“Great hotel but unreliable and slow internet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Very clean modern tasteful hotel, a 5 minute walk from Bastille Metro and less than 15 minute walk from the Airport bus at Gare de Lyon. On a slightly nondescript side street near a loading zone for a supermarket, so sometimes a lot of delivery trucks parked nearby, but not a big problem. Rooms small but very clean and modern.

My only complaint was the internet service. It was unreliable and usually too slow even for audio-only skype. It disconnected at least once every hour, which the desk said was for security reasons, but I wasn't convinced that was the reason. But the staff were very attentive and friendly, and it was an enjoyable and otherwise problem-free stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back off the tiny courtyard are quiet but no view. Rooms at the front would have a view...

This is a nice property on a quite street (quiet can be hard to find at times in Paris). It is convenient to the Bastille and is not far from two train stations. It is a bit of a walk from the river and most tourist stuff.
The rooms were small but serviceable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was reasonably sized and had a full tub. There was a nice sized Flat screen TV mounted on the wall at the foot of the bed.
We appreciated the breakfasts here and the food selection was pretty good.
Lobby and breakfast area are nicely decorated with art from local artists.
Enjoyed the stay,

Room Tip: We had a Small room as is typical in Paris, not sure if larger rooms are available.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't fault the place. The staff were so friendly even with our lack of French they understood us clearly. The reception staff were especially pleasant, stopping what they were doing to greet us every time. The room was ideal, we choose the urban room which was decorated in bright purple and red. The room wasn't overly big but thats to be expected in a big city hotel. There was a safe for valuables which we found very handy. The breakfast was great it was a continental menu and they had a wide selection. It was served in the dining area which was a modern art gallery. Again the staff were very pleasant and offered tea and coffee. The hotel is a 10 min walk from Bastille however the big tourist landmarks are a bit further with Notre Dame being the closest and even it was a good half hour walk but we figured out how to use the bus system to get about. The Gare Du Lyon train station is a 10 minute walk away also. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if we ever come back to Paris we will be staying here.

Me and my gf spent a weekend in Paris and we enjoyed the stay at this great hotel! They even offered us a glass of champagne as welcome!!! Rooms were colourful as same as hall downstairs full of beautiful paints. Location is great, few mins walk from Bastille and Gar de Lyon (it looks actually in the middle).
Great room service with breakfast, if I come back to Paris I'd definitely choose this hotel again!

Hotel was comfortable. Interesting art exhibition in the lobby. Room was spacious, bed comfortable, bathroom with bath and shower. Close to Canal St Martin near the Seine. Short walk to Gare de Lyon and 10-15 minutes walk to Gare d'Austerlitz.We only stayed one night, but would be happy to use again.

Room Tip: Was very quiet for us, but it was August. Road is fairly quiet.

We stayed for one night on our way down to the côté d'azur having dropped our car at Gare de Bercy for the auto train.

The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the hotel was clean and calm. We were pleasantly surprise by how good / fun the lobby art was, whilst the reception recommended a good local Brasserie, Le Tarmac, for dinner.

We will definitely stay here again.

Le MB is a wonderful hotel - sleek clean, marvelous design,the breakfast keeps you going all day, attentive service with a personal touch.
It feels like home from the first moment being there, thanks to all members of MB staff, especially to the assistant manager Victor Emmanuel - he is truly a soul of this place. Have to mention unusual art exhibitions, that changing twice a year and thanks to Victor Emmanuel each time coming out very interesting and reveal something new.
All in all MB is a great hotel and for me - it is an ultimate place to stay in Paris for a years now.
