Another Paris Hotel Is Open, And It's Priced Tres Bien

Last week we were mulling over the new Hotel Athenée in Paris, this week our attentions are focused on another new property in la cité of light.
hLike the Athenée, the Marais Bastille is a new hotel opening in an old property of the same name (it used to be a Best Western). It’s been decorated by Michel Jouannet, who also did the cute Villa Madame in Saint Germain, and from the website, it’s looking lovely – bright primary colors mixed with white walls and outré art on the walls.
It’s in a lovely location, too – less than 10 minutes walk to the Place des Vosges and a little further to the Marais and the Rue des Rosiers, one of our favorite streets in Paris.
The hotel opened 12 August and you can currently get a double room for an exceedingly decent price of EUR122 ($155). That rate requires a minimum stay of three nights, though – rack rates start at EUR185 ($235) although we found rooms in September for EUR165 ($210).
All in all, that’s a pretty good price for Paris and the rooms look good. Chouette! We’ll be interested to see how it turns out.
