We are still searching for the perfect or even bearable Marais hotel.....and this is closer but no cigar! We gambled on a 3 star hotel in a perfect location because at a less swanky hotel we were won over by the chance to get a large room/junior suite at an OK price. The photos looked promising||But upon arrival the largish suite with mezzanine had very tall windows which give lots of light, but deliver the extreme noise of the street and all the busy stores right into the room.....the room is virtually on the ground floor.||And the killer is that this hotel has no air conditioning anywhere. It is radiator heating in the winter only. So if you want to breathe or lower the temperature you have to open the windows......and it is like being in a metro station, especially with the mini supermarket next door.||We begged and paid 100 Euros extra for a suite in the back on the courtyard, and it WAS big with one and a half bedrooms and a big bathroom......all run-down but OK, but again NO AIR. And here the acoustics in the large internal 4 story courtyard are like a stadium's PA system. All noise reverberates and echoes and comes in your room.||That includes the people who work in some creative office in the back down below, and they talk and yell all day with their doors permanently open, and of course they enter the courtyard to smoke endlessly, and guess where that smoke goes?. Then there seem to be apartments with families living on lower floors adjacent. It is like an ampliflied theatre and if you want to breathe or be cool, you will hear all and be inundated with smoke. All day and all night.||The downstairs breakfast room is small and vaulted stone......there is no air and it is humid and always full, so you have to go away and come back. The breakfast is good, but it is an ordeal.||With some air conditioning it could be a good hotel, but for now best advice is to only stay there in the winter, and keep your expectations low. With all the additions to escape to basic comfort the total room price was for us equal to a 5 star......so perhaps choose that option elsewhere, albeit your room will be smaller!||

We loved this hotel. It's beautiful and charming and old world. There are exposed timbers and it looks like the walls were upholstered instead of wallpapered. There's fabric everywhere! We were greeted by a cheery and helpful front desk, our room was not quite ready, but we relaxed in the cute entry room and within minutes they had things ready for us. There's a nice sized lift to the upper floors. Our room was super- angled roofline and windows that overlooked our neighborhood. This was the 1st room we stayed that not only provided one fan, but two! No AC, but one fan can help so much on hot nights in Paris. The bathroom was large and clean and had nice soaps, lotion, and shampoo provided. We were in one of the top floor rooms, so if you are tall or have no sense of the top of your head (lol) you might find yourself running into a couple beams when you get to the edges of the room. There's a beautiful stairway to take you back downstairs if you don't need the lift, and it's worth walking down. You leave your key with the front desk who is available 24 hrs/ day. They do take a copy of your passport, like many hotels in France, so don't be surprised by this. Everything was clean and neat and the breakfast area is in a rustic "cave" setting below the main desk. We didn't make it down for food, but it looked super cool and we were glad we went and looked at it. Some loud garbage pickup in the streets below in the mornings, but nothing crazy - was glad to have my Loop earplugs. Would definitely come back!
