Bastille de Launay Hotel
Ranked #463 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2016

The hotel is a clean, welcoming hotel with good sized rooms, a decent location and decent services.

The first thing you notice about the hotel is the fabulous welcome, it is that over the top, enthusiasm gone wild, nothing is too much trouble welcome you expect from the US but rarely see in Paris. Really puts a smile on your face. This is all the more welcome because the street the hotel is on is a little run down and bereft of Gallic charm.

The rooms are sizable for Paris as is the bathroom, the beds decent and all is very clean and proper. The hairdryer is one of those stuck to the bathroom wall, steel racking replaces the cupboard but these are small issues.

The location is good as you are within 5 minutes of the fabulous Place de Vosges, the Marais and Bastille. The Metro is very close. One gripe is that the next road along is Boulevard Beaumarchais, no picture postcard itself, seems to act as a racetrack for the entire night, so if you have a street side room the windows have to remain closed; although the sound proofing prevents noise seeping through and the aircon is good.

In summary the hotel is well located to visit the Marais but it would be better to find a hotel in it, the other side of the Beaumarchais, however if there is limited availability and prices are high this hotel is nice and the location not that much of a problem.

Room Tip: Do not take the rooms on the street side if you like opening windows.

The room- perfect! The continental breakfast- delicious! The location- fantastic! The staff- absolutely amazing!! Everyone was so friendly and nice to us even though we could only say about 2 words in French. Lots of great places to eat nearby. If I ever get the chance to return to Paris, I wouldn't want to stay in any other hotel. Seriously, it was awesome.

As a tour guide, hotels are my life. The HOTEL BASTILLE DE LAUNAY is one of the best in which I stay every year. The location, just off the Place de Bastille, is excellent, near the Metro but still very quiet. The rooms are modern and efficient, the breakfasts very good and the desk service the best of any hotel in all of Paris.

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard are airy and bright.

I found this hotel very good. It served all the needs for myself and wife. It had a business section. Where i could use a computer. Itvalso had free wifi. It was a 5 min walk from station. There was a very nice market place close by and a supermarket. Great service. Food was lovely and fresh and the price was right.

My single room was small, but cleverly decorated in a contemporary style so it did not feel cramped. It had windows that opened out onto a tiny, quiet courtyard at the back of the hotel. Air conditioning was available but the September weather meant that I did not need to use it (and I prefer being able to sleep with the windows open). Everything was new, clean and attractive. WiFi worked perfectly, everywhere within the hotel. The breakfast buffet (extra charge) was well-stocked (but there is a cafe just down the street, if you prefer going out for breakfast). I liked the location, on the edge of the Marais. There were loads of interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance, two metro stops were nearby, and as a woman alone, I felt quite safe in the neighborhood both during the day and at night. The price, by Paris standards, was reasonable for this quality of accommodation. I will definitely return to the Bastille de Launay the next time I stay in Paris.
