We stayed for four nights in early June. Finding a hotel that offers good value for money in Paris isn't always easy. This is one of those hotels that still has that Paris charm to it. So if you aren't hung up on your wifi to be working fast 24/7 and have more need for a brisk shower to face the next paris-challenge than you need crystal clear television; this is your place.
The place is basic and clean. The staff is friendly, the beds are fine. The shower room is spacious and the shower (with bath) has good pressure. There is a safe for your valuables.
The rooms are recently redecorated and have a fresh feel to it. There is an air conditioning system set to 21 C. Without individual control, you can only hope that when it gets really hot outside, management will decide to drop that temperature a few degrees. I imagine they will, because they are nice people, who seem to know what their guests want.
The best feature of this hotel is its location, just off Place de la Bastille in a quiet side street. This might not seem the most central spot in Paris, but it is, in a way.
For public transport it's a great spot. Three lines of the subway system meet under Place de la Bastille, the 1, 5 and the 8. And to top that off, there is Gare de Lyon just around the corner.
I was traveling with an elderly person, and, knowing Paris quite well myself, anticipated a lot of staircases to climb in the metro. By dramatically cutting down the number of times we had to switch trains and taking a direct train to the Bastille, we made sure every day there was some energy left at night to go out and find that next wonderful restaurant!
There is a (real) bakery around the corner for all of your munchie moments, a night store for water and such,and even a monoprix supermarket close by. The neighborhood around Bastille has an interesting selection of restaurants so if you want to stay in the hood for dinner, there's ample choice!
