed!!! The hotel again treated us so well and gave us a glass of champagne each to celebrate. I was overwhelmed by this experience and have never been treated this well before, I have travelled the world for my previous job in some of the biggest hotels in the world, and I have to say the hotel original was very unique in a good way and I will remember it forever. They made our 4 nights really special and hope the staff will get praise for their good work.

Thank you hotel orinignal! My candle is burning now and makes me feel like I am back in beautiful paris!! :) you made us feel very welcome!

Hello,
Well first of all we would like to thank you for your lovely comment which was VERY much appreciated by all of us, indeed we had to have all the staff here read it :) Katia is sending you a Hello and she was very happy to meet you both and to have been there for you throughout your stay:)!
Very rewarding to hear such great feed back....for all of us so thank you again.
It was great having you here at the Original, and great that you did choose us, for your Birthday and for the proposal! You are very welcome and we were glad to have had the possibility of upgrading you and the champagne was well deserved we could say :) The Crystal room is definitely well liked and great that it did please you too.
As for the surroundings, you are right in saying everything is close by, the river, the Marais and more :)
We hope you had a safe and good return home and we would surely love to have you back in the future for further great and original adventures.
The little mention of the candle burning....very touching :) Take good care you guys and plenty of happiness and more for both!
Sincerely,
Fabien

We can't say enough about this hotel! We wanted to stay in a different area than the usual touristy areas, and this place looked interesting... Well, it was fabulous!! Location is perfect, you're within 5-10 walking minutes of Place de la Bastille, the Opera Bastille, and Le Marais. Plus a nice street market on Saturdays right around the corner (I think on Blvd Richard Lenoir).

The staff is excellent and very willing to assist. Fabien & Hugo always had a cheerful smile for us as we walked in and out each day. The "Honesty Bar" is a nice touch too... Despite all the bistros, cafes, and bars all nearby, it was so convenient to grab a quick beer or whiskey and bring it upstairs to your room.

We specifically requested a shower vs tub on our reservation request. Fabien assured us this could be accommodated, and he came through as promised. We will come back to Hotel Original next time we're in Paris. Highly recommended!

Hello,
Thank you so much for the wonderful comment and you super rating! :) We have nothing to add... you said it all and we could not have put it better :)
It is good to hear back from you and it was really our pleasure having you here amongst us for your parisian stay....and specially to know you loved it :)
Location is also great with a lively side by the Bastille and the more calm and authentic little streets of the Marais District, all one could need or want close by.
We surely hope to hear back from you and have you yet again for the next Paris Trip, this is a deal! :) Take good care and all the best from the O Team.
Sincerely,
Fabien

Parisian hotels are notorious for being poor value and not as described unless you spend a fortune on one of the city's halo hotels....this was the exception in that it was both excellent value and very well appointed.....the design was contemporary and quirky...the room was all white and the bed comfortable with a retro but modern shower. The shower is open to the room so self-conscious bathers need not apply....
It is very close to Bastille metro station and great for access to the city with lots of bars and restaurants nearby...Brasserie des Anges being a great example with lovely but simple food.
The breakfast was simple and OK value, better would have been to visit a patissier and grab a cafe creme somewhere but meetings mitigated against that option. I would happily stay here again and highly recommend it.

Hello,
Thank you for your great rating and comment! It was our pleasure having you here at the Original for your parisian stay. Wow! What a compliment you gave us being "an exception" we thank you for that and it is very rewarding for all of us here :)
Great that the room and our design did please you and indeed, quirky is a well chosen qualifier :)
We are pretty center and indeed with all one could want or need close by, the lively Bastille and the Marais district more romantic and calm.
Hope to hear back from you and indeed to see you again for further quirky original adventures.
Sincerely,
Fabien

Great design, very clean, the staff was very professional and spoke English well. The rooms were cleaned everyday and the airco was good. It's nearby the metro station, with which you can reach the city centre in minutes.

The rooms aren't that big, however it a very spacious bed, the shower was vey good and clean.

Only negatives would be the lack of view, we were on the 3rd floor, overlooking an office, also there was no fridge.

Hello,
Thank you so much for the great review in regards to your Original experience!
Great that you did enjoy our "not so common" design, our staff service and your indeed big bed :)
As you saw, we do have rooms on the front with view and some at the back on our court, those are well liked specially if you want absolute silence :)
In our lounge on the ground floor is located our Honesty bar, with a fridge and all beverages for anyone to help himself....thus the reason for no mini bar in the rooms.
Great also you did enjoy our central location, with the lively Bastille area and the more quiet authentic Marais district.
To the pleasure of welcoming you back here we hope! :)
Sincerely,
Fabien

This hotel was wonderful. It is an adorable boutique hotel. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. It was very close to a main train line and you could also walk to most places in about 25-30 minutes.

We stayed in the Gold room, which was a great corner room on the street. Even with the great street view the noise level wasn't too bad. Everything was quite clean and the bathroom was newly renovated and of a good size.

The only issue with the corner room is that to get the wifi to pick up you had to stand next to the door. It was a bit frustrating to not be able to get wifi while in the actual room, but cest la vie.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view of the street are great. We got a corner room which seemed a bit larger than t...

Hello,
Thank you for the great comment and good rating in regards to your Original experience! Great that you enjoyed it all, your fun and fancy room and thanks for "adorable" modifier :)!
It was a pleasure having you here at the Hotel, in our Golden room, which is indeed well liked and not quite common to say the least. Great that our location did please you, indeed pretty center and right in front of the Marais area.
In regards to the wifi, well this is seldom an issue and we could have tried a reset to simply have all units freshly starting again...do not hesitate next time then :) as we hope there will be one and why not in a wholly different atmosphere but just as fun and fancy :)!
Sincerely,
Fabien

All rooms are different shapes and sizes, tiny, no place for luggage, the décor is different and in some rooms is funky. Most room have no view, some are in basement. Book a superior room if you can. No privacy for shower, glass doors shower or even bath right in the room. Tiny TV on the wall. No in-room bar. Scarce toiletry and towels, prepare to ask for more. You need to book the shuttle to the airport 24 hours in advance, The hotel charges you twice as much as a regular taxi, keep in mind. Plenty of cabs just on the street, no need to use their service. Nice restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: book a superior room, otherwise you will be very disappointed

Interior design, staff and breakfast was amazing. Location a bit far from the main sites but if you don't mind the walk you are still a block from the Marais with great shops and dining. Only note is that our triple room was so tight we had no room for our luggage and it was quite hot on the upper floors even with the minimal AC they had as Paris was unually hot and humid the past few days. Evening staff was very accomodating providing a fan for us.

Hello,
Thank you for having taken the time to share your experience amongst us. Great that you felt the room decor and staff were up to expectations :)! Always great to hear this :)
Well noted on the room size, the Triple room is still about 24 square meters but we do know that parisian standards in terms of room is not in the largest :)
Yes it was indeed hot ! All our units were used full blast and you are quite welcome for the extra fan, we have a few extras for such instances.
Hope you three had a safe return home and to the pleasure of having you back here for further Original times! :)
Sincerely,
Fabien
