It's a budget hotel in a city full of over-priced and over-rated hotels, so expectations should be set accordingly (i.e. low). However, for the price paid I had no complaints. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good, close to the metro and lots of amenities. Wifi was free and working....

Very good room for the money paid. Many nearby shops and restaurants which were very useful and the closest metro station charrón was only 5 minutes walk away making access to the centre very easy. I would definitely use the hotel again when visiting Paris to sightsee

Good place for the budget traveller. Interesting area and plenty of public transport nearly at the front door. Staff friendly. Premises quirky yet relaxed. Would stay there again when visiting Paris next.

Lift is abit shonky and only to level five not six. Breakfast is basic. Rooms are small and in need of a refurb in my view. Shower leaked and there was no...

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and after ready a lot of reviews from different hotels and looking for a good price - quality ratio, Hotel des Arts Bastille was a great option. Most hotels in Paris have small rooms, that is a fact and from my research, most charge extra for breakfast as well. This hotel had...

We had a terrible experience at this hotel. Very noisy. Tiny tiny rooms (even for Paris standards). Hallways and rooms smelled like old beer. We were told that the telephones in rooms were for show only, not functional. We checked out as soon as we could the next morning.

Room small but functional, Ensuite with hot water with OK pressure. Wi-fi chancy. Do not expect extras like tissues, bottled water, written room information. Breakfast extra but good value. Staff were not helpful and English language was a problem for them. Location fine for restaurants and other retail outlets. Small lift available. I would not return to this hotel.

This was a clean, inexpensive hotel - great value for money! The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel isn't in a touristy area which is great! But it was easy to jump on a bus and get to the tourist attractions or if you love walking then walk to them. We love walking so that's what we did! We...

Our room was very basic but clean and fairly comfortable. A fan was provided, which was much appreciated given the temperatures outside. The shower leaked on the floor which wasn't ideal.We didn't bother paying extra for breakfast, opting to go to the nearby supermarket instead. The hotel is quite well situated with a Metro station not too far away and...
