... art dealer and collector who was close personal friends with the artists of the day. Modigliani painted a portrait of him that sits in the museum and other famous artists of the day painted him and his wife. He was the first art dealer to curate an exhibit of African art. At the time, the artists whose work he carried (Picasso, Matisse, etc.) were considered very cutting edge. You can imagine after many decades of classical art and the soft colors and landscapes of ...

I have never hugged an inanimate objectso fiercely as I did my suitcase when we got it back to our room. It definitely felt good going to sleep that night knowing I had all my belongings finally in my possession.

We woke to a very cool, rainy morning excited to adventure Paris on the L'Open Tour, a hop-on hop-off bus. After a three kilometre ...
Nearly the end of our first day in Paris - and we are just about to head out for dinner, after exploring the streets around where we have our apartment on avenue Junot, in a lovely part of Montmartre. It is a quiet street, and yet close to Sacre Coeur and other interesting places. We walked through Place du Tertre and past the Moulin Rouge in the Pigalle ...
... Montparnasse, one of the highest points in Paris. The tower offers and interactive 360 degree view of the city whilst displaying information about the landmarks that you can see and the history behind them! We then ventured up to the roof: which was very windy, but worth the amazing view!
A week in Paris and we still hadn't seen the City of Lights lit up at night! It was about time. Dressing incredibly warmly because despite the fact that summer is two weeks away, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Relais du Marais Paris
Super Smashing Great :-)
Couldnt have really asked for more from this hotel. For the price that we paid, it was fantastic value for money. I am surprised at how low it rates on this website, but then I guess thats just down to the number of people who have commented on it!
I didnt really look for much in my accommodation - especially since it was paris!!!! However, the rooms were spotless, the staff were friendly, it was in a great location and there was considerably more space than a lot of parisian hotels. All in all, great value for money. I would definitely stay again.
Happy with this hotel...
We stayed at the Relais du Marais over Thanksgiving. While it was on the slightly off the beaten tourist path (near Republique) this hotel is very accessible to all of Paris--right next to 2 metro stations with many major lines, or by walking for 10-15 minutes. The neighborhood felt safe and was quiet after dark. The rooms were small but everything was new and nice. The staff were friendly and unobtrusive. Breakfast was included, and was basic but good. We were happy overall and felt it was a good deal for the price.
We stayed for 3 nights in January and our room was huge by Paris standards! The bathrooms had been recently renovated and looked new. Everything was comfortable - extra pillows and blankets helped out a lot. The breakfast was limited but good value - tea, coffee, hot chocolate, yoghurt, pastries, eggs, bread, jam etc.
Clean, well-located small hotel
We stayed at this hotel in November 2004. It is good value for money, quiet - we had a room at the back - clean and the staff were helpful. Great location with Temple and Republique Metro stations very close by. If you stay here make sure you take a walk up the canal just the other side of Republique - a beautiful place to stroll especially on a quiet Sunday morning. I can also recommend going up the tower in Montparnasse - fantastic views of Paris!
Good location, good value
A nice small hotel, very convenient location, very close to two Metro stations, one of them a central one (Republique). Lots of restaurants nearby. The hotel is also close to the Marais quarter.
The rooms are small but very clean and include a bathroom and TV. The hotels seems to have been renovated.
There is an elevator.
The breakfast includes a buffet in a tiny dining room. The staff was helpfull.
We have found this hotel a good value and surely will come back.
We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2004.
PRO: 24-hr front desk staff who speaks English. Very clean room. Bathroom is brand new. A small elevator. Phone booth just outside hotel. Excellent breakfast with broiled eggs, orange juice, milk, pastries, yugart, cereal, and more. Quiet room facing the back. Convenient location near Place Republique with 4 Metro lines and buses. All for 79 Euro a night.
CON: Small room. Can hear noises from next room. Phone doesn't work sometimes.
Great location clean and good
The hotel has a very good location.
We had a back room that doesn't have a view on one hand but we couldn't hear the noise from the street on the other hand.
Breakfast was included and was very good, much better than grabbing things on the street.
Staff was nice but not very helpful - They could get along with English but it was easier to use a book.
Rooms were clean and small but with a nice big bed.
Bathroom was very clean with a shower not a bath.
I think there are rooms with a bath.
Room had a working TV (most channels in french...)
Room had AC wich we used becuase the nights were a bit warm.
After reading some reviews about hotels in Paris I was worried but this hotel was just great for the 100+EUR we paid.
