The hotel was impeccable, extremely clean, good wifi and very very helpful staff. The rooms are small as is to be expected in Paris,... More

Location is within walking distance from the Bastille square, which I find convenient. Restaurants around are much nicer than across the river in the quartier latin, where I have yet to find one that's not a tourist trap. In addition, this hotel is located on a quiet side street. Although their single room is tiny, given the price that they... More

My husband and I returned last night after staying seven nights in Paris at the Bastille de Launay Hotel. This is a small, quiet hotel that had everything we needed; an extremely comfortable bed, it was clean, the room was not large but certainly not the smallest we've seen in Europe and the nicest staff I have ever dealt with....

My partner and I stayed here for a 2-night stay and were delighted with the high standards of this hotel. The staff are really helpful and very friendly;the rooms are modern, bright and immaculately clean. The location is wonderful - my favourite part of Paris!

I spent a week in this hotel and loved being here from the minute I arrived. The staff is warm, friendly and communicates well in English. A big thanks to Olivier who went over the top with his valuable suggested walks in lesser known parts of the city. There is a small library in the lobby which offers tour books,... More

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

Neighbourhood Profile
Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighbourhood.
