We stayed here for one night...one night too long. The rooms are noisy from traffic and other guests. The bathroom had mould in the shower and in the cupboard under the sink. 2 towels and a bath mat. No hand towels,no tissues. Bedside table...if you could call it that...was falling apart. Not one English speaking tv channel. Most hotels would...

We had stayed here for one night in May. The hotel is ok, even good , for the price payed. Location is excellent , with lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. The Charonne metro station is also very close by. The only problem we found was that the person at the front desk was a bit gruffy, not willing to...

Stayed for 4 nights in a superior room. Positives: Good shower , comfy bed, great location, and helpful reception staff. Negatives: lack of hangers and space to hang clothes. No kettle to make tea. Room was a bit on the small side. One pillow each but asked for more. If you a need a basic hotel in a great location...

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.

Five minutes to Charone metro station and ten to Bastille.well located, plenty of good food places to eat and some cheaper takeaways. Old style hotel which needs work. 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.

Dear client I'm very sorry for you bad experience, but unfortunatly we cannot understand if you really stayed with us, or if you made a comment to a wrong hotel , as there is few Hotel des Arts in Paris... Our rooms are spacious with not less than 23 SQM...but if you can better explain in wich room you slept,...

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.
