Great hotel near many sights.

Posted 18-Oct-2014
Pros: Clean, safe, nicely decorated (contemporary feel), helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing that comes to mind.
Location: Victor Hugo residence, and that general neighborhood with lovely art galleries.
The staff was wonderful, from the front desk to the housekeepers. We had them move us to room 51 which had a view of the street and roof tops of other buildings. We had no issue with street noise and in fact slept in most days. The breakfast was fine and served in an interesting "cellar" room. There was no shortage of hospitality. We felt safe walking the neighborhood and located several great cafes and restaurants.

Well situated hotel near Bastille and the Marais.

Posted 08-Oct-2014
Pros: The friendly reception staff.
Cons: Breakfast could have more variety.
Location: Bastille and the Marais are close by so plan a visit to the Place des Vosges and to Bofinger restaurant of course.
The reception staff at this Hotel were exceptionally friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and any request was met quickly and professionally.

Good Hotel Near Place de la Bastille

Posted 21-Aug-2014
Pros: LOCATION. On the edge of le Marais; near the Metro "Chemin Vert;" and within walking distance of Place de la Bastille, the Pompidou Centre, and more.
Cons: Bigger, softer pillows.
Location: This is the Hotel's great advantage, described above.
The rooms are tiny, but that was expected. The staff is friendly and willing, but not always able to be helpful. There is, for example, a strict policy on check-in time -- never before 3:00 PM. This apparently arises from efficiency, so who can argue? We dozed in the small lobby until our room was available, since we had been on the train since very early in the morning. The hotel is spotless, which must be hard to maintain in such cramped quarters. But again, the cramped quarters are par for the course for reasonably-priced hotels in Paris. Security is reassuring -- noone gets into this hotel without having a staff member open the door. Free Wi-Fi worked just fine. Breakfast was good, although we ate there only once, given that coffee and a croissant can be had very cheaply in Paris. This is a great place from which to explore the fabulous Marais area by walking, and the Metro puts one in touch with all other areas of the city as well. Since our travels don't usually involve much time in a hotel room, this was perfect for us.

Excellent location

Posted 20-Aug-2014
Initially there was a hick up with the booking and I was notified that it was cancelled at the very last minute ! Luckily my friend who had arrived early paid in full and saved the booking just in time. If this was not the case I would have given this hotel full ranking . Staff was very friendly and helpful . Location was perfect for commuting via metro and room was clean . Would stay there again ..

Pros: Excellent, friendly staff.
Cons: Bathroom could use a little work.

fit our needs

Posted 02-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
the staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Room was comfortable and suited our needs. We were near 2 metro stops, nice bistros in area. It is listed as Marais area but really closer to Bastille.

Great stay!

The Hôtel Bastille De Launay is in a great location! We had a fab room on the 5th floor (53) overlooking the street. We didn't spend much time in the hotel but the beds were very comfortable, the room were really clean and the staff very helpful. Location, location, location!

Great value. Super location.

Posted 04-May-2014
Nice cosy hotel with super helpful and friendly staff. Great location with a pleasant 5 minute walk to great food / sights and and entertainment. Would definately stay there again when in Paris. Bright rooms that are kept really clean. On sight breakfast is good value (if you eat up big) but there's plenty of places to eat in the area.

A pleasant surprose

Posted 14-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
To be clear, the place is small: the rooms, the elevator, the lobby. But the rooms are very nicely done, everything is new and clean. The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful. The location is excellent. You are 2 blocks from a Metro stop and a short walk to Bastille. We had a great stay and the price was excellent. We'd stay here again
