Another long day today to Paris via Lisieux which is famous for St Therese the Little Flower, a very popular saint both in France and around the world. Diane's parish is named for her so it was interesting to find out a little more about her. After a couple of hours on the road we arrived in Lisieux which was about to start a week of celebrations …
Today we went to the Orsay. We saw many sculptures ands paintings. But after that we went to the Effiel tower and that's what I'm going to talk about. When we got there we ate at a nice small restaurant and then slowly walked towards the lift to get to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We got to go strait up to the second floor because they were putting in a glass floor in the 1st ...
Today was my day to relax and enjoy Paris with my cousin Grace. We explored the open ethnic market near her apartment on the north side of town, gathering materials for a delicious picnic. The market was packed with people – I could barely make it through, I am not sure how anyone in a wheelchair or with a cane could do it. We bought an assortment of Algerian/Moroccan stuffed breads and ...
... that I thought were relatively close to each other turned out to be quite a long walk... case in point with the Champs Elysees. We were all wanting to experience one of the world's major shopping districts, particularly me because I needed new clothes, pyjamas, and underwear. After trying to navigate our way with a paper map - no easy feat for children of the Google Maps generation - we eventually found the Champs Elysees in all its hedge-lined glory. I managed to pick up ...
We arrived in Paris around 9.00pm local time - still light so luckily we were able to navigate our way to our accommodation. Alice had booked our accommodation which was meant to sleep 5 however the bedding configuration consisted of a foldout bed in the wall and three single chairs which folded into beds which made for an incredibly cosy two nights! In the morning we caught ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Marceau Bastille Hotel Paris
Fabulous room! great breakfast! superb Staff! we had a ball, the rooms are small (by american standards) but superbly appointed. the appointments are simple and gorgeous! highly recommend!
Excellent location and newly renovated
Stayed there for 1 night to meet up with a friend. Hotel is newly renovated, very clean, nicely decorated. The reception was very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom a little small, which are like other European hotel rooms. Overall, a very pleasant stay.
We have just returened from a 3 night stay in Paris - we stayed at Le Marceau Bastille. The hotel has recently been refurbished. It is lovely and clean and very modern. Bed line and towles changed daily and the maid did a very good job of cleaning the room to the highest standards.The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They would book us a taxis and make restaurant reservations on our behalf very willingly.
We flew into CDG airport and got the RER train into Paris. The hotel was easy to get to, we got a metro train from de Halles station straight through to Bastille and the hotel was about 2 streets away.
The staff were very pleasant, very helpful and were always smiling. The room was very clean, very nicely decorated and was quite posh indeed, with flat screen TV and nice big bath. (Our room was an 'Urban' style)
Only down side? Not many english channels on the TV, but then I suppose I was in France on holiday!!
Absolutely recommend it...have no worries about what it migt be like, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
This hotel was awesome. The staff was great, the room was great, the breakfast was great and the location was perfect. Literally a 5 minute walk from Gare de Lyon and just around the corner from the Bastille metro.
We had the good fortune to stay 5 nights at Le Marceau Bastille in June 2006. Rooms are pleasantly decorated and offer all that you need. We chose 'eco' and were allocated room 202 which had more room than some of the others. We liked the neutral colours of the 'eco' rooms on the website, but in reality 'urban' rooms have the nod in terms of style, although they look a little claustrophobic on the web. Bathrooms are superb with great showers. Breakfast was excellent. A fine selection of fruit, cheese, eggs, ham, juices, tea, coffee,cereals and pastries - and even though we never made it down there much before 10 there was still plenty available. Staff were excellent, especially Vicktor on reception. The minimalist/gallery feel of reception was a little off-puting as a first impression but we soon got used to it. The rooms and public areas are kept very clean. As for the hotel's location - not the most secenic area but you're close enough to Metro line Number 1, the Marais, Gare du Nord (12 euros in a taxi) and if you turn right out of the hotel and walk to the Port du Plaisance, at the end of the road, you'll get to the Le Grand Bleu - a great place (overlooking house-boats and flower-filled walkways) for a pre-dinner drink/ dinner in good weather. All in all we would highly recommend Le Marceau Bastille. Thanks for a very enjoyable stay.
This hotel was absolutely GORGEOUS inside. It is completely modern, and completely brand new. Our room was beautifully decorated and extremely large and comfortable. The location is also PERFECT, its only about 2 blocks from the bastille area, and a perfect place to stay if you like to party/bar hop, its also only about a block away from the metro. BUT. and this is a HUGE but. The staff wasnt helpful AT ALL. We stayed there for almost a week and the entire time, no one was helpful! The room does NOT include any amenities that would actually be helpful. It didnt include an alarm clock, so we woke up extremely late for 3 days straight. We had to fix our cell phones and a PDA to try to use that to wake up instead. We told them numerous times to please give us a wake up call, and they only did once and it was 30 mins late. Only one woman who worked there actually knew english fluently, but the rest of the staff struggled. But don't let that fool you, they still knew basic english, but still werent helpful. Also, local calls arent free, and be wary of using a phone card there. When we asked if we could use our phone card in our room, we were told, "sorry, you'll need to use the payphone down the street". Also, breakfast isn't included and make sure they dont post it on your bill when you dont have breakfast there, thats what they did to us. Also be mindful for extra charges for things you didnt use, like the mini-bar, that happened to us also. This hotel does NOT have a concierge. So you'll have to make tour/excursion arrangements on your own. Overall, the hotel staff was the worst part. If i had to stay there again i would, but i would be sure to bring my own iron, alarm clock, and info on tours and any other info i might need for my vacation. If you think my complaints arent a big deal, try staying in another country in which you not only dont know the language, but are highly dependent on the tips of others to survive for a week. PS: We really went to Paris w/ an open mind and tried our best to learn the language and read up as much as we could. Paris is a gorgeous city, and the trip ment alot to us. Which is why waking up at 3pm, when the museums close at 5pm was so disappointing, it really affecting our sightseeing. Perhaps we're heavy sleepers, perhaps we were jet lagged, but is an alarm too much to ask for when you're paying $250 a night?
An oasis of calm in a naughty world
We travelled to Paris by Eurostar. The hotel was easily accessible by metro from Gare du Nord and is a short walk from the Seine and Notre Dame.
The hotel was extremely clean and comfortable, and it was clear that great attention had been paid to detail during its recent refurbishment. The staff were lovely, the breakfast substantial, and the bedrooms very clean and well thought out.
The only downside I could find was there was no parking for anyone travelling through Paris by car, though there is a public car park within walking distance.
There is part of me which is loath to share knowledge about this gem, since once the word gets out, it will be very difficult to book a room.
was unsure when I booked - would usually stay in the marais but all decent options there were full. i would not normally look in this part of town.
We had booked a "Privilege" room for 3 nights (160 euros per night which is OK - but the rack rate of 250 euros would have been unwise) and found it reasonnably large - by European standards. The room was extremely clean. The hotel has just been renovated.
