A small, fairly intimate hotel in a young, dynamic part of the city which hides plenty of surprises. The basic yet extremely charming little guest rooms all feature parquet flooring, just one of the elements which bring a touch of luxury to the place.

    Location 6.4 /10



    You really would be hard pressed to find a hotel in a better location! You'll find yourself at the very heart of the action here, at the start of the Rue de la Roquette and just a few metres away from the Place de la Bastille. From Bastille, the metro lines will take you to the centre of the city and all its prestigious monuments (the Louvre, the Tuileries, the Arc de Triomphe, etc.), as well as to four major railway stations, in no time. Being both easily accessible and well-located for exploring the city, what more oculd you ask for? Located at the foot of the Royal Bastille, this district is full of lively little streets overflowing with bars and restaurants, so revellers can party to their heart's content! A little further on there is a little oasis of peace in the form of the Port de l'Arsenal, where pleasure boats bob quietly on the water, just on the other side of the square, and where terraced lawns drop invitingly down towards the water, making for extremely relaxing surroundings. A quick snooze here will soon make you forget that you're in a city. The Bastille Opera is an emblematic area of Paris, and strolling around here may cause wonder or dismay, depending on your tastes. The hotel is also within walking distance of the Place des Vosges, various nearby museums and the famous Marais district, meaning that this hotel is perfectly-located for exploring the capital.

    Accommodation 6.90 /10

    The guest rooms here initially appear rather traditional, but look a little closer and you'll see that when you take all the decorative details into account, they're really very charming. Firstly, all the rooms have parquet flooring, which as well as being comfortable and warm makes for very pleasant surroundings, and whilst the blue wooden furniture is still rather traditional, it is nevertheless effective, discreet and functional. The rounded wooden armchairs with fabric cushions are another little bonus, particularly as they vary in colour and shape from one room to the next. As well as bringing a touch of comfort to the surroundings, these are the little details which give the hotel its personality. On the more practical side, these old wooden chairs are great for taking the weight off your feet after a long day's walking. The hotel has only 26 guest rooms, and the two in the attic space are particularly stylish. The bathrooms are traditional and come with either a shower or a bathtub and a row of black to break up the white tiling. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms and the televisions broadcast a selection of international channels.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Royal Bastille is tightly tucked away between two new and rather dull-looking buildings which only serve to enhance its perfectly renovated and beautiful exterior, exuding grandeur through its wonderful white facade. Its sky blue guardrails give it something of an 'Île de Ré' aspect which, along with the welcome freshness of the building, inspires a great deal of confidence. You'll no doubt feel relaxed and at ease as you climb the steps up to the entrance, and a warm, friendly welcome awaits when you get there. Just about everything inside has been painted white. The lobby has stylish wood-clad walls and a marble reception desk, as well as carefully-selected lighting inlaid in the false ceilings. The rather small breakfast room overlooks the inner courtyard of the building, with very British-style curtains hung at the windows. Keen to maintain a certain standard of living, the owner has positioned a few trees in pots around the courtyard, the greenery adding a welcome touch of charm to the otherwise rather cold concrete courtyard. You needn't worry when it comes to noise at night, which can be rather worrying when you yourself have had your fill of partying in the streets surrounding the hotel, as the guest rooms are very well insulated. Those overlooking the main facade of the building face the Place de la Bastille and the July Column and its Genie.

      This wonderful little 3 star hotel offers a soft, colourful decor, and designer furniture, all while staying very simple, and with the welcome you'll receive you could be forgiven for thinking you were staying at a guest house. The communal areas of the hotel are very pleasant indeed and there's nothing better than relaxing with a coffee on the comfortable bench seats in the lounge.

      This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.

      The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.

      The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.

      • Location 8.85

      Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
      Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.

      At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.

      The Meurice is one of Paris's best addresses. With its contemporary yet quintessentially Parisian décor realised by great names such as Stark and his daughter. The Meurice is an exclusive haunt. the hotel's main restaurant, Le Meurice, is headed by 3 Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno which is, needless to say, one of the highlights of a stay at the hotel. In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.
