Paris weekend

This hotel was reasonably priced compared to other Paris hotels. The room was small (typical for Paris), but nice, although the bathroom is a bit outdated. It's a great place to stay if you don't mind walking or taking the metro. There is a metro station close by, but we ended up walking the 10 minutes to the Bastille station instead. The neighborhood is wonderful on it's own, with lots of bars and places to eat and shop. The parking garage was a huge plus too, even with the extra charge.

Try to take the metro instead of cabs. It's a pretty easy system and will save lots of money. Beware that the metro doesn't run late-night, though.

Would stay here again

The room was small but clean and just what we needed. the beds were comfortable and the breakfast good. It was well placed, two minutes from the metro with a budget bar/cafe right next door and two small supermarkets very close by. What really gave our stay that special feeling was how lovely the staff were. The young man at the desk drew out my shy son and encouraged him to ask for things in french, giving him lots of praise and a real boost. On the last night, when we had a crisis at home they couldn't have been more supportive even though there was nothing that could be done. We really felt looked after. I'd happily come here again.

Spring break in Paris

Hotel was very clean and well kept and the staff were friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was good but rather expensive at 12euros. Nice to have a kettle and tea/coffee in the room in a Paris hotel. Pity they didn't replace the T bags once used! Also didn't replace one of the cups which was broken. The area around Charonne was full of interesting shops and some good cafes but the metro was slightly out on a limb so that it involved quite a few changes to get to other areas of Paris. I would go to this hotel again.

Too narrow room and showerroom

It was very hard to find a space to open a large suite case. The shower room was very small, therefore sometimes I touched the switch and the comfortable water changed suddenly cool or hot. The stuff was very kind and introduced a good restaurant near there though many closed restaurant for Monday.

Real values in life

One of the best experiences in life.... Very friendly, nice and helpful staff, really the most amazing we've ever seen! Great value and price, ten minutes bus route to the heart of Paris, nice coffee and dinner places close to it. The room was clean and nice, and the buffet breakfast great! Next time we go to Paris, we'll stay again in Classics Hotel Bastille...

Clean, supportive, informative hotel

I stayed at the Classics with my daughter for 6 days. I would recommend the superior room as the regular room too small for 2 people. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The night manager Alvoro was super great, he informed us of many things we didn't know, like getting the 69 bus to see the city as it stopped along the way, also bus 76. He helped us with our questions and concerns. Any questions and concerns were answered by all of the staff. The hotel was exceptionally clean and modern, no rugs, etc. The only complaint would be how many stops needed to get to the famous attractions, take the bus, saves alot of headache. The French people are wonderful and very helpful. Will go back many times

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Bus travel easy 69 and 76 near hotel to famous sights, Louve, Musee D'Orsay, Eiffel tower, etc. Get bus map and times. Metro ( 2) changes from hotel, takes time, use it if going to Gare deLyon or some other travel needs. Purchase carnets, pack of 10 for $12 euros at metro station if you take metro. Bus tx can be bought on bus.
