We stayed at the Hotel Bastille for 8 nights and couldn't have picked a better place. The hotel was perfect! Clean, fantastic windows opening to the street, and could walk everywhere. Public transit is easy and only a 2 min walk from the hotel. I can't comment on the breakfast, as we didn't eat at the hotel. I loved the fact this hotel is located in a quiet area, yet still has plenty of cafes, restaurants, markets and amazing side streets filled with boutiques and cafes. This hotel is very affordable, given how expensive Paris can be. Love it!
